Fantasy Teen fiction by Sarah J. Maas, second in series. Celeana is now the King's Assassin, and tasked with eliminating anyone the King wants dead. Celeana is not thrilled to be the hitman for the cruel, devious, dictator King. There is unrest in the Kingdom, and rumors that a group wants to overthrow the King. Celeana remains friends with the King's heir, Dorian, and with the Princess Nehena, whose country has been taken over by the King.
This is an exciting, action-packed, well written story, filled with intrigue and deception. If possible, it is just as good, if not better than the first. The cliff hanger is awesome. This series is worth your time and credits.
