A Court of Wings and Ruin Summary
A Court of Wings and Ruin is the third installment in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. It is preceded by A Court of Mist and Fury and followed by A Court of Frost and Starlight.
The book was released on May 2nd, 2017, alongside the A Court of Thorns and Roses Coloring Book. This book is the final book in Feyre’s point of view. Sarah J. Maas has more books planned for the series, however, these books will not feature Feyre as the main protagonist.
Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s actions and learn what she can about the invading king threatening to bring her land to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit. One slip could bring doom not only for Feyre, but for everything-and everyone-she holds dear.
As war bears down upon them all, Feyre endeavors to take her place amongst the High Fae of the land, balancing her struggle to master her powers-both magical and political-and her love for her court and family. Amidst these struggles, Feyre and Rhysand must decide whom to trust amongst the cunning and lethal High Lords, and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

HAVE WE LEARNED NOTHING?
Reviewed in the United States on March 29, 2019
Enjoyed the first enough to get the second, hit the third and started to loathe the entire series about halfway through when aspects REALLY REALLY started grating on me.
1. Everyone is gorgeous. Perfect. Skinny. Alluring. Sexy. Perfect skin, hair, body. EVERYONE. GAG me. Blech. Haven’t we gotten beyond stories where there are nothing but beautiful, flawless, perfect models???
2. Everyone is powerful. With each trial they get more and more godlike. To ridiculous, annoying degrees. Because of it, there’s an endless loop of nauseating lust and murder.
3. Everyone is rich. Jewels jewels jewels. Fancy Estates. Lavish clothes. Rich rich rich.
What I gleaned after three books? This author’s Mecca is beauty, power, wealth.
Sex with no consequences. Sex all over the place—whoever, whenever you want, orgies, or whatever. They are all horny, base, driven by lust. This is what our teens read? So many YA authors are doing this these days, skirting over the truths of uninhibited sex with many partners. No STD’s in this world! Just go for it! It makes you strong to do what you want when you want to! (Uh no. Acting wise, making careful decisions, self-control, weighing the consequences—THESE make a soul truly strong).
Coveting power. Coveting beauty. Coveting wealth. Coveting sex. No series I’ve read has been THIS bad, but I notice a serious trend in YA novels moving this way and it’s getting scary. Sodom & Gomorrah.
As a book for meant for the upcoming adult generation, it completely broke my heart. Weighed it down. What is sacred to humans anymore, what is good…perversion and lust, power and violence, unattainable perfection according to this series.

I wanted to love it
Reviewed in the United States on March 16, 2018
Lord I tried to love it. I just had so many problems with so many characters.
1. Tamlin: probably the most ill treated character in all of SJM books. I still couldn’t get over how she screwed up his entire life over locking her up in house. Seriously? Rio the guys heart out, destroy everyone’s faith in him, and then toodles! See ya! And the guy LOVED her. Like ends of the earth Loved. Even in this book he loved her. And she treats him like trash. I just can’t.
2. Nesta: she’s supposed to have this awesome power that she stole from The Cauldron. 80% of the book was building up her damn power. And then when we finally see it? It’s like being told she had a power of Vesuvius proportions only to be shown it was actually like the homemade volcano science project you did as a 5th grader. Like you don’t understand how incredibly anticlimactic it was to be told she was going to do damage only to do absolutely nothing. And what’s with the freaking attitude? Yea you’re no longer human but get over yourself! You’re gorgeous, supposedly powerful, and freaking immortal..STFU already! *eye roll*
3. Elain: basically a doormat with all the personality of a doorknob. Az’s infatuation with her came from left field. Did not feel believable at all! *eye roll*
4. Lucien: served absolutely NO purpose whatsoever to the book. He might as well have not even been in the book. Oh wait he was…for like 10 mins. Then went off on some errand that he didn’t even complete *eye roll*
I could on but I’m too tired. The first book was gold! The second book was so so. This book, I can’t. If I didn’t already pay for it I would’ve stopped reading after chapter 17
A Court of Wait and What?
Reviewed in the United States on May 31, 2017
Let me start off by saying I LOVED ACOMAF with everything in me. That book will forever stay in my top 3.
But this? This book I will probably never read again.
2 stars knocked off for two reasons.
1) My poor love-bucket Azriel was done DIRTY. I’m all for gay relationships (Gallavich anyone?) but Morrigan, what the hell?! How dare you string my baby along for centuries! I understand being scared/afraid to come out, but to know that someone is so deeply in love with you and allow that to go on for literally hundreds of years WHILE TAKING OTHER MEN TO BED with ZERO explanation as to why Az was simply not making the cut, seemed like a pretty big slap in the face if you ask me. I don’t see myself every getting over that. Ever. I cried when I read her confession to Feyre, not for Mor – but for Az, because it felt like utter betrayal.
Unless Morrigan can pull the world’s largest, most heartfelt apology out of her ass in the next continuation, then I will remain salty af for probably the next hundred years.
2) Nesta & Elain. Okay, I was totally riding the sympathy train in the beginning of the book – their lives had been turned upside down, blah blah blah, but I mean come on! At some point, Elain should’ve shown some minute acceptance rather than being little more than an annoying liability. I really really REALLY don’t like Elain. I didn’t much care for her to begin with, but blegh. Continuing to pine after Graysen and be mopey overall – pass.
As for Nesta, I still live for her banter/sexual tension with Cassian, but there’s playing hard to get and then there’s whatever she’s doing. It’s obnoxious. Don’t lay one on my man in the heat of battle and then act as if he doesn’t exist two days later. Girl, bye.
A few other things bothered me as well – parts felt rushed. Too many characters were introduced and it was a time trying to keep up with everyone. Amren/Feyre/Nesta with their INSANE powers all fell a little flat for me when game time came. Tamlin in general gave me whiplash.
All that being said, there were things I liked in this book:
-Ianthe and her death (:
-The Bone Carver/Bryaxis
-JURIAN (I honestly did not see that coming)
-Lucien (even though he was remarkably absent for most of it)
-The war scenes (so easy to picture)
This book was not great for me, but I still have hope for the next installment, whoever it may be about.
P.S. Sarah – don’t think I’m not serious as a heart attack when I say I expect big things for Azriel in the future, or you will lose a

More fizzle than sizzle
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 6, 2019
After book 2 I leapt straight into this book, eager for a conclusion.
But…I was a little disappointed.
A Court of Mist And Fury was definitely the best book of this series.
By now, the non-stop vomiting is just beyond the pale. Enough already! There are other PTSD symptoms.
Rhys and Feyre are united, then one of them disappears without telling anyone and are in danger. And repeat.
If my Hubby had such poor communication with me…let’s just say it wouldn’t end well!
These two are putting their lives on the line and have a bond – let’s talk, eh?
Yeah, Feyre is still pretty self-absorbed. Did she actually have a good look in that mirror? Sure?
‘My sister is struggling, oh well, I’ll leave someone else or herself to deal with that’. Alrighty then!?
She has all these powers – maybe use them in the battles? Develop more after the first attack? I was so chuffed for her in that moment of heroism. Oh, she’s actually fighting for others – she’s growing. (*fizzled hope*)
Tamlin – the guy had anger issues but didn’t deserve the bad rep he gets in this book.
I’m all for gay representation, but please don’t twist a heterosexual into a homosexual to do it (*sigh*). 500 years of lying to a close friend just to avoid an awkward conversation and with no hint in previous books? Hmmm…nope, not in keeping with that character.
And there were a lot of loose ends to tie up.
So many characters are added that I ended up losing track of some.
tbh, I kinda wanted someone to actually die in battle. I mean, they all seem so hellbent on doing so, it’d only be right.
HOWEVER, all that being said, I was gripped. I needed to know what would happen. And how.
There were parts which had my emotions wrung out.

War has finally come and what an epic conclusion to all the trials and tribulations Feyre and her family and allies have faced. So much happens as Hybern finally wages war on Prythian. With traitors and monsters everywhere – can our merry band survive?
This book is huge. It’s all story and no fluff. So much happens I was gripped the entire way. This book was less about character development as it was about the war. At the end you feel as drained as the characters. It is tense, it is stressful and it is nail biting. Just as you catch your breath from one skirmish, you screaming at another attack. It was relentless. This is why I’m giving it 4 stars. We get introduced to a lot more people and understand their motivations a bit more to make them less 2 dimensional but I wanted more relationship building. Again – maybe not quite the place cos it is all about the war but I after ACOMAF I had higher expectations. All in all – still a solid read. Even if SJM made my heart stop at the end.

A disappointing end to the trilogy
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 21, 2020
Continuing on from A Court of Mist and Fury, the story starts with Feyre back in the Spring Court as she acts as a secret spy in Tamlin’s kingdom ahead of the coming war with Hybern. Yet if Prythian is to stand any true chance against Hybern, Feyre, Rhysand and the other members of the Night Court are going to have to find ways to gather all the allies they can get. Will all the High Lords be able to find a way to work together, and set aside their differences?
I really enjoyed the first two books of this series and was eager to read this last instalment, however, I have to say I was disappointed in this end to the trilogy and found it coming up pretty short in comparison to its predecessors. For a start the book was unnecessary long, and overall I found it quite a slog to get through, tempted at times to simply give up, and I have to confess that I ended up more skim reading certain parts.
I was intrigued with the set up at the start of the story back in the Spring Court, and think this could have been made to work really well, but in actual fact this first part of the book was pretty poor for me. A lot of this was due to Feyre constantly being portrayed with such super-powers, nothing really felt like a threat or challenge to her, as she just walked over everyone so easily. Also I know Tamlin did act badly in the second book, however, there were reasons as to why he did what he did, and I for one don’t think he deserved the complete lack of mercy that Feyre treated him with here.
Indeed, I have to say that overall I didn’t really like Feyre’s character all that much in this book as a whole. She seemed to have lost all her vulnerabilities, and was just a bit too ruthless and arrogant for me. Its not that she’s lost her compassion entirely, but she’s very self-absorbed here.
I did enjoy Lucien’s character in this book, indeed it may have been my overall favourite portrayal in the book, and that was because unlike so many other characters, Lucien still had his complexities (unfortunately I felt he was under-used in the second half of the story). Other favourites on the other hand, such as most of the Night Court, just were painted a little too immaturely in this book. On the one hand there is this really serious threat portrayed of the impending war, and yet so often these characters are just goofing around and making jokes, acting rather like teenagers if anything, with more interest in their romantic entanglements than anything else. Nor did these romantic sub-plots really lead anywhere though, with no character or relationship development.
Feyre and Rhysand were just too ‘sickeningly’ in love in this book, Rhysand himself ‘too perfect’, all the mystery and edge that was so present in the first book and was still maintained in the second despite understanding his character better, lost entirely now and replaced instead by a ‘puppyish’ character who was just bland and boring in this book (oh and once again we keep being told he is the most powerful high Lord in history, but not once did I get a display of that power). Other aspects felt forced, such as Mor’s bisexuality.
Nesta and Elain I thought fared better in this book, with their new cauldron-gifted powers, and there is some interest into what their own stories might hold in future books, however, right now after this book, I’m unsure if I would take a chance and continue with the next proposed trilogy centring on Nesta.
Some of the lesser used characters, particularly those older creatures such as the Bone Carver and the Weaver, did intrigue me, but I just felt there was too much going on in this book, with a lot of convoluted storytelling and sub-plots, and ultimately these characters could have been used better than they were. A lot of the story was strategy centred ahead of the war, with too many new characters introduced and not enough time to really get to know them, like the other High Lords. Even once we got to the war itself it didn’t hold my interest as it should have.
Maas continues to tell rather than show a lot of the time, with lots of exposition when it comes to characters’ backstories, and whilst in previous books such flaws could be overlooked, here everything just felt too messy for it to work. Oh and the constant use of the word ‘mate’ in this book was just cringey.
This was just an over-bloated and unengaging book, with none of the character-driven storytelling of the previous two books, such that it ruined what had till now been an enjoyable series and I lost interest in many of the characters I had hitherto really liked. I’ve given it a 3 stars, but in all honesty it may be a 2.5 stars.
