Crown of Midnight
by Sarah J. Maas
(Throne of Glass #2)
Published: 2013, Bloomsbury USA
Genre: YA / Fantasy
For the sake of not spoiling anything, I'll try to focus on my reactions. As the sequel to Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight has a much more satisfying story with a less-contrived plot. The competition structure of the story with its intriguing subplots in the first book had felt contrived - there's none of that here. Crown of Midnight is filled with plot twists, betrayals, and mysteries that keep me with the story..
But I had to take an two-month-long hiatus when I hit the middle of the book.
Why, you ask?
