Rating: 5 Stars (is anyone surprised?)
Feyre, Rhysand and the rest of the Night Court are on full alert, knowing that Hybern is about to take down the wall separating faerie from human realms. In no uncertain terms, they know this will being war. The Night Court sets out to find a way to stop Hybern from destroying the treaty and killing the humans on the other side of the wall. The Court knows their only chance at stopping Hybern is to gather as many allies as possible, hoping that the other Courts will join their forces.
I don’t even know if a review is necessary. I’m just going to repeat what my thoughts were for both A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury – which is that this series is absolutely brilliant. It had my heart melting at some points and it made me literally sob hysterically at other points. This book, these characters – they’re all beautiful. What I really admire with Maas is that, despite the fact that she has a larger amount of what we might consider “main characters” (Rhys, Feyre, Cassian, Azriel, Mor, Amren, Nesta, and Elaine – 8) and even more secondary characters (all of the High Lords and their people) she somehow still breathes life into each and every one. None of them fall flat because their storyline isn’t as important or interesting. Each has a distinctive personality and characteristics that don’t dull at any point; whether they’re in the thick of the plot or not. It’s not difficult to keep track of any of her characters because they’re all so fleshed out. It really is amazing writing and fantastic plot. Maas has my vote any day … now I’m off to finish A Court of Frost and Starlight because I can’t stop myself!
