Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his

empire, each sponsored by a member of the kings council. If she beats
her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for
three 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
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.
