Review: Ah! This book! Having already read ToG and CoM I knew what happened and a little about Celaena's time with Arobynn at the Assassin's Keep but I never guessed I would love this book so much! My favorite parts are clearly the Pirate Lord and the Red Desert but the book as a whole is a must read! And if you're asking, read this first! It will help you get to know some of the characters referred to later on, and will help you avoid spoilers, especially in ToG.

I love the characters, and how Celaena's character really shows through in this one. While self centered and vain at times, she is also caring and thoughtful. She is able to work hard to earn her keep and put others before herself when there is a need. She also cares for those less fortunate than herself.
