Author: Sarah J Maas
Number of pages: 622
Published: May 2016
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.
So if any of you read my January book review then you’d know how in love with this storyline I am! Feyre is such an amazing character and I truly loved Tamlin but this book definitely changes everything. So much happens and there is a lot of character development for everyone and you get to see more of the world too! So when I first started reading this book and it was so slow at the beginning, Feyre was battling with depression and is just generally really sad. She’s lonely as Tamlin is busy and she can’t forget what happened at the end of the last book, she barely sleeps as she has nightmares and doesn’t really talk to anyone either. I actually had to put it down and leave it for a few weeks as it was making me depressed too, but then I picked it up at started reading. Things start getting interesting after the failed wedding, Tamlin grows more distant from Feyre and when he goes on a mission instead of taking her with him he locks Feyre in the house causing her to have a major panic attack (flash backs of her being trapped Under the Mountain) and gets taken to Rhysand’s court by Mor his cousin. I adore Mor okay? I really wasn’t sure of her at first, I though she was nosy and trying too hard to be friends with Feyre but you can understand why later on… I don’t want to give too much away but I was really torn with Rhysand, I hated him in the first book, the way he treated Feyre by forcing her to drink the wine and using her like a puppet but he grew on me. It honestly took until the last few chapters to make me fall in love with his character (the scene where he tells her about his history when she’s in his cabin OMG.) So even though there is a few spoilers in this review there is nothing major than will make you shout at me. Basically, the new characters they introduce in Rhysand’s court are all amazing, Feyre actually stops being sad and goes back to being the strong woman we saw right at the start of A Court of Thorns and Roses (before she got broken Under the Mountain) and the end might make you either cry or at least make you think “what?!” for at least a few days. So go and read it!
5/5. I adore Sarah J Maas and May cannot come quick enough (that is when the third and final book) is released!
