After reading ACOTAR, I was unable to read anything but the next book in the series. I wanted to know what is awaiting for Feyre in the coming future, what would be the next step of Rhys after having the bargain between him and Feyre. So, these all question among many other. I enter into the world of Prythein once again to find the answers. I would warn people to read ACOTAR before reading this review because there would be some spoilers from the previous book.
The story begins from where it left. After killing Amarantha, the aftermaths are still lingering in the form of nightmares that made Feyre puke whole nights long. She was getting weaker and weaker with every day passing, but unfortunately she had none to talk about it as Tamlin is struggling the same. There is a deep silence between the two who thrive hard to be together and now let with nothing but void. Tamlin’s behavior is what making situation worst. He didn’t allow Feyre to do anything besides sitting home and enjoy herself. Being Feyre, this is not she is born for! And now after being a Fae, one of their kind, the curiosity is now at a peak. There comes wedding that makes thing worst as Feyre is nowhere near ready to get married after all she suffered and there devils come without a warning just before the wedding, Rhysand. For the sake of bargain, Feyre had no choice but to go with him.
There Feyre explores about what it is being at Night Court. The first task assigned by Rhysand to Feyre is to learn reading and writing… The lessons are pathetic (for Feyre) as she has to keep writing sentences like Rhysand is the male every female ever dreamed of. Rhysand is the most handsome high lord. And with no option left, Feyre did it.
Each visit back to Spring Court is getting worst, and the dead end came when Tamlin locked Feyre in the home. Mor, Rhysand’s cousin took her from there and a new story begins as Feyre wants to learn to unleash her powers and stay at Night Court.
The story then shows the power Feyre is to unleash, the truth that lies underneath. The wicked Rhysand, High lord of Night Court, has kept a lot of secrets from Feyre that would be exposed one by one as the book progress. There are threats, there are risks, but there is family, there are friends who are to be saved and cherished.
I love the book to the core! The building relationship between Rhys and Feyre is what was expected as she abandoned Spring Court. I got to know more about Rhys in the book that I utterly loved and devoured because yes, Rhysand is the most handsome High Lord of history! My most favorite scene from the book is a spoiler so read further at your own risk. I loved when Feyre got to know that Rhys is her mate, the reaction and how she got herself locked in the cottage and the whole thing to digest of Rhys being her mate. I loved how Rhys sent her small notes that disappear. The chuckles and laughter she could listen through the bond. The way Feyre sooth Rhys when he had a nightmare about Amarantha. They share their happiness, they share their pain, and they share their minds and soul. A bond so strong that no matter what can never be broken.
