Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings 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.
In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.
Wow! Okay, let’s do this.
A lot of people say that the story was rushed and I don’t think so. Everything builds up slowly, like brick by brick and I feel that everything falls perfectly in their rightfully places. It felt like everything was happening in a very calming pace.
Rhysand is as charming, swoon-worthy and gorgeous as ever especially when he unleashes his exponential powers as the one and only High Lord Of The Night Court. Feyre continues to pave her own path and I can’t be more supportive of that. He truly makes and shows who’s boss.
I really like how Sarah make the characters’s development happening, some very noticeable and some barely. We get to see more of Elain and Nesta and I really like how much they’ve evolved to maintaining strong in their own ways. I feel like they both switched roles from the first half and the later half – where one becomes depressed and the other actually try to be a bit social.
I have to say that this book didn’t bring me that much feels into it. I kind of already expected what was going to happen on Page 666. Deep down, I just have a feeling and my gut is telling me that someone will die. I don’t know who but someone will. I’m sure of it. But not only Sarah surprises us with almost two near deaths and an actual death but everyone lives. I guess I have to admit that I was glad. A bit disappointing but glad.
I really look forward to what Sarah has to offer for the next book in this beautiful world. Unfortunately, it’ll take us a year to find out. Nonetheless, I’m still excited for it.
