Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas

Summary from goodreads:
Celaena Sardothien is the king’s Champion—yet she is far from loyal to the crown, for the man she serves is bent on evil. But working against her master in secret is no easy task. As Celaena tries to untangle the mysteries buried within the glass castle, she can trust no one, not even her supposed allies Crown Prince Dorian, Captain of the Guard Chaol, and foreign princess Nehemia.
Then, an unspeakable tragedy shatters Celaena’s world. She must decide once and for all where her loyalties lie . . . and whom she will fight for.
This book is even better than the first. Why oh why did it take me so long to read this series? I am reading book 3 next, no waiting! I will forever read everything Sarah J Maas every writer.
Her characters are AMAZING. Celaena is officially my favorite heroine in YA. She is ridiculously smart, she could kill you, she loves fiercely, she will do anything for her dog. She is just the best. And her friends and enemies are just as awesome. There are no flat characters in these books (even a door knocker has a strong personality!).
The plot is SO good. There were so many little things put into the first book that are expanded on in this one and it was done expertly. This book could be master class for how to write the second book in a series. It never felt like filler, it never dragged, and it was perfection. I won’t say more because spoilers, but there is some love and some hate.
Read this series. You won’t regret it. Well, unless you hate having feelings because this book will give you ALL of them.
