it was amazing
Read in January, 2012

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord managed to suck me into Celaena's world and wish the story would never end. Celaena is such an interesting character, and her backstory is intriguing as well. I can tell that Throne of Glass is going to be incredible. We finally have a YA author who can actually write!
This book had humor, action, good storytelling, and great world-building. In a short novella, Maas is able to fully flesh out the world Celaena belongs to, delving into topics like the slave trade, racial divides, and of course, the assassin group Celaena is a part of. Most importantly, here characters seem real; they are multi-dimensional and compelling, which is something you don't see often in YA fantasy these days. I cannot wait to see what Maas has in store for us in the full-length novel!!!!!
