When you do, I want you to remember that it wouldn’t have made any difference to me. It’s never made any difference to me when it came to you. I’d still pick you. I’ll always pick you.
Oh my. I loved Throne of Glass but there are no words to express how Crown of Midnight has made me feel.
In Crown of Midnight we really get a glimpse of what Celaena is truly capable of. She’s ruthless, kind, fierce, and broken. She is by far one of my favorite heroines I’ve ever read about. She’s a walking dichotomy and I love her for it.
While this series isn’t romance driven it’s still very much present. I loved seeing her relationship with Chaol grow. I won’t say much more aside from how I feel like my heart has been punched by the twists and turns of their relationship.
New characters are introduced and old ones develop. I absolutely adore Chaol, Dorian and Nehemia. Watching their characters navigate the treachery of Adarlan is so beautifully done by Maas. The struggle to rise to their true identities and destinies is lovely but painful at times to watch.
Honestly, I’m not sure I can do anything but gush about this book right now. The ending has me all up in knots. Crown of Midnight blows Throne of Glass out of the water, guys.
I can’t say enough good things about this book. I’m sitting here unsure if my heart is breaking or swelling. I want to laugh and cry all at once. Everything has to be okay in the end. It has to be.

Just finished this book a couple of days ago too and felt the exact same. Around the halfway point I was scared to continue because I knew something bad was coming and wasn’t sure I could take it.
Have you started Heir of Fire? I’m about halfway through and I am completely terrified to continue because it’s about to get super intense (my friend’s words, ahha!) .
