Finally! I finished the Throne of Glass sequel a year after I read the first book, Throne of Glass! And I regret NOT reading this (or listening) book ASAP! Why am I so behind with this series? I mean, Crown of Midnight DEVASTATED ME!
See, something happens here TWICE that I can’t even…! I mean, both really left me reeling and I can’t seem to move on from that. And this happens a little bit past the halfway mark. And then it gets even more devastating after that.
What’s more devastating?
Well, I’m not going to spill the beans and tell you all the spoilers. But I will because I am EVIL like that! [spoiler]Princess Nehemia DIES AND I CAN’T EVEN!! Her relationship with Celaena was one of the highlights in Throne of Glass and now she’s just gone. I mean, I totally get what Celaena feels.[/spoiler]
You said TWO THINGS!
Well, we finally know who Celaena picks! But then something happens and OMGTHEFEELS! [spoiler]Celaena and Chaol finally HOOK UP! I mean TOGETHER! And I am so happy that Celaena is happy (finally).[/spoiler] But then the above happens and [spoiler]Celaena loses it and almost kill Chaol![/spoiler]
Yes. Those two things, now three things happened. Which really explains why I was devastated. And rightly so. I just can’t take all the pain Celaena has gone through. And I mean she really has gone through a lot. Another thing that is revealed in the end will explain it all.
How many revelations ARE there?!
There are a lot. A few of them were hinted in the first book but it is finally validated on Crown of Midnight. So yes, the plot thickens. BTW since I already read Heir of Fire, I can honestly tell you that IT REALLY DOES.
What happened to Prince Dorian?
Oh, I almost forgot Prince Dorian [spoiler]has MAGIC! How ironic was it that magic was outlawed by his father, eh? Now, Dorian is in a bind because he can’t share his magic with just anyone! Plus, he also sees Celaena and Chaol’s relationship develop so he is double sad.[/spoiler]
Yes, way. See, the plot really thickens! It’s just revelations upon revelations and it just keeps getting better! The most amazing thing about it is that the book is written in a way that didn’t confuse me at all.
Tell me about the audio
Crown of Midnight is still read by Elizabeth Evans and she is still as amazing as ever. No weird accents here, too!
Well, what are you waiting for? Go forth and read or listen this sh*t because it is just AMAZING! And the ending was just …. !!!
