By now you all know that I adore Celaena Sardothien, heroine from the Throne of Glass series. (Review of novellas)
Well guess what I saw last night while cruising through Goodreads? The cover reveal of Crown of Midnight, the second book in the series!
And it is STUNNING. I mean, just look at this . . .
How that for a chick-butt girl! She has no equal. I am SO glad the American publishers have repented of their evil ways and have given this book the cover it deserves. Check here for my post on the US versus UK cover of a Throne of Glass.
Now for the synopsis of Crown of Midnight
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?
The hardcover launches on 27 August 2013 published by Bloomsbury USA Children. I can't wait.
So what do you think? Do you love it as much as I do?
