A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas

Saturday, May 13th 2017

Before I start this review can we all just give a digital round of applause to the wonderful and talented artist Charlie Bowater for having her artwork of Rhysand and Feyre become the inspiration for A Court of Wings and Ruin book cover!

I could not see Feyre and Rhysand any other way than the way Charlie Bowater illustrated them!
Now back to the book review…

I am finally ready to talk about Sarah J. Maas recent addition to  A Court of Thrones and Roses book series, A Court of Wings and Ruin!

I love Sarah J, Maas, and her series A Court of Thrones and Roses. It’s a great series especially if you’re already familiar with Maas’s other series, Throne of Glass. If you’re not formillar with Sarah J. Maas my first question to you is. What are you waiting for! You need to stop reading this review and get to reading the books! You need to read the books now! Right now! Seriously stop reading this post and go read a book now!

Sarah J. Maas what the hell was up with page 666! Did she plan that? She must have planned that. There is no way someone can just write that scene without making a note that this page should be the mark of death for a beloved character!

If plot twist didn’t straighten itself out I was about to sell all my books and blog in a flash. Yes, it was that serious! Thankfully the plot didn’t iron itself out!

Even though A Court of Wings and Ruin is much shorter than A Court of Mist and Fury, which I must confess is my favorite book of the entire series so far, there are many dazzling character development, plot scene, character relationship building, breaking, only to be rebuilt again! Not to mention there were scenes that you just made your heart splinter for you’re favorite characters.


View Spoiler »Also, does anyone else get the feeling that Feyre’s sister Elain is going to ignore the mating bond between her and Lucien in favor of Az? I really hope so. I undestand how powerful the mating bond is between to High Fae, we have Feyre and Rhysand for that. I just feel that Az is more understanding to Elain’s needs that Lucien could ever be. I use to read A Court of Thornes and Roses to make sure Rhysand would have a happy ending, now I’m hoping that Az gets the same type of happy ending he deserves.

The Shadowsinger needs love! Maas! Please give the Shadowsinger the love he so desperately needs! I’m even more excited on the fact that Ryhsand and his Brothers nor Feyre and her Sisters were harmed nor killed during the making of A Court of Wings and Ruin, the way this book was twist and turning I thought someone was going to die. Page 666 truly shocked me since the person who actually died was not who I was expecting to die. A Court of Wrath and Ruin had a lot of near death experiences for the friendly family group of A Court of Dreams. Lucky no favorite, nor loved characters were harmed beyond the wisdom of a great certain great healer. Wink, Wink.

I mentioned it before that I love A Court of Must and Fury, so far it is my favorite of all of Sarah J. Maas books even  her other series Throne of Glass. I could re-read A Court of Must and Fury over and over again, A Court of Wrath and Ruin, not so much. I feel that this book, A Court of Wings and Ruin feels like the glue connecting between A Court of Must and Fury and A Court of ??? and ???.

I love this series, I love Rhysand. I love the motto of The Court of Dreams. I love the relationship between Feyre and her mate Rhysand. I feel that they both have endured so much, I’m more than thrilled to have the boook close with Feyre and Rhys flying over Velaris  Which by the way, is Feyre flying over Velaris wearing nothing but a red sheer lingerie.

If you don’t already know this book earns all 5 stars with me. The five stars aren’t automatically give because the author is of course the amazing Sarah J. Maas. The reason this books earns 5 stars is heavily due to the growth each character has shown towards itself and to their relationship towards other. The dynamic relationship between Rhysand and his brothers to Feyre and her sisters is not only dazzling to watching but extremely heart felt to witness as a reader!
