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.
“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.”
Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”
Sooo, I have always disliked Tamlin, from the moment we met him in the first book, I just didn’t like him. And now, let me tell you, that was changed… because now I hate the guy, and cannot stand him!
Uh, the amount of manipulation, power, and the hold he had over Feyre was disgusting.
I am definitely not one to really talk about the issues in books that a lot of people have these days, because I often overlook them and, you know, just try to actually enjoy the book I’m reading, without constantly looking for flaws.
Anyway, that’s a whole other topic I’d like to do a post on. BUT back to Tamlin. The amount of hideous male dominance, and lack of respect for women that he was just disgusted me. I hope he gets what he deserves.
Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever hated a character more, and he isn’t even technically the huge “villain” in the series, that you’re normally meant to hate.
“When you spend so long trapped in darkness, Lucien, you find that the darkness begins to stare back.”
Anyway, this review was basically about Tamlin because although the book was very long, and you’d think I’d then have alot to talk about, I dont.
I enjoyed ACOMAF, definitely didn’t love it, it’s definitely not ToG yet. However, I am very excited to read the next book, because it seems to be setting up to something awesome!
It was fun to see how the bond between Feyre and Rhys grew throughout this book, but other than that, I honestly feel like not a lot happened.
“There are good days and hard days for me—even now. Don’t let the hard days win.”
All-in-all, this was a great book, and I will be continuing on with the series (even though I wasn’t sure I’d ever get around to this one! haha)
