Celaena accept and together with Prince Dorian and Chaol she went to
the Glass Castle at Rifthold. The Prince gave her rooms in the stone castle. It
was much bigger than she anticipated. Her chambers consisted of a bedroom
with an attached bathing chamber and a dressing room, a small dining room,
and a music and gaming room.
The Prince thought that its better not to reveal Celaenas true identity, so
the Prince introduce Celaena to everyone as Lilian Gordaina, a daughter of a
wealthy merchant from Bellhaven and also a jewel thief.
While Celaena was walking around the castle, she found the Royal Library.
The Library was so huge and full of books, but without permissions from
either the King or the Crown Prince, she cannot read the books, so she wrote
a letter to the Crown Prince, asking for permission to borrow books from the
library. The Crown Prince grant her permission to read all the books that she
wants to read.
Celaena met Lady Kaltain Rompier. Kaltain was engaged to Duke
Perrington but she secretly wants Dorian because she wants to be Queen.
Then, she met the King and the other competitors at the official meeting to
mark the beginning of the competition.
The training starts with a running test. Cain, the arrogant soldier wins
easily while Celaena vomits after the test because she hadnt train for one
year because she was in Endovier. Chaol saw her vomits but he didnt say
anything.
Celaena and Chaol met Nehemia, the Princess of Eyllwe who came to
learn about their language and their customs. Celaena can speaks Eyllwe
language that she learned at Endovier. Celaena get along perfectly with the
Princess and they become best friends.
Then, things get weird when one of the champion was found dead with
their body missing their organs.
The first test was archery. Celaena pass easily because archery was one
of the first skills Arobynn had taught her.

Ten days since her arrival at Rifthold, one of the champion tried to flee
from the palace but before he could reach the glass door, the guards killed
him.
Meanwhile, the Queen has decided that Dorian needs to marry a girl and
she already list potential brides for Dorian, but Dorian didnt like the idea so
he just said to his mother that he will think about it and leave her mother.
Dorian visits Celaena in her chambers and found her playing piano
beautifully. They talk, but Celaena eventually sends him away. When Dorian
asks Celaena about her piece, Celaena told her about Sam, a boy that she
loved but dies a year ago.
The second test is climbing a very high wall to get a flag. While getting to
the top, Nox, Celaenas friend is thrown off the wall, but Celaena saves him.
After the test, Philipa, Celaenas servant brought a news that a champion
had been found dead in a servants stairwell, brutally mauled and
dismembered.
