Series: Book 5 of 5: A Court of Thorns and Roses
Rating: FIVE STARS
Sarah J. Maas’s sexy, richly imagined series continues with the journey of Feyre’s fiery sister, Nesta.
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.
A Court of Silver Flames is the story of Nesta and Cassian. This story is a journey about finding yourself and accepting yourself. It’s a story about forgiveness and redemption and a second chance at life. I didn’t like Nesta in the first three books of this series but in this book I loved her and I rotted for her.
“For every Nesta out there- climb the mountain.”
After the war, Nesta lost herself and she didn’t know how to become herself and how to be around people and she didn’t know how to use her new powers. She needed time to heal and needed a place where she can be herself and Rhysand and Feyre gave her a house.
Gwyn whispered, “I am the rock against which the surf crashes.” Nesta straightened at the words, as if they were a prayer and a summons. Gwyn lifted the blade. “Nothing can break me.”
After she moved on to the house that Rhysand and Fayre gave her, she began her journey to healing. She formed a beautiful friendship with Gwyn and Emerie. She began to train with Cassian and with her new friends. Step by step she let her friends become her safe place where she can be herself without the fear that she can be judged or rejected. I loved the friendship between Gwyn, Nesta, and Emerie and how they helped each other to overcome their traumas. In this book, Nesta wasn’t perfect but she trying to be a better version of herself.
“I’ll be with you every step of the way. Just don’t lock me out. You want to walk in silence for a week, I’m fine with that. So long as you talk to me at the end of it.”
I loved the relationship between Cassian and Nesta. Cassian was so patient with Nesta. Cassian in this book becomes her friend and her trainer and helped her to become more strong and confident and her abilities. I just wished that Cassian to be always with Nesta and not be mad at her when everyone was upset with her.
“Forgiveness is not that easy.”
“Forgiveness is something we also grant ourselves.”
It was beautiful to see a Nesta learning to believe again in herself and heal and to forgive herself. I love her journey of healing and forgiveness. I loved every page of this page. I loved Nesta and her friendship with Gwyn and Emerie. I think the A Court of Silver Flames is my favorite book of this series and I recommend it to everyone this book.
