Overview

The # 1 New York Times bestselling sequel to Sarah J. Maas' spellbinding A Court of Thorns and Roses.

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.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

Maas broadens the world she created in her bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses with a new enemy that threatens both the seven Fae Courts and the mortal world her heroine left behind. After having escaped the sadistic Amarantha, Feyre’s return to the Spring Court isn’t the happily-ever-after she imagined. Feyre no longer knows who she is or where she belongs, and she is grappling with her body’s strange new powers after the seven High Lords resurrected her as a Fae. She and her lover, Tamlin, are wracked with nightmares from their time “Under the Mountain,” and Tamlin’s concern for Feyre’s safety has become stifling. Worse, she’s still beholden to the Night Court, and Rhysand, its High Lord, calls in their bargain at the most inconvenient time. Fans may be frustrated by Feyre’s shifting romantic allegiances, but Maas lets the relationship dynamics change organically, and her talent for creating chemistry between her characters (including some fiery sexual encounters) is as strong as ever. Maas gives Feyre the space to regain her agency and prove herself the equal of any High Lord, resulting in an immersive, satisfying read. Ages 14–up.

From the Publisher

"The world is exquisitely crafted, the large cast of secondary characters fleshed out, the action intense, and the twist ending surprising, heartrending, and, as always, sure to guarantee readers’ return . . .

"The erotically charged lead-up to the romantic storyline's climaxes (pun intended) adds stakes to the cliffhanger. Hits the spot for fans of dark, lush, sexy fantasy." - Kirkus Reviews

Gr 10 Up—Maas continues to uphold her reputation for building alluring and breathtaking worlds and creating characters who feel so real they could walk off the pages of the book. In this volume, which picks up where A Court of Thorns and Roses left off, Feyre is engaged to Tamlin, the High Lord of the Spring Court, whose kingdom she went to great lengths to save under the mountain. The Spring Court is grateful for the sacrifices she made, but Tamlin is all too happy to lock Feyre up in his castle and protect her from the many dangers of his world. Struggling with her own depression, Feyre sets her needs aside to make Tamlin happy, but when his overbearing tendencies go too far, Feyre nearly breaks. She is rescued by Rhysand, the feared High Lord of the Night Court, with whom she struck a deal and to whom she has been bonded ever since in ways she can't explain. He shows her a new life and, with the assistance of his Fae friends, helps Feyre learn to control her newfound powers and tap into the strength she forgot she had, which may just be the key to saving Prythian from the evil King of Hybern. The sensuous romance that develops between Feyre and Rhysand will take readers on a whirlwind so fun and addicting they won't be able to put it down until the very end. Peppered with titillating scenes, the love story evolves in ways that may frustrate some readers, but remains true to real life. VERDICT A must-have where the author's previous works are popular.—Candyce Pruitt-Goddard, Sno-Isle Libraries, Marysville, WA

After the events of A Court of Thorns and Roses (2015), Feyre struggles to pull herself back together while imminent threats loom. In the months after defeating Amarantha and escaping hellish captivity Under the Mountain, Feyre hasn't been doing well. She's drowning in guilt over the prices she paid and unable to escape the feeling that she's trapped. Tamlin is perhaps coping even worse—he's consumed by the fear of failing to protect her and in denial. While their physical relationship is mutually pleasurable—and graphically hot—their happily-ever-after fairy-tale wedding is further derailed by Rhysand, the High Lord of the dreaded Night Court, who demands that Feyre fulfill their bargain by coming with him (one week a month). Rhys believes war is coming, and he needs Feyre for his dangerous scheme to win it. As Feyre travels between courts and explores the consequences of her resurrection, she learns more about Prythian, its history, and peoples (including its darkest sides: misogynistic cultures and tensions between High Fae and lesser faeries). Occasionally the characters fall too neatly into wholly good or completely bad boxes, which at its least subtle comes across as manipulative of readers, but the large cast provides relief from Feyre's deep psychological wounds. The erotically charged lead-up to the romantic storyline's climaxes (pun intended) adds stakes to the cliffhanger. Hits the spot for fans of dark, lush, sexy fantasy. (Fantasy. 14 & up)

This book messed with my emotions in the best and worst ways possible. It was impossible to get any sleep without finishing the book first. Now, what with all the surprise, suspense, laughter, romance, and frustration I am left very emotionally drained. I want the next book NOW, and it hasnt even been two days since this one has been out. Waiting for the third will be torture.

I have loved all of Maas' work. I will admit that first book in this series was not my favorite but this book was beautifully written. I was honestly surprised at how things happened for Feyre and friends and am saddened that I have to wait so long for the next installment since I finished this one within hours! You will never be bored when reading a novel written by Maas.

I thought my head was going to explode at the sheer brilliance of Sarah J. Maas! I love all of her books and this one is no exception. Never would I have expected any of the twists and turns that came when I started this book last night. I don't know how I'm going handle the wait for the next book without going crazy!!

I loved this book. Everything about it was so intricately written, from facial expressions to outfits to any one of Feyre's attempts not to smile at Rhysand. I sped through this book, I loved it so much. I feel deeply for these characters and I am HIGHLY ANTICIPATING the 3rd book. CAN NOT WAIT <3

I have no complaints. I love this book. It's quite possibly my favorite. Sarah J. Maas 's writing is so eloquent and captivating her story comes to life. Though most people have a problem with the sexual content, claiming there's a LOT of sex scenes. It only takes up 4% of the book or more specifically 27 pages. And it's true those scenes are inappropriate for really young readers but not for young adults. Sex is a reality and Sarah J. Maas doesn't push it to the side like other Authors and I respect her for that. Highly recommended this book.

I was so worried to read the second one because I was so afraid it wouldn't live up to the bar the first one set!! But it SMASHED it!! I literally could not put it down! I could barely sleep at night because I couldn't wait to get up the next morning and read more! I was so torn because I wanted to go slow to savor it. I never wanted it to end!! It was tooooo good!! I didn't have the patience and I needed to lap it up!! After finishing it, I almost started it all over again, but instead decided to give her Throne of Glass series a try. So far it hasnt impressed me as much as this series, but I've decided to give it a chance!! Read this book!! You will not regret it i promise!!
