A Court of Mist and Fury | Review
My first thought when finishing this book was: I need to read that again. Follow quickly by: Why won’t Goodreads let me rate something with 5 million stars?!?
I just. Ugh. I don’t even know where to start! So many people that I’ve talked to after reading this book feel like they need to re-read it because so much happens in it. I’ve also heard a lot of comments about having a major book hangover that nothing can cure, so just a heads up!
So hopefully you’ve read A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. If not, go read it. Now. Yes, a quick synopsis is that it’s a re-telling of Beauty and the Beast, but it is so much more than that, especially once you get into A Court of Mist and Fury (ACOMAF from here on out for typing ease).
Feyre grows by leaps and bounds in this book. All the characters do really, but I have so much more love for Feyre now. Without spoiling anything, there’s a huge shift that happens that I don’t think anyone on the face of the planet was expecting but IMO it was so realistic and human and…. perfect. It allowed for so much character growth and plot twists and turns. Feyre really comes into her own in this book.
And the romance level in ACOMAF! Oh man, this book was steamy! Like totally unexpected but very much appreciated.
I really loved this book. Like it shot straight to the #1 spot on my favorite book list. I’m already planning on re-reading it later this summer, along with all of Maas’s work.
My favorite line: “When you spend so long trapped in darkness, Lucien, you find that the darkness begins to stare back.”
My favorite visual: Feyre’s crowns/diadems.
Rating: 5 stars
