READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
Feyre is back at the Soring Court. Now that Tamlin is aligning himself with Hybern, she must do everything in her power to uncover their plans. Playing the timid, docile, and broken girl once again, Feyre infiltrates the Spring Court to protect not only her mate, but the people of the Night Court as well.
Words cannot describe how excited I was to finally get my hands on this book after a year of waiting.
I absolutely love Feyre as a character. There are a lot of people who think Maas over does it with her female characters but I love them! I love all the plotting she does at the start of the book. She begins to plot her revenge in such a maniacal way and it is wonderful. Every little thing she does is for a specific purpose. It was fantastic. And I love Feyre and Rhysand … and Rhysand… one of the best male characters ever written. He loved Feyre unconditionally, would do anything for her, and still let’s her be strong and make her own decisions. And his loyalty to Cassian, Mor, Amren, and Azriel is so unwavering.
I loved that we got to meet more of the High Lords. It’s always nice when there are some new characters. I loved all the action in this book too. There was plenty of action spread out throughout the book to make it so you don’t want to put it down. I will say I thought some of the sex scenes were a tad unnecessary. They didn’t add to the story, you don’t need the sex to show the bond between Feyre and Rhysand. It just makes the book longer. I loved the addition of Jurian in this book, he made everything more interesting.
I did have some trouble getting into this book at the beginning. I don’t know what it was but it wasn’t until almost the halfway point that I really started to get hooked. I even started sneaking into the back room at work to read a page or two now and then.
And oh my god that ending! First I was mad, then sad, then happy, then ugly sobbing, then so relieved I could have cried again … all in the span of about 20 pages. It was awesome!
I can’t wait a whole year for the next book to come out! Someone find me a time machine!
