Synopsis from Goodreads:
“A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.
It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend.”
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.
***Will contain SPOILERS for book one.***
The Throne Of Glass series is A MUST read for all fantasy fans. I fell in love with the first book and this one did not disappoint. Basically all I want to do is gush about how much I love this book, so I will, you have been warned.
I just LOVE Celaena. She is strong and fierce, and you see her fierceness come out in Crown Of Midnight.
Dorian really surprised me in this one. I did not expect his twist coming at all, but I LOVED it. And I almost regretted, at times, that Celaena broke up with him. Almost. I’m team Choal all the way and have been from the start.
Choal *sigh* he was amazing in this book, I can’t even. Team Choal will be so happy with this book 😉
I loved the friendship between Celaena and Nehemia and OMG who would have thought THAT was going to happen. Not me, that’s for sure.
I love the magic in it.
Oh – and that thing that is revealed about Celaena at the end, saw that coming a mile away, all the way back in book one.
But for all it’s awesomeness, there is this terrible thing that happens that totally shattered my heart.
Why, Sarah J. Mass, why?
This should be called “the book where I fill you with all the good feels and then rip out your heart and dance on it while laughing evilly.”
I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book, which luckily I have in my possession. I also need to get my hands on the novellas ASAP, because Sam. I’m crying just thinking about it.
Crown Of Midnight is a well written fantasy full of unexpected twists, magic, mystery, gorgeous boys, a fierce heroine and heart crushing romance. I highly recommend it.
