Title: Crown of Midnight
   Author: Sarah J. Maas
   Release Date: August 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?

My Stance:

     Crown of Midnight is on my list and while I haven't read Throne of Glass as of yet, the series caught my eye and on a whim I picked up the first book. What I enjoyed the most about the book or essentially the concept, which bought to life a world of thievery and assassins. However, it focused more on a girl than the previously thought out mainly male assassins. The issue with the cover I have is, who exactly is it on the cover? I understand that Calaena was the cover of the first book, but this doesn't seem to be Westfall or the Prince but what do I know.

     I am looking forward to reading both books, and hope that the world is as much as I hope. It reminds me of Assassin's Creed, which I don't want to place that expectation on it. The world building will be key and a great sly sense will need to be embedded in every character, or how they carry themselves. I'm curious and we'll see how those pan out.
