Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

This is my 3rd reading of this book. I love re-reads because I always manage to learn something new or pick up on things that I missed the first time. As it’s two days until the release of ACOWAR it’s super great to have this story fresh in my mind.
I remember the first time I finished this book it totally blew me away! Usually I’ll kind guess where a story is headed but this one completely blindsided me.
The story picks up 3 months after Under the mountain happened. Feyre is back at the spring court, trying to adjust to life as a High Fae and preparing for her wedding to Tamlin.
On the day of said wedding Feyre desperately calls out for help (in her mind) which is when Rhys appears and calls in the bargain she made with him under the mountain from there he whisks her away to the night court and so begins the monthly visits.
This goes on for about 2 months. It’s on her 3rd return to the Spring Court that Tamlin locks her in the house for her “own safety” that Feyre completely breaks down and is rescued by Mor, who takes her to Rhysand where he promptly takes her back to the Night Court.
Feyre decides to stay at the Night Court and work with Rhys and his inner circle which is comprised of his most trusted friends, Mor, Cassian, Azriel, and Amren.
