The Assassin’s Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5) by Sarah J. Mass | Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Me before reading this: Why is everyone being so dramatic over this? I doubt it’s that bad . . .

Everyone else: Oh just you wait creepy smile emojis

Me after reading this: WHAT THE HELL YOU ALL ARE CRUEL. WHAT. THE. HELL. MY HEART I CANT I DIDN’T SIGN UP FOR THIS. I HATE YOU. ADFSGHJGDAF NO UNGODLY AMOUNT OF COOKIES WILL EVER MAKE ME RECOVER FROM THIS. I TAKE BACK EVERYTHING AHHH NOOOOO😭😭😭

I hate you guys.

I am broken.


I don’t know how to move on from this—NO actually, I will never be able to move on. THIS DESTROYED ME AND I DO NOT LIKE HAVING MY HEART CRUSHED AND STOMPED ON.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT ISN’T FUN


I AM FOREVER BROKEN.


This will not at all be a proper review is it ever tho
This will consist of me screaming every time I say or THINK of him.😭😭😭
SO don’t expect much from me except for that

It’s been a little over 24 hours since I read that scene AND I CAN’T GET OVER IT.😩
AM I PROBABLY BEING OVERDRAMATIC ABOUT IT??? YES
WILL I STOP??? NO NEVER

To the outside world I look like a lunatic BUT EVERYONE ELSE WHO READ THIS WILL UNDERSTAND MY PAINN ASDFGHJKL I CANT STOP CRYING. I HATE THE SOUL CRUSHER AKA SJM.

Calm down, Lia. Calmm downnn.


Putting all my craziness aside, this was such a beautiful novella and I want to beat myself up for NOT READING IT SOONER. IM AN IDIOT.🤦‍♀️

And I’m currently rereading Throne of Glass right now and ohmygod . . . THERE ARE SO MANY REFERENCES TO TAB. The two hundred slaves freed, Ansel of Briarcliff, the Silent Assassins, and . . . Sam Cortland.

oh yeah, and this made me HATE AROBYNN A THOUSAND TIMES MORE THAN I ALREADY DID. THAT EVIL BASTARD DOESN’T DESERVE TO LIVE A SECOND LONGER

But omg rereading Throne of Glass right now I can actually appreciate/love Celaena way more than before especially after all she’s been through.🥺 I love this girl so much.😭💞

Now my journey going through these novellas:

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Assassin and the Healer: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Assassin and the Desert: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Assassin and the Underworld: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Assassin and the Empire: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


SAMLAENA IS THE ONE TRUE PAIR AND NOBODY CAN CHANGE MY MIND.

THANK YOU SARAH FOR BREAKING MY PATHETIC MORTAL SOUL.


Now excuse me while I listen to this SAMLAENA inspired song by Victoria Carbol and shrivel up and die. (Thank you Laura for destroying me😃🔫)


the ONE benefit that came out of this is that I’m no longer 5 books behind schedule
