This week I am excited for...
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? (From Goodreads)
This is why I am excited to read Crown of Midnight: what was it that I liked and do I still like it. Crown of Midnight is out next week, on August 27th, 2013. I've seen a lot of positive reviews, and a lot of people saying that this book outdid it's predecessor, so I'm thinking it is time for a reread of Throne of Glass!
And I am sorry, but I hate these new covers. If I weren't so curious, I would never buy this. That's just my personal opinion.
