So I don't even. I can't even. I don't know where to begin. I'm completely incoherent and I'm still a shaky, slightly teary mess.
This trilogy (and I don't care if there are more books coming out - that ending as far as I'm concerned, is it) is the best I've ever read. And I read a LOT of YA, so it naturally goes that I've read a lot of trilogies.
I was part-excited, part-terrified to pick this book up because ACOMAF almost killed me, but there was no way I couldn't find out what havoc the High Lady of the Night Court would wreak when she got dragged back to the Spring Court. Spoiler Alert: it didn't disappoint. She goes ice-queen beserk.
So it's not really giving anything away when I say that the plot revolves around the Night Court inner circle trying to stop the King of Hybern from invading Prythian and smashing the wall. The plot is chocker with twists and reveals and it never, ever lets up. Lots of storylines get tied up, but it's also left open for more books.
Feyre and Rhys are perfect. Just perfect. And that's all I have to say.
But it's not just Feyre and Rhys - the whole inner circle are amazing. Such well-fleshed-out characters with heartbreaking back stories and histories and beautiful connections with each other.
I re-read ACOMAF in preparation for this book coming out. It was my forth re-read and I came to the realisation that it's probably my favourite book of all time. Actual all time. This book is right up there with ACOMAF - the only thing it doesn't have is ACOMAF's Chapters 54 and 55 (you know the ones), but it's still amazing.
I am utterly ruined for all other series.
That is all.
