– Young Adult /Fantasy/Romance/Retelling – Sarah J Maas – Bloomsbury – A Court of Mist and Fury – Book II
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.
I’ve recently published my opinion about ACOTAR and as I was saying there, I started this book as soon as I finished ACOTAR. Even if I had a bit of a bittersweet feeling, I was very intrigued and wanted to know much more about one character in particular. If you have read this book and most likely you would have, you can imagine how happy I was with this book as I have to know better Rhysand and all the Night Court 😻😻😻. I loved this book. I really loved it.
In general, this is the best Sarah’s book that I’ve read so far. I think the descriptions, the action, the intrigue and the pace was really good and everything matches perfectly with the other making this story very easy to be addicted to. In the first book, I’ve mentioned that the magic world was very interesting and, in this one, you can observe and learn more about all the fairies, all the organisation and all the politics aspects. I found all this brilliant and amazing.
- What can I say about Tamlin? In ACOTAR, was not a character that gained my heart. For some reason, I couldn’t find him as perfect as Feyre describe him and couldn’t understand his passivity. In this book…I was so disappointed. Tamlin is an abusive man, he does not know how to deal with problems and uses protection as an excuse to control everything and everyone. Once again, I think he is a coward, sexist and violent. He does not love Feyre, he is obsessed with her.
- Feyre…what an awesome woman. Her determination is inspiring. She has a great evolution through the story. She is strong, powerful, clever, funny…I had some issues with the way that she uses sex to cover problems but I was so happy to see that she changed that and now she talks about problems.
- Rhysand: can I say he is just perfect? and maybe add awesome, brilliant, funny, great actor and the best. you can see shadows of his character in the first book but in this one…you just discover a great character, leader and man.
- The Night Court (Mo, Amren, Azriel and Cassian): I love them. They are funny and the kind of friends that I would like to have. The interactions between them and with Rhysand and/or Feyre are very interesting and made the whole universe much rich and great. Mo is supportive and the person I would go if I need to talk about any problem. Amren is so mysterious and powerful. Azriel has this cold wall around him but I can see he is awesome and Cassian…I just trying to recover from that end…totally heartbroken. In another note, who else wants to live in Velaris?
- Feyre’s family: Nesta is a character that promise a lot and that, I must admit, has been judged too early. I think she has a lot to offer. Elain is that kind of person that lives in a happy world most of the time. I’m very intrigued to see what will happen now after that end.
- Lucien: has been a painful deception. He supposes to be the person that will be there no matter what, the person that will help you in you worst moment and he just looked to other side and let things happened. I think is sad the way he chose and now he is paying for it.
- The King of Hybern: he is the great villain that a good story needs. He is evil, intelligent and I can’t wait for the war coming.
I can’t way for A Court of Wings and Ruin to be published. I need to know what is happening, I need to know about the war that is coming, I need to know how Feyre and Rhysand will deal with things, I need to know about Cassian and all the possible couples that we kind of see at the end of the book. Also, I can’t wait to see Feyre’s revenge.
With ACOTAR I have problems to find the proper rating but with this book, I have not. This is a five stars book without a doubt. Have some tiny problems but, overall, is awesome. So, like many before me…read ACOTAR to get ready for this beauty.
Lots of love,
