The Assassin and the Pirate Lord

“On a remote island in a tropical sea, Celaena Sardothien, feared assassin, has come for retribution. She’s been sent by the Assassin’s Guild to collect on a debt they are owed by the Lord of the Pirates.

But when Celaena learns that the agreed payment is not in money, but in slaves, her mission suddenly changes – and she will risk everything to right the wrong she’s been sent to bring about.”
This is the first of four e-novella’s that introduce Celaena Sardothien before her story truly begins in the debut novel Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I began reading the story on fictionpress.com back when it was “Queen of Glass” and I cannot recommend her stuff enough.

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord is now available to purchase from amazon.com

ONE THROUGH SEVEN

When I was a child, I first discovered the Harry Potter books. I was instantly entranced by the world of witchcraft and wizardry and I was obsessed. I read books one through three quickly, and waited all day for book four to be delivered. For me, book five was a huge disappointment, book six had me feeling indifferent and I never read seven.¬†Well, that’s all changed now. After seeing the movies I decided to re-read the books only my own copies, the white covers from the UK. In the last six or so months, I’ve read all seven books. Books one through three made me remember what it was like to read when I was in grade seven and eight. Book four was as captivating as ever and strange enough I could see the magic in book five. I read book six eagerly and now finished with book seven I can see how great the series truly is.¬†Reading it in succession makes you see the plot points that were scattered throughout. I could see where the story was going and I am amazed at the depth and the beauty of it. As a writer myself I can only hope one day to create a book or series as brilliant as this. But until then, I’ve got these books to read and enjoy over and over again.
