As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it.

I’m totally obsessed and enthralled by this series!! If I could kick my own ass for waiting so long to read it, I would. I am beyond in love with the this book! So much so, I stewed over writing this review for days and just decided to gush about how much I loved the book rather than try to write something as epic as the series and fail miserably. So here goes…
Here’s what I loved about:
The emotional aspect of the story is front and center. Feyre is literally wasting away under the expectations Tamlin and the Spring Court place on her. She’s suffering from PTSD after the events that take place under the mountain at the end of book one, but no one seems to want to discuss the ugly truth. While Tamlin grows increasingly impatient and overbearing she withdraws a little more into herself day by day. It was difficult at times to experience that, but it served a purpose. The reader clearly sees these two lovers aren’t meant to be. At this point, they’re just going through the motions and refuse to accept that the relationship is irreparable. The turning point in the story is one of favorites ever.
The characters. I could wax poetic about Rhysand and his court for days. I’ll try to be as succinct as possible. The mask starts to come off and we see him for the true high-lord he is. He’s a magnificent character. Intelligent, flirtatious, bad-ass, and powerful. It’s only a matter of time before he bends the entire world and me to his will. LOL
The complexity of the interpersonal relationships. Typically, I don’t go for back and forth and especially not triangles, but this plot and the interactions between all the courts and characters is fantastically created. I was in awe throughout the series.
I could go on and on, but I’ll just end by saying this was not only an exceptional read, but a truly magnificent journey. I can’t wait to visit this cast of characters again. If you’re like me and you’ve waited to read this series, end the wait now. I give it my highest recommendation.
Buy it, read it, love it!! I guarantee it.
