The final battle has arrived for Feyre and her friends in Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Wings and Ruin. In the third installment in the series, Feyre must learn to forge alliances, destroy her enemies, and protect those she cares about the most.
Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's manoeuvrings 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. The earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.
Ok I don’t think I can say anything more about this series that I haven’t already, but I will try.This book was phenomenal! Maas interweaves each plot line together seamlessly and it makes the story flow beautifully. Each and every plot twist and revelation was just as shocking as the last one which only heightened the action of the story.
This novel focuses a lot on the battle with Hybern so there is a lot of strategy and action in this book. However, there is still enough fluff and steam to create an even balance to the narrative. What was really cool was that Maas gave the readers a broader scope of Prythian and the different courts to fully round out the world she’s created.
Feyre’s character continues to develop and grow as she learns to trust her newfound family, while also keeping her guard up against those who seek to harm her. This book is filled with treachery, deceit, and plot twists galore! It is quite hard to put this book down so I highly suggest you strap yourself in for a magical and chaotic ride. However, Maas leaves the ending a bit more open to allow for the plot to progress in the next book, A Court of Silver Flames, which is set to be released in the next few months.
While I liked the first two books in the series better, I still adored this book! I cannot wait for the next book to come out and to read about Nesta and Cassian! I’m very happy that the adventures in Prythian are not over yet and am eager to return to the world of faeries.
