Summary:

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit-and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places. 

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.  (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)

Review:

In this finale to the series, we finally get to see how things work out after the fallout from trying to steal the cauldron at the end of the last book.  It starts with Feyre in Tamlin’s court, but she’s quickly reunited with Rhys. I was worried that may be something drawn out, but the book starts out quickly.

The thing that I love about Maas’ books are that they’re unpredictable.  This one felt like there was so much going on that occasionally it was difficult to keep up.  We have a lot of new characters and a lot of new backgrounds to try to understand.  That isn’t a negative per say, but it does mean that you have to be really paying attention as changes come from every angle.

There were some absolutely fantastic scenes.  I loved seeing the negotiations among the different courts and I hope that we’ll be able to see more of those characters in future books.  It’s difficult to say much about the ending without revealing spoilers, but needless to say, I wasn’t disappointed.  I’d highly recommend this one to anyone who is a fan of the series, but the second book is still my favorite.

Warning: Contains repeated violence and sexual content.

Rating: 5 stars!
