Sarah J Maas's novels have been an online sensation with bloggers the world over hearing about her. Her protagonist is 18 year old Celaena; beautiful but deadly and destined for greatness but only if she can free herself from the life sentence she's serving... Fast-paced and epic in stature this is not to be missed.
Definitely a 14+ read in our opinion.
Meet Celaena Sardothien. Beautiful. Deadly. Destined for greatness. In the dark, filthy salt mines of Endovier, an eighteen-year-old girl is serving a life sentence. She is a trained assassin, the best of her kind, but she made a fatal mistake. She got caught.
Young Captain Westfall offers her a deal: her freedom in return for one huge sacrifice. Celaena must represent the prince in a to-the-death tournament - fighting the most gifted thieves and assassins in the land. Live or die, Celaena will be free. Win or lose, she is about to discover her true destiny. But will her assassin's heart be melted?
