'Crown of Midnight' by Sarah J. Maas: Mel's Quickie Review

Title: Crown of Midnight
Series: Throne of Glass #2
By: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: NA Fantasy

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.


Mel’s Quickie Review:

Crown of Midnight is the second book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. This book, unbelievably, is even better than the first one was. The tension is thicker, the danger even more tangible; no one and nothing is safe regardless of their title or position. From beginning to end, I was on the edge of my seat riding the waves of intensity. I laughed, I cried and gasped and was really embarrassed since I was listening to it at work.  I don’t do spoilers, as you all know, so I will just say this; I was heartbroken by the end but also intrigued. I HAD to start Heir of Fire immediately after. Again, I highly recommend this series and author.

My Rating:
(4.5 rounded up)

Sarah J. Maas is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series (Queen of Shadows, Book 4, will be out in September 2015), as well as the A Court of Thorns and Roses series (out 5/5/15).

Sarah lives in Bucks County, PA, and over the years, she has developed an unhealthy appreciation for Disney movies and bad pop music. She adores fairy tales and ballet, drinks too much tea, and watches an ungodly amount of TV. When she's not busy writing, she can be found exploring the historic and beautiful Pennsylvania countryside with her husband and canine companion.
