Book Review: Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) - Sarah J. Maas

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) - Sarah J. Maas

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) - Sarah J. Maas

"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.
You should read first:

  1. Throne of Glass

Wow, what an incredible sequel! Throne of Glass, the first book of the series, wasn't what I expected, but the story was interesting and I decided to keep reading: best decision ever!

Crown of Midnight is when Celaena finally shows us her abilities as an assasin, and that's what I wanted to read. She's amazing! She never misses, she's the best. Also, I feel like there were many unexplained things from book one that in this book start to have meaning, like if the first book was a prequel instead of the start of this story.

I liked more the romance in this book too. It's not a love triangle anymore, but a couple with strong personalities and many barriers. We will see what happens in the next books with them....

There were many twists in the plot that surprised me, specially around Prince Dorian and Princess Nehemia. I liked that, I never knew what to expect and it was fun to be surprised. It's a story full of fantastic creatures, magic, prohibited worlds and conspirations against the cruel King.

Honestly, I loved Crown of Midnight. It's so much better than the first book of this series, and I really can't wait to read the third: Heir of Fire.


  1. I had ahem, issues with this series, but still it was fun to read :)

    1. hahaha I know! I read your reviews at goodreads, and you are right specially with the first book. But I am really enjoying it, currently reading book 5.

  2. I absolutely love this series Gaby and always excited to see someone discovering it for the first time. I loved this one too, it begins to ease you into all the fantasy elements which is appreciated for a non fantasy reader like myself. Book three is going to blow you away, I'm so excited for your review! <3

    1. Ohhh I'm currently reading book 5. Book 3 was incredible!!!!
