By the end of the novel, our heroine is not running from her past anymore; the Captain of the Guard is ready to sacrifice himself and face his father; and the Crown Prince starts to stand up to the King no matter the consequences. Thank you for being my friend. For not being like the others. I'm not kidding when I'm saying that sooo much happened and some many plots started to unfold between my eyes.
Crown of Midnight was a page-turner through and through and there was never a dull moment. She had attacked the Captain of the Guard in front of his men. There were two revelations regarding her: I suspected the one revealed in the end, but the other one totally caught me unprepared. Both are jaw-dropping twists that will completely change the outcome of her adventures. We learn so much more about Erilea, Adarlan and the history of the country.
We delve deeper into the Fae magic. It's a top-notch high fantasy world, coupled with a darker atmosphere, mistery, magic and amazing characters. The result is a certain recipe for epicness, one that Sarah J. Mass gorgeously created with her mad writing skills. It's complex, emotional and completely captivating.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll swoon, you'll gasp in shock and you'll fall in love with the story. Crown of Midnight was an excellent follow-up that might not end in a claw-your-yes-out sort of cliffhanger, but it will make you crave the next installment like air. And man, what a ride that will be!
How can I wait another year?? View all 89 comments. The second installment doth not disappoint! Our heroine is back as the King's Champion so expect action galore. Hear ye, hear ye. Her lovely dresses and ornate clothes were gone, replaced with an unforgiving, close-cut black tunic and pants. Her hair pulled back in a long braid that fell into the folds of that dark cloak she was always wearing.
She was a beautiful wrath … This book turned up in my room 4. She was a beautiful wrath … This book turned up in my room dressed in dark robes, whispered the first few sentences like a secret incantation and before I could utter 'By the Wyrd' I was under its spell not saying that this book has magical powers, but this book has magical powers. It swept me down a path of ink and words, and every time I thought it had given me its all, 'surely it can't get better than this.
Then it took a boot to my love for female assassins and pushed hard and now I'm sitting at the bottom of a canyon singing to myself: O' she played it smart, she is of much greater fame, your body she will cart, this deadly daggered dame, your name you will never part, before she takes her aim. You're writing it love poetry? I've already made my adoration towards Celaena quite clear so I'd like to take a moment to appreciate our two leading men: Chaol , Chaol, wherefore art thou Chaol?
I am, as we speak, arranging to become a fictional character so I can stalk meet you. The Captain of the Guard is as strong and fierce as he was in ToG but in this installment we get to see more of his softer side. The beautiful friendship between Celaena and him takes front stage in CoM. Sarah really takes the opportunity to flesh out their relationship in all it's banter-teasing-tension glory.
There's talk of books sigh and late nights spent next to the fireplace. While Chaol's compassion and loyalty are beacons of light in the darkness of the Royal Court, the question is where exactly do his loyalties lie? With the Crown he has fought so hard to protect? Or with his friends who have made the glass castle a home for him? What the world can be. But again Sarah sucker punches stereotypes and leaves them panting for breath on the floor. Dorian isn't your garden variety indestructible, white horse riding, fierce, saves-the-day prince. Instead he can be fragile and confused and he is made all the more strong for it.
Shocking isn't it that boys can experience the same emotions as female heroines cough? Sarah doesn't kick him to the curb either. Rather another layer of mystery is added when strange things start happening to him. The most refreshing aspect of this trio's relationship is that Celaena is not turned into a Mary Sue mess in the face of these male "interests. I am not at all done with these characters and I'm ready for their next adventure. CoM had it all: The ending left me as hungry for more as when I started. This series is going to go wondrous places in the next instalment and I can barely wait.
No no no no no. Why are you so far away?! I need me some more Dorian and Chaol. Be strong my shipper heart. Dear lord wilt thou not grant patience to my poor shipper heart?! View all 21 comments. Others, you hear with your heart. XD I swear in comparison to the first book this truly was an action packed and suspenseful read!
Do I still have to say it?! No matter the cause, though, it — it still takes away a little piece of you each time. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the fighting scenes and the one with Baba Yellowlegs was definitely the best! I am a coward. And Chaol — the man she hated and loved so much that she could hardly think around him — just stood there, watching her go. I mean come on! You should be smarter than that!!! Chaol basically is the embodiment of the unthinking and unblinking soldier! Stupidly loyal to a fault!!! And that moment when he got kidnapped in his own domain? Are you kidding me!?
At the end I felt kind of sad for him though. I mean he finally realised that he was blind and probably made the biggest mistake of his life. Unfortunately by then it was already too late to change anything about his misguided actions and he ended up suffering like crazy. Once, he might have protested that his loyalty to the crown was his greatest asset. But that blind loyalty and obedience had started his descent. And it had destroyed everything. He barely made it into an empty broom closet before the sobs hit. More power than you realize. When the time comes, when it awakens, do not be afraid.
I love Dorian so damn much! I suffered with him throughout the entire book and I really hate the idea that Sarah might make him a second Lucien. I love the fact that he has raw magic in him and I see so much potential for the next few books! Still, his loneliness caused my heart to ache and I felt really sorry for him. Sarah, please have mercy on him!!! TeamDorian forever and for always!!!! Was what he really wanted to ask. Damn him for caring. The rarest, and deadliest, kind.
Sheer undiluted power, capable of being shaped into whatever form the wielder desired. And they do not sell themselves to the king to get what they, too, deserve. With each person you kill, I am finding fever and fewer excuses for remaining your friend. Why did you have to kill Nehemia? We found a dead Nehemia and Celaena never got a chance to fix things between them. Well, at least in my opinion.

They had it coming and they should have known better than to mess with Celaena. When the king invaded Eyllwe all those years ago, I knew that I would someday have to make choices that would haunt me. I cannot be in two places at once. That vibrant, fierce, loving soul; the princess who had been called the Light of Eyllwe; the woman who had been a beacon of hope — just like that, as if she were no more than a wisp of candlelight, she was gone.
Do not let that light go out. Not to marry Perrington, but for another purpose. They want to use me. I mean yeah he helped Dorian but maybe that was all show? Worse and worse, and full of all those flapping wings. So Dorian closed his eyes, and took another long breath. And when he opened his eyes, he let her go. I know they had troubles at the beginning but the friendship that formed between them is so perfect!!! I loved it when Dorian told Celaena that she will always have a place with him and that she could come to his dorms whenever she needed something.
A line stretched taut between them — a moment of trust, and a promise of answers from both of them. She kept her chin high, but her eyes were gleaming. I loved that they were so close and could talk about everything, but I guess now that Celaena got into their way things between them might never be the same again. I mean Chaol was always so damn loyal to the king and that actually makes it more than just hard to trust him.
Even though Chaol had never said it, Dorian knew the scars went deep. But I worry because I care. I actually CAN believe it! Still, I mean I never was the biggest fan of this ship everyone who read my review of ToG knows that but I at least would have wanted them to be happy for a while. And the way it happened!!

She wronged poor Chaol so much and even though he made bad decisions I still feel sorry for him. Faster, never faltering, never breaking her stare. The rest of the world quieted into nothing.

In that moment, after ten long years, Celaena looked at Chaol and realized she was home. Both inside her, and between them. XD I loved our discussions about the plot and characters and the fact Gem is such a hardcore Chaol fan only added fire to the fuel to the fun. View all 62 comments.

That ending had me gasping and squealing as if it was the first time I read it. My heart was beating! I couldn't help but inhale it! It brought me right back to the first time I read it and felt my obsession with this series and Sarah J Maas starting! I have fallen in love alllll over again and I'm on such a high right now! And it hit me again how much she actually has suffered, from the time she was 8 till now.
The people that she has lost, the sacrifices she has made to try and keep her soul intact and completely close herself off to the torture she experienced. It was so painful to read. Pure pain and excruciating growth resides in that book. View all 35 comments.

This is how you write a fantasy novel. Great characters, development, evolution and revelations. Magic used intelligently, and my personal favourite action.

I could not put the book down. I like the way that they characters have their responsibilities and jobs but that is not all that defines them. Celaena has no problem hacking up body parts but she is still a girl who loves to shop. I think even though she is an assassin she sees herself as more of an avenger. She will avenge her friends no ma This is how you write a fantasy novel.
She will avenge her friends no matter the cost. The story Celaena Sardothien won the right to become the King's Champion personal Assassin since then she has been charged with dispatching a number of his enemies. In many cases she brings back trophies in the form of severed heads, and family insignias rings still attached to the hands.
However having no love for the King she has been she has been helping his enemies get away and faking their deaths. The problem is she is too good at it and even her closest friends and biggest supporters believe she has completely turned over to the dark side. Then she is given a target who intersected with her former life in Assassins Keep Archer a courtesan prostitute. This simple assignment sends a ripple effect affecting Celaena and everyone she cares about.
They also fills in some history; there is a more detailed account of what Celaena did the day she "snapped" in Endovier. There are also hints that Celaena knows exactly who betrayed her. In the next book I am begging for a showdown with the King of Assassins, but so far Celaena has already made enough enemies to keep her busy for a good long time, which is great news for a long series. The only thing I did find annoying in this book is the right characters suddenly appearing exactly the right moment, but will all the fate and prophecies in the book, this could be easily explained.
I am a fan of Sarah's writing style having chapters of different length, and almost chunking the chapters so information is easy to take in and broken up for me. This might be a fairy tale setting but that is where the similarities stop, this is more the grim story tales type of book, with grizzly deaths, torcher, and harsh language even though the characters do not swear in print, they usually "unleash a string of curse". I love the Throne of Glass universe. There are references made to not only the first novel but the eBook prequels as well. This book is a lot more action packed to the first novel, there HUGE revelations about Celaena and Dorian, who have a Luke and Leia type relationship , as well as the forces that are using them.
Start it and you will not be able to put it down. You do not need to have read the previous stories to enjoy this one but they do help and after reading this one you will want to go back and read the others. Dec 10, Khurram I liked the first book, but Crown of midnight was where the series went to the next level for me. Dec 11, Alright, so I just wanted to add that while I won't discuss them here I did decide to scour a good bit of spoiler material for the following books.
I was getting nervous that I wouldn't be able to adjust at this turning into what seems to be a completely different series than it starts off as, and I'm glad I did. I'm starting to warm to Celaena a bit more and I'm willing to open my heart to other love interests. I'm still touting my Chaol support-haters gonna hate I'm determined to finish the Alright, so I just wanted to add that while I won't discuss them here I did decide to scour a good bit of spoiler material for the following books.
I'm still touting my Chaol support-haters gonna hate I'm determined to finish the series by the end of , so I'll be plugging these in where I can, but it seems these authors believe in exponential growth in the page count of each continuing book in a series.
SO much better than ToG! The only reason this wasn't a 5 star read for me was Celaena Sardothian. Name one thing that has been better in these past 2 books because of her? She's a butt-munching, immature turd dropper who literally does the stupidest thing possible in every situation. Yet somehow I was entirely absorbed in this book and enjoyed it thoroughly.

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2) by Sarah J. Maas
To view it, click here. That's how I feel after finishing this book. So, of course, after loving the first book so much, I was worried about book 2. How could it possibly live up to its predecessor? Celaena was more kick-ass. Chaol was more swoonworthy. The King was more vile. There was more action, more betrayal, more heartbreak--just more.
Celaena is now the King's Champion, having killed HA! But trained assassin or not, she of course has issues with her new job title. The King is responsible for the death of her entire COUNTRY not to mention her immediate family after all, so does she like being his personal, one-woman hit-squad?
Plot and scheme, that's what. But she's not the only one, and up until the half-way point, this ominous feeling kept building and building. And then the Bad Thing happened. Which caused the Even Worse Thing to happen. And then you start to cope. And just when you start to get your land-legs back, you get your mind friggin' blown.

Jul 17, Natalie Monroe rated it it was ok Shelves: How can this— "She tipped her head back and gave the moon a wicked smile. She'd been called Adarlan's assassin for a reason. Dramatic entrances were practically her art form. I teetered between liking and hating Calaena while reading. I can handle the sh 2.
I can handle the shoes and shopping because a girl has the right to look damn good while disemboweling enemies. Calaena finally acts like a real assassin in this installment But leaving her post to dance? I'm going to say it one more time to let it sink in. The world's greatest assassin left.
It's such a transparent attempt to squeeze in a moonlit waltz between Chaol and Calaena, I want to laugh. I'm Team Dorian, by the way. Just putting that out there. Chaol is an overprotective fucknuckle who can suck it. Calaena still does stupid crap, like exploring without backup or sufficient research. Her obsession with chocolate cake is goddamn annoying. It's too cutesy and feels like Maas's trying too hard. Each time it came up, I felt like paraphrasing Amy from Gone Girl: No one fucking likes chocolate cake that much.
Midway, as I was finally warming up to Calaena, she turns into an uber Mary Sue. It's not resolved in a chapter or two; it's an underlining theme that affects the latter half of the book. I especially like that view spoiler [Calaena doesn't forgive Chaol right away. Nehemia dying wasn't his fault, but her anger and distrust is justified. It's one of the few things in Crown of Midnight that made me sit up, and partially why I think he'd be good with Calaena: He's a way better love interest and friend. I don't care if it's planet-aligning true love, you don't sneak around with your best friend's ex-girlfriend.
It was a sweet, poignant moment. And put me firmly on his side, even though I'm destined to lose. A Court of Thorns and Roses is amazing and I will definitely check out anything else Maas writes, but this series is a disappointing mess. View all 56 comments.

Aug 12, April Aprilius Maximus rated it it was amazing Shelves: June Second read: August Third read: August Fourth read: This was a re-read on audio and I still love this book as much the first time around if not more.
She is killing people and bringing their heads to the king. Or is she really? We find out some secrets about Dorian and Celaena that I just loved. Chaol and Celaena have a little thing but when something bad happens i This was a re-read on audio and I still love this book as much the first time around if not more. Chaol and Celaena have a little thing but when something bad happens it turns Celaena around. I love Chaol but I don't see them as lovers. Yeah, it's fun for a bad to the bone woman to go and have all the men she wants like men do heh but reading it a second time and finding out some stuff about Celaena I'm even more glad of where the book has moved and the current love of my life -er- Celaena's.
Anyhoo, I loved when Celaena and Dorian were working together to fight off another freaking demon. They are both special in certain ways and can fight in certain ways. That was really mind blowing right? Lol Oh, and I loved the doorknocker, Mort. He was such a joy! We also find out some things about the king. Some things about people who killed someone we loved and the revenge was so sweet I love some sweet Revenge The ending was sad with Chaol but he will find his place later, later on.
The cliffhanger we find out about Celaena is amaze balls. It's the start of all the goodness and well, badness. Either way, still loving it! I can't wait to get to the next one and see what she is going to do. In this one, she goes about beheading, etc, people the King thinks are against him. She has to do these things per her contract. Celaena and Nehemia are still trying to figure out what all of the symbols mean. And of course, Nehemia is upset with Celeana going around killing people.
But they sort all of that out. There are so many surprises in this book! We find out someone has magic, which was supposed to have been destroyed by the King years ago. We find out the things about Celaena. We find out who she picks as her first lover: We get to mourn a death: And a few other tidbits along the way.
She still has her love for books and all things a little glamorous. There isn't really time for all of that in this book though with all of the chaos going on. She still has Fleetfoot, who I just love: I still can't believe the turn of events at the end of the book. Talk about a cliffhanger! I recommend this book to all that love bad to the bone women, evil Kings, handsome dudes and all kinds of monsters and what not! View all 17 comments. Feb 15, Maggie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Maas has done something, something with her writing that has now captured my heart and owns it. Her writing is phenomenal, and knowing how much improvement was actually made, I can already tell HoF and QoS will be phenomenal as well.
Crown of Midnight had its own improvements in everything - Celaena became more badass, more secrets were made and kept and also found, more violence and blood, more heartbreaks and more betrayals. Throne of Glass was a novel I quite enjoyed and actually liked, while many others did not find appealing or liked it in any way. But if someone wasn't so sure about ToG, well, CoM will definitely leave you wanting to read the rest of the series and see where Celaena's journey takes you. Maas definitely took this to another level.
Nothing was the same, everything changed. Everything that was not expected happened. I knew there would be character development, but I didn't expect this much! Celaena Sardothien is not the same Celaena we meet in Throne of Glass. In Throne of Glass she was known as an assassin that was pretty sarcastic and weak at many times, but in Crown of Midnight, she's still that sarcastic woman, but she's also an actual assassin now. She's aggressive, badass, and a vicious heroine that doesn't let her loved ones attackers stay alive without her questions being answered. I know this is off topic, but damn!
Celaena reminded me of this anime called Fairy Tail. It's basically a fantasy anime that deals with magic and guild and the main one is called Fairy Tail. They're a guild that fight and live for their comrades , for their friends , for their family. For some reason, I was reminded of that. Celaena's dark side is actually revealed to us and we see someone who is fighting for her friend, someone she thought she would never have.
She's fighting for her, to find answers, to look for them and answer her own questions with other's questions and answers. Celaena's character development was the one I've been waiting for! I haven't really read books with vicious heroines that deal with death and assassination and now reading about Celaena, my whole life has made a turn and she is my book soul mate. I was crying when she felt tears and just held them back. I was crying for the pain she felt. I was crying for the loss she lost. I was crying for what she had to do when she didn't want to.
I was crying for her. I never thought I would become a fan of Sarah J. Maas for some reason. I never wanted to pick this series up because of the negative reviews I read about the first one and because of the love-triangles. I just didn't care about it. And now look at where I am. Crying, trying to find the words to write an actual review and not just this pointless one. Here I am loving Sarah but hating her at the same time for leaving me with a shattered broken small heart. But hey, there's 2 other books for a reason right? Minus the 3rd one This being a fast-paced book, there is development in everything.
We are introduced to some new characters which I really don't focus on while writing reviews and we are met with the same ones, only secrets hiding in them as well. Let's see, where do I start. Oh my beloved handsome Prince Dorian Havilliard and my precious small yet big cinnamon roll, Chaol Westfall. I really don't know who has ruined my life more. They're best friends, they both have feelings for the same girl, and they both have their secrets to be told.
Dorian is still that handsome, intelligent and charming Prince that cares about Celaena and keeps a distance away from her. Chaol is still the Captain of the Guard not only for Dorian, but for Celaena as well, keeping no distance away from her and finally allowing himself into accepting that he loves the same woman his loyal friend does. He still cares about Dorian but because of his distance with Celaena and sharing a romance with her, their friendship kind of fades and it's not the same like it was in ToG.
In Throne of Glass, I was all about Dorian. I accepted him as my book boyfriend along with many other readers and I accepted his connection with Celaena while I did not accept her connection with Chaol. I did not hate Chaol, rather I was glad he was the guard that followed the commands of his King and friend, and didn't really care much about Celaena.
But in Crown of Midnight, everything changes. He starts caring for her and noticing he actually loves her in a way he never thought he would. Even though he knew it would affect his friendship with Dorian, he couldn't keep the far distance from Celaena and not allowing himself to touch her and kiss her. With the romance building up, Celaena and Dorian kept a small distance apart and she didn't care much about him when he truly still loved her and cared for her.
It made me so sad and all I really wanted was for Celaena and Dorian to be together. But now, now I don't even know what team I'm on. Team Chaolaena or Team Dorlaena but at the same time, I don't want any of them to be together simply because I prefer for Dorian and Chaol to be happy as friends and stay that way, not get mad at each other, fighting for the same girl. A guard and a loyal friend since they were young, oh please stay that way instead.
But then, Maas decides to make some plot twists and leave my world hanging because I didn't expected any of it until it actually happened. I was captivated by the challenges Celaena had to make, the secrets she had to keep, and the truths she had to find. Not having a clue how it would actually start before it started, how the twits would appear, and how the end would end , I was surprised by how much I actually loved this sequel and mark it as one of my favorites. Many things change, leaving me wanting to pick up the 3rd book to see how the past is left by everyone: When I say so much happened, I mean, a shit load happened!
The ending, everything really, just let my eyes with liquid, letting it roll down my cheeks and have emotional and mixed feelings everywhere. CoW was dark, bloody, violent and pretty brutal. Celaena wasn't afraid to kill for her loved ones, she wasn't afraid to keep following the King's orders to keep gaining her freedom. Nothing from her past was in her anymore as the novel ended. She grows to her darker side, oaths to keep one promise and only that one, knows who she is, and just wants to seek the revenge for what happened to her friend, her actual friend.
I'm looking forward to where Celaena decides to go, to see who she builds another connection with, to see who she comes upon with, to see the choices and other challenges she will have to make, to see where everything will take place and end.

This book totally knocked out all of my uncertainty, though; it was fast-paced, full of plot twists and turns that, while not entirely unpredictable, were endlessly fun to watch unravel. But death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years.
It felt like I was back with the assassin from the novellas, who was someone I could genuinely enjoy and appreciate as a character. I think Celaena deserves a lot more credit than she typically receives. Maas reader would expect it to be. I almost knocked a star off just for this one thing. Feel free to hit me up for private rants. I have a lot of feelings.
To escape death, she'd become death. Overall, though, Crown of Midnight was a huge success for me. View all 15 comments. Apr 07, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies rated it really liked it Shelves:
