A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J Maas | Reviewed by Michelle


ACourt of Silver Flames| SarahJ Maas | Bloomsbury | Pub: 2/16/21

“That’s the key, isn’t it? To know the darkness will always remain, but how you choose to face it, handle it…that’s the important part. To not let it consume. To focus upon the good, the things that fill you with wonder. The struggle with darkness is worth it, just to see such things.”

Sarah J Maas did it again! A Court of Silver Flames is about Nesta, a fire breathing dragon personified and, our wonderful warrior, Cassian.

Nesta was forced into becoming High Fae and she hasn’t adjusted well to this new life. She’s picked up a lot of bad habits and her family has had enough. They are worried she will destroy herself.

She is forced to train and get a job. Through training with Cassian and working in the library with the priestesses, Nesta does some serious soul searching and growing as a High Fae.

The oh so steamy sexy time is also rather delightful.

I know some people did not enjoy this installment for a few reasons: too much sex (I needed more to be honest), certain characters not dying (how dare any of you wish for that anyway… FOR SHAME!)… and on and on. This happened to be one of my FAVORITES in the series. I think my order would be:

A Court of Mist & Fury

A Court of Silver Flames

A Court of Wings & Ruin

A Court of Thorns & Roses

Also, every book is not for everybody! We all have different tastes. You may have hated it but lots of people did enjoy it. Leave those of us who enjoyed it alone. And if you didn’t like the other books in the series, not sure why you would read another book in the series knowing you wouldn’t like it. I hated Six of Crows and then stopped reading the series because why read something I don’t enjoy? Just so I can write a hate review? Nope. I have better things to do with my time then to read a book just so I can hate review it. Just so I can try to piss off the people who loved it.

Synopsis (Credit: Goodreads)

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.
