Celaena Sardothien is the king’s Champion—yet she is far from loyal to the crown, for the man she serves is bent on evil. But working against her master in secret is no easy task. As Celaena tries to untangle the mysteries buried within the glass castle, she can trust no one, not even her supposed allies Crown Prince Dorian, Captain of the Guard Chaol, and foreign princess Nehemia.
Then, an unspeakable tragedy shatters Celaena’s world. She must decide once and for all where her loyalties lie . . . and whom she will fight for.
Crown of Midnight is SO MUCH better than Throne of Glass.
If you don’t know Throne of Glass, here would be a better place to start. I LOVE both books and I highly recommend reading them if you’re still sitting on that metaphorical fence. Come on, I cried reading this. I get very emotional when reading, but it was never like this. I imagined a kickass action packed Crown of Midnight (which is true), but I was not prepared for THE TEARS.
I need to quote Haymitch here– “Last year was child’s play. This year, you’re dealing with all experienced killers.”
ToG gave us bits and pieces of information which got clearer in CoM, and when things finally fit into the big picture, HOLY SHIT. If Throne of Glass was kind of an iffy spark for you, here is a wicked, burning, hungry WILDFIRE. Celeana’s like a huge ball of rage ready to rampage everything between her and the people whom she must protect.
I know I said I was Team Chaol on my ToG review. Well.
STOP BLOWING HOLES IN MY SHIP!!!!
Have you read this? Did you like it? Planning to read it? I am crazy excited for Heir of Fire!! I have so many questions after that ending?! I’d love to hear what you think!
