Author: Sarah J. Maas

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 was totally shocked by how much I loved Throne of Glass and now I am super excited for the sequel Crown Of Midnight! I downloaded the Throne of Glass novellas a while ago and just finally got around to reading them and my love of Celaena and her complete badass-ness has been rekindled. August can not come fast enough.
Side Note: I am a little bothered that the title is "Crown of Midnight" and the cover is like a rising sun...I feel like there was a disconnect between title and cover lol
