Synopsis: Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.
THIS WAS REALLY FREAKING GOOD. Sarah J. Maas took a massive leap from the first book and I am blown away. This is my favourite book of hers now.
This starts off right where A Court of Thorns and Roses ends. Feyre is stuck at the Spring Court trying to recover from what happened while preparing for her wedding to Tamlin. Tamlin won’t talk to Feyre about what happened, and he won’t let her leave the house. He turns into this colossal manipulative and controlling jerk. On the day of their wedding, Rhysand appears to take Feyre to the Night Court as part of their bargain… and that’s just the start of this beautiful story.
My biggest concern going into ACOMAF was the character developement. A lot of the characters did 180’s and were completely different, but it made sense (unlike with some of the characters from SJM’s Throne of Glass series).
Feyre has PTSD from the events that occurred in ACOTAR, and Tamlin and his court’s true colours show. And Rhysand, OH MY FREAKING GOSH. *fangirls* I love Rhysand and his group of friends. I was smiling and giggling a lot throughout this book.
A Court of Mist and Fury isn’t just some fantasy love story, it’s about self discovery and healing, and it is so beautiful and emotional. The ending just about killed me. I’m still in shock over some of the things that happened.
