A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) 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.
After reading the first book, how can I resist reading the sequel? The story got more interesting as a wider range of their world was revealed and more characters added! I thought I loved Tamlin from the first book. But wow, I didn’t expect to fall harder with Rhysand. I was expecting a love rivalry, but didn’t expect THE sudden turn! Not as fast-paced as the first and there are parts that I skipped when the story somehow dragged. BUT. I still loooove it as much as the first. The ending was unexpected and it’s cruel to end it that way because I have no other choice but to pick up the next book.
Best parts of the book (spoilers ahead)
- Rhysand, taking away Feyre on her wedding day- oooohhhh…that was breathtaking!
- Velaris. And the story behind it.
- Rhy’s inner circle- Mor, Cassian, Azriel, and Amren, you can’t know them and not get attached. You’d be part of the squad before you know it.
- The sexual tension between Rhys and Feyre- really, I did not expect for these two to be together. I thought it’s just a rivalry of some sort with Tamlin. I also liked how she hated Rhys AT FIRST.
- Stealing Rhy’s ring from the Weaver- haha
- Stealing the book from Tarquin- tsktsk
- When she knew that she’s Rhysand’s mate. Then, Rhysand’s side of the story- goooooosebumps…. Though from what he said, it seemed like the love he had was more of a mating instinct thing. Like something that he has no control of. It just is. But at the same time, that bond made their relationship deeper than love.
- The attack on Velaris- I would be really disappointed not to see (or read?) Feyre in action. I mean, after all the training and mastery of her powers. This was my favorite part!
- The ending. Going back to Spring Court with Tamlin. It caught me off guard- totally a CLIFFHANGER! But I liked it that way. It leaves so much to look forward to in the next book.
