Never ending. I loved the first two books of this series, but I found an overwhelming majority of this one to be never ending streams of consciousness / thorough depictions we as readers did not need. The progression of the story line felt like watching paint dry. Also — there’s like 200 minor characters the author just expects you to remember at a moments notice. It even felt like Maas gave up towards the end, loosing me as a reader saying things along the lines of “it wasn’t but at the same time it was”…not a direct quote but you catch my drift. Some chapters I found so infuriating I had to find spark notes online (which I ultimately found more satisfying to read… shout out to bad books good times online). I committed to finishing the book, and I’m glad I did, but man oh man that time a lot of dedication.


I love this series!!. I am so in love with this series!! I laughed, cried, and wanted to throw my phone all at the same time lol. Such a great book. I am obsessed!!


Thrilling!!. Loved this book, actually the series so far. Could not put it down. It hits all the feelings. I wished they made this book series I to a movie or series. It’s just a great thriller, romantic, funny, sad, adventurous, even suspenseful.


WOW. My favorite of the series.


Couldn’t put it down. I read this in 4 days, it was such an amazing book. The battle scenes were epic and full of detail and glory. Highly recommend.


Great. Even better than book 1. Loved it!


Won’t let me get past chapter 5. This 1 star isn’t about the content! The book won’t let me read chapter 5, so I just paid $15 for a book I can’t even read.


When I re-read ACOMAF and I have to do this one next. It’s such a wonderful companion and addition to the series.


I really liked it... I enjoyed reading this book but I feel like some bits didn’t make sense // kinda seemed random. Chapters 70-82 were so crazy I cannot explain to you how ~ S H O O K ~ I was. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series!


Another amazing one!. I’ve loved all the books in this series so far and this one was great as well! Loved the journey I went on with this book. Very excited to continue the series!


Amazing. I love these books so much. What a wonderful series


Love. A little slower in the first half on the book compared to the two previous, but soooooooo good!


The answer is Love. The way this book made me hold my breath, kick my feet, roll my eyes, and sigh. The sisters, the family, this is what makes the story shine.


SPOILERS. Book was great! I thought some of the scenes during the final battle needed more scale (especially Amren’s unleashing). I also think Maas needs to stop being afraid to kill off characters, I don’t understand why she brought Amren back? Especially when throughout the entire series Amren has been trying to find a way back home. Finale lacked impact because no one truly died.


So good.. This is probably one of the best well written series I’ve read in a long time. I can’t wait to see what happens with the other characters in the next one..


Enjoyed the continued story line. Enjoyed this book but gave it one star less. Seemed like there were times when the story dragged


wow. Just keeps getting better!


BEST.. My favorite one yet!


Bsweet. Loved it!!!


Fabulous. The way she explains and describes things in such vivid ways is immaculate


Amazing.. No other words needed.


Wish I would have stopped at the second book.. It just didn’t do it for me, I was in love with the first and second book, and should have just stopped it there. Felt it was just endless problem after problem with lots of random conversations that really didn’t need to be there.


Great twists!. Loved this book! Couldn’t put it down. Amazing twists I didn’t see coming!


Favorite Book in the series. Absolutely my favorite book in the series. The plot moves quickly enough that you're captivated with each page and everything ties in so well towards the end. Very action packed in this book leading up to the big war


AAAAAAAAH. WHY DID you do that at the end. That thing. You know what I mean. CRUEL. But. Alas. This one was so good. The second and this one are my FAV. I cried I laughed I panicked I felt ALL of the emotions. V pleased

Rossy Bou

Less romance. Loved this series until I got to the middle of this book, more focused on conflict rather than romance which made this book appeal less to me when compared to how much I loved mist and fury.


I cried 😂. I couldn’t believe it 🥺🥺 I literally screamed! I almost didn’t believe tamlin would step up 🥹🥹🥹🥹


shaking and sobbing. the end of this book had me curled up in my bed crying but then it got better and now i’m scared to start the fourth one.


Character building. The character building for feyre in this series is simply amazing! Bravo to the author, she’s a creative genius.


Best book in this series!!!!. I loved this book the best! So many stories, twists and turns! You never know what will come next! My heart is just full, overjoyed and excited with this book. It made me laugh, cry and excited! I had trouble sleeping when I stopped at one point to try and get some sleep! 🤣


Best out of the series so far. I ugly cried for an hour after I finished😂


Incredible. Just absolutely in awe of this series. Cried twice while reading this book. Read it. You won’t have any regrets. Except for not reading it sooner!


Awe. Lost for words. I don’t even have the words to truely explain how this book has left me. Read it now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!🥲🥹

Ray Ann PNW

Excellent, griping & emotional. Loved every word.


Access. I paid for the book and I don't know why I don't have access to the whole thing, it stopped after chapter 5 and wouldn't let me continue


Great book!. This book was amazing!


Great book. I haven’t had a book make me cry in a while but they got me at the end. I loved it🫶🏽🥹


So exhilarating!. This series just keeps getting better and better. Would recommend it to anyone!


Really Good. A good read!!! I enjoyed it all and even shed some tears. I was only disappointed for her character build up for the war only for her to just have her hands on a magic pot…


War is coming.. This book has a lot of war talk which is different than the first two but it’s so wonderful. I can’t wait to read all of her series.


Indescribable.. The amount of emotion ripped out of me by the last half of this book.. SJM is a marvel.


Best book so far!. This book had me crying tears of happiness and pain! Wonderful book in the series and I can’t wait to read the next one!


Outstanding.. There are no words. You always want more.

XXKelly :DXx

Amazing. I haven’t loved a book this much in such a long time. I am truly amazed!


Unhappy. The only reason I give a 1 star is because I have purchased all of these books before and instead of saving them and just allowing me to redownload them. I’m now having to buy the books all over again? They are worth reading over and over again but only after I’ve already bought them. I don’t know if it’s worth buying the whole set again when I should have them in my Library ready to read.

Juliet Ortsev

…. too long! 😭


Epic. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this ACOTAR installment. I know it sounds cliché, but I couldn’t put it down. Absolutely epic.


Love & War. I think this is more like a 4.75 in my opinion. I love the whole series but sometimes in this book the writing seemed off. Buuuut I felt it had plenty of action ⚔️ and some spice 🌶️ and just great development of all characters. The war was brutal and had plenty of twists I wasn’t expecting. 🖤


Absolutely beautiful!!. Many have told me that the second book is the best in the series. I have to disagree and say that this book has my heart! Love stories and very difficult interactions between all characters. I couldn’t put the book down because it only got better and more interesting with every page!


I loved this book!!. Each one of these books has gotten better and better. I’m so in love with them.

Spectacular. I experience every emotion possible throughout this whole book. Truly amazing.


Too good to be true. I thought I enjoyed the second book the most, I was extremely wrong. This one made me shed actual tears. Thank you for this masterpiece


Great War. The story did drag on a little but was well written. A great ending that makes me wonder what the next book will bring.

Narmina Mamedova

Phenomenal. Everything in this book makes me sit on the edge of my seat. The wondrous plot and character development made me shed actual tears. The more I read the more I’m attached to these characters and their fictional lives. I spend every free moment reading. I never expected for there to be such a grip on me in this way, but am beyond glad my friend gifted me the first book. I finished this 5 minutes ago and have already purchased the 4th book. All I can say is, don’t skip this series.


Loved it!!!!. Couldn’t put any of it down and so sad for it to end!


Fast paced. Couldn’t put it down




Amazing. Simply amazing I love the characters and the story is mind blowing.

Keen sign



Too much build up. I find some parts to be dragging. But the pay off , delivers surprises that keeps you on your seat.


Beautiful. I love this series, and Sarah J. Maas is an absolute GENIUS. If you enjoy this you must read her other series. ✨


A must read. I cried. I laughed. I cursed and would’ve thrown my phone phone to ground if I wasn’t already on my third one. In love with this series.


Obsessed!. I can’t put any of the books down in this series!


5 Stars. Amazing. All I can say. Perfect writing.


Love. Love this series.


Not like any series you’ll read!. This is definitely my favorite book out of the series. So many twists and turns! Hair when you think you got it figured out something hits you right back! Incredible read!

Madilyn Cashio

Love is the gift in this book. An absolute roller coaster with my heart


So good!!. This whole series is amazing!!


Addicting. Epic. Twists and turns left me unable to put the book down. Kudos to Ms. Maas on her masterpiece.


Drags you deeper. Simply, soooooooooo good! Definitely got those chills down your spine you get when a great part in a movie happens….


Wings and Ruin Indeed. This book is so well written. I hang on every word. The plot twists and turns and just keeps getting better and better. This is definitely slower than the first book but still just as good of a read!


Breath taking. Each books gets better and better. I never want this love story to end.


Pls read. I’m not even kidding this has to be the best book I’ve ever read 😭


If you read this, read these books.. This series is one unlike I’ve ever read, and probably will read. The DYNAMICS. The CHARACTERS. The DIALOGUE. The DESCRIPTION. Don’t hesitate to read these books!! I never thought someone could take a character and change them and a reader’s feelings for them so thoroughly, and make the reader feel so deeply. What Maas does is magic, pure magic. I haven’t just read these books, I’ve been immersed in a story unlike any other that I haven’t been able to put down. I read a LOT and I don’t think I’ll ever get over the impact these books have left on me. I want to scream to the world about how amazing these books are, but these reviews will have to do.


Amazing. Absolutely beautiful, I couldn’t stop reading.


Love these books!. I loved these books. I recommended them to everyone. I wish I could erase my mind and read them again.


turn your brain off an read this series. honestly the acotar series as a whole is just a “brain off” read. it’s good and i have no qualms with the plot or characters, but it’s also not the best ? i just think it’s a good book to read when you’re under the weather and need smth to do !!


ACOTAR. Amazing series. I couldn’t book down any of the books!!

Rose is Reading

Loved!. Another page turning installment to the series!


tears actual tears. AMAZING OH MY GOD I CRIED SO MUCH


Gripped until the very last page.. I love these books.


LOVE IT. Planing on re reading this one


A court of wings and ruin. This book. Damaged my soul. Tore my heart and ripped it to shreds, then put it back together.


Loved it. Ughhhhh 😍😭


Best One Yet!. Clearly the best in the series. I laughed, cried, skimmed through pages just to find out what would happen next. I can’t even tell you how much joy this book brought to me!!! Thank you for your beautiful writing!

Moses Belle


Ayanna hudgins

incredible writing. Breathtaking and beautifully written


This series became an obsession. I was enthralled. I cried, laughed, fell in love, hated, tensed, and jumped with joy throughout this series. The world building & character development were stunning. This is the best thing I’ve read in a long time. I wish I didn’t have to leave this world.


Incredible. I couldn’t stop reading. Or laughing. Or crying. I absolutely love the characters and the twists and turns of the plot. Incredible writing.


Beautiful. Absolutely STUNNING. Every twist. Every tang. Every bite. Absolutely worth it.


The best.. This book is hands down one of the best I’ve ever read. I’m in love with this series.


Just do yourself a favor & buy these now.. Loved, loved, loved this series!!!


Ugly Crying —it’s that good. I am writing this at 2:30 in the morning because I simply couldn’t put this book down. The talented queen Sarah Maas tied EVERYTHING together perfectly! It was beyond satisfying to read. This book had me shaking and sobbing at times, and I haven’t felt this moved by a series in a long time, if ever. So many surprises and twists. I know I’ll be thinking about Feyre’s story for a long time.

Cool lagoon

Favorite book of all time.. Easily my favorite book I've ever read! The characters were everything and I was captivated from start to finish. The book hangover I will have after this series is unreal.

Imm jkxkska

My heart…... So sad for this series to come to an end. I truly fell in love with so many of these characters

AlMo (they/them)

Breathtaking. Sarah J Maas created a beautiful, terrible, ethereal world that makes your heart race as you read. She weaves deep feelings and visions into easily flowing paragraphs, and catches every loose thread with care and intention. I was especially fond of the light-handed queer relationships woven into the storyline, the most gentle mirror of our own experiences I’ve found in fantasy writing. My favorite book yet.


Obsessed. Fantastic series!!! So so happy I was introduced <3


So good. So hard to put down!


Great series,butt….. Not as good as the second, but I hear the fourth is amazing so I’ll still continue the series to find out. Great author!


I have fallen in love with this family. The inner circle is a true family. Maas conveyed their bonds and dedication to each other beautifully. This book had me angry, sobbing, and laughing. What a beautiful world Maas has created, and I’m so happy I read this series. This book was different from the last one in that it was less about romance and more about growth and fighting until you can’t. This book is full of strong characters and I am so happy I’ve gotten to know them all through these books.


Best series. I have loved every book in this series so much. It’s addicting!


Couldn’t put it down!. I read the entire series in about a week (even as a mama of two) but of all the books, this was entirely my favorite. I am so sad to have finished these books, I loved all of the characters so much!
