Review:      This book is the second book of the Throne of Glass Series.                                                                                                          If you enjoyed the first book then you will love the second book of the series.  The first book was really setting the premises of the series.  This book is filled with issues that are growing and more secrets being revealed. 
     The book continues where the first ended. Celaena is now the champion and assassin for the king. Already sent on several missions she continues to rebel in secret ways. The journey in this book with friends and foes is growing. Her hate/love relationships take a new twist and her friendships are tested. Chaol continues to fight his feelings and there are times you are thinking GET OVER IT! but he still holds back then tradegy hits and all you feel is heartbreak for what it could have been . Dorian continues to warm your heart even from a distance. You can't help but to love and feel sorry for him. Nehemia is ever the most courageous and determind friend. Her strenght really leads Celaena. 
     The one thing everyone seems to neglect is that Celaena is a trained assassin and not just any but the best. In this book everyone, even the king sees the true darkness that lingers beneath the surface
     This book was amazing. The twos book out in the series right now really hit the mark in YA fiction. It has a great balance in mystery, adventure, love, jealousy, and heartbreak. Hope you enjoy it too!

Favorite Moment “I could use the information I’ve gathered about it to bargain with the kind to let me go-or just give me a a shorter contract. Short enough that if he ever finds out the truth, I’ll be long gone.”
  He growled. “He could have you whipped just for being that impertinent.” But then the last part of her words registered, hitting him like a punch in the face. I’ll be long gone. Gone. ”Where will you go?”
  “Anywhere,” she said. “As far as I can get.”
   He could hardly breathe, but he managed to say, “and what would you do?”
  She shrugged, and both of the realized that he’s been gripping her shoulders. He eased his grip , but his fingers ached to grab her again, as though it would somehow keep her from leaving. “Live my life, I suppose. Live it the way I want to, for once. Learn how to be a normal girl.”
  “How far away?”
  Her blue-and-gold eyes flickered. “I’d travel until I found a place where they’d never heard of Adarlan. If such a place exists.”
   And she would never come back
And because she was young, and so damn cleaver and amusing and wonderful, wherever she made her home, there would be some man who would fall in love with her and who would make her his wife, and that was the worst truth of all. It had snuck up on him, This pain and terror and rage at the thought of anyone else with her. Every look, every word from her … he didn’t even know when it had started.
   “We’ll find that place then,” he said quietly.
“What?” her browns narrowed.
“I’ll go with you.” And though he hadn’t asked, they both knew those words held a question. He tried not to think of what she said last night –of the shame she’d felt holding him when he was a son of Adarland and she was a daughter of Terrasen.
