Book: “A Court of Mist and Fury” by Sarah J. Maas
Genre: YA Fantasy
Rating: 5/5 Stars
“A Court of Mist and Fury” is the second book in the “A Court of Thorns and Roses” series by Sarah J. Maas. After the defeat of Amarantha, Feyre returns to the Spring court as a newborn fae. With new powers to harness and continental conflict on the horizon, Feyre has quite the journey ahead of her.
The second portion of the series is chock full of magic, passion, danger and surprises. After enjoying the first book, I was extremely excited to jump into this one. It did not disappoint! This book was even better than the first and moved quickly. The novel is not a standalone, so readers should definitely start with book one before picking up “A Court of Mist and Fury.” However, once readers digest book one and the world building has been completed, this second installment is a roller coaster ride that can be truly appreciated.
The main focus of this book is the development of Rhysand’s character and his relationship with Feyre. According to the deal they made in book one, Feyre is forced to spend a week with him each month at the Night Court. This interaction helps to expand upon the main heroine in addition to introducing and evolving Rhys.
Recommendations: Read this series in order. You may need to push through the first half of ACOTAR to really get invested in the story… but do it. The series is worth it!
Blogger’s Note: All I can say is CHAPTER 55. Oh my goodness. If you don’t know already, read it and you will!
