Having won the title of King’s Champion, Celaena must do the King’s bidding or risk the lives of her friends. Despite having trained at the Assassin’s Keep and being called Adarlaine’s Assassin, Celaena is reluctant to kill the King’s enemies and instead comes up with a plan. She spends the majority of the book embroiled in a plot to end the King’s rule, as she tries to obtain information that she can give to the King with the hopes of shortening her contract as his Champion.
This book takes you on a much more emotional journey with romance, betrayal, an unexpected (and brutal) character death, and a big reveal in its final pages. The characters are developed more in this novel and we also learn more about their histories. It was nice to see the development so that the characters felt more like real people with unique events that shaped them as people.
While there is continued mention of places other than Adarlaine, the story does not journey beyond the capital and continue to world-build, yet. The author mainly focuses on weaving in plot points that will later be incredibly important to the story.
Overall, the writing feels a little more mature than her previous book which at times came across as juvenile. The story ends in such a way that you immediately need to read the next book in the series. I would definitely recommend this series to young adult/teen readers who enjoy fantasy books.
I thought the first book was good and that the rest of the story was already unfolding. But after reading this book, I've learned that the surface had barely been scratched and there is so much more to come. Fantastic series!!!
Celaena is even more kick-a** in this book than the last (Throne of Glass). The mysteries about her past is opened up more and while reading until the end you will discover this. I am seriously sad I have to wait a whole year to read the next one!! My mind is still mind blown after reading this and utterly speechless. I fell so hard for both Chaol and Dorian that I am still torn at who is is going to pick! So it good that Celaena picks the one I wanted her with, so there wasn't a love triangle. Both male leads are such well developed characters that their story is very important to the development of Celaena's which Sarah J. Maas knows how to do!
This is one series everyone needs to read! Epic fantasy that has a Game of Thrones feeling! It has other great elements like fae, witches, demons, and mystery! Sarah J. Maas is an author to look out for because her stories are addicting and beautifully creative! I am looking forward to see what the other books in the series hold because I have a feeling they are going to be just as good!
The biggest reveal ever.
I will never stop subconsciously fangirling about this book and this series until my last breath. Crown of Midnight is the action-packed second installment of the Throne of Glass series and one of my most favorite. Why? Well, maybe you should read it and see for yourself. (HINT: The ending will leave you all like whhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?)
Ms. Maas has once again blown me away with her writing and her stories. If I seriously had to choose my favorite of the series (so far through my re-read), it would be this one. I'm not saying Throne of Glass was bad because, hell, look at my 5-gear review on it. There's just something about... (more via website)
This book has a little bit of everything: romance, mystery, action, heartbreak - oh the heart through the stomach to the floor heartbreak - and an incredibly big reveal about our heroine.
Maas draws you in and doesn't let go. Her characters are flawed, but you love them anyway. Reading this was a race to the end and then... I one-clicked the next one as soon as I could.
Celaena is such a realistic Heroine that most could relate to. She is strong and powerful, yet on the inside she is very vulnerable. She feels very strongly about those whom she loves and would do anything to protect them.
This is becoming a favorite series so far, and I can't wait to read the next book.
