After Tamlin’s betrayal and Feyre’s sisters becoming fae themselves, Feyre returns to the Spring Court with Tamlin again. This time she won’t be as blind as she was the last time. Feyre’s goal is to destroy the Spring Court like an apple rotting from the inside. Just like the last two books, Maas keeps this book in first-person narrative to better understand Feyre’s motives. This book takes place in Prythian, not specifically in one court but many. Throughout the book, Feyre learns what her position as High Lady means, not just for herself but to the other members of her court as well. This book is like the “Deathly Hallows” of the Harry Potter series. Decisions are made and ends are met, but Maas still has more to say because the series will continue in 2018. Let’s applaud Maas for writing two killer series, staying on top of her work, and providing accurate release dates.
I loved this book, but many people have commented that this was the worst book of the series, but the truth is this book was ALL plot. There was some character backstory, but it was mostly continuing the plot and following through with plans. There was less romance than A Court of Mist and Fury and that probably disappointed some readers. This book provides a satisfying relief to those of us who were destroyed after A Court of Mist and Fury. I recommend finishing the series by reading this book.
