Title: A Court of Wings and Ruin
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: YA Fantasy
Synopsis: A nightmare, I’d told Tamlin. I was the nightmare.
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.
I was literally shaking as I finished this book at 3:30am last night. So overwhelmed by emotions, I didn’t know what to do with myself as I lay staring into the darkness for the next few hours. I could see the characters of the book in each song that came on through my headphones. I have read a lot of books in my life and NEVER have I been affected by one as much as this.
Sarah J. Maas sweeps from ACOMAF into ACOWAR flawlessly. I was worried that I wouldn’t love this one as much as I loved the last one but I DON’T EVEN KNOW! A Court of Wings and Ruin gave us a glimpse into many more of the courts of Prythian and introduced some fantastic new characters! It kept me on the edge of seat, toes curled and heart frantic for at least half of it, with no breaks, while the other half was filled with cunning, growth and companionship.
The bond between the Inner Circle only grew stronger, and I think I could be content to read about this group, my favourite characters, for the rest of my life without ever tiring of them. While they remained the same quirky, fun-loving, characters we grew to adore in the last book, they all seemed to individually grow, and shine that much more. Amidst the war with Hybern, it became even more evident why they are called The Court of Dreams. Immaculate displays of love and hope through sacrifice tore my heart into shreds, yet wove it together anew at the same time. I didn’t think it was possible for my love for this series, these characters, this world, to grow anymore, but grow it did.
Rhys and Feyre are officially the OTP that trumps all of my other OTPs. This book was absolutely incredible, and I’m going to need a solid few days of recovery from it at the very least! I already know that there will be many rereads to come, because I can’t picture my future without this amazing series in it. I can’t wait for the series continuation with new characters (though I wish it was still the old ones)!!!
It was so hard to keep this review spoiler free since there are so many glorious things I wanted to express to you all!! If you haven’t already, go pick it up quickly so you can get in on the magic that is a world created by Sarah J. Maas.
