My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, although things are different this time. This time she’s working against her former lover, Tamlin, in an attempt to figure out how to stop the King of Hybern from destroying all of Prythian. As the threat of war looms closer every day, Feyre doesn’t have much time.
It’s a cruel and deadly game everyone is playing, but nothing will stop Feyre from finding a way to keep her people and the man she loves safe.
After the awesome ending to ACOMAF I couldn’t wait to see what Maas was going to do to end the series. This book, like the previous two, sent me on an emotional roller coaster that did not disappoint.
Feyre’s role at the Spring Court was brilliant. It was so interesting to see how much her character has changed and developed over the course of the series. She is no longer the terrified, broken girl that she used to be. She’s fierce, clever, cunning, and ruthless. She learned to wield and take ownership of her magic, making her an incredibly powerful High Lady and player in the game of war.
I loved the addition of Feyre’s sisters to the Court of Dreams and the development of their characters, as well. Up until now, they didn’t serve much purpose in Feyre’s life, so it was nice to see a family bond developing. I also loved getting to see the bonds between the rest of the Court growing deeper during such a troubling time. Additionally, we got to learn more about the other High Lords of Prythian and other side characters, which only added to the complexity of the story. (I particularly liked what Maas did with the relationship between Feyre and the Suriel. It was quite touching.)
ACOWAR was the perfect ending to the series, filled with unexpected twists and lessons on love, sacrifice, and fighting to make the world a better place.
