A Court of Wings and Ruin By Sarah j Maas Review 

I am a big fan of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and have been impatiently waiting the release of this book. As I pre ordered I also applied for a colour map of prythian. The problem with highly anticipated books is sometimes they don’t live up to expectations. ACOWAR lived up to my expectations but was not at all perfect. 


Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear.

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.

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.

I really enjoyed this book. As with any Sarah j Maas book you never know what is going to happen as she is constantly throwing curve balls. I liked how we got to see more of the other high lords and I loved luciens part in the story. I hope we get to see more of him in the spin offs. I still don’t like Tamlin but I feel like I have a better understanding of him. He is still possessive but I don’t believe he wants to be that way so he has potential to be better. It just won’t happen over night or in one book. 

I was surprised by Mor’s reveal to Feyre. Which kind of made me loose a bit of love for her due to how she leads on Az. I understand some of her reasoning especially concerning her family but not to tell those closest to her the reasons don’t make sense to me. However I liked that Mor and Az didn’t pair up as it felt more realist that not all the potential couples from ACOMAF got together. I don’t like how Nesta was forced on us. I really don’t like the character she has so many chances to do better and step up as the big sister but never does. She still only cares about herself and Elain. I also would have liked Feyre to have spent more time infiltrating the Spring Court. It all seemed a bit rushed. I think this book could have actually been two and given us more of Feyre playing double agent and had more time to get to know the other courts during the war.

I didn’t enjoy this one as much as ACOMAF but it still tugged on my heart strings. I look forward to seeing where the story goes in the next books. 4/5
