By Sarah J. Maas
This is the second book in Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses series and follows Feyre as she struggles in the aftermath of Amarantha’s trials. She’s having trouble dealing with the decisions she’s made in order to survive and save Tamlin’s people from slaughter. Feyre is also dealing with the repercussions of her bargain with Rhysand, the feared ruler of the Night Court. But going with him is a chance to get away from her oppressive surroundings at the Spring Court, which now feels more like a prison. Now the entirety of Prythian is in danger from an even more formidable foe, one that could shatter not only the realm of the Fae, but the human world as well. Feyre will have to fight for her people again, with the aid of some new allies and some new powers, if they hope to survive.
This book exceeded and surpassed my expectations of a sequel! The character development in this book is incredible. Feyre and some of the other main characters are dealing with PTSD from the traumatic events that took place in the previous book. Feyre has also changed drastically since her transformation and has to think about who she is now versus who she was before and also what she wants for herself instead of what she does for others. Feyre’s journey is very empowering and I enjoyed reading about her development from the first book to this one. Rhysand and his friends at the Night Court are definitely squad goals and I really loved the interaction between the different characters. Maas’s imagery and detail of the scenery throughout this book is, again, breathtaking. You’ll want to fly to the Night Court ASAP. I literally could not put this book down!
