AHHH! The Assassin and the Underworld was the best Throne of Glass novella so far. Sam and Celaena were almost too much for me in this one and I can’t believe how attached I’ve become to him. The ending was predictable but like I say, if it’s well done that’s not an issue. And Sarah J. Maas delivered just as she continuously has in every book of hers I’ve read. I cannot recommend this book series enough! ( )

"In the silence of her bedroom, she swore an oath to the moonlight that if Sam were hurt, no force in the world would her back from slaughtering everyone responsible."
I think this is the best novella so far. I still have to read the last one but this.. This made me love Sam a whole lot. I can't convey enough how much my heart hurts now..

"The moment I woke up after he beat me, I realized I have to leave. Because I was going to kill him if I didn't. But I couldn't." He studied her face. "Not until you came back. Not until I know you were alright- until I saw that you were safe."
My heart. Be ready. You're going to get broken. I just knew it. T_T And I really hate Arobynn!!!!Argh.

"I love you," he repeated shaking her again. "I have for years. And he hurt you and made me watch because he's always known how I felt, too. And if I asked you to pick, you'd choose Arobynn, and I. Can't. Take. It."
Really, I think my masochistic side is showing because even if it'll hurt so much, I want to read the last novella. Ahhhh. Bring it on. ( )
