This novel is just as good as the last one promised it would be. Meaning that it satisfied me at every possible turn that it took. And it did take quite a few wild turns. I expected so much out of this novel, and I’m very thankful that it didn’t disappoint me. For Sarah J. Maas is a very excellent author. An I refuse to allow her to make a crappy novel, when she has yet to do so.
After everything that Feyre has gone through she still can’t catch a break. And because of her rotten luck she’s now in the one place that she refused to go back to. Tamlin’s palace in the Spring Court. The home of the very man who tried to lock her within his walls. However, Feyre is doing so with a higher purpose in mind. For Tamlin is dealing with a man who is completely insane. One who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. An Tamlin is nothing to him, except to use as his pawn. And even though Tamlin refuses to see it Feyre doesn’t. So she’s using her current position to plant distrust and deceit into his mist. One that will hopefully extend into both his armies and in his Court. However, not everything may go according to plan if she doesn’t keep an eye on Lucien. For Lucien believes that Feyre knows more than she’s letting on. Even more so when it comes to the person she claims to have forgotten. Because Rhys has the one person that Lucien will do anything for. So if it means outing Feyre to accomplish that, then he will. But Lucien is the least of her worries. Especially when it all comes down to either Lucien or I’ll Ianthe. For, in which case she’d chose Lucien each time. Because the true mastermind behind everything that has gone wrong is actually Ianthe herself. An Tamlin is just another one of her pawns to get what she truly wants. Which is as much power as she can possibly get away with. But she won’t get away with it if Feyre has anything to do with it. For Feyre needs to get back to Rhys as quickly as possible. An she’ll take out anyone who tries to get in her way.
This novel would be classified as a young adult urban fantasy novel. An it can be found next to any of Sarah J Maas’s other novels. And this novel is no different from any of the other novels in this series. It’s full of drama, passion, adventure, action, and some of the best plot twists that I’ve seen in a while. It’s all brought together by two of the best main characters that I’ve seen in a long time. They both flow together so naturally, it’s almost as if they’re the yin and yang of this novel. Which is why I’m giving this novel such a good recommendation on his behalf. For I highly recommend that all urban fantasy lovers out there give this novel a go. It’s completely captivating and will have you hooked into it by the very first page, if not the chapter.
