“Night Triumphant - and the Stars Eternal.
If he was the sweet, terrifying darkness, I was the glittering light that only his shadows could make clear.”
Now lets get to Rhysand...erm.. what can I even say? OH YES!! HE WAS AMAZING! I loved every single Rhys moment that we got to see and I just love him as a character and even though I didn't think that his character could be developed any more after reading ACOMAF, the way Maas wrote his development blew me away it was phenomenal. Now to all my other favourites, all I'm going to say is I adore them all especially Cassian and Azriel. Again it was pure perfection. Mor and Amren's character development also really went somewhere in this book, I never expected what happens to happen and I am still surprised and amazed at the great things that Sarah J. Maas did.
The plot was so action packed and there was always something happening it was so stressful but in a really really great way, I am so glad that we got to see loads more of the High Lords, that was brilliants and I loved the meeting, I am running out of words to use to describe how amazing things were.
I only had one tiny problem, I really wanted a discussion to happen between Tamlin and Feyre near the end after you know what (No spoilers here, see I am really trying), I just really needed more. Saying that I think that things were left in a great way and I really felt satisfied with the conclusion, and I also think that the way it ended really did justice to this amazing series. I am happy with Feyre and Rhysand's ending but I really hope that we get to see them again even if its just a cameo. They will always be some of my favourite characters of all time.
“It's a rare person to face who they are and not run from it - not be broken by it.”
I definitely ugly cried and I will never get over it. I will go as far to say that part of me died while reading this book. The feels were ridiculous and I have never ever cried like I did when I cried while I read this. I'm not sure where the series is going to go and which characters we will see again but I don't care I will read anything Sarah J. Maas writes and the fact that there is going to be more from this world is enough for me. But honestly do I have to wait another year, what will I do until then.
“I would have waited five hundred more years for you. A thousand years. And if this was all the time we were allowed to have... the wait was worth it.”
Overall I loved it and I'm not sure whether A Court of Mist and Fury is still my favourite or whether this one is but I loved them both, and this series has ruined me I have a feeling that I will never find anything as good as these, I am getting depressed just thinking about it. The only thing left to say is that I highly recommend this series, everyone should read it and I think that even if you don't enjoy the fantasy genre I would be extremely surprised if you didn't like this.
5/5 Stars! (Obviously)
With the King of Hybern armed with the Cauldron and imminent war on the way, Rhys must rally the remaining High Lords of Prythian to work together to protect their own courts and the mortal realm.
I devoured this book. I am addicted to this series now and I never thought Caraval would be bumped to second place but it has... Freya, Rhys, Cassian, Mor, Azriel and Amren have stolen my heart. The characters are so endearing, so loveable and you cannot help but be 100% devoted to them. The imagery throughout is vivid - you feel like you are living this story and you just don't want to come back from it.
There are so many amazing quotes I am taking away from this series, a prime example of Mor being "Don't let the hard days win" - for someone who has always battled with depression quotes like these really hit the core.
Prythian is my new favourite escape, specifically Velaris. I will dream of this world often and I know that it is only a few pages away.
Giving this every single star in the universe - that's how much I love it.
The love, the character development, the fierce loyalty, trying to guess who is truly onside and who might be a double agent, the unrequited love, the heartache, the friendship, the action, the SIDEQUESTS! Honestly there is so much going on in this book that there is never a dull moment.
I was awed by Feyre’s manipulating ways at the beginning of the book. It was skilfully plotted to the point that I was thinking “whose brain works like this??”
Rhys as always was noble, loyal, protective, serving, and giving to a fault, with Cassian, Azriel, and Mor showcasing much of the same traits. I felt so sorry for Lucien. And Azriel. And Tamlin! I’m still so torn over Tamlin.
For everything I was expecting from this book, I was NOT expecting to cry. But I did. More than once.
So many feelings! Just...ugh...just do yourself a favour and read the series.
This third book introduces all the players in the War. Not only has Feyre got to convince a host of High Lords to help her defeat Hybern's Army (which is HUGE!), but she's also got to somehow cover up that little thing about taking a bit of each of their powers for herself to make her some sort of super badass High Lady. Bit tricky. Oh and then there's the small issue of how she's just duped Tamlin and now kind of needs his army too. Terribly sticky situation for Feyre, but absolutely wonderful for us readers - so many new characters, each with excellent back stories (because we all know Maas is a Queen of a good back story woven in), and a particularly creepy Bone Carver and other vicious beasties she might want to get on side. I feel exhausted for them to be perfectly honest but it was delicious!
The characters really come to life in this book with even more complexity than ever before. Whilst I still feel that Mist and Fury really excelled at challenging traditional characters, breaking the mould and generally being a massive improvement on Feyre's badassery, I think this book makes the slightly more secondary characters more exciting. Cassian, Azriel, Mor, Amren, Nesta and Elain get much bigger parts in this story and I really fell in love with each of them rather than just being wrapped up in Feyre and Rhys' situation. I think Maas is really excellent at making you become entirely invested in characters, even those who might seem quite detached from the initial story-line. It makes for such rich world building and I absolutely love it. I can't think of another group of characters in a book who have felt quite so real to me.
This is a bit of a slow burner compared to the previous two books, and given that it's largely focused on finding High Lords and Armies, I think that's probably why. But when the War truly begins, wow - that's fastest my eyes have ever moved across a page! The writing is utterly unstoppable; I felt like I was watching it all happen. It's that bum on the edge of your seat kind of good where you just can't predict which curve-ball is coming at you next. Equally, there are some darker elements which are so exciting and genuinely a little bit chilling. I think this element of Maas' stories is often underrated because her characters are so addictive and often take centre stage, but it was a real tension builder in this book - not to be read in a dark, shadow-filled room though.
I still struggle a little with the romance elements. Not the building of a romance; I think Maas is brilliant at leaving me wanting more in terms of waiting to see what's going to happen between characters. Particularly after Feyre having such a swift change of heart with Tamlin - you just never know what's going to happen and who she'll turn you against! But now that Feyre and Rhys are mated, the sexual tension has kind of fizzled out (despite there being lots of sex) and the sexy scenes for me are really awkward. I think it's the choice of words she sometimes uses like being "claimed" or "branded" that just destroy it for me. It's really obtuse and a bit too yuck for me. But anyway, Cassian saves the day on the romance front - what a heart-throb. Gone are the days when Rhys was my future book boyfriend - Cassian and Azriel are like some sort of heroic Godly duo aren't they?
Definitely a nice finish to the first three books, with lots of elements wrapped up and plenty more still to come. I can't wait for the next one.
Alas, Amren still gives me the heebyjeebies! So creepy.
So on May 2nd, after much hmm-ing and ahh-ing, I took the night off work due to A Court of Wings & Ruin’s release day. This is the first time I’ve ever taken a day off work just so I can binge read a book, but boy am I glad I did. First off, it’s the first ever conclusion Sarah J Maas has ever written and published. I was nervous. I was terrified. I was giddy, ecstatic but it was all completely overshadowed by impending doom.
How do I feel about this series, after eighteen hours of straight up reading? (It would’ve been shorter, but I kid you not, I had to put the book down a few times and go outside and breathe the fresh air and thank the Lord I am alive. Also the dog always seemed to need to pee whenever I got to the exciting parts.) How do I feel after feeling every feeling possible in such a short space of time? When I finished ACOWAR, I went to bed and slept for thirteen hours straight, so there’s your first clue.
I am destroyed.
This post is going to be long. It’s going to be messy. It’s uncensored word vomit straight after reading the book, so I hope you don’t expect to read a masterpiece because you ain’t getting one. I am obliterated. Sarah can write one hell of a finale.
A Court of Wings & Ruin begins pretty much straight after A Court of Mist & Fury. Feyre is in the Spring Court as a secret agent, gathering information on Tamlin and his plans to join the King of Hybern in the War. For those of you who may have forgotten, the King of Hybern wants to destroy the wall seperating the Fae realms and the human world, invade, and take back what he believes is rightfully the fae’s.
Fun fact: I’d completely forgotten why Hybern was the bad guy, and why we were supposed to hate Jurian until the characters rehashed the plot of ACOMAF.
I loved the scenes in the Spring Court and am absolutely gutted that we didn’t get more. Once the Hybern twins arrive, thousand year old warriors who fought in the Great War, it all goes tits up. I love, love, loved Feyre conniving against Tamlin by semi-convincing him she’s sleeping or at least sexually interested in Lucien. I loved how she put on the mantle of Feyre the Cursebreaker and practically made herself a saint so Ianthe lost all credibility. THAT SCENE, YOU GUYS. THAT SCENE DESTROYED ME. It reminded me why I loved Feyre in A Court of Mist & Fury. Because she has brains, and she is not afraid to use them. I was living for Feyre’s and Rhysand’s shortlived communication when she updated him on the plans. Every time he said, “When are you coming home?” I DIED INSIDE.
For a heartbeat, I pitied him.
Pitied that not only Lucien had lied to him, but Alis as well. How many others had seen the truth of my suffering– and tried to spare him from it?
Seen my suffering and done nothing to help me.
