This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
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.
This was immensely better than the first one. We had a lot less boring parts and a lot more action.
I loved the romance in this book, it didn’t feel forced as in the first, and it came natural it had a sweet and smoot development with lots of slow-build flirtation. This right here is a fantasy novel with romantic elements, not the other way around, and for that, I’m truly grateful. There’s a ton of other things going on, making love a subplot.
In the first book I was a little reluctant when it came to Feyre, but the growth she’s going through in this sequel is amazing. In the end of this book, Feyre is a completely different character, stronger, and the kind of female lead you’d want to get to know, rather than a female character you’re forced to get to know. The sky is the limit in her development. I wasn’t a fan of Tamlin, he had something odd and twisted about him, and his absent in this book was exactly what I needed in order to figure out why I didn’t like him. So if you’re a huge fan of his, get ready for a huge disappointment! Whom truly shown their true colors in a good way is Rhysand. I love him. Easily the most interesting male lead in any fantasy novel I’ve ever read. He’s not your typical hero and for that, I’m grateful. He made the read even more joyful and I wish nothing but the best for him in the future. I hope he ends up happy. It’s clear that he’s created from a female point of view. The way he thinks seems like dreaming rather than reality. However, that’s why fantasy is so great, men get to think like women and appreciate strong women.
I like how new characters were introduced. Once I read that many new characters were showing up in the book I was skeptical, I thought it was just another way of dragging out the series even more, but those characters turned out to be key to the whole book and plot progression. They were great. Amren, Cassion and Azriel all possessed huge personalities and I can’t wait to see what’ll happen to them.
Overall, and exciting read with the biggest cliffhanger ever as an ending, so if I were you, I’d insure having the third one ready, because you’ll need to get your hands on the third one. I for one can’t wait to see what’ll happen next.
