My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Jesus. Okay. Where do I begin?
I did not like this book, so much so I had to make a video where I ranted for four minutes.
I am that frustrated.
Now I did look forward to this book, from the last 100 page ending to ACOMAF I had looked forward to the dynamics of the Spring Court and how Feyre and Rhysand would keep the plan together. I felt this would be through most of the book, seeing how Feyre would lay and execute the ruin of Tamlin’s court.
But we weren’t. We skipped on swiftly after being here, only hearing a few snarky comments here and there.
Maas’s writing as always didn’t grip me, I find it clunky and repetitive – not to mention Feyre was downright self indulgent.
Characters that I enjoyed: Elain, Cassian, Lucien and Rhysand.
Characters that I wished would just drop off the edge of a cliff: Feyre. Feyre. Feyre. – THE HIGH LADY.
(Just in case you can’t remember that that was WHO she was during the whole of that book.)
Sex scenes were verging pornographic, and unnecessary- especially during harder scenes such as war. (The fuck were you thinking Maas?!?!!)
Overall I am glad this book has ended, nothing really happened in terms of tragic death and if it did it was reversed. I am just so annoyed – if she had stuck to her way in ACOTAR this series would be so much better. But hey, I think I am definitely in the minority with this one!
If you would like to see my frustrations here is my short, choppy video:
