Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.
Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit-and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.
As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places.
In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.
A Court of Wings and Ruin is over seven-hundred pages of immense action that rivals epic fantasies. It is really hard to write a review after literally reading for over twelve hours on and off. There is also really no way can I share much without spoiling the story. So it is for those reasons that this is going to be a mini-review.
I am a huge fan of this series and as A Court of Thorns and Roses is a trilogy I absolutely loved how things turned out. Okay, anyone familiar with this writer will argue that there are actually supposed to be six books in this series. Which is completely true. There are going to be three more books set in this world but to my understanding this is the end of the journey for Feyre’s character. Not saying she won’t be in the rest of the books, I just don’t think she is going to be the main character. The next books are going to be spin-off novels set in this world.
I will say that for me this book had emotional feels but did not hit the highs that the other books had. There were a few characters that were part of the storyline but went on missions and we practically never saw them again. I would have appreciated maybe a chapter every now and then where their story picked up from their perspective. There is many “full circle” moments and I appreciated those. Quite a few happy endings for some characters but there are others whose stories are a bit left untold. I am hoping that we are able to explore their stories more over the course of the next three books.
Overall, what a great ending to a fantastic journey in the ACOTAR world. It was a strong finish for Feyre, Rhys and the Night Court. Lots of reveals in this installment, more than in any other book in this series. Lets not even mention plot twists, there are so many twists and reveals happening throughout this story that you really need to be paying attention. Also, re-read or at least familiarize yourself with the stories from the first 2 books again. You will need to remember all the little details. Such a good read!! Love SJM’s world!! So good!
