Warning! Don’t read the synopsis if you haven’t read this book yet, spoilers ahead.
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 manoeuvrings 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.
This review has been long due but oh well, what can I do. I binge read this trilogy sometime this year and until now, it still is my favourite fantasy book series of 2018. Granted, I haven’t done that much reading just yet but I still have 9 months to catch up! Anyways, before I get distracted out of the topic, here we go.
In this final book of the trilogy, you do see a lot of questions answered as well as new ones crop up. The romance between Feyre and Rhysand continues to be really awesome and I just can’t get enough of them! The chemistry between the both of them and even the other couples is really strong and add the great writing (aka lots of quotable lines) and you have a book that will not let you sleep. I was literally up until 4am because I couldn’t fathom having to sleep not knowing what’s happening next. There were a few parts that got me sad as all heck but it ended a bit more happily so I lived through it lol.
For some reason this book didn’t quite feel as worthy of five stars as the second book though. The battle scene at the end of the book was awesome but at the same time I felt that it needed just a teeny bit more detail or build up? It’s probably just me though, just a personal preference. The ending also was less exciting than the previous two books but I’ll chalk it up to the closing of an old story arc and the opening of one.
I am sad that this particular story line is over but also excited to know that there will be more books set in this world because I AM NOT READY TO LEAVE! It will be like Harry Potter for me when all the books ended and we’re not really seeing any new story arcs that are turned into novels (or a series or two) *sad face*. I’ll definitely be picking up A Court of Frost and Starlight when it comes out this May though! I am super excited you guys.
That’s all for today! I don’t think I did a great job at writing down my thoughts cohesively but I hope it still is comprehensible. Any of you guys read this? What did you think? Also, are you planning to read the next novel or have you decided to be done with this story?

Lots of love,
