I loved this book! Often, I read a book and come out with at least one complaint, one thing the author could have done better. But this book is so close to perfect...Definitely worth any and all the hype you've read/heard about it.

I don't, as a rule, reread books. Once I had finished this one, I had the urge to turn it around and start reading it from the beginning. I didn't think I could like this any more than the first book, A Court Of Thorns and Roses. By the end of ACOTAR, I couldn't imagine anyone other than Tamlin with Feyre. I was completely wrong on both counts. The progression of the romance between Feyre and Rhysand was natural and completely believable, and every action of his from the first novel was explained. We were introduced to other Courts in this novel, and got to know the rest of Rhys' Night Court. Feyre trained and healed in her new home, so when she actually used her powers at the end it didn't feel forced or unnatural. Maas was able to turn the story on its head- you started the novel hating Rhysand, and at the end, you were head over heels in love with him. That is masterful storytelling. Yes, this story is rife with conflict, but amidst it, there are feel good emotions- camaraderie, friendship, loyalty, and of course, love. I finished this one and immediately went out and bought the next- which I'll be starting right away. What a beautiful, exquisitely done story, well deserving of all the hype.

An interesting twist between the first novel and this one certainly improves the series. A thoroughly interesting and imaginative world and characters. A few annoying parts where characters make ridiculous decisions that have predictable outcomes but for the most part the story kept me wanting more. But oh my! it has some very steamy parts and right from the get go. This is not a novel for the prude! I must say, the author is quite good at writing these parts as well. A bit over the top romanticized, I mean, its always absolutely earth shaking perfect but this is a fantasy novel after all.

By turns heartbreaking, thrilling, horrifying, and beautiful, this is the story of once-human Feyre's beginning her new life as a high fae and discovering who she is in the wake of the events of the first book. I loved the worldbuilding, and the even greater depth that was brought to both the world and the characters from the first book (and some fantastically intriguing new characters as well). I was disappointed that certain characters I loved in the first book had to be somewhat demonized in this second, in order to allow new developments--but I must also admit that it was masterfully done.

This was LEAPS AND BOUNDS better than the first one. SO good. The world-building was amazing, so action-packed, yet tender and sweet as well. I'm not sure I've loved a main character more than I love Rhysand. So happy I waited to read this series until the next one in the series comes out THIS WEEK!

How can a sequel be better than the first book?! Read this book to find out!

There were so many feels in this book. It was intense, heart-breaking, intriguing, relatable, and inspiring. While I knew some of what was going to happen, how it happened was a whole other story. Maas's world-building abilities are extensive and wonderful -- I loved how much more I learned in this book. I also found Feyre more relatable in this book, how she struggled, survived, and overcame. But how she also acknowledged her ability to love while still healing. I believe that was one of the most poignant parts of the book.

My only critique of this book was its length. I understand the need to draw out the storyline, to expand on the world. However, I believe some of the side adventures they went on were unnecessary. I also struggled with how they were suddenly presented (though I appreciated that this was consistant throughout the book): "Oh we have this thing that is connected to the main thing but only if we go on this dangerous journey to get another thing first." It had a lot of moving parts -- which again, I appreciate the details and how she pulled them together -- but it was still a lot and a struggle to get through at parts. I felt like I was tumbling over side adventures to get back to the main plot and to the end.

Which, while we are on the subject of that ending, holy crap that ending! Such twists and turns and tears. I cried for about 20 pages straight. It was gut wrenching and surprising but also rewarding in the end. Needless to say, I have already preordered book three.

This book is the most AMAZING, most BEAUTIFUL, and most TRAGIC book ever! Although I haven't even STARTED reading it I ALREADY knew that Feyre's true mate was Rhysand just by looking at the COVER, she's dressed in a BLACK dress that looks like its made out of FEATHERS. IF NO ONE REALIZED THIS YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU MISSED. My heart BROKE literally when I realized Tamlin would actually be the evil one. Its so ironic that he has those good features but has a black heart and Rhysand has the evil looking features but his heart is GOLD!

Not consort, not wife. Feyre is High Lady of the Night Court. My equal in every way; she would wear my crown, sit on a throne beside mine. Never sidelined, never designated to breeding and parties and child rearing. My queen.

I would not, could not be broken. Tamed.

I fell in love with you, smartass, because you were one of us—because you weren’t afraid of me, and you decided to end your spectacular victory by throwing that piece of bone at Amarantha like a javelin. I felt Cassian’s spirit beside me in that moment, and could have sworn I heard him say, ‘If you don’t marry her, you stupid prick, I will.

Feyre survived Under the Mountain. But at a steep cost. Now she's trying to cope and learn about what happened to her. All while preparing for her upcoming marriage to Tamlin.

But she also hasn't forgotten the bargain she made with Rhysand. When he comes to collect on that bargain, Feyre starts to realize that a greater evil is looming on the horizon. However, even if she's the only one who can stop it, she can't do it if she can't learn to harness her gifts, find a way to heal her soul (and her heart) and decide which path she wants to take.
