Publisher's summary

Sarah J. Maas' sexy, richly imagined series continues with the journey of Feyre's fiery sister, Nesta.

Nesta Archeron has always been prickly-proud, swift to anger, and slow to forgive. And ever since being forced into the Cauldron and becoming High Fae against her will, she's struggled to find a place for herself within the strange, deadly world she inhabits. Worse, she can't seem to move past the horrors of the war with Hybern and all she lost in it. 

The one person who ignites her temper more than any other is Cassian, the battle-scarred warrior whose position in Rhysand and Feyre's Night Court keeps him constantly in Nesta's orbit. But her temper isn't the only thing Cassian ignites. The fire between them is undeniable and only burns hotter as they are forced into close quarters with each other.

Meanwhile, the treacherous human queens who returned to the Continent during the last war have forged a dangerous new alliance, threatening the fragile peace that has settled over the realms. And the key to halting them might very well rely on Cassian and Nesta facing their haunting pasts.

Against the sweeping backdrop of a world seared by war and plagued with uncertainty, Nesta and Cassian battle monsters from within and without as they search for acceptance - and healing - in each other's arms.

The narration is the worst. :(

I have been waiting for this book for months now. I was so excited to hear another story from a beloved series. Until the narrator ruined. It was over exaggerated to a embarrassing degree and especially during the intimate scenes it was absolutely laughable. Amazing book, but I would recommend recording it with one of the previous narrators if you want it to be successful. This one can’t even compare to the last 4 books as far as narration.

Where is Jennifer Ikeda or Amanda Leigh Cobb??

I know how many Sarah J Maas Fans have been anxiously waiting for this book with high anticipation and hopeful expectations...I am one of them!! *sigh*
My review is not for the book itself, as I haven’t gotten very far into the story. My very sad and disappointed review is for the Audio version.
I don’t mean to diss or be unfair to Stina Nielsen, I have listened to her narrate prior books that I enjoyed. I’m just not sure what happened here with the Major Overacting. It’s almost like listening to something being narrated for very young children.
So yeah, it’s been very distracting to the story, which is SO unfortunate! It sucks when a beloved series changes narrators that may not know, or get the feel of the characters, or how the story has been told in the prior books.
I really don’t like being negative or critical about an artists’ work... I’m sure Ms Nielsen is very talented and well regarded in her field. Sometimes things just don’t vibe right.
I would just recommend listening to the sample before purchasing the audio version.

I can't get past the narration

I've been waiting over a year for this book! I pre ordered the audiobook and woke up today excited like Christmas morning. However, after suffering through 4 hours of the narration- I had to give up. I am loving the story so far despite the rough narration (which is a testament to Maas and her amazing series) but I feel like I have to continue reading on my own so I can pay more attention to the plot line and less cringing at the narrator. Everything is so overacted, voices all sound the same (especially the women) and I find my mind constantly wandering and missing the narrators of the last 4 books. If you are able to read the actual book, I recommend saving your audible credit, buying a copy and bringing the characters to life the way they deserve.

I don't care for the new narrator.

Nesta, Feyre, Mor, and Amren all sound the same. I had a hard time knowing who was talking. There is no cunning to Amren's voice, no light to Mor's, no sharpness to Nesta, and no hopefulness in Feyre's. They all sound tired, bored, and "sultry."

I should have purchased the hard copy instead.

Good god the narrator sucks

Love the story; HATE the narrator. Everything is over done, the accents are terrible, character voices are all the same. Do yourself a favor and read the print version.

Book needs recorded with a new narrator.

I feel badly being this critical of someone’s work, but it seems like the narrator was purposefully trying to sabotage the book.

This is a long novel and many readers waited months for its release, so it is unfortunate that the audiobook was so disappointing. The author and this narrator appear to have worked together before, but the narrator sounds seriously impaired on this project. I’m not sure what happened, we all have off days. My advice, if you are a Mass fan, is to buy the hard copy and save your eardrums. It was that bad. It didn’t matter if you increased or slowed the playback speed. It was like a train wreck at times, you just couldn’t believe how bad it was. I don’t even remember most of the story because you can’t get past the overly dramatic ‘acting’. There will be a lot of refund requests on this. Sorry, I know this is harsh, and the author likely had no control over the final copy, but hoping it prevents someone else from enduring countless hours of torture.

Disappointingly thin plot an excuse for sex scenes

TERRIBLE narration and a rip off storyline of the first 3 books that goes nowhere. I wanted this book to work but oof, very little happens in this plot except Nesta has lots of sex, trains, and deals with her insecurities, This book doesn't move the "A Court of Thorns and Roses series" forward at all, and felt like an excuse to write raunchy sex scenes for the devoted reader for a quick buck but none of the magic of the 1st 3 books. I forced myself to finish it but would die of deep shame and mortification before ever recommending it to a friend. Guilty pleasures are great but this book was a pale, empty experience. The author did a disservice to her fans.

Good luck getting passed the narrator

I’m counting down the minutes until I return this for a refund because of the melodramatic and silly narrator. At this point, I’m like, one more minute, one more minute. Also, when did this series turn into the Black Dagger Brotherhood? Same-same! The author dialed it in, so I guess none of it matters.

Performer didn't do her research

This review is going to be short. I'm going to have to buy the book and just read it. This performer did not listen to the other books to properly research her roles and it shows - big time. The voices she gives everyone are so incredibly off, it's jarring and frankly disappointing. I was so looking forward to this latest installment to the series. This performer missed the mark by a lot.

No, because I hate these people.

Still in the beginning, but holy mother of God, are these characters insufferable. The only good character is Nesta. She had literally several story options and we choose the route of making her a prisoner because they don't like her lifestyle. Forced relinquishing of freedom never sits right with me and I would love a story where Nesta deals with trauma her own way discovering something on her own while battling back the Night Court and her sisters. Maybe Nesta could learn more about herself by being the independent woman she is and that she need helps. But I know where this story is heading and it's going down the road the other books went down. Feyre and Rhys are ones who call the shots completely. I get it, they rule the joint, but still. I just want someone who knock them down a peg. Please!!!
Another thing, she doesn't have to fall in love. seriously, she seems like the person to not fw with this characters to begin with so this forced relationship that is already building with Cassian is not doing for me. Nesta is literally the only character with actual character.
I just want someone to punch Rhys in the mouth. Just one time please.
