Synopsis

“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.”

Review

I do not know how she did it, but I loved this book even more than the first in the series! Maas created such dynamic characters that develop and learn so much throughout the novel (and a hefty novel it is). This book was addictive and very hard to put down, it seemed as if every single chapter ended in a cliffhanger that just encouraged me to read one more chapter. Oftentimes, I had to make myself stop reading in the middle of a chapter to keep myself from falling for the cliffhanger.

Rhysand is beautiful, he irked me in the first book, but like Feyre he grew on me. Now, I live for him! He’s not the only character I loved from this volume, many new characters were introduced that are also beautiful people like the Night Court Inner Circle. In particular, I love Mor, she seems like she would make the best friend.

I am certainly eager to start the next book “The Court of Wings and Ruin” because the end of this novel left a very intriguing opening for the next.

About the Author

“Sarah J. Maas is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series (Queen of Shadows, Book 4, will be out in September 2015), as well as the A Court of Thorns and Roses series (out 5/5/15).

Sarah lives in Bucks County, PA, and over the years, she has developed an unhealthy appreciation for Disney movies and bad pop music. She adores fairy tales and ballet, drinks too much tea, and watches an ungodly amount of TV. When she’s not busy writing, she can be found exploring the historic and beautiful Pennsylvania countryside with her husband and canine companion.”
