The first installment of the Throne of Glass Novellas.


Calaena, a former assassin from Adarlan, has been imprisoned for over a year in the Endovier salt mines. Chaol Westfall has come to rescue her in the name of Prince Dorian. The prince seeks to have her represent him, in a competition that his father is hosting. The competition is essentially a search for the next King’s Champion. The King’s Champion is basically a fancy title, for the one who carries out the King’s thankless tasks for a living.

Dorian’s father the King, is a rather obnoxious and arrogant man, who has conquered many kingdoms through the lands of Erelia. The King has also forbidden the use of magic within his realm. Therefore, anyone caught even reading a about the subject, receives the appropriate consequences. Though Calaena gained her reputation of being the greatest assassin in the land by disobeying her previous King. Calaena is still a worthy candidate to be champion, as her skills as an assassin are unmatched. Calaena has been escorted by Chaol to Dorian, to be interrogated about her possible participation in the event. She agrees and chooses to operate under the alias Lillian Gordania to hide her true identity.

As to be expected Lillian must now recover from her time spent working in the salt mines. Her body is in bad condition, she has also lost a lot of weight and it is difficult for her to retain foods. Lillian’s new dwelling is at the castle of the King, along with the other competitors. She is soon very aware of the great challenge which lies ahead of her, not to add, she is the lone female. Lillian has to avail against many powerfully built men if she hopes to achieve her goal. However, Chaol has orchestrated suitable training, to allow her to return to former level of skill.

Lillian maintains a low profile when the competition begins, as requested by Chaol. She, however, does have a moment where she displays her bravery, as she rescues a victim of potentially her greatest rival in the competition Cain. Cain is the competitor chosen by the King’s most trusted adviser. As the event continues, there is an obvious show of underhanded tactics at work, as champions are being discovered dead within the castle. There is also a love triangle brewing, as both Chaol the Captain of the Royal Guard and Prince Dorian, fall under the spell of Lillian’s charms.

Lillian begins to investigate the mysterious killings, but as she gets closer to the truth she is met with great danger. Cain and the sinister monster, Ridderak attempt to murder Calaena but luckily she is able to escape narrowly with her life.

It is discovered that Cain, has been using demons to weaken his opponents before he has fought them. Lillian being his next opponent is weakened the same as the others. Can she find a way overcome the vile or will she meet the same gruesome fate as the other competitors?
