"It's Christmas in California/And it's hard to ignore that/It feels like summer all the time/But I'll take a West Coast winter/To remove my splinters/It's good to be alive/It's good to be alive." -Jack's Mannequin.
It's good to be alive and it's good to be with family; especially if your family is the Blackthorns, Carstairs, or Herondales. Until that family is ripped apart by politics and violence and a little bit of faerie trickery. Julian, Emma, Cristina, Kit and literally everyone else we've ever loved are tangled up in a web of secrets and betrayal that has a consequence no one saw coming. Unless you reread this and see the foreshadowing. Come and join ACOFAE as we gush over Julian and his one liners ("I am ruined") and ugly cry over the end of the book. "Death is a gift".
