The Shadow Warrior perk conflicts with Shadowcloak of Nocturnal. With Shadowcloak of Nocturnal active, crouching when seen will cause both Shadowcloak of Nocturnal and Shadow Warrior to activate, but when Shadow Warrior wears off, it erroneously removes both invisibility effects. The secluded courtyard outside of Dragonsreach in Whiterun is patrolled by a single guard who walks the front half of the perimeter. One can shadow this guard on their patrol route.

Throne of Glass follows Celaena Sardothien, an 18-year-old assassin in the Kingdom of Adarlan. After a year of suffering for her crimes in a slave camp called Endovier, she accepts the offer of Crown Prince Dorian Haviliard, the King of Adarlan's son, to compete with other assassins and thieves for a chance to serve as the King's Champion, and eventually gain her freedom after four years in the King's service. This leads her to form unexpected bonds with Chaol, the Captain of the Guard, and Dorian, the Crown Prince of Adarlan. Over time, Celaena is drawn into a conspiracy and a series of battles, leading to discoveries surrounding both the Kingdom and herself. [1] Books [ edit ] Main series [ edit ] No. Sometimes, certain characters may discover, after the fact, the Dragonborn has stolen something. Unlike cases where the theft is detected immediately and guards are called to arrest the thief, here the Dragonborn does not receive a bounty; instead, the character will pay three hired thugs (one of which will have a Contract in their inventory) to "teach a lesson" to the perpetrator. Celaena beats Ansel, of course, and she basically saves everyone. She tells Ansel she will kill her if she isn’t gone by twenty minutes, but she actually doesn’t shoot at her until after twenty-one minutes, because she’s nice. Leaving stealth mode (even several rooms away from anyone) and then stealing something may result in a bounty. Taking place during the events of Empire of Storms, Chaol Westfall travels to the Southern Continent with Nesryn Faliq to seek treatment from the gifted healers there, and persuade the Southern Continent to ally with him and his friends in the brewing war against Erawan. Yrene Towers' attempts of healing him lead to her becoming entangled in Chaol's past, despite her own reservations against his loyalty to the very nation that prosecuted her family. Meanwhile, Nesryn improves relations with her family during her stay, and befriends Prince Sartaq.

Goodreads Summary:

The author ultimately designed Celaena as a highly capable character whose talents also form a basis for numerous faults. In interviews preceding the series' release, Maas noted her heroine's issues with "impatience" and "vanity". [27] She also suggested that Celaena would grow while adjusting to her new role. [26] In addition to Celaena's skills as an assassin, Maas wanted the character to have several traits and hobbies befitting her age, [29] including a fondness for "shopping, books, and fine dining", as well as a "penchant for getting into trouble." [30] Technically, The Assassin’s Blade are prequel novellas to the Throne of Glass series, but I would say they are absolutely necessary to your understanding (and enjoyment) of the series, since they contain crucial information about Celaena’s life before Endovier. The book contains five prequel novellas: The Assassin and the Pirate Lord, The Assassin and the Healer, The Assassin and the Desert, The Assassin and the Underworld and The Assassin and the Empire.

We start at the Assassin’s Keep where Arobynn Hamel’s six most important assassins are gathered in the middle of the night to find out that another assassin has been caught, and that Ben, Arobynn’s second in command, has been killed. Celaena and Sam Cortland fight, because that’s what they do, and Celaena goes to retrieve Ben’s body because she’s better than all of them combined. Chase, Serena (August 16, 2012).

Retrieved August 16, 2012.Just because the Throne of Glass series is complete doesn’t mean Sarah J. Maas is done writing fantasy, or even done with Erilea.

If she hopes to escape Arobynn’s clutches, Celaena will have to put her faith in her wits and her blade . . . knowing that if she fails, she’ll lose not just a chance at freedom but her life.

In anticipation of the series' debut, Bloomsbury released e-book editions of four prequel novellas— The Assassin and the Pirate Lord, The Assassin and the Desert, The Assassin and the Underworld, and The Assassin and the Empire—between January and July 2012.
