ACOWAR | A Court of Wings and Ruin Review!

“When you erupt, girl, make sure it is felt across worlds.”  – Sarah J Maas



Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s plans and the invading king threatening to destroy Prythian. 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 High Lords and hunt for allies that they would never expect.

I wasn’t sure if I would love this third book more than the second, however it delivered. Sarah J Maas is brilliant at writing complex characters with amazing history and each with their own stories to tell. Lucien, Nesta, Azriel, Elain, Mor, Rhys, Amren, Cassian and even Tampon (make myself laugh) all have their own unique personality and you learn how all of them have become that wayFeyre’s character has grown amazingly throughout these three books, from having a sense of low-worth to finally forgiving herself for the actions she has taken to save Prythian.



What Sarah J Maas did really well within these books is describing the feelings and thoughts that people actually go through in life. Including those such as surviving abuse, a form of trauma, anxiety etc. To read about characters who have been pushed to their limits, suffering mentally and physically, yet manage to fight for one another to survive was truly wonderful. I read these books while I was struggling personally and can safely say that Sarah gave me a true reason to carry on through each day.

I cannot thank her enough for that.


  • Velaris Crew. (sorry has the be all of them) The family of folks in were so close, witty and would literally do ANYTHING for each other.  Which gave me a little warm fire in my cold, cold heart. (joking, I like to think I’m alright)
  • Rhysand AGAIN. I don’t care, I love him. JUDGE ME ALL YOU WANT.
  • Suriel. Sassy. I loved how you needed to capture him to even ask him questions and then then he would LOVE to tell Feyre some gossip, but not enough so she would still have questions. Even at the end when he was waiting for her ‘I GOT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING GURL.’

Two things I had a SLIGHT problemo with…

(Nothing to do with anything Sarah J Maas wrote) But online the speculation and the THOUGHT of Elain becoming mates with Tamlin because she likes gardening and flowers did not sit right with me. I didn’t see how this would work, especially with the way he treated Feyre (she would defo NOT let Elain go there). And I liked the thought of  Elain sticking with the rest of the family as WHO WOULDN’T. I would take up that offer like it was nobodies BIZZ-NIZZ.

With Rhysand (hello) being the powerful High Lord, you wouldn’t have guessed that in battle. I wanted to read about how much he was KICKING ASS. Which was lacking especially in the last fight, it’s a personal problem that I found but I love a good battle scene in film and books. However, I did appreciate his powers in the meeting of the High Lords, when he basically told Tamlin TO SHUT HIS PRETTY MOUTH.


I cannot wait for the next installment of this series, it is and has been amazing. The characters will stick with me forever. I’m getting all serious now aren’t I, gross. I believe that Sarah J Maas really thinks of her readers while she is writing her stories, creating characters, places and storylines that seriously play with dem emotions. I was NOT stable while reading these (in a good way) and even now while I will wait for the next novel I will feel like I am waiting FOREVER.

As the internet says,

Thankyou, A Court of Pain and Feels.

  1. *whispers* but Elain is mates with Lucien.. ? And Tamlin the Tool can go right back into the hole he came from. Damn him. Though I am nervous to see where ELain and Azriel’s relationship is going… or better, between Lucien, ELain and Az. What did you think about those three?

    1. I totally missed the part where I was supposed to mention how it was a speculation online about them being together! 😂 But even the thought of anyone being with that guy just makes me nervous! Exactly! I’m wondering what will happen between those three, will Elain choose one or neither?! She must just say ‘nuhuh! I don’t want no mate!’ would be a twist if anything!

      1. ohhhh, I haven’t heard about that one. Hopefully not!! Ugh, I personally go slap SJM with the book if that ever happens (I won’t, but I guess you get what I want to say) 😀 It would be actually great if Elain would be like “nah, I don’t want any of you” but that would not be typical for SJM, she somehow likes to pair everyone off.. so I think Elain has to choose someone? Maybe?


      2. Yeah she will maybe have to choose! Which will definitely be interesting, it will be nice to read about them all again! I haven’t read Throne of Glass yet so that will probably have me loving SJM even more I’m guessing?! 😁
