A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas Book Summary

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 (Sarah J. Maas) Book Reviews

YikesI feel like the whole plot of this series was lost after the first half of book 3. I could barely finish this. I cringe read my way through it. 🙄 just not my cup of tea..Score: 1/5

My absolute favorite!Anyone going through a healing journey will resonate with Nesta’s story! Seriously so good.! I just finished and I already want to pick it up and read it again!!!.Score: 5/5

FlooredNesta’s story was beautiful, I am crying writing this. I felt such a connection with her character. I am sad that I’m done reading her story. It might become the first book I actually re-read. Thank you Sarah for your amazing writing style, imagination, and willingness to share your stories..Score: 5/5

Story was forcedMaas really placed the entire plot for the series in the last 50 pages of the book. Nesta’s growth was great but it’s not worth focusing an entire book on. It felt like she forgot all the other characters, and decided to finish the book for the sake of finishing it..Score: 3/5

LovedLove this series. I hope another book is to follow. Maybe from Elaine’s perspective and if she chooses Lucien as her mate or not. To know what happens with tamlin. And about a possible alliance with heron and koschei that may start more friction between the courts. And Eris and morrigan. I just don’t want this series to end just yet with so much left unanswered!.Score: 5/5

I would give it more stars if I couldNesta’s journey was absolutely incredible. Even if you “don’t like Nesta” you will at least understand her by the end. AMAZING CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. I love Nesta. Sarah J Maas, you’re an incredible author..Score: 5/5

It’s Nesta’s TurnAt first I was disappointed that the focus was on Nesta because she has been such an unlikable character, BUT Sarah absolutely did Nesta justice by beautifully crafting her story from a angry caterpillar to a powerful butterfly. The sex scenes were surprisingly more explicit and even porn like but it’s fitting for the characters who are partaking in the sex. The graphic language distinguish more of their personality, separate from the mild sex scenes with Rhys and Feyre. Overall, great read..Score: 5/5

MUST READI love this series, and Sarah J. Maas is an absolute GENIUS. If you enjoy this you must read her other series. ✨.Score: 5/5

Disappointing compared to the othersThis one was a big disappointment. It seemed like Sarah took a break from writing halfway through and then forgot about a lot of the storylines she started developing in the first half of the book. There was way too much focus on Nesta, an already very unlikable character. You hardly get to see any of the other characters. It seemed like she was rushing to wrap things up at the end so there’s no real climax. The villain is defeated in the matter of a few pages in a very anticlimactic way. I was really disappointed considering how good the second and third books were..Score: 2/5

One of the best ones so farGreat book, better than the others in the series. Can’t wait for the next..Score: 5/5

Sexy, smart, and movingThis book is an amazing combination of dealing with grief and trauma and the depression that comes with it. Nesta’s journey to recovery is told well. It manages to wield adventure, self discovery, overcoming emotional and physical hardships, and intensely sexy moments with finesse..Score: 5/5

Loved the “fun” scenesLoved the scenes between Nesta and Cassian but the build up to the ending was not really good..Score: 3/5

Nesta FTWIt’s really hard to make such an unlikable, cold character redeem themselves but SJM does it so well and makes it believable. Nesta is raw, unfiltered, and bold; I was growing bored of the perfect heroine who-can-do-no-wrong trope of the previous books and this was refreshing, relatable, and unpredictable. There were a few points when the plot dragged (blood rite, although I understand this information will be important in the future) and I needed a bit more steam, which is easy if you skim ahead a few pages (plenty of steam to go around). I’m looking forward to Elaine’s story and finally figuring out what Mor and Eris’s big secret is….Score: 4/5

Turned avid readerI haven’t finished a book in years until I started this series a month ago and just finished all of it. I have fallen in love with these characters and their stories. I’m hoping Elain’s story is next.Score: 5/5

The best in the seriesI can’t decide if ACOMAF or ACOSF is my favorite book of the series, but I’m leaning more towards Silver Flames. This book dives deep into how different people deal with trauma, and how children overcome the trauma left from their parents. I love how this book is unapologetically raw with Nesta, Emerie and Gwyn’s experiences and hardships. Thank you SJM for this book. It teaches the reader that everyone is worth a redemption story, and everyone id worth humanizing when we get a glimpse into their hearts. This book is popular because of the steamy scenes, but those are a mere second thought to the character development of Nesta Archeron. We can all see ourselves in the characters of these books, especially Nesta, as we get a front row seat watching her tear down the iron curtains in her heart. This book only deserves 5 stars, nothing less..Score: 5/5

Brilliant and RealI loved this book deeply, I think this is personally one of the best books in this series. It’s beautiful, packed with risk and adventure and a total plot twist I never saw coming. I cried with joy, felt sorrow and couldn’t put the book down. 12/10 for this book..Score: 5/5

Can’t afford therapy, try reading this book instead!I have so many powerful, good feelings for this book. It has everything—powerful characters, complex REAL relationships and struggles, growth that literally has me feeling like I can fight god and win—you name it and I can assure you this book has it. We were right along with Nesta the whole time and after reading her journey, I feel like I can face the world with a calm determination capable of weathering even the strongest of storms. This book is a gift, read it and be better for it..Score: 5/5

Left me speechless and happyIt’s beautiful. The writing, the character development, world building, how it depicts relationships, healing, loss, suffering, mental health, sex positivity, the list goes on and on. I love this series, and her others, and they’ve been my comfort books for the last 5+ years. Warning: the sex scenes are very graphic, detailed, long, and happens very frequently. There are also some heavy topics like depression, suicide, death, people dying, sex, alcoholism, PTSD, rape, etc. I love these books more than anything and owe a debt to god for letting me live the same time as Sarah J. Maas. But you should be aware and understand before you get sucked in and then are invested but now uncomfortable too. I’ve done it (not these books) and I definitely wasn’t ready to hear/read it at the age I did. 🎆Highly Recommended!🎆 🚨Warning: heavy topics🚨.Score: 5/5

Favorite!I lied, ACOWAR is not my favorite. THIS BOOK IS FAR BETTER. It was a combination of the steaminess of ACOMAF and the excitement of ACOWAR. Nesta’s character development was absolutely riveting..Score: 5/5

PORN ALERT!!!!This should not be listed as young adults. This book has total porn in it. I’m sad because the other books were fine, and maybe had a little bit but they mostly left it to the imagination. I like the book it just needs to be labeled as what it is. It is an adult book. And a very smutty adult book..Score: 2/5

If you read this, read these books.This series is one unlike I’ve ever read, and probably will read. The DYNAMICS. The CHARACTERS. The DIALOGUE. The DESCRIPTION. Don’t hesitate to read these books!! I never thought someone could take a character and change them and a reader’s feelings for them so thoroughly, and make the reader feel so deeply. What Maas does is magic, pure magic. I haven’t just read these books, I’ve been immersed in a story unlike any other that I haven’t been able to put down. I read a LOT and I don’t think I’ll ever get over the impact these books have left on me. I want to scream to the world about how amazing these books are, but these reviews will have to do..Score: 5/5

Booorrriiinnngggg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I’m not even half way through this book and tbh this is so boring. I’ve really been trying to give this series the benefit of the doubt. Last book in this series I liked was the mist and fury book. But somehow I keep coming back. For me this series has gone down hill. Just page after boring page of mind numbing dialogue. I’m at the point where I really don’t care anymore about the characters. After this I think I’m officially done with this. No more!.Score: 1/5

Series favoriteI love all of the books in this series. This book gives us insight into Feyre’s oldest sister, Nesta’s struggles. It’s a beautifully written love story that includes real but also well-balanced portrayals of mental health struggles. The first part is hard to read because it resonates so much. That just makes Nesta’s journey all the more meaningful and beautiful..Score: 5/5

Absolutely AstonishingI have seen so many amazing reviews on this series and honestly, none of them can truly explain how amazing and mesmerizing the storyline is. The way Sarah J. Maas has woven this book around its characters and plot is unlike any other book I have ever read. There are so many emotions that have my heart pounding every time I flip the page. I finished the entire 5 book series in 4 days. I truly do love these books. I don’t know of any books that have made me feel this way. Im going to have to check out her other series, but I doubt anything will compare..Score: 5/5

Cool, i guessVery smutty. the other books were AT LEAST slightly more tasteful with their sex then this book. also, the language is foul. seriously, sjm? the f-bomb on every page? i feel like there were other ways the characters could’ve expressed themselves. i like nesta, she’s bad-a queen. also, i look like her, so that’s cool..Score: 4/5

10 out of 5 starsThis is the most perfectly written book I have ever read. Ever. In all of my 31 years of living. I’m not usually into fantasy magic beastly books but somehow I stumbled upon ACOSF and I’m so thankful that I did. It kept me riveted and breathless I barely slept for 3 days straight. Nesta is the most unique FL I’ve ever come across. She’s prickly and obnoxious and downright insufferable at first but by the end of the book I would gladly die for her. THE BEST character arc you can come across. Also, I find it incredible that the sex doesn’t take away from or lessen the impact of the story despite the raunchy language! I can’t find anything negative to say except that I couldn’t discern the era. But even that wasn’t a problem because it’s a fantasy world and I made peace with it. Thank you for sharing Nesta’s story with us. I am forever changed..Score: 5/5

Weird inconsistencies with the other booksI really liked the character focus on Nesta & Cassian. The icy older sister of Feyre and the loyal warrior are well matched. There’s a lot of attention and focus paid to mental health, trauma, and struggles with addiction. How these effect the person and those who love the one in crisis. The conflict that I had a hard time with was that of the Warrior tribe nation of the Illyrian. If these are a people trained from birth to be warriors and revere the most powerful fighters it doesn’t make sense that they are so angry about actually going to war. Every time there is a Blood Rite most of the men don’t survive and they are ok with that. It’s their way of life. But they can’t get over the fact that they lost loved ones in a war…. So what are they training for hours a day if not to prepare for war??? It’s super inconsistent with the world that has been presented..Score: 3/5

“For every Nesta out there— climb the mountain”Nesta’s book absolutely broke me into a million pieces but healed me along her journey. The way SJM is able to portray mental illness through out Nesta’s book is absolutely incredible. I don’t think I’ve ever related to a character more than her and it gives me hope, to be loved by someone as good as Cassian!.Score: 5/5

Idk what to think about itMight have spoilers. at first i thought that there is no way i would like nesta but the more i read about her, the more i understood her. she’s no where near being my favourite but i don’t despise her anymore. cassian was different. i though he was supposed to be able to read people and be this great general. but he was just depicted as a jock which i did not like very much.Score: 4/5

Best books I have ever readEvery time I read this series (and it has been many times) I feel what each character feels. My heart breaks and soars with them. I lie in my bed and cry for them. Each of their struggles feels as though it has been written by someone who knows exactly what it feels like to break and to get back up again.Score: 5/5

SO STEAMYThis book is everything you want it to be and all I’m going to say (so I don’t risk giving anything away) is that Sarah J Maas’ character development never fails to impress me. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I cannot wait for the next installment in this series..Score: 5/5

Face blushing, Ugly crying ... Loved itThis has me wishing for another book in the series ready to read ( instead of crescent city 2) I love Cas more than the next person but the little snippets of Az and Nesta’s friendship spoke more loudly than some parts of the Cas/Nes relationship and a better yet incomplete look in to Eris (would die for a book on him). I loved how Nes evolved as a person and finally accepted who she is and what she wants in her heart and the 10,000 step show her progress of growth and I loved that hidden meaning behind them. Overall an amazing book. Never get tired of reading this series over and over for comfort..Score: 5/5

RepetitiveWhile the story was good, i felt like i was just reading acomaf all over again but with different characters. i also feel like cassian was dumbed out? he’s 500+ years old and still can’t act neutral around powerful people? he’s different from who he was in the trilogy. i love nesta’s journey and her struggles but i feel like the old queen plot was useless, this could have been split in two books, one focusing on nessian and another on the queen thing. idk it just feels like a lot of stuff was added for nothing.Score: 3/5

The development of the other charactersI honestly did not put this down. I read until minutes before I had to leave for work. Reading how the characters would push each other, and work together and overcome some of their fears and sorrows and past was just amazing. This author has made me fall in love with reading again. It is the first time in over a decade maybe even more that I have read this much and have been so involved in the characters and their stories. Which she has made some very relatable. I hope that another one is to follow because there are still some unanswered questions, but also I would love to see the new matting bond set into place and one that has yet to be developed.. to see if she decides to accept the bond or possibly a new one emerge??!.Score: 5/5
