DISCUSSION | THRONE OF GLASS SERIES BY SARAH J. MAAS

Untitled

Warning: This post contains spoilers from the Throne Of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas.

So, I’ve been doing a lot of posts to do with the Throne of Glass series. My only reason? It’s the last series I’ve read, and I can’t read another book because I’m too emotionally dead from it. I love these books so much. I don’t do book fandoms that much. I tend to avoid them for all the drama that comes with – ship wars, fan casting, etc. But I couldn’t stay away from this one.

BOOK REVIEW | CROWN OF MIDNIGHT, SARAH J. MAAS

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Series Number: 2

Publication Date: August 15, 2013.

Genres: Young Adult, High Fantasy

Where I received the book: I bought this book from the Book Depository.

Star rating: ★★★★☆

A summary:

91cvPamvpeLFrom the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as 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.
