Waiting on Wednesday: Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2)





"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


August 27th cannot come fast enough!  We have been drooling over the second installment of the Throne of Glass series, Crown of Midnight for what seems like FOREVER!  Well okay, since last year's release of Throne of Glass which left us thirsting for more Celaena, Prince Dorian and Captain  Chaol Westfall!  

I mean really, who doesn't dream of being an irresistible and gorgeous assassin surrounded by a handsome and wealthy Prince and a hot and rugged Captain who are both vying for your affection? I mean COME ON!  Let the countdown begin...

Summary courtesy of Goodreads

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?
 **Update, Bloomsbury Kids is currently offering a Crown of Midnight signed cover art print to the first 5,000 people who pre-order and email Hookedonbooks@bloomsbury.com proof of purchase!  I have mine pre-ordered....do you?  More info here.**
