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.

Idk how to put all of my thoughts and emotions into words surrounding this amazing story! I, like everyone else wanted to strangle Nesta 50% of the time throughout the ACOTAR series thus far. That did not stop me from being super excited to see her and Cassian’s romance unfold! And OH MY!!! What a STEAMY romance it was!!
Nesta’s struggle is one that I think we can all find ourselves relating to in some way, shape, or form. ACOSF is a story of overcoming one’s inner demons, it’s a story of feeling unlovable and learning to be vulnerable and self-accepting again. It’s a story of unbreakable friendship and endless love! I found myself laughing out loud more times than I can count, crying tears of anguish and joy and just being overall blown away by the content. Though I do agree that the last 100 pages felt rushed, it didn’t stop me from thoroughly enjoying it from start to finish. I absolutely will be daydreaming of this book for a long time to come and am so incredibly sad to be leaving Velaris once again
