Before she was deadly - Now she is unstoppable!

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. The slavery of the suffocating salt mines of Endovier that scarred her past is nothing compared to a life bound to her darkest enemy, a king whose rule is so dark and evil it is near impossible to defy.

Celaena faces a choice that is tearing her heart 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.

Love or loathe Celaena, she will slice open your heart with her dagger and leave you bleeding long after the last page of the highly anticipated sequel in what is undeniably the hottest new fantasy series.

Industry Reviews

I believe the word "unputdownable" was created for this very book
Praise for 'Throne of Glass',

Once Upon a Time Without a doubt the best fantasy book I have ever read in my life
Praise for 'Throne of Glass', K-Books

Packed with brilliant, intelligent and witty characters, corrupted rulers, dark and good magic alike. The world-building is incredible, and the plot promises something even greater from the sequel ... This is not one to be missed
Praise for 'Throne of Glass', Pen to Paper

Like Cinderella's love story and the action and competition of The Hunger Games, handsome princes, ball gowns and deathly masquerade balls? Then this is the book for you! This book is going to be HUGE!
Praise for 'Throne of Glass', Dark Readers

A rich and powerful sequel that will be loved by Throne of Glass fans everywhere!
Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', Bookworm Blogger

Enthralling and well-paced, exhilarating and wonderfully-written
Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', Realm of Fiction

With an ending that left me gaping in shock, my heart battered and my knuckles white, Crown of Midnight was a brilliant sequel and I can't wait to be back in Celaena's world again
Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', So Many Books, So Little Time

There are seriously no words to explain how epic this book was. I am still sat here completely reeling from the ending and my head is just spinning from all the epic awesomeness that happened
Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', K-Books

The plot is riddled with intrigue, and the fighting comes thick and fast. Crown of Midnight does not disappoint! Praise for 'Crown of Midnight', Dark Readers

A thousand times yes!


I'm a casual reader, but this book now has me waking up early and going to bed late just so I have more time to keep reading!

Brilliant second instalment!


Not a book for the faint hearted - Celaena presents the king with a severed head in a bag within the first few pages - Crown of Midnight is a fantastic continuation of the story which started in Throne of Glass. Celaena has four years to earn her freedom from the ruthless King of Adarlan. But it's not going to be an easy task. Ominous shadows, spies, wyrdmarks and other magical threats haunt the castle. Celaena has to navigate cautiously into the outlawed realm of magic to save other kingdoms from Adarlan's power-hungry King whilst appearing to do his bidding. I love the characters in this book. Celaena is every bit the cold-hearted blade for hire when necessary. But she's also fiercely loyal to those she loves. Romantically, things develop at a great pace and I loved reading the softer side of Celaena in love. Prince Dorian is also a character in turmoil - with his body betraying him and the things that he's known all his life changing before his eyes. This wasn't something I was expecting but enjoyed reading it. Chaol, Nehemia and other favourites from Throne of Glass are still around making things interesting along with a host of new characters with their own agendas. There's never a boring moment in this novel. Awakening magic, Celaena's job as an assassin, political threats and other tragedies keep the plot moving at a fast pace, There's a lot of twist and turns that I wasn't expecting but fit perfectly. Heart break and misfortune seem to follow these characters however they seem stronger for it. I loved this series and recommend it to fantasy fans - young and older adults alike. There's a lot going on and I think Maas' writing style would appeal to all ages. I'm delighted that this series is going to have five books in total because after reading Crown of Midnight I can't see myself wanting to leave Celaena and the world Maas has created anytime soon.
