Book Review- Crown of Midnight

I just finished reading Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas.

From Goodreads:

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?

Lots and lots of action in this book.  Even more of a love triangle than in the last book.  And some twists and turns.

I still liked Calaena for the most part.  There were some times when she was violent that turned me off her, but I think it was supposed to be like that.  But she still had a good heart.  As for the boys, I think I like Dorian more, by just a little bit. 

Something big is revealed at the end.  I didn't see it coming at all.  It was a good twist and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the series!

I gave this book a rating of 4/5.

Crown of Midnight will be released on August 27, 2013.
