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's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
This will be a quickie review because quite frankly I don’t want to reveal too much as this is such a overly hyped up book, but I will say that I didn’t love it like I expected to. I do want to give out the warning that there is a cliffhanger for this book so if you hate cliffhangers, I wouldn’t recommend this series in fact the ending of this book makes me want to give up on the series. I might skim through book through or just read the latter half of it, but I didn’t really care to see how the story progressed. Now I would like to point out if you like the amount of romance you find in Urban Fantasy, than you will probably not mind it in this book. However, there isn’t any development in their relationship as far as the romance and their kiss until the 75% marker and that is way too drawn out for my taste. And I liked the story and yes the chemistry between these two is very well done, and I do love the growth we see in our heroine and the eventuality we learn of their relationship and the secrets that Rhysand keeps is truly wonderful, so there were some very positive aspects to this book but there were multiple moments that I wanted to put this book down and just DNF it, because I found myself a bit bored at times. And quite frankly the love interest in Tamlin really made me mad in this book. Because this book really had me NOT liking his character even more than the first book, he is spineless in many ways and Rhysand definitely is a much better leading hero. So overall even though I found the plot line enjoyable, I was disappointed in how the romance was written and still a bit upset over the ending. I have read cliffhanger’s before, but this ending just made me want to never pick this author up again. So maybe eventually I will read her other books.
