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.
Sarah J. Maas lives in Los Angeles, and over the years, she has developed an unhealthy appreciation for Disney movies and bad pop music. She adores fairy tales and ballet, drinks too much coffee, and watches absolutely rubbish TV shows. When she's not busy writing YA fantasy novels, she can be found exploring the coastline of Southern California.

After reading "Throne of Glass", I was afraid - terrified - to read its successor, "Crown of Midnight". I thought it would be near impossible for Maas to write a sequel which could be as fantastic as the first book. I was wrong. I can tell that "Crown of Midnight" is one of the best books I've ever read. It contains all the elements to make it unique: a daring, humouristic, young, intelligent, arrogant,... heroin, romance, magic, conspiracy and some violence. It's unbelievable how an author can write such a book. There isn't a single thing which isn't really good. One of my all-time favourites!
