"A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.
It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend."
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.
“I worry because I care. Gods help me, I know I shouldn’t, but I do. So I will always tell you to be careful, because I will always care what happens.”
The best lies were always mixed with truth.
It was like coming home or being born or suddenly finding an entire half of herself that had been missing.
Some things you hear with your ears. Others, you hear with your heart.
“I’d be the greatest fool in the world to let you go alone.”
Oh my Gods! I loved the first one (Throne of Glass) when I read at the beginning of this year. And I didn’t read Crown of Midnight until August/September because I had so many other books that needed to be read before. But why I didn’t just continue right then in January, I will never understand. Because Crown of Midnight was so much better! I didn’t know it could get any better than Throne of Glass. But it does!
There is not much for me to say about this book that hasn’t been said or without giving away spoilers for those of you who haven’t read it. So that is why this is going to be a mini review. Because I really cannot say anything without spoiling.
So, if you have not started this series, or if you have and haven’t continued on with Crown of Midnight. DO SO NOW! You will not regret it! I promise you!!
