Celaena Sardothien is a young girl with a dark and tumultuous past. When she is called upon by the Prince of Adarlan, Dorian Havilliard, she knows her life is about to change. Known as Adarlan’s greatest assassin, Celaena's name and face are recognized almost everywhere. Prince Dorian has a task for Celaena
and it requires her to keep her impressive identity secret. A task that shouldn't be hard considering she spent the last year barely surviving as a nobody slave in Endover's mines. Dorian needs for Celaena to fight against thieves and assassins in his father's court to become the King's Champion and right hand man. This would give him inside information and access to his father’s plans that he is so desperate for. It could also very well be Celaena’s only way out of her life of slavery, so she accepts his offer.
What's four more years under the King's thumb? If she could survive Endover, she could survive anything. As the most hopeful contender and endorsement from the Crown Prince, Celaena is treated with much more respect upon entering the King’s court than she is accustomed to. The book follows her journey as she struggles to come to terms with her new life at the palace while also competing for the title of Champion.
Along the way she makes a few high profile friends, questions everything she has ever known, and and discovers a dark and terrible secret.There is a sinister plan afoot and it involves the King. Celaena begins to question her future as now she is not only fighting for her freedom, but also for her life. Will she overcome the terrible plans laid out for her and save her friends?
