A magical and deadly start to a brilliantly crafted new series (Book Passion for Life on A Court of Thorns and Roses)
I loved it. Hands down the BEST new adult book I've ever read and my favourite of Maas's work (to date - I fully expect to be blown away by the next two books in this trilogy) (Winged Reviews on A Court of Thorns and Roses)
Sarah J. Maas is a master storyteller. Her writing is exquisite; her characters complex, flawed and endlessly relatable and worlds all-consuming - A Court of Thorns and Roses needs to be on your shelves (So Many Books, So Little Time)
A Court of Thorns and Roses was intense, captivating, sensual, and it will make you obsess over it (Escape Into Books)
Sexual tension and deadly action are well supported by Maas's expertly drawn, multidimensional characters and their nuanced interpersonal dynamics. A satisfying conclusion to the storyline leaves the door open for future books. Sexy and romantic (Kirkus Reviews on A Court of Thorns and Roses)
A gorgeously written tale as lush and romantic as it is ferocious. It's impossible not to be caught in Feyre's snare as her tremendous will and heart lead her on a journey through glimmering lands and into a terrifying, dark court of nightmares. Absolutely spellbinding (New York Times bestselling author Alexandra Bracken)

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's manoeuverings 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.

“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)
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.
This was a different ride to the two previous books in the series but it delivered. The focus was strategy and war which was complex but so cleverly plotted and written. I feel this book provided consistency in quality and didn't dip like some trilogies do at this point.
There is a lighter romantic touch to ACOWAR but the depth of love is solid, desperate and tangible. Feyre has been on such a journey as a character and what a woman she has become, a woman I admire and love as a favourite character. Rhysand was wonderful and the cast of strong side characters rocked this book, namely Nesta, Cassian and others. Dare I say, I both loved and feared some of the monsters in ACOWAR and cried over others. The creatures are described so skillfully that this is fantasy that has a 3D feeling.
I'm sad on the one hand that this first trilogy instalment is over, but I'm excited about who will feature in the next three. I have hopes about who will be the main characters, however I trust Maas to deliver. I will re-read without doubt.
This was an audio listen and I was worried about the narrator change but Amanda Leigh Cobb seamlessly slipped into the role which is admirable on book three. Great narration from start to finish.
