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.
Sooo, reviewing this book can become quite a controversial topic, but let's go.
A Court of Silver Flames is the fourth book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, a well-known and loved series. I enjoyed the first trilogy enough to want to read ACOSF, but to be quite honest, it's the hype and the buzz around it that made me want to pick it up. I knew I would read it at some point, and I wasn't planning to read it a few days after its release, but here we are.
This book was not surprising. I listened to the audiobook, and overall enjoyed it, but some points made me cringe and some other points made me angry.
“She would not be mastered by anything again. She was the master of herself.”First, let's talk about what I loved about this book:
- Nesta. I didn't hate her in the first trilogy, but didn't LOVE her either, but in this book, she clearly grew on me and I really enjoyed her character and her thoughts. I understood while she was behaving that way towards others, I felt her emotions and her despair, and I sobbed with her during a certain chapter that I will talk about later. Nesta was the best part of this book. Her healing journey was well done in my opinion and was very touching and emotional.
