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.

My Review ( warning: Spoilers ahead!)

Finally finished reading this series ( including the novella A Court of Frost and Starlight) and seriously , by the end of it, I was in tears!!!

I wish I Could put more than 5 stars , that’s how much I LOVED it! There was never a dull moment throughout the book! Heartbreak, romance, steamy scenes, fight scenes, humor – just all around epic-ness! There were moments when I caught myself grinning wide…or mumbling “oh shit!” To myself😂😂 The characters were amazing (Cassian❣️) and the character development was satisfying .

Also, I freaking love it’s cover! The print is probably my favourite thing ever! A would in sheep’s clothing and I’m obsessed!

I loved every moment I spent in this extremely beautiful world that Sarah J Maas created! This series gave me the worst HANGOVER I’ve ever had! I’ve just completed reading ACOFAS And I’m inclined to reread the whole series!

This book got me hooked! I was walking while reading ( or reading while walking!) The whole ACOTAR series was BEAUTIFUL and just got more and more beautiful with every book! I’m glad it was a big book because I felt like I’ve been reading for Ages yet barely halfway through. I’m glad i decided to read this series! And this book…A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN , I actually loved this book – it is probably my favourite outta the series! This was just the read I needed (yes, needed!) and I’m eager to read what follows!

The adventures, the characters, the romance, the heart stopping scenes, oh! ACOWAR totally outdid ACOTAR and even ACOMAF! Never while reading this book had I felt like i was READING a book! I was so drowned in it that I felt like everything was happening with mee, like i was practically experiencing everything!

Feyre and Rhysand were, of course, the heart of the book through and through. Rhys Always treated Feyre as his equal, Always gave her a choice! It was he who helped Feyre bringing out her true potential. And when Rhys DIED, I just couldnt breathe! Couldnt believe!!! I was all tears and sobs… And I was relieved when everyone and finally Tamlin helped resurrecting Rhys! At that moment, I was like, ” How am I supposed to live now!?”

And also, let me tell you all that Tamlin was not as bad a s everyone thought. Though he was kinda unbearable sometimes, but it was he who saved Feyre from getting killed at the hands of King Of Hybern while saving Elain. And I really do think that he deserves a chance of amending his mistakes, must be forgiven by Feyre and Rhys because I felt like he was really sorry for all he did.

Leave this world a better place than how you found it.

Ah! These last words spoken by Suriel – the Dreamer! I Really believe that it was Suriel because of whom Prythian won the war. He was the one who told Feyre about the spell that Amren used to unleash herself. I cried and cried and cried when suriel died! He was so kind! Suriel risked his life to providing that information to Feyre. At the time he was shot by Ianthe, I was just murmuring,: ” please, please dont kill him!!! PLEASE!”

And Cassian, oh Cauldron! Cassian!!! I loved him even more than Rhys! My phone now autocorrects his name to caps lock… I guess it’s an indication enough of my love for him! He was the best! I am willing to really marry him! I liked him sooooo much! And the anticipation of deaths broke my heart! It nearly killed me when Nesta and Cassian went to divert king of hybern’s attention during war to enable Feyre and Amren reach the Cauldron and even Rhys said he wont survive…Thanks to Elain she killed the cruel king before he killed Cassian! At that time, I was praying ..” Cauldron, please! Kill anybody but my Cassian, please!!!”

I have no regrets in my life but this, that we did not have time. I didn’t have time with you, Nesta.

Aah! These lines! So full of emotions! I was really messed up while reading this part!

So, this book totally wrecked me! Kudos to Sarah J. Maas for creating such a BEAUTIFUL, enchanting world! Such an extraordinary, epic plot! There were hell lotta heart stopping scenes when tears didn’t stop welling in my eyes! This series was INCREDIBLE! The novella, ACOFAS too was amazing! And after reading the sneak peek from the forthcoming novel….oh! Cauldron boil me! How am I gonna wait for a YEAR for reading what happens next!? Reading about Cassian and Nesta ( who, i assume, will be the main characters in the forthcoming books!😍) I wanna know how the story ends but I dont want this story to end!
