Rating: 2 of 5 stars

Book, you have wounded me. You have deceived me. You have tricked me into thinking you were a precious gem. Book, you have disappointed me.

I had a lot of expectations for ACOMAF. Rhysand? The Night Court? Power and Politics? Don’t say more because I am hooked already. Also, the glowing reviews I read increased my excitement for this book and I was prepared to love this book. I was prepared to be hypnotized by Maas’s rich writing style. I was prepared to fangirl hard over this book.

The first few chapters made me even more confident that this was going to be an amazing read indeed. I loved how Maas cleverly tricked us into accepting the love triangle by making Tamlin an annoying control freak. I loved how Rhysand whisked Feyre away and introduced her to the Night Court and I was so sure that everything was going to be spectacular.

She plucked a rose and held it to her face. She hated the way roses smelled, their sweetness too fragile. She wanted a garden of evergreens. A garden of stones. A garden of swords. 

Who wouldn't love a character as feisty as she is?

This book was an utter delight to read! I couldn't put this book down, couldn't look at another book while this was still uncompleted. It hooked me from page one and I couldn't get enough of it. 

The reason why this book and I clicked right off the bat is because I simply love anti-heroes. Lada, the daughter of Vlad Dracul is the polar opposite of sugar and everything nice. She is spice. She is fierce and strong. She is like a breath of fresh air.
