Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, read by Elizabeth Evans.

The action-packed, heart-wrenching and fantastically addictive sequel to Sarah J. Maas's epic YA fantasy debut Throne of Glass

Eighteen-year-old Celaena Sardothien is bold, daring and beautiful - the perfect seductress and the greatest assassin her world has ever known. But though she won the king’s contest and became his champion, Celaena has been granted neither her liberty nor the freedom to follow her heart. Celaena faces a choice that is tearing her to pieces: kill in cold blood for a man she hates or risk sentencing those she loves to death. Celaena must decide what she will fight for: survival, love or the future of a kingdom. Because an assassin cannot have it all.... And trying to may just destroy her.

Thrilling

Story was great and emotionally deep. Very thrilling.
I just love the narrator. Imagination at best.

Everything I hoped it would be and more!

After reading the first book I didn't expect it could get any better but I surprisingly loved the second one even more.

It has to be said that Elizabeth Evans is a fantastic narrator.

Sarah J Maas is a Queen, her writing takes you to worlds that you only dream to be able to imagine.

Lets just say I'm obsessed with the series...on to the next.

Better than the first one

This review is for the people that didn't really like first book, but are willing to give the series next try.
There is improvement. As story is still predictable, it didn't bother me so much in this book. Characters are less annoying, maybe with exception of captain of the guard, who I still hate. We learn more about the king and his intrigue, which is fairly good story, and saves some (insufferable then) installments from first book.
I grew to like main character. I just wish she wasn't so praised by everyone around, but oh well... young author common habit to do that.
The best part of this book, is that by the end it changes Celenas environment. She is leaving castle and two dorsk behind, hopefully for good, and for the first time I fairly don't know what happens next. Finally!
With all the flaws it is still not bad entertainment.
I will try third book, to see if it gets better. Will post review about how it went.

Brilliant

Typical brilliance of one of my favourite authors. The voice actor has managed to capture me throughout and made it enjoyable to listen to.

pretty good entertainment.

I like the story and the concept .
The biggest drawback is the main characters bouncing between beeing helpless like a damsel in distress to invincible badass .

Longer than it needed to be

A bit inconsistent. Liked bits of it, found it got better towards the end. Some of the characters are annoying.

This was a ride

This book was great, I read the first one and I was instantly hooked. This one, though, was somehow better than the last one and it's led so well into the next book. So much happened, there was a lot of character development and I really enjoyed the story. I was a bit thrown by the change in character voices a whole book in but I noticed this version was published this year and my throne of glass audiobook is from 2014 or something. I did wonder if that had something to do with the huge change in every character voice but Caleana (forgive my spelling this is an audiobook after all!) I'm hoping as the rest of the audiobooks are from the original publisher date there won't be another inconsistency. If there is I'm going have to try and find an older publication because it may drive me nuts having one book from 2021 with a different narration style! Either way these are great books so far and I'm pretty much trying to find any excuse to binge listen to them (I've even taken up embroidery and I'm 24 😂)

Excellent and gripping

Truly excellent- just as good as book 1. Fast paced and gripping. Full of surprises. I can't wait to download the next one. Narration was faultless too. Best books I've read/listened to in a long time

I think I liked it even less than Book one

I found a lot of parts in this one to be really boring. How many of these do I have to read before I get into it? Also having read the other series first, (I know I should have started with this one) I'm over the lore of it already. From pointless riddles and objectives that don't go anywhere to characters being purposfully vague about details for no reason- everything just feels so flimsy.

THE END. OH MY GOD. YES

this was definitely a must read, there was a few points where i was ahead of the characters in figuring things out which I personally dont like but just wow. worth it in the end.
also the narrators accent for the doorknob was hilarious
