Celaena is back and better than ever after the events of Throne of Glass in which she eventually, after kicking some butt, became the Kings Champion. In this book we find out that this comes at a price and Celaena must now dispatch any enemies befalling the King at his request. But we know she's inherently good-natured, despite being crafty, so this isn't as easy as it seems.
Particularly when you might become distracted by a handsome prince or a romantic guard.
There are lots of back stories running throughout which all come together piece by piece. This made for a more interesting, detailed story as I tried to figure things out alongside Celaena. Compared to the first book this is a significant step up.
The character development is enormous compared to the previous book, which I felt showed each character kind of superficially. Of course I still liked the characters, but I didn't feel like I'd be too devastated if one of them took a tumble. Now I'm totally invested. The relationships, especially the way Maas shows friendships, are built within this second instalment and I much preferred that although there is romance, the friendships Celaena made were really well developed - I can't stand a story led by romance alone! Equally this made the secondary characters more important to flesh out the plot even more.
The plot was clever with lots of forks in the road. I thought I knew where this story was going, even on a romantic level, but actually Maas caught me off guard a few times which was refreshing. Usually it's obvious who the love interest will be, who will or won't die and so on. Maas actually takes chances and shows that certain events genuinely change matters for good instead everything being brushed under the carpet. Its rare for me to feel emotionally invested in the story and each character but towards the end of the book I was completely hooked. I love Chaol. I'm pathetic.
A really strong sequel - all the complaints I had from the first book were completely eliminated. I can't wait to see what happens next.
Crown of Midnight seems much more action packed, with some twists that I really wasn’t expecting. Characters are developed really well. I feel like I know the characters much better than I did in Throne of Glass. There is a good balance of romance and fantasy elements within this book for those that like to read a bit of both! I won’t speak too much about the romance element as I don’t want to ruin it…
I really like Celaena. She’s a kick-ass character, but she does have flaws. Sarah J Maas has developed a wonderful lead character, that I can imagine has aspects of her personality that a lot of readers can relate to. As for Sarah J.Maas, I’m so enthralled with her writing. I can just feel this series getting better and better. I’m excited to step into Heir of Fire later this month, so I’m all caught up!
My mouth is gaping open after that revelation at the end. Never! Haha, go Celaena!
This series is so good! You should so read it.
I'm happy about the Celaena and Chaol thing; think I've been rooting for it to happen since about half way through the first and it happened!! Woohoo! And then sort of fell apart a bit and then all good again.
Looking forward to the next one :D
