The Story:

The # 1 New York Times bestselling sequel to Sarah J. Maas' spellbinding A Court of Thorns and Roses.
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.

My Review


As with A Court of Thorns and Roses, I went into A Court of Mist and Fury not knowing what to expect. At all. If anything, at the back of my mind, I figured readers would get the story of Happily Ever After -- since we had the story before Ever After with ACOTAR.

A Court of Mist and Fury pacing was little slow for me. My guess is it was because of all the foundation laying for the main event to come in book 3. There were boat load of changes to Feyre's story readers had to adjust to and A Court of Mist and Fury was that adjustment period. A Court of Mist and Fury was a transitional book. The world-building was phenomenal. The world in the story was like nowhere I have ever been, it felt so real. Maas' writing was was as brilliantly captivating as ever. With every passing page, I was drawn more and more into the story.

All in all, you need to read A Court of Mist and FuryA Court of Thorns and Roses remains my favorite of the two. But, A Court of Mist and Fury is the book I LOVE to HATE! While I didn't like how the story changed from A Court of Thorns and RosesA Court of Mist and Fury was a dark, seductive fantasy I very much enjoyed reading.

Character Breakdown:

The characters were as well-written and fleshed out as in the first book.

Feyre  - Feyre was different in this book. She went from colorful to black and white. Broken, bland.

For him, I had done this -- for him, I'd gladly wrecked myself and my immortal soul.
And now I had eternity to live with it. - page 7

Tamlin - I don't know who Tamlin was in 
A Court of Mist and Fury. He was drastically different in character and I hated the change of direction. #TeamTamlinIsMia #ACOTARWasAFarce But, it remains, I still had faith in Tamlin.

His fingers grazed lower, circling my belly button. "You are--you're everything to me," he said thickly. "I need . . . I need you to be all right. To know they can't get to you--can'
t hurt you anymore." - page 23

Rhysand  - Rhysand was a obnoxious son of bitch, and a frienemy you were not sure you liked or hated. I preferred Tamlin over Rhysand but Rhysand had a way of sneaking up on me. Never knew what to expect from him.
