BOOK REVIEW: A Court Of Wings And Ruin

A Court Of Wings And Ruin- Sarah J. Maas

The very first page the perfect introduction; a mixture of memories, melancholy. This reverie of Rhysand’s, the first line, consisting of no more than 14 words; it is painting the past and yet foreshadowing everything that is about to unfold. Sarah J Maas has written ACOWAR in such detail, that the lines between a fictional world and reality become blurred. Hurt, due to betrayal, turning into a confusing whirl of emotions. Because for every action there was a reason- even the enemies seemed to have been redeeming their actions as a good cause. Now at the start of chapter 48, I, as the reader, am troubled. The characters whose actions seemed shallow and evil were protecting their own -as Feyre is and have been. What makes her slaughter that much better than their malicious actions?

“It’s a rare person to face what they truly are and not run from it.”

With only 50 pages left Sarah J. Maas managed to fill my eyes with tears and yet as my eyes read the last few lines I was filled with so much joy. A magnificent piece of literature!
