«What we think to be our greatest weakness can sometimes be our biggest strength.» – Quote from the book
Well ,I finally read this book soon after reading ACOMAF. Well ACOMAF ended on a high note and I expected the same for ACOWAR but it lacked some magic. I have seen a lot of mixed reviews about this book but I enjoyed this book a lot though, I have to admit ACOMAF was the best.
Well this book continues with Feyre in the Spring Court trying to find out the secrets and take it back to Night Court. I see a lot of changes in Feyre’s personality from the first book. She is more determined in her purpose and this time she is powerful also. This book also introduces new characters,Feyre’s sisters ,Nesta and Elain. They are not exactly new but we get to know them in greater detail . They play a pivotal role in the book . We see that Rhysand’s inner circle ,Cassian, Azriel, Mor ,Amren blend together with the storyline and add warmth , friendship and romantic elements to the story. I loved the tension between Nesta and Cassian .
We get a better understanding of Prythian and the world-building is immense. We get to know the enemies, King of Hybern a lot better.
The story I’d say is fast paced with well written war sequences even though it is predictable at times. The book seemed cliche at times but nevertheless I enjoyed the war scenes AND the pivotal role Feyre played. She is a headstrong feminist character. We see a lot of character development in this book. Rhysand is someone on whom I could write a thesis. He is so good. So I particularly liked the Cauldron coming live and all the unraveling of the prophecy. I mean it was a pretty good read for those who have already read the previous two books because you know exactly what you are in for. Mass’ writing is captivating and fast paced and be prepared to be sucked in this book.

I can’t wait to read the next book in the series, I mean, A Court of Frost and Starlight.
