Crown of Midnight is the second book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Published August 27th, 2013, this work of art is complete with 418 pages. I started reading this one on the same day I finished Throne of Glass even though it wrapped up nicely I needed to continue the journey, because I have heard from several booktubers that the series gets better with every book.
BEFORE SHE WAS DEADLY. NOW SHE IS UNSTOPPABLE.
As far as all fandoms are concerned spoilers are hated by most and as a reader and also a movie and tv series lover I must admit I hate them myself. Therefore I will not mention anything specific that happens in the book and only speak of what my thoughts are after finishing it.
Throne of Glass was full of momentums unexpected by many readers which is a big reason for it to have made such a blast in the YA community. Crown of Midnight has just as many surprises, but it also has a faster pace I felt. The only thing I had expected from this series was for it to have a heartless badass assassin as a main character, which lacked a little in the first novel. But WOW, Celaena came in and destroyed all the grasps I had gotten on her personality in this sequel. Celaena as a character became much more layered and complicated in a good way. There were definitely some happenings you never see coming and also one or two that you slowly had started suspecting.
Over all I agree with the booktubers on the statement of the series getting better with each book. Crown of Midnight have impressed me to 100% and I gave it 5 out of 5 big fat stars!!
Until next post, have an epic adventure!!
