This book gives an amazing conclusion to this wonderful series. I adore Feyre and Rhys. Battle scenes were Epic. This book is thrilling and well-written. It did add a lot more complexity than I would have expected, yet its unique and lovely in its own way.
This review may contain spoilers from book 1 and 2. Don’t read this review if you have not read first two books in the series.
War from King Hybern in looming. Feyre and team are now aware of the source of his powers. All Prythian must fight in the war together. Feyre must deal with spring court. Feyre and Rhysand have to move through all courts looking for allies in the war. One must do everything they have in their power to save the world and for good to triumph over evil. Cause for that may differ but outcome is what matters.
This battle is also about unity and the book shows us how important this is. When there is a common goal at stake, then pride must be left outside when entering the war-tent. Everyone must work together because victory is in the numbers.
Every character has their own traits. All characters are bit more diverse than in book 2 andAuthor has juggled with so many unique personalities. We see different angles of Cassian, Azriel, Mor,Amren, Nesta,Elain, Tamlin and Lucien. I did love some of the new characters of other courts. I would definitely love to see more of Helion. The role played by Jurian, Miryam, Drakon, Weaver, Bone craver (my fav), the Suriel were just awesome.
Rhys and Feyre get to discover and unravel themselves. Their relationship is still solid and wholesome! I love how they respect each other and talk things out. Feyre has gone through several things, and how much she is grown, it is just incredible. Rhysand — My heart, my soul, my body, my everything. If I could have one book boyfriend, I would pick Rhysand every time. He shows us his vulnerable along with his soft side. Rhysand is his ultimate selfless self. His banter, humor, devotion, determination, astounding power, wicked-cunning mind nature were alluring.
The battle scene was epic. The last 150 pages of the book got me hooked. It was gripping. When the hope was lost, there would be hope, and when there was hope, it would be taken harshly out of our grip. With so many characters appearing, the action was astounding, the plot twists out of this world, the thrill spectacular.
I am keeping this review relatively short. it is not a perfect series, but I m ignoring the flaws and highlighting how much I enjoyed reading it. I honestly fell so hard for this series. I am obsessed with this series. This has it all, great characters, wonderful plot, secrets, betrayal, mystery, romance, redemptions, love and ACTION!!!!
I am certainly looking forward to more from this world and will soon jump into the Crescent City world!
