For those of you who haven't yet heard, Bloomsbury Children's will be releasing FOUR prequel e-novellas leading up to the August 7th, 2012 release of Throne of Glass (beginning with The Assassin and the Pirate Lord)! While each novella is stand-alone, all four novellas form the arc of Celaena (the heroine of Throne of Glass) going from the world's most feared assassin to being thrown into the Salt Mines. You can find out more information about the novellas over here!
THE ASSASSIN AND THE PIRATE LORD
On a remote island in a tropical sea, Celaena Sardothien, feared assassin, has come for retribution. She's been sent by the Assassin's Guild to collect on a debt they are owed by the Lord of the Pirates. But when Celaena learns that the agreed payment is not in money, but in slaves, her mission suddenly changes—and she will risk everything to right the wrong she's been sent to bring about.
Doesn't that make you want to read it? (Because it SHOULD.)
And in honor of the release of the first novella, we're giving away an e-copy of The Assassin and the Pirate Lord! Just fill out the form below!
