    Rating All the stars in the universe I needed not to be dead when I agreed You needed not to be alone I don t really know what to say in order to adequately express how stunning A Court of Mist and Fury is How exquisitely beautiful How slow burningly sorrowful How joyous at the same time I m at a lack of words for describing how it truly made me feel because this book resonates with my soul and my heart and my mind so wonderfully, it just filled me with awe from within, leaving me drowning in an eternal swirl of emotions, a ruin because of a mere novel But then she snapped your neck Tears rolled down his face And I felt you die, he whispered Tears were sliding down my own cheeks This book is a story about life and love and every gray shade in between A story about the bleak days and the lovely winds of change A story about hard fought happiness and soul wrenching sacrifices And a story about a girl who finds herself drifting away into the fields of nothingness only to discover the stars and moon and night sky pointing towards her glorious rebirth Feyre, oh dear Feyre I am so so proud of her and who she s become at the end of the novel She s so exhilarating and vibrant and incredibly strong But she was not like this in the beginning The events in the previous book shredded her apart from the inside out, living only a shell of the brave young woman we cheered for My heart ached for her But she finds herself again her true self, her wild heart, her luminous spark of daring, fierce, brilliant dreams And the heroine that emerges is coated with sheer determination, powerful bravery and astounding compassion I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal I was a survivor, and I was strong I would not be weak, or helpless again.I would not, could not be broken Tamed I want to assure everyone that not one character, NO ONE , acts OOC And besides Feyre, no one changes You know what I m talking about the alpha males vulturing around Feyre ACoTaR only showed us bits and pieces, but we mustn t jump to the wrong conclusions about certain people especially since the depth of ACoTaR felt at least to me similar to a Vegas wedding after meeting a guy in the hotel lobby, whereas ACoMaF was a reality check Harsh and cruel and unyielding This being said, I liked Tamlin He was true to himself Everything he does, he does out of love and of fear of losing Feyre And we all know that people blinded by love can often make mistakes and Tam did Many mistakes A lack of understanding intoxicated him and an imperative need for control severed his perception Paradoxically, we get to know him better even if he s not a present figure throughout the book And perhaps, now that we ve seen of his layers and facades perhaps we see him in a much different light He has issues and I truly believe Amarantha messed him up mentally nowhere near the trauma Feyre endured, but still a haunting scar imprinted on his demeanor Regardless, do not mistake all I ve said as excuses in his defense, because they are not They do not excuse his ultimate authority, his condescending attitude and his infuriatingly rash decisions for which he does need to suffer the consequences view spoiler I just cannot wait to see him get his ass handed to him by Feyre hide spoiler

    LET ME START MY REVIEW BY QUOTING MY PRE REVIEW, THE ONE THAT I WROTE BEFORE THIS BOOK CAME OUT Written in September 2015 Now that I ve read Queen of Shadows I don t know what to expect from this one I AM SCARED I m totally open to the whole Feyre Rhys thing, but I love Tamlin so much and I don t want him to be ruined by Sarah J Maas Can someone please tell her that she can make us love a character without ruining another character Because really, I ship Feyre and Tamlin, but I will not be mad if SJM handles Rhys s and Feyre s relationship with cleverness.PLEASE SJM, DON T RUIN TAMLIN.And of course, WHAT DID SJM DO RUIN TAMLIN I tried to write my review without major plot spoilers, but there will be some minor spoilers about how the characters were handled And warning my emotions over this book are a mess, you ll se how contrary they are Anyway let me begin OH, I was mad I was so angry when I started reading this book, because it is in the first chapter that you notice that Tamlin has changed and not for good Now he s an asshole He s insensitive and controlling, I couldn t stand him So congrats, SJM, you made me despise my now former favorite character in this series.I read a few reviews that said that Tamlin was always like that a possessive piece of shit , but NO HE WASN T He was caring and protective, not a control freak I feel that Tamlin changed because of everything that happened with Amarantha Everyone comments on how Feyre had PTSD and Tamlin didn t try to understand her, but I think Tamlin also had PTSD What he went through with Amarantha and with almost losing Feyre had a huge toll in him I can accept that he changed because of that, but no one acknowledges it, not the readers, not Feyre, not even SJM So that must mean that he just changed because he s an asshole I m not buying it.My problem is that SJM wanted to force Rhysand on us, like she wanted to force Rowan on us in her Throne of Glass series Excuse me, miss, but I don t need the love interest to be pushed on me I can decide by myself And the thing is I FELL IN LOVE WITH RHYS IN THIS BOOK And I think I would ve fallen for him even if Tamlin hadn t been the piece of shit he was.Before this book, I couldn t imagine any possible reason that would make Feyre leave Tamlin and fall for Rhys Not after everything she went through to save Tam, he was the love of her life and her feelings for him were genuine But then of course, the author put a lot of effort in ruining Tamlin, just so Feyre could fall out of love What SJM doesn t seem to understand is that falling out of love is normal It s perfectly fine You don t have to turn a character into a bad guy for that to happen Sarah turned Tam into a villain, and that was not necessary.I also hated the comparisons Feyre was always making between Rhys and Tam, so frustrating They were so obviously put there only to make sure that the reader understood that Tamlin was evil and Rhysand was good Ugh, Tamlin doesn t let me go anywhere But Rhys lets me do anything I want Ugh, I had my nightmares and Tamlin never woke up to confort me But Rhys is always there for me when that happens Ugh, Tamlin only cares about hierarchy But Rhys cares about family and about his people Ugh, Tamlin doesn t let me enter to his room But of course Rhys invites me to his I MEAN, SERIOUSLY We can notice that by ourselves, but Feyre kept comparing and comparing during the whole book.Have you read the Shatter Me series It was as if Feyre was Juliette, Tamlin was Adam and Rhysand was Warner the very same pattern First Tamlin was a cinnamon roll and suddenly he becomes a bad guy who only thinks about himself and is obsessed with Feyre And Rhys was the evil guy in the first book but then you discover that he had really good reasons to do everything he did, and he s a good guy incapable of commiting any evil Gosh, I really liked Tamlin, but now I simply can t stand him SJM succeeded And I had other issues with this book but that was my main one I m afraid this has become the modus operandi of SJM.Let me talk about those other issues starting with Rhys His character really intrigued me in the first installment of this series, he seemed evil, and I knew there was in him than what he let us see I knew he had his reasons to act the way he did, and of course I wanted to know why BUT THIS WAS JUST RIDICULOUS He s not just not evil, he is too good, bordering in perfection He s a saint, he s Saint Rhys There is too much goodness in him He s also the most powerful Fae ever born , see It s unnatural to be that perfect.Another issue was that Rhys seems to be the only High Lord that cares about peace and prosperity He s literally the only one trying to stop the King The other High Lords don t care about humans The other High Lords are stupid I feel like SJM did this just to add perfection to Rhysand s character Obviously he s the only considerate Fae that cares about the poor humans, the other High Lords are nothing compared to him Now let s go to the other side of my review this will be drastic Despite eveything, I LOVE RHYS SO MUCH UGH, SARAH You did it, you made me fall in love with him Maybe it s his good nature Maybe it s his perfection Maybe it s because he reminds me of Warner I don t care any I m just really rooting for him I don t know how Sarah does it Even with everything that bothers me about his character, I couldn t help falling for him.And it is rare when I change my ship in a series, but I did in this one because there s no way I d still ship Feyre and Tamlin after everything that happened in this book which is sad, because I really shipped them in the first book Now I can only say that I ship Feyre and Rhys SO MUCH Their relationship development was beautiful, everything they went through made their love real, made it stronger There is no love triangle here, there are no teams, there are simply Feyre and Rhys and I NEED them to be together There were only two things I didn t like about their relationship 1 view spoiler The whole I DREAMT ABOUT YOU BEFORE I MET YOU hide spoiler

    I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal I was a survivor, and I was strong Oh damn That was so unexpectedly good And to think I almost didn t take a chance on this after not loving the first bookSo, here it is I present to you 7 reasons why this book is a million times better than A Court of Thorns and Roses.1 Less romance.Oh, don t worry, there s romance There s lusty, slow build, flirtatious romance that somehow manages to be completely absent from the first book, even though romance was central to the plot But there s also so many other things here It s a fantasy with romantic elements, not the other way around.I always say I tend to become invested in love stories when they re subplots and the book itself is not actually about the love story I like it when the characters come together around and between all the rest of the action and drama That s what s happening here Because there is a whole shitstorm of other things going on which, by the way, has led to better world building, exciting action and reveals, and a fascinating overarching story.2 Feyre s growth and development.And, in fact, the growth and development of many characters Maas spends some quality time on character histories and backstory to strengthen our understanding of them I absolutely love it when characters show realistic growth over time and I think that s especially important with Feyre here.Feyre is not the character she was during A Court of Thorns and Roses How could she be after the events of that book Naturally, she has changed and found that her needs and aspirations have changed too Once upon a time, back when she was weak and starving, she longed for a strong protector like Tamlin Now she is strong, and she needs freedom to train her newfound strengths.3 I hate Tamlin.Honestly, if you happen to be a diehard Tamlin fan, I can see this book being a huge disappointment Luckily for me, I pretty much despised him He s never been anything but a pretty faced control freak I m glad Feyre has seen that and rebelled against it.I should warn you that Tamlin is absent for about 70 80% of this book And that was just fine by me 4 I love Rhysand.I foresee the oh no, it s a love triangle comments rolling in, but I really don t think it is I actually think this is a great book about growing up and discovering that you re a different person who longs for different things I don t get the sense that Maas is trying to play out the Tamlin Feyre Rhysand angst she is merely showing a young woman having a change of heart.AND can we just talk about how much better Rhysand is There s all the superficial stuff like he s exciting, flirty, dangerous and I love the story behind him He s fun than Tamlin and I like fun His banter is wonderful But I m also talking about a important level Rhysand is, despite being the bad boy , thoughtful and selfless He doesn t want to stifle Feyre s strength and lock her away for her own protection he wants her at his side, an equal, a partner in crime And I love that so much I like men who see value in strong women.5 Less sexual.I m sorry, you horny readers, but I just need to put this out there I really dislike Maas sex scenes Maybe Tamlin had something to do with it but, in general, I think they re overwritten and melodramatic I also think she does a lot of telling you that it s hot, instead of showing how it is, which is a common writing mistake, but is far worse when in a sex scene It s unconvincing And by overwritten , I mean that she describes kissing as branding , thrusts as breaking , and sex moans as prayers Literally none of those things are sexy She gets the flirtations and banter right that bit is hotter than the actual sex but I start to cringe when the clothes come off A brush of his tongue against the seam of my lips had me opening fully for him, and he swept in, claiming me, branding me. Also, is it really necessary for the male characters to growl in approval during sex Not just once and arguably one growl is one too many but several times I m supposed to be fanning myself with desire and all I can think about is Roy Orbison s Pretty Woman Mercy Rawr.6 New characters.A Court of Mist and Fury introduces many new characters, and the difference between this book and the first is that I found them all memorable, not just the main three characters Maas has definitely not neglected her characterization and character detailing here Everyone who comes in and out of the novel has an important purpose, is fleshed out with personality and history, and makes an impact.My favourite was Amren, but I also loved Cassian and Azriel Our brief introductions to the Bone Carver and the Weaver were highlights too.7 The ending.Take note this is how to ensure your reader needs to get their hands on the next book It s not a cliffhanger, but it is still EVIL In the best possible way I loved everything about it It s the kind of emotional high that leaves you somewhere between wide eyed horror and smiling gleefully How will I last a whole year Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store

    Fair notice Lot of fangirling feelings ahead.This was basically me during the whole book And now I finished and I m moping around, thinking over and over PERFECT BEAUTIFUL, HEARTBREAKING AND SO MUCH MORE This book makes me feel so many different things at once that I have to just stop and think until I can get my head straight.Because ACOMAF has it all Beautiful writing, twisty plot turns, SNARKY BANTER that made me laugh out loud, PURE FAE AWESOMENESS specially from the NIGHT COURT CREW, heart pounding suspense, CRAZY ACTION SCENES, WOMEN s EMPOWEREMENT, and a SEXY ROMANCE that me made blush and swoon SO HARD Because the story is not only about love, but also self discovery It s about Feyre finding who she is and what she wants We feel how broken she is, relentlessly blaming herself for the deaths of those ferries she killed and hunted by the horror she witnessed Under the Mountain The power did not belong to the High Lords Not any longer Ot belonged to me as I belinged only to me, as my furure was mine to decide, to forge Her character development is simply PHENOMENAL, because through her new adventures, she grew able to accept and embrace all that pain She became stronger and determined than ever, while she is still the same stubborn and brave character we love And the least I can say is GO FEYRE CURSEBREAKER DEFENDER OF THE RAINBOW AND view spoiler HIGH LADY OF THE NIGHT COURT hide spoiler

    I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal I was a survivor, and I was strong I would not be weak, or helpless again I would not, could not be broken Tamed A Court of Thorns and Roses was one of the first books I started reading that got me into Fantasy and reviewing books Way back when this series, the Throne of Glass series, and Sarah J Maas, herself, wasn t hyped up like there s no tomorrow It was the first book I ve read by Sarah J Maas and the reason I picked up the Throne of Glass series because I just needed SJM in my life.I was satisfied with the way things ended in ACOTAR so when I heard that some changes were going to be made in A Court of Mist and Fury, I was a little disappointed I was NOT a fan of the changes that were made in the Throne of Glass series which was why I haven t picked up Queen of Shadows yet even though the book has been sitting on my shelf since the day it s been released That s just my opinion I know some SJM fans are going to start pouncing because they sincerely believe that Sarah could absolutely do no wrong Don t get me wrong, I LOVE SARAH J MAAS She is an outstanding author I love her writing, her characters, and the world that she brings to life It was her books that changed my perspective on Young Adult Fantasy, but I honestly wouldn t say that I agree with every direction that SJM takes with her books.I suppose the questions to ask now are what was my stance at the end of ACOTAR and how did I perceive the changes that were made after reading ACOMAF Let me address the most important aspect of Sarah J Maas s books, this series, and probably the thing that majority of readers care about the most THE ROMANCE Since A Court of Thorns and Roses was a loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast, my ship of course was none other than Tamlin and Feyre I loved them as individuals and I loved them even as a couple AND I loved Rhysand Just not as a love interest I felt like Feyre wasn t worthy of the enigma that was Rhysand But knowing the trend that SJM follows in all of her books, I figured a change in love interests was inevitable After all, a book isn t written by Sarah J Maas if there isn t some character butchering and changes in love interests involved.But after reading A Court of Mist and Fury, I actually found myself accepting the transition in love interests much to my surprise As much as I wanted Tamlin and Feyre to stay together, I knew it wasn t going to happen These two people that survived weren t the same people that were Under the Mountain They re relationship became such a nightmare and so unhealthy It was two damaged lovers waiting for a disaster to happen.In the beginning of this series, I understood where Tamlin was coming from and why he was so protective of Feyre It was for Feyre s own good and nobody wants to lose the people they love and or care about But he took it way too far He became too overbearing to the point where he was holding Feyre back We all understood the trials and suffering that Feyre had to go through but I feel like people don t acknowledge what Tamlin had to go through as well while they were Under the Mountain It was nothing close to what Feyre had to go through but Tamlin had to watch the person he loved suffer and die He couldn t protect her the way he wanted and he didn t fight for her as he knew he very well could have He was helpless and a coward I think he realized this, which was why he tried to make up for it afterwards by protecting her now to the point where she s being suffocated It still doesn t excuse what Tamlin does in this book but he s just another damaged character like Feyre and Rhysand He s just hurting in different ways and expressing that pain in a way the he views would make up for his shortcomings in the first book Tamlin loves Feyre, that much is evident He just loves her too much, and that is the tragedy.As for Rhysand, all I can say is that I loved him in ACOTAR and I loved him even in A Court of Mist and Fury I loved that we finally get a good understanding of Rhys as a character, the secrets he s kept, and the sacrifices he s made for the good of his people and his court He was everything that Tamlin was not and twice the man and High Lord that Tamlin will ever be I m not completely sure if I m 100% on board with Feyre and Rhysand yet but I love their chemistry, friendship, and the way they just understand and respect one another I think I would ve been head over heels in love with Feyre and Rhys instantly as a couple if ACOTAR never happened and I didn t get so attached to Feyre and Tamlin But I no longer ship Tamlin Feyre and I m slowly, but surely, beginning to fall in love with Rhysand and Feyre little by little.With romance aside, everything about A Court of Mist and Fury turned out every bit as great as I anticipated a year ago Sarah J Maas did not disappoint I was preparing myself for the worst but instead I got the best Sarah really knows how to capture her audience with her writing, worldbuilding, and characters that she has created Of all the new things that were introduced in this book, the new characters of the Night Court were definitely my favorite I thought the Spring Court was great in ACOTAR with characters like Lucien and Alis but the Night Court was at a whole new level with Cassian, Azriel, Morrigan, and Amren BADASS is literally an understatement describing these new characters Besides Rhysand and Feyre, ACOMAF introduced so many new ships and I can t handle all the perfectness that everyone is I now ship Mor and Azriel with all of my being, just putting it out there XD And Cassian and Nesta And Lucian and Elain None for you Tamlin.Overall, I was glad I waited to read A Court of Mist and Fury because as a result, I was able to dive into the story with an open mind about the changes that were going to be made in terms of romance and the direction that Sarah J Maas was taking the series Love her or hate her, Sarah can write one hell of a story and is such an outstanding author Although there were some parts of the book that went by a little slow, I think A Court of Mist and Fury was even better than ACOTAR in ways than one Sometimes I find that sequels may suffer middle book syndrome but ACOMAF amplifies that momentum knowing that Sarah is preparing to hurtle anticipation and suffering our way for the conclusion of the A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy.
