Excerpt: "Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's actions and learn what she can about the invading king threatening to bring her land to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit. One slip could bring doom not only for Feyre, but for everything-and everyone-she holds dear.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre endeavors to take her place amongst the High Fae of the land, balancing her struggle to master her powers-both magical and political-and her love for her court and family. Amidst these struggles, Feyre and Rhysand must decide whom to trust amongst the cunning and lethal High Lords, and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the fate of Feyre's world is at stake as armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy it."

My Rambles: I really don't understand why they brought Elaine to the war. I know it's because they thought they'd need her for the cauldron but still, she shouldn't have been there. Not because she is soft but because she is useless. (I know she stabbed him but still, she got in the way) I also really really don't think people give Nesta enough credit. She was willing to die for everyone. She was fierce in her justice. Though I do feel as though her character "arc" regressed in the next book, the aftermath of the war but I can't fully fathom that level of trauma I suppose. I still got teary eyed in this one, they way they shared their love before that battle, but the battle itself wasn't that powerful. Stryga should not have been killed so easily. She is too strong of a being that something so simple is what took her out. I'm sad to lose the Carver, I feel as though he could have become an ally the way Amren was. Feyre should have told the Suriel that he was her friend as he died. It may be considered a half lie but that's what he was. I hate that he died too and think she and Rhys should have named their first kid, if not a subsequent one, Suri or something, in honor of all that it had done for them.

Everyone likes to hate on Mor for her hiding her truth when that is her power (which because it hasn't really been wielded, I don't understand) and I feel as though it might be because they don't know how awful it is to have to hide yourself away so deep inside that the thought of having that truth on display physically hurts. Yeah it's 500 years later and she's not with her family but healing from trauma isn't dictated by time.

Tamlin needs to stop blaming Feyre (and so does she) for making his court walk away from him. He did it, his choices are what led to it. If he has stuck with his people instead of letting Ianthe run rampant, things wouldn't have gone so far. I do semi hate that he's miserable even after they won the war. Like he reaped what he sowed but still.
