*Not Enough Tamlin

“Only you can decide what breaks you, Cursebreaker. Only you.” Even though Feyre has returned to the Spring Court with Tamlin, she will do everything in her power to undermine the forces that threaten the people she truly calls family at the Night Court. Feyre must play a dangerous game of deceit to learn anything she can about the threat Hybern’s army poses and to find a way to get back to Rhysand. The biggest battle in Prythian history is about to take place and all the lives of the people she loves are at stake if they can’t stop the king of Hybern from taking over.

The conclusion to one of the most epic series I’ve read that has been released within the  last couple years is finally here. It had a lot to live up to with two fantastic books before it, but it more than delivered with the conclusion to Feyre’s story. The best part for me were all the new and old characters that come together in this book. Whether they are Feyre’s enemies or allies, it was interesting to see them all together and how they interacted with each other. Another bonus were all the new and unexpected back stories we learned with the appearance of these characters. Maas also made sure that the final chapters were massive enough in action and twists that it could stand up to the other two books and give us an exciting end.

If there was one thing I missed in this book, it was Tamlin. He was a huge part of my love of the first two books for many different reasons, but he’s not as big a focus in this one which means less page time. This is understandable because a lot is going on that doesn’t concern him and those scenes were just as awesome. But what I really craved was a one on one confrontation between Tamlin and Feyre where they really talked through all that had occurred between them. That aspect of the book felt unfinished to me but maybe that’s because Maas has a good reason for not exploring that…yet.

If I’m being honest with myself, this book is my least favorite of the three and would be a four out of five stars compared to the others. However, as a book compared to any other it definitely ranks as a five out of five. The story is just as engaging as the others, tears were shed, and the ending was concluded in a very satisfying way. I wanted a bit more Tamlin and Feyre interaction but maybe my wish will be granted in the future. While the series could end here, Maas has left readers with a few unanswered questions that could easily lead to more adventures with these characters we love so much.
