Feyre is immortal.

After rescuing her lover Tamlin from a wicked Faerie Queen, she returns to the Spring Court possessing the powers of the High Fae. But Feyre cannot forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people – nor the bargain she made with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court.

As Feyre is drawn ever deeper into Rhysand’s dark web of politics and passion, war is looming and en evil far greater than any queen threatens to destroy everything Feyre has fought for. She must confront her past, embrace her gifts and decide her fate.

She must surrender her heart to heal a world torn in two.


This is probably one of the greatest books I have ever read. It is definitely being added to my list of all time favourite books.

I love the first book and I never knew it was possible to love the second book even more. It just brought the storyline to a whole new level and I cannot believe how incredible it was. It was phenomenal – and any other word synonymous with phenomenal (i.e. extraordinary, remarkable, outstanding etc, etc!!).

There is so much development in this book, both with characters and the world in which we’re learning about. Feyre is getting stronger as a heroine and I love seeing how its unfolding. And RHYSAND, for the love of God, RHYSAND! Need I say more?

I seriously love Maas’ way of writing. She entices you. You never want to put the book down. You want to yell and scream. You want to cry and laugh. She does a fantastic job of building on these wonderful characters that you just never, ever want to stop reading about them.

I highly, highly, HIGHLY, recommend this book series for anyone who is interested in fantasy and romance. But also for anyone who is looking for an absolutely incredible and enticing read that leaves you wanting more and more!

Rating: ★★★★★ (Seriously should be more like a bajillion stars …)

Favourite Quotes:

About the Author:
