In the third prequel of The Throne of Glass the story of Celaena starts right after she returns from her summer in the Red Desert. Before she gets the chance to announce to her master that she can now pay for her freedom she is assigned one last mission. It seems like a good chance to help fight slavery and reunite with Sam, but as the past has shown not everything is what it seems, and almost everyone is ready to betray the young assassin.
I loved this prequel as much as the rest of them. It was good to finally see the city that Celaena lives, walk through the streets, travel through the rooftops and swim, yes swim, in the sewers. I was really curious about it because the two previous prequels were taking place elsewhere.
Another good thing about this novella is that Sam is back and this time the relationship between the two assassin is more intimate and goes into a whole other level. We also get to see a Celaena in her natural environment, doing things she loves to do, like playing music and going to the theater. I also think we had a brief glimpse of the prince, and if I am right...oh my, we are in for a treat in the actual book.
