Title: A Court of Wings and Ruin (ACOTAR #3)
Author: Sarah J. Maas

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.

This book was every I wanted it to be! Main flaw: it has bible pages! They’re so thin! I was actually looking forward to having a huge book on my shelf, but now it’s as thin as ACOTAR.
The first thing I need to discuss: My favorite thing about this book is the Courts. I love the different Courts and the High Lords! I don’t think I’ve ever been more in love with a world.
That’s one aspect of this book that really added to the everything else, and I was actually upset that I had to leave this world!
Excellent character progression! I loved Nesta’s and Elain’s development! And Morrigan! I love her so much!
I liked how the different relationships played a part, but wasn’t forefront. It gave way to other things. I’m excited how those will go in the next three books.
The plot was never boring, and was perfectly paced. Just enough loose ends to lead up to the next book!
I did want to take a moment and discuss the ‘homophobic’ excerpt that some people were complaining about.
At first glance, I can see how this would be seen as offensive.
But if you read the whole chapter, it takes on a new meaning.
Feyre is talking about twins (a boy and a girl) who are complete monsters. They also work for Hybern. There is nothing redeeming about them, and again, they are siblings. So if you read that again in this context, it’s completely different.
Honestly, I didn’t look up the chapter excerpt until after I finished the book. I wanted to see if I’d notice it. And I didn’t.
I’m so over people hating on S.J. Maas. If you don’t like her writing, then don’t read it. Don’t go spreading unnecessary hate, or bashing the author. Or, as above, jumping to conclusions.
This is an amazing end to the ACOTAR trilogy, and I cannot wait to get back into the world with the next book!
