“Feyre Cursebreaker, Defender of the Rainbow.”
I’ve finished the savage beast that was A Court of Mist and Fury. I’m trying to think of where to start with this book.
This book was a lot to read, but I managed to get through it fine. I brought this to my doctors appointments so many times this past week that I think my doctor knows the name of this book now.
Feyre isn’t the same after A Court of Thorns and Roses. The things that she’s had to do stay with her and now they torment her through nightmares and guilt.
The next thing that I’m supposed to say is that Tamlin helped and supported her. But no. That’s not what happens, and honestly, I’m going to call out on the fact that that is not Tamlin’s true character. Throughout the entire book whenever there was a mention of Tamlin, I’d get so mad because it felt like I was reading about someone else!
That aside, A Court of Mist and Fury was a huge improvement from the first book.
The addition of characters was amazing. I appreciated the fact that Mor and Amren were female characters within this book. A female character that has survived unspeakable things even for our main character? Why not? A female that is scary to the High Lord of the Night Court? Why not?
Sarah J. Maas doesn’t shy from making her characters go through things that can sometimes be glorified, and I honestly love her for that.
The world building of the Night Court was one of the best that I’ve read this year, I have dozens of pictures in my head that I want to draw out for the Night Court (but first I need talent). :D Add on the slow building, effing amazing romance with the character development and you’ve got me!
I wish, so much in my heart that I could give this book five stars, but there are just some things that I mentioned above with Tamlin that really, really put me off. Really, it’s more than that one thing, but I don’t want to make this review too long by listing them. So if you’ve read the book, then hopefully you’ll understand. But that doesn’t mean that this isn’t a favorite of the year. :P
A huge improvement from the first book, and the ending literally killed me. I hope you’re happy, Sarah J. Maas.
