After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years, then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Choal, challenging and exhilaration. But Celaena's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her . . . but it's the gruff Captain Choal Westfall who seems to understand her best. Then one of the other contestants turn up dead . . . quickly followed by another.

Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.
