A Court of Mists and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

17927395Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

Conclusion:

This is basically my favorite book of this series. Rhysand starts off as kind of a dick, but then the more you read, the more you understand his point of view and went he went through and it makes you love him more and more as the series goes on.

Whenever there’s a love triangle, I always tend to go for the first love interest introduced, but all this novel ended up doing was making me dislike the hell out of Tamlin. He’s an ass. He’s possessive and controlling of Feyre and basically just expects her to sit pretty all day. Fuck that. She worked way too hard for her sisters before going to the Spring Court to sit pretty in a castle all day.

At least Rhysand actually let’s her do something.

Speaking of Rhysand and doing things. I love enemies to lovers romances but OMG half the novel was me thinking “holy fuck, kiss already”. Talk about drawn out sexual tension. It was the most frustrating and the best thing about the novel. This novel is classified as YA/NA… I’m going to be completely blunt when I said that the sex is way to descriptive to be classified as YA. I have no issue with sex in YA, but this is not it.

I also loved watching Feyre discover all her powers. And then turn into this complete bad ass once she started getting a hang of them.

Also, I forgot about that cliff hanger.

Time to try to distract myself with other books until I can start the third one.

  1. I just finished rereading this too! It was so much better than I remembered. The first time I read it I thought it dragged in the middle, but on reread I realized it was because, like you, I wanted them to just get on with loving each other already lol The way the ending was handled frustrated me. I felt like information the reader should have had was deliberately kept from us. On rereading, I still feel that way, but SJM was very careful with the words she used. So I upped my star rating from a 3/3.5 to a 4/4.5. The only reason I can’t give it a 5 is, I still have a little trouble, because Feyre and Rysand couldn’t have known EVERYTHING that was going to happen there at the end and it felt like they did. I think author knowledge got in the way a bit. Absolutely love it though. I’m about halfway through A Court of Frost and Starlight now. SQUEEEE! So good 😀

      1. Yeah the POV is a little strange but it’s definitely another series where the world completely opens up and gets better and you see behind the mask of the “bad guy” in the second and third books.
