5 stars

This novella takes place around 2 years before Throne of Glass, and sixteen year old Celaena Sardothien is just as kick-ass as in the full-lenght novel, if not more. At 16 years old, Celaena has already established a reputation the barely-30 year old Pirate Lord would kill for. As Adarlan's greatest and most notorious assassin, Celaena Sardothien and her partner in crime Sam is send to retrieve a payment from the Pirate Lord, a sort of replacement, for the loss of some, to us, relatively unknown assassins lives. 
When Celaena finds out that the payment is and people, slaves, and not in money, she - and a reluctant Sam - sets out to spoil the deal.
Apart from the plot being a page-turner - it is Sarah Maas for God's sake - it also portraits Celaena beautifully, and shows us some of Sam, a boy we have only heard of until now.
Since this novella is short, I won't dive into all too many descriptions of characters. But let's just say Celaena is her awesome, complex self, Sam is a good supporting character, and Rolff is a great villain! The writing is Sarah's usual standard, top-notch, the pacing it perfect, great plot, and the world-building as usual so creative I can't praise it enough.
Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic!
