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!!
Hello there! It has been over a year since I last wrote a book review, but I am happy to be back. Here is my review on Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.
This year (2016) has been crazy so far, so crazy that I started reading this book in April and only just finished it now… in September. I used to read at least one whole book every week last year, but I guess life takes over sometimes. Anyhow, Throne of Glass is the first novel in the legendary Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Published August 2nd, 2012, this beauty is complete with 404 pages.
A HEART OF ICE. A WILL OF STEEL. MEET THE ASSASSIN.
Celaena Sardothien is the world’s most feared assassin, until one day she got caught. Being forced to work as a slave in the salt mines of Endovier for a year did not make her lose her skills as a killer, which are put to test when the king organizes a competition that he would choose his very own assassin through. The one who is crowned as the King’s Champion is to work for the king for only an amount of time before being granted a clear name and freedom. Winning a competition over thieves and murderers is easy for Celaena until she discovers that there is a far greater darkness waiting to be unleashed.
This world Sarah J. Maas has built is incredibly flexible and unbelievably well made. I was not prepared for what this book held in store for me and every page was a mystery. The story is dangerously broad, but at the same time just wide enough for the series to go on and keep the reader’s attention and intrigue. As a YA lover I must admit that some stories are very predictable because of the key monuments that are needed to build up a novel, but this one held everything in it. Sarah J. Maas took those key monuments and twisted them into these wickedly surprising turns of events that a reader do not see coming.
