Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2)
by Sarah J. Maas
 Summary: "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.

Crown of Midnight was a spectacular sequel to Throne of Glass. It was even better than the first book as a lot of the mysteries of the world in the first book were unraveled. Celaena was no longer fighting for her place and her life, but balancing on a thin line trying to be the person she wanted to be while also doing the duties of the King’s Champion. Fortunately, she was the kind of person who could be brutal and terrifying when she needed to be.
Love, rebellion, duty, honor, magic, history, secrets, trust…. Celaena was in between two worlds and two missions: the king’s missions and those of Queen Elena. She attempted to figure out what Elena wanted her to do by questioning those she was sent to kill, speaking to a figure in the secret tunnels, visiting the library, and confiding in Princess Nehemia.
Crown of Midnight was amazing and it had me on a roller coaster of emotions. So much happened and the fate of just about every character is hanging in the balance. Many secrets were uncovered and many impossibilities are now possible. It’s hard to talk about how I feel without spoiling moments!
I highly recommend the series and I thought the sequel was even better than the first book, which is always a good sign. I’m going to wait to read Heir of Fire because the next book comes out in the fall, but it’s going to be hard to wait to read either of them. I am enjoying the series and it is one of those I wish I’d bought in hardcover because I’d love to see them on my shelf!
