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 manoeuvrings 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.
About the book
A Court of Wings and Ruin is the third book in the Sarah J. Maas’ series, A Court of Roses and Thorns. It is the final chapter, although there will be other books after this. We returned to the Spring Court after the events of the previous book and Feyre is weaving her plot to bring down Tamlin and the King of Hybern.
What I think
I have to say that I was scared at first. Usually I don’t like undercover missions and I didn’t really like the ending of the previous book when I learned about Feyre’s mission. But I must say that this “mission” lasted for about 100 pages and then I relaxed.
I don’t like the language the author uses, however, and the style… The sentences in half with the suspension points and then not finish the concept as if I had to understand from what she writes what she meant (which rarely happens).
The ending is nice but nothing special and above all predictable. I don’t regret reading the series but in some places Feyre is just unbearable. Furthermore, there are no gray characters, or rather there are only the good Rhysand and the bad Tamlin. Feyre is the only good one and her family is so unbearable just to make us feel sorry for the main character.
I didn’t like it when Rhysand allies with the Nightmare court even though he knows that this hurts Mor. In addition, the author tells us that Rhys is the most powerful High Lord of all the courts, but we are not shown why, she doesn’t show anything, we are only told certain facts, but never how these facts occur.
So concluding, the series is nice, I had high expectations that unfortunately the books didn’t fulfill and although I liked the first two books (although, again, I must say that after reading the second one, I found the first practically useless – see review of the second volume) the conclusion did not live up to my expectations. Therefor, I will not continue with the series when it comes out.
