Summary provided by Goodreads: 

Celaena Sardothien is her kingdom’s most feared assassin. Though she works for the powerful and ruthless Assassin’s Guild, Celaena yields to no one and trusts only her fellow killer for hire, Sam.

When Celaena’s scheming master, Arobynn Hamel, dispatches her on missions that take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, she finds herself acting independently of his wishes and questioning her own allegiance. Along the way, she makes friends and enemies alike, and discovers that she feels far more for Sam than just friendship. But by defying Arobynn’s orders, Celaena risks unimaginable punishment, and with Sam by her side, he is in danger, too. They will have to risk it all if they hope to escape Arobynn’s clutches and if they fail, they’ll lose not just a chance at freedom, but their lives.

A prequel to Throne of Glass, this collection of five novellas offers listeners a deeper look into the history of this cunning assassin and her enthralling and deadly world.

Novellas Included in The Assassin’s Blade:
The Assassin and the Pirate Lord
The Assassin and the Healer
The Assassin and the Desert
The Assassin and the Underworld
The Assassin and the Empire

Well there you go! Each of the novellas are important and you learn even more about Celaena and actually explains why she acts the way she does in Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, and Heir of Fire. You also get to meet the famous Sam Cortland that we hear about in Throne of Glass. There are no words to describe Sam, except for amazing. Okay, there’s a lot of things you can say about Sam but that’s a long list of beautiful adjectives. I can’t pick a favorite novellas, I liked them all. The Assassin and the Empire is definitely the most painful. It takes place right before Celaena is shipped off to Endovier. I honestly wish you good luck!
