Overall thoughts: A Court of Wings and Ruin is literally the perfect ending to a book series, but the best part? It’s not! The world of A Court Of Thorns and Roses is continuing on! Which is fantastic because A Court of Wings and Ruins was great but left a lot of unanswered questions, but we will discuss that later in this review. For now let’s discuss the heart and soul of this amazing book: Feyre.
I’ll start with Feyre because I’ll be honest, I have a girl crush on her. Feyre is such an amazing character because if you compare her from where she was in book one, AKA A Court Of Thorns And Roses to now, A Court Of Wings and Ruins…the character development is just out of this world. I have read a book that included a character that grew as much as Feyre did; sure she went through a lot of heartbreaking and horrible experiences but honestly that made root for her! Every time Feyre stood up for herself and her family in A Court Of Wings and Ruin I literally wanted to stop reading and just cheer for her. It was SO empowering and Feyre is the type of heroine that every young teenager going through something horrible needs to read about, heck Feyre is the character EVERYONE needs to read about when they are having a hard time. She will forever be one of my favorite characters and I’m excited for the future of the A Court Of Thorns And Roses book series because I am sure she will only continue to grow and be amazing.
Story wise A Court Of Wings And Ruin has A LOT of ground to cover and finish up. Feyre and Rhysand were apart last time we saw them in A Court Of Mist And Fury, Prythian is on the verge of war, Lucian announced that Elain (Feyre’s sister) is his mate, Nesta (Feyre’s other sister) and Cassian have this weird dynamic going on that is interesting and confusing, did I mention that Prythian was about to be invaded and um, hello…war! Honestly I was a bit concerned because the way everything ended, there was STILL a lot of unanswered questions and no spoilers, but what happened towards the end of A Court Of Wings And Ruin brought up even MORE questions. Thankfully the series will continue on in a novella releasing May 1st, 2018 A Court Of Frost And Starlight that will hopefully wrap up the loose ends and be the platform for more books in this series. Which has been confirmed so get excited people!
Overall I loved A Court Of Wings And Ruin and I think for the most part was the perfect ending to the first three books in this series.
