My pick for this week is:
Crown of Midnight
by: Sarah J. Maas
To be published: Aug. 27th, 2013
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?
Can I just take a second to swoon over this cover?! I have Thrown of Glass in ebook format BUT I will be buying a hard copy and it will match the hard copy I buy of Crown of Midnight. It’s just perfect!
Now the blurb! Where will Celaena’s loyalties lie?! I’m a team Chaol lady myself but will Maas make my dreams come true?
Ugh how I have missed Celaena and Chaol! The first book was such a amazing story I can’t wait to see how Maas continues it!
