Crown of Midnight
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 ...more
Yeah Celæna is actually the Aelin person who's heir to Terrasen. Yes she's fae ~ Great -grandmother was Mab, an old Fae queenish-person, her aunt Maeve (Sister of Mab) is current Queen of Wendlyn.
There were hints through the Crown of Midnight about Aelin but only properly revealed at the end.
Hope this answer helps
Enjoy reading Heir of Fire!

Shit seriously just went down. Oh wow, where do I start with this sequel? I wasn't even sure I was going to read it when I recently finished Throne of Glass and found it entertaining but a poor excuse for fantasy. You want to know what Crown of Midnight felt like? It was like the author listened to every piece of criticism I could have thrown at the first book, listened to everything I loved and everything that irritated me... and then wrote a perfect kind of book. The kind I wanted the first on ...more
Full review on my Blog: The Dacian She-Wolf 🐺
Chaol Westfall, a well-trained, muscular grown-ass man, Captain of the Royal Guard: *gets all soft and smooshy in this book*
me: *needs to wrap him in a blanket, feed him some good hot Romanian rice pudding with lemon and sour cherry jam and protect him from the rest of the world because he is that precious*
- Actual plans that I really think about considering in a very serious way
After reading the first book of the series, Throne of Glass ...more
She is an assassin.
There's a difference. (Probably.)
He had no idea what sort of darkness lurked inside her, or what sort of monster she was willing to become in order to make things right.I honestly don't even know where to start with this one. It was so good and I'm just absolutely reeling from that ending. Because. Wow. Sarah J. Maas just delivered on this sequel.
"Enough! We have enough enemies as it is! There are worse th...more
Holy mother of all Gods! I'm starstruck. This is what I'd like to call a gorgeous sequel. Dare I say it, it might even top Throne of Glass!
Celaena Sardothien is doing her job as King's Champion, meaning she's killing people that stepped on the king's toes. And now she's got a new target: Archer Finn, former crush and friend from the time when she was within the Assassin’s Guild. Turns out, she's not killing her targets, but faking their deaths, so she's in a lot ...more

Don't get me started on the cover,because you all know how much I appreciate these beauties.This series has everything on it's perfection,starting from the covers to the story and the characters,and everyth...more
To say Sarah J. Maas stepped up her game in the second book of her “Throne of Glass Series” most certainly would be the understatement of the century. No, scratch that, it actually doesn’t even get close to the truth. XD
I swear in comparison to the first book this truly was an action packed and suspenseful read! =)
Alone the many awesome fight scenes and the countless revelations throughout the entire book were already enough ...more
Will I ever stop?
That’s a no.
The ending. The ending. The ending. And the buildup to that ending? Absolute game-changer.
My heart was beating! It brought me right back to the first time I read this series and felt my obsession with it and Sarah J Maas brewing! I latched on to it. And I have fallen in love alllll over again! 😍
There’s so much that I just felt!
Celaena’s character development in this, to her finally beginning to accept and deal with her past, to stop trying to ...more
everything else in my original review still applies.
firstly, wow! i think this might be better than the first book! and i actually really li ...more
Also, I appreciate the fact that this is not going to be a trilogy, we need more fantasy SERIES in the young adult genre.
And Chaol <3
Hear ye, hear ye all who seek adventure, ass-kicking and romance come forth! The second installment doth not disappoint! Our heroine is back as the King's Champion so expect action galore. Hear ye, hear ye . . .
Her lovely dresses and ornate clothes were gone, replaced with an unforgiving, close-cut black tunic and pants. Her hair pulled back in a long braid that fell into the folds of that dark cloak she was always wearing. She was a beautiful wrath …

Answer me something. How can this—
"She tipped her head back and gave the moon a wicked smile. She'd been called Adarlan's assassin for a reason. Dramatic entrances were practically her art form."
"Curled on the couch beside Chaol, Calaena took a sip of her tea and frowned. "Can't you hire a servant like Philippa, so we can have someone bring us treats?"
—possibly be the same person?
I teetered between liking and hating Calaena while reading. Mostly hating. I can handle th ...more
I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING, well actually some of it, like C heritage I saw coming.
BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO PEOPLE IN THIS BOOK WAS OMG
SERIOUSLY ITS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER.
THAT ENDING THOUGH
AND MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER DIED
CHAOL, CHOAL HOW EVER YOU SPELL IT. I am not sure i like him anymore!
(P.S. Fucking Chaol, man.)
Reading this with Kat Kennedy!
This is the book that made me hopeful about this series. I have to confess, even with the popular opinion being the series getting better with each book, I had my doubts. I couldn't imagine the author breaking away from her original portrayer of Celaena considerably. So, though she was more or less the same, it came as a pleasant surprise, to see she is now sharing the story with two other POVs. Though the Crown of Midnight was not a huge improvement, th ...more

Edit: I am bumping this up to a three because it is the best book in the series.
I don't think I've read a book that was so mystifyingly over-hyped since FIFTY SHADES OF GREY. Every time one of these books comes out, my feed is immediately saturated with them for weeks. I realize that in reading these books, I am contributing to the problem, but I never said I wasn't a hypocrite. (Actually I probably did, but then again, how very hypocrit ...more
I smiled. I laughed. I cried. I screamed. That's how good it was. That's how deeply it made me feel.
The first half of the book was slower and more lighthearted. The second half was more action paced and heartbreak. I preferred the second half, it was so hard to put down. The twists and turns were chef's kiss.
The characters are so so amazing. Chaol and Celaena made me feel everything. Also why the fade to black?! 😩😩😩
Dorian is a precious bean. I swear if something happens to him in the ...more
also why did she give chaol that good wap??? of all of the men in this damn book series...
Okay Sarah, you sly bitch*. This didn't completely s ...more
okay, so I actually don't hate Chaol??? Like before this reread I totally did, but now I don't. *shook*
out of curiosity, does anyone actually like him?
ahaha I do get the feeling that I'm going to remember why I hated him once I reread QoS but maybe I won't...? Until then.

Ten(ish) years ago, before the explosion of hair removal services, I used to go to this tiny South Korean lady who rented a space in a nearby salon. The moment she got me in her room, she'd keep up a constant stream of very bad English. The only thing she said that I could understand was, "Oh my GAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH." This was also her favorite thing to say, so I heard it a lot.
That's how I feel after finishing this book.
Oh my GAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH.

This book... this book is beautiful. The foreshadowing, the subtle hints at what's the come, the relationships between the characters. It's a delicate balance between dark and playful, bright and grey, lonely and vibrant.
Celaena is the King's Champion, but there is a darkness hidden in the castle that even she can't comprehend. She pretends to kill the King's enemies, but as she dives deeper into this mystery of where magic has gone and how she fits into all of this, she uncov ...more
