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 fitting end to a fantastic series"

    This was a satisfying and appropriate end to one of my all time favourite series. It was never going to top A Court of Mist and Fury, which is one of the best books I have ever read, but I certainly came away feeling happy with how the story wrapped up. There are a few things I would have liked more of, certain characters and their development and relationships that could have been more thorough, and the action scenes were a bit long and excessive for me as I prefer the characters to the actual plot personally, but it was a 4 Star read.

    Not as good as the second book but great all the same. Ms. Mass is a genius when it comes to romance, adventure and self enpowerment.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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!

    "Change narrator! PLEASE!!!!!!"

    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!!!!

    "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....

    "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!!!!!

    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.

    "Just A lot of Meh"

    There is so much fluff in this book that I just have to roll my eyes a lot. This book just didn't need to be this long. The voice actor was fantastic, but the plot progression was at a snails pace. Not to mention plot device characters throughout. And if you think character development is going to happen, think again. So slow plot, no development in character's and lots of use of the word mate.
