Hello friends! Today’s post is my review of A Court of Mist and Fury, the second book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.
Please note that this review may contain very minor spoilers.
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.
The only thing that I disliked about ACOMAF I still hate Tamlin and how abusive he is towards everyone, let alone Feyre, in A Court of Mist and Fury.
What I liked and loved about A Court of Mist and Fury is that one of the first things I found out by re-reading ACOMAF (
for the second time), is that the plot and pace of the story moved faster than what I remembered the pace to be.
The story flows flawlessly and the detailing that goes into this story is another reason to love the overall story as a whole.
I absolutely loved getting to know everyone again. Re-reading ACOMAF made me realize how much I had actually forgotten about the story. Rediscovering things again was one of the more enjoyable moments I had while reading this book.
As much as I love Feyre and Rhys’ story, it’s hard for me to read emotionally because the two of them have been through so much hardship individually, and even more now that they’re facing, essentially, the world with this little group of friends that make up the inner Circle.
I think why I enjoy re-reading ACOMAF was because of the struggles that each character faces; even if we don’t read from their point of view. We still get to know that they’re struggling with. Which is something that I am very aware of since within ACOMAF, we only read from Feyre’s point of view for 99% of the novel.
Reading the last 50 or so pages of A Court of Mist and Fury was… an intense recount of what happened and I’m so stricken by it that when I was re-reading the last 50 pages I put off finishing reading ACOMAF for a week. Just because I didn’t want to re-experience how ACOMAF ends.
The ending to A Court of Mist and Fury is actually less severe than my mind made it out to be. Though the ending is still awful
in the best way.
I loved re-reading A Court of Mist and Fury. I loved getting to know everyone again, and I’m glad that I forgot somethings, which in turn made the story more enjoyable.
I give A Court of Mist and Fury 4 stars.
