I gave this amazing book 4 stars, which is great, but it might deserve more (I just can't help comparing it to the second book, A Court of Mist and Fury).
This book was very fast paced and interesting- grabbed me right from the beginning. I would have liked for Feyre to stay a little longer in the Spring court, just to see as more things play out and relationships tested, but I was happy with it nonetheless.
This was a pretty chunky book- 699 pages, but I found myself having to FORCE myself to put it down- I could've easily breezed through it in three days, but I really wanted to savour it, seeing as it was so good and only returning in 2018 (hysterical sobbing).
A normal book would usually have one or two plot twists, and a Sarah J. Maas book would usually have like ten. THIS BOOK. she really outdid herself with this book. there were SO MANY plot twist, but written brilliantly so that you didn't get lost or confused- but even if you were confused, it was good frustration- frustration that keeps you on your tows for the entirety of the book.
I did have two issues with this book (no spoilers)- the first one being the plot twists- I mean yes, each of them was jaw- dropping and amazing in its own right, but it did come to a point where it kind of felt overloaded with plot twist that were just too convenient- which brings me to the second issue, where I kind of felt that towards the end it got a little too Hollywood happy ending for me. (I'm being really vague because I don't want to spoil anything)
other than these little problems, this book was amazing and entrancing and everything a book should be- we got to know the side characters a little more, which I felt really added to the story and the world building. Sarah did a fantastic job at the end- just like with plot twists, she doesn't leave us with only one cliffhanger, but like a dozen- there are so many things that I'm just itching to see unravel- so many unresolved feelings, and lied, and conflicts and just wow.
Anyway, read it and let me know what YOU think!
