Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling 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 amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

 

I admit that the only reason I read the ACOTAR was because I was literally bored. But as I started going through the pages I felt something, it was as if the bond snapped! I needed more. Curiosity began to rise the moment Feyre traded herself to Tamlin in exchange for the freedom of her family. It started from that part and now I love every bits of it. It’s soooo good! I’ve waited for so long for the third installment and it was worth it. I didn’t know how Sarah put it together but she did a pretty good job in wrapping this one. She gave me millions of heart attacks! Lol It was that good and now I can’t wait for next installment even though there was a part that I was worried… For Nesta

“I have no regrets in my life, but this. That we did not have time. That I did not have time with you, Nesta. I will find you in the next world – the next life. And we will have that time. I promise.”

 

I got some parts I did not like only because it was heart breaking to read. I wanted to be a character to save The Suriel, The Bone Carver and the human father. I even wanted to be Azriel’s partner! I was that attached when I was reading it. I had so many “if only I could” moments and for that I thank Sarah for creating such a wonderful piece, full of emotions and twists.

My favorite part/ best part was when Rhysand was trying to destruct Feyre.

I love you, he whispered into my mind.

The First Crack was healed.

Then the second.

“I tried to turn–

I love you, he said again

The third and final crack began to heal over.

I turned.

He looked like he was sleeping. But as I breathed in—

Wew! I’ll stop from there, but yes it was intense! 😦

Extra:

  • I read some reviews about Tamlin on this book but I still love him no matter what. I love Rhys too but Tamlin was my first love.
  • I loved how the author described Feyre’s gown, the one she wore for the meeting with the highlords. ( The gown from Starfall)
  • Velaris is such a nice place to live
  • Amren was so cool especially on the last chapter (I won’t spoil too much on this review)
  • Rhysand and Feyre are so sexy! This book is sexy! Bow.
  • Remember the vampire in Breaking Dawn? The one who betrayed the Cullens and went to Vulturi? I imagined Nesta’s face.
  • And I hate the Cauldron!

Over all I will still give ACOWAR five stars even though I felt something is missing or lacking perhaps? But since there will be a fourth book, what’s lacking might be revealed in the next chapter including Cassian’s and Nesta’s.

Mistborn: Book Review

Do you stop loving someone just because they betray you? I don’t think so. That’s what makes the BETRAYAL hurt so much– pain, frustration, anger. . . And I still loved her. I still do. -Kelsier

According to the legend, Lord Ruler is an immortal God and has rule the world for a thousand years along with his obligators and inquisitors. Skaa are subservient and lived their lives with brutality, over worked, everyday beatings and hunger for as long as they can remember. They fear of going out at night because of the dark thick mists, they believed that men who venture into the mist lose their souls.  In day time, Ash continued to fall from the sky. There was no hope for Skaa!

“I am God,” he said. “God cannot be killed”. “God cannot be overthrown.”  – Lord Ruler

A Mistborn, Survivor of Hathsin!

Kelsier went back to Luthadel to put his plan into motion. He became a crew leader of misting thieves and assembled Skaa Rebellion to overthrow The Final Empire. Impossible it may seem, Kelsier never stopped finding answers how to combat the Lord Ruler, he heard about the Eleventh Metal. He believes that this powerful metal will kill the beast. With Vin by his side, he knew his plan will work! “But with some sacrifices”

 

Spoiler Alert!!

One of the best dystopian novels I’ve ever read! I need to compose myself and start giving feedbacks! Lol. I loved everything about this book especially the feeling when you thought you knew what will happen next. A lot of “woooh” and “No” came out in my mouth. That part when I felt grief when Kelsier died but also disappointed that he just stood there in front of Lord Ruler. He didn’t do anything! That was my reaction, you can’t blame me! I wanted them to fight. I had this “just when you thought it’s over” reaction but because of Marsh I had hope! I was starting to panic but the author was so good to put all those twists!

When I started reading this book, I started to decipher the Hero’s words in his logbook, I was so confused! Brandon Sanderson “What happened to this guy?” or “I guess not all wants to be a Hero then.”

I recommend this book! Very entertaining and also if you watch Booktube videos in Youtube, Mistborn is one of their favorites.
