A Court of Mist and Fury: A Court of Thorns and Roses (Book 2)
by Sarah J. Maas
“Feyre is immortal.
After rescuing her lover Tamlin from a wicked Faerie Queen, she returns to the Spring Court possessing the powers of the High Fae. But Feyre cannot forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people – nor the bargain she mae with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court.
As Feyre is drawn ever deeper into Rhysand’s dark web of politics and passion, war is looming and an evil far greater than any queen threatens to destory everything Feyre has fought for. She must confront her past, embrace her gifts and decide her fate.”
Even though I had not started A Court of Thorns and Roses, I decided to buy A Court of Mist and Fury to take on honeymoon. I feel that you need to have read A Court of Thorns and Roses to fully understand everything that is going on.
Feyre is back from Under the Mountain in the Spring Court, and transformed. Not just by being turned into a faerie but she also is haunted by what she did. Tamlin after having got her back decides that he will not lose her again, therefore putting her under guard, however Rhysand eventually wants to keep the bargain and ‘steals’ Feyre away. Rhys helps Feyre and she realises what Tamlin has been doing to her, so when he locks her in, Rhys saves her.
Wow! Wow! Wow! I love this book so much! But I think the ending my have broken my heart. I was hooked from beginning to end, I may have read it overnight on the plane on the way home from my honeymoon and then finished it over a couple of days on my lunch-breaks. There were quite a few twists and turns and I was a mess of emotions.
I ended up with completely changing my opinions on some characters and I have grown to love some others. My favourites now have to be Feyre, Rhys, Azriel, Cassian and Mor, I love the Dream Court. I also like Nuala, Cerridwen and Amren. All the characters are so real you feel like you are there. I also love the fact that you are reading from Feyre’s point of view.
I loved all the parts with the Dream Court. It was fun to find out more about Prythian and some of the different courts. I think most of my favourite parts were in the second half, but I loved pretty much all of it, except when Tamlin, Lucien and Rhys were being annoying men!
A Court of Mist and Fury does end on a cliffhanger, this is because it is the second of a trilogy/series (I have heard of both happening), and the next book is currently unnamed (publishing May).
While reading A Court of Mist and Fury, I described it as a mortal turned faerie learning to live as a faerie and between her love and a bargin. I would recommend this book to older teenagers and adults due to mature content. 5 out of 5.
