Review by wyvernfriend
Some stories from before the series proper starts, sets Celaena up as a character and some of her background. The first, the Assassin and the Pirate Lord is a situation where Celaena is sent on a mission by her boss to deal with a pirate but she subverts the deal, angering both.The Assassin and the Healer was my favourite, Celaena helps a bar girl find her dreams.The Assassin and the Desert has her in the Desert learning more about assassination, and about betrayal.The Assassin and the Underworld finds her taking on a mission that makes her start to question her boss and his morals.The Assassin and the Empire has her take on a commission that will finish with her in the Salt Mines, but the path there is twisty and the mission has layers.I liked it, probably would have been best read after the first book and then to read the first book again before continuing with the series. Still interesting.
