Review: A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas
Summary from Goodreads:
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.
With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
I'm not completely sure what my true feelings are about this novel, I had an extremely hard time reading it. That may have been my own personal state at the time or just the massive length of it and the pacing that through me off. And I was kind of thrown off by the sexuality in the novel, it could have been toned down a lot, espically for a teen novel.
I was not a huge fan of some of the characterization changes, mainly with Tamlin, and how he became a huge dick in this novel.
I still like Feyre as a main character but it would have been interesting to see others POVS, like Tamlin or Lucien. However, I did enjoy learning more about Rhys and meeting various new and interesting characters and the focus on other parts of the world.
The ending was interesting, the cliffhanger was one of the main reasons why I'm coming back to this series.
I'm still going to go ahead and read the next novel in the series, and hope that I enjoy that one more.
