This book is the second book in a series called Throne of Glass.
So Celaena is now the King’s champion; or more accurately, his assassin. She now faces the hard choices of how best to not get herself hanged for treason, without actually killing any of the people the King is ordering her to kill. And that isn’t her only problem; she is having trouble trusting even those she has come to care about, and uncover the true intentions of those who surround her.
Celaena yet again proves why she has earned her reputation for being the deadliest assassin to ever live as she begins to realise, with the death of her closet friend, that there is more than her own freedom and life at stake in the dangerous game she is playing. Her relationships are near breaking point, and some massive truths are discovered. There is a secret revealed in the last chapter, that if you’ve being paying attention, will seem inevitable once you discover it.
The next book in the series is called Heir of Fire, and has just been released. I am planning to buy a copy at some point in the next week, so once I have read it I will tell you about it.
