Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The weekly event is meant to showcase eagerly anticipated upcoming releases…and to spread the word! This week I’m excited about:

The Assassin's BladeTitle: The Assassin’s Blade

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Anticipated Publication Date: March 4th, 2014

Celaena Sardothien is Adarlan’s most feared assassin. As part of the Assassin’s Guild, her allegiance is to her master, Arobynn Hamel, yet Celaena listens to no one and trusts only her fellow killer-for-hire, Sam. In these action-packed novellas – together in one edition for the first time – Celaena embarks on five daring missions. They take her from remote islands to hostile deserts, where she fights to liberate slaves and seeks to avenge the tyrannous. But she is acting against Arobynn’s orders and could suffer an unimaginable punishment for such treachery. Will Celaena ever be truly free? Explore the dark underworld of this kick-ass heroine to find out.

All five novellas together in print for the first time? Heck yes. I’ve been meaning to start in on this series for a while (the first book is gathering dust on my shelf) and this collection looks like the perfect place to start. Plus the cover art is beautiful! I’m really liking the redesign for this series.
