“A Court of Wings and Ruin” by Sarah J. Maas

Star Rating: 5 out of 5 stars ☆☆☆☆☆

WARNING!!! SPOILERS FOR A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury. PLEASE read them before continuing with this review!!!


Synopsis:  After Tamlin betrays all of Prythian to the King of Hybern in exchange for “retrieving” Feyre from her “imprisonment” at the Night Court, Feyre decides to go back to Tamlin willingly – as a spy.

Now High Lady of the Night Court, Feyre is raging with anger at Tamlin, whose actions caused so much harm – including the forced turning of both her sisters into Fae.  Feyre chooses to deceitfully infiltrate the Spring Court, gather information on how to bring down the King of Hybern, and to destroy the Spring Court from the inside.

For the King of Hybern has just begun.  His armies are gathering to destroy the peace brokered between the fae and the humans.  What will it take to drive this looming threat from the shores of Prythian?

Opinion:  I didn’t think I could possibly love this series more… I was wrong.  This is one of my absolute favorite series ever written.  I flew through the entire 700 page book in 2 days.  I just could not put it down.

Everything about it is amazing. The magic! The battles! The characters! The romance! … it all fits together like the perfect melody.  I just can’t praise this series enough.  I really can’t.

Again, I will warn that although this book can be found on YA shelves, I would not recommend this series for children.  It is graphically sexual and violent.

The only thing I am curious about is that the series is intended to continue.  While that is fantastic, I am curious as to why.  Maas truly did wrap this story up in a rather neat little bow at the end of this book – making it seem the perfect trilogy.  I can’t figure out how she intends to continue something already complete. But she does! The next book will be out next year!  Until then, I will have to sate my appetite for this series with lesser novels (lol).

If you haven’t read Maas’ books yet, I highly recommend that you pick them up.  Her strength is in character development.  Even in her Throne of Glass series, her strength lies with the characters. They are just perfect. Fleshed out and flawed and amazing.  A book series just isn’t good without good characters – and Maas is an expert, making each one incredibly addicting.
