MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT!
Feyre went through a bit of a transformation in ACOMAF, the most obvious one is that she becomes a Fae. But it is not the only one; Feyre has lived a nightmare under the mountain and she has done things she will regret for the rest of her (immortal) life. But that also made her stronger. At the end of ACOMAF, she is not the same girl she was, so be prepared to meet the new Feyre in ACOWAR. She is deadly, unforgiving and you’d better not be her enemy, (just saying).
I have a million thoughts about this book and I feel like this review is gonna be a mess(I also feel like I’m often saying that). I won’t be able to write anything coherent with a structure and all that. It will just be messy (don’t say I did not warn you).
Feyre is back in the Spring Court with Tamlin and she is acting like she lived a nightmare in the Night Court (because Rhys is such a bad guy), but she is actually plotting her revenge to tear the Spring Court apart. Tamlin is such a brat, I want to strangle him. Seriously he was getting on my nerves after a few pages (my opinion has not changed but the end of the book made me a bit more sympathetic to him. Just a bit). Lucien is not as naïf as Tamlin (seriously, I don’t understand how he could not see anything happening, is it possible to be that blind?!) and he begins to have doubts about Feyre’s intention. Alis also knows Feyre is up to something and she asks her to liver her out of it. Well, a lot happens and in the end Feyre destroys them. The court is not trusting Tamlin anymore and it is chaos. Feyre leaves with Lucien (after smashing Ianthe’s hands. That was brutal, by the way).
Then it is the long awaited reunion between Feyre and Rhys (don’t tell me you were not waiting for it), and I was kind of disappointed. Too much sex, not enough talk. The sex scenes were not really to my taste and they weren’t necessary I think. But anyway, I was so happy they were finally back together. Feyre also gets to see all her friends, but most importantly her sisters (who are also Fae now) and it is not such a happy reunion. Nesta is as cold as ever and really protective towards Elain, while the later is depressive. They are trying to find a way to resist Hybern and they are planning a meeting with the other High Lords to try to form alliances. A lot of stuff happened, Feyre is making new dangerous "friends" and searches for some powerful objects that everyone is afraid of. Then the war happens and miraculously, everyone lives. I was so ready for someone to die, I thought it would be Cassian and I was so scared, but I was ready. But nothing happened. Well, yes, Rhys dies. Oh no, he came back from the dead. Just like Feyre. I did not believe it for one second. And it happens so fast that you don’t even have the time to be sad.
There is also a tiny bit of diversity in this book and I did not expect it. It was a great twist in Mor/Cassian/Az story. I loved all the new characters and I’m glad to see more of some of them. Nesta is my new favourite, honestly. She is so great! I also did not expect to see Feyre’s father. Maybe it should have been obvious but I almost cried when he appeared (well, it was not a long apparition, but still). Feyre is ready to do anything to protect those she loves (Rhys is beating everyone in this category, is this male even real? He is probably Abnegation).
I’m really excited about the new stories to come about this world because Sarah J Maas did a really good job building all this. I loved every page of this book and I am so sad it’s already over. One word to describe this trilogy: perfection
