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 punishment, she is staying at the White Pig Inn, where she meets a very unique and kindhearted girl named Yrene.

I really liked Yrene, and the little bit of her back-story that we received, but this novella just completely felt like filler for me. Maybe we will see Yrene in this series eventually, and then this story will be a lot more meaningful, but as it stands, this story felt the weakest in this bind-up.

Sandy *The world could end while I was reading and I would never notice* A very erratic series by the look of your ratings.


message 2: by Kanna (new)

Kanna Brandon Yrene is seen countless times in the 6th book release, Tower of Dawn.


Heather I was surprised when I realised that the sixth book was gonna be based on yrene (the healer) from this novella
