Crown of Midnight is OUT.
It’s in the wild and available at a US bookstore near you.
Thank goodness, right? If we had to wait any longer for our Celaena-Chaol-Dorian-Nehemia fix, there might be rioting in the streets. You think I’m joking, but there were literally mobs of the violent variety at Book Expo America this year over ARCs of Crown of Midnight. Sarah’s book is REALLY that highly anticipated. And what can I say? It’s awesome and it darn well should be that highly anticipated. Have you guys seen the accolades for Throne of Glass?
Yeah. Your mind is blown by the number of glowing reactions, isn’t it?
And that was just book 1. Book 2 is sweeping the reviewers by storm. A perfect 4.5 stars from RT and a starred review from Kirkus are no minor feat, my friends. Nor is a whopping 4.6 star rating on Goodreads before the book is even out.
But enough hyping up Crown of Midnight–I’m sure you already know what to expect (answer = one hell of an epic fantasy read), and the purpose of my post here is less to pimp out Sarah’s wonderful book and more to congratulate her.
Because honestly, guys, she has worked so hard (as authors tend to do) and all of us here at Pub(lishing) Crawl are SO DARN PROUD to see her next book on shelves. She and her series deserve every ounce of success (and many ounces more, if you ask us).
Now for a really cheesy one-on-one congratulatory message: Sarah, you’re my bestest friend in the whole-whole-whole Axis (Starkillers inside joke there, folks), and when you gave me that ARC of Crown of Midnight in the middle of the Dallas Airport, I cried some of my ugliest tears ever. Yet, in true Sarah-fashion, rather than be all sweet about it, you instead laughed at how ugly I become when I cry. But that’s part of why I love you (you’re just as snide as Celaena).
I honestly could not be happier or prouder to see your next Throne of Glass novel hitting stores.
And, as you say in Crown of Midnight: best friends until we’re nothing but dust. ♥
NOW, to celebrate the awesomeness that is Sarah’s release day, we’re hosting a giveaway of Crown of Midnight! All you have to do is leave a comment below telling us YOUR fave Throne of Glass character (if you have one), and we’ll choose a winner next week!
