After freeing the slaves despite the commands of her master, Celaena is sent to the Red Dessert to train with the Silent Assassin and try to gain a letter of recommendation from their Master. When she arrives there she is surprised to find that despite the toughness of the desert this place is a welcome and warm home to lots of assassins and their caring master. There Celaena will start to make friends and train in order to catch the eye of the master. But besides her training Celaena soon discovers that there are more improtant things she should worry about while she is there. The Silent Assassins have an enemy and this enemy has a spy inside the city walls.
I really loved this story. As much as I did the first one. This had a more bitter feeling and I can't wait to learn a few things about Celaena's past. Reading about her adventures makes me want to know her story and how she become who she is. Can't wait for the third prequel that will be out tomorrow and the actualy book in August...I think.
