Rating: 3/ 5 stars
Note: If you are a Sarah J Maas stan or an ACOTAR series fan, this review is probably not for you. I just finished reading ACOWAR and I’m using this space to rant.
I’ve never gotten why people get so hyped over Sarah J Maas’s books.
This book only raises my confusion.
I’ll agree that ACOWAR is better than ACOMAF, (even if I gave it a lower rating than ACOMAF), I didn’t like several aspects of this book, hence the 3 stars.
Here is my rant:
Sidenote: This is getting long but whatever happened to Feyre’s painting skills?
“The movement was so perfect that I knew I’d one day paint it.”
I haven’t seen Feyre paint since she returned from the Spring Court. I get she’s busy with the war and stuff, but she wasn’t too busy to keep from flirting with Rhysand.
To sum it up, I did not particularly love this series. It was ok. I don’t get the hype over these characters because they all seem pretty bland to me. The first book (ACOTAR) was the only good one. It only went downhill from there.

I totally agree with you. I did not like this book as much as I had liked ACOMAF! For me it's mostly because I was blindsided by the wonder that is "Kingdom of Ash". I loved it to bits, flaws and all. So was really annoyed with juvenile act of the characters from ACOWAR. Are we supposed to forget about the character's true nature and start again just cuz they're suddenly in love with each other and so nothing they do cant go wrong cuz they're the main protagonists?

EXACTLY! The characters were acting so juvenile in this series and when there was a war, the characters did no planning (they just sat around while Rhysand and Feyre ya know). While I gave up the Throne of Glass series after Queen or Shadows, it’s a much better series than Acotar
