I recently read Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Mist and Fury and here are two words to describe my feelings: incredibly amazing. It was so good and I know that this book beats the first book by far. This sequel was page-turning and spine chilling. It had the perfect mix of high-fantasy and romance. This book weaved the romance and the fantasy so well together that I think this book falls under a whole new category that is an intense mix of fantasy and romance. Throughout the novel, my heart and feels were literally playing a game of tug-o-war.
There is just something so wonderfully unique about Sarah J. Maas’ writing and story plots. Just when you think that Maas can’t add any more fuel to the exciting and mesmerising fire that’s already raging, she adds more fuel and just like a piano it gets louder and louder until the final ending. The ending actually killed me but I don’t think that it’s just the ending that killed me. There are so many twists and turns and I honestly couldn’t stop. Although it did take me a few days to read the novel, I just wanted to take the time to savour and understand everything the world had to offer.
“i am broken and healing but every piece of my heart belongs with you,”
Maas’ writing is so wonderfully unique. She has just the right balance between descriptive and easy to read. Not only that but her style has something distinct about it. It honestly feels like there is fantasy and magic oozing out of every sentence but there is always a hint of darkness. I think that’s what takes this book to a whole new level. It feels like her writing has sucked me into a different world and I can feel like I have transported to a different dimension.
Feyre was an interesting character, as I can see the strong person Maas’ want to depict but at times, she really didn’t click well with me. I loved following her stories but some of her decisions got on my nerves. However, I did admire her bravery throughout the novel. Let’s not forget Rhys. Before I started this novel, I was a hard-core #teamtamlin person but by the fifth chapter, Tamlin got on my nerves. When Rhys came into the picture, I literally imagined Patch as Rhys and I knew from that moment that I would be on Team Rhys! Rhys and Feyre’s relationship was one roller coaster. The romance in this novel was the one that got my heart-wrenching, I swear that without the romance in this novel, the storyline wouldn’t have been good at all. It plays a main part in the story and I honestly can’t wait to see more about it in the next novel.
*SPOILERS* 🙂 The ending was so intense and I can’t believe Feyre is now in the hands of Tamlin! When she said that the bond between her and Rhys was broken I believed her and it honestly blew my mind. When she said it was fake, I actually was so relieved. The drama is too much! I need to know what happens next. Do you guys have any theories? I wonder if Tamlin will be nice again to her and less restricting. I just want the next novel now!
That’s all for my review for A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas! I was trying to make it spoiler free and I think I did a pretty good job! 🙂 Have you read A Court of Mist and Fury yet? What did you think of it? Here is a song that reminded me of the book: It’s Halsey’s Castle but I can only find a cover!
