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 torn apart.

My thoughts…

I originally went into A Court of Mist and Fury very hesitantly due to the fact that I really liked Tamlin in the last book (A Court of Thorns and Roses). I was worried about his relationship with Feyre in this book. Thankfully, I was not disappointed and ended up enjoying this installment even more than the first one.

“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.”
― Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

I liked Tamlin. Everything he does, he does out of love and of fear of losing Feyre. And we all know that people blinded by love can often make mistakes, and mistakes he did make. I want to mention that there is no love triangle in this installment. There is a wonderful, all-consuming and healthy relationship that evolves naturally until it reaches paramount heights. What makes it so beautiful is the mutual respect, honesty and support they have for each other. Rhys embodies the highest standards for fictional males. His bad boy allure, arrogance, cunning mind, elegance and astounding power, makes him my new favorite male character. When Feyre is at Night Court she becomes so much stronger and feels like she has a purpose instead of being a silent consort. Rhys treats her like an equal and has trust in her even if she’s in a dangerous situation.

“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys."
Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”
― Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

The worldbuilding in ACOMAF was undeniably beautiful and was easily one of my favorite aspects of the novel, I could imagine myself at the Night Court. I also loved the new characters introduced. The Inner Circle was an absolute joy to read about and each of them are also so distinctive to one another.

Onto A Court of Wings and Ruin, I’m loving this series!

“She is my mate. And my spy,' I said too quietly. 'And she is the High Lady of the Night Court.'
'What?' Mor whsipered.
I caressed a mental finger down that bond now hidden deep, deep within us, and said, 'If they had removed her other glove, they would have seen a second tatoo on her right arm. The twin to the other. Inked last night, when we crept out, found a priestess, and I swore her in as my High Lady.' (...) 'Not consort, not wife. Feyre is High Lady of the Night Court.' My equal in every way; she would wear my crown, sit on a throne beside mine. Never sidelined, never designated to breeding and parties and child rearing. My queen.”
― Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

“And so Tamlin unwittingly led the High Lady of the Night Court into the heart of his territory.”
― Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury
