Third Sentence Thursday (1) - May 14, 2015
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas
I am currently reading Crown of Midnight, the second in the Throne of Glass series, by Sarah J. Maas so here are three sentences for you!
(1) "She had to look away in order to force her eyes to stop burning as she nodded." p. 41
(2) "But it had been too late to stop Celaena from burning the dress she'd worn the night of Chaol's birthday." p. 277
(3) "This is what Elena wanted me to learn." p. 357
From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.
Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.
Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie... and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for
