Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

A nightmare, I’d told Tamlin. I was the nightmare.
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. 


I've seen mixed reviews for this book but I really enjoyed it. My dislike for Tamlin has been no secret so it shouldn't surprise anyone that I thoroughly enjoyed Feyre's sabotage of the Sprint Court. I loved how she stole Ianthe's thunder! I felt bad (a little) for Lucien because because there was somewhat of a friendship kindling between him and Feyre, but he stood by and let Tamlin wreck her which I had a hard time forgiving him for. However, one of my FAVORITE parts of the entire book involved him. When he and Feyre loosed the Boggart on the awful twins from Hybern's court, I straight up cackled! The pacing of the book was consistent and I didn't find myself bored or having to slough through any parts. I seriously couldn't be parted with my book and it went everywhere with me, which should be a testament to how much I loved it because my copy was a 700 page hard back. My initial though upon completing the trilogy was that book 1 could have been condensed down into a few chapters of flashback. Out of the 3 books, ACOTAR is my least favorite. In fact, if I ever decided to revisit this world, I will probably just reread Feyre's time under the mountain (it'd be nice to read those parts knowing now what I do about Rhysand) before diving back into book 2. I'm so glad I sucked it up and finished book 1 because books 2 and 3 were just so amazing!
