It's been a long month, especially for me as I've just done a bunch of exams for my GCSEs. Surprisingly, I still managed to read quite a few different books. Some were disappointing, but most were brilliant. Despite me loving A Monster Calls and A Game of Thrones, the winner this month is clear: Crown of Midnight, you beaut, you.
I adored Throne of Glass - the synopsis drew me in, and Maas delivered on her promises. I waited ages for Crown of Midnight to come out, so when I got my hands on an ARC? I was kind of screaming the house down. I started it immediately, and although at first I was a bit worried, it soon turned into the story I
knew and loved.
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?
