The time has come. The war is upon them. Feyre started her journey starving for both food and love. Now, she is the mate of the most powerful high lord in the world. But can they survive the immense forces of Hybern, who plan to enslave humans?
Feyre is officially one of my favorite characters. Hell, this whole series is going down as one of my favorites. I’m so excited to read more in this world and I hear there will be at least one more book. This third book, A Court of Wings and Ruin, is the closing trilogy for this storyline. Hybern has the cauldron and the forces. Rhys, Cassian, Azriel, Amren, Mor and Feyre must fight together to beat him. But there are some huge twists in this story that made my mouth drop open. This fantasy world is rich with detail and the romance heats up the pages. The action is seriously intense but I found the last battle too drawn out. Just when I thought the fight is about to come to an end, there’d be another part to get through. It feels very bogged down and slow moving. The ending is beautiful and romantic. I love how everything plays out, including a few unexpected twists.
If you love epic fantasy with romance than this series, A Court of Thorns and Roses, is an absolute must read!
I don’t even know how to start this review. I am freaking blown away by this book! Epic doesn’t even begin cover the journey of Feyre Cursebreaker across the Fae lands and into a world on the brink of war. She finds love in the most unexpected places and friends that will grow to family. As fights rage on, and the Hybern king finds allies, the people Feyre loves most are in danger.
Wow! Are you freaking kidding me? This has to be made into a move or a tv series or something. I want to sink into this world! The way the author creates such lush worlds and vivid characters is nothing short of spectacular.
Normally, when a book changes first person point of view between characters it loses me. I’ve left many books in the did not finish pile because of that issue. This story has one chapter where the point of view changes. It actually works. I think because it’s a brief glimpse into another character rather than their thoughts the whole way through the book. So, I’d tell you not to be put off by the switching point of views for its only one short chapter, a brief scene.
Feyre, I loved her from the beginning. She starts off weak and destroyed by the events in the first book. It felt very real how she dealt with the blood on her hands. As the story continues, she’s thrust into dangerous situations and becomes so much more than just Fae. Rhy, yeah, I liked him in the first book despite the darkness surrounding him. I’m so glad Feyre and Rhy have their own thing going on. I wouldn’t call it young adult appropriate, but if you’re an adult reading this series, you’re going to love it. Even the secondary characters, Mor, Cassian, Azriel, Nesta, every one of them has a personality of their own. Tamlin, oh my God, that twist with Tamlin. My mouth literally hung open when that ending came around. What a book! I have to read the next story, A Court of Wings and Ruin. Then I’m going to be stalking the author for the next release, lol.
Sarah J. Maas is an epic story teller and romance weaver. Nothing showcases her talents better than this must read series!
