Feyre is immortal.

As Feyre is drawn ever deeper into Rhysand’s dark web of politics and passion, war is looming and an evil far greater than any queen threatens to destroy everything Feyre has fought for. She must confront her past, embrace her gifts and decide her fate.
She must surrender her heart to heal a world torn in two.
This book was so much better than the first one! So many twists, so many emotions, so much excitement! At the beginning, I wasn’t very sure if this book would do for me. But then I started loving it! And I will mention every single reason for how much I liked this comparing to the first one!
And that’s also why I will start by saying what I didn’t like about this book since this time is way less than what I liked. But by saying I didn’t like, I mean despised.
The sex scenes… Once again I just don’t like how they are written. I don’t feel anything reading them, despite how erotic they are. I don’t even enjoy any part of it or the language used. Plus if they were meant to be sexy it failed miserably for me. It’s basically a bunch of purrs and groans and awkward words trying to be sensual. It might be just me, but I don’t feel anything reading those.
Now, for what I liked I can already tell you very quickly some things: characters, world, plot twists, emotions, friendship, and action!
This book has it all. But the main thing is the freaking characters! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED the Court of Dreams – Rhysand, Feyre, Morrigan, Azriel, Cassian and Amren. They are the heart of this book and they are glorious! If I had to choose a group of friends from any book to turn real it would be them. They are friendship and family in one.
But if there’s something I love in this book its Rhysand. I already liked him in the first book. And in this one, I just got to know him more and more, and I love him! I love how and who he is. Every bit of the book where he appeared. I love his moral, his actions and how he is both broken and strong. And I love how much he cares for who he loves! The only thing I hoped to see more, and we lost a bit in this book was the badass side of him.
I hate and despise Tamlin with all my heart, and how wrong of a person he his. And I loved that Feyre saw that and actually acted.
“I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal.
I was a survivor, and I was strong.
I would not be weak, or helpless again
I would not, could not be broken. Tamed.”
I really enjoyed Feyre in this book… How strong and independent she became. I loved how she tried to find herself after all that happened. How she started seeing how different she became and that what she wanted and needed once was not true anymore.
Another thing I loved about this book is that despite all the romance we have tons of action! There are amazing moments in this book and we see more of the world and all the powers in it. I absolutely love how action packed this book was without being overboard. The book is gigantic, but it never made me bored with all that was happening, if something it made me more excited every time.
This world is amazing and I can’t wait to dive into it again. But if I was to talk about everything I have in my head about this book, this review would be endless. So, in conclusion, I loved this book and I am excited to see how this series is going to evolve.
“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.”
“The Court of Dreams.
The people who knew that there was a price, and one worth paying, for that dream. The bastard- born warriors, the Illyrian half breed, the monster trapped in a beautiful body, the dreamer born into a court of nightmares…And the huntress with an artist’s soul.”
“When you spend so long trapped in darkness, Lucien, you find that the darkness begins to stare back.”
“He thinks he’ll be remembered as the villain in the story. But I forgot to tell him that the villain is usually the person who locks up the maiden and throws away the key. He was the one who let me out.”
