SHE MUST SURRENDER HER HEART TO HEAL A WORLD TORN IN TWO.
Oh holy everything!!!
Before I even begin to review the epicness that is this book I will just tell you a few things:
1. I am not going to be able to due this book justice with my review.
2. As much as I want to spoil it I won’t
3. I have permission from a few friends to use there Goodreads reviews to help me.
4. I am going to fangirl a lot and use words like OMG and AJSBEHAJAODBDNSP!
Okay so here we go!
A Court of Mist and Fury (ACOMAF) follows on from the first book (A Court of Thorns and Roses).
Feyre saved the Fae world in the last book and because of that, she’s gotten powers from all the courts. Powers that Tamlin will not let her unlock for fear of her being hunted.
Life seems pretty well, she’s about to get married to Tamlin soon and she hopes that once they are, the mating bond will kick in. But Feyre can’t forget what she had to do Under the Mountain and it haunts her dreams every night. Then there’s also the bargain she made with Rhysand and who knows when he’ll cash in with that.
But Feyre needs to get away and Rhysand is the only one who can do that. While spending her time with Rhysand she learns a few truths about the war that’s building and about her powers.
Once back with Tamlin however… well he does some pretty bad stuff and Feyre ends up at the Night Court. For good.
See here is where I have to stop because I seriously cannot go any further otherwise I’ll spoil the whole book! I can say though that your heart and feels will go into overdrive, revelations come out and Tamlin… Tamlin is a dick but GOD EVERYTHING WAS JUST AJSIWOEVXBSBWJWOAPKXNXBSJWP!!!
I will quickly delve into the character developments and mention the new characters… without spoiling it as much as I can!
In this book Feyre has grown so much. In the first one, although kickass, she was still trying to find her way in the Fae world. In this one, although a little lost, she manages to find it. And she relishes in it. With her new found powers she’s even more kickass than she was in ACOTAR. She’s a character you can get behind and support. I love how she manages to get over her issues and can finally be happy. I adore Feyre so much!
Tamlin… well its funny how your allegiance changes in the space of two books! I loved Tamlin in the first book but in this one… He was so over-bearing and so… ugh! He’s such a dick in this book. And what he does… god and the ending… what he did… UGH!!!!
Rhysand… my baby, my bae, my love… AHSJDNSJWIWODJNFNDMDKSPSWP!!!! GOD! I liked in the first book, he was the mysterious, dark, alluring guy with secrets and a darkness to him and in this book you see him for who his true self is behind the mask he wears and omg it’s so beautiful and the things he reveals and just GOD I LOVE HIM!
Lucien… I hope he man’s up in the next book because he’s a decent guy but in this one… I like Lucien but he needs to get rid of Tamlin. But seeing as what happened… well. I’m hoping he’ll help (all so mysterious :P)
Nesta and Elain were also mentioned in this one and what happens… I think they are both going to be strong characters in the next book and strong allies too.
Mor, Azriel, Cassian and Amren are brilliant new characters that get introduced and they have such a strong bond between them all. Especially with Rhysand too. I love seeing Rhysand with friends and what a strong friendship it was. They would die for each other. Amren is interesting too because I want to know what she is and I totally want Mor and Azriel together as well as Cassian and Nesta… now that pairing I would love!
Overall the book was just everything and Sarah J Maas is such an amazing writer that you can imagine every scene playing out in your head. And her sexy sexy scenes… GOD! The scenes she writes is better than any erotica book I’ve read! (I read a few) Sarah has a way of making it seem so beautiful and pure, despite the sexiness of it 😉 and the ones in this book…. DAMN!
Sarah has fast become on of my all time favourite authors. I just love how she manages to make you laugh and then cry and then get angry and then die from feels only to have them mend again in a chapter is amazing! If you can feel all that in one chapter then imagine what a whole book is like!
She’s just a goddess and her books are everything. These books and the Throne of Glass books.
I just love her.
And if my review still hasnt sold you on reading this book (Read A Court of Thorns and Roses first though!) then I’ll now enter the reviews from my friends… (I had permission… I’m not stealing them!)
The first is from Rebecca 🙂
Isn’t it wonderful how in a series a creator can make you change “teams”? The previous bad guy may seem good after all & vice versa. You start to hate who you loved, and love who you hated?
I love that Feyre wasn’t alright after what she went through in ACOTAR, makes her more real. We see that “happily ever after” may not be all we thought it would be. What is the cost of being revived by 7 powerful High Fae Lords? How was she affected?
With Feyre’s owed time to Rhysand (I know we’ve all been waiting to see what that would be like) we “delve” into the Persephone & Hades myth (Greek mythology yay, I’m Greek). The Night Court is sooo not what you expect, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t perilous. Grinning through must of the book, due to Rhys, especially since he is as Feyre calls him “a shameless flirt”
This story is so alive, you feel like you are living it & the simmering danger. Gut-wrenching, exciting, dangerous, breath-snagging, sexy and that plot twist that will have you screaming & compel you to throw your book/reader at the wall (don’t destroy your reader).
I WORSHIP this book *bowing down to Sarah. J. Maas’s excellence. *
The next is from Debora 🙂
This is definitely one of the best pieces of fantasy I’ve read. Sarah J. Maas never disappoints.
With a smooth start, ACOMAF had me at the very first page. The main character gradually developed amazingly throughout this fantastic roller coaster.
The world of the Fae that Sarah brought to life this time around is just one those worlds that goes beyond the magic. There was so much beauty in the little details of the courts that I was at times left speechless.
One of my favourite things with ACOMAF was the whole romance between the main characters, once again it didn’t feel rushed at all and the female lead was actually hesitant and suffering, at times struggling with all the emotional turmoil. She struggled with her feelings and it only made the characters all the more real.
The build up towards the end was great and it didn’t feel rushed at all even though a lot happened really fast.
The fight scenes were so easy to visualise that at times I felt like I was watching it on a screen rather than reading a book.
I would totally recommend you read A Court Of Thorns And Roses (First book) it is gripping from page one.
I kept switching between the ebook and the audio book because it was more convenient for me and to be honest I really like this audio book. So if you’re not into audio books yet or even if you are, i give this one a thumbs up 😉
Thank you so so much girls!
