Winner of the Young Adult Fantasy Award

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas is the second book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and the winner of the YA fantasy award. There are supposed to be 6 books in the series but only 3 have been released so far.

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2) by Sarah J. Maas

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.

Anyone reading this one?
I just started. So far I don't know whether I like it or not. I'm so tired that after half a page I fall asleep. o_o


Janina (sylarana) | 692 comments I just started. Same here. :) .. though in my case it's not related to the book, I'm just always tired.

Likewise janina. I'm just exhausted.


Janina (sylarana) | 692 comments I have to say at around 25% .. I'm really liking this book.

(view spoiler)

oh I have to read faster janina. i think I'm at 8%.


Janina (sylarana) | 692 comments Oh, I totally love this book. I think I'm going to have to take a break from it (currently at 79%) because I really don't want it to end and I know it ends with a cliffhanger and I have an awful notion of what that may entail and I really couldn't handle that. Plus, I need to read other books to finish this years' challenges and I know I won't be able to stop ... already contemplating rereading the first book and then this one again ...

I'm afraid this has completely thrown me into fangirling mode ... and I don't even like fae stories.

So I guess you like this book way better than the first one?!
I'm a bit sceptic so far because i know there's a love triangle coming up and i hate those so so much!


Janina (sylarana) | 692 comments I like it a lot more. It's definitely worth giving it a try imo.


Janina (sylarana) | 692 comments So, of course I couldn't stop myself.

I really do like this one .. the world-building is so much better than the first book and I very much enjoyed where the story was going this time. I don't think I'd even put it in the love-triangle category .. (view spoiler).

The one thing that bothers me about this series (and also Maas' other one) ist that it's somewhere along the borderline of YA fantasy (which it is not imo .. it's New Adult if anything, not teen .. I think that's a term, right?) and paranormal romance (of the kind that has a lot of story and just a few awfully written sex scenes). I think it would be better if the author left out those type of scenes as she doesn't seem to have a whole lot of talent writing them. The fantasy/YA-level romance is much more her thing imo and for me the books would just read better without them.

The ending was pretty much what I feared would happen, but it's ok. I'll just read on ...

Fragmentage | 8 comments I knew it!!!! I knew you'd love it Janina! And I have the same issue with it being in the YA/Teen-category, it is totally not appropriate for that audience (view spoiler). Personally, I didn't "suffer" from the sex scenes, have come across worse, but it's too much for a YA.

@savanes - definitely not a love triangle in my book (I hate those, too..)
