“A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.
It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend.”
From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.
Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.
Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena’s world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie… and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.
As Melissa wrote in her Throne of Glass review Sarah J. Maas is the Queen and we literally talk about this all the time. How could we have lived in a world where we have not picked up a Sarah J. Maas book. I don’t exactly remember how we found out about the ACOTAR Series (Melissa probably told me about it, but whenever she tells me about books I should read I kinda forget that she told me about them and then she gets mad at me but whateves), but I’m extremely happy that I have read A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury because those books were absolutely incredible and I can’t wait for A Court of Wings and Ruin!!!
After finishing Throne of Glass I immediately began Crown of Midnight, well when I woke up the next day, but anyways when I started reading CoM I wasn’t sure what to expect after Celaena had been appointed as the King’s Champion. I knew that the King would obviously sent her out on missions but I was completely surprised by what Celaena had actually been doing every time she went out to do the King’s bidding. I noticed her change in personality/attitude in the first book, but I did not think that she had changed that much from the person she use to be. Don’t get me wrong I’m glad that she did, but it took me by surprise. What also took me by surprise was how quickly she was to attack the love of her life. I kept trying to piece together all of the evidence she had found, to try to figure out how Celaena was going to destroy the evil that lurks in the castle, but I could never piece everything together because things were constantly changing, secrets kept being revealed.
After reading the first book I got suspicious about a couple of things mentioned about some of the characters history and lineage. This book definitely answered them and confirmed some of my suspicions. While reading I noticed some clues that help me piece together some speculations and the ending of this book was literally everything. I just want to keep reading the series and I don’t want it to ever stop. I want Sarah to write about the Fae like Cassandra Clare writes about Shadowhunters, I want more series that allow me to dive right back into the Fae world. I know Sarah is already booked for many years and I can’t wait because I love everything Sarah writes.
Have an ALMIGHTY Day!
