Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2)by Sarah J. Maas

Synopsis

“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.

Review

Crown Of Midnight is the second killer book in Sarah j Maas’s YA fantasy series- Throne Of Glass. 

Crown of midnight starts were Throne of Glass left of. At just 18 Celaena Sardothien has beaten the odds and is now the king’s champion. Though  she is far from loyal to the crown.

Celaena knew that being the king’s champion would be hard and would test her resolve . So  when the King commands her to perform a series of executions against those who he suspects are thought to be traitors to the crown, she finds herself  having to make a choice.

There are dark forces  gathering, and threatening all those she holds dear. She will have to face a much darker path .

Nehemia who was such a great support for Celaena in the first book, is still very presentin this. Though we learn more about her agenda. The princess is one of those selfless characters that would give everything up for the sake of her people and the ones she loves. She is what really sets everything in to motion in  this sequel. But in a  shocking way  that will leave you with stunned.

Another surprise is the amount of secrets thats everyone including Celaena.

There is so much I could tell you about this book, but I run the risk of giving to much away. So I will leave you with
There will be lies
There will be secret
There will be love
There will be betrayal
