No one survived the last battle unscathed. Flint is angry at the world, Jaxon is turning into something I don’t recognize, and Hudson has put up a wall I’m not sure I’ll ever break through.
Now war is coming, and we’re not ready. We’re going to need an army to have any hope of winning. But first, there are questions about my ancestors that need answers. Answers that might just reveal who the real monster is among us.
And that’s saying something in a world filled with bloodthirsty vampires, immortal gargoyles, and an ancient battle between two gods.
There’s no guarantee that anyone will be left standing when the dust settles, but if we want to save this world, I have no choice. I’ll have to embrace every part of me… even the parts I fear the most.

Court is the fourth novel in the six-novel series, which will be followed by a spin-off series. This story continues from the previous where Grace learns more about herself and tries to navigate the many dangers. In this novel there are trials that she must face, which felt a little underwhelming at times. Many of the tasks were built-up to be impossible, but they just were a letdown. This novel is another long one at over 700 pages, but I was surprised that they went by fairly quickly.
As a character, I enjoy Grace’s growth where she seemed to shine a little more compared to the first novel. She is still naïve and self-absorbed where her inner monologues were exhausting, but she still is making some progress as a character. The repetitive inner monologues may not have bothered me as much if they weren’t taking over a lot of the novel, so this is more on the writing compared to the character. I feel many of them could have been eliminated and the story would not miss anything. Also, I am not sure about how Wolff writes about Grace’s being as it seems as soon as one secret is revealed there is another one added soon after. This would not be bad if they built on each other, but it seems that once the new one is introduced, it becomes the sole focus.
As for Jaxon, I know quite a few people who ship him with Flint, but I just don’t feel romantic sparks between them. For me, I see a great friendship connection, but, so far, no romance. This may change in the next stories, so we shall see. Similar with the other novels, I wish that some of the long descriptions were deleted and replaced with exploration of the characters and their relationships. This one had a lot going on at once and lacked direction in places, but there is still something about this series that makes me want to continue. As the next novel, Charm, will fill in some of the gaps between books one and two, I look forward to trying to connect to Hudson and Grace as a couple.
