By Sarah J Maas.
Genre. YA Fantasy.
Series. A Court of Thorns and Roses (#2)
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.
After the sufferage everyone suffered under the mountain we are exposed to a new side of Maas’s wonderful characters. With both Feyre and Tamlin suffering from the trauma they experienced both of them suffer to recover from those events. With that we see how Tamlin becomes possessive and how Rhys becomes Feyres saviour.
I love how Tamlin’s true side becomes visible to the readers and how Rhys true side also become visible. I truely fell in love with Rhys in this series as he sees not only Feyre but all his friends and family as equals. This novel not only has a fantastic plot but also beautifully shows the meaning of family and loyalty. We are also exposed to more of Prythain and the courts, as well as getting an amazingly descriptive background to these characters.
And in typical Maas style she drops some major bombshells towards the end of the book and leaves us on a breath taking cliffhanger. Not only has a beautiful romance story developed but also a story of self healing, love and family. Fantastic plot and breathtaking character development.
