A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Summary: Though Feyre now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, but as she navigates the feared Night Court’s dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms–and she might be key to stopping it.

A Court of Mist and Fury is the sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses.

It follows Feyre’s adjustment to her new immortality and delves deeper into the Fae world.

I enjoy Sarah J. Maas’s writing for the most part. It’s full of suspense, the plot is very interesting, and the characters are loveable. However, I often found myself mixing up this series with her other series, the Throne of Glass series. I still kept on getting hit by deja vu throughout. But, I enjoyed reading A Court of Mist and Fury. I didn’t set it down until I finished it.

I loved all of the characters. They seemed real and I could see why Feyre befriended them. They had a depth to them that made it clear that they weren’t just part of the background. Feyre’s interactions with them were entertaining and made sense. I also liked Feyre herself. A lot of the time, protagonist can be aggravating because they make decisions that are unrealistic and just not smart, but Feyre is someone whose decisions you can fully support.

A Court of Mist and Fury is one of those books that’s almost all lead up. There are a few confrontations and plot twists, but we all know that we’re in for a long journey. This is not to say that it’s boring, but that you have to have patience. The big confrontation of this book doesn’t come until the end, and even then, you know that the finale isn’t going to be coming until at least 3 more books have passed.

Overall, I recommend A Court of Mist and Fury to anyone who’s read A Court of Thorns and Roses and even remotely liked it. For those who haven’t read the series, I recommend it to everyone except those that don’t like long series. I give it a 5/5. –Kara Eng
