“No one was my master – but I might be master of everything, if I wished. If I dared.”
“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.” – Goodreads

Thoughts About The Book
There aren’t words in the English language yet to fully describe how I felt after finishing ACOMAF. Sarah J. Maas takes us through a whirlwind of emotions by the end of the book, and once it’s over, your world will feel forever changed. Well, that statement is about as close as I can get to describing my emotions after reading this book, but let’s take a little more in detail about what Maas does in this second installment that is so great. I mean, I loved, loved, ACOTAR (the first book in the series), but this second book is better. Yes, better. How?? I didn’t even know it was possible to get better than that!
Alright readers, if you haven’t yet read ACOTAR, this is the time where you stop. Go to my ACOTAR Review. Buy a copy. Read said copy. Then come back here and enjoy as there will most definitely be spoilers to the first book in this review (don’t worry to readers that have read ACOTAR, this review doesn’t contain spoilers for ACOMAF).
After Fayre breaks the spell in ACOTAR, she seems to finally get her happily ever after – I mean they all do – right? Well not quite. ACOMAF picks up with Fayre and Tamlin coming home and attempting to start their “happily ever after” together. BUT there is still a lot of clean-up from Amaranthia’s rein over Prythian. Not only in the physical sense, but there are emotional mountains that need to be broken after what everyone endured. Fayre struggles to cope with what she was fated to do to break the spell and struggles to adjust to her new surroundings. AND you can’t forget about Rhysand’s bargain with her from the trials. One week a month with the powerful and terrifying High Lord of the Night Court??
Maas does a fantastic job transitioning into ACOMAF as we watch Fayre decide if she wants to break or grow. My all-time favorite is the Night Court. OMG – The. Night. Court. (yes, I had to do that for emphasis) How can you not get entranced by the terror and majestic features of the Night Court? Rhysand and his inner circle create that ultimate dynamic we were possibly missing from ACOTAR. Okay, Okay. I am getting into dangerous territory of spoilers so I better stop myself now. BUT I will say that the ending is amazing. Simply, utterly, amazing and my life will not be completed until I get my hands on the 3rd book (yes, there will be a 3rd based on how ACOMAF ends –*screaming and jumping for joy* right?!). Don’t wait. Seriously, do not wait and go pick up your copy and read it now (you can find a purchase link in the book info below– or just use this one 😉 ).
Based on my extremely excited review above, this is a must read!
