"A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend."From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie...and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

Who was I supposed to buddy-read this with? It happened in a comments conversation and now I can't for the life of me remember who it was. :(
I remember loving this the first time around, but I feel like I enjoyed Heir of Fire more than Crown of Midnight. If anything Maas know's how to write a heart breaking ending in these books. What happens with Chaol and Celeana in Crown of Midnight is so heartbreaking. Maas just needs to stop tearing...
What can I say about this book, or this series for that matter, that hasn't already been said? It's what kept me from writing a complete and comprehensive review of the first book, too, because so much has been observed and discussed already. There is a bit of a sophomore slump with second books i...
Since this book is the second of a series, I was ready to completely dislike it and move on to the next book quickly. I definitely got through this book fast, but not because it was horrible. There was so much going on! It's rare that I like a second book in a series, and it's even rare-r that I lik...
