Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

CoMReview

My Thoughts:

*Because this is a second book there may be spoilers*

Sometimes with series they peak with the first novel; not with this series. It is hard to even put into words how much I enjoyed the second novel in the Throne of Glass series. It was the perfect combination of familiarity and newness that it dragged you even further into the world of Celaena Sardothien.

There is more kicking ass, character and world building, love, heartbreak, magic and just about everything you could hope in a second book. My heart and mind were literally pulled from one extreme to the next over and over.

I don’t want to give anything away, but it is safe to say that you grow to love the characters even more in this second book…and you may or may not (depending on which male you prefer in the series) be overcome with emotions with a certain pairing and their storyline.

If you are looking into reading this series I suggest you pick up the first book (Throne of Glass) immediately so you can get to Crown of Midnight and then Heir of Fire (review to come).

This series, the story, and its characters has won over my heart and has taken its place on my top book shelf of favourites. I NEED MORE NOW!

My Rating: 

5 out of 5 stars. I loved it and can’t recommend this series enough. If you want to read about a strong, complex, and just an all around great main female character this is the book for you. But even if that isn’t what you were looking for you should read it because I say so.

Favourite Quotes: 

“I worry because I care. Gods help me, I know I shouldn’t, but I do. So I will always tell you to be careful, because I will always care what happens.”

“The rest of the world quieted into nothing. In that moment, after ten long years, Celaena looked at Chaol and realised she was home.”

“The best lies were always mixed with truth.”

“Some things you hear with your ears. Others, you hear with your heart.”
