Disappointed to say the least. I rarely give a bad review, just lucky I guess to find good reads, but…
This is the sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses.
First off, the leading lady, Feyre has become a whiney version of her former self. Complaining about everything. The book goes on and on about trivial things and I put it down in exasperation. Picked it up again, thinking, well….
Secondly, I gasped, and not in a good way, regarding the ubiquitous graphic sex scenes. Sara J. Maas? I’m surprised. I wasn’t expecting all that stuff from you. Now, I don’t mind some sex scenes, if done in an artsy way, but…EW! It didn’t make sense and didn’t move the story forward in any way.
If someone else has read this, please tell me the story gets better, because I’ve about 500 pages to go and at this rate I’ve wasted $8.99 on my Kindle.
If I do manage to slug my way through, you can bet I’ll do an HONEST review.

Ahh I’m not hugely fond of this series so far- so I’m interested to see your review of this! And in my opinion sex scenes are fine, but they have to be done well and not be completely out of place!
HI, I agree with you on obligatory sex scenes. If done at all, they should be artsy, (beautifully romantic, maybe?). I am going to do my best to finish this book. I read the first book in the series and it was pretty good, no yucky sex scenes. (I do like some, but only as you said, well done.)
I’ll post my review soon. Thanks for commenting. :o)

Hi- yes completely agree. Thanks very much- I’m looking forward to your review!
I have to disagree. This is an excellent series and cannot wait for the next
Hi Pam, I reacted too soon to the first chapter, but finished Court of Mists and Fury and ended up loving it…It turned out to be even better than Court of Thorns and Roses. So I agree, it’s a great series and like you I can’t wait for the sequel.. :o) Also, have you read An Ember in the Ashes? So good. :o)
