My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
When I first saw the number of pages in this thing I was asking Mother above to give me strengh. 700 pages long must be my personal record or something. I don’t remember reading anything longer than 500 or so pages. When it came to ACOWAR, though, it was different. If I didn’t have to go to work I wouldn’t have put it down. 700 pages didn’t seem nearly enough.
I mean ACOTAR was good but I didn’t really get into it until somewhere in the middle. ACOMAF was what made me fall in love with the series and ACOWAR just made an emotional yo-yo out of me.
Thank you, God, for my booze storage
It’s not to say the book was perfect. No. It was spotty and the writing was uneven in places, and I also have a few questions that were bugging me during reading. Unfortunately, I can’t list them all because of the spoilers, so I’ll just stick with these three:
1. When did Feyre master her powers to that degree we’ve seen her use in Spring Court? As far as I could tell at the end of ACOMAF she only just started to learn to walk, metaphorically speaking.
2. Was it just me or characters’ speach became much more modern comparing to ACOTAR?
3. Did anyone see the reveal about Mor coming?
And to that point, I couldn’t figure out what was her problem with Nesta. Not cool, just not cool. And Az? That’s just cruel.
And can pleeease someone make me a chart of who’s good and who’s evil, because they switched pretty easy back and forth. I couldn’t decide what to make of anyone. That’s a good thing by the way, Fae are supposed to be tricky that way.
Seeing as there are too many open storylines to explore, the next book could either be a continuation or a spin-off, but I don’t think it’d be a prequel. I know SJM said it could be anything, but I just don’t see the point in going that route. I’ll read it anyway, I love this world too much not to, just saying that it would be weird.
That’s all I have to say, uness I think of something more and decide to edit the shit out of it.
Over and out
