Publisher's Summary

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' masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

Shippers will either Love it or Hate it

When we last left Feyre, she freed Tamlin, his court and the whole of Prythian. But at the cost of killing two innocent fae. So the last book ended with Feyre having to deal with the aftermath of her actions and of dying and being resurrected as a High Fae.

If you come into this book curious about how Feyre is coping. Or wanting to know what was up with Rhysand stumbling during his last interaction with Feyre. Or what is up with the bargain he made with Feyre. Or what exactly began Tamlin and Rhys' enmity. Or what are the other courts like. Or what the hell Feyre's last name is.

Then your curiousity will be satisfied.

However, if you come into this book with a high investment on who Feyre ends up with, all I can say is that you will either be very elated or crushingly disappointed.

Personally, I like the book and its continuity with the first book. I like how the author handles Feyre's character development for this book. I don't really care much about who Feyre ends up with as I like both the guys introduced in the first book.

But from a shipping perspective, I can pretty much see how a reader rooting for one guy would be enraged or elated at how the romance department goes.

So just be prepared

Finally, I just want to comment that this title should not be under the Teen category. If you're a parent who has any plans on buying this for under 17 children, you might have reservations because this book has even more graphic sex scenes than the first book.

Great story....but too much smut :/

Pros: Great storyline and interesting plot development from book one into book two. I felt the characters, both old and new, were fleshed out well. If you liked the first book in this series, you will love this developments in book two.

Cons: Way too many graphic sex scenes. I really could've done without those--the storyline itself was strong enough that these scenes and the use of foul language seemed to cheapen the depth of the book. The descriptions were waaaaay to long and slowed down the action of the story. I was really surprised that Sarah J. Mass would include such graphic details. Sadly, it's enough to keep me from recommending this series to others. If I wanted a "romance" novel, I would buy one.

Teen Novel?

This book should not be a teen novel. Explicit sex scenes all the way through.

Is it hot in here?

I did enjoy the story ,characters and the voice actress even grew on me. I do believe this one should have an R, if not X rating. There are very detailed sex scenes. Offended ? No. Suprised? Yes. Personally, as a mom, I would not suggest this book to anyone under 18. I am hoping this is marketed as young adult, meaning 18 -25.
With that all being said, I am looking forward to the final book. Hurry up Sarah!

Great book!! NO WAY is this a teen book

What did you love best about A Court of Mist and Fury?

Any additional comments?

Loved the book and can't wait for the 3rd book. However audible has this listed in the 11-13 "teens" category. NO WAY is this a teen book, graphic and steamy sex scenes throughout the book.

Not YA

For adults it's... okay? I don't hate it. The ideas are far from original, but the setting is interesting and I like some of the characters. The romance fell flat in this book. The whole thing comes across as a lecture in how to be a feminist boyfriend.

My main issue with this series is that it is labeled as YA and suggested for 14 year olds... despite having very graphic and at times even disgusting/raunchy sexual content.

As an adult, I enjoy some sensuality in my romance novels, but fondeling the heroine in a vouyeristic way is not something I want to see in a YA novel. This book should be moved under paranormal romance section for adults.

Better Than Book 1 of the Series

Here's the thing about this series: the plot is addictive but the writing kind of sucks. The story escalates as Feyre (that name still makes me cringe) finds out how to live in Fae and deals with all the consequences from the outcome of book one. New alliances are formed, old ones unravel, and girl gets laid A LOT. Seriously, don't read this if you are squeamish about intimacy scenes at all. The best parts of this book are the way the relationships play out and the freaking epic plot twists.
The reason I gave it 3 stars is because Maas seems to be working with a very small word bank. As in book one, characters can only click their tongues or thin their lips to show displeasure. The sex scenes all use the same awkward vocabulary. The male characters, even the less toxic ones, are very egotistic, vain, and possessive. Except Lucien, who we see far too little of. This time around, there is *slightly* more diversity with a few brown characters in the background. Still not an ideal representation of a diverse world, but better than book 1's complete whitewash of a world.
Am I going to read book 3? Yes, because as I said, the plot is utterly addictive, and by the end there are certain characters you will root hard for.

Better than Great... Outstanding!

Our story tranforms into something more than just your typical love story. Without any true spoilers: I felt a "Twilight" repeat being thrown at me in the beginning.

But then our fragile human evolves into a warrior in the Night Court. I love the characters in the night court. Just how we all imagine a house full family members interacting. Fights among each other but bands together when outsiders threaten them. The dialoge is witty and cute. The mystery of the Night Court is revealed and it's not what I thought. On a personal note I wanted more time in the Court of Nightmares. There is a good story waiting there.

We learn the flaws of all the characters. Even the perfect Spring Court has secrets. The change in our new leads was done perfectly. Not too fast or too slow. The love scenes were very unexpected. The author goes into more details with the sex scenes than any of her other books.

I giggled and cried and fell in love with the true hero in this story. I can't wait for Book 3. This sequel is better than the first book and is now one of my Top 5 of all times. However, I wouldn't suggest reading them out of order.

Absolutely profound and amazing

This book, in simple terms, is the best YA book I have read so far. Everything about it is a journey, and all of the character development was illustrated beautifully!

Jennifer Ikeda also did a wonderful job at narrating the story with her slightly rasping voice and pitch control!

So much better than the first!

I really enjoyed the first book in this series. It had sat on my kindle for such a long time and when I read it I was annoyed at myself for leaving it so long. A few months later I started this book and it took me the longest time to read it. I had a lot of blog tours which I had to prioritise. In the end, I listened to the second half of this on audible.

In the first book, I loved Tamlin. I'd seen a lot of people talk about Feyre and Rhys and I couldn't work out how she could go from Tamlin to Rhys. It just didn't seem imaginable. And then I read this book. After a few chapters, I HATED Tamlin and everything started to make sense. Tamlin pretty much ignores Feyre. He ignores how she's feeling and how she's coping after under the mountain. He can't see that she is struggling and worse still he doesn't ask or try. Tamlin does some truly unforgivable things in this book which I didn't see coming.

Rhys on the other hand, I wasn't sure about him in book 1. He seemed like the villain but there were hints maybe things were all that they seemed. In this book, I fell and I fell hard. Rhys is nothing like the person he seemed in the first book. When you get to see the real Rhys you see that he was putting on a front. Why you ask? To protect the ones he loves and what better reason is there than that?

Feyre changes so much over the course of this book. At the beginning, she is broken. So broken that it seems like there is no way back. But as she starts to heal she becomes someone new. She can't go back to the girl she was before under the mountain it's just not possible so she becomes someone new. I like this new Feyre. She is kick ass, she is stronger than ever before and she knows her own mind.

I also loved the introduction to the night court and all its members. I love each of them in their own way. They all have their own stories to tell and each captured a little piece of me.

The ending of this book broke my heart into so, so many pieces. I was so glad to have the next book because there was no way I could leave it like that.

A great spinoff from the first book!

Honestly as good as the first, loads of twists, I had an inkling that rhysand was gonna have a big part in this book. Don’t wanna give too much away, as you need to find out for yourself! Really Love the narrator she definitely made the story for me.

most excellent,must go! have to start book 3 NOW!

I didn't think I'd have to write a review as I urgently need to get on to Book 3 immediately. I've been having a hard time recently, I'm grieving for the loss of my best friend of 27yrs. It was her woodland burial in Belsay, Northumberland, UK., last friday and the only thing keeping me sane is being knee deep in Audible books whilst I work, garden, walk etc... I started Book 1, ACOTAR on Friday evening and its Thursday and I've just finished this second volume. Fiona was the person who introduced me to Audible last Nov. & now I cant live without it. I'm onto my 43rd book since then. I love this world and the characters that Sarah J Maas has created and I'm relieved there are more stories to come x

Amazing!

This book was a fantastic second to the series. I am just in awe of the whole thing, a few twists that I was not expecting too which is always nice when you can't predict what is going to happen next! I really really cannot wait for the next one! Rhysand and Ferya forever ❤️

Good

I really enjoyed the book, I read it on my kindle first then decided to read it again and bought the audio version. The story is really good, I like the characters and the fantasy world it is set in. The narrator on this one was pretty awful, she sounded like an American gangster a lot of the time, like a bad actor playing Al Capone, very irritating

Epic Dark and Beautiful

I did not think it would be possible to be better than the first book but this was and so much more.
Feyre is fast becoming one of my favourite female lead characters. Her journey of self discovery in this book is nothing short of amazing. Her human heart with new Fae strength is perfection and do you know who is perfection? That would be Rhysand High Lord of the Night Court.
Something didn’t click for me with Tamlin in the first book. His actions under the mountain and some before had little signs of weakness or selfishness. He wasn’t all bad and did some great things but all my niggling doubts were answered.
You NEED to check this out people! I can’t stress enough that this is not a love triangle and to see what I mean you will need to read or listen like I did. Jennifer Ikeda narrates this and does so wonderfully really bringing Ferye to life but also all the other characters.
5/5 does seem high enough a score for this epic saga.

Jarring narration, but a fantastic sequel.

I thought this was a much stronger book compared to A Court of Thorns and Fury. Emotionally powerful, but I thought some of the characterisation were inconsistent, especially Feyre, Lucien, Rhys and Tamlin.

I could not stand the narrator at first, her voice made Feyre sound petulant and whiny. Her voices for the characters also sounded very similar to one another. If I hadn't read this book before listening to the audiobook I would have been utterly confused.

Awe and shock.

I was a bit wary about reading this book because I loved the first one so much and didn't think it could be bested, but I couldn't have been more wrong. This book was so different to its predecessor but it was even more amazing. It was empowering and heartbreaking and addictive, so much more so than a Court of Thorns and Roses, which is saying a lot. And the narration just made it come alive for me. I can't wait for the next book to be released.

Wonderful.

Part two, A Court Of Mist and Fury is even better than Book One. Presumably, there will be a Book 3 I can't wait. If not, the ending of this book is disappointing.

PREFERRED AUDIOBOOK TO MY OWN IMAGINATION

I’m not sure what that says about my mind, but let it be known that Jennifer Ikeda is a phenomenal narrator. She is able to breathe life into each character and makes them far more interesting. She doesn’t overact or have any annoying tics. Highly recommend!!

Wow great book better than book 1

This book was well written, well narrated and though I enjoyed the first book enough to want to continue to the second. This book was much more than I ever expected. Book 3 will be commencing in a minute.
