“Tell me what you see.”“A world divided in two.”
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.

Okay, so if I could give this a million stars, I would. I absolutely freaking LOVED this book. This is hands down my favorite book to date. I definitely think that the ACOTAR series is better than the ToG series. Don’t get me wrong, I love ToG; but I love ACOTAR more. And even though I give this a million stars, there are some things that I just have to get off my chest…
Now, in the first book I was totally Team Tamlin for Feyre and Team Rhysand for ME. In the second book, I am Team Rhysand for EVERYONE. Now, I will admit that at first I was pissed that Sarah J. Maas decided to do another huge love interest shift like she did in the ToG series. In fact, I’m still a little peeved that she vilifies the first love interest to make her fans love the new ship. But I feel it is more justified in ACOMAF than it was in ToG (even though I am a Rowan fan, I still feel like Chaol got the complete shit end of the stick). I just don’t want Sarah J. Maas to do this in every series she writes. And this is not saying that I don’t love the new ships, because believe me I do. It’s just a little irksome on how the new ships happen or take place.
But other than that, ACOMAF, in my eyes, is the best book Sarah J. Maas has written so far! Feyre learns and trains with her new powers in this book and for the third and final book, I am expecting her to kick some awesome ass and be the badass that she is meant to be. I honestly cannot wait until ACOTAR #3 is here!!!
I’m still trying to get all my thoughts together on this, but I seriously loved this book so much that it’s hard to reel them all in. If you haven’t read this series yet, please do so. The first book pales in comparison to this sequel, but I promise you, it is well worth it!!!
