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.

Book bff has a love/hate relationship with SJM, and I kind of do too.

I love the worlds she creates, the way those worlds are steeped in folklore, the characters that worm their way into my heart and subconscious, but I LOVE hate the way she toys with my FEELS.

Kind of . . .

I love the way she weaves plot threads seamlessly together, the way every new installment is a true expansion of what came before, but I LOVE hate the way she wills dread into my very bones.

Sort of . . .

I love how even when she S P E L L S a thing out, I can’t stop myself from second-guessing, how even when I know something is going to happen, I’m still surprised when it does, but I LOVE hate the way getting from point A to point B so often leaves me in the fetal position.

But not really . . .

Me: Is a love/love relationship a thing?

You: It is now.

Damn right.

We’re a less than a week away from the release of what comes next in the ACOTAR world, but I’m going to keep what goes down in ACOWAR vague, b/c even though the main storyline is resolved, there is so much leftover potential.

At least two more installments, from varying POVs are on the books, but SJM could keep this world spinning indefinitely if given the license to.

And that’s a GOOD thing.

More Rhys and Feyre, for sure, but also more . . . Cassian and Nesta? Lucien and Elain? Tamlin and . . .? Azriel and Mor and Amren and Varian and Helion and, and . . . See?

So. Much. Potential.

And with the way things ended, I’m not only interested in comes for Tamlin (whom I spent a good 50 – 60% of this series despising), but I’m also way curious about View Spoiler »

So hats off to Sarah J. Maas for once again turning me into a quivering mass of nerves and making me happy about it. If you have yet to experience it for yourself, what are you waiting for? Hmm??

My name is Jessica and I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’m trying my hand at writing, but mostly I read. My favorite genres are Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and the YA versions of those genres, but if there is a book of a different color getting lots of buzz, I’ll read it too, just to be informed. If I’m not reading or writing, I’m probably on Goodreads or Pinterest or baking blueberry pies because I love them.

  1. Yes! I know exactly what you mean. I’m so ready to read this book – I feel like it’s been forever since I read Mist and Fury though, I’m hoping all the details will come back to me. Great review 🙂
