The seductive and stunning #1 New York Times bestselling sequel to Sarah J. Maas's spellbinding A Court of Thorns and Roses.
Feyre has undergone more trials than one human woman can carry in her heart. Though she's now been granted the powers and lifespan of the High Fae, she is haunted by her time Under the Mountain and the terrible deeds she performed to save the lives of Tamlin and his people.
As her marriage to Tamlin approaches, Feyre's hollowness and nightmares consume her. She finds herself split into two different people: one who upholds her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court, and one who lives out her life in the Spring Court with Tamlin. While Feyre navigates a dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms. She might just be the 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 in turmoil.
Bestselling author Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her dazzling, sexy, action-packed series to new heights.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Get ready to ship a hot new magical couple. The second book in Sarah J. Maas’ Court of Thorns and Roses series is a whirlwind of sizzling romance, dark magic, and jaw-dropping twists. After being drawn into the faeries’ magical world, the headstrong Feyre has been transformed from a human into an immortal High Fae. But she’s still trying to make sense of her place in this strange new land—and whom her heart belongs to. Maas makes Feyre’s journey absolutely spellbinding, whether she’s managing faerie feuds or navigating her relationships with her betrothed, Tamlin, and the enigmatic High Lord of the Night Court, Rhysand, an irresistible bad boy with a heart of gold. This sophisticated and sexy modern fairy tale is really about how people and relationships can grow and change. Richly textured and devilishly thrilling, A Court of Mist and Fury is the perfect escape.
Maas broadens the world she created in her bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses with a new enemy that threatens both the seven Fae Courts and the mortal world her heroine left behind. After having escaped the sadistic Amarantha, Feyre's return to the Spring Court isn't the happily-ever-after she imagined. Feyre no longer knows who she is or where she belongs, and she is grappling with her body's strange new powers after the seven High Lords resurrected her as a Fae. She and her lover, Tamlin, are wracked with nightmares from their time "Under the Mountain," and Tamlin's concern for Feyre's safety has become stifling. Worse, she's still beholden to the Night Court, and Rhysand, its High Lord, calls in their bargain at the most inconvenient time. Fans may be frustrated by Feyre's shifting romantic allegiances, but Maas lets the relationship dynamics change organically, and her talent for creating chemistry between her characters (including some fiery sexual encounters) is as strong as ever. Maas gives Feyre the space to regain her agency and prove herself the equal of any High Lord, resulting in an immersive, satisfying read. Ages 14 up.
Gave me another world to escape to
When life is so hard and painful. I turn to these characters
The second gets better
I thought I loved the first book but turns out the second one is even better. The characters are so well rounded and interesting. I enjoyed the banter and action scenes so much.
Now this is how you do a sequel! Better than anything I could have imagined.
