“A nightmare, I’d told Tamlin. I was the nightmare.
Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening 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 of the Court of Thorns and Roses by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.”
OH MY GOD. This book was amazing!
This is my favorite book of the year so far. It was just that fantastic.
I went into this book with kind of an open mind. I know that there has been a lot of controversy surrounding this book since it came out back in May. I had been hearing so many mixed things about the representation of LGBTQ+ characters in this book so I went in knowing to be on the look out for that. I must say that I didn’t really have any problems with the representation in this book. Yes, I agree that there should be more representation in this book but I could tell that the author is trying to incorporate more of those characters into the story and I think that there will be more as this series goes on.
Feyre developed so much as a character in this book. Throughout the first two books in this series, I wanted to see her really come into her own as a character. I wanted her to be more independent. I got that in this book. I loved her as she really started to develop into the High Lady of the Night Court. She didn’t need a ton of support from other characters throughout the book. She really took it upon herself to become a leader and was able to lead the Fae forces to battle against the invading king. It was incredible and I can’t wait to see more of her as the series continues.
As far as the romance aspect of this, once again I couldn’t be happier with the romance between Rhysand and Feyre. They have easily become my favorite bookish couple. The romance really kind of took a backseat in this book, which was completely fine with me. There was just enough romantic scenes between those two characters to make me happy. After all these characters have been through during this series, they deserve to be happy together.
The plot of this book was its strongest part. The action and battle scenes were something that I thought were missing in the first two books in this series. Like I said earlier, I like how the romance (which played a huge part of the plot in the first two books) kind of took a backseat so we focus on the action and what was going on within the story. It was just overall just a great plot and it was everything that I had hoped it would be.
Overall, this was a great book. Like I said, it was everything that I had hoped it would be. Despite the controversy surrounding it, this book is definitely my favorite book that I have read this year up until this point. I can’t recommened this series enough and I highly suggest that you guys go and pick it up for yourselves.
