Synopsis (Goodreads)
Crowned by Evil.
Bound by Duty.
Divided by Love.

Celaena Sardothien, royal assassin, is the King of Adarlan’s deadliest weapon. She must win her freedom through his enemies’ blood – but she cannot bear to kill for the crown. And every death Celaena fakes, every lie she tells, put those she loves at risk.

Torn between her two protectors – a captain and a prince – and battling a dark force far greater than the king, Celaena must decide what she will fight for: her liberty, her heart or the fate of a kingdom…

Holy Mother of Terrasen! Crown of Midnight is as good as, if not better than Throne of Glass. Through this novel we follow Celaena Sardothien as she has to fight the King of Adarlan’s battles for him – by assassinating his enemies. In Crown of Midnight we can follow along as Celaena grows more and more into herself after the events from ToG.

To put it simply, I love Celaena as a lead female – She is such a badass character that you just cannot help to love her and hope that she succeeds. I am looking forward to finding out more about her past and about what happened while she was one of Arobynn’s assassins.

I cannot wait to see just what else Maas has to offer for this series and I know that I will buy her novels as soon as they are released, if I don’t pre-order them.
