review: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

I love epic YA fantasy with all my heart and the Crown of Midnight is a spectacular sequel to the Throne of Glass.

This book is more of everything – more action, more plot, more blood and way more romance. Yet, as much as I enjoyed the entire book (and believe me I did, I read it twice) I think the best part of the book begins right after Choal’s birthday and from there it’s a roller coaster ride. It’s full of all the feels, from the ones that make you squeal with delight all the way to the ones that make you want to throw the book across the room and shake a fist at someone.

Celaena is a tough character, yet in this book we see a softer, more vulnerable side. It’s a great contrast to her ‘blood lust’ moments, where her rage takes over and no one can stop her.

As for Choal, he’s not perfect, but he’s super close to Peta perfection to me. What I think draws me to him is his ability to fight for what he wants, despite those who oppose him. He’s the ‘super underdog.’ He’s strong, loyal ally and friend and one willing to take risks for those he loves. He proves himself over and over. Why, yes, I’m #TeamChoal.

Of course, after reading the last page of this book I want nothing more than to read book three, like now. Until then, I’ll just try to live by the old adage, good things comes to those that wait.

XOXO, Stacy

  1. Good review. I didn’t quite get into the first book but this one doesn’t sound too bad. Thanks for sharing your thoughts :)

    What? Not into first book??? Actually, I can understand that, this one actually has Celaena showing her ability to kill, and has more intrigue.

Have something to add? (leave a reply)
