All I could say after I was done reading A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas was “Wow”. Wow, wow, wow. Pinch me.
I’ve never read anything like this, all my life of binging books. Or maybe I’ve been sleeping on fantasy fiction.
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 the key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul and decided how she wishes to shape her future—and the end of a world cleaved into two.
This book is a trilogy, and yes, book #1 wasn’t that interesting, but this, “A Court of Mist and Fury,”🤯 I’ve never read a series at a go, but I’m currently reading book #3. Book #1 and #2 don’t have an ending. In the last chapter of both books, there was a cliffhanger. And this makes anyone reading it curious to pick up the next book.
I must admit I fell in love with the antagonist, who later became the protagonist. I expected that A Court of Mist and Fury #2 would give a backup story of how Feyre and Tamlin would live their lives after surviving under the mountain. But oh no! The book shared a better story. The plot was solid. Feyre and Rhysand? I honestly didn’t see that coming.
How the A Court of Mist and Fury showed the connection between Feyre and Tamlin in the beginning as love and then later as lust, then how she fell in love with her enemy, Rhysand, was quite perplexing but smooth. The transition was just too slick. If I weren’t so into the book, I wouldn’t have noticed. It was mind-blowing.
I had done everything—everything for that love. I had ripped myself to shreds, I had killed
innocents and debased myself, and he had sat beside Amarantha on that throne. And he couldn’t do anything, hadn’t risked it—hadn’t attempted being caught until there was one night left, and all he’d wanted to do wasn’t free me, but fuck me, and—
I was not too fond of the fact that the Feyre kept comparing Rhysand with Tamlin. “Tamlin wouldn’t let me go out, but Rhysand allows me.” “Rhysand won’t lock me up, but Tamlin would.” And I’m like, of course, we can see that.

Rhysand is presently my best character in A Court of Mist and Fury. He screams humour, maleness, power, authority, sarcasm. Plus, his wingspan just made me drool (wink wink). Everything felt surreal while reading the book. I could see everything just as it was described.
Keir clasped his hands behind his back. “I assume you brought her to make a statement.” “You know everything I do is a statement.”
Now, that’s authority.
“The house is occupied by my top warriors.”
“Then un-occupy it,” Rhysand said. “And have them clean it before they do.
Authority again. 🤯
Also, after Feyre found her mate, she kept repeating mate. It got tiring. Every little thing, my mate this, my mate that. This man had a name before, woman. Would you just call him his name?
The High Lord of the…Court is your mate.”
I wasn’t entirely sure I was breathing.
“Interesting,” the Suriel said.
This is just a tip of how many times mate was mentioned in the A Court of Mist and Fury. Tiring.
I would have given it a 4 star because of the mate thing, but no, the good parts of this book outweighed it. A book about family, war, betrayal, family, and kinship is more than just a book.
“A court of mist and fury” by Sarah J. Maas is a must-read. I love books that, if mentioned, years after I’ve read them. I’d still remember the names of some of the characters and even the storyline. And this book is it.
I’ll recommend A court of mist and fury to anyone without thinking twice.
