One-word Review: SEDUCTIVE
Reading Tune: Dark Hopes by Barbarossa
"Tell me what you see."
"A world divided in two."
I vomited into the toilet, hugging the cool sides, trying to contain the sounds of my retching.
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 Fury. A 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 Roses, A Court of Mist and Fury was a dark, seductive fantasy I very much enjoyed reading.
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
