Hi! [intro stuffs]
Here’s some details about the book:
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.
With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

I am sooooo glad that I had this book on hand right after I finished A Court of Thorns and Roses (review | chat). I wasn’t sure how much I liked that one to begin with, but it was there staring at me so I picked it up. Please be warned that while this is spoiler free review of ACOMAF it may contain a few spoilers for ACOTAR so read on if you wish!
This picks up soon after Feyre defeats Amarantha Under the Mountain, and Tamlin and Feyre are pretty happy. However Feyre is fighting her own demons and there seems to be a sort of rift between the couple that is insurmountable through talking. It was interesting to see Feyre in such a vulnerable and delicate state. I feel as if she were the most vulnerable when she came home from Under the Mountain. It doesn’t matter that now she’s High Fae because she’s witnessed so many horrible things that she’s just trying to cope at this point. I like the way her character develops over the book and between the two books.
At the end of A Court of Thorns and Roses I was pretty happy with the way things ended. I thought it should have stayed that way, but I’m glad the series was continued. I had a change of heart about Tamlin. I want you guys to know I loved Tam in the first book! As this one progressed I couldn’t help but start to hate him. I know I’m supposed to, but I did. (I know why people are so ga-ga over Rhysand now!) I hate how Tam makes Feyre feel so isolated and alone, and I love her for (trying to) standing up for herself.
Overall the plot is fast-paced for the most part. (I may or may not have stayed up until 3 in the morning reading this…)We learn a lot more about what went on Under the Mountain, and the horrors about what The Night Court sacrificed during that time. I like how everything came full-circle and finally made sense. I was totally sucked in, especially when I got to part 2.
The new characters introduced are awesome. I love the Night Court gang, and I don’t think I could be happier with such amazing female characters. Mor, Rhysand’s cousin, and Amren, Rhy’s lieutenant, are great characters. I love how well developed they are and how they befriend Feyre.
THE ENDING THOUGH!! *deep breathing* AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I have so many feels about the ending (and the book in general), so it’s hard for me to put them into words. I won’t say much more about the ending, but there’s a HUGE plot twist that I don’t think anyone saw coming, but I cannot wait for the third book to come out. I need a title, a cover, a synopsis – anything!!
Okay that’s all I’ll say about the book (for now). Have you read these books? What did you think?
