Completely Spoiler Free Review
This may be my favourite book of all time, it is so much better than the first book in the series. So go read A Court of Thorns and Roses, then you can read the rest of my review.
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
THE REST OF THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM THE FIRST BOOK (YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED)
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.
THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS
This book is amazing! Like new favourite book amazing.
The book picks up three months after the ordeals of facing Amarantha and Feyre is anything but okay. She struggles to deal with what she had to go through and this made the book very realistic (I know it is a book about faeries and she was resurrected from dead, but regardless).
The plot of this book is just jaw dropping spectacular. I had to work for the first three days I was reading this book, and it made me so sad every time my lunch break was over because it meant I had to stop reading. It also meant I couldn’t stay up until the wee hours reading A Court of Mist and Fury either. There were a couple of slow bits, but they didn’t last that long and most of the time the story moved forward at a great pace.
We’ve already talked about Feyre now let’s talk about the evil man who whisks her away for one week of the month. The High Fae of the Night Court, Rhys was wow! I loved the banter between Feyre and him, it made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion. Rhysand was only really in the book when Feyre is Under the Mountain, so it was really nice to see Rhys no longer a whore slave and you know free to run his court again.
There’s not much else I can say about this book that isn’t spoiler-ry other than Sarah J. Maas just became my new favourite author.
If I could give this book a higher rating I would but I work on a five star rating system.
