A Court of Silver Flames (ACOTAR #4)

By Sarah J Maas

Rating: 5/5 stars!!!


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

My Review:

Ok ok so after the long longggg 4 YEAR WAIT this book has finally appeared in my hands and you bet I devoured this baby like a starved lion who has been waiting patiently for more of this fabulous sexy little dangerous world that is the A Court of Thorns and Roses series!!!!

But wow. Like wow. This BOOK.

Ok so contrary to most opinions I actually didn’t hate Nesta going into this. I understood her and why she was so angry and why she lashed out. So I actually looking forward to seeing more of her journey 😉 . And OMG you all know I am IN LOVE with Cassian – he is just ahahdhakhad sexy and yummy all in one (love him 😉 ) so I OF COURSE I COULD NOT WAIT for him and Nesta’s story!!! (was literally on pins and needles and am glad my nerves could be put in time out the moment this gem was released). 


That being said I’m PLEASED to announce that the agonizing (hair pulling) 4 YEAR wait WAS WORTH IT.


Because guys this book was so good. 

Like so so so good.


Sarah J Mass truly knows how to write characters that just make me FEEL. MY heart was constantly under a hammer this whole book and being squished and reshaped and reborn. Because this book had no rules and no regulations – in fact it pretty much burned the safety manual to the ground in regards to how much it broke me


I related to Nesta so much as a character. The way she felt so broken and undeserving of love had me tearing up and shredded like cheese on a grader. I loved how she was this starved wolf who lashed out and tore into people with her sharp words and at the same time devoted erotic romance novels at the same rate she did chocolate cake (who said you could be two complete polar opposite things shoved into one character? Like RELATE to the crazy contrast that is Nesta). But most of all I related to how much lack of self love she could have and how that affected her relationships and pushing people away. #relate #Nesta-is-ME.

“So Nesta had become a wolf. Armed herself with invisible teeth and claws, and learned to strike faster, deeper, more lethally. Had relished it. But when the time came to put away the wolf, she’d found it had devoured her too.”

She was such a multilayered cake of a character and I just wanted to scream at anyone who didn’t see the golden gem of who she truly was hidden underneath her wolfish exterior (ahem I’m looking at you Amren and Rhys) because she was struggling so much and needed more than just Cassian to reach out their hands. 

“Keep reaching out your hand.”

I also just love how Sarah J Maas gave us bread crumbs of progress and than brutley ripped them away. Like I was DYING. The angst in this books is off the CHARTS and my HEARt was purely SUFFERING because of it. (but only SJM can make me suffer this much because her books are pure golden tiaras that I will wear even if they give me a killer headache because they are beautiful and pretty and the way she masterfully desvolpes a story – JUST YES 100% yes.) #iaminpain 

And than there was CASSIAN. (who yes deserves his own paragraph bc he is Cassian. Enough said.) Sarah J Maas did not come to play no games when it came to my lovely Cassian because he was FLAME and FIRE and the hand we all need to reach out to us when we are broken and trying to heal. I absolutly adored my brutey general solider winged man. He was so good. SO much fire and passion within him and yet he was vulnerable and unyielding when Nesta needed him to be. He was always in her corner and never ceased to fight for her – even when she could not find the strength to fight for herself. And thats all you really want. Someone who will stand by you even when you push them away (especially then) and make you see the strength within yourself – make you believe it was there all along – so that you could get up and heal yourself. So that you could learn to love yourself again. Learn to love the world again. Cassian was a hero wrapped in wings and a devils smile and I loved him and Nesta endlessly

“Rhys lifted his head. “This is a bad idea.”

Cassian winked.

“That should be written on the Night Court crest.”


Not to mention to CHEMISTRY between the two had me SIZZLING!!! Like the romance and the smut in this was too good!!!?! Omg I was panting after each interaction they had with one another. And how SJM weaved in all their interactions with their layered history from the past books – just omg slap me and snap me back into reality because this book just makes me want to dissolve into this WORLD. OMG so so good I cannot stop thinking about those twos CHEMISTRY and fire and love and addahdss amazing. Thats all I have to say about that.

“Az chuckled, the wind shifting the strands of his dark hair. “You two need a chaperone up here?” Yes. No. Yes. “I thought you were the chaperone.” Az threw him a wicked smile. “I’m not entirely sure I’m enough.”

That being said this book just keep getting better. I loved the magical house Nesta lived in (like magic house – I want one!!) and the female friendships absolutely SHINED in this book. I loved Gwyn and Emmerie with my whole dang flipping heart (if we don’t see them more in the next books I will die)(also how they would swap romance novels made me want to be friends w them ASAP).

…..and all the danger and quests and fight scenes and training scenes and multi layered political interactions in this book?!?? SO. GOOD. I’m also forwarding my hospital bill to SJM for the shear HEART ATTACK she gave me with those plot twists in the end. Like I lucky I’m still alive because the shock factor alone was enough to kill me. Only SJM would try and kill me and than revive me in the next page – hot damn these books are everything. 

“Welcome back to the Night Court, Nesta Archeron.”

This book was a pure golden gem and I loved it. This series will always hold a place in my heart. I read the books in high school in a time when I needed them more than anything and therefore these books will always have an imprint on my soul. So heres to the countdown for BOOK 5 everybody. Lets hope it isn’t another 4 year wait 😉

5 Golden Glittering Stars 


What do you guys think? Adding this one to your TBR? Already read it? LMK your thoughts in the comments below!


Hey all! So as many of you know romance is my weakness in books – if the book has a good romance you can bet I will be reading it. *please give me all the romantic rip your heart out or smother me in fluff situations* 

That being said I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite fantasy romances that I just cannot get enough of!! Some of these are even favorite series of mine that I guiltlessly binge read one after the other….


The Winners Curse Series by Marie Rutkoski 

Honestly such a good slow burn romance. I read these years ago and still remember the angst. This series is too good and cannot recommend it enough! 

Rhapsodic by Laura Thalassa 

Read this whole series last year and LOVED it! Book 3 is my fav in the series and I need to read more from this author asap (if you like A Court of Mist and Fury you will like these books 😉 )

The Bridge Kingdom by Danielle L. Jensen 

I still need to read book 2 in this series but omg this romance hit my in the gut and tore up my insides?!? The ending destroyed me and this slow burn romance is devastating in the best of ways. So good. 

A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab 

One of my favorite series of all time. Kell and Liliah are so beautifully written and I love this fantasy world! Its been years and I still cant get this book out of my head. 


A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St.Clair 

A Hades and Persephone retelling that I adored!! This book made me feel so many things and I loved it. One of my favorite fantasy romances of all time!!!


What about you all? Have you read any of these? Have any on your TBR? Read any good fantasy romances lately? LMK in the comments below!!


Hey everybody – how are we doing? Are we doing groovy? Did we read anything spicy this month? 

I surprising did read some things while simultaneously getting my butt kicked by school and the shock that was this tiny short month being over??

February: Starts

Me: *blinks*

February: Over 

So that about sums up this month and all that happened. Valentines day was equally uneventful this month and I am so happy to finally be done with most of my midterms (I think I have one left??). 

But enough about me – on to what were are all here for – THE BOOKS *claps hands together*

The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi – 5 stars

Ughh this series!! I love love love!! But Severin you crazy bastard!! That ending left me breathlessly frustrated but the cover for book 3 is GORGEOUS and I can’t waittt. 

Sweetest Scoundrel by Elizabeth Hoyt – 5 stars

Oh my god. Oh my god. One of the best (maybe the best?? ahh) historical romances I have ever read. Asa Makepeace is hands down my favorite man I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading in a historical and omg can he just appear in real life and marry me please?!? Like I’m waiting. 

A Rogue of Ones Own by Evie Dunmore – 4 stars – 

Another breath of fresh air historical romance. Loved how this one felt fresh and modern but also had some fabulous historical flavor to it. Tristan is amazing and I loved the whole “It was always you” aspect to the romance between him and Lucie. Will def be wanting to read the other books from this author. 

After by Anna Todd – 4 stars

I surprisingly didn’t hate this??? But omg that ending ran my heart over with a truck!!! Way to get me invested and than have me crushed all in the span of a breath!! But also *hello* *waves hands* I need more of this toxic trash. 

After We Collided by Anna Todd – 5 stars – 

Wow. This book is a rollercoaster. I went from loving to hating this – to love hating this on multiple occasions. Somehow the petals I picked off the flower while reading this ended up on love?! Maybe I’m crazy, but I love my two idiots Hardin and Tessa and am now attached to these characters. 

In all…

I am happy to say that I am pretty satisfied with how my reading month turned out (especially because a couple of the books I read were over 600 pages (I’m looking at you AFTER and AFTER WE COLLIDED smh) ….but do wish I had gotten around to reading SJM’s new book, A Court of Silver Flames and am hoping I pick it up this MONTH because I JUST HAVE TO OK. 

What I watched:

The Bachelor (current season) – Waiting on the season finale over here. But….. I don’t think Matt is going to pick who I want to safe to say I’m bumming and also disappointed with the male species once again. Sigh. 

Well that its my lovely reader friends! I hope you all had an equally successful reading month and that you read some excellent books during March! Best of luck with the reading goals and go pick up that book!!
