Crown of Midnight –
Bloomsbury Childrens

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?
Synopsis from goodreads.com

Chances are I’m cheering for the “wrong” team in this one. Again. I’m putting that in quotation marks since I firmly believe that there is no really wrong team in a book. At least as long as the author knows what they’re doing and the characters are not just page-fodder. This is no concern with this book. At all. I loved Celaena from the very start in Throne of Glass and I’m really looking forward to reading how her story continues.

Which character’s story can’t you wait to dive (back) in again? Let us hear from you in the comments.
