Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Wings and RuinSynopsis:

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 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

Favorite Lines:

“It’s a rare person to face who they are and not run from it—not be broken by it.”

“What we think to be our greatest weakness can sometimes be our biggest strength.”

“Kindness can thrive even amongst cruelty.”

“I would have waited five hundred more years for you. A thousand years. And if this was all the time we were allowed to have…the wait was worth it.”

My Opinion:

I will start by saying that this is technically the last book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. There is a novella coming out as well as some-sort of spin-off to come in the future.

A Court of Wings and Ruin follows Feyre and Rhys as they navigate their lives and prepare for the impending war that is going to change the future for both humans and fae alike. I am still 100% bias for this series because it is my favorite series to date so I am going to keep this review pretty short and sweet. If you have made it this far in the series than you will understand why this book is a must read. It is the conclusion to the series and has so much to cover to wrap up the story that Maas has laid out for us.

That being said, I don’t like how many events had to be covered in this last book. It was almost like Maas had all these ideas and wanted to express them but was limited to this last book to cover them. I feel like some the events that took place towards the end of the story could have been expanded upon and drawn out longer (you will see what I mean when you read it). I hope that Maas is able to expand upon a lot of what happened in her next book and spin-off series.

Summary:

Overall, I love this series and this is my fifth time reading it. What I love so much about Maas is that she is able to paint such a detailed and extensive picture of the worlds she creates. No matter how many times I read her books, there is always some detail that I pick up on that I see later on in the series or can reflect back on from a previous book. Maas is excellent at connecting all her stories together and weaving story lines together. I can’t wait to see what she does next.
