Summary: An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.
But her heart never wavers.


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?


My Thoughts: I loved Throne of Glass when I read it last year so I was very excited for Crown Of Midnight! And it didn’t disappoint one little bit.


We are back with Celaena and she is now Assassin to the King. She does his odd jobs and handles his disputes basically. He sends her out to kill people and she attempts to finish each job.


The King gives her a new job where she has to figure out who is a trader. He tells her he will give her name after name until they find the person responsible. First, it starts with her old friend Archer.


Celaena sure does get herself tangled up in some webs. She has so much in front of her that she has to handle.


And Celaena has some hard decisions to make regarding Dorian and Chaol. I still like them both so much. Each one is so different and it makes me fall for them both. I want her to be with both guys. That is the problem with boys in books. Sometimes, you just like them both and its so hard to decide!!!


I can’t believe what happened and who died. I wanted to cry so hard. It was devastating and heartbreaking. And, then once we find out the true history of Celaena’s life. I didn’t see it coming and I was so surprised I wanted to throw the book across the room. It makes so much sense though. And, it was so crazy that I wanted to laugh and laugh.


Once again, I just love this story. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. They are must reads for me and favorites. I just love the characters, I love how badass she is and I love both love interests. I also love the plots of these. They are just “magical.” I feel like I’m engulfed in this other world where I am right there with her experiencing everything she feels.


Overall: Love Love Love! I will keep recommending this series to my friends. Another one of my favorites of the year.  Love the characters, love the plot, such an amazing story.


Cover: Like it!  It totally fits since she is awesome and tough.


What I’d Give It:

I loved this one too! The death didn't bother me actually. I wasn't sure if I liked Dorian or Chaol more going into this, but I've decided on Chaol after finishing the story.

I think Dorian and the dead person would have made a cute couple though.
