A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J Maas is the fourth book in the ACOTAR series, but this one is narrated by Nesta and Cassian.
The War with Hybern is over and a tentative peace is in the air, but for Nesta Archeron the war within herself has reached it’s peak. Ever since she was Made, she has been a danger to herself and others. In the hopes of helping her move past the horrors of the war and her forced making into a High Fae, Nesta is forced to train with Cassian, a male she both can’t stand and can’t live without.
As Nesta attempts to take control of her life, treacherous new alliances are forming and the peace that was so hard won, is once again threatened. Can The Night Court head off the coming darkness or will it swallow even the stars?
Seriously, I’ve already read this. No really, I must have downloaded the wrong book and already read it. I swear, that is the thought that went through my brain almost every time I closed the book at night. I checked Goodreads and my downloads on at least three separate occasions.
When I first started reading, I vaguely remembered reading a sample chapter, so I kept waiting to get to what I hadn’t read yet but damn if I didn’t have deja vu the entire time. I mean, Nesta and Cassian’s story isn’t all that different from Feyre and Rhysand’s. The circumstances and the trauma behind the struggles are different but that’s really it. I mean seriously, a major turning point for Nesta happens at the House of Wind during the star ceremony thing… just like Feyre.
So let’s tell this how it is. These books are pleasure reads. Pure and simple. They are fun to get lost in, we root for the characters and, admit it, we’re in it for all the steamy bits. Other than the seriously similar plot, I guess my only complaint is that the book was almost too focused on Nesta and Cassian’s relationship and we didn’t get as much plot as we do from the other books. That’ll probably change in the next book, which I hope is written from multiple perspectives, not just N&C.
This book is what it is and I knew that going into it. It gets 3 stars from me.
That’s all for now!
