“A Court of Wings and Ruin” Book Review

Book: “A Court of Wings and Ruin” by Sarah J. Maas

Genre: YA Fantasy 

Rating: 4/5 Stars 

Five Word Description: Legendary, Defiant, Mythical, Lengthy, Honorable

The third installment of the ACOTAR series finds our familiar crew of characters in the beginning of the war with Hybern. This book covers the prewar build up and then the events of the final confrontation. 

“A Court of Wings and Ruin” unearths some secrets about the main characters which allows for a more full exploration of their personalities. These hidden pieces are fascinating and give the reader a more complete picture of the characters and the motivations behind their actions. 

Every book in this series clocks in around 600 pages or more. So reading this series does feel like an investment of sorts. While reading “A Court of Wings and Ruin” I experienced some story fatigue. I felt like I just was not as interested in the plot. It seemed like the author was working too hard to keep the story going. However, the story does pick up again and the last one hundred pages or so really ties up the plot nicely. 

As I did with the previous books, I’d highly recommend the series for any reader who enjoys the YA fantasy genre. However, the second book was my favorite installation to date! 

Recommendations: Pick this one up if you’ve already read and loved the first two books in this series.
