Title: A Court of Mist and Fury
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses #2
My ranting: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
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 torn apart.
“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.”
“To the stars who listen and the dreams that are answered.”
I could write a full review telling you how much I love Rhysand and how I’m love I am with him but oh well, I guess I can’t- can I?-.
Even though I wrote a review the first time I read this book I felt like I need so many things about this because OH MY GAWD THE FEELS GUYS. THE FEELS ARE SO VERY REAL.
*If you haven’t read ACOTAR yet just… maybe you should skip this review. It probably has some ACOTAR spoilers..*
“There are good days and hard days for me—even now. Don’t let the hard days win.”
Let’s start with how much I adored the world building, and how we got to see different places. I loved The Night Court, and Velaris. The people in the were super sweet and nice and I JUST WANTED TO PROTECT THEM AND MAKE SURE THEY NEVER GOT HURT.
I honestly love those scenarios, but maybe it has a lot to do with my love for the stars and the night – just mayyybe-. But being able to know more about it and The Inner Circle was just pure joy to me.
We also got to see The Summer Court, and let me tell you Tarquin is such a sweetie and you can’t help but love him too. There were so many things happening in that court that had my heart racing and got me on the edge of my seat! WOW. There are a pretty intense action scenes here, guys.
“I’d broken myself apart. And I didn’t think even eternity would be long enough to fix me.”
And I just wanted to talk about something. I don’t really think that the characters are completely different from the first book as I heard so people said. Tamlin is just the same(actually if you re-read ACOTAR after finishing this book you’ll see what I mean), very protector and even more after what happened with Amarantha Under the Mountain. And because of that he made a shit ton of bad decisions that made me want to hit him with a chair. But yeah, he was stupid enough to not see what was happening to Feyre. So he can go to hell.
Feyre is suffering from PTSD and clearly what she longed for in ACOTAR (protectiveness, security, be taken care of after all those years hunting and taking after her family..) was not the same she wanted in ACOMAF (she needed to be free and go outside, not being kept inside bars, along with other things). You can see her development throughout the book, and that’s something I enjoyed reading (especially the second-half-of-the-book Feyre).
Lucien… I understand him, okay? He’s no innocent but I just can’t hekp but pity him.
And Rhysand… ah, Rhysand. Anything I said about him would not be enough. I love him. So. Freaking. Much. And once you read the book you’ll understand why. But yeah, he’s incredible and a cinnamon roll too good for this world.
“He thinks he’ll be remembered as the villain in the story. But I forgot to tell him that the villain is usually the person who locks up the maiden and throws away the key. He was the one who let me out.”
NOW I’M GOING TO START A SIGN PETITION SO WE CAN KILL THE KING OF HYBERN. That sounds like a pretty good plan. He’s on my black list. My top #1. Next to Jurian. HE DESERVES TO DIE.
Oh…And those plot twists… THOSE PLOT TWISTS. I’d be lying if I said they didn’t put my world and heart upside down. But I loved them SOOOO much. I just love to suffer. Ha.
I have a lot of ACOWAR theories but seriously I don’t know what to expect. Hopefully it won’t destroy me and cause me a mayor book hangover like ACOMAF. Maybe everything will be fine. Ha ha. I don’t believe that, either.
I TRIED TO NOT MAKE THIS REVIEW TOO LONG BUT I COULD TALK ABOUT THIS BOOK FOR HOURS (I’ve already done that). So yeah. I’ll leave it here.
