After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.
Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king's bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she's given a task that could jeopardize everything she's come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon -- forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice.
Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?
Crown of Midnight begins a couple of months after the first book ends. Celaena is the King's Champion, which basically means personal assassin, and she's being sent out to do the King's dirty work. But Celaena is having a hard time with things, especially when everyone seems to be hiding secrets, and hers might be the biggest of them all.
Not only is she having to worry about the danger she's in, but she also has to worry about everyone she's come to care about, including someone who might mean more to her than anyone else...
This book was spectacular! I loved it. It had me hooked from the start, and I had to finish it quickly. Now I can't wait to get my hands on the next book.
There were so many great things in this book! One of them was Celaena and her love interest. I won't name names, but I was so glad who she actually got with. But then I was so mad about what happened, and kind of frustrated with Celanea and her love interest for both being stupid and making mistakes!
Other than that though it felt nice to learn so many things about Celanea that I never would have guessed! And the end is a serious shocking discovery that leaves you wondering what the heck is going to happen next. This book was awesome. It had a dash of romance, lots of action, and tons and tons of questions that needed answers. I won't say more because you just have to read it to understand, and I don't want to give anything away! But this is a great addition to this awesome series.
