Book Review – A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas
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.
DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE PREVIOUS BOOKS IN THIS SERIES AS IT WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE FIRST BOOKS.
If you are anything like me and you were left so completely broken by the events of Mist and Fury then you probably want to dive right into this book. I know I did!
Feyre has sacrificed everything to position herself back in the Spring Court with Tamlin. She is far from her mate and her family in the Night Court and thirsting for revenge.
Feyre is strong, so strong in this book and it is amazing to see how far she has come and how she has grown into her powers. Feyre is going to bring the Spring Court to its knees before returning to her mate and her newly cauldron-made sisters.
This book is action-packed right from the start! I still hated Tamlin with every fibre of my being. I genuinely think that this guys heart is in the right place but that there is no coming back from the things that he has done and especially not after Feyre is finished with him!
What I absolutely love about these books but with this one in particular is the character development! I mean holy god!
I love the scenes with Cassian and Nesta and I think they really start to build on what is to come in Silver Flames and Elain to slowly come into herself from what she was at the start of the book to THAT at the end, just my god. It was amazing.
I think this book just has so, so much going on that this having been my second read-through really made me appreciate it all so much more.
I had initially thought that Mist and Fury was my favourite of the three but now I have read them all again I really feel like they are neck and neck!
The pacing was perfect, the romance was sizzling and I loved every single second, minute, hour that I spent devouring this book!
