Rapid Fire Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Mist and Fury (Court of Thornes and Roses #2)
By Sarah J. Maas
ISBN: 9781619634466
Buy from Indigo

Description: 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.

The Good Stuff

  • Fast paced, exciting and unique
  • As mentioned on many reviews, I am not a big fan of Fae story-lines, but Maas's writing and characters are so bloody brilliant I will read anything she writes
  • Wow - fae sex sounds awesome, gotta find me someone like Rhys (love me a naughty boy with a good heart -- yeah Han Solo was my first love)
  • Character development is bang on, Maas writes characters that are constantly evoloving
  • And my favorite thing about her books are her female heroines are kick ass and don't want some namby pamby Prince to save them.  Feyre is someone I would be proud to have at my side or to to marry one of my boys. 
  • Rhys - what can I not say about how fantastic he is - he encourages and supports Feyre for who she is and who she will become - he just doeskin want to protect her and keep her in a gilded cage (just realized that maybe I should have put spoiler alert on this)
  • Incredible world building 
  • Loved the new characters added and really want to know more about them
  • Maas is a brilliant storyteller - when you read her you become lost in her world and when you stop reading , you feel lost and want to jump right back in 

The Not so Good Stuff

  • Umm please parents don't ask me about the content in this one, cause I have to be honest and your teen is going to give me the evil eye when I tell you and then you get all prudish and won't let them have it (also if you are 12-14 it might be a little much for you and then you are going to think the only good sex will come from a fae lord and than no man will ever come close) 
  • Listened to this one and had to turn it off when the kids were home cause of the naughty bits (However, well done and seriously hot)
  • Really want myself a fae lord now
  • Now this one is just my opinion and remember I am a 46 year old women - the chick reading the audio version  has a beautiful voice but it is a tad too angst y for me. 
  • When the hell is the next book coming out -- momma wants more and maybe more Throne of Glass series too - you are my new favorite author and can I adopt you 

Favorite Quotes\Passages

“He thinks he'll be remembered as the villain in the story. But I forgot to tell him that the villain is usually the person who locks up the maiden and throws away the key. He was the one who let me out.”

I felt Cassian’s spirit beside me in that moment, and could have sworn I heard him say, ‘If you don’t marry her, you stupid prick, I will.”

“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.
