Melissa's Review:

A Court of Wings and Ruin is book 3 in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. While these books are gigantic in length, I find myself drawn to them because of all the crazy stuff that happens. I've really been enjoying seeing what will happen next and with trouble brewing for our leading lady, this sure was a great read.

In this installment we start off with Feyre back with Tamlin in the Spring court. She's determined to get revenge and also start her plan in motion. After everything that happened in the previous book, this installment does things a bit differently. We're seeing the war brewing between the fae and learning alongside Feyre how the political maneuvering works in their world. It doesn't take long before Feyre returns to the Night court though and her and her friends/family are trying their best to keep everyone they know and hold dear alive, but it might not be enough. In efforts to strengthen their chances during the war we're seeing the different High Lords gather together in attempt to align forces on the battlefield. Full of plotting, fighting and intrigue, this is an installment you cannot miss.

A Court of Wings and Ruin is an attention grabber in a series I'm really enjoying. We see some advancement in the story and learn more about the High Lords which I can always appreciate. I'll be interested in seeing where this series goes from here. For some reason I was convinced this was a Young Adult Fantasy series, but I'd mark this more as a New Adult Fantasy since there are somewhat descriptive sex scenes. If you're a fan of fae books or New Adult Fantasy in general, I think you'd enjoy this series.

The Narrator:

I thought Amanda Leigh Cobb did a wonderful job on her narration. I did notice a few words mispronounced while listening but it wasn't enough to distract me from the actual story.
