**NO SPOILERS**( I will try)
Age Group : 13+
It is not possible to realise that this series has come to the end ( the story of Rhys and Feyre , p.s. we have 2 novellas coming).
And just to pacify those readers that still havent read it and I ensure you this isnt a spoiler, but Sarah j maas doesnt folllow the popular trend of KILLING EVERYONE. I am damn sure that she must have killed few others , but wasnt able to sleep that night , so she decided "Nope...not happening."
And I believe I need not explain my irrevocable and delirious love for this series and the author, if you have read her previous books.
As for the answers that we wish for, they are there , however there are many more mysteries that are to be revelaed by us as readers.
And last but not the least , please read it .... the internet has already started to flood with spoilers.
Dont go anywhere near your phone unless you finish it . I am trying to protect you.
May the Cauldron be with you.
Everybody preparing to read book three, y'all are in for blast of emotions and a roller coaster ride.
The only thing I didn't feel satisfied because it end on a losse note but then again, we have three more books following this triology. (If you didn't know this, where on earth were you?)
I don't intend of revealing spoilers so, I'll just warn you abput one thing. The ending wouldn't be the way you expected.
Points I Liked About A Court of Wings and Ruin
Nesta and Cassian: A new couple was formed in ACOWAR and that was of Rhys’s commander, Cassian and Feyre’s elder sister, Nesta. Initially, Nesta came across as a haughty and grumpy character so I did not like her at first. I found her very annoying especially the way she would keep to herself and not mingle with the others. She had her owns reasons for being aloof but I found it a little too much after a point of time. However, her character went through a lot of changes in the book and I gradually started liking her. The fact that Nesta hates Cassian but still finds herself drawn towards him makes me root real hard for them. The two of them are strong and ruthless which makes them alike which is why they are always at loggerheads. Whenever there was a scene between the two of them I would feel overly excited because the writer would describe the look in Cassian’s eyes, the sensuous heat flashing in his eyes at the sight of Nesta, which would make me impatient to see them together as soon as possible. Nesta too shared the same feelings for Cassian as even when she looked restrained she was also evidently worried each time Cassian was hurt. However, the two of them never admit their feelings in the book and I am now eagerly waiting for them to do so in the next book.
Points I Did Not Like About A Court of Wings and Ruin
Story: The book started off well. At least the first 30% was gripping. The book starts with Feyre returning to the Spring court to her ex, Tamlin but only as a spy for the Night court. Her stay at the Spring court and her subsequent escape was an interesting read. But that was it. The book reached a high point and then staggered its way to the end. I finished the first part of the book in one sitting but thereafter it became a struggle for me because the story got really boring from there. Though I did like the meeting where all the High Lords come together to plan for the imminent war, every other event thereafter seemed lukewarm and even rushed sometimes. The war scenes too had no impact on me as I did not find it very thrilling. Also, I felt that Feyre and Rhys had much more chemistry in ACOMAF that they had in this book.
This series was supposed to end with this book and I personally feel that the extension to 5 books affected the writing in this book. It is very likely that the writer, Sarah J. Maas must have developed the story for a trilogy but since it became a hit, the series got extended and she probably had to re-think the story-lines and drag it a bit to ensure that it has sufficient content for the two extra books. Had the story ended here, I am sure it would have been neatly tied up because Maas is an extremely talented story teller but that didn’t happen and it clearly impacted this book.
Final View: I have no complaints from Sarah J. Maas’s writing or the whole ‘Court’ series. I was just left a little disappointed by this book. After the gripping ‘A Court of Mist and Fury’ I was seeking something more thrilling which was missing in this book. I hope the next two books cover up for this one.

Overall, I love these books, even their uneven aspects; certainly worth a read!
Everyone expected it to be as good as the second one but it falls short by a lot.
This might be the only series that has an AMAZING second book and alright first and third books.
It's a nice book to revisit the characters and the world and continue with the plot.
But there are some people who were unhappy with the way the 'coming out' of a certain character was handled. Which I can't speak for so you better Google it and read all about it before picking up the book.
But all in all worth it to read about dear Rhysand again.
I just finished this book 5 minutes ago.
And I can't even explain my feelings.
I don't know how to describe this masterpiece.
RHYSAND and FEYRE are the best characters.
And their relationship is just perfect.
And the way it was told in the book And how they support each other throughout the whole story is f***ing great.
And how Sarah described every scene was magnificent.
