Carly has been through a horrendous ordeal; her cousin has disappeared, and her family were murdered in front of her by a crazy neighbour.
She tells the police that James Andres had been stalking her, then he killed her family and kidnapped her and that she has killed him. However, she refuses to reveal where the body is.
Once in custody, Carly agrees to a meeting with a female reporter, Vanessa St John. Carly insists she tells the whole story in her words. She talks about the dog and the box, but where are the dog and box now?

My Rating: 5 Stars
In a world without magic, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the vicious king who rules from his throne of glass but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she will be released from prison to serve as the King’s Champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.
The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her and a princess from a faraway land will befriend her. But something evil dwells in the castle – and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival – and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.
