The Assassin and the Pirate Lord is an enjoyable read that starts off slowly but picks up steam as it goes along. The story itself isn’t too bad but I could guess what would happen almost as soon as “slaves” were mentioned. For this reason I knocked off a star because knowing the ending just as the story is getting started is never a good sign. Despite this, the pacing and writing style is really good and makes for a a very entertaining and lighthearted read. Since it’s a short story there’s not much in the way of character development but the characters themselves are memorable and left me thinking about them long after I finished the book. I LOVED Celaena and Sam! Both of them are loud, funny, outspoken, brave and shamelessly rude to each other. In short, real. Their relationship and banter with each other is as hilarious as it’s infuriating. Just like all the best stories, their romance takes a backseat to the main storyline but creeps up on you and before you know it you’re rooting for them to get together and cheering them on to the finish line. And in my case, naming their ship Samaena. Honestly, I was so frustrated nothing actually happened between them. I just wanted to knock their oblivious little heads together! But I still love them and I’m still rooting for them. Are you on board too? Please leave a comment if you are. I want to see how many supporters there are before ToG ;) Overall this novella is a great opener for Throne of Glass that lets you get to know Celaena before the events in the actual book and makes for a fun and fast-paced read that anyone who likes YA will appreciate :)

Sarah J. Maas takes the reader on an adrenaline-filled, fast-paced adventure with the world's most famous assassin, Celaena Sardothien. With rich and vivid prose, Maas extends a warm invitation to fans of Throne of Glass to step into Celaena's world two years before the events leading to her capture and imprisonment. I enjoyed the opportunity offered by this novella to observe a version of Celaena I had never seen before: younger, still unpolished, and struggling to balance her idealistic views of the world with the harsher demands of her assassin training. I can't wait to see what the remaining novellas have in store--and to see how the rest of Celaena's story unfolds.

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord was my first glimpse into the world of Throne of Glass that author Sarah J. Maas has created. I fell in love with Celaena’s character immediately. I loved that she was this ruthless assassin who didn’t care what anyone thought. To be honest I wasn’t sure what I thought of Sam at first. It took me a little while to warm up to him. I liked the setting of this novella a lot. I have always had a fascination with pirates. From Blackbeard to Jack Sparrow, I have always loved pirate lore. I liked that this novella took place on an Island that the Lord of the Pirates rules over. The way Maas described the island made it sound like it could be a real place somewhere in the Caribbean.

A Fun, Quick Look at Caelena Pre-ToG My Initial Reaction...  I really enjoyed The Assassin and the Pirate Lord - it was neat to see Caelena before the events of Throne of Glass. The Good...  I feel like The Assassin and the Pirate Lord was just a great way to get to know Caelena better. You definitely are fine jumping into The Throne of Glass without reading this, but you get a much better sense of who she is here. You also get a sense of how she's changed. I mean, I remember her being an arrogant girl - but I feel like it's tempered a bit between The Assassin and the Pirate Lord and The Throne of Glass and I can only imagine that the events inbetween the two books had something to do with that. I'm also enjoying getting to see a bit of the Assassin's Guild that she belonged to and especially the other people. I'm pretty sure that the character I just got to know in The Assassin and the Pirate Lord - Sam - was the person she talks about a lot in The Throne of Glass, I just have to wait and see how the rest of the novellas unfold to be sure. The story for The Assassin and the Pirate Lord was really good too - it's a novella and yet it managed to have a lot of action, great dialogue, and character building. The Bad...  If I were to have any complaints about The Assassin and the Pirate Lord - and I really don't have many, this was a solid novella - it would be that I don't like Caelena as much at this point in her life as I did in The Throne of Glass. The mask/hood getup was ridiculous and her attitude was a little over the top. But she redeems herself for me because she cared so much about the slaves.  Also could it have gone on just a little longer, please? I wanted to know what happened when they went back home! Concluding Sentiments...  The Assassin and the Pirate Lord was a solid novella and amps up my anticipation to read more of the series.

I highly recommend you read the short novellas before reading Throne of Glass.  It gives a lot of much needed back story.
