Crown of Midnight By Sarah J Maas


Assassins AND magic? What more could you want out of a story? Here’s a summary from Goodreads, which will tell you about the plot of the story better than I ever could (and this is once again the second book in a series, so go forth and read Throne of Glass first!):

“After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king’s contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes. Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king’s bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she’s given a task that could jeopardize everything she’s come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon — forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice. Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?”

This book is so chalk full of information and thickening plot lines that you can’t help but devour all the meat you’re given. It keeps you on your toes about who you should trust, and what the king’s plans are and those of rebel groups. There’s just so much to find out, even up to the very last pages–who is Celaena, really? Not to mention all the action, blood and death that comes from an assassin heroine. Oh, AND the whole Celaena/Chaol/Dorian dynamic–that’s something to read for. Right as I finished and was left HANGING FROM A CLIFF at the ending, I screamed out loud because I am SO desperate to read the rest of Celaena’s story (which I sadly must wait for, considering CoM just came out last month). A killer 5/5 stars 😉
