A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas // Book Reviews

Hey hey!

Today I’ve got a review for A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas because I haven’t posted one in a VERY long time. This review has a couple of spoilers about a couple of characters (Tamlin and Rhysand) but if you don’t care, keep reading! If you’re still weighing up whether you should read this novel but want to get a feel of the book, you should probably stop reading once you get to CHARACTERS. So, these are my thoughts!!

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.


GENERAL THOUGHTS

Great. More territorial fae.

I was rather disappointed with this sequel and I think a majority of this was because of my huge expectations and the massive amount of hype. I have very conflicting thoughts about this book and the characters.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas // Book Reviews

Hey hey!

I’ve got a very, very long spoilerish review for Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses. This means that the review has very minor spoilers scattered throughout and and spoiler section at the end. So if you haven’t read this book, I think it’s okay to read most of the review. Just skip the last section.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.


GENERAL THOUGHTS

I really enjoyed the concept of this world and different courts that Sarah J. Maas has created. However, a lot of the events were way too unrealistically easy. I wanted to enjoy it but I just couldn’t fully.
