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
I just.... wow.
The only reason this isn't rated higher is because the first half was quite slow in pace and I wasn't as invested, but the second half SURE DID REMEDY THAT. Help me?
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 of dan ...more
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 …

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
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

8/17/15: Was supposed to read two weeks ago with Buddies Books and Baubles but this book hurrrrrts. So I decided to put it off until the weekend before we started HoF . . . as in this past weekend. But couldn't do it b/c MISTBORN. I would've killed myself or something.
Now I'm ready.

Celaena is keeping up her end of the bargain to the horrible king. She is killing people and bringing their heads to the king. Or is she really?

Crown of Midnight was the book that shattered my heart into pieces and made me cry many times when I least expected it. Sarah J. Maas has done something, something with her writing that has now captured my heart and owns it. Her writing is phenomenal, and knowing how much improvement was actually made, I can already tell HoF and QoS will be phenomenal as well. Crown of Midnight had its own improvements in everything - Celaena became more badass, mor ...more
Chaol improves & shit, but... no. Dorian. Love. Celaena. Eternally~
& this has title & blurb! Best way to start the year! Which BTW tells me that Celaena shall love Dorian. The heart is never easy, okay? That's why she has me, to show her the way.
Oh, & other thing this book will need: A dead king(!).

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 the sh ...more

But but but before I continue.. its OK. I can see the bigger picture now... sooooo I'm ok. Actually you know what? She's bloody brilliant.

I'm ready for my reread of books 3 and 4 though! My favorites!
Reread August 2015**
Feb 2014 - I thought that I loved the first book, but this book shined even brighter than the first! I realize now that the first book's events just had to happen so that we could set up this world and this series. I've been reading the author's blog quite a bit, and I'm thrilled that she plans to write at l ...more
Initially, I was letting this review fester in my head so that I could gather all my thoughts and theories and fangirl shrieks before I put them on paper but I think that was a terrible idea since im beginning to forget everything I wanted to mention.
Yikes. But I’m gonna try my best anyways.

Okay, I don't even know where to start with this. After reading Throne of Glass the first time, I didn't pick this up and wasn't in a hurry to read it. Thankfully, some lovely friends of mine told me I HAD to read the sequels... In my experience, the second book in a series is almost always worse than the first so I didn't have high hopes for this installment at all, but thankfully the author proved me wrong!
HOLY SHIT GUYS.

HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?!
You win. All of you. You were right. This series is everything.
I read Throne of Glass last year and was pretty unimpressed. I shoved the series in a corner of my bookshelf and tried to ignore the massive hype around these books in the book community. I don't even know how I ended up giving this series another shot, but pretty sure I'm chalking that up to one of the best life choices ...more
I am so wrapped up in this story and this series is now one of my absolute favorites! I love how the love triangle is different from many of the others that I have read and isn't even really a love triangle. Celaena is one of the best female protagonists that I have ever read and doesn't take anything from anyone. SO KICK BUTT. So I'm going to go read The Assassin's Blade before Heir of Fire arrives!
