Goodreads: “Meet the Assassin: beautiful, defiant, destined for greatness. Celaena Sardothien has challenged her master. Now she must pay the price. Her journey to the Red Desert will be an arduous one, but it may change the fate of her cursed world forever…”
I so want to see Yrene Towes again, she seems like such an interesting character – not to mention that I totally sismance her with Celeana.
Celeana has been staying at the White Pig Inn, Innish, a small port town, for a few days, her goal is to reach the Red Desert, where she is to meet the Mute Master of Assassins, who’ll train her for a month. This is Celeana’s punishment for destroying the slave-trade agreement between Arobynn and the Pirate Lord of Skull’s Bay.
Yrene, a girl whose mother was killed for being a healer, works a the Inn, as she wants to win enough coin to be able to go to Torre Cesme, where she can learning the art of healing. However, her boss is constantly cutting her salary and tips, and raising the rent of her small room.
Their paths cross and Celeana changes Yrene’s life.
“For wherever you need to go – and then some. The world needs more healers.”
