“Stars flickered around us, sweet darkness sweeping in. As if we were the only souls in a galaxy.”

I grinned so much during this book, my jaw hurt. I loved the friendships and the Christmassy feel, plus Rhysand!!

Not to brag, but I read it in one sitting…

“Dangerous words, Rhysand,” Amren warned, strutting through the door, nearly swallowed up by the enormous white fur coat she wore. Only her chin-length dark hair and solid silver eyes were visible above the collar. She looked— “You look like an angry snowball,” Cassian said.”

It was funny, Heart warming, and at one point I got a little choked up. This story to me what very much a ‘what happens after a war novel’

“To the blessed darkness from which we are born, and to which we return.”

Synopsis

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.

“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.”

This Book is the best out of the trilogy. There’s a lot in this book, and I can’t say much with creating spoilers, which will simply not do.

That being said…

Rhysand is the most handsome High Lord. Rhysand is the most delightful High Lord.Rhysand is the most cunning High Lord

Review:

WOW!!!

I was about a year late for the hype of this book. I read this book, the first time in January 2017, and it blew me away.

Firstly, the woman on the cover is wearing a very decorative feather outfit, and of course THAT tattoo (if you don’t know what I’m talking about -read it) IMHO, the cover is simple and tells you very little of the story until you have read it.

Prior to this, I hadn’t read any books with Faes in, and what the author calls Fae, I would think elves- like Lord of the Rings.

When you open the book, the first thing I notice is a Map of the magical realm called Prythian. It looks a little bit like The British Isles, with Hybern looking like Ireland. Prythian is broken up into courts, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, day and night courts, with a wall dividing them and the Mortal Realm.

The story begins with Feyre, a Human who kills a ‘Beast’ to ensure her family survive the winter. Her punishment lies on the other side of the Wall. She is brought to the Spring Court, by Tamlin- The High Lord.

Let me make this clear for you, girl: you can either come live at my home in Prythian- offer your life for the wolf’s in that way- or you can walk outside right now and be shredded to ribbons. Your choice. – Tamlin

Feyre is introduced to the cruel, but beautiful world of Prythain, with its strange dreamlike creatures, and curses. But can Beauty survive falling in love with the Beast?

“I love you,’ he whispered, and kissed my brow. ‘Thorns and all.”

Recommended to: Everyone!!!
