My star rating: ★ ★ ★

Three months after breaking the curse on Prythian and being resurrected as a High Fae by its High Lords, Feyre is haunted by her traumatic experiences as Amarantha’s prisoner. She flees north when her plans to marry the now unsupportive and oppressively overprotective Tamlin fall through thanks to the bargain she struck Under the Mountain with the High Lord Rhysand. There, in his mysterious Night Court, she discovers freedom, a kind of healing, and her own strange new abilities, but also that Amarantha may only have been the beginning of Prythian’s troubles. As the fearsome King of Hybern prepares for war, Feyre must attempt to make peace with her past, train herself for battle…and to make sense of her growing feelings for Rhys.

After killing a wolf in the woods outside her village, Feyre is ripped away from her miserable life with a crippled father and ungrateful sisters by a faerie who demands her life in exchange for the wolf’s. He takes her north of the wall that separates the mortal world from faerie realm of Prythian. Feyre slowly adjusts to her new life and, despite her lifelong hatred and mistrust of faeries, begins to warm to her companions–Tamlin and Lucien–after learning that she will never be able return to her home in the south. Yet the longer she spends in the faerie world, the more aware Feyre becomes that something is terribly wrong there. Prythian, she discovers, faces a threat that even its seven powerful High Lords cannot stand against.
