A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas


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.


This is how you do a sequel. 
Sarah J. Maas has taken her world to a whole new level, and also her characters. It was great from beginning to end, little time to take a breath, just the way I like my books. Feyre has changed, it was clear at the end of ACOTAR she was gonna pay a high price for the ordeal she had to go through to defeat Amarantha, but it still surprised me. And Tamlin, any slight affection I could've felt for the whiny bastard disappeared quite fast. 
Rhysand was brilliant, I absolutely loved getting to know him better, trying to figure him out. The endless banter between him and Feyre is entertaining as hell. 
The introduction of the new characters was on point. Mor, Cassian, Azriel, and Armen are an amazing lot. They have gone through unspeakable things, they're hurt, and still are an example of what real friends are like.
The plot twists were good, a few actually took me by surprise. 
That end was probably the best part, I was actually yelling at the book. You know a book is good when you act like a total lunatic and don't care if the people around you look at you wide-eyed. 

PS: I was so right about what Rhys saw at the end of ACOTAR. Sherlock Holmes who?

  1. Although this is not the type of book that an old coot like me is likely to read (note that I said "like me" because many old coots love stories whose genesis might be in the Arthurian Legend or Avalon), I know enough about both of Ms. Maas' works to buy them as a pair for a special friend. Thank you for sharing your review, Selene.

    P.S. I enjoy your writing style.

    1. Thanks, Paula! I am really enjoying Sarah J. Maas writing style. And I'm a total fool for Arthurian-like stories.

  2. I didn't love the book as much as the last time I read it but still my favorite Sarah J. Maas book!
