- A Court of Thorns and Roses – Nineteen-year-old Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, and a beast-like creature demands punishment for it. She is taken to the land of the faeries, by her captor, Tamlin, who is an immortal faerie himself. She comes to live with him at his estate. He is a High Lord of Prythian, and Feyre begins to realize that what she has previously learned about the dangerous world of the faeries is all a lie.
- A Court of Mist and Fury – Feyre has survived the trials of Amarantha and has become a High Fae, but she remains human inside and has to come to terms with the awful acts she performed to save Tamlin’s people. To save his people and herself, Feyre had to make a deal with Rhysand, the High Lord of the Night Court, and she had to satisfy it.
- A Court of Wings and Ruin – Feyre returns to the Spring Court and Tamlin to spy on him, as well as the King of Hybern and his invading forces that want to take over Prythian. But to do so, she has to play a game of deceit and lie to those closest to her to get what she needs. As war surrounds her and her allies, Feyre needs to decide whom she can trust when it comes to the High Lords of Prythians, her family, and her closest friends.
- A Court of Frost and Starlight – novella. Months after the war for Prythian has ended, Feyre, Rhysand, and their friends rebuild the Night Court after the attack from Hybern. Winter Solstice is approaching, and the court prepares for the festive season. As Feyre continues to get used to her role as High Lady of the Night Court, she must navigate around the scars that the war has brought upon them all.
- A Court of Silver Flames – Ever since being forced into the Cauldron and becoming High Fae against her will, Nesta Archeron has struggled to find a place for herself within the strange, deadly world she inhabits. 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. 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.
