I ugly cried for an hour after I finished😂

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.

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…

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

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.

My favorite one yet!

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.

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! 🤣

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

There are no words. You always want more.

No other words needed.

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!

Even better than book 1. Loved it!

It’s such a wonderful companion and addition to the series.

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

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..

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

Just keeps getting better!

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!

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

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. 🖤

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

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!

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.

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

Absolutely beautiful, I couldn’t stop reading.

This whole series is amazing!!

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

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

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

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

Amazing war and twists and turns!! Loveeee love love!!!

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.

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 !!

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!

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

Amazing. All I can say. Perfect writing.

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!

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

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

This book. Damaged my soul. Tore my heart and ripped it to shreds, then put it back together.

Couldn’t put it down

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!

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

Love this series.

Ughhhhh 😍😭

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.

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.

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

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.


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

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.

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

Loved, loved, loved this series!!!

So hard to put down!

Another page turning installment to the series!

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

I love these books.


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.


Breathtaking and beautifully written

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.

Planing on re reading this one

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

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!

Great vacation read!

Personally, I loved this book the most. It was much more exciting and it provided a clearer lens to the character development of many. Some expected, some not so much. I was eager to see all that Mass had in store for me.

need i say more

An excellent exciting adventure!

Plot twists. Character changes, all out war. Sacrifices made this book difficult to put down for me. Really enjoyed the unraveling of this story

Omg so so so good. Couldn’t put it down!!!

Every page. I have never laughed, cried or soared with emotion more than I did with this series of sheer perfection. It should be read by everyone if only to remember that life is a gift and kindness it’s ribbon.

Of all the love and fantasy books out there, this series are my absolute favorite. Beautiful story line

The character and the story are so well written

It was beautiful. I could not put it down. I felt like I could see everything so clearly their expressions, their clothes, their homes, every space- it was excellent. Thank you for sharing your creativity and your heart.

This is by far the best series I’ve read in years! Loved it!

I’ve felt so many emotions reading this book. Lots of tears!! Tears of joy and sadness! It’s so intense, the love is intense, the drama is intense and it’s action packed from the start! Definitely my favorite series!! I highly recommend reading it, it’s too good not to!

Fantasy adventure love at its best. This series has been a thrilling in every sense.

I’m going to read again just for feel it. I haven’t loved a series like this is a very very long time. So glad found it.

The emotions this book pulled from me are more than any book ever has. It is definitely my new favorite, and i assume it will top my charts for a long long while.

Loved this book!

Could not put it down. If only real life was as magically wonderful as these books.

*If you are not of age or at maturity level, stay away* “We are all broken, in our own way-in places no one might see.” 700 pages. 700 pages filled with thoughts. Filled with action, arguing, and ultimately love. This book really did have me on the edge of my seat. I will say it probably could have been shorter. Which from everyone I heard it from. It’s true. But I also liked it? I liked seeing that it was a long battle. I liked seeing the different moments in the battle. In the quiet and in the rage. Rhysand has become one of my favorite male love interests. Whole heartedly. He helps Feyre with her insecurities. He doesn’t control her. Even when he goes out of his mind because of some different situations in the book, because he wants to protect her he knows that controlling is not protecting and the fact that she’d chop him off he’d tried, he never once became overly possessive. He always made sure she knew that she was her own person with her own choices and he would follow her and back her up. He supported her even if he thought it was stupid and I’ve only seen it happen in one other book. At least in this manner. Or from what I have gathered from coming back into reading. 😂 Feyre. Her growth. 👏🏼👏🏼 We see her grow so so so much in the series. From being spiteful towards the Fae to learning about them and accepting what they truly are. She saw herself and accepted herself. The strength that it takes to truly love yourself with the beautiful and the ugly is truly a feat and one she did gloriously. We see her learn how to defend herself and be courageous and loyal to her found family. This was truly incredible and I love that she gave her loyal love to those who deserved it. She didn’t know how far she could go until she was in the situation, and then she found out just how truly strong she was and this, this happens to so many of us. I’m here for it. My love for Cassian and Az has always been strong. Mor confidentiality too I have always admired. She just 👏🏼 and AMREN! She there are no words. The inner circle truly is beautiful.

I think this has become one if not my favorite book series. The characters are so real and I felt connected to them. The plot was amazing and I loved that there was more action. I think this was my favorite book in the series.

I am in love with this series!!! I am in love with the family dynamics, the sci-fi, everything. I love everything about this series.

This book had my heart racing almost the entire time. Just when you think you know what is going to happen, SJM flips you around and completely shocks you. GOODNESS. I loooooove Rhysand and Feyre. LOVE THEM. Words can not describe how much I enjoyed and loved reading this series. SJM did a fantastic job at creating a story that including heartbreak, love, action, mystery, and best of all family love. I love all of these character and really look forward to and hope (plz) that they get their own books! go ahead and read!

Seriously SJM never fails to draw me in and make me fall in love with her characters, flaws and all. Her stories never have a dull, predictable moment. I’m always captivated by the paths she weaves for each character how even small details play a part in a bigger picture! Her female leads are inspiring to young girls and women alike! I usually don’t reread any books, but I’ve read this series many many times.
