My Thoughts

Honestly I wasn’t looking forward to this one.  I loved books #1-3, not a huge fan of the novella or Nest.  Her character has always been annoying in my opinion.  When I read this book was going to be all about!  Boy was I wrong!  

Nesta and her sister Elain were forced into the cauldron in book #3, and they came out changed and powerful.   When Nesta was inside the cold depths of the cauldron she took something from it but we don’t know exactly what that was.  Only that when she puts her powers to use, which is a rare occurrence, silver flames dance in her eyes.   All messed up after being made, Nesta chooses to live life in a rundown apartment and drinks and sleeps the nights away.   Tired of her antics Feyre and Rhys give her an ultimatum to either train with Cassian or be dropped back into the human side of the wall.

Guys this book gets STEAMY when she starts training.  You can just feel the tension between Cassian and Nesta and it is HOT. HOT!!!    During the day she trains and at night Nesta works in the house library and makes friends.  The walls she has put up begin to crumble after she makes friends with Gwyn.   Danger is still lurking, and that is why training with Cassian is of utmost importance.  The cauldron wants back what Nesta took, and their enemies are growing more powerful by the day.

I can’t tell you guys enough about this book without spoiling it.  I loved it so much, and like all the other books in the ACOTAR Series I was sad to read the last page.  I know some are skeptical about reading fantasy, I used to be one of them.   Thanks to this series for making me an addict!

There are not enough wine glasses to show how much I loved this book!

Goodreads Synopsis

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.
