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.
Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world torn apart.
About the book
A Court of Mist and Fury is the second book in Sarah J. Maas’ series started with A Court of Thorns and Roses reviewed a few weeks ago on the website. If you have not read the first book please do not read further, I have to write some events from the previous book to write this review.
Feyre's survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price ...
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre's presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
About the book
A Court of Thorns and Roses is the first book in a trilogy series named as the first book by Sarah J. Mass. It’s a retelling of the Beauty and the Beast and that’s what attracted me the first time.
It is set in a fantasy world. This lend is called Prythiam and the world is divided in 7 courts, plus a small piece of land where human are confined.
We follow Feyre’s story, a 19-year-old girl who goes hunting quite often, to help her family, father and two sisters. In fact, the mother passed away when she was very young and on her deathbed Feyre promised to take care of the remaining family. Now, why a mother makes an 8-year-old daughter promise that, I don’t know, but that’s what guides the girl in her life. Shortly after the woman’s death, the father makes the wrong investments and loose everything, forcing the family to live in poverty and misery. This is why Feyre hunts, for the sustenance of the family. During one of these hunts, she kills a wolf which was about to eat her food (a deer). Once killed the wolf, she manages to kill the deer and feed her family for several days. But unfortunately, the wolf is not a normal wolf, it is a magical creature and one night after Feyre sells the fur of the two animals, earning a lot of money for her family, another magical creature breaks into her modest home and wants her in place of the wolf’s life (and his friend), because this is the Treaty that humans and the Fae have (a life for a life). Treaty signed many years before, when there was a war between humans and the Fae, which ended with the liberation of the human world and its confinement in the earth to the south of an invisible wall that divides the two worlds.
All my book reviews are and will be 100% honest. I don’t get paid to write them and I don’t get “gifts” to write a good review so what I write is what I think. If I love a book, I’m going to say that, if I don’t like a book, I will write why I don’t. My critics aren’t an attack to the author, they are just how I feel about a subject or a style.
