The Cover: I adore this cover and honestly it’s my favorite cover of this series. Feyre looks strong and powerful and I don’t even care that I can’t see her face because she looks THAT fierce.
Basics: A Court Of Mist And Fury was released on May 3rd, 2016, published by Bloomsbury USA and is 626 pages long. Genre wise A Court Of Mist and Fury belongs to belongs to Young Adult, Fantasy, Fiction and Romance.
Description: 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.
Overall thoughts: What a ride A Court Of Mist and Fury was! I haven’t read a book this long since Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and I don’t regret any of it. Sarah J. Maas is one of the best authors of all time and this book is just proof of the magic she possesses. Last time we left Feyre she was back in the Spring Court experiencing a new life, literally. Feyre has been turned into an immortal fae, destined to live forever; she may be fae now but there is something inside her now, something that is just pulsating to get out. On top of getting used to her new life and body, the Spring Court is rebuilding and Tamlin isn’t quite the Tamlin she remembered. What is exactly Feyre’s role in Spring Court and how does she fit in there? That’s only the beginning of her problems.
We thought with the demise of the wretched Amarantha that Phythian would finally be at peace, along Feyre was reunited with her true, love. She thought that happily ever after wasn’t too far from the horizon. But Feyre is still plagued with what happened under the Mountain and can’t help notice the distance between her and Tamlin. Again…everything isn’t always what it seems. When everything seems hopeless for Feyre, the person to comes to her rescue is Rhysand of all people, the High Lord of the Night Court. Feyre and company may of escaped from Under the Mountain and broke the curse on Phythian but the trouble for Feyre and company are only the beginning.
A Court of Mist and Fury is one of the best books I have ever read and I highly suggest reading it immediately or adding to your to read list. Another reason I love this book so much that I can guarantee you that you will be able to relate to one of these characters and their experiences, good or bad. As a reader being able to relate to a character personally for me, makes me love the book even more and I’m sure the same could be said for you! My review of the third book in this series, A Court Of Wings and Ruin will be out soon!
