Waiting on Wednesday (#20): Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
Book Two of the Throne of Glass series
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Publication Date: August 27, 2013

Summary (from Goodreads):

An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.
But her heart never wavers.

After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.

Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king's bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she's given a task that could jeopardize everything she's come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon -- forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice. 

Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?



I cannot WAIT to read this book! I loved Throne of Glass, and I love fantasy in general. "Team" Dorian! Although Chaol is growing on me, for some reason. And I do appreciate the cover change, even if it is mid-series.

What are you waiting for this week?

  12. Although I wasn’t wow’d by the first cover I like it a lot better than this. This looks like a cartoon. A kick-ass cartoon but still. Plus, WHY DO PUBLISHERS CHANGE COVERS?!?
    I am not a big Fantasy fan but I did like the first book. But I’m totally NOT Team Dorian. Team Chaol!

    1. I know what you about being "cartoon"-ish, because I thought the same thing! It's grown on me though. I love fantasy, and I love Dorian! I wouldn't mind Chaol though. He's grown on me as well :)

  13. Team Dorian -- no way :(
    Team Chaol!!!!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW! Jen @ YA Romantics
