“Love can be a poison.”
That is so very true. I related to this book in a way I never knew I could. I read through this so reverently I didn’t even speak to my husband one evening. In the second book in the ACOTAR series, my mind was blown away by the plot twists, character development, and storytelling elements.
After the trials Feyre faced in A Court of Thorns and Roses, she finds herself utterly broken. She is no longer the girl she was before. Nightmares and memories consume her, destroying who she was. As her marriage to Tamlin approaches, she feels less than worthy of his goodness. Split in two, she must uphold her bargain with Rhysand while navigating a world full of great evils. She may be the key to stopping them, but only if she can master her powers and heal her heart and mind. What does the future hold for Feyre? Will she live out her days as a protected High Lord’s wife, or will she struggle to become something more?
There is absolutely nothing negative I have to say about this book. There aren’t enough words in my vocabulary to describe how it made me feel. I love the way Feyre’s development continues to unfold. Rhysand’s backstory was just *chef’s kiss*. I was genuinely shocked by some of Tamlin’s behaviors and beyond sympathetic for Lucien’s role in the political structure of the Spring Court.
A Court of Mist and Fury is a fantastic sequel. I didn’t know if anything could surpass ACOTAR, but this has quickly become my favorite book in the series. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys slow burn romance, crazy plot twists, and an ending you could never imagine.
I give this five out of five stars. Yet another excellent story by Sarah J. Maas.
