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.

This was a good all round view of building relationships. I was hopping for more on business culture. Seemed to go from FBI spy to knowing if someone at a bar is interested in you to telling if your kids are lieing to being careful with internet relations.
