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.
Do you ever start drafting a review for a book before you even finish it? This is what I started doing with A Court of Mist and Fury. I had a lot of thoughts running through my head so I started jotting them down before I forgot them. Emotions and thoughts are so fresh while reading. Sometimes I think my reviews are actually more thought provoking and energized when I jot notes down while reading.
I felt an emotional attachment to Rhysand in book one, now in book two, I am helplessly in love with him. His shell cracks and his mysteries began to unravel in A Court of Mist and Fury. All the other courts see Rhysand as this tough, murderous, cruel and conniving High Fae Lord, when in reality he’s thoughtful and kind. He cares so much about his Court that he sacrifices himself time after time. He also clearly cares terribly for Feyre.
Feyre is slowly wasting away in body and mind in A Court of Mist and Fury. She’s struggling with adjusting to life as an immortal fae. She’s also experiencing PTSD after being imprisoned by Amarantha under the mountain as well as being forced to kill two innocent fae in order to rescue Tamlin and the rest of the faes entrapped by Amarantha’s curse.
We, and Feyre, learn so much more about the Night Court than we ever learned about the Spring Court. Feyre realizes that Tamlin has purposefully kept secrets about his court from her. The few new tidbits she learns shocks her because she holds such different views on these matters. After a huge blowout with Tamlin, Feyre is whisked away to the Night Court by Rhysand and his cousin Morrigan.
My mind has made so many comparisons between Twilight and A Court of Mist and Fury. Tamlin started reminding me of Edward Cullen which was not a good thing. Like Edward did to Bella in Eclipse, Tamlin starts hiding important and dangerous facts from Feyre. He treats her as such a small fragile thing and won’t allow her to make her own decisions. Enter Jacob, I mean, Rhysand who knows how strong Feyre really is, mentally and physically. He encourages Feyre to embrace her strengths and budding abilities. Rhysand respects Feyre enough to make her own decisions. Swoooon.
Long story short, I don’t like Tamlin anymore. He reminded me too much of a character from another series that I despised.
I LOVED A Court of Mist and Fury. I loved it even more than A Court of Thorns and Roses. We learned so much more about Feyre’s world and met a sleuth of wonderful new characters. We also learned that everything isn’t so black and white like we were set to believe in book one. There’s so many lies for the good and bad that we begin to learn about.
I’m going to waste away waiting for book three…
I give this book 5+ stars for awesomeness and addictedness.
