A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas

I loved Tamlin in the first book, but I also loved Rhys. This series really makes me rethink my need for sleep. I have to be at work by 6 a.m. tomorrow, I don't need to sleep for a 14 hour shift, nope, not at all. On to book 3. Then I will switch to the audio book and run the sound through my blutooth headset so no one knows I am listening to anything, just waiting on a phone call. It'll work!

 

I can't believe I thought this series was for young adults.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas

I went into this book scared. There's so much hype around this series and Rhysand that I was actually a little afraid that I wouldn't like this book because my expectations were too high or because the story/character didn't appeal to me (wouldn't be the first time I didn't like a hyped book). I really wanted to love this series as much as the next person, and I'm so glad I ended up enjoying it. 


ACOMAF is drastically different from the first book. The characters are incredibly different from the characters they were in the first book, particularly Feyre and Tamlin, as well as Lucien. Lucien was less of an offender in this book, but only because he didn't actually do anything, compared to Tamlin actively being a possessive asshole. His character changes dramatically in this book and it's pretty clear from the beginning the reader isn't supposed to root for Feyre and Tamlin anymore. Tamlin becomes possessive and controlling, not that he wasn't possessive to begin with to a certain extent, but those characteristics are pushed to an extreme that makes me cringe. 


Thankfully, for the majority of the book, Tamlin is nowhere to be seen, at least physically. One of my issues that kept this book from being a full 5 stars, was that Feyre constantly compared Rhysand to Tamlin. It felt like overkill constantly being reminded of how horrible Tamlin became and comparing them against each other probably isn't a good thing. I'm sure Rhys didn't appreciate it because he tries so hard to be so different from Tamlin where it counts. Yes they're both possessive, but I actually didn't mind Rhysand's possessiveness nearly as much as Tamlin's. Rhysand doesn't treat Feyre like an object and that's essentially the difference there.


I could go on and on about Rhysand and I'm sure I'm not the first one that could do that or wants to do that. There's a good reason why everyone loves him as a character. I loved the layers he has and how his character develops over the course of this book. The romance is so slow burn and flirtatious and I loved it so much. The affection and attraction develops over time and seems so much more real. It's a ship I will gladly root for. 


There's a whole new cast of characters in this book and they're so much more developed than the characters at the Spring Court. Aside from Tamlin, Lucien was the only other character with a backstory and yeah it was sad, but I never really felt for him. The Night Court characters so much more developed and way more likeable. Feyre also develops so much more and grows as a person. Feyre's development is so important, especially to the romance aspects of the book. It allows the romance to not be a love triangle, but to show it more as a people change and drift apart from each other.

 

There were a few other issues I had with the book, mainly with the fact that this book was long and probably didn't need to be 600+ pages. It was completely character driven, up until the last parts of the book and while I do love the characters, I would have liked a little more plot or possibly a faster pace. The motivations for the villains of this book are a little unclear to me, or don't quite make complete sense, but I don't want to spoil so that's all I'll say about that.


The world Sarah J. Maas created is breathtaking. The descriptions are vivid and the beautiful world she created was easy to picture. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will hopefully be getting to ACOWAR really soon.

A Court of Mist and Fury/ Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas

4.5 stars

Oh god. This book. this book had everything I didn't know I need. It got me hyperventilating, laughing, ranting, fanning myself (yes to the steamy scenes!) and on the brink of tears. 

I am so emotionally invested in this book I'm having a really hard time not giving away any spoilers (don't worry this IS a spoiler-free review). 

 

okay so the book picks up after the events of the first book in the series- A Court of Thorns and Roses, Feyre and Tamlin are back in the spring court and all is well. Sort of. I'm walking on really thin ice right now with the spoilers but let's just say that we see a definite change in the nature of Feyre and Tamlin's relationship following the events of Under The Mountain with Amarantha- both Tamlin and Feyre are (obviously) affected by their time there, and this causes changes in behaviour, while some more drastic than others.

-Which kind of brings me to my main problem with this book. I felt like the change in Tamlin's behaviour was too abrupt and too severe (and perhaps a little forced), but as I read on, and also talked to other readers about it, I'd realized all the hints for that development were already in the first book (which makes me want to go back and re-read the first book to really understand in depth events that happened and became clearer with the serious plot twists that occur in ACOMAF), which, once again, comes to prove what a genius Sarah J. Maas is.

 

The world building in this book continues to be beautiful and vivid. We are introduced to new characters and places we never knew even existed before, the plot is well-thought-out. 

A new threat comes out to play, and Feyre's character takes on new challenges, she develops and unravels in a very realistic way as she struggles with the aftermath of ACOTAR, her newly-found powers and her heart. we get to see more of her sisters, Elaine and Nesta, and are left wanting more. 

 

another character that we got to know more (much more) is Rhysand. It's very easy to fall in love with his character, his wit, his  friends and his will to survive and protect his loved ones. The only problem I had with him is the same problem I had with Tamlin, only in reverse. And that is ALL I'm going to say about that. other than that, I absolutely loved him and loved learning more about his past, and especially his past with Tamlin. and his body. Duh. 

 

I'm scared to say any more that might spoil you, but PLEASE if you are wary of the hype and not sure if to pick it up- pick it up! honestly, I had found myself disappointed by over-hyped books, but trust me on this one and TRUST THE HYPE! 

 

Read it, and let me know what YOU think!

Georgie xxxxxx

 

Update- I actually DID end up reading the first book again, and if you felt like me then I DO recommend that you'd do the same- it cleared a lot of things up for me, and with this new point of view of Tamlin, the book and the relationships in it really transform. Also, I don't remember if I'd said it before, but I think it's really fitting that Sarah has written it the that she did, because I feel like this is how most of these relationships start- out of nowhere, and the nature of the relationship only dawns on you after a while or after someone else points it out to you (like Rhys did).

Book Review : A court of mist and fury sarah J . Maas
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas

September 22- June 2

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 torn apart

Review : I freaking loved this book so much . I hate Tamlin though he can go far far away he was totally abusive to Feyre and there going to get married and she wanted someone to stop it and then Rhys shows up yess I love Rhys he is trying to help with her power and teaching her to write and read . Tamlin is telling feyre what to fucking do and I can't stand him I wanted to punch him in the throat . He finally traps Feyre in the house and she freaks out and More takes Feyre to the night court and then Feyre meets everyone in the night court I love them all Cassian , Azriel and Amren . I love Feyre and Rhy's relationship in this book They are both very smart ass towards each other . So the guy hyburn is trying to tear down the wall of the human world WTF he's crazy and Ryhs and ferye and everyone else want peace . Feyre has been training with Cassian to fight and there were many scenes where Feyre was checking out Rhysand oh god . Feyre and Amren end up taking this book and almost drown . I hate the fucking queens in this book fucking bitches . I ship Cassian and Nesta so much they butt heads with each other a lot . I so knew Ryhs was going to be Feyre's mate Ryhs's gets shot by ash arrows and then he gets taken and Feyre fucking kills those people so badassand she needs to heal him so she traps the surial again and the surial tells Feyre Rhy's is her mate and I knew it was coming but I screamed and I'm pretty sure Surial ships Rhy's and Feyre Ha . And she's mad at Rhy's so she spends time alone and she paints and Rhy's vists her and he tells her before they met he would dream about her and she accepts being his mate and then they have wow intense sex just oh my god . So Everyone walks into this big trap with Hyburn and fucking Jurian and they shot Azriel with an ash arrow and I'm freaking out I just want everyone to be alive and fucking Tamlin shows up fucking tool and he demands Feyre come with him ughhhh hate him and then they made Feyre's sisters feye and Elain is Lucian's mate OMFG . And cassian's wings oh god so Feyre fakes that she was like under Ryhs spell . And Feyre is High lady of the night court I loved this book amazing .
Quotes:
To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys."
Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”

“I fell in love with you, smartass, because you were one of us—because you weren’t afraid of me, and you decided to end your spectacular victory by throwing that piece of bone at Amarantha like a javelin. I felt Cassian’s spirit beside me in that moment, and could have sworn I heard him say, ‘If you don’t marry her, you stupid prick, I will.


When you spend so long trapped in darkness, Lucien, you find that the darkness begins to stare back.

“I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal.
I was a survivor, and I was strong.
I would not be weak, or helpless again
I would not, could not be broken. Tamed.


She is my mate. And my spy,' I said too quietly. 'And she is the High Lady of the Night Court.'
'What?' Mor whsipered.
I caressed a mental finger down that bond now hidden deep, deep within us, and said, 'If they had removed her other glove, they would have seen a second tatoo on her right arm. The twin to the other. Inked last night, when we crept out, found a priestess, and I swore her in as my High Lady.' (...) 'Not consort, not wife. Feyre is High Lady of the Night Court.' My equal in every way; she would wear my crown, sit on a throne beside mine. Never sidelined, never designated to breeding and parties and child rearing. My queen.”


Hello, Feyre darling,” he purred.”


I was burning through books every day - stories about people and places I'd never heard of. They were perhaps the only thing that kept me from teetering into utter despair.

“Say it,” I gritted out.
“The High Lord of the Night Court is your mate.


When you lick me,” he said roughly, “I want to be alone—far away from everyone. Because when you lick me, Feyre,” he said, pressing nipping kisses to my jaw, my neck, “I’m going to let myself roar loud enough to bring down a mountain.

Aware of every breath, every movement, I sat in his lap. His hands gently braced my hips as I studied his face. “And now I want you to know, Rhysand, that I love you. I want you to know … ” His lips trembled, and I brushed away the tear that escaped down his cheek. “I want you to know,” I whispered, “that I am broken and healing, but every piece of my heart belongs to you. And I am honored—honored to be your mate.”
His arms wrapped around me and he pressed his forehead to my shoulder, his body shaking. I stroked a hand through his silken hair.
“I love you,” I said again. I hadn’t dared say the words in my head. “And I’d endure every second of it over again so I could find you. And if war comes, we’ll face it. Together. I won’t let them take me from you. And I won’t let them take you from me, either.”
Rhys looked up, his face gleaming with tears. He went still as I leaned in, kissing away one tear. Then the other. As he had once kissed away mine.
When my lips were wet and salty with them, I pulled back far enough to see his eyes. “You’re mine,” I breathed.”

Why should I bother defending myself," Nesta said with lethal cold, "to a male who is so puffed up on his own sense of importance there's barely enough space in the room for his enormous head?

“You Illyrian males are insufferable.
Rhys had just said, Good thing we make up for it with impressive wingspans.”

I moaned then, tilting my head back to give him better access. His hands clamped on my waist, then moved—one going to cup my rear, the other sliding between us.
This—this moment, when it was him and me and nothing between our bodies …
His tongue scraped the roof of my mouth as he dragged a finger down the center of me, and I gasped, my back arching. “Feyre,” he said against my lips, my name like a prayer more devout than any Ianthe had offered up to the Cauldron on that dark solstice morning.
His tongue swept my mouth again, in time to the finger that he slipped inside of me. My hips undulated, demanding more, craving the fullness of him, and his growl reverberated in my chest as he added another finger.
I moved on him. Lightning lashed through my veins, and my focus narrowed to his fingers, his mouth, his body on mine. His palm pushed against the bundle of nerves at the apex of my thighs, and I groaned his name as I shattered”



I’m surprised there aren’t more mirrors in this house, since you seem to love looking at yourself so much.
