Tamlin refuses to believe Feyre could fall in love with Rhysand. Blinded by his love for her, Tamlin takes Feyre back to the Spring Court where she begins to unravel everything around him. All Feyre wants is to go home to the Court of Dreams, but Tamlin has betrayed them to the King of Hybern and for that, he must pay.
While A Court of Mist and Fury focused on building Feyre’s personal relationships with those around her, A Court of Wings and Ruin is going to put those relationships to the test. Feyre walks a thin line as she does all she can to deceive Tamlin and create distrust in the Spring court. To watch Feyre work, readers will be on the edge of their seats waiting for the one moment that would give everything away. Will her temper snap? Will Lucien see through her deceit? It certainly is a page turner.
As Feyre does what she can from the Spring court, Rhysand and the others plan for the larger picture. War is coming to Prythian, led by a King who would rather see the humans once again enslaved. And he has the Cauldron to do his bidding. With the war growing closer and closer as the story progresses Sarah J. Maas ramps up the tension and creates a wonderful mix of angst and anticipation.
And Sarah J. Maas does not let her secondary characters fade into the background. Mor, Cassien, and all the others will have their own parts to play in the war. Readers will feel just as connected to them as they do Feyre and Rhysand. But that also means that if anything happens to them, readers will feel it just as deeply. A Court of Wings and Ruin is a great addition to the series.
