I really enjoyed this. I haven’t read Maas’ ToG series yet but this was a good taste of her writing. I had high expectations for this book because I had heard so many amazing reviews, but for me, it wasn’t so mindblowing as everyone else. I enjoyed it at first with the killing of the fairy and the beast that came for Feyre and brought her to Prythian. I liked Lucien’s character more than Tamlin’s. I wasn’t a fan of the romance between Feyre and Tamlin, yes I can see the appeal but it just didn’t work for me. When she met Rhys at the Fire Night although we didn’t know at the time it was him, I got the feeling that the man that saved her might be a potential future ‘boyfriend’. But when we officially met him, all the good that happened disappear he was so evil. But of course, Sarah J.Maas made us second guess ourselves. When Feyre was participating in the trials, he helped her and he was even sweet. And when she made the deal that one week a year she would go to stay in the Night Court with Rhysand that left Tamlin feeling weird and searching for a way out but Feyre had become a sort of friends with Rhys, so she didn’t mind that much. I ship Rhys and Feyre more than her with Tamlin. I can’t wait for the second book every review I have read says it’s the best book in the series. I hope there is a romance with Rhys and Feyre.
My rating is 3.5/5 stars.
