Feyre 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.
First and for all, I would like to inform my dear readers the fact that I have included in my review of A Court of Thorns and Roses some of the things that are quite general for the whole series. To make this review short and not redundant, I decided to just state only the things that I have observed in the second book of the series. If you want to read my review of the first book, click here.
Feyre has saved Prythian from the hands of the evil Amarantha and has decided to marry her High Lord, Tamlin when the nightmares began to occur. Gore, horror and darkness hunt her when she sleeps.
Now, Tamlin protects her in his manor, in fear of loosing her again. But the change of events shifted as Rhysand, The High Lord of the Night Court took her in respect of their bargain.
I am honestly fangirling right now and I can’t focus on reviewing the book. Honestly this is just so… (Laughs)
Anyways, here are the reasons why you should read the book.
- The story gets better and better and better! This may be a thick novel with about 640 whooping pages but it is all worth it. The story has so much going on that you’ll find yourself realizing that you haven’t even blinked when the sun started to come out.
- Superb sense of humor. One thing I love about this novel is the sense of humor. Yes, I did mention it in my review of the first book that I love how this made me laugh. But the case here is different. I really love how the author had penned each joke especially the green ones. Oozing with sexiness and just so funny.
- Beating the hype of the first book. It is so rare that the second book is better than the first. I mean, in comparison to many series out there, this book has been way way better than the first. Story wise and character wise, the author did an excellent job in building everything up.
- The story is never predictable. There is just so many twists and turns in this novel that you will guess twice on what will happen next.
- Despite the fact that the first book has it’s own concrete ending, this book’s ending is a total cliffhanger. I won’t say much but it definitely will bring your hands to your mouth and tears pretty much flowing.
Okay, so I am in a state where I don’t know how to sort my feels out. I don’t know if it is because I haven’t sleep properly in the past few days (Yeah, it’s because of this series) or because of whatever.
Anyways, here are the things to fangirl about A Court of Mist and Fury.
- Rhysand. Rhysand. Rhysand! Who wouldn’t love the freaking bastard? Everything about him is just freaking perfect. Even his flaws are perfect. (Perfect flaws? What the hell am I thinking?) So yeah. For those who haven’t read ACOMAF, get ready to be swept off your feet by this narcissistic bastard. (Well, if you’re a girl then)
- Velaris. The image of this place on my mind is just so amazing. If you are also an anime fan, you might as well have heard of Sword Art Online. My whole perception of the place is like ALfheim Online’s City of Alne. And this is what it looks like:
- Rhysand’s Inner Circle. Who wouldn’t love these people? I mean, they are the ultimate gang that makes the story more and more interesting. They are Rhys’ friends/family through high and low and they will surely entertain you with their mischievous deeds.
So that’s it! My full review of Sara J. Maas’ A Court of Mist and Fury. If you haven’t read this yet together with the first, you better grab a copy now! It is a story of love, friendship and many others. Definitely worth the read!
So see you soon guys!
