Eighteen-year-old Celeana Sardothien is bold, daring and beautiful – the perfect seductress and the greatest assassin her world has ever known. But though she won the King’s contest and became his champion, Celeana has been granted neither her liberty nor the freedom to follow her heart.

The slavery of the suffocating salt mines of Endovier that scarred her past is nothing compared to a life bound to her darkest enemy, a king whose rule is so dark and evil it is near impossible to defy. Celeana faces a choice that is tearing her heart to pieces: kill in cold blood for a man she hates, or risk sentencing those she loves to death.

Celeana must decide what she will fight for: survival, love or the future of a kingdom. Because an assassin cannot have it all... And trying to may just destroy her.

Love or loathe Celeana, she will slice open your heart with her dagger and leave you bleeding long after the last page of the highly anticipated sequel in what is undeniably THE hottest new fantasy series.

Crown of Midnight is a fierce follow up to Throne of Glass. Celena Sardothian is no longer the pitiable, broken, and nearly feral creature we met in the beginning pages of Throne. Celeana is at her deadliest best- scared of losing the people she cares for, and following her heart for fear of repeating the mistakes of the past. But as a reader who now knows the pattern of a Sarah J. Maas novel, I know that nothing good can stay, and pain is just around the corner. I cannot compare the agony of those extraordinary prequel novellas and the beginning of Thone to the heartbreak of Crown- there is no contest, Crown doesn't hurt like all that came BEFORE it. Reveltaions, heartbreak, loss, and thrilling hope all dance along the knife's edge of danger. Maas has given her readers an explosive new addition to the near perfect Throne of Glass series and has thus solidified herself as one of the most talented authors of the age.
