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.

    "A Court of Wings and Ruin. "

    I adore this series.
    I think audible is fantastic.
    I almost don't want to criticise this book because I love the characters and the first two books are brilliant.
    However needless to say I am so disappointed with the ending of this book! I hate the fact that Rhysand is brought back to life, he shouldn't of died in the first place! It almost seems that anyone can just die and be saved ... and the point with Feyre was that when she was made new it was special, an event that does not happen. It also makes no sense that he still only have the night court powers?
    Rysands character seems to change throughout as well, he is not rude or smug with Feyre he doesn't speak to her the way he did in the first two books
    and for me that was why I loved them together because they challenged each other.
    Nesta and Elain play good parts in the book, and the friendship and love these three sisters have towards the end is lovely.
    I will say when Feyre is undercover at the start of the book has you gripped. And when all the high lords meet and Tamlin walks in late that too has you on the edge of your seat.

    "I love this book , but bad move changing narrator "

    The thing I love about the audio books is how invested you get in the voices, emotive ways they speak etc. To change the voice in the final book... it caused me to loose all dedication to the characters. I tried but couldn't finish. I now won't buy one if the voice changed during any series. bad move :(

    "ACOWAR spoiler"

    Is slightly disappointing after ACOMAF a lot of padding to get us to the end of this tumultuous tale ... A lot of vulgar gestures and throat Bob's but after all that the ending seemed rushed to me. But it all ends happily ever after what the next two books will be about we will have to wait and see.

    "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....

    "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!

    "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.

    This is by far my favorite series of all time. I will probably re listen to the first 2 books and only read the last book. I am SO disappointed that they changed the narrator for the last book. it honestly shouldn't be allowed in book series...... PLEASE RE DO THIS!!!!

    "Narrator NOT terrible. Just different."

    I agree. I wish Jennifer Ikeda finished this series. But I don't think Amanda Leigh Cobb was terrible. She was just very different.

    After I got over my initial frustration, I really started listening to the story itself. By the time I got to the battle and the story line with Nesta's arc? I was hooked. The scenes with Elaine are heartbreaking. I also loved Lucien's journey. And I caught myself aching for Mor during her . . . confession. (No spoilers!!)

    For me, this one was less about Feyre and Rhys and more about the other characters. My heart was absolutely broken for Tamlin who I STILL think got screwed in this entire story, but that's just my opinion. I fall into the "Go, Tamlin! camp" because I don't think his actions were necessarily any more abusive than Rhys's actions under the mountain -- Anyway.

    Give the STORY a chance. New narrator doesn't deserve to be raked across the coals for a decision that was not hers to make. I still enjoyed it!!!!!

    "Mixed review"

    I returned the book Bc of the voice narration but I later repurchased it and was able to deal with it.

    It was a good book but entirely too long for what the ending ended up being. I feel like the beginning and middle were sooooooo drawn out but the end was quickly wrapped up with so many questions unanswered. I'm assuming that many many story lines weren't tied up or answered Bc there is another book coming out....?

    I wish they worked on the ending more and honestly I've become more interested in the other characters than the main ones lol. If there is a another book in the series I look forward to more development in some characters

    "Narrator was great...stop the hate!"

    Amanda Lee Cobb did a fine job as narrator. Sarah Maas is an incredible writer, and I'm listening for her words, not the narrator's performance. I love Jennifer Ikeda (narrator of the first two in this series) just as much as the next daily Audible listener, but, in reading some previous reviews, I think we have moved too far from where we all started -- listening to HEAR BOOKS, not hear performances (though I have to admit I have my favorite narrators - I would listen to Will Patton read the dictionary). I came across the reviews for this book (3rd in the series) before I'd finished the 2nd book in the series, so I was tuned in to the actual differences and to me, Ikeda read Feyre a bit mature and breathy than I would have pictured her in my mind. They both read the male voices well - important - and they both allowed me to bypass the performance and get lost in Maas's incredible series. And it's not even her best (IMO).

    "Narrator Change Didn't Ruin It"

    I loved the first two books in the series and was looking forward to this one when I noticed that the narrator was different. I generally hate when there is a narrator change in a series told from the same perspective, especially if you are binge listening. It tends to be so distracting that it can ruin it. Luckily this narrator sounded almost identical to the previous one and did an equally excellent job. I might not have even known they were different narrators. That being said, it was a great end to a great series, well worth the listen!

    "New narrator, no worries."

    I've actually never written an audible review before, but felt compelled to do so in this instance as I believe the bashing of the Narrator is unwarranted. Yes, Jennifer Ikeda did a terrific job on the previous two books. I am as disappointed as you guys. However, I don't believe Amanda Leigh Cobb deserves the negative reviews of her performance. Of course it is different from Jennifer's, they are different humans. But, it doesn't make it bad performance by any means. I hope you give it a chance, because after the first part of the book, I hardly remembered that there had even been a change and was as into the writing as ever.
