So far the most action packed of the four books in this series, full of unexpected surprises and . heart wrenching moments. With the world on the verge of war Ferye and Rhysand must find unusual allies that will aid them in their pursuit of peace.

Once again I'll begin by pointing out that this book is often in the Teen section of the library and between people having their heads removed and the graphic sex scenes, this falls firmly into YA, emphasis on the "A." While the sex in the second book was steamy too, by this one I was wishing Maas could find some other words. I don't think I'll be able to read the word "worship" or "feast" again without a little ick. So I've again used up a lot of space analyzing sex.

The rest of the book is, once again, brilliant. We're never sure who is good or bad or anyone's true motives. Watching Feyre grow into her powers continues to be intriguing and entertaining. Maas could take a page from George RR Martin and be willing to kill off some main characters. It's amazing how they all come through time and again. Despite that, these novels are fun fairy tales where the heroine doesn't need to be saved, so yea for that!

I loved this book so much that one the day it was released I bought it. as well as the other books. Once you read Sarah J. Maas's work you are doomed to love everything she writes. Who else is excited for her next two books? I know I am!

This is so impeccably beautiful and well written! The chemistry between Feyre and Rhysand is amazing. Makes me envy them a little. The way Maas has described Prythian and the characters with such detail, I felt I was right there, present in Prythian throughout the whole story. I loved Morrigan's character and couldn't help but compare her to Tyrion Lannister because of her drinking habit and her sense of humor. ACOWAR is so far the best book in the series. Would love to see Rhysand and Feyre with offspring and a happy ending for Tamlin in the next book! And definitely more politics between the High Lords and Lady! - Lyla, age 12

This is a great book!!! Surprisingly the main character is actually LIKABLE, unlike SOME book series cough cough so many book series i can't even count them all. Rhys and the entire night court are amazing, and you really get to know them. Also the Suriel is the best character in the entire series. I read this book in three days. I was TRYING to make it last a week but it didn't work. Sarah J Maas's writing is just too amazing.

After the cliffhanger in the last book, I could not wait for this one to come out. It was AMAZING! Unlike a lot of series in which the last book is too predictable or obvious, this was an epic conclusion to an epic series!

Not since Harry Potter have I been so heavily invested in a series of books- in the world and the characters created by an author. SJM is my new author queen. She deftly weaves romance with world-building and character development in an absolutely captivating fashion. I wouldn't say that this novel has put me in a slump, but I am upset that I have to wait almost a year to get the next book. The only way I can possibly survive is to start reading Throne of Glass. I can only hope the next ACOTAR novel will follow Lucien- that seems to be a story that is begging to be told. I really would also like to see Tamlin happy. Yes, he's an ass, but I really believe he's on the right path to redemption. I need closure there.
People complain that the last battle is too short, and that no one major dies. The battle was perfectly described, and many people were gravely injured. That's really all my heart can take, thank you, SJM. I loved how everyone came together- even the Weaver, the Carver and Bryaxis, not to mention the forces from the sea (didn't see that one part coming).
I loved meeting the other High Lords- Maas made each fae and their lands different and intriguing. Kallias and his mate Viviane were by far my favorites (and the vests on the foxes!!).
There were enough scenes of intimacy to be believable without being overwhelming. Yes, the ending was left open between several characters and their relationships, but that's because there is another trilogy coming out from other perspectives. Feyre's story is over- it's time for someone else to take the reins.
All in all, a satisfying conclusion to an amazing trilogy- one I will absolutely re-read. How will I ever make it to May??

After the last book left me on a cliffhanger, I couldn’t wait for this book to come out. It was definitely worth the wait.

Well, honestly words cannot describe how good that book was. The book starts out with Feyre and Tamlin back at the spring court. While in the spring court Feyre continues to gather information, and Tamlin truly believes Feyre is there to stay. But I gotta say that Tamlin deserves every bit of torture for being a selfish ass. Throughout the book, we get appearances from all the best characters and a taste of their previous lives. That's about the best summary i can give you without spoiling everything about this book. I love the way Maas gives the message that family and friends are forever and to never stop fighting for each other. AAAH I just love this book so much. These were literally the best 699 pages of my life. This book also is a Goodreads 2017 choice awards. So can anyone give you a reason to not read this life-changing book. I also love how Maas ended the book because the previous books have ended on a cliffhanger so I was prepared to hit something if she did it again, but she didn't so all is good. 5 STARS for sure.
“Rhys fell into flight beside me, and when he smiled at me again as we sailed through the stars and the lights and the sea-kissed breeze when he showed me all the wonders of Velaris, the glittering Rainbow a living river of colour beneath us … When he brushed his wing against mine, just because he could, because he wanted to and we’d have an eternity of nights to do this, to see everything together …” Excerpt From: Sarah J. Maas. “A Court of Wings and Ruin.”

Personally, this book was the most interesting of all three current ones released in the series to read. The playing field extends beyond the protagonist, Feyre, just as in real life where not everything revolves around one person. The relationships between the characters becomes a bit more dynamic, where more gates are opened and different lines are drawn. Loyalty is so very difficult to buy, as it can only be willingly given. Warning: do not let anyone below the age of 15 or 16 read this, as there is a lot of implied and written content unsuitable for those who do not want their minds ruined. I really enjoyed this book from the start to the finish, and I detest the idea of waiting for the next one! 5/5 stars
