Review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas sees Caelena Sardothien working for the evil King as his assassin.

This sequel fixes all the flaws of the first. It was everything I wanted in a book – adventure, mystery, romance, action – rolled up in a thoroughly enjoyable story I didn’t want to stop reading. Caelena went on assassin missions and showed herself to be a rather dark character. Dorian had his own story (though I still found whenever it was one of the guys’ perspectives they often thought solely of Caelena) and the castle held even more mysteries.

The ending felt almost a little unoriginal (and I had an inkling it might happen while reading) but things are being set up for more exploration in the world which I’d love to see, and a very big over-arching story.

This is the best book I’ve read this year! It was so well written, delving into their characters and creating a vivid world. I’m definitely looking forward to the sequel out next year.
