“What we think to be our greatest weakness can sometimes be our biggest strength.”
Hello, my bookish friends. I hope you’re doing amazing. I should’ve written this review book weeks ago, but I couldn’t, because I’ve been babysitting my nephews a lot lately, and by the end of the day I’m just so exhausted. How do parents stay sane! Anyways, today I’m going to review ACOWAR finally! I still don’t know how to feel about it, let’s just say that I have a love\hate relationship with this book. Without further ado, Let’s review this book!
After the damage that has been done in Velaris by Tamlin, a dangerous war is coming sooner than ever to Prythian. High Lady of the Night Court, Feyre returns to the Spring Court again as a spy for Rhysand, to expose Tamiln’s plans and use them against him, and to avenge her sisters. However, in the process of plotting against Tamiln, Feyre has to choose the right allies to help them win the war against Hybern.
Don’t you just hate it when you have high expectations for a book you’ve been waiting so long to read, then it ends up disappointing you? I have no problem with books that have almost 700 pages or even more. As long as the plot is engaging and not repetitive, I’m totally okay with that. This book surely didn’t need to be that long, because I felt like I was reading the same thing over and over again, especially the chapters in the beginning of the book, but the last chapters were definitely better. Don’t get me wrong, I’m obsessed with Sarah’s writing style, and I love how dramatic and twisted it is. But I don’t get why this book is so long?! It actually made me go through a terrible reading slump, and I hated that so much. Because this series is my favorite one that I have ever read so far, and I felt so upset over the fact that It didn’t live up to my expectations. What a bummer! Also, is it just me or this book feels like it’s just about Rhysand and Feyre making out? It was unnecessarily too much! Especially when they were making out in the library, which is by the way a safe place for priestesses who were sexually harmed!! Are you serious! Of all the places they could’ve chosen, A LIBRARY!! I just can’t even! Can we talk about how manipulative and sneaky Ianthe is? I knew she was trouble the moment she appeared in ACOMAF. Something was suspiciously off about her, but I’m glad about what Feyre has done to her, good riddance. I’m not going to to talk about Tamlin, because he’s totally not worth it, and I’m so happy that Lucian left him. One thing that really bothered me is that the book focused more on the new characters instead of the old ones, like Azriel, I still want to know more about him. Now, let’s talk about what I liked in the book. I really liked knowing more about Lucian’s mother and what his cruel father did to him. But, I was really shocked when I knew his real father, and I’m surprised Feyre didn’t tell him anything. Let’s just hope Feyre doesn’t make any stupid decision in the next book, because I think Lucian would feel upset if she doesn’t tell him the truth. I also like Nesta, because she’s her own person, and she doesn’t let anyone stop her if she sets her mind on doing something. When it comes to Mor, I hope we will learn more about her in the next book. To wrap up my review, there are so many moments that I liked in the book, but I’m not going to talk about them, because I don’t want to spoil anything more. Please don’t hate me for pointing out what I didn’t like in this book, because as I said, I love and hate this book at the same time and I’m definitely going to read the next books in the series. I hope you enjoyed my review, and hope you have a wonderful day.
