Wow, wow, wow.
Occasionally, sequels can miss the mark, whether they’re a book or a film, but not this time.
Crown of Midnight is a brilliant sequel to Throne of Glass. I could not put it down. In the moments I managed to separate myself from it, all I could think about was reading more.
Maas does an excellent job creating deep and complicated characters and weaves their growth seamlessly into the storyline. The more I read, the closer I felt to the characters and the more I empathized with all their struggles and pain. All great books should cause the reader to feel something. I want to feel their joy, their pain, their excitement, and fear. I want to live in their world with them, and Maas provides that opportunity. I haven’t enjoyed a book as much as this one in a while. I was captivated from the first page until the last. If I had to pick only one word to describe this book, I would choose MASTERPIECE. I loved it.
