Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas
“The best lies were always mixed with truth.”
After fighting the other champions in the first book, Celeana has been made the King’s assassin, and has being doing his bidding for a couple of months now. When the King orders Celeana to assassinate a childhood friend of hers, Celeana discovers a rebel plot that could have dire consequences. Lots of plot twists and turns, rebel spies, evil royal politics, and a ton of action, this is a truly great fantasy novel for readers of all ages.
“Why are you crying?”
“Because,” she whispered, her voice shaking, “you remind me of what the world ought to be. What the world can be.”
After I finished Throne of Glass, I had no idea where this series would go. I was pleasantly surprised with the direction the author took with the plot and the character development.
Not a perfect 5 stars like the first book because I got a bit bored and skimmed a bit near the end. But this is shaping up to be an incredible series, and I look forward to the next 4 books. Too bad I have to wait for them.
