Why I chose this

I think it’s fair to say I needed to see how this one ends. Then I found out there will be more.

What it's about

23766634Feyre 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.

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all. – Goodreads.com

What it's about

Okay, So I didn’t like this one as much as the other two. Don’t get me wrong I still enjoyed it but it just seemed to go on forever before actually getting anywhere. I’ aware that wars need a fair bit of planning but this could have been cut down a little and still made sense in my opinion.

I did feel sorry for Elain. She was thrust into this life away from her Fae hating fiance and yes I do believe she is allowed to mourn her loss. She didn’t seem to play a pivotal role for the majority of the book it was kinda like I think we need to mention Elain now we’ve not done it for a little bit and she is Feyre’s sister. With Nesta she seemed to come across as a bit liberated once she got used to the fact that she was Fae but I do believe Cassian helped her in more ways that it seemed in the book (i don’t mean in a wink wink sort of way.

Rhys.Poor poor Rhys. First off:

I know you were doing what you were doing for the greater good and being completely selfless but you almost broke my heart. I have a heart made of stone so it’s nice to know it can be warmed up. Rhys has definitely grown on me throughout the series and I think he might be one of the reasons that men won’t live up to my expectations. Sorry guys.

Amren completely shocked me with her I don’t want to say deception but I can’t think of what else you’d call it. I should have expected something from her as it does seem like they were building her up for something but I never expected what she did to Feyre.

Lucien also seemed to completely disappear in the middle of the book and was only mentioned once until the end where he turned back up.

As I said I did enjoy the book but I much preferred the other two in the series. I’m looking forward to getting a Court of Frost and Starlight which comes out a month tomorrow. Not that I’m counting 😜.
