Title: Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2)
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Published: August 27th, 2013
Reading Format: Paperback
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.
Review / Thoughts:
I can’t believe I finished the second book already. I’m madly in love with this series and I’m just starting the third book as we speak. I still don’t understand why I waited this long but thank god I own all of them [minus the prequel but that will change soon].
Crown of Midnight was both heart wrenching and jaw dropping at the same time. I still can’t believe one of the characters died – actually two are but damn. I was almost in tears and heart broken like Celaena was throughout the entire book after that dreadful scene.
