“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.
And now my review on CoM, I was really bad at writing my review but I’m better now.
Celaena is now the King’s champion, his assassin and even if Chaol and Dorian didn’t like that, she kills people for the king. She has secrets, and she’s trying to find all the mysteries buried in the glass castle.
Celaena in CoM is more mature, she knows who her friends are and what she must do to protect them. I like all the little she’s doing who made her a more grown and responsible woman. She’s not selfish and it’s very important to her to save people. She’s wilder but she’s still sassy, arrogant and sarcastic, a girl I like. She’s a ruthless killer and when the people she loves are threatened, she’s unforgiving and she’s fighting for them.
Chaol is really good in this one and I love him even more now. He is a nice guy, he wants to protect the people he loves. He knows that he want a world with Dorian as a king and he knows the actual king is not a good man. Chaol is still loyal, funny and protective but he will have to make some choice for the future.
Dorian is a good friend to Celaena, he’s always her for her and I like their relationship. They are real and it’s great to see her with people who love her. Dorian is still the same young man, passionate and smart; he will be a great ruler. Nehemia is her best friends and I like the moment they passed together.
Nehemia is a great support for Celaena, she’s her best friend and even if she has her own agenda, she will help her. She’s not a selfish princess, she would give everything to save her people, and she’s ambitious and loyal.
Crown of Midnight is darker and you will need a handkerchief’s box. There is more magic in this book and you will learn more things about Celaena and where she’s come from. The intrigue settles down even more and the mystery around Celaena clears up. Chaol will have to question all in that he believes. His future is going to change radically.
Sarah J Maas has done a good job with this one because it’s very intense. The end is just awful for all the people in this world who love Chaol but in the end it’s for the best. This book is a real page-turner, and you will Celaena even more in this one. She’s more badass.
