Review | A Court of Mist and Fury – Sarah J. Maas

As you probably know I’m currently rereading all of Sarah J. Maas’ books in anticipation of the release of Crescent City #3. The last review I shared was of A Court of Thorns and Roses so today I wanted to share my thoughts on the second book in that series; A Court of Mist and Fury. There might be some small spoilers for the book so beware if you haven’t read this one yet.

Review | A Court of Mist and Fury – Sarah J. Maas

The seductive and stunning #1 New York Times bestselling sequel to Sarah J. Maas's spellbinding A Court of Thorns and Roses .
Feyre has undergone more trials than one human woman can carry in her heart. Though she's now been granted the powers and lifespan of the High Fae, she is haunted by her time Under the Mountain and the terrible deeds she performed to save the lives of Tamlin and his people.
As her marriage to Tamlin approaches, Feyre's hollowness and nightmares consume her. She finds herself split into two different one who upholds her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court, and one who lives out her life in the Spring Court with Tamlin. While Feyre navigates a dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms. She might just be the 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 in turmoil.
Bestselling author Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her dazzling, sexy, action-packed series to new heights.

We start the book pretty soon after the first book ended. This is not my favorite part of the story at all haha. I was never really a fan of Tamlin and Feyre’s relationship with him and I will say it was validating seeing it all play out like it did. It was also interesting to see Feyre deal with everything that happened under the Mountain. A lot of fantasy books skip over all the trauma and that always annoys me. I’m so happy it was adressed in this one. And no, it wasn’t perfect but I think it was pretty well done.

“To the stars who listen—and the dreams that are answered.”

I adore the characters in this book (and this series) and I think they are what made this book so enjoyable for me. Rhys was already interesting to me in the first book and I really loved getting to know him better in this one. And the Inner Circle was just chef’s kiss! I’m a big fan of the found family trope and it was really well done in this book. To me it’s something Sarah J. Maas excels at, I love the Inner Circle, I love the Cadre from the Throne of Glass series and I love what’s starting to form in the Crescent City books.

“There are good days and hard days for me—even now. Don’t let the hard days win.”

The plot was enjoyable and while the twists weren’t new to me I still liked reading it all again. Especially towards the ending! I read A Court of Silver Flames not too long ago for the first time and I think some of the things happening in this book lead up to the plot of ACOSF so that was cool to see.

Overall I just had a good time rereading this but was also reminded that to me the Throne of Glass series is really superieur. As this used to be my favorite book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series I just know I will never change my mind on that haha. I do have to shout out the Suriel, possibly my favorite character in this series haha.

How do you feel about this series? And about this book specifically? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
