Synopsis: "Nothing is a coincidence. Everything has a purpose. You were meant to come to this castle, just as you were meant to be an assassin."

When magic has gone from the world, and a vicious king rules from his throne of glass, an assassin comes to the castle. She does not come to kill, but to win her freedom. If she can defeat twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition to find the greatest assassin in the land, she will become the King's Champion and be released from prison.

Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her.

And a princess from a foreign land will become the one thing Celaena never thought she'd have again: a friend.

But something evil dwells in the castle—and it's there to kill. When her competitors start dying, horribly, one by one, Celaena's fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival—and a desperate quest to root out the source of the evil before it destroys her world.

My Review: When it started this book I had really forgotten pretty much everything that had happened during the story. It has been some time since I read it and I was overjoyed to be able to read it again. I have to say that this book is one killer novel that I could not put down.  I loved all of the characters and just how much Celaena has grown since the events in the novella. She has spent one full year in the salt mines of Endovier and is now on the path of the goddess I guess you could say.  The author does so much to bring these books to life as you read from amazing lines to beautiful descriptions. But it isn't over done which makes this story even better.  I fell in love with Westfall the Captian of the Guard, the Crown Prince Dorian, and Celaena all over again!
