Blurb:

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.

My Review:

OMG this was the BEST book I’ve read in a long ass time!  Feyre was broken, so effing broken and I honestly didn’t see how she was going to be able to rebuild herself. I could totally see the trauma she experienced breaking her. And after seeing how strong she was in the first book it was hard to witness how far she fell.  And no one seemed like they wanted to approach her to help, like they didn’t care or pretended it wasn’t happening.  Gah it was so frustrating until…..

Rhysand came back to collect on the bargain she made with him. And at just the right time too.  I could not believe how SJM was able to write such rich, bold characters and be able to keep them all distinct and individual. The differences between Tamlin and Rhysand and so similar yet so different.  Where Tamlin was uber protective and held her back, Rhysand’s protectiveness pushed her to break out of her fear and face them. I mean, he was just….perfect. He gave her space while helping her work through her issues. And the side characters in this book! Azriel was brooding and guarded, Cassian was obnoxious yet loyal and Mor was loving yet distant.  All powerful and multi-dimensional characters.  I’d read stand alones about each of them on their own.

I can’t speak of Rhysand and Fayre without giving too much away. Suffice it to say that their feelings evolved emotionally on a deep and intimate level, simmering slowly until It finally boiled over.  Fuck Tamlin, that’s all I have to say about him.  I might just go back and re-read this one again it was so good.

This book satisfies the Kings, Queens and Long Lost Relatives space in my #SFvsFBingo reading challenge.
