Crown of Midnight

Author: Sarah J. Maas 
Pages: 418
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Format: Hardcover
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Summary (from Goodreads): From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil. 

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart. 

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie...and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.



I never expected to enjoy the second book in the series more than the first, but that is exactly what happened with Crown of Midnight. The plot twisted and turned and wrenched my heart out along with it - I was SO happy, and then I really, really wasn't. And if you've read Crown of Midnight, you know exactly what I'm talking about. 

I thought I predicted that ending, but NOPE. I was not prepared for that, guys. Also, I was kind of torn between wanting to throttle Chaol and wanting to hug him. Celaena too, if I'm being honest. 

This book had my emotions in a death-grip, and I loved every minute of it.

If you haven't already, check out Sarah J. Maas' incredible Throne of Glass series. I promise you will not be disappointed.
