From Booklist

Now that Celaena Sardothian is safely ensconced as the king’s assassin, after Throne of Glass (2012), she’s begun to consider the true price of her freedom. Tasked with killing her tyrant king’s enemies, Celaena has a tricky balance to strike: proving her loyalty and preserving her life, and trusting the growing voices decrying the king’s power-hungry schemes. But that balance crumbles with an unexpected death and a frenzied search for both the killer and the secrets that murder was meant to hide. Meanwhile, Celaena finds herself in the midst of a steamy love triangle, with jealous glares flying almost as fast as her own daggers. There’s a lot to like in Maas’ latest—magic, witches, betrayal, love, page-flipping action—and it’s balanced by an equally tantalizing secret: Who is Celaena, and what is she hiding? It’s probably best to start at the beginning of the series, and fans will be satisfied not only by the intricate plot, dishy romance, and rich world building but they will be thrilled by the prospect of deepening adventures in the next volume. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Author tours, conference appearances, social-media campaigns, global marketing: this up-and-coming author will be making the rounds. Expect her large online fan base to follow. Grades 7-12. --Sarah Hunter

I don't even know where to begin when trying to review this book. I am still trying to grasp everything that went on throughout it. I became so depressed at one point that I had to put the book down and walk away before the book went flying across the room.

I am in love with Chaol; everyone needs to know this. After finishing Crown of Midnight he has moved up to probably my third favorite fictional character of all time. He's just so . . . perfect. He's strong, intelligent, loving, caring, passionate, loyal . . . I mean, I could keep going on but I don't want to bore you. He is everything you could ever want in a person, whether it'd be a lover, friend or someone who works for you. He is what we all want in our lives. Not to mention that I believe is the perfect fit for Celaena. I'm not being biased here, I swear but he brings out the best in her and when there are scenes of them together, it's just right. Dorian is good looking, charming and the Crown Prince but so what? He's a great guy but he has never had Celaena look at him the way she looks at Captain Westfall.

Now that I got my obsession with Chaol out of the way (for now), let's move on to the rest of the characters and stories. I have a major girl crush on Celaena and I have since the first book but wow, she is fierce. I'm totally crushing on her. She is definitely one of my favorite fictional female characters; ever. She is thrown in the middle of this whole Dorian and Chaol love triangle (though it's pretty clear where her feelings stand) and she cares for both of these guys, whole heartedly but in different ways. She wants to do nothing more than protect them but sometimes it's impossible.

Wow. What a ride. I finished Crown of Midnight last night, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. I went to sleep thinking about what may be ahead for these characters, and I woke up thinking about the exact same thing. When I read Throne of Glass in 2012, I was blown away by it. I had not read a lot of books in the fantasy genre and did not know what to expect. Like I said, I was blown away. Then I realized that the sequel, Crown of Midnight, would be published a year later... *sigh* But, here we are. It is out and let me tell you, it has not disappointed. The wait was most definitely worth it.

"Who knows what games these people play, and what ends they have in mind?"

If you read Throne of Glass, and thought that it was full of suspense, action and romance... you have no idea about those things until you have read this. I was captivated from the first word to the very last, and when it was over I found myself just sat there staring at my Kindle. The ending is mind blowing. I kid you not. I was an emotional wreck.

There are so many revelations that are made. Some bad, some good and some completely awesome. As each shocking twist and turn comes at you, all you can do is hold on for the ride and enjoy every single minute of it. I can't even begin to understand how this world and story are simply swimming around in Sarah J. Maas' head. In my opinion the writing is flawless. It can get confusing with fantasy novels, as there tend to be an abundance of characters, locations and words that you may not be pronouncing correctly. But I never feel that when reading this series. Everything is thought out, and presented perfectly.

This is one of those books that makes it nearly impossible to write a review because you adored it so much. I loved this more than book one, which is saying something. I know that book one got mixed reviews upon its release because it is such a polarizing story, but those who continue on with this series will be nothing short of utterly blown away by this sequel.

Before I begin, I want to throw out the fact that reading the novellas really enhances your experience when reading book two. Several aspects of Celaena's past are mentioned in this book and their overall stories are told in the novella. It gives you more back story to the summarized endings that are mentioned throughout this book. It also gives you a ton of back story as to why Celaena is the way she is, especially in regards to her love life.

If you ask me, the driving force of this magnificent series is the characters. I care about them in ways I never thought I would. I mean, our main character is a freaking assassin and I love her to death! I identify with some of her emotions! An assassin is supposed to be possibly the most despised and unlikable character out there, yet Maas made me so easily adore one. As King's Champion she is already being sent on assignments and being forced to bring back severed heads as proof of her mark's death. But it's really amazing to watch Celaena figure out what is right and wrong and find ways around the wrong to make them right. For an assassin she has a very healthy and respectable conscience, and while part of me was sitting there with bloodlust for her assassin abilities, she brought them out several times only when necessary.
