"Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's manoeuvrings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit - and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords - and hunt for allies in unexpected places."


After an insanely exciting ending in A Court of Mist and Fury I couldn't wait to get started on this book. The start wasn't as exciting as I'd hoped and the pace was a lot slower than the previous book but I still enjoyed each event as it happened.

There was a feeling of anticipation running through this book, I was waiting for something big to happen and at the same time trying to piece together all the snippets of information that filled in any gaps from the first two books.

The characters were once again strong, some were almost unrecognisable from the way they were previously but not in a bad way - the author's character development was outstanding! 

A life changing war arrived and from that moment onwards it was tense and unpredictable, what was going to happen to these characters and the world as they knew it?

For me this wasn't as addictive as the first two books but it was still a fabulous read and I'm looking forward to more.
