OH. MY. GOODNESS. I must admit, I had the highest expectations for A Court of Mist and Fury because I was such a fan of the first novel (ACOTAR), and Sarah J. Maas exceeded those expectations, triumphantly. From start to finish I felt a part of each and every moment. I can’t believe how drastically my feelings changed for certain characters as this novel went on. I usually can predict where the author leads the story, but Sarah J. Maas surprised me with every page I turned. Each chapter I wanted more and more. I absolutely fell in love with the first novel, and I didn’t think it was possible for a book to overpass those feelings and passion. But ‘A Court of Mist and Fury’, did just that.
Feyre became a whole new person – Strong, independent, brave. She learned to stand up for herself, began to embrace her new form of self, and lead herself on a whole new journey with a list of fresh-faced characters that absolutely stole my heart. I think I fell utterly in love with Rhysand in this novel. (Spoilers may be ahead, please be warned.) We learned his story, more about his character. He was vulnerable, loving, absolutely charming without a doubt. I can’t express enough how much I love his and Feyre’s relationship, their bond. They shared so much passion and love for one another, I haven’t seen such a connection between two characters in awhile. I was rooting for them to be together the whole time. I remember how much I loved her and Tamlin together in the previous book. Oh, how Sarah J. Maas swayed me. Under the Mountain had changed these characters to no end. Feyre thought she wanted Tamlin, but in the end needed Rhys. It was inevitable.
A Court of Mist and Fury was brilliant. From beginning to end. And can we discuss the ending for a second?! Oh, my word. The next novel has so many options for the storyline, after how it concluded in this one. I’m in shock over what happened – absolutely insane, breathtaking. I still have no words.
“You are my salvation, Feyre.”
5+++/5. I give this novel all of the stars of the Night Court.
UGH, I’m in love. And I will be waiting excitedly for the third book of this series. Sarah J. Maas never disappoints.
