I am a huge fan of Sarah J. Maas’s books. I’m really obsessed. Like, I want to be Sarah J. Maas. I adore her Throne of Glass series, and I have been dying to start her Court of Thorns and Roses series. I was at the bookstore the other day to get the first book, but Barnes and Noble didn’t have the first book. So, weak as I am, I bought A Court of Mist and Fury (ACOMAF), the second book instead. This, of course, drove my brother crazy because he doesn’t understand how I can read books out of order. But, I know all of the spoilers from Pinterest, so I was fine.
(Spoiler alert! If you haven’t read and you don’t like spoilers, stop now!)
I seriously loved this book. It’s set in a place called Prythian where there are 7 Fae courts ruled by High Lords. There are 3 celestial courts (Night, Day, and Dawn) and 4 seasonal courts (Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall). It’s about a girl, Feyre (Fay-ruh), who was betrothed to the High Lord of the Spring, Tamlin. However, Tamlin is overbearing and overprotective. A panic attack at a wedding and being locked in Tamlin’s house make Rhys, the High Lord of the Night Court, come and use the bargain between himself and Feyre to get her out of the Spring Court. This leads Feyre to the Night Court where she makes friends and starts to heal from things that happened in the first book.
Feyre and Rhys have a budding friendship/relationship that blossoms over the course of the book that I am obsessed with. I love the romantic relationships that Maas writes; they just warm my heart. The love and devotion Rhys has for Feyre makes me happy, and I love it. 😀
All in all, 10/10, will read again. (And will read the first book, too!)
