A Court of Mist and Fury | Pro Tip: Your Book Should Have a Plot. Just FYI.

Title: A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2)

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Genre: Young Adult, High Fantasy

Published: May 3, 2016 by Bloomsbury

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.
With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights. 

  • MORE FRIENDS YAY! There are not nearly enough friends in YA Fantasy, so I was extremely pleased to find a few new characters introduced.
  • We get to see looooots more of The Night Court in this book! From the wardrobe to the wings, it’s all “eeeeaaauuuuuugggjhhh so good.

  • I AM SO SORRY, I THOUGHT THIS WAS A RESPECTABLE SERIES. Basically, we entirely forget about the plot to swoon over a certain dark-haired Fae. I mean, I love romance. I really do. But you know what else I love? AN ACTUAL STORYLINE. Call me demanding, but I think that’s a fairly essential part of a book!!!
  • The romance wasn’t even that good. It’s not that I didn’t like the love interest, it’s just that I wasn’t particularly impressed. PROBABLY BECAUSE HE SQUASHED THE PLOT. So yeah, I won’t be swooning anytime soon.
  • Also, the book was super long. It could’ve been half that long. But noooo, we have to have 62829082 pages of two poor, wounded souls slooooooooowly nestling into each other’s arms. I’m sorry, don’t know if I mentioned this: THAT IS NOT A PLOT.
  • Also, there are basically 2 pages of Lucien in here. Why??? He’s the best character in the book!

I am so very dissapointed.
