Series: Throne of Glass #2
"A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.
It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend."
From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.
Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.
Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie... and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.
First off, I must say I absolutely love the Throne of Glass series. Celaena is a strong, hilarious, real character. I love her wit and ability to kick ass and take names. I want to be like her in that respect. After reading any of these books, I always have a desire to take up a self-defense class or something. I want to be able to take out people who try to hurt the ones I love. Celaena is such a force to be reckoned with and I love it.
Celaena and Chaol. Sigh. Oh, be still my heart. I had so. many. feels. while reading this book. The first half hurt so good. My heart ached for a love like the one Celaena and Chaol
shared. So many tears. Good ones. And then I had the other feels. Ugh. Sarah J. Maas you might as well have ripped out my heart and stomped on it before shoving it back into my chest. Pretty sure that’s why I put the book down and didn’t pick it back up again for months.
Despite the pain and heartache, I still loved this book. Secrets are slowly being revealed but it’s almost like in exchange for a few truths, we get more unanswered questions. And I LOVE IT!!! The mystery is fantastic!!! It just makes me want more and to read all the books in this series. I can’t wait to see what happens in Heir of Fire.
I highly recommend this book. Actually, I recommend all of the Throne of Glass books. They are AWESOME!!
4.5 out of 5 stars (I gave this one a 4.5 instead of 5 because of all the feels. They hurt so bad and I was sacred. What can I say? When it comes to feelings, I’m a bit of a wimp. But don’t let my fear, scare you off from this book.)
