Goodreads Synopsis:
Feyre is immortal.
After rescuing her lover Tamlin from a wicked Faerie Queen, she returns to the Spring Court possessing the powers of the High Fae. But Feyre cannot forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people – nor the bargain she made with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court.
As Feyre is drawn ever deeper into Rhysand’s dark web of politics and passion, war is looming and an evil far greater than any queen threatens to destroy everything Feyre has fought for. She must confront her past, embrace her gifts and decide her fate.
She must surrender her heart to heal a world torn in two.

Review:
I have waited so long for this book. Basically since I’ve finished A Court of Thorns and Roses which was a year ago. And when I say I loved ACOTAR, let me tell you: A Court of Mist and Fury was even better. Even though I didn’t really have time to read, I read whenever I could and finished the book in just a few days and I need more more more.
What I love most about this book is how realistically the characters are portrayed, not only regarding the character itself, but also how Sarah J. Maas’ writing style interacts with them. Most of the characters have suffered a lot and all of them have a trauma. I could feel with all of these characters, suffered with them. The effects a trauma can have and what mentally and physically abuse can do to a person, and possible ways of dealing with them, are described so well and realistically. And you can really see the changes, especially in Feyre. The characters keep growing and I got more and more attached. And the characters who are newly introduced are just awesome. There are just so many different characters, interacting so well (or not…) with each other, I love it.
The world building continued to be fantastic, showing the reader more and more facettes of both the world itself and its inhabitants.
Also, the sex szenes. They were so great, though some of them were pretty detailed (maybe more NA than YA). BUT SO GOOD.
Before I read the book and knew nothing about it except for the synopsis, I was afraid this would all end in another love triangle. But it turned out such a different way from what I’ve expected and I am so unbelievably happy about it!

Actually, I have nothing bad to say about the book at all, except for the fact that it is over. I need book 3 as soon as possible, and I have no idea how to handle the long wait until next year. Please give me more of this.

  1. Hey Kat,
    ich liebe diese Reihe einfach!
    Wie schön, dass du Rezensionen auch auf englisch verfasst. Ich bin derzeit auch am überlegen, ob ich die englischen Bücher dementsprechend auch auf englisch rezensiere.

    A Court Of Mist And Fury hat mich total vernichtet 😀 ICH LIEBE ES. Es ist kaum zu glaube, wie viel Wendepunkte Sarah J. Maas eingebaut hat. Es passiert einfach SO VIEL. Das Buch hat mich total geflasht. Ich habe viel mehr den Eindruck, dass ACOTAR dagegen wie ein Prolog wird, um dieses Buch lesen zu können, haha.

    Alles Liebe,
    Sarah

      Ich auch! Ich fand den zweiten Teil mit Abstand am besten, was ich nach dem ersten gar nicht gedacht hätte. Aber ja, du hast Recht, ACOTAR war wie ein Prolog! Und dann kommt ACOMAF und man ist einfach total geflasht ♥ Es war einfach so, so, so gut 🙂

      Viele liebe Grüße
      Katja
