APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Meet a truly kick-ass heroine. In this opening part of an enthralling fantasy series, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is given the chance to escape a life sentence of slavery by competing to be the king of Erilea’s hired killer. It’s an opportunity that plunges her into a riveting web of murder and intrigue set in Sarah J. Maas’s intricately crafted medieval world. As a highly skilled, fearless executioner, Celaena isn’t a typical teenager but her sarcastic wit and impetuousness make her very relatable. The slow-burning camaraderie and sharp banter she shares with the Crown Prince Dorian and her trainer Chaol Westfall also gives this gripping adventure plenty of warmth.

A nice book
A compelling read with a likeable antagonist.
Probably more suited to a female audience, but good either way.
Downloaded this book to take on holiday with me. I enjoy reading but I find it hard to get into a book unless it grips me within the first few chapters. This story had me from the start and buy the end I bought the other prequels for 99p each just so I didn't have to stop reading about the characters I'd grown to love. This is a book that will grip you from start to finish and leave you begging for more. Similarities to Trudi Canavan and her magicians guild series. Well worth a read!
A great book and can't wait for more in the series!!
