Omg! Such a fantastic ending to a great series and even left open for another book! Can’t wait! The plot was just amazing, I loved the development of all the characters and everything that was revealed about them, and the world building and ending were perfect! I cried so much throughout this book, which I never do! A must read! Do note that this book has graphic sex scenes and should be read by mature young adults only.
Taking place right after the first book, Feyre is now back in the Spring Court attempting to gather any information she can about Tamlin and Hybern’s forces. Concurrently, the Night Court is trying to figure out who to trust and how to gather an army large enough to destroy Hybern’s in order to protect all of Prythian as well as the human lands.
“You belong to all of us, and we belong to you.”
Wow! This book just had all the feels! I actually cried a bit, which I almost never do! I was just so connected to the characters and the story. The pacing of the book was absolutely perfect though I was worried towards the end that it would wrap up too quickly. I was surprised to find that the battle that takes place was described so well! While it was going down I wasn’t actually sure what the outcome of the battle was going to be because both sides were so powerful.
I was so glad that this book wasn’t too predictable. I kind of had an overall idea how it would end but there were tons of twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. *Major Spoilers* I couldn’t believe who Lucien’s father was but was upset when neither of them was told the truth, and omg! I cried so much when Rhysand died and then again when they brought him back. Also, the scene with Feyre’s father was so so so sad 😦 and I was so worried that Cassian or Nesta was going to die and then I just would have had to rip the book in half. I also couldn’t believe what Amren did! I actually had to read the part twice to make sure I was reading it right. At least that ended up working out well. Oh! and the scene with the Suriel made me cry too! *Major Spoilers*
Overall, I was really happy with how the book ended though there are still some things left unanswered, especially regarding the human queens and Lucien’s father so I’m excited where Maas will take part two of this series! There is still so much more I want to know!
I love that the world is expanded upon even more. We get to visit even more courts in this one and they are all just incredible.
The characters were developed even more throughout this book and I just couldn’t believe some of the information that was revealed. I can’t wait to learn more in the following books (hopefully with the same characters).
“It’s a rare person to face who they are and not run from it – not be broken by it.”
Learning more about Mor, Cassian, and Amren, and Azriel was just awesome! I also loved that Lucien played more of a role in this book but then hated it when he disappears for a long time and we get no chapters in his POV.
As far as relationships go I love Feyre and Rhysand together! I know that Lucien is supposed to be Elain’s mate but I just don’t like it after reading this book. I really feel like Azriel and Elain should be together especially after everything that happens. *Spoiler* I just couldn’t believe how comfortable Azriel seemed around Elain, that he actually gave her his special knife, and how he almost got himself killed rescuing her. I feel like they would be good together and Azriel needs to get over Mor since that is not going to happen. I can’t believe that after all this time Mor is a lesbian! I wonder why she was getting in the way of Cassian and Nesta then? Hmmm. *Spoiler*
It’s not for certain but I really hope Nesta and Cassian end up together! Maybe this will be addressed in later books but they are just perfect for each other! 🙂
There is no series name or book number and I hate that Feyre is again featured on the front. Otherwise, the overall design is really nice and there are no blurbs which is a plus.
