(This is a spoiler free review because I don’t want to spoil those who haven’t read the book.)
So first and foremost, I had this dilemma of not wanting to read this because I didn’t want this series to end. I wasn’t ready to say good bye to Rhysand and Feyre just yet. But then again, I was also thinking that I really want to know how things would turn out for all of them.
So I decided just to go with it and just slowly devour the book than binge reading it. I love that I read it slowly; I was then able to understand and savor the story and how everything feels.
The first thing that I love about this book is the fact that Feyre is now someone I adore because of her bravery and how she’d do everything she can just to protect the people she loves. She did a lot of things in this book that you want to know about. You’ll love Feyre more with this book. Rhysand, the High Lord of the Night Court, is as always the best. He is still this charming Rhys we all know from the first book until this book. But the part close to the ending almost broke me. It brought me to tears and I was waiting for a plot twist, and it happened and I’m glad the book didn’t end in a sad note.
In this book you’ll have this love hate situation with some of the characters. Like Elain, Nesta, Amren, Tamlin, Mor and probably for Feysand. But then again, it would really depend on you. But for me, I have some issues with the decisions made by some of the characters.
I love that we got to see more of the other courts because in the previous books only the Summer, Spring and Night Court were featured. It’s nice to see the Winter Court’s place and it’s High Lord. Also about Dawn and Autumn Courts. We also got the chance to know the other High Lords better.
Also, I love that everything was well put into place but I just wished the book was divided into two. As much as I love the book, there is so much going on in one book. It seems the events were having too fast. But then again, if it ws divided the story might end up to draggy. And w don’t like dragging stories or plots.
So, all in all, I love the story and how everything was written. SJM would always be my favorite author, one of my favorites though. I can’t wait for her next books and I can’t wait to read the rest of the Throne of Glass books.
Thank you for reading and have a great day!
