Synopsis from Amazon:

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.

A Court of Mist and Fury (ACOMAF) picks up three months after the end of ACOTAR and Feyre is still dealing with the trauma of everything that happened Under the Mountain and with Amarantha. While Feyre spends most nights fighting her nightmares and vomiting, Tamlin has become overprotective. He fears for Feyre’s safety and doesn’t want her to go out into town or hunting, but instead to stay in the castle with one of the High Priestesses, Ianthe.

While Feyre and Tamlin continue to butt heads over what Feyre can and can’t do, they’re also preparing for their wedding, despite their issues. Additionally, Feyre questions the bargain she made with Rhysand, the High Lord of the Night Court. She agreed to spend a week with him each month but in the three months since she’d been back at the Spring Court Rhysand never came for her and she’s not sure why.

Until one day when he shows up just when she needs him and changes Feyre’s world forever. Whisked away to the Night Court Feyre soon discovers there’s more to the dark High Lord than she ever imagined.

ACOMAF takes readers even deeper into the faerie world of Prythian, showing us new courts that are even bigger and more intriguing than what we saw in ACOTAR. Sarah J. Maas built a fantastic world that includes many new characters that I absolutely loved. This book was filled with romance, action, twists, and just overall bad ass scenes that I couldn’t put it down for one second. Maas touches on so many subjects from trauma to various kinds of abuse to genuine love and does so in such a way that it doesn’t feel preachy or fluffy, it just feels real.

A Court of Mist and Fury will take you on a roller coaster ride that will leave you breathless and aching for the next book. It’s no surprise that it’s a #1 New York Times Bestseller and I’m incredibly excited to see what Maas will do next.

Borrow or Buy: Ha! Why is this question? I want this book in every format. I need the hardcover for my shelf, e-book for travel, and paperback just because. Buy this book and then love this book. Forever.
