The Assassin and the Healer is not as good as the first one. The story goes on and on forever even though it's the shortest of them all, I still felt this novella was overly long. Celaena Sardothien meets the Healer. In spite of being cold-hearted at first, the assassin does something that changed my perspective of her, and I kinda liked that.
If I'm right, Chaol's short story will probably overlap with a character from thi ...more
Finally I am getting around to reading the adventures of my dear Celaena Sardothien. LOWKEY, I kind of love the assassin more than the queen, but that doesn't mean that I don't love the queen.
I wanted to read it before I read Empire of Storms BUT I kind of got distracted with other books that were coming out around the same time. I am not a huge fan of novellas, but I do know that some of the characters introduced in the last book were first introduced in some of these novella ...more
Ugh, Celaena was such a disgusting, stuck up, stupid cow in this. I usually like her arrogant, opinionated attitude (it's a refreshing change from the usual oh so modest goody-goody heroine) but it really irritated this time around. When the giddy cow saved a young barmaid (Yrene) from being attacked by four men the douche blamed Yrene for them going after her. The victim blaming attitude really pissed me off, apparently Yrene had the attack coming because she deigned to go outside and t ...more
I was waiting for something to happen, anything! But no, this novella was just a reminder of how perfect Celeana is from the healer's POV. And after a few hundred times, it gets boring.
The extra star is for the ending which picked up a bit, but not enough to redeem this novella.

This was the novella that felt a little pointless to me. Because of Celaena's actions in The Assassin and the Pirate Lord, she is sent away on a punishment mission. While waiting for a boat to take her to her ...more
No matter how many times I reread Sarah's books, the writing always amazes me. I missed reading about Celaena as Celaena. And I loved this story. Can't wait to see more of Yrene.
3 of 5 stars (Please read my rating system further below). WELL LET'S HOPE THAT SHE ACTUALLY WENT TO HEALING SCHOOL AND MADE USE OF CELEANA'S HELP. I'LL BE SO HAPPY IF SHE (I FORGOT HER NAME) COMES BACK INTO THE SERIES.
My rating system: (I do use half stars.)
5 - I do not use the 5 star. Not because a book might not be worthy, but because a book is never perfect.
4 - I loved it! There weren't too ...more
Unlike novellas 0.1-0.4, which are essential to the story and need to be read, this one is not essential, and you could skip it if you wanted. Basically, if you've finished them all but aren't ready to let go of these characters, then yeah... go ahead. The good thing is that this one is free, and I'll mention where to find it in a second because THAT was a major hunt for me.

Celeana has been staying at the White Pig Inn, Innish, a small port town, for a few days, her goal is to reach the Red Desert, where she is to meet the Mute Master of Assassins, who'll train her for a month. This is Celeana's punishment for destroying the slave-trade agreement between Arobynn and the Pirate Lord of Skull's Bay.

It was actually an interesting combination, considering that the assassin and the healer are two opposite sides of a coin and they helped each other. Much to my relief, there was a small part of Celaena Sardothien that wanted to make the world a better place, despite the fact that she was the most notorious and also the best protégée of Arobynn, the King of Assassins's, apprentices.
In short, it's a novella without too many bloody fight scenes(of course, beating bad guys didn't count!) and Celaen...more
