A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. (2017).
(A Court of Thorns and Roses; #3)
*Young Adult*

Feyre will bring vengeance. She has left the Night Court – and her High Lord – and is playing a deadly game of deceit in the Spring Court. Tamlin is making deals with the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees and Feyre is determined to uncover his plans. But to do so she must weave a web of lies, and one slip may spell from for Feyre and her world. As mighty armies grapple for power, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places. But while war wages, it is her heart that will face the greatest battle.

Aaand here we are, back for book three! I really enjoyed it. More than book one (a bit slow for a good chunk of the book) but slightly less than book two (great combo of drama, action and sexy times). Once again, it’s hard to write a review without spoilers but I’ll try my best, and maybe stop here if you haven’t read the previous books. I really like angry vengeful Feyre. I was 100% on board for her to take down the Spring Court from the inside. As expected, Feyre’s two sisters feature a lot more in this book which was nice. There was a lot of character development for Feyre and Rhysand, with Feyre stepping up to her High Lady role. I particularly enjoyed a scene that involved all of the High Lords getting together and Feyre displaying all of her power. In terms of action, with the King of Hybern trying to take over we get a lot of battle scenes. I really, really like the Inner Circle of the Night Court and am hopeful that the next books explore more of these characters and their perspectives. On to the next one soon!
