“But this is war. We don’t have the luxury of good ideas—only picking between the bad ones.” 

When ACOMAF ended, I was kind of itching myself on how Feyre and Rhysand can be reunited on the next sequel. Also, ACOMAF had a lot of thrill and full of unexpected events which made my hearts gasp a lot of times. But you know what, I never expected that ACOWAR outdid ACOMAF. In a way, every book had their plot uniqueness, but ACOWAR was a lot of my heart to take in.

The bond of Feyre and Rhysand have gotten stronger and can I say it - wild! Yes, this ship is going wild and my heart has never been so contented about it. Together with the Cassian, Azriel, Amren and Mor, they set their own boundaries to risk everything to save Prythian and the Mortal Land from Hybern.

As I go through each chapter, it invited me to a new set of destruction. Every character faced their doubts on themselves. Nesta and Elain being Made by the Cauldron, both characters refused the reality at first, however, they gradually adapted to the Fae world and cooperated to defeat Hybern. It was a tough time reading Nesta and Elain's refusal of their new identity on my end. Especially to Elain, her sadness on losing the engagement moved me.

Of course, there are a lot of things that sang my heart with full of joy. It is not just Feyre and Rhysand by the way, it is Nesta and Cassian that made me giggle. These characters have a lot of denials as well, but as their hearts realized the risks they have made to the people they loved, it immensely brought a lot of bond on them. You know what, I was actually waiting for any line of the book that will say they are Mate. Because that will definitely put a lot of happiness on my bookish heart!

But most importantly, the fights that Feyre and Rhysand did, the secrets that they kept to each other and then revealed at the end is truly a work of art. From the way they accepted their fate, even the ugly side of themselves, Feyre and Rhysand accepted each other whole heartedly. It was beautifully crafted into perfection. The amount of satisfaction that I had is immeasurable. ACOWAR is truly the most intensifying, thrilling and satisfying sequel that I've been wanting to read. You know what, Sarah J. Maas just keeps on surpassing her boundaries in every book she writes. Everything was written to entice the reader on wanting more to her characters. And I am so in love with every bit of ACOWAR.
