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.

The anticipation leading up to the release of this book was almost unbearable, but it's here (finally) and it does not disappoint. Without giving too much away, these are the things I will say: This is a long one! I was trying to finish this in a timely manner without skipping over anything, but it was hard to do. At over 600 pages and many loose ends to tie up there is a lot happening. (And, yes, there is closure for the series and the characters at the end.) Each character remains true to themselves, although several wear masks along the way that will have you screaming, livid, and torn. New characters are brought into play, but are necessary for the final war that this series has been leading up to, so don't ignore their presence. Rhys. Rhys. Rhys. He still smolders. And always remains a step ahead of everyone. Feyre remains fierce. Independant, while completely devoted to not only her mate but her family, friends, people, cause. If you have a heart, you will shed tears, for both devastatingly sad and satisfying moments.

I have no words to describe how this book was wrecked me time and time again. Surprises lay around every corner, bring me to tears at many turns, and making me jump with joy at others. If I could rewind and read it all for the first time again, I would.

Read all the book. Cried all the tears. IT WAS AMAZING!!! Some of the twists I saw coming, others I definitely wasn't ready for. I'm already beyond excited for the next one ?

This series has been one of the best I've ever read. Sarah J Maas gave me everything I needed and everything I didn't know I needed in this installment. I read this book within 2 days, (I decided to sleep), and was unable to willingly put it down for a moment. I recommend not only this series but all of Sarah's writing. It will change your outlook on fictional writing. Sarah has taken story telling to a completely new level, that readers and the literature industry have been starving for. I cannot wait to read the next installment!

I highly recommend everyone to read this book. I was not a big fan of fantasy, but my great friend urged me to read the series. The first book was empowering and left so many questions unanswered that I needed more content; so I began reading the second book. Which made my heart burst into tiny pieces. It was romantic, funny, and intense. The third book was a work of art. Filled with revenge plots and is written with an intense tone. I finished the book in tears! Never has book made me feel so emotional with happiness, anger, and saddness. The ending gave me closure. It's perfect in all aspects. Read this book. You will not regret it.

Love the characters in this book and the pace. It's a fun and easy read, very entertaining. If you liked this first two, this is a nice wrap up and leaves things open for more.

Let me preface my comments by saying, I have read this series twice and have really enjoyed it. My concern is that there is a fair amount of very graphic sex in this series of books that should keep them from being classified as young adult and marketed to teens. Would you be willing to read this aloud to your mom?

To act as a spy, and to begin plotting revenge, Feyre allows herself to return to the Spring Court with Tamlin, and his deceptive priestess, Ianthe. But Feyre will learn to become the wolf, in this and all courts, and especially in the imminent, great battle against Hybern. Unlikely alliances are begrudgingly forged as all courts meet to discuss battle with their great enemy, and surprises abound on the final dramatic battlefield. A Court of Wings and Ruin is the culmination of the great war that has been building up for the last two novels, and the satisfying answer to what the mighty, secret abilities are within ancient beings, including Amren, as well as displaying all the powers that Feyre is truly capable of wielding.

I've been a book worm all of my life - a very picky one, too - and I absolutely love this series! The author was able to make me feel things through her writing as the MC and the other characters experienced them. Each character in this story is well thought-out and executed! The pacing was good, the battles were gory with just enough left to the imagination, and she once more has left her book on an excellent note! The arc of the book was completed; but, there were still people in need of saving, peace between races and kingdoms to be built, and love to be grown between some of my personal favorite characters. Like any good dinner it left me satisfied, but ready for pie! The villain was great, not just an empty name with an ominous sound effect following it. The heros and heroins were all people, they had strengths and flaws - REAL FLAWS! Not "I'm so ugly wahwahwah blahblahblah" flaws. I'm dying to read the next installment in May! A Court of Snow and Starlight is what it's called, I think. I love this series so much I have all 3 books in Hardback and I've re-read them all 3 times now! This book - and it's predecessors - are more than worth your time and money.

I kept looking at the first book and was like... nah.. not really my thing. But I needed something to read in between series and I decided to get A Court of Thorns and Roses. Let me tell you I could NOT put it down! The way Maas brings her characters to life had me dreaming about what was to come. If you are looking for a great series that will make you believe you are in another world. Then this is the series for you! Now to wait for the next book in this series and the Assassins Blade series.

Going into the finale of Feyre’s story arc, I was hyped up as much as everyone has been about what could happen in this installment. I had high hopes which meant high expectations. I knew that it was going to be hard to beat A COURT OF MIST AND FURY because that one was so incredibly good and ripped emotions all the emotional stability I had when I began the book. Unfortunately, I did not think that A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN measured up. That being said, it was a good story. I just don’t think that it was as amazing as ACOMAF was. I will be quick about the positives. First, I loved the sass and banter. It was A+ and made me laugh aloud. The Inner Court is just full of wit and sarcasm and it makes me happy. Rhysand, oh Rhysand. He can do no wrong in my eyes. He was just the perfect amount of delightful, sassy, seductive, and ever-so wonderful. I don’t think that there was much development for him throughout this book (ACOMAF was the most character development I saw from him), but nevertheless, he really did remain one of my favorite characters. I felt as though his character took a slight backseat to Feyre and the rest of the story itself, but again – I love Rhysandand just want a whole book about him and just him. Actually, all the male characters made me pretty happy. Cassian and Azriel made my heart hurt. Lucien was a surprise, particularly because I did not care much for him in the first two books. Despite his lack of presence in ACOWAR, I have a feeling that the next three books will emphasize his story in a large way. Maas leaves a lot to be desired in matters of tying up loose ends and there are a lot of loose ends in the Courts – loose ends that I am very sad to have to wait to find out where they will lead in the next arc of ACOTAR. I really thought that Nesta was bombdiggs. I was not a fan of hers in the beginning, but I loved that she was a badass and took no prisoners in this one. Amongst the female characters, she grew the most and I do like that Maas is choosing to use her character to demonstrate a different female character altogether. She was just so kickass. Looking back now, I really do love the way that Maas writes her characters’ and their stories. I am all for complex character and different perspectives. Sure, there were some shortcomings in certain characters that I thought could have been handled better (coughMorrighancough), but there’s only so much to expect from a writer whose work you have followed for so long. You get used to the way they write characters and stories. Sarah J. Maas is certainly someone with a huge fanbase, but she is certainly not an author who appeals to everyone. I will add a side note that I felt like there were too many characters. In ACOMAF, the characters in the Inner Court seemed to have a purpose and their own purposes. In ACOWAR, there were too many stories to tell and keep up with that I felt like Maas’s commitment to them fell to the wayside in favor of the setup for the next arc. My biggest issue with ACOWAR was the last third of the book. It took me a while to get through the book overall (I could not speed read it and had it spread over a little over a week). There was a moment in the middle of it that I thought things really picked up for the characters and the action, but then there was just so much that I feel Maas wanted to pack in that it made for a slightly sloppy resolution by the end.
