Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve. Yet even the festive atmosphere can’t keep the shadows of the past from looming.

Even though not a lot happened in this novella, I am still so happy to have read it so soon after the release date. I LOVED reading about the characters again and seeing through different perspectives.

The best part of this was the sneak peek of the next book in the series lol. Not that the rest was bad, obviously, but I’m so excited to see Nesta and Cassian’s relationship actually turn into something because I’m rooting for that so hard. I’m predicting that Nesta will become super badass because she realizes how she needs to get revenge on the human queens once and for all, and after she figures that out there won’t be any way to stop her. I love that Cassian is so taken with her, but I really want to find out what his present to her was that he threw into the river. Temper, Cassian.

I find it quite annoying when people go on and on about how Sarah J. Maas isn’t portraying overly strong feminist characters. Personally, I think you can be a feminist but still want to cook, clean, shop, and design a new house. I don’t understand how that makes you less of a feminist, but that’s just me.

I’m anxious to see what Mor does about that estate situation with the scary thing in the woods because I would have freaked the freak out. I think it’s cool that she has her own space but I wish she wouldn’t keep it a complete secret from everyone else because I think it’s going to come out and people’s feelings are going to get hurt bla bla bla.

I can’t wait for the next in the series!

I don’t understand how people didn’t like this book. After I write this review I’m going to watch some book review videos on YouTube, because I loved this book!

This was a great continuation of the Court of Thorns and Roses series, and I honestly do not understand why people hated this book so much! Everything wrapped up perfectly and all the characters grew so much.

This beginning of this book follows Feyre in the Spring Court deceiving Tamlin and everyone else in order to get the information she needs to return to the Night Court. First off, that’s such a badass way to start a book. Loved the deception even if it was sad at times. Then she and the rest of the Night Court family have to figure out what to do with the Cauldron situation and how to defeat Hybern and fix literally everything that everyone had messed up…

But this was so good. I do admit, it was VERY slow in the middle. Part two was so slow, but it’s just one of those books you have to get into the groove of reading larger sections at one time and you’re A OK. That being said, I’m all here for the slow burn books. I love when you have to wait to figure everything out. It builds suspense and makes you want to finish it even more. This book did take me quite awhile to read, but I think it’s because I started it and then got distracted because I was home for winter break still and then I took a trip to visit my aunt, uncle, five-year-old cousin, and two newborn twin girls, but I thoroughly enjoyed this nonetheless.

I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book because this was originally supposed to be a trilogy, I think. I need to know what happens with Nesta and Cassian, because their mating bond is going to snap into place any time and everyone knows it. Elain and Lucien are going to have their mating bond situation all figured out and they’re going to be helplessly in love cause AWW.

Also, Amren. I was pissed off when I found out that she was lying to Feyre, but then it all worked out so I’m cool with that. Rhys though.

Oh. My. Gosh. I thought he was actually going to stay dead forever and when Feyre found out that he also made a bargain with a monster I was so shooketh. Because she did the same thing and didn’t tell him and he did the same thing to her because they loved each other so much that they just didn’t want one another to be mad or sad or worried. And Feyre went and found the mirror for the Bone Carver. Excuse me. Cool and so badass.

One of my favorite parts from this book was the whole scene where Feyre goes and summons the Suriel and then it also brings Ianthe and her cronies. SHOOK. I was shook. I loved that Feyre stayed with the Suriel and also led Ianthe and those people to their death, but not before Rhys figured out how to get the Weaver. Man oh man.

I do have to admit that A Court of Mist and Fury was my favorite of the series, but I was not disappointed by the ending of this book at all :)

Wow.

I don’t even know how to explain my love of this book other than rambling and going on tangents, so here we go!

This is the second book in the Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas, and everyone said these books were absolutely amazing, and I 100% agree. This book follows Feyre in the Night Court with Rhysand after she gets away from Tamlin and the Spring Court after what happens in A Court of Thorns and Roses.

If you haven’t read the first book you should refrain from continuing on reading this post because there will be hella spoilers coming up. If you haven’t read this book, same goes for you too.

Holy shit. Okay Rhysand and Feyre are the best couple of all time because they understand each other and love each other so much it’s painful sometimes. I love that Rhysand is so soft and kind while keeping up this hard-ass face because he has to protect his people of Velaris. I love that he loves her so much, and I love all of the banter and conversations they have.

The sexy times in this book had me shooketh. Ummmmmm. Yeah. So I don’t know how to explain this without getting too graphic, but the cabin scenes. Oh my lord. I literally had to stop reading when I had about 100 pages left because I was too overwhelmed by the sex scenes. This was much more sexual than the first book, but I think it was done in a way that wasn’t too much. There were lots of details that younger people should NOT be reading, but let me tell you. I love Rhysand and Feyre together.

I never thought I could be on board with enjoying reading about the politics of a world, but there was so much of it throughout this book. I didn’t even realize how much I enjoyed the political intrigue in books until this one. I love that all the characters have to be so careful with everything they say and manipulate other High Fae in order to get what they want. I love that they’re working for the greater good of Prythian and I’m living for it.

I love Mor, Cassian, and Azriel and cannot wait until the next books to find out what their deal is. I want Mor and Azriel to be together forever, and I think that Cassian and Nesta are going to be a thing. Oh yeah. I’m here for all of these romances because at some points of this book you could literally cut the sexual tension with a butter knife.

So much happened in this book I can’t even.

The ending. I was so shaken up by what happened. So Mor, Cassian, Azriel, and Feyre just decide to go and attack this Cauldron thing. Okay, cool, but you do realize this is what apparently created this world. Right. Okay so they go to the castle in Hybern in order to destroy this so then everything can be happy and great, and of course Tamlin shows up.

Tangent. I literally almost punched myself in the face for while thinking about how I shipped Feyre and Tamlin at the beginning of this series. He locked her up in her own home just to “keep her safe.” Okay well she was going insane because she couldn’t use her powers that she had just been gifted from everyone. Helloooooo is that not concerning.

Anyway, Tamlin and Lucien are there working with the evil King of Hybern. Why did it surprise me? I knew they were going to come up again sometimes. They made this deal with the King that as long as Tamlin got Feyre back from Rhysand everything would be great for everyone, but wait. Tamlin sold out the entire land of Prythian in order to get this girl that doesn’t love him.

Then Nesta and Elain show up and then Tamlin feels bad. *anger* The King shoves them into the Cauldron and makes them into High Fae, then Lucien realizes that Elain is his mate. OF COURSE SHE IS. I have faith for Lucien because I don’t think he’s an awful guy, so I can be on board for that relationship. But Lucien has to break away from Tamlin in order for that to happen, so I think in the next book Lucien and Feyre are going to work together to get rid of Tamlin.

Another thing, Feyre had to pretend that she was terrified of Rhysand and all of her friends in order to save the entirety of the fae realm. I get that it’s the right thing to do, but she went with Tamlin. The emotions that I felt when the bond was being broken between Rhysand and Feyre actually hurt my heart. I felt like I was being ripped up just like them. And Rhysand played along. I’m sure that they talked about something like that happening, but oh my lord I just want them to be happy. So Rhysand is all broken up and sad and when he gets back to Velaris he explains that Feyre is going to destroy Tamlin from the inside out. So she’s going to be the spy and then I was fine. I NEED the next book.

Lucien is onto what Feyre is doing, but he can’t say anything because he’s already obsessed with Elain. Ugh so much drama. But I love the drama. I think I’m going to throw a fit if Feyre and Tamlin have sex in the next book because I think that will break Rhysand more than she thinks it will.

Okay. So that’s that. I need to read the next book now, but I also think that I need to take a break for a hot second so then I don’t get burnt out with the books. I LOVE THIS SERIES!
