A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
Publication Date: 2 May 2017 by Bloomsbury
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult
Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses (book #3)
Synopsis: 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. (Goodreads)
Why I’m looking forward to it: I’ve tried to keep it spoiler free but read at your peril! Right, so I’d be surprised if this upcoming release isn’t on most YA readers and bloggers’ TBR lists! Anyone who has read A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury will be on tenterhooks to find out what happens when Feyre returns to the Spring Court after all that happened during ACoMaF. I read A Court of Mist and Fury as soon as it came out last year (review here). I basically devoured it and it went straight to the top of my favourite YA fantasy series.
The Inner Circle – Rhysand, Mor, Cassian, Amren, and Azriel – was easily one of my highlights in AcoMaF. The characters were in-depth, distinct and the dynamincs between each was killer and had me wanting an Inner Circle of my own *sigh* so I’m definitely looking forward to the return of Mor’s cutting one-liners and Azriel’s broodiness. I’ m also super duper nervous about the ships that I’ve come to adore and it’s got me worrying about which of my ships will be endgame!
In AcoTaR and AcoMaF, Ms Maas also teased some of the wider world – the different Courts, the history of Prythian, and of course the motives of the King of Hybern so I’m really looking forward to finally (hopefully!) getting some long-awaited cameos from the other High Lords as well as some answers to my million burning quetions! The world building in ACoMaF in particular was phenomenal so I’m sure Sarah will not disappoint in this installment 🙂
I love that this book sees Feyre taking charge of her destiny, she’s really evolved as a character so it’ll be interesting to see what happens when she returns to the Spring Court and how things play out with some familiar faces (can’t say I’m not looking forward to more Lucien… hehe) Plus, with this being the final book in the series, I can’t wait to see how the final battle goes, I’m hoping it brings the whole of Prythian together and we get to see a certain character get the recognition he deserves…
