When the King of the Assassins gives Celaena Sardothien a special assignment that will help fight slavery in the kingdom, she jumps at the chance to strike a blow against an evil practice. The misson is a dark and deadly affair which takes Celaena from the rooftops of the city to the bottom of the sewer--and she doesn't like what she finds there.
My Spoiler Review:
Finally we learn what has become of Sam. He’s alive and Cel couldn’t be happier. But, before she can celebrate, she’s still got to deal with her ornery Master.
This is where my frustration grows. Cel just doesn't get it. She's known as being the best assassin, yet can't even gauge when people are lying to her. Once more, she's fallen for her Master's ploys and unwillingly does his bidding in taking a job that's not all it seems.
Just when things look bleak, it's apparent Sam is always by her side, saving her skin. Can Cel please wise up? Jeez, it's just downright improbable that someone can be so gullible.
Still, I enjoyed the end with Cel and Sam finally getting together, though from the summaries of the upcoming books, I know their happiness will be short lived. :(
