*This review is spoiler free for the entire series*

Right off the bat, I'm going to apologize in advance for my fangirling, because I just have so many feels about Crown of Midnight. First of all, Crown of Midnight was absolutely incredible. After reading it, I was just like, "I'm sorry, but what did I just read? What? WHAT?" But in a good way, of course. There were just so many things and all the mystery and all the magic and this is a ridiculous sentence.

Anyway, once again, Sarah J. Maas delivered on an exciting adventure with the ever sassy and completely badass Celaena Sardothien.

The best part about reading Crown of Midnight after waiting such a long time after Throne of Glass was that I got to jump back into the incredible world Sarah J. Maas built and catch up with the awesome characters, who all continued to be awesome in this book. One of the best parts was more Chaol! I'm a huge fan of Chaol, so I especially enjoyed some more of him.

The way Celaena's character fleshes out more in Crown of Midnight is awesome as well. I never really thought of Celaena as a character with a lot of secrets, but as Crown of Midnight progressed, it became more and more apparent to me that she had more secrets than I had ever imagined. Finding out these secrets throughout the story (and especially at the end) was so much fun and it gave Celaena a lot of background that was a mystery before.

All in all, I can't believe I waited so long to read Crown of Midnight. If you haven't read Throne of Glass yet, I highly recommend that you do so because this series is awesome! The ending of this book is absolute craziness after craziness and I cannot wait to see what Sarah J. Maas has in store for Heir of Fire!

    And I do really like reviews that don't spoiler earlier books in a series. It helps me to know if I want to invest in a series.

    1. I just started Heir of Fire today and I cannot wait to see what happens! It seems like it's going to go in a very different direction since Celaena is in a new setting.
