I LOVED this book! Just like I LOVED ACOTAR ❤ So, as many of you have noticed, some copies of ACOMAF were released into the wild early. I was lucky enough to receive one of those copies, and can finally share my thoughts with you! (I’ll try to avoid as many spoilers as possible.)
ACOMAF picks up a short time after the final events in book 1. We see where Feyre and Tamlin stand after the Spring Court is restored and experience the aftermath of Feyre’s death and rebirth. I can’t really say much else about the plot because I truly don’t want to spoil anything. The last thing I want to point out is that Rhysand does make good on his deal to take Feyre to the Night Court for 1 week every month, which allows us to discover more about him and his motivations.
My absolute favorite part was the fact that Feyre explores her relationships internally and makes connections about why some things make sense and how other things no longer work for her. It shows the reality that sometimes “love at first sight” or even just “first love” may not be your forever someone. My second favorite part was how Maas dealt with PTSD and the depression and brokenness of all the characters who went through the events of ACOTAR. As someone who has suffered through some of these feelings, they rang true and actually helped me better understand myself and my reactions.
This series has been moved to my all-time favorites list, and I really wish I could time travel to get book 3 right now as the ending is both a conclusion and a cliffhanger. Sarah J. Maas, thank you for writing this book and see you at BookCon next weekend!!
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.
