My reread of the final book in the original ACOTAR trilogy! When I first read this one there was no talk of more books yet so it definitely felt like a finale. This time around I know what’ll happen next, does that change my view of the book? Let’s dive in!
FEYRE WILL BRING VENGEANCE.
She has left the Night Court - and her High Lord - and is playing a deadly game of deceit. In the Spring Court, Tamlin is making deals with the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees, and Feyre is determined to uncover his plans. But to do so she must weave a web of lies, and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.
As mighty armies grapple for power, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords - and hunt for allies in unexpected places.
BUT WHILE WAR RAGES, IT IS HER HEART THAT WILL FACE THE GREATEST BATTLE.
THE THRILLING THIRD BOOK IN #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING FANTASY SERIES FROM SARAH J. MAAS.
A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3) by Sarah J. Maas
Published by Bloomsbury Publishing on 02/05/2017
A Court of Wings and Ruin was the first finale in a Sarah J. Maas series we ever got and I have to admit I was a little bit disappointed. And I was also scared for the finale of Throne of Glass as that has always been my favorite series out of the two. Luckily that series finale was amazing so there was no need to worry.
“Only you can decide what breaks you, Cursebreaker. Only you.”
But coming back to this book, I still think there are some things that could’ve been better in this finale. Overall I do enjoy the story and I think the storyline is fine. But there are some cop outs that feel cheap and that I really didn’t like. It also makes me so much less emotional compared to when I read Throne of Glass. During that reread I kept on crying, but for this one I hardly shed a tear. The only part that makes me sad is the last scene with the suriel haha.
“Kindness can thrive even amongst cruelty.”
I still enjoy the characters and we get to see some more of some of them which was fun. With the chance of repeating myself, I realise I just don’t like Feyre that much. She is my least favorite leading lady in all of Sarah’s series.
“Leave this world… a better place than how you found it.”
I’ve seen some cool theories online about Crescent City and it was fun trying to see if I could find clues in A Court of Wings and Ruin. It’s going to be so much fun to read that third book, I can’t wait to get my hands on it. And probably find out I missed all of the foreshadowing haha.
While the story was enjoyable, this might be my least favorite Sarah J. Maas book. After this one, I also read the novella A Court of Frost and Starlight and then it was off to Crescent City. I hope to have a review for that one soon as well. Have you read A Court of Wings and Ruin? Did you enjoy it? And what did you think of it as a series finale? Let me know in the comments!
