WoW - Crown of Midnight

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2)

Sarah J. Mass
August 27, 2013 

An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.
But her heart never wavers.

After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.

Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king's bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she's given a task that could jeopardize everything she's come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon -- forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice.

Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?

I'm really loving the female assassin type books as of late. I read Throne of Glass last year and enjoyed it. Hoping to like this one just as much if not more. Also, I love the cover!

What Are You Waiting On?



  1. I haven't read book 1, but I'm not sure if I will or not. I've seen mixed reviews.

  3. I've been wanting to start this series! I've heard great things!

  4. I haven't read the first book yet, but for some reason I thought it was a standalone... Now that I know it's a series, I guess I should hurry up and read the first book so I don't get hopelessly behind! :P
