Summary from Goodreads: Contains all five novellas.Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan's most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin's Guild, her allegiance is to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer-for-hire, Sam. In these action-packed novellas - together in one edition for the first time - Celaena embarks on five daring missions. They take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and seeks to avenge the tyrannous. But she is acting against Arobynn's orders and could suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery. Will Celaena ever be truly free? Explore the dark underworld of this kick-ass heroine to find out.

Review: I usually don't read novellas, but I love the Throne of Glass series so much that when I had the chance to read more about Celaena, I couldn't resist. Each novella focuses on a specific event or time in Celaena's life and really helps you understand her. There is action and adventure and darkness. These novellas will give you just enough to keep your hunger sated as you wait for the publication of the next full length novel in the series. While the novellas take place prior to the first novel, I suggest your read them after Throne of Glass.
