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.
Ok, can we just talk about Cassian and Nesta for a minute? Golly, where the hell did that intense attraction come from? They may have edged out Feyre darling and Rhysand for best couple in this series. I wanted to hate Nesta, I really did. She’s just so bitter and cold to everyone, except of course Elain. But then there are times where you see her and you understand why she acts the way she does. I have a love/hate relationship with Nesta, more love than hate though.
Elain acted exactly how I thought she would, it kinda mirrored Feyre but on a smaller level. Feyre’s family really had a big role in this story and it refreshed it and brought a whole new layer into it. Because we are in the last book and usually things just kinda flow the way you think they would but then this whole other element with Fayre’s family gets involved and you start to think, “Where did this come from?” But then, it all comes together and you think, “Jeez, this author is brilliant for intertwining this story so perfectly with her family” How did I not see this coming?!?!?!?!?!?
And who saw Mor going the direction she went? I was shipping her and Azriel since I met them! This book was able to tie up all loose ends AND then some! How on earth did I not see the ending coming? I mean, their father? Really? I was flabbergasted with his role. I cried so hard at the end of this book its not even funny. There’s only been three other books that made me ugly cry that hard. (You should know who you are and if you don’t it’s Parting Chances by Caylie Marcoe, Fractured Suns by Theresa Kay and The Five Stages of Falling in Love by Rachel Higginson)
This one really focused on Feyre’s family and the bringing everyone together for the common good. I really thought her father was a lost cause so when he was mentioned a few times I thought to myself he was gonna play some heavy role, when in fact he didn’t. Color me surprised when he played a secondary supporting role which actually made so much sense I don’t know why I didn’t see it coming.
And Lucien’s role was much less prominent than I expected it to be as well. Just another reason this author turned the tables on her readers in such a delightful way. I can’t get enough of her. I’m trying to figure out if I want to reread this series again or if I want to start her other series. For those of you that read them both, which one do you think I should read. Now I just need to convince Lenore and Kelly to read this so we can all fan-girl the fuck outta this series together.
