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.

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.

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!

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.

I finished in 3 DAYS and now I'm depressed!

This series is SO good! I am not all that fond of how slow Jennifer Ikeda reads it so I have to speed it up. But Sarah J. Maas BLOWS my mind in this book. SO creative and romantic, great movement in the story, awesome action and she keeps you on your toes the entire time. She makes you love who you're supposed to when you're supposed to but can mix it up just as fast. I loved this book, I'm captivated with this story, and CANNOT WAIT for the next one (hoping it won't be forever until the next book is released)

Long winded

If you could sum up A Court of Mist and Fury in three words, what would they be?

This is a good book. Decent story, good characters. Fae and humans are involved which is always fun to read about! And of course the many love triangles make it exciting to root for your favorite characters.

What could Sarah J. Maas have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

This book seemed a bit long winded. The main character was in her head A LOT. Always brooding over her ex or her current situation, or how she was a stupid weak human. This book tried, I believe tried very hard to bring Fayre into a "female heroine" role. And just when you thought yeah the brooding is over and shes turning a new page, action is happening! NOPE! Surprise, she'd go right back into wallowing. Because of this, it is hard to listen to. Like I kept finding myself wanting to hit the "fast forward 30 sec" button just to get through the scene and onto the next good part!

What does Jennifer Ikeda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is amazing at narrating. Every voice is different, you can really tell whos speaking just by her amazing narration. And shes not to slow, or to fast. She did excellent with this story trying to bring some life into it!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Enjoyable for all who like to sit and wait"

Any additional comments?

This is still a good read/ listen to, just not as good as others.

great story, ok performance

Personal opinion of the story:
Story was typical of Sarah Maas, intriguing with layers that make the characters familiar and lovable. She builds the world and plot so well that I had to read it once, then listen again because it went by so fast (oh the feels!). the action scenes are pretty awesome.

Opinion of audiobook performance:
The narrative alone felt a bit lacking, as the characters sounded very similar to one another, and at times lacked the passion and nuances that I felt while reading the book.... she somehow was able to make a really good read boring at times.

Adult content warning:
I will say though -adult content warning- this book is has more mature language/slightly graphic material than Maas' previous books. The scenes are fairly tastefully done, but parents should be aware of these things before purchasing, because at times it can come off as a romance novel. However, due to the language and sex scenes, it felt a bit unbalanced, as if it was trying to be more mature, but at the same time hold onto the teen genre, which made the voice of characters sound confused in some areas (I.e., throne of glass has greater consistency in story content and character building).

Ultimately, I love the book and Maas and this is a keeper for the collection. I suggest reading it before listening to the audiobook, because a once over is not sufficient.

In Wow! Amazing amazing amazingly written !

First, narration was amazing. Jennifer Ikeda is never a disappointment . Great job. The story is wonderful . I was looking forward to reading this continuation and going Tamlin was long gone. I just loved where evening led to. I'm trying hard not to give away too much. Now I'm going to be lost until the next book comes out and reread this s several times more. I loved it!

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 ❤️

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.

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

A complete U turn from ACOTAR!

Though it is a complete change of story from Book 1 and I hated that the first time I read it, I enjoyed reading this again and listening to it. When read with fresh mind I enjoyed it. I love Rhys and his inner circle and Our precious Feyre.

Addictive

Picking up approximately 3 months after the conclusion of A Court of Thorns and Roses, Feyre returns to the Spring Court with Tamlin, and is now engaged to be married. However, Feyre is kept almost a prisoner. Lanthe, High Priestess of Prythian, moves into the house and things do not go well from there on in. Then Rhysand seems to come into Feyre's life again and everything explodes.

I could go on, but this is one trilogy where the listener needs no spoilers. It is a book which will keep you awake all night listening to. It is a book which has simply everything.

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.

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.

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.

Strong characters flawed world

Some parts of this book were flawless and it was immensely more interesting than the first book in the series. Maas writes strong and thought out characters, unfortunately her world building and at times plot just aren't at the same level.

Good but left dismayed

Okay I’ve debated on whether or not I should actually write this review but after stewing on it for well over a week I had to say it. While the story line is engaging and well written and if I hadn’t been so invested in the characters I would have probably loved it to the max but I couldn’t help but feel jaded with how the story progressed following the first book. Feyre’s descent into being essentially broken deeply is well done and it does really detail how it all happens, it isn’t rushed but I found her thought process to become repetitive awfully quick. I also disliked how the Tamlin line progressed, all the things she had done to save him, the trials, the undying love and then all of a sudden he’s too controlling, manipulative and so obsessed with keeping her safe that he starts to become a negative character and ends up pushing Feyre into cahoots with the High Lord of the Night Court?? I just I couldn’t get behind the shift in relationships, the whole thing really off put me that after all she’s gone through, all the emphasis on how much she loved him and all the relationship ended up going through she just essentially jumped ship as I viewed it when it got hard instead of communicating. I can appreciate the story for what it is but after gaining such a love for Feyre and Tamlin’s love story, to have it end like that and with Rhysland whom I struggled to like this just wasn’t doing it for me. So I guess if you’re similar to me who fell in love with the romance from the first book, reading the following may be a bit of struggle.

Fantasy YA...yes please

Book rant:
 
A Court of Mist & Fury -Sarah. J. Mass
 
I am so surprised that I genuinely enjoyed this. I read (audible) A Court of Thorns and Roses and thought it was mediocre. But after reading (audible) ACOMAF, I *finally* get the SJM hype. It wasn't the most amazing book ever, but I wasn't counting down the pages until it was over. I still couldn't stand the sex scenes but OMG... this was really good! The book has some flaws but I loved how it actually (finally!) felt like a fantasy book and not just a romance.
 
Happy reading x

Start listening at your own risk!

Sleepless nights and an edge of your seat story awaits. A new favourite author of mine.

This book greatly exceeds its prequel. Could not suggest it more.
