“She is the greatest assassin her world has ever known.
But where will her conscience, and her heart, lead her?
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 willing to fight for?”
What I say in this review, will not do this book justice. It was amazing! My favorite book of this year! My favorite book of all time! It was a whirlwind of emotions and the ending was absolutely shocking yet great. The action, romance and magic is even better than the first book but seriously if you thought Throne of Glass was exceptional, then Crown of Midnight will blow you away.
Once again this book was amazing, I actually cried in the ending, it was so powerful and unexpected. Packed with plot twists and extremely fast-paced, this book exceeded all my expectations. The Romance was again carefully woven into the story without foreshadowing the main plot but with a new love interest. It was just beautiful and I loved how it focused on Celaena’s job as the King’s Champion, while creating this exciting atmosphere. Like I said I have not done this book justice.
If you have read Throne of Glass, and have yet to pick up Crown of Midnight, pick it up right now! You won’t regret it at all. Rating: Way, way, way beyond 5/5 Stars. Thank you for reading. Like, Comment and Follow me, if you like.
