I had read Throne of Glass (Book One) and really enjoyed it, but then seemed to be devoured in other series and genres (I went on a Business/Mystery/Biography spree before making my way back to Young Adult/Fantasy/Sci-Fi).
Then I saw Sarah J. Maas announced a TV Show for TOG, and the final chapter of the series was releasing, and I knew it was time to pick it back up!
Buy Crown of Midnight:
And boy am I glad I did!
It's not often I pick up a series and I just want to continue reading and reading and reading through the same one.
I often like to take a one book break between, really take it in, and then come back to the characters.
Well, like the Harry Potter series, Game of Thrones, Cormoran Strike, and only a few others, I want to keep going and going with Throne of Glass!
Sarah J. Maas pulled me in and kept me there with this one!
I knew I liked the series after reading the first book, but I was dying for it. I wasn't in love with it, I should say.
Crown of Midnight changed my mind.
Now I know why people are dying for more and more and are going wild for Sarah J. Maas' books.
This review isn't going to be a summary like you see with some book reviews, but just merely my opinion and a star rating based on what I liked and did not like. I suppose I could have told you that a bit earlier, but hopefully you already know after having read some of my other reviews.
There really wasn't much I did not like about the book. There was one specific occurrence that I felt was a bit forced, but even that turned out to come around and find its way into making much more sense.
Which brings me into what I really loved about the book. Aside from the continuous character development of Celaena, Chaol, Dorian and The King, the consistent twists and turns that Maas is able to throw our way are just incredible.
Every time I think I'm figuring it out, something else takes me for a turn.
Overall I'm giving this one 5 stars. I loved it and would absolutely recommend it to anyone who likes Young Adult and Fantasy/Epics.
I can't wait to start Heir of Fire sometime this month!
I'm curious to see what you guys have to think!
My next read will be the Book Club November Choice: Blood of Elves (Witcher Series Book One) by Andrzej Sapowski if you'd like to keep up with what I'm reading.
Please share your thoughts and keep the Book Club Discussion going in the comment section below!
Absolutely loved this read. There's new developments of magic, new races and borders, assassins, and things that are going to clearly bring this series to all new places. And, all of these amazing things come right with the development of the main characters, who I love that much more with this book. Would definitely recommend.
