Waiting on Wednesday #13

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Throne of Glass. It has a fabulous MC who is an assassin and a very good one at that. It also had some twists in it and I love it when a book can surprise me. I also didn't mind the love triange, which is so rare for me. So, I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this second book:

Crown of Midnight
(Throne of Glass #2)
by Sarah J. Maas
Publication: August 27th 2013 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Goodreads summary:
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?

Pre-order from:

I'm curious what or who the "more dangerous forces" are. I know about the king and the issues there, but this sounds like a new threat. Doesn't this sound good? I also love the cover! What do you think? Did you read Throne of Glass? Will you be reading this?
