Anotácia: After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin 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 are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she'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 Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns 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.

Minirecenzie 2.0

Keďže mám na svojom zozname ešte stále pár kníh o ktoré sa s vami chcem podeliť, no z nejakého dôvodu si ich už detailne nepamätám alebo o nich nemám veľa čo povedať, rozhodla som sa priniesť ďalšiu várku minirecenzií. Tento krát pôjde o zmes autorov aj žánrov.

Torn - Cat Clarke
Táto kniha ma zaujala už od úplne prvého momentu, kedy som o nej počula. Na školskom výlete jedno z dievčat záhadne zmizne a zomrie. Iba malá skupinka jej spolužiačok vie, čo sa skutočne stalo. Tento jemne desivý príbeh mal podľa mňa veľký potenciál, ale bohužiaľ ma nenadchol tak veľmi, ako som dúfala. Predpokladala som, že sa hlavná záhada bude riešiť celú knihu a až na konci sa všetko vysvetlí. V skutočnosti sme sa však všetko dozvedeli už asi v polovici knihy a zvyšok bol iba o tom, ako sa s tým jednotlivé dievčatá vysporiadavali. Napriek tomu však bol koniec trochu prirýchli a otvorený. Jednoducho to nebolo to, čo som od tejto knihy čakala a to ma sklamalo. Ale samotný dej sa mi stále páčil a ak sa necítite na poriadne strašidelné thrillery no chcete to tohto žánru trochu načrieť, táto kniha by mohla byť dobrým medzimostíkom.

Augustové zúčtovanie

Posledný letný mesiac pre mňa nebol, čo sa týka čítania, taký úspešný ako by som chcela. Toto sa tu už však začína opakovať pravidelne, takže prázdniny môjmu čítaniu asi skôr škodia ako pomáhajú. Uvidíme ako sa to vyvinie v budúcnosti.
