Goodreads Synopsis:

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.


Feyre is now one of the High Fae, living with her love, Tamlin. She lives happily with him in the Spring Court, while her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the Night Court, has been forgotten. Feyre is exploring her new Fae gifts, while staying safe under the watchful eye of Tamlin and his people, until Rhysand decides to claim his end of the bargain at the worst possible time. Then, Feyre begins to realize that her new world wasn’t what she expected.

This is a great sequel. There were so many twists, that kept me excited to read this long story. The final chapters were so intense and unpredictable. There was some beautiful symmetry between the beginning and end. I knew a couple of spoilers for the book, but for the most part, it was a surprise.

The only thing that I think should be changed with this book is it’s classification as young adult. There were some steamy romance scenes that I think were too mature for a teen reader. This book should be classified as New Adult, which is between Young Adult and Adult. However, this book is usually placed in the YA category where New Adult isn’t available. This series is for an older YA or adult reader.

I loved this sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses! I’m excited to read the next one!
