Well, I certainly like this book better than the first.
Crown of Midnight is definitely more intense and suspenseful. I don't think the first book got me so sucked in as this one. Celaena here is more badass, and absolutely amazing.
And it is with this book, we get sort of a clearer direction of what Celaena is going to do with this series. Also, we get to understand more about the magic that lies in this land of Erilea.
I am definitely #TeamDorian, guys. Crown of Midnight doesn't really feed me as much Dorian as I would like, but I can't help but to enjoy Celaena and Chaol bits. Well, they are both so passionate, it is rather hard to ignore.
I'm looking forward to what the third book has to offer. Hopefully more deadly Celaena and more Dorian.
