Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.
But her heart never wavers.

After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.

Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king's bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she's given a task that could jeopardize everything she's come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon -- forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice.

Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?

First Line: The shutters swinging in the storm winds were the only sign of her entry.

ReviewCrown of Midnight deserves more then five stars plain and simple. It starts off right where Throne of Glass left off, Celaena is now the Kings Assassin and is assigned to kill off the rebels that are trying to rise against him, of course if you read the first book you know Celaena has her own hidden agenda and does what she wants no matter the consequences. What we get in Crown of Midnight is more revelations, betrayals and more secrecy's wrapped up with matters of the heart which made up for one intense read.

I liked that we got to learn more about the world in which they lived in but the more we learned the more questions there are. Also not everything and everyone is as they seem, magic is still very much alive, hidden but alive. The biggest shocker was Celaena there is such a huge revelation about who and what she is that after I read it I had to calm myself down because of how fan girlish I became at that point. Needless to say you think there can't be any more surprises but Maas does what she does best and keeps throwing these insane twists and turns that makes it unbelievably hard to tear yourself away from Crown of Midnight.

As for the romance, I'm so glad there was no love triangle at least not from Celaena's end. She knows who she loves and wants just Chaol. Although a part of me is a little nervous because I heard that this series is going to have six books to it (which I'm totally jumping up and down with joy for because I can not get enough of these characters or the world that Maas has so magnificently created) and with how things ended who knows what will become of her and Chaol in the future books.

Overall Crown of Midnight is one of my favorite reads of the year and it's official Celaena is my number one favorite heroine as far as the Fantasy/Ya genre is concerned. Yep she's just that awesome. If you haven't started this series I highly recommend you get on it and for those of you who are following the series just know that this book was even more amazing then the last and you should pick it up as soon as you can get your hands on it.
