Note: This post reviews the third book of the A Court of Thorns and Roses Series. You may like to read the first two books in the series, A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury, before reading this review.
Additional Note: I would like to emphasize that this series is written more toward the New Adult genre than the Young Adult genre. Because the NA genre focuses on protagonists in the 18-30 age range, the content, especially the sexual content and the language, is much more mature than the average YA novel.
Feyre is back in the hands of Tamlin. In his rage and desperation, Tamlin made a deal with the King in exchange for Feyre, as if she were a possession he was trying to get back. Feyre plays the part of the submissive female at Tamlin’s side, all the while working as a spy. She cannot stomach how he stooped so low as to work with the King of Hybern (previous book), and then involved her sisters, Nesta and Elain.
Feyre returns to the Night Court with Rhys, where they prepare for war – Hybern is coming to Prythian. Feyre continues to train with Cassian, and to learn to fly with Azriel, but her sisters refuse to join in. They hate what has been done to them, hate that they are now Fae. A resistant romance develops between Cassian and Nesta (in between their verbal sparring) as well as a could-be romance between Elain and Lucien. The Archeron sisters become more important than ever in the war against Hybern.
I love this series as a whole. Sarah J. Maas is a captivating writer, despite her love scenes feeling a bit on the redundant side.
