Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass)

Crown of Midnight - Sarah J. Maas

Man, am I eating my words now. Crown of Midnight was so much better than Throne of Glass was. I think I might have been a little too stubborn by assuming that I couldn't be surprised.

Egg on my face? Maybe. 

Had the first half been as epic as the second half of the book, this would have shot straight to my favorites list. For as much as I ended up loving Crown of Midnight, I can't discount the pokiness of certain parts before all of the crazy showed up.

Chaol. Wrap him up with a bow. I'll take him. He was on my imaginary maybe-watch list before, but I might have to go ahead and add him to my favorite guy list now. Everything that I loved about him in book 1 was magnified here. I do love me those badass guardian types. 

Dorian. He's still boring.

Celaena. Holy plot twists? There were a few moments I wasn't expecting, although I really should have been, considering that these plot twists have happened before in plenty of other books. In a way, the two biggest reveals sort of bugged me. I would have preferred some things to have stayed the way they were. Don't click if you don't want to be spoiled - (view spoiler) Ah well. She's sort of growing on me though.

"I'm afraid severed heads don't travel well."

I'm happy with the turn of events. There was more action, more cutthroat behavior, and more intrigue. I even kind of like how the forbidden attraction thing was turned on its ear and I was forced to have to wonder how situations were going to be rectified. 

Everything has changed. That ending...sigh. How long do I have to wait for book 3?
