Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses
A Court of Mist and Fury
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.
We are back in Prythian, the fabulous and dangerous world of the elves. Feyre has escaped from the bowels of the mountain and managed to break the curse that has lain over the Court of Spring for 50 years. The price of freedom, however, is her broken soul.
Feyre – A Court of Mist and Fury
Feyre falls into a very deep emotional hole. The horrors she experienced in Amarantha’s captivity haunt her, she suffers physically and mentally. The blood of the elves she killed to save her love is still on her hands. She sees no salvation for her soul. She has sacrificed herself and her heart to save Tamlin and Prythian. The author takes us by the hand through Feyre’s dark thoughts. We experience the suffering together and her attempts to justify the humans’ attitude towards her. The human girl from the first book is dead, and the elf who survived is very different from the strong and fierce Feyre we loved.
In the second part of the series, we see how big the rift between Tamlin and Feyre has become. The situation is made worse by the behavior of the Great Lord of the Spring Court and his lack of understanding. He firmly believes that he must keep Feyre away from any danger, even if that means locking her in the castle. Fear can be a bad advisor, and the power of love can be devastating.
“I will never be weak and defenseless again. I will not let them break me. To tame me. “
The mistress of the Spring Court has made a deal in the bowels of the mountain, in exchange for Rhysand’s help. Time is passing and Feyre is bound to keep it and do her part.
Is the great lord of the Court of Night really the embodiment of the nightmares of elves and men?
Has Feyre managed to look beneath his armor?
Will she be able to understand Rhysand’s motives?
Tamlin’s mortal enemy sees it as his duty to help the elf with the human soul cast off the shackles of insecurity. Eventually Feyre sees the truth, realizes how badly she was treated. She sees how painful it is to love her Great Lord when she feels freedom is a privilege and not a right. Feyre makes a fateful decision on which more than her fate will depend.
“For the stars that listen to us, and for the dreams that come true.”
The threat to the world has not gone away. Amarantha was only the beginning, just one of the generals of a powerful king overseas determined to take back the lands of the humans. The wall separating the two worlds is the only thing stopping him, but will it last?
With the discovery of the new threat, it becomes clear that only Feyre has the power to control the ancient magic. The Cursebreaker inherited a particle of power from each of the Great Lords upon her resurrection. She is the only obstacle to the King of Hibern. She just have to learn to use and control your powers.
We really like this book because it shows the true face of Rhysand. His past and what he went through during the years of slavery. The most powerful of the Great Lords who hides his broken soul.
“Everything I love is always being taken away from me.”
Handsome, arrogant, and unprecedentedly strong, he is a compelling character. In the first book he was Feyre’s pillar of strength in her battle with Amarantha, in A Court of Mist and Fury he becomes something much greater.
A Court of Mist and Fury
The ending of “A Court of Mist and Fury” is completely unexpected. Whereas in “A Court of Thorns and Roses” we experienced our happy ending as a fairy tale, in “A Court of Mist and Fury” there is an explosion of twists and turns.
What we did not like about the book was the over-the-top eroticism. Yes, there were love scenes in “A Court of Roses and Thorns,” but this is where Sarah J. Maas really reaches new heights. The book is 100% red hot, we’d even raise the age limit from 16+ to 18+. It could spare a few details.
As for the book itself, we can say that we love the cover. We are fans of hardcovers, and they feel unique. The writing is easy to read, the author’s style is engaging, and the book is very easy to read.
