This book was so good I devoured it. I just couldn’t stop reading it and I loved it. The only complaint I have is that the pages are so thin. Like hi no I want a thick book with nice pages (not that the pages aren’t nice but ya’know). This book was fast paced and I’m really happy that it ended up being a total of 705. I know this is the last book with Feyre and Rhysand as the main characters but I cannot wait for the novellas to come out next year!
I’ve made this review 100% spoiler free for this book in the series but if you haven’t read the first 2 books I would recommend against reading this review.
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 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.
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.
I originally planned for this review to be relatively short but uh that didn’t really work out in the long run. Oops.
I’m going to start off with the only things I didn’t really like in this book, and even those faults are minor in the grand scheme of the book. To me, this book felt like a draft and it just seemed a little rushed after Feyre left the spring court. This didn’t last long though and from there I felt that some scenes were really cringy and out of character. This only made me pause once or twice so after that it wasn’t really an issue.
Now, I loved so so much about this book (basically the whole thing tbh) and I’m really happy about the ending. This book lived up to many of the hopes I had and brought up things I hadn’t even thought about. This book, while the end of the trilogy about Feyre and Rhysand, made readers eager for the coming novellas.
In this book, Feyre only continued to make my love for her grow. She is such a strong woman and her relationship with Rhys is one to be admired. The way Rhys treats her is such an upgrade from how Tamlin the tool treated her and if anything, he only shows more kindness in this book (if that’s even possible). I really loved all their interactions in this book and really hope I will find out what happens to them in the coming novellas.
I loved reading about the inner circle and Feyre’s sisters in this book. It was really interesting to see the outcome of being turned by the Cauldron and how that changed their relationship with Feyre and the humans. I won’t say much else on the sisters but I will say that the inner circle only continues to amaze me. Each member of the group is so interesting to read about and I hope they will make an appearance in the coming books.
If you didn’t notice I basically just want to read a novella about these characters to see what happens to them after this book. Of course, I know that the novellas will not be told from Feyres point of view anymore but I still hope I’ll see her and Rhys.
I will continue to recommend this trilogy to anyone interested in fantasy. I will admit that the first book may be hard to get through but it only gets better from there (I mean ACOMAF is basically my favorite book in the universe right now so that’s a thing). As I’ve mentioned in past reviews (ACOTAR and ACOMAF) , these books may not be the best for young teens but everyone knows their own maturity and should decide whether or not to read the books based on that.
