Sometimes the romantic fantasy turns into a nightmare. Thankfully in this case. There was nowhere interesting for the story to go, otherwise. Turns out the dreamy fairy prince is an overprotective, controlling asshole and the scary dark prince is actually a super respectful great guy haunted by a dark past who, let’s be honest, probably knows his way around a sex dungeon but would always get consent before tying anyone up.
Feyre, now a fairy herself, makes new friends and sets out to save the world from the evil fairy lord across the sea.
Romance isn’t really my thing, but there’s magic and fairies and a reasonably well-thought-out magic system and it’s such easy reading that I keep going. If you’re a little more interested in cheesy romance (and over-the-top sex scenes) than I am, you’ll probably love it as a guilty pleasure.
