I love Sarah J. Maas. I met her at the Texas Teen Book Festival in 2014, where I got my Throne of Glass book signed. (And I’m meeting her again in a couple of weeks at BookPeople!) Her books are my absolute favorite, including her newest one A Court of Mist And Fury—the sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses.
I thought I would take a look at some reviews to see what people were saying about the sequel, and I was happy to see that fans agree with me—that the first book A Court of Thorns And Roses was good, but A Court of Mist And Fury is…amazing! 10 out of 10! 5 stars!
Alright, so here’s my summary. (And obviously, don’t read this if you haven’t read the first book.)
Feyre made big sacrifices for Tamlin’s people, including now being High Fae. Her spirit is broken, though, because she can’t forget the innocents she was forced to kill in order to save the lives of others. After what happened Under the Mountain, Tamlin is the only thing that keeps her happy. But Tamlin isn’t realizing that Feyre doesn’t want to be in the Spring Court, known as the “High Lord’s Bride.” Feyre is lost: She loves Tamlin, but he’s become way too overprotective of her, and she feels trapped.
Then there’s the bargain she made with the mysterious High Lord Rhysand. When she visits the Night Court, she is taken to a place of dreams and nightmares. As she explores the breath-taking land and meets new people, Feyre realizes she must make a choice: To be with Tamlin, the man she loves, but have no freedom…or live with Rhysand and her new friends, where she can live the life she always wanted.
Oh, and there’s a new evil, but let’s not get into that. ☺
A Court of Mist And Fury is 624 pages long, and I didn’t want it to end. I need the next book now. The story is so good, the new characters are perfect (Go Cassian!), and the romance is sweet. (Not talking about the steamy stuff, haha!) If you enjoyed the first book, (and even if you didn’t) you MUST read the sequel. Like now! It’s a total game-changer. Why are you still here? Go get it! ☺
