Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

ACOMAF-cover1Title: A Court of Mist and Fury

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Rating: 5/5

Goodreads Overview:

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.

My Review:

I can’t even begin where to start with this book. I haven’t read a book so far in 2016 that I enjoyed this much. To begin with, I love Sarah J. Maas. I would have to say that she is one of my favorite YA authors and is one damn good story-teller. I have read all of her books. I’ve read all of the Throne of Glass books and I have read A Court of Thorns and Roses. But in all honesty, I think she exceeded my expectations with A Court of Mist and Fury. This book had everything that I look for in Young Adult novels and she nailed it.

If you haven’t read A Court of Thorns and Roses, I would suggest picking that up before reading the rest of my review. There are some spoilers below that could ruin it for you. So if you still need to read the first book, GO BUY IT NOW.

So much was happening in the first part of the book, that I felt just as stressed out at Feyre did. That poor girl has been through so much. She fell in love, went through hell for her lover, Tamlin, and then became Fae…all within a few months. I have so much respect for Feyre. I don’t think I have ever felt so protective over a character the way I feel when it comes to Feyre. She is so strong and beautiful that I want no harm to come to her. So when Tamlin starts being controlling and mean, I started losing respect for him.

Rhysand. Rhysand, now this man is something else. We met him in the first book as the High Lord of the Night Court and also the Queen’s whore. He saved Feyre while they were stuck Under the Mountain. When he made that deal with her to save her life, I wasn’t even a little bit worried about it. The deal was for Feyre to go and live with him in the Night Court for a week each month. Personally, I wouldn’t have even been a little disappointed in this deal.

The bond that Rhys and Feyre have is out of this world. They challenge each other and bring out the best in each other. One thing that I love about this book is the fact that Rhysand lets Feyre make her own choices. He lets her choose to do the things she wants, even if he deems them dangerous, if she wanted to do it, he lets her. Rhys looks out for Feyre so much more than Tamlin ever did that my respect for him grew within the first few chapters he was in.

We finally get to visit the Night Court in this book. That was amazing to see considering last book, we just saw the Spring Court. I loved the atmosphere of the Night Court. Well, when I say that I mean that I love Velaris. We only see a bit of the Court of Nightmares and it was terrifying. But as for the Court of Dreams, as Rhys and his friends call it, I could stay there forever.

Speaking of Rhys’ friends, I loved them all. Cassian, Amren, Mor, and Azriel were such well written characters that I felt like they were real. These warriors are loyal to their High Lord, their friends, and their Court. I love them.

I won’t give away too much about the quests that these characters go on in this book because it would ruin it.  If you have read it, then you know what I’m talking about. The overall plot throughout this book is great. The Night Court’s goal dealing with the upcoming war is thrilling. And the plot twist at the end…WHAT?!

This book is incredible. I can’t really say anything else other than that. The characters are wonderful, the story is wonderful, and this world the Sarah J. Maas has created is lush and beautiful. I highly recommend this book to anyone. I’m positive that you will enjoy it.
