Title: A court of silver flames | Author: Sarah J. Maas | Year: 2021 | Genre: Fantasy
Wow. This book was just amazing. don’t even know where to start. This book was incredible and I think I will miss this universe too much while we wait for the next volumes. ACOSF has the story of Nesta, a character that I didn’t like that much in the previous books, but that in this book managed to win me over. It’s amazing the character development and how mature she has become. I had a lot of empathy for her, because it makes sense for her to feel the way she does and it broke my heart to see how much guilt she carried within herself. Nesta doesn’t think that she deserves happiness, she feel so guilty with hers father death and all these feelings is consuming her. But it’s amazing to see the power of love, self love and friendship.

And if I already loved Cassian, now I love him more. I loved seeing more of him and how he is not just a rough general, but a being with a lot of love, kindness, and understanding towards others, especially towards Nesta. And I loved seeing Cassian in love and his romantic soul. He’s so loyal, he’s so nice, friendly and it’s amazing to see him becoming himself even more. Cassian has a very difficult history, because of everything that happened to his mom/family, so he deserves happiness as much as everyone else.
The combination of Nesta and Cassian is pure contrast, but that’s why they complement each other so much (and give us very incredible hot scenes🔥). I didn’t expect this book to have so many sex scenes, so I was kind of surprise. But I think that match with the personalities of the main characters.
Feyre, Rhysand, Mor, Az… All these characters that are secondary in this plot, have important roles in the story. Feyre and Rhysand don’t even talk, right? Seeing them together made me very happy. I love them! I saw some people saying that Rhysand is becoming a Tamlim and NO WAY! I believe it’s a complete different situation here. Feyre is not being captive in the night court, she is being protect because of her condition. Rhysand is protective, but not in an problematic way.
I think the only “negative” point of this story is that I found the “villain” a little boring. I found the villain’s motivation very weak and silly. But in any case, I was more interested in the development of Nesta and her powers than with the political plot of the book. So I don’t really know what to expect to the next book of this series, but I hope that Sarah comes up with super different and new. I really expect that Elain has a different role and not just being the innocent girl, she has a lot of potential to become very powerful (and maybe a villain?)
This story made me feel everything. It was like seeing old friends, it made me happy, I cried, I got emotional, I was excited and I can only say: Sarah J. Maas did it again.
