There are times when Heather, Aly & I finish a book, but don’t have time to write a full, comprehensive review… or even a shorter “flashbulb” review. BUT we still want to share our thoughts with you on what we’ve been reading. That’s why every Saturday we’ll be featuring “snippet” reviews — short, sweet, to-the-point reviews that we’ll try to keep to 2-7 sentences. So we hope you enjoy these!!
Taking place between The Assassin and the Pirate Lord and The Assassin and the Desert, this novella provides an interesting view of Celaena from the perspective of Yrene, a downtrodden barmaid who’s lost her home, her family, and who is losing sight of her dreams. While not essential to the greater Throne of Glass storyline, it’s more fantastic character development for Celaena as she struggles with her new-found conscience and personal code of honor… which makes it a necessary read for me. And I’m hoping, very much hoping, that perhaps we’ll run into Yrene again at some point in the series.
