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.
With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas' masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
In case you have not read A Court of Thorns and Roses (ACOTAR), I will try to keep them to a minimum though.
I knew this before I even started this book, but this one really reinforced the fact that I ABSOLUTELY ♥ ♥ ♥ Sarah J. Maas!!! This and the Throne of Glass (ToG) series are two of my favorites! I'm actually waiting in the hold line for a library copy of Tower of Dawn, book #6 in the ToG series. I've been waiting SOOO long for it to be released!
I remember reading ACOTAR and loving it. I actually thought that I read this book right after finishing ACOTAR, but I guess I wasn't able to get a copy at that time or something, and the book was just so jam-packed that I thought I read the first two books in the series, instead of just the first.
As always, Sarah J. Maas created an AMAZING, magical world with amazing, magical and complex characters.
I ♥ Feyre! Maas does an awesome job of conveying the conflicting feelings she's experiencing, without sounding repetitive or making the character sound whiny, which happens way too often in YA books.
I love the way women are portrayed in this book! I love how the treatment of different genders and different classes are explored in these books.
THIS BOOK WAS EVERYTHING!!!
I want to say so much about it. I want to gush about everything that I loved about it, but I don't want to give away those spoilers, and I NEED to read the next book in the series RIGHT NOW!
OMG! If I didn't have a copy of the third book on hand right now, I would be throwing a tantrum!
Seriously, I have so much more I want to say, but to avoid gushing and giving away spoilers, I'm just going to read A Court of Rings and Ruin (book #3).
