I knew when I went into this book that I would enjoy it, I just wasn't sure how much. Having read both Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight (which I loved and will continue to read it when I collect the rest of the books) I wanted to try her new series having heard mixed things about it. What I love the most about this book and about all of Sarah's books (ones that I have read so far, of course!) is the complexity of the world and the characters. I have to remind myself that this is a young adult fiction novel. The way the world is described, the way the characters interact and the plot really do make me forget what type of reading audience it is aimed at. To me, this story is universal and can be enjoyed by anyone at any age. Feyre as the beauty in this story is so well written and comedic in places. I liked the fact that she is very 'kick ass' in the way that she deals with her enemies but very compassionate when dealing with others. There are also so many secrets to uncover and secrets left to uncover I can't wait to be able to get my hands on the next in this series and find out what happens next!
