Personal opinion on the book:
First I just want to say that these characters names are so fricken unique! They are so unique that I cannot even say them! Basically my friends and I are talking about books, I bring up the ACOTAR series and try and talk about the main characters, and all I can say is Tamlin. And I DON'T EVEN LIKE TAMLIN! All I want to talk about is Rhys and Feyre, but alas! My inability to speak english words makes it downright impossible to say their names... 

ANYWAY! Lets get on to talking about how amazing this book was!!!
I have actually been putting off writing this review for about seven weeks. It's not that I don't like the book! Hell I LOVE IT! But I am having trouble putting into written word how much I adored this book! 
And to be honest, I feel as though I will NEVER be able to do this book justice. But hey! I'm going to try!
So, before I get into the actual review, bare with me while I show you this adorable picture that I found. (Credit to whoever made the image - it is so amazing!)

And now that I have shown you this amazing picture, I will now go on to talk about this image - and the resulting ship! 
So the way that I view the book is that the only thing worth talking about is Rhys and Feyre! 
So, towards the end of the first book in that ACOTAR series, I was innocently sitting on twitter and found a tweet where someone said something along the lines of "so now I have finished the ACOTAR series, I HATE Tamlin!" And that made me doubt how much I liked Tamlin. So I got to thinking and came to the conclusion that although Tamlin did love Feyre, in the ACOMAF book, he came across as possessive and a bit sexist. 
But then, insert Rhys *swoon* he was just the sun on a cloudy day and MADE THE BOOK! 
He is officially my favorite book boyfriend and is the best character ever! He was there for Feyre when she needed him (even if she didn't think that his help was needed). 
And I curse (yet praise) Sarah J. Maas for setting my expectations so high! 

Basically, I adore this book and Sarah J. Maas' writing style. Overall, this book deserves a huge star rating of like 1 million out of 5 stars. 

Star rating (out of 5):
This book was truly incredible to read and I am so happy that I have been able to experience this beautifully, well-written book! This book gets a star rating of 5/5 stars! And also gets the title of one of my top 5 books I have read this year!
