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.
Sometimes there are no words and those reviews are the hardest.
My expectations for ACOMAF were astronomical. I guess they were higher than that. Sarah wiped them all away in like the first 100 pages of the book. My ship even changed in like the first 80 pages. Everything I had hoped for, Sarah just wiped away and I didn’t even complain. Why should I complain? What she gave back was so much better, so much more thought through and astonishing, simply beautiful.
There were new characters introduced and they were all so perfectly flawed.
(I say this quite a lot, but it’s true and I don’t care how much I keep saying it.)
The War has affected them all in some way. I loved how they all dealt with the consequences, on their own and together. How much they’ve grown. Especially Feyre. It killed me to read her suffering.
The world itself didn’t expand, but we got to see more of it, learn more and wander through it. It wasn’t just a mansion in the Spring Court and Under The Mountain, no, it were kingdoms, courts and war camps and lands. So much lands.
The plot was tremendous and kept on building. Things were being revealed and other things made me wonder some more. I loved to get to know more and I loved the mythical aspect of it. Gosh, I can’t spoiler, but I really want to.
The different themes were wondrous. This book was about anxiety and traumas and depression and how to deal with them, but also about love and friendship and family. It was about abuse, toxic relationships and freedom. All of them were discussed. You could see how Feyre was growing and it was incredible to read.
This book was outstanding and so far above ACOTAR. How does she do it? It was so good.
In conclusion, this was seductive and beautiful and packed with some action and dealt with real issues. Now I’m sad, because we have to wait another year. I didn’t want it to end. Perhaps that was one of the reasons why I kept postponing the end.
There will never be enough words to describe this book and I’ve done my best. Read it and find out!
