After finishing this one, I was a bit lost. That one scene towards the end was a shock! Still, I don´t know what to think of it, but with the next book in line already on my shelf, I am sure I will soon find out. A Court of Wings and Ruin might not be the bright and romantic novel the other two books had been (at least not in a certain way), but its story wasn´t less written in the typical Sarah J. Maas style. Beautiful fantasy combined with great figures.

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 my 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. 
Feyre becomes more and more the High Lady, Rhysand has made her. But being at the Spring Court again and acting as if she would be back with Tamlin, is harder and not as promising as she´d hoped. And with the knowledge, that her two sisters are with Rhysand and being not very well, the situation becomes strange. What powers will the develop and when will she know and see it?

The atmosphere is muted. The upcoming war and the change between the separate Courts have brought an almost numb feeling into the story. And yet you can see and feel every brutal or cruel scene, the dark setting in the mountain and the looming fight between the High Fae and the mainland.

The change Feyre has gone through, to see how she becomes what she was in the end, that was very impressive. She stayed true to herself but acted on instinct when she had to and gave her part as High Lady a new meaning.

The way how Sarah J. Maas has given her a very profound and strong character and the instinct to feel compassion for others when needed – beautiful. 

No doubt, it was a wonderful read. But it didn´t quite thrill me the same way as the second book has managed to do. Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable read and after that end, I NEED to know how the story continues. 

Happy reading
