Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

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. 

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.

“Only you can decide what breaks you, Cursebreaker. Only you.”

I put off reading A Court of Wings & Ruin by Sarah J. Maas for what feels like forever. Even though I knew I would love it and I knew about the novella (which I own). I did not want this trilogy to end. But alas, all good things must come to an end, and boy what an ending this is.

Holy crap. I can see now why people adore this series. This final book was an absolute joy to read. It is very hard for me to even describe to you how much I enjoyed it, but I will do my best!

“We’re all a broken, in our own ways – In places no one might see.”

I think my absolute favorite thing about this book is just how much more in depth everything is. All the characters have grown and everything is far more gritty than the first two books combined. Because of the more gritty nature of A Court of Wings & Ruins plot, the characters really start to show just how much love and affection they have for each other. Every single one of them in some form is broken. They are all far from perfect individuals. I just feel so many things for all of them within this book. Even with the way that Tamlin is portrayed, I still felt so much sadness for him. A completely broken person. My heart went out to him.

“Night Triumphant- and the Stars Eternal.”

With Feyre, her progression from the first book to this one is, simply put, beautiful. Thinking about how she once upon a time thought she was worthless and useless. That nobody loves her and that she is completely isolated. A family that did not really do much in terms of caring for her either. From her lowest point, she was able to grow and appreciate the life she now has. She has her mate, Rhysand, a new and restored family, and a place where she can call home.

It is also so interesting and thrilling to see Feyre learn and control the powers as High Lady of the Nightcourt. With help from Rhy and her friends, she is able to harness her powers and make them a work of Art.

“And will you come with me; On this adventure – and all the rest?”

I also just feel so many emotions for Rhysand and the struggles he goes through about his past. He is so so loyal and would do absolutely ANYTHING to stop people from getting hurt. He never wants anyone to experience the trauma that he had to go through. Rhy is even willing to sacrifice his life in order to save the life of others. This final book really put a ring around my love for Rhy and the relationship between him and Feyre. Feysand forever and always!

“My goal was bigger than revenge. My purpose greater than personal retribution.”

I even felt so many emotions for the other characters within A Court of Wings & Ruin. Though I didn’t think I would, I did. The main one I felt super emotion about was in fact the Suriel. Oh how I cried and cried and I just couldn’t stop! Cassian and Nesta with their relationship (or lack thereof) is also incredibly emotional. I really hope there is more of the two of them!

Everything about this book is a thrill and I really did not want it to end. I think A Court of Wings & Ruin is the most outstanding finale for a book that I have read in a while. My heart was completely in the world of Pyrthian and with all the characters. How everyone was able to band together in order to overthrough a great threat to their lands.

A beautifully emotional book from start to finish and if you have never read this series, I highly implore you to try it. An absolutely phenomenal book!
