Free (Sony) The Assassin and the Desert [High Fantasy Adventure]
The Assassin and the Desert by Sarah J. Maas is the 2nd of four tie-in novellas to her upcoming high fantasy adventure novel Throne of Glass. This is presumably free courtesy of publisher Bloomsbury, who've presumably also made the 1st novella free @ B&N.
Currently free @ Sony (not available to Canadians). Enjoy it while it lasts as a gift of Sony's price-updating bobble-birds, who giveth and then taketh away when the store says $0 and the cart says $$$, so I'd turn off 1-click if I were you.
After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.
Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's 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 best.

I'd been waiting to borrow this one and now I can just read it right away!
Thanks a lot for letting us know... *off to create Sony account*
edited to add: Now it's also free at Kobo.
