After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.
Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.
Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

Unique, dark, interesting and humorous! Great read!
I really enjoyed this book! In the beginning I was a bit doubtful, as I wasnt too fond of the main character's vain comments. However, I grew to love her throughout the book. Although the setting and idea is seen often in similar books, the characters and plot were entirely unique. The ending was perfect, and I'm dying to hear about her future adventures.
Expensive, but a good book
This book was by far the best one I have read so far. I love the chemistry between her and the prince ^^ I just can't wait for the second book in this series :)
