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.
I was extremely happy with this, and all the problems I had with the first book were gone.
I hated the way Tamlin was so overprotective, and that their love seemed so flat. There just wasn’t a lot of chemestry there. But there was in ACOMAF. Fayre and Rhysand’s romance was so much more developed and it had time to grow and become this amazing thing. Rhysand wants to keep Fayre safe but not at the risk of crushing who she is. He wants to help her become more independent, stronger, better able to control her power, and just a more well rounded person.
Rhysand was by far one of my favorite characters in the first book. He was dark, and seemed way more interesting than the rest of what I had read, and it didn’t change in this book. He was still one of my favorite characters, and as an added bonus I was able to learn more about him and the night court.
I was also glad that the romance didn’t entirely consume the plot. I was still a little eh on the sex scene but I think that is more I know its supposed to be a YA novel and it gets pretty explicit.
It’s going to sound silly but my biggest issue I think I had with the book was all the “vulgar gesture”s. I started to roll my eyes every time. And it happened way more that I would care to admit.
Thankfully I won’t have to wait long to read the next book, just have to wait for library to have it. 🙂
