Goodreads Summary:

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?
My Thoughts :

 I loved Crown of Midnight just as much as Throne of Glass, I read it immediately after finishing Throne Of Glass so I am having a bit of time remembering specifically what happened in which book, but I will do my best.  I am so happy to say that Crown of Midnight  does not suffer from second book syndrome in my opinion. I felt like the plot was really furthered and it didn't sit like I feel some second books do and it made it even more enjoyable.

So much more was revealed about Celaena's past and who she was before she became an assassin. I loved learning more about her and because nobody in the book knew what you knew and I felt like I was in a on a secret, and I always enjoy that.  To the king Celaena is the perfect champion, killing on his orders and bringing back proof for him to see, but if you know anything about her you know that she doesn't follow anyone's orders but her own. There was so much more Chaol in this book and I am completely and totally in love with him. I really enjoyed the times where you felt like Celaena was just a regular girl and didn't have all of these responsibilities on her shoulders, she loved spending her new money on fancy clothes, I loved the way that Sarah described them.

Chaol and Celaena's relationship definitely progressed in this book and I loved every second of it, If the whole entire book was just the two of them interacting together I would have still loved it.  Chaol brought Celaena out of her shell and I loved that she let him in a bit and you got to see a different side of her and it made me able to connect with her more than in the first book.

Overall, I loved Crown of Midnight, although it didn't really end on a cliffhanger I  am still dying to read the next book because I am dying to know what happened and I can always use a bit more Chaol in my life. If you enjoyed the first book, then you will love this one.
