a review of The Assassin’s Blade

I finished this book last night, but I needed the night to really absorb everything that happened. Since I read Throne of Glass first, I already knew what was coming, but it doesn’t mean it didn’t hurt any less. Yet again Celaena Sardothien, proves why she is the best and also proves that although the is the feared Ardarlan’s Assassin, she is still incredibly human. She is selfish, confident, insecure at times though, but despite all of that she has an extremely good heart and she remembers where she came from. At times when I read the book, I felt very motivated. I want to be like her, strong. It was a suggestion from a fellow book lover like myself that I read The Assassin’s Blade before reading the second book in the series, and I’m happy I obliged. I now know a little more about Celaena, and will understand her journey a little more than before. Don’t get me wrong though, this book was amazing but it also ripped my heart out. I was having a dilemma before trying to decide who I like more: Dorian or Chaol, but I believe from now on Sam will always have a special place in my heart that no other fictional character can touch. To quote Sarah J. Mass and Celaena: “She would tuck Sam into her heart, a bright light for her to take out whenever things were darkest.”
