Good start!

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord - Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars. I'm really intrigued by this series which grabbed me from the start. Cel is an assassin - one of the best. She hides behind a mask, guarding her beauty and youth since she's just 16. As we begin the story, one of her best friends and fellow assassin - Ben is killed. 

 

But she can't mourn for long and is sent by her master to a pirate Lord's island on a mission.

 

Little does she know her master is dealing with the slave trade and he's sent her to fetch some slaves for him. But Cel has different thoughts and decides to free the slaves with her reluctant partner, Sam.

 

Sam's also an assassin and resents that Cel is 2nd in command. They truly don't see eye to eye until they decide to go against their master and free the slaves. But can they pull it off? Or is their good deed guaranteeing their demise at the crafty pirate Lord's hand?
