We’ll be back to regularly scheduled programming (aka bi-weekly podcasts about a-mah-zing books) starting June 1st, 2021. Make sure to subscribe wherever you get the show so you don’t miss out on some exciting bonus content we’ll be releasing in the meantime (hint hint, author interviews!!)

In A Court of Wings and Ruin, Feyre starts out in the Spring court, bringing it to its knees as retribution for every terrible thing that Tamlin did. She escapes back to the Night Court with Lucien so she can get back together with her mate, Rhysand, and help all of Prythian and the human realm take on Hybern, who basically wants to kill everyone.

This episode contains major spoilers for books 1-3 of the series. You can check out episode 14 for our ACOTAR chat and episode 21 for our discussion of ACOMAF.
