This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.
Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s manoeuvrings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit – and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.
As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places.
This is the first time I’ve ever been this confused as to what I honestly think about the book. The introduction was cool. I liked Feyre, and how different she was, but at around 20 percent I got bored and the book felt like a huge drag. The book had too many descriptions of places and things that had absolutely nothing to do with the book and the development of the plot; frankly, I think I can mention like ten things that were described down to its last detail that we never heard of again.
What had me most annoyed during the entire read was the word “Mate” or “Mage” in Danish. I didn’t count the amount of times it was used but at least 200.
I’m not a fan of Maas’ writing, especially not when it comes to love scenes. They feel forced and they embarrass me. Despite her clumsy way of writing, she’s good at making different character traits for all of the characters we’ve met, and it’s a lot! They all have a huge virility of personalities: it’s easy to tell them apart.
The book was long. Moreover, despite the characters and how cool I though some of them were, I still had issues keeping my interest alive. I was bored for at least 60 percent of the book, nearly quit a few times, but I kept on trying and when I reached 80 percent of the book, I was too hooked to bother with anything or anyone. Those last 20 percent of the book made the difference from giving it a one star rating to four stars. Even though the ending was so epic, I can’t get myself to give it any higher than that. If only I hadn’t been so bored with all those useless information, this would easily have made it into my top five books – but instead, four stars.
I would recommend this series to anyone who likes YA and fantasy. Some people love an overly detailed book, and for those of you, this is going to be one epic read for you. If you like, a straightforward story you might experience some trouble keeping up your interest.
