Feyre has now been able to return to the Spring Court and embrace her life as a high fae. However, when Rhysand returns, reminding Feyre of the bargain she made with him to save Tamlin's life, Feyre becomes immersed into the Night Court, a court of dazzling glamour, but also some dangerous politics. Now Feyre is torn between the two courts, and with their feuding leaders, this could be dangerous for everyone.
Sarah J. Maas has done it again in getting me to love the first book in a series, only to continue and immediately hate it! I am just so done with her books.
This book was heavy, overly descriptive, and just downright annoying. The words were just going way over my head, they didn't make any sense to me and bored me to the point of almost dnfing. This book was WAY too long, and I know that's common with fantasies, but that just made my efforts to get through it even more miserable. Also, this series still does not remind me of a Beauty and the Beast retelling at all.
I hated the characters. Tamlin is a jerk, Rhysand is a creep (sorry not sorry) and Feyre needs to make up her damn mind. She's just so indecisive, ditzy and impulsive all the time. And I don't care what anyone says, the relationship between Rhysand and Feyre is just creepy and based on lust alone for me, and I don't see any chemistry between those two at all.
I really don't know what happened with this book. Maybe the first one was just so much lighter for me, maybe the characters had a heavy change of personality. (they did), but this book was just one big mess. I hated it with a burning passion, and my bitterness with SJM's books has just grown and grown.
I'm sorry to sound really b*tchy in this review, it's just that I keep giving into the hype of this author's books and I keep hating them everytime! So I think it's time for me to break up with SJM's books.
