A Court of Silver Flames

The Fourth book in Sarah J Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses series

Synopsis: Nesta Archeron has always been prickly-proud, swift to anger, and slow to forgive. And ever since being forced into the Cauldron and becoming High Fae against her will, she’s struggled to find a place for herself within the strange, deadly world she inhabits. Worse, she can’t seem to move past the horrors of the war with Hybern and all she lost in it. The one person who ignites her temper more than any other is Cassian, the battle-scarred warrior whose position in Rhysand and Feyre’s Night Court keeps him constantly in Nesta’s orbit. But her temper isn’t the only thing Cassian ignites. The fire between them is undeniable, and only burns hotter as they are forced into close quarters with each other. Meanwhile, the treacherous human queens who returned to the Continent during the last war have forged a dangerous new alliance, threatening the fragile peace that has settled over the realms. And the key to halting them might very well rely on Cassian and Nesta facing their haunting pasts. Against the sweeping backdrop of a world seared by war and plagued with uncertainty, Nesta and Cassian battle monsters from within and without as they search for acceptance-and healing-in each other’s arms.

Holy moly, It’s been a damn while since I popped into a Sarah J Maas book! I was going back and forth about if I was going to read this one or not because honestly I can’t stand Feyre’s sisters —especially Elaine— so since this one was about Nesta I figured I’d give it a go…and I’m happy I did. I actually really enjoyed this one, and I can actually say that I like Nesta now. —Elaine can still screw off though.

This book was hot and steamy as hell! Which was very exciting, in more ways than one…it was very extra spicy fifty shades up in here. but I almost think that the amount of sex kind of took up too much of the book and made the actual story feel like it was rushed and squeezed together in between the sexy scenes. Not hating on the sex scenes though, just think it could have been a bit more intensional.

The idea of Rhy’s shield really bothered me for some reason… I sort of get it, I see why/what he did there, I guess. But I think that it’s also the fact that no one was surprised that he had it on her, that it was just normal “territorial fae” of him. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Rhy’s —and obviously once Azriel and I get married I’ll have to begrudgingly put up with my brother-in-law Rhys— but honestly I couldn’t stand him in this book, people thought Tamlin was the only controlling one?

Speaking of Azriel, Obviously I’m currently married..so for the time being we simply aren’t meant to be, but I swear to god if he ends up with Elaine I’m going to shred all of the books. I really truly loved the new character additions to the series! First of all the house is amazing, probably my favourite character ever! But the girls Emerie and Gwyn were also fantastic, and honestly can Gwyn and Azriel be a thing please? I think she would actually be an acceptable fit for him, that relationship I would wholeheartedly approve of.

I rate this book

8/10

HAVE A FAMTABULOTASTIC DAY

BUT WAIT… there’s more! I ended up getting the bonus Feysand chapter in my book, that was okay, it was whatever, it was fine, I guess… but a lovely person who had the Azriel bonus chapter sent it over to me today! —Shout out to the lovely Caroline— and at the beginning of it, not gonna lie.. I almost stopped reading, I was so freaking upset. But then I powered through and I actually like how it turned out. It gives me great hope for his future and any books that may happen with his story direction.
