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.

Predictable

I originally started this series based on the cover saying something like, “fans of Game of Thrones will enjoy”, this series is not comparable to Game of Thrones. Very juvenile and predictable so far, and this “assassin” is a whiny teenager girl. It’s not terrible and I’m somewhat curious about what will happen so I’m going to continue on to the next one. It’s like one of those terrible movies you can’t stop watching, you know what’s going to happen, but you still have to watch.. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Simply Amazing

After physically reading the novellas in Assassins Blade as well as the first book Throne of Glass I stumbled upon this Audio version of book two and in my haste to find out what happens next decided to listen instead of read. Let me just say. IT. WAS. EXCEPTIONAL!! Experiencing such intricate stories, plot twists and developments from such a talented writer through audio?? I’m never going back to traditional reading after this. I must say 10/10 Fully Recommend!

Engrossing listen

the story is so engrossing. You easily get lost in this world for hours and hate to pause it for any reason.

Too much

I am all for light and easy fantasy books, but this series is absurd. The story just drags with too much seudo-drama. I am done at book 2.

Great read!!

Absolutely love this series!! I can't wait to read the other books. there was a lot more talk of magic and mystery in this book than the first.

Love it!

I really enjoy the story line. The only issue I have is with the narrator, as with the first book. She does ok unless it’s a character that is an adult over 30 or older. She tries to change her voice but just makes them sound slow and dumb. Like if they aren’t young then they need to sound like idiots. It makes me cringe. But if you can get past it, the story is great.

Good book, just didn’t like narrator

Really enjoyed this book in the throne of glass series, wish they had it narrated by someone different but it’s not the worst thing ever

Was hoping this was as good as Court

I devoured Sarah Maas' A Court of Thorn and Roses series and was hoping to find the same here. Awesome that her heroes are strong female characters. 💪 I'm tainted by loving the other series so much. this one I only listened to two.
