Publisher's Summary

Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the number-one New York Times best-selling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court determined to gather information on Tamlin's maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so, she must play a deadly game of deceit - and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust among the dazzling and lethal High Lords - and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

In this thrilling third book in the number-one New York Times best-selling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.

    "Jennifer Ikeda declined to continue with theseries"

    I contacted Recorded books Inc. and they said via email that Jennifer Ikeda decline to continue with the series. :(

    I don't like the new narrator, but we may have no choice to get used to her.

    "Loved it, despite new narrator (give her a chance)"

    I'll admit, I had a difficult time getting into this one (but loved it none-the-less). The new narration was just so different from Jennifer Ikeda -- for Feyre and Rhysand particularly. However, about a quarter of the way through, I was over it and just enjoying the story itself. Cobb did a really amazing job with the thrilling last half of the book in particular. Knowing that we have some character-focused novellas and novels coming up in the series, I know she'll do a great job with them (she nailed Cassian, Nesta, Amren, and Mor, I thought). looking forward to more Maas books narrated by Cobb (or Ikeda should she come back to the series). The fandom should definitely not fear this one. It's a great listen!

    "Still my favorite author"

    I think I will need a few days to recover. So many ups and downs. I appreciate the narrator for researching and mimicking the previous narrator. One thing I truly hate is when narrators are changed. It is never the same. I could tell Amanda tried all though some voices where changed she did a good job. Thank you! Thank you Sarah j Maas for another amazing book.

    "Why change the narathor ????????"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No, no, no!!!!!!!! This is my favored series; I was supposed to re-listen to them over and over again; now I'm debating to ask for a refund for this one!!!! Nothing agains THIS narathor, but these where not the voices of the personages we love; the voice is weird and no suited for Rhysand or any of the male carachters; very very wrong choice; im just going to finish reading the paper book; the previous voice was perfect :(


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Court of Wings and Ruin?

    From the audiobook? None!!! I couldn't concentrate on the book; I kept getting frustrated with the voice; at a point I just stoped listening; I will finish the book by reading the hard copy; which btw is perfect


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was horrible; nothing agains her, but it was very wrong for this series; a bad choice; the most I got upset because her interpretansion if Rhysand is just bad, no emotion as in previous book( btw: I have listen to 100 time:))


    Did A Court of Wings and Ruin inspire you to do anything?

    Very disappoint in the voice ( new narathor it's just not good for this series)


    Any additional comments?

    Bring the old narathor , I'll even buy the book again; this was suppose to be one of those book that I could listen over and over again ; now I'll just have to make it work with the first two :( very upset

    "Sarah j Maas did it again"

    She wrecked me. I felt anxious throughout this book. I didn't know what was going to happen and who was going to die. But, like all her other books, it was perfection.

    I think the narrator did a great job. No complaints here!

    "Not that bad!!"

    After seeing these reviews, I was really scared to listen to this. I loved the first 2 books SO MUCH! Jennifer Ikeda ruled. Why the switch!? I wish she had kept going, and I don't know why they chose someone new, but honestly? Once I got over being pissed off, it wasn't that bad! I mean, Amanda is no Jennifer, but I think she did her best. The characters were good. Lucien's brothers were fantastically evil. I just miss the overall tone of Jennifer as Feyre. I felt like I got to know her, and now it was like a completely different person.

    And since this book is over 25 hours long, how were people writing reviews THE FIRST DAY IT CAME OUT!? I don't think half those people even gave the new narrator a chance. They couldn't have had the time to listen to it. So. I admit, it took a while for her to find her stride, I think, but once I got past my initial shock and dismay, and I started listening to the story itself? I was still interested, and I was still moved.

    Chapter 44 - with all the high lords? And that scene with the cliff? Oh - and Lord Grayson scene with Elaine???? Come on. It was good. Admit it. Of course, you have to listen that far.

    It probably sucks to step into such a popular series, so I say job well done -- even if I wish Jennifer was still doing it....

    "Great finish"

    4.5 stars

    This was a different ride to the two previous books in the series but it delivered. The focus was strategy and war which was complex but so cleverly plotted and written. I feel this book provided consistency in quality and didn't dip like some trilogies do at this point.

    There is a lighter romantic touch to ACOWAR but the depth of love is solid, desperate and tangible. Feyre has been on such a journey as a character and what a woman she has become, a woman I admire and love as a favourite character. Rhysand was wonderful and the cast of strong side characters rocked this book, namely Nesta, Cassian and others. Dare I say, I both loved and feared some of the monsters in ACOWAR and cried over others. The creatures are described so skillfully that this is fantasy that has a 3D feeling.

    I'm sad on the one hand that this first trilogy instalment is over, but I'm excited about who will feature in the next three. I have hopes about who will be the main characters, however I trust Maas to deliver. I will re-read without doubt.

    This was an audio listen and I was worried about the narrator change but Amanda Leigh Cobb seamlessly slipped into the role which is admirable on book three. Great narration from start to finish.

    "Book 3 - The End"

    Books 1 and 2 were lovely, an intricate web of fairy tale, epic love story and fantasy. The characters were beautifully rendered with a grit that made them likeable. It is a surprising twist on Beauty and the Beast that all worked.

    Feyre, mortal, haunted and loyal, is with her High Lord - the right High Lord. This 3rd and final book relates the war with Hybern and the tremendous sacrifice the entire cast has to make.

    IMO, there is something not quite right with this book. The weft and warp doesn't come together smoothly, the pace and the story is jerky in places and it derails from emotional to mawkish on occasion. It felt a bit like the author was told to cut X number of words and the resulting edit isn't great. It has lots of those awkward narration moments where the character just dumps information, rather than weaving it into the storyline.

    Still, it's a lovely story with lots of love, war, friendship and magic.

    The narrator is excellent! In fact, her voice is so similar to J Ikeda who narrated 1 & 2, I was confused for a bit.

    This book is the last in a series, I was a bit put off by the narrator change and she does take alittle bit to get into it but once I got used to it it was ok.
    Apart from that a great story! Full of emotions and twists!
