A Court of Silver Flames (A Court of Thorns and Roses, 5)

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.

I cannot accurately describe how excited I was to finally be able to read this. It did not disappoint. Nesta’s journey is probably one of the hardest to read (and one of the strongest character arcs in the series so far) - her internal battle for her own self-worth is heartbreaking and inspiring all at once. I laughed, I cried a bit (the ending GOT ME), but most of all I loved being back in the world with some of my favourite characters. I cannot wait to see what happens next...
De todos os livros da série, esse definitivamente é o melhor. Não tenho palavras pra descrever o impacto que foi ler esse livro, do primeiro ao último capítulo.
I bought this for my daughter and myself.. Admittedly i was nervous reading this because i loved all the other books so much.. but i really disliked nesta most of the time and i didnt want this book to spoil the series. Anyway heres my thoughts.. while i dont mind a few adult steamy scenes i feel it was a bit OTT and after the first few i skipped pages. If i'd wanted to read an erotic or explicit story i would've. Also, somehow it seems as though Nesta becomes the most powerful of the group. So the character who the treated people who cared about her like rubbish through 3 books.. ends up being rewarded with the most power? Over Feyre and Rhysand? I know that the power adjustment levelled out eventually.. but i felt much of her behaviour was excused and even those excuses she gave felt rediculous.. I loved all the other characters and the banter between them.. just Nesta's behaviour and her power completley through me off. The other characters made it worthwile reading. Sorry, but both my daughter and i felt a bit disappointed with this story which sucks as i love all of Sarah's other books.. My daughter is disappointed more so as she is a massive Sarah J Mass fan.

Eu amei a história, a evolução da Nesta me deixou muito feliz! Tudo que eu esperava e um pouco mais. Amigos brasileiros, esse livro é gigante comparado às impressões daqui kkkkkkk fiquei chocada

2.75 stars Continues SJM trend of being more s*x than substance. Cassian and Nesta were the only reason I picked up this story and while elements of it were interesting (i.e. the female friendships and Cassian's support of Nesta's development) this was overall pretty underwhelming. SJM does not include and real stakes in her novels so I never have any doubts that things will work out perfectly for everyone involved. Would have loved if she could have excluded Rhys and Feyre as they are stilted and often intolerable as characters after book 2. I wish she'd graduate these books into the adult category because they read like an erotica novel rather than YA. It's obvious that her writing takes a back seat to the graphic s*xual encounters since that's the selling point for some. Shame on me for hoping this would be different. Like I said, there were elements I liked but as a whole, SJM brings another p*rno to YA without any real stakes or care to a story about PTSD that could have been helpful to others. Disappointed but not surprised. I am hoping this is the end of Cassian and Nesta's story. I don't have any interest in where ACOTAR has to go after this.
