Feyre will bring vengeance.
She has left the Night Court – and her High Lord – and is playing a deadly game of deceit. In the Spring Court, Tamlin is making deals with the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knee and Feyre is determined to uncover his plans. But to do so she must weave a web of lies, and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.
As mighty armies grapple for power, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places.
But while war rages, it is her heart that will face the greatest battle.
WHAT I THINK
We’re all a broken, in our own ways – In places no one might see.
Damn it! I don’t know if I’m just a huge crybaby but this book made me cry even more than the previous one. I think The Man is ready to send me to some mental hospital, checking up any vacancies as we speek. He definitely looks at me like I’m a crazy person, crying over a book like someone just died.
Characters, oh how I love each and every one of them! Well not all of them, obviously, but you know what I mean. I want to go live with the family at the Court of Dreams! They are all unique in their own way and even at the times of war, they managed to stay as themselves.
Tamlin, oh Tamlin. All I’m saying is that you had it coming, you really did. Some part of me feels bad for Tamlin but the other part wants to send some vulgar gestures in his way.
The story though. Or the length of this book, whatever you want to call it. For me it was way too long. I mean it could have been much sorter if you left some parts out of it. And for me there was quite a lot of unnecessary parts that could have been left out.
And what are those, you ask? The sex parts. I don’t have any issues with reading about sex, books having sex acts in them. Honestly, ACOMAF was pretty steamy and I really enjoyed that. But in this book there was too much of it. I don’t see why it was necessary to put all that in here. Was it just to make the book longer? Or is there some true meaning for all of this that I just don’t understand? Almost every chapter was about Feyre and Rhys having sex there and here. Just no.
Other than that there were quite a lot of things going on. Many bargains were made. Not sure if all that plotting was necessary either but it is the time of war so you got to do what you got to do.
There were some twists and turns also. Some of them I had been wondering before already and now those were just confirmed. But I still want to read more and know where all of this leads them!
Despite the fact that this made me bawl like a little baby, it still didn’t reach as high as ACOMAF. I liked this, enjoyed it. But I didn’t end up in a huge hangover and I did have some issues with this. I think I would have been happy if this was the last book but then again I want to know if it comes true what Feyre saw with the Bone Carver! And please, let them all have a happy ending!
