Proto se snaží odhalit jeho tajemství, ale přitom mu nezavdat příčinu, aby ji podezíral. Rozehrává tak smrtelně nebezpečnou hru, v níž jde nejen o její život, ale i o život všech jejích přátel.

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

Wow! This was an exceptional sequel. I loved it so much! I feel like the series has more of a direction, which is exciting. I'm still processing everything that happened in this book, because SO MUCH HAPPENS. I'll be doing a full review/discussion soooooon.

I'm not sure what to do right now.

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

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.

Alright, so I just wanted to add that (while I won't discuss them here) I did decide to scour a good bit of spoiler material for the following books. I was getting nervous that I wouldn't be able to adjust at this turning into what seems to be a completely different series than it starts off as, and I'm glad I did. I'm starting to warm to Celaena a bit more and I'm willing to open my heart to other love interests. I'm still touting my Chaol support-haters gonna hate I'm determined to finish the ...more

This was a re-read on audio and I still love this book as much the first time around if not more. Yes, more. I forgot this was the book with a death that broke my heart =( **Some Mild Spoilers**

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?

We find out some secrets about Dorian and Celaena that I just loved. I loved it! Loved it!

❝The best lies were always mixed with truth.❞

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

This book was just pure fun and excitement; it is not without a lot of flaws, but overall, my enjoyment of the plot propelled it into a highly satisfying read. I have to swallow my words when it comes to this series; I did bash on the first book in this series a lot because it was so similar to one of my favorite books. Due to my prejudice, I did not much like the first book in this series. It was an enjoyable read, but the characters were too lacking in depth for me, and the entire book just la ...more

Nooooo, Dorian. *Hugs him till Celaena loves him* I want to prove a point. DORIAN is the chosen one.

Chaol improves & shit, but... no. Dorian. Love. Celaena. Eternally~

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."

—and this—

"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

Last year, I gave Throne of Glass one star. I irrevocably loathed Celaena, and I vowed to never continue the series. However, as my anger gradually faded and peer pressure started to kick in, I decided to make a bookish compromise by listening to a free Audible version of Crown of Midnight. And lo and behold, I found myself enjoying it!

In contrast to its predecessor, Crown of Midnight had a plot that kept me on my toes and outstanding character arcs. In this novel, Celaena finally proved her wor

Ook ok finally figuring out words for this book… NBD its only been a year since I’ve read them.. and the reread has certainly helped.

It left me with so many feelings that I'm still picking through.

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. This entire story was planned to be this way from the get go. She's building towards something much bigger in this series as a whole. So for those of you who are t
This series is a non-living, non-breathing proof that it is all about a good story. That regardless of the genre you will enjoy it. It has something in it that pushes those biases and doubts aside and let me enjoy the book for what it is. I always voice out my minuscule interest towards the genre. But lo and behold Ms. Maas proved to me that I shouldn’t be saying those words with finality—because she made me loved her story, her characters, that I don’t care that it is from the elusive high fant ...more

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!

Original review:

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

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!
