Alright, I know I haven’t posted reviews for ACOTAR and ACOMAF here yet so in summary:
ACOTAR: Really loved it. The world building was awesome, and Amarantha can choke.
ACOMAF: Tamlin is a tool. Ianthe can choke too. The Suriel is the captain of the FeySand ship. The inner circle is amazing and they are squad goals. Finishing ACOMAF had me freaked out especially for Feyre’s sisters,
Disclaimer: This review contains spoilers for ACOTAR and ACOMAF.
Feyre is stuck in the spring court, being a spy and playing Tamlin’s lovely housewife. While they play house, a war is brewing and Rhysand along with the Inner Circle has to come up with an army strong enough to at least stand a chance with Hybern’s forces, and evacuate innocent humans who live so close to the wall. Sacrifices are made, new bargains are struck, and calls for help to other allies are sent.
This was just amazing. This book just blew me away more than once. I loved the cunning, scheming side of Feyre we see while she was at the Spring Court. I also loved how we were able to revisit old characters like The Bone Carver and The Weaver, as well as meet more menacing creatures like Bryaxis. Nesta as Fae was a force to be reckoned with, though when it came to if, I kind of found her power a bit underwhelming? I think I expected Amren levels of power with how much they hyped up Nesta’s power. Elain had a suprisingly cool power too.
All of the characters are dealing with their own demons, each of them have their own wounds to deal with yet they are all strong. Can I just have a group hug with the entire inner circle? I love them so much.
SJM writing about wars is amazing. She always has these big and they never fail to amaze me. There are also pleasant surprises and I actually got chills while reading it. I like how she made each character still have importance, no matter how fleeting their appearance in the book is. We also got to see the extent of the character’s powers, omg Cassian! And Morrigan! And Amren! I love love loved it!
An unexpected ship popped out too, with a certain Illyrian and a certain made fae, and IDK about you guys but I LIKE IT. I SUPPORT IT. I SHIP IT. (Will this be another Chaolaena? Me hopelessly shipping as the pairing sinks into oblivion? We’ll see.)
Also can we talk about Rhysand and Feyre? They are literally relationship goals. I’m not even talking about how hot Rhysand is, or how they are as a power couple, but them being in a healthy relationship in general. HE TREATS FEYRE AS AN EQUAL AND DOESN’T “LET” FEYRE DO ANYTHING CAUSE HE KNOWS HE DOESN’T OWN HER AND FEYRE IS MATURE ENOUGH TO MAKE HER OWN DECISIONS. So much yes!!!!!!
Just go read now this is so amazing omg do it do it do it!
