A Court of Mist and Fury is the second book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. I will included my review of A Court of Thorns and Roses here so you can check it out if you would like to. I will try and keep this review as spoiler free as possible so everyone can read it.
Title: A Court of Mist and Fury
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Audience: New Adult
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.
A Court of Mist and Fury has usurped A Court of Thorns and Roses as one of my favourite books. I love the development that happened within A Court of Mist and Fury, and I can’t wait to see where it will go, especially after the ending.
The character development in A Court of Mist and Fury is some of the best that I have seen recently. I love how Sarah J. Maas develops the characters’ personalities across the book’s length rather than it being quite sudden and all happening in one chapter. I think this allows you to feel more connected to the characters and feels more natural compared to a character changing their opinion and actions dramatically within the space of a couple of paragraphs. I was pleased with Feyre’s character’s direction, especially after the events at the beginning of A Court of Mist and Fury. I also liked that Sarah J. Maas addresses the trauma that certain characters have been through and that it is a process to move on from. I loved being introduced to the new characters that we met in this book; I found myself attached to them from the first page, and I can’t wait to see more of them. This also helped me understand Rhysand and his motivations throughout the book, as we get to know what he has been through.
One thing that I loved in A Court of Mist and Fury is the relationships. I am so happy that Feyre has ended up with Rhysand because I got bad vibes from Tamlin the minute we met him. I think that Feyre has so much more chemistry with Rhysand than she ever did with Tamlin. I can’t wait to see what will happen in their relationship, especially after the events at the end of the book.
A Court of Mist and Fury does also bring us some more world building which I loved. Sarah J. Maas has a brilliant way of describing the setting’s atmosphere and makes you feel as if you are really there. I loved learning about the Night Court and also learning about the Summer Court. I hope we will explore more of the other courts in further books because I find them really interesting, and I can’t wait to see what they are all like.
I can’t wait to read A Court of Wings and Ruin as I am not sure where the story will end. I just hope it ends with a happy ending.
