Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas


After waiting impatiently for this book to come in from the library, I devoured it in between work and studying for my online class. By the time I finished it, it was 3am and I was lying in bed whispering “what the fuck” to myself repeatedly while my husband was very kindly waiting up for me.

Rating: [5/5]

Summary from Goodreads:

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.

Likes: The characters and their relationships are by far my favorite part of this series. All of them are just so good and they all have such great chemistry. And the twists! This book had so many plot twists and massive character reveals. I literally could not out it down.

Dislikes: None, nothing, nada, zip, zilch, zero.

      • I made the decision to actually try to finish my own reading challenge. I am five books behind and it ends in about a month haha. But I am looking forward to read Heir of Fire and possibly being able to jump right into Queen of Shadows. 🙂 I will check the review when you post it.
