A Court of Wings & Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
As the third and final book in the ACOTAR series, ACOWAR is a pretty great ending to a beautiful series. While the first two books focused more on Feyre’s character development, this book was able to focus more on some of the secondary characters and developing additional pieces of the story – like giving us more detail about the other courts, which I was personally thrilled about! AND while Morrigan was definitely a badass in the first two books, we get the chance to get to know her better in this novel – just further cementing her place among epic female characters.
While this book didn’t give me quite the book hangover I had after finishing ACOMAF, (and let’s be honest, I’m still not over it), it’s overall a strong series and I felt satisfied about the way things got wrapped up. This is technically the last book in the series, but Sarah J. Maas has promised us that tales from Prythian aren’t finished – eeek! Not a whole lot of details yet on what or who these next tales might focus on but the next novel’s expected publishing date is 2018 and you can already add it to your goodreads queue.
After the ending to ACOMAF, you could expect there’d be a lot of action in this book, and you’d be right. The first two novels were a lead up to epic battle 2.0 between Prythian and Hybern so you know this book is going to be pretty dark and stormy. To get you in the right frame of mind, mix up a classic dark and stormy cocktail with a bit extra of Rhysand’s citrusy scent.
Goodreads 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.
