This was such a awesome book about assassins.
We follow one assassin called celaena who is serving a year in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes. One day she is sent for by prince Dorian. She is his chosen champion to fight out a battle with others to become the kings assassin and bid his wishes.
She is thin and doesn’t have much muscle at the beginning, but through her training and the good food she soon bulks up and remembers everything she was taught.
She has to compete with the other champions through tests and who ever looses gets cut and sent back to where they came from.
The one thing Celaena wants is freedom and if she wins all she has to do is serve the king for 5 years and then she gets her freedom that she has always wanted.
At her time in the castle prince Dorian gets close to her and wants to get to know her more, whats underneath the assassin shell.
Throughout the contest strange deaths start to appear. 2 days before a test one champion is brutally killed with these weird symbols around them.
Celaena is curious about what is killing them.
This is a action packed fun book with hidden magic.
