The Assassin and the Pirate Lord (Throne of Glass #0.1) by Sarah J Maas

A Throne of Glass novella.

On a remote island in a tropical sea, Celaena Sardothien, feared assassin, has come for retribution. She’s been sent by the Assassin’s Guild to collect on a debt they are owed by the Lord of the Pirates. But when Celaena learns that the agreed payment is not in money, but in slaves, her mission suddenly changes—and she will risk everything to right the wrong she’s been sent to bring about.

4 stars out of 5

   I instantly loved Celaena. She's a young woman who has dominated a male profession. How could you not love that? And I love her hard exterior and superiority. It fits her character so well. Rolfe and Celaena's banter was perfect and entertaining.
   This book kept me on my toes about what was going to happen next. What was Celaena planning? How will Rolfe react? How will Sam react? How badly will Arobynn punish Sam and Celaena?
   The only thing I disliked about this novella was Ben. I would have loved to get to know his character more and what he meant to Celaena. Is he a father figure? How much involvement did he have in her training? I hope we learn more about him in the next books.
