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.

I have to admit, I didn't love this book as much as I was told I would. I don't know if it's because I was just coming off my Empire of Storms action packed high, or if this book just wasn't for me. 

This novel was so slow, so so so slow. I was hoping for a lot more action, or something to help speed it up but it never really came until the scene near the end. 

That's not to say there weren't moments in the book where I was intrigued and anticipating what would happen next because there definitely were! The moments in which Feyre and Amren went to get the first piece of the book; and to see the struggle, as well as the assistance of the mermaids/sirens whatever they call them in the novel. It was a great scene. 

Of course the chemistry between Feyre and Rhys was amazing, and some moments had me smiling because of their blatant love for each other. But it wasn't enough to make me look forward to reading the book and seeing what develops between them next. 

Honestly, I was looking forward to the end of this book just so I could start something different and not get caught up in a reading slump I was feeling coming. 

I have to admit that the ending of this book does have me interested in the next novel to come (and the conclusion to this storyline I believe?). The ending is how I hoped most of the book went, the suspense, anticipation, thrill. It makes waiting the (couple) months for the release of the next novel hard, but manageable. 

I'm giving this book 3/5 just for the fact that it was a bit too slow for my liking, but the couple scenes that had that action and intrigue has me at an impasse towards my feelings. 

Do I recommend this book? Yes. Only because I have a feeling the conclusion is going to be amazing and to get there you just have to fight through this one! 

(who knows, maybe I just have horrible taste and this might be the best book ever...)

Book Rating: 3/5
Cover Rating: 4/5 (blue is not my favourite colour, but this cover is still pretty beautiful!)
