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.
I am utterly obsessed with this series. It's safe to say that these books are my absolute favorite. I cannot even express as to how much I love these books and how much they mean to me. A Court of Wings and Ruin tore me apart and put me back together again with its heart-wrenching beauty! It wrecked me in the best possible way. A review doesn't even do this book justice because it's just so amazing.
A Court of Wings and Ruin is the third installment in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. It is sadly the end of Feyre and Rhysand's story, BUT- the series will be continuing based on the other characters such as Elain, Nesta, ect. so I'm sure we'll still get to see our (or at least my) favorite OTP. I personally can't wait for the stories of Prythian to continue and I know our Queen won't let us down!
After A Court of Mist and Fury I came into ACOWAR with high expectations and boy were they met, from beginning to end. It was completely enthralling and glorious- ACOWAR was literally everything I hoped for and more. It starts us off shortly after ACOMAF ended, with Feyre back in the Spring Court, pretending to love Tamlin's again to gain insight on Hybern for Rhysand and her court. From there this book's plot just excels. Maas always does such a good job creating intricate plots that pulls you in and have you chewing on your fingernails for more. Literally and metaphorically because I no joke chewed off finger nails reading the last few chapters of this book.
Each of these characters have in-depth, deep pasts yet despite what they've all been through, their loyalties remain intact and they continue to fight again and again for each other, their court, and what they believe in. There is so much character development all throughout this series then we really get to see it shine when it matters most here in ACOWAR. Feyre started off this series as a "lamb", she was weak and had very little self-worth. We get to watch her really shine in ACOWAR as she truly sees herself, flaws and all but fights through it, rises up, and learns to love herself just the way she is despite everything she's done. Even though she learns to accept herself she realizes she is still broken but healing and accepts it.
Each character is broken in their own ways too, so they each have to find their individual ways to be strong. When a book revolves around so many characters I typically lose interest or have a hard time flowing which typically results in a confused me. Maas does such a great job incorporating all these characters and making so many of them feel so big and important all the while still making sure everything makes sense. She really ensure that everything flows which makes for an engrossing read!
I just absolutely adored how well Feyre and Rhysand do together. They''re seriously relationship goals. I love how when actions occur that the other doesn't like or agree with, they maturely talk things out and civilly come up with a solution. They both work so well together and are very considerate about consulting each other in decisions. It's great to see Rhys treat Feyre as an equal unlike some of the other males from the other courts. She gets a say, gets to be her own person, and Rhys trust her to make High Lady like decision for their court. Not only does he allow her but he encourages her.
"Night Triumphant- and the stars Eternal."
I know this is controversial but I really enjoyed how despite all the serious moments Rhys and Feyre were able to put it aside if only for a few moments just to enjoy themselves as a couple because with pending doom, you don't know whats going to happen and have to really utilize the time you have together. It was nice to see the put things aside to do that, they didn't completely let the stress consume them.
"I see all of you, Rhys. And there is not one part that I do not love with everything I am." -Feyre
We got to see so many sides of all the other characters like: Mor, Azriel, Nesta, Elain, Cassian, and even some characters that we didn't except to see a "different" side from. I really enjoyed these aspects and can't wait for future events/books with these characters. I can't wait to see what becomes of Elain and Lucien and get to explore more between Nesta and Cassian. I also hope we get to see some relationships evolve out of other characters like Az, Mor, and Amren in the future books. I'm so glad that Sarah has decided that she's not done with Prythian because I think it's safe to say that we aren't either! There are some issue that people have had with his book, to me they didn't bother me too much but it's been a controversial subject among the fandom. I am addressing that they are present but I'm not going to discuss them, partially because I'd have trouble doing so without slipping up when it comes to spoilers.
I am be doing a non-spoiler free review. If i do so I will do more into detail about things!
