“Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.”
When I eventually found the time to start this, I’d already seen a wide range of reactions. Some people were loving it, but a lot of people said they were disappointed. Because of this, I definitely had a few pre-conceived notions. I started the book wary, and it took me a few days – days – to properly get into it. At this point I was thinking “eh, they were right, this is disappointing”.
But then it hit a certain point – AKA when Feyre got off her ass and started fighting for herself – that my opinion completely flipped and I knew that what I was reading was another badass, suck-you-in-deep Sarah J. Maas book.
I thought there were a lot of similarities between this book and Heir of Fire from the Throne of Glass series, but it wasn’t a bad thing. I will never complain about a kickass, self-assured lead female! Feyre’s moments of secluded depression were written perfectly and with justice, just like Ailen’s was in Heir of Fire.
But the one thing in this book that got me, that made me want to read more, was how everythingchanged. Nothing is like it was in the first book, and I spent every moment away from the book thinking about it. I had such a vivid idea of what their world looked like, I could always slip straight back it.. And the amazing people Feyre made friends with truly set it in stone.
Also… Rhysand. Holy crap is that boy good. There’s a special place in my heart carved out just for him.
