A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas
Published May 2nd 2017
A nightmare, I’d told Tamlin. I was the nightmare.
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.
What a wild ride.
I won’t be giving away any spoilers so this will be a fairly short review.
As one of my most anticipated books of all time, this book left me exhausted and maybe a tiny bit disappointed. I did give this book five stars and I did love it but I didn’t love it as much as the other two books, especially ACOMAF. It would have been pretty hard to top ACOMAF for me so I don’t hold that against A Court of Wings and Ruin that much. I can’t really put my finger on what about this book left me feeling like it was a little lacking but there’s just something there. I know that’s not very helpful but hopefully when I reread this series, I’ll find what I’m looking for.
This book was kind of predictable and I felt like it was a little slow at times. It is a pretty large book, 699 pages, so being slow at times wasn’t the end of the world for me. It would be difficult to have non stop action for almost 700 pages.
The character development in this book (the whole series, really) is amazing. Sarah writes some of the best character development I’ve ever come across.
One of my favorite things about this series is how the side characters are just as awesome and well developed as the main characters. I felt like a lot of the side characters got more time to shine in A Court of Wings and Ruin and I loved that.
The world building through out this series is amazing and I love the world within this series so much. It’s so well written and creative.
Overall, this book was amazing, crazy and well worth the month I spent reading it. It’s not my favorite in the series but I still loved it. If you haven’t pick up this series, I highly recommend it.
