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 thought going into this book that I knew where it was going. Well...I did not. Not even a little bit. And I am SO glad that I was wrong.
A Court of Mist and Fury picks up a little bit after the events of A Court of Thorns and Roses. And it starts out with a bang(hehehe). It really didn't take long for this book to dive into the action that I loved in the first book, and for my heart to start feeling those feels again. I love that Maas wasted no time moving the story along, even if it was in a very surprising(for me anyways) direction.
The world building was okay in book one, but in ACOMAF it is incredible. I felt like I could picture the Night Court perfectly, and as I was reading I longed to be there. Then there was one near vomit-inducing scene(don't worry, I think that's the reaction Sarah was going for) that actually still gives me goosebumps to think about, it was described so vividly. A round of applause goes to Maas for not only creating this world, but expanding upon it and making it immensely better in this book.
Now, the story. Oh, the story. This story is so beautiful. It's so hard for me to keep this spoiler free, because all I really want to do is gush about the details that make it beautiful. And that's what did it. The detail and thought that was so obviously put into this story make it one that is going to stay with me forever. I think about it all the time, replaying moments in my head over and over. Everything that happened felt like it happened on purpose and was there to progress the story, and it worked so well. Everything culminated to a heart wrenching climax that gutted me completely and then turned around and became one of my favorite endings I've ever read.
It's actually beginning to feel like magic, the way Sarah J. Maas tops herself with each book she writes. A Court of Mist and Fury is a testament to Maas’ storytelling abilities, and it will forever hold a special place in my heart.
