Crown Of Midnight-A Book Review||❤

Crown Of Midnight
By Sarah J. Maas
Publication Date: August 27th 2013
Rating: 5 stars
"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.

 My Thoughts
This book met every single expectation I had listed in my mind!! It was as feisty, magical and phenomenal as the other book. This literally blew my mind and I just can't even contain my love for this series of books. Celaena has already been crowned the kings champion and is stuck doing her dirty work. The king fears that societies are being made against him and his court. The death camps are filling up and he is willing to defeat any potential enemy. All of her friends are disgusted by all the murders she has committed on behalf of the king but she has a little secret which you can find out when you read the book. (I was just about to give away a spoiler!)

Only a tiny part of the book bugged me. WHY CELAENA DID YOU PICK CHAOL HE IS BORING!! I'm a hardcore Caelorian shipper and I will sink with it. This isn't actually a massive issue but come on, Dorian is way more attractive and funny whereas Chaol barely smiles and he is just a stares. Also why does Celaena have to do the frickle frackle with Chalk, Dorian is just better!! But I do have to say he freedom me for like 4 chapters and then he annoyed me and fir once I had hope that Celaena would realise that Dorian is the one. Alright, I think I am getting a bit too carried away here.

Magic. Magic. Magic, madness, heaven, sin. (Taylor Swift Jam) I didn't expect much from it but boy it hit me with a brick. I love how it was uncontrollable and if anyone found out it would be punishable by death. It brought a sense of sneakiness and had me at the edge of my seat every single time I flipped a page. One part when a character, naming no names, says "Let go, Let.." and everything flew around around his I was literally like 'Elsa? Is that you?' because you know Let It Go and she can you know to stuff. Back to the subject! I also loved how delusi-nal they were and how they thought everything was a dream but it was actually true.

Overall, I really did enjoy this book and this series has definitely climbed into my favourites.
This is how you write a fantastic book, it is filled with everything you could imagine of and I promise you willing be spell-bound.

Keep Reading,


  1. I'm so glad you liked it! I haven't really decided which team I'm on yet for this series... I kept switching between Dorian and Chaol and then I thought neither of them deserved her and then came Heir of Fire which definitely threw me through a loop. It was really good though and I hope you enjoy HoF as much as CoM! Awesome review!
