A Court of Mist and Fury (ACOTAR #2)
by Sarah J Maas
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 EXPECT ANYTHING LESS THAN 5 STARS FOR A SJ MAAS BOOK BECAUSE YOU SHOULDN’T!!!!
WHERE DO I START IN THIS REVIEW?!
EVERYTHING IS SO RANT WORTHY BUT I DO HAVE TO KEEP EVERYTHING SPOILER FREE.
BUT THIS BOOK WAS SOOOOOO GOOD.
IT KILLED ME.
BYEEEEE EVERYONE!!! I’M GOING TO MARRY RHYSAND NOW.
So let’s begin a very sane review (HAHA, NOT POSSIBLE).
We finished ACOTAR with Amarantha defeated and Tamlin and Feyre returning to the Spring Court, about to live happily ever after. OR SO WE THOUGHT.
Feyre is broken from her experiences Under the Mountain and at the same time trying to accept the changes it forced unto her, including being Fae. Some new feelings in this book since it went in a direction I never saw coming and I LOVED IT.
Some new thoughts:
- HATE TAMLIN
- LOVE RHYSAND
- LOVE THE NIGHT COURT
- GO FEYRE!!! (not really a new thought)
- DAMN MAAS, YOU CAN WRITE SOME STEAMY STUFF
Just putting those out there so I don’t die of internally fangirling. And a warning, THIS IS A BIG BOOK. A BIG STEAMMMMY BOOK.
So, our beloved characters are greeted with another complication, this time bigger and badder than Amarantha’s reign – and I thought it couldn’t get any worst. The King of Hybern wants to invade Prythian and break down the wall, wreaking havoc among faeries and humans. Feyre is forced to use her new Fae abilities to stop him along with the help with our favourite bad boy, Rhysand High Lord of the Night Court. *SWOON*
I ABSOLUTELY ADORE RHYSAND. As Feyre is drawn to him, we read more about his character and the flamboyant hottie that is his facade. I’m in awe with how much we learn about him and the people who are close to him. Despite the fact that I was a Tamlin cheerleader in ACOTAR, I have gone to the dark side. Rhys is EVERYTHING. Feyre and his relationship was based on strength and being equals which was FANTASTIC. They were truly on the same level; they strengthened and understood each other on a level her and Tamlin could never have. YOU KNOW WHAT LEVEL I’M TALKING ABOUT!!!
We are also met with some new and FANTASTIC characters. SJ Maas’ character’s will always be unique. Cassian, Amren, Mor and Azriel who are his inner circle of badass warriors. Their dynamic is hilarious, their banter was light but their relationship ran deep. The connection they have with each other was formed through thousands of years of hardship so the bond they have is incredibly strong and familial. They’re like the Avengers but better and hotter – and they’d beat the Avengers any time.
Feyre’s character development was emotional and achingly beautiful. It was heart-breaking to read her doubt her strength, audacity and worth but it was amazing how her and Rhys were able to work together and strengthen each other. Once again, she blows our minds. A side note, the fashion in this story is INCREDIBLE. How Maas describes the various dresses that Feyre wears I’m like I WANT. The silk and colour and style – Mas not only writes amazingly but she has a taste for fashion. Back on track: Feyre and Rhys’ banter is soooo dirty but sooooo funny. Maas has a talent for writing the different dynamics characters have with each other. They’re always so memorable and will always sending me laughing out loud in public.
As always, Maas’ writing builds a vivid world around you that you can almost touch and feel. Every time I finish one of her books, I dread being born in reality and being like ‘DAMN IT, WHY AREN’T I A BOOK CHARACTER.’
Guys, this is her 6th book!!! How has time flown?! I didn’t even see it and she just keeps getting better and better. Let’s see what she throws at us next.
I. can’t. wait.
Ps. A tip. The Finding Neverland album is perfect for this album. I have never stumbled upon a more perfect pair. So if you’re someone who can read and listen to music at the same time, this album is the one.
