I thought I wanted this. I really did. More Feyre and Rhys? Yes, please! Not even going to lie. I was bored. I just read a book where everyone is buying gifts for each other and preparing for the solstice. That’s all it was. Nothing else has changed. Not Nesta, not Lucien and Elain, not Rhys and Feyre. Nothing. Nothing has changed. It’s just a book about a giant family, who is kind of broken, getting ready for solstice. That’s it. That’s the story.
I suppose a good bit of it was also about the HEALTHY way Feyre was able to heal at the Night Court as opposed to how she wasn’t able to heal in the Spring Court after the happenings Under the Mountain.
I suppose this book was a way of showing us that Feyre had finally found complete happiness. In every aspect of her life, she has healed and become happy. She found the people who support her in a positive way. People who TRULY love her.
I must admit, I was hoping for some developments with Nesta or Elain but I see now that I am going to have to read a few more books if I want that kind of update on their lives. It’s only fitting that Nesta gets a GIANT novel. I just don’t know how invested I am in her character. Am I invested enough to read another 500 pages about her and her character development? I think I might rather read about Elain. Eh. Maybe. Let’s be honest, that story is likely going to break my heart. There’s no way it can’t.
Anyway, this was still a book with some of my favorite characters and by one of my newfound favorite writers, so it gets a 3-star(cat) rating.
As I said in my notes, “Cute, but kinda boring.”
