Epic New Fantasy World

Celaena Sardothien is an assassin enslaved in the Endovier salt mines for a year but the Crown Prince comes to recruit her for a competition to become the King's Champion in exchange for her freedom. Celaena is brought into a world of intrigue, death and nightmare. This book and series are filled with unexpected twist and turns that will leave you reeling and asking more question than before.

Celaena is a strong young woman with a smart mouth, love of fine things and an insatiable hunger for books. She is wise beyond her years due to her hard life but still manages to get into dangerous situations. Though she is the most deadly assassin in the land most under estimate her purely because she is an eighteen-year-old girl. Even though she is a master killer Celaena still loves the same things as any young woman; fine clothes, shoes and food. I personally love her obsession with books as I can really relate to this. She is fast becoming my favourite character of any book or series.

The King is an evil sadistic psychopath who has killed thousands of people in order to gain more and more power. Ten years ago he somehow hid of all the magic in the land and ordered his men to slaughter anyone with magical blood. The mystery of how he got rid of magic slowly gets revealed a little more in each book. He is a very easy character to hate.

This books are great and are fast becoming some of my favourites.
