I really enjoyed this book. It’s similar to the Buttons series but different enough to make it interesting. I can’t wait for the next one!!

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.

Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she'd only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head....

I love Charlaine Harris and I have so much respect for her as an author and as much as I wanted to like this book I just couldn’t get it to it. The narrator was great but the story fell flat.

I just didn’t like this book. Starting out it seemed like it was going to be interesting but then.... Nope! One positive is that I did like the narrator.
