I just finished my new all time favorite book. I have no words… When people say that Sarah J. Maas is a great writer, they are NOT lying. And as soon as I finish this review, I’m picking up A Court of Wings and Ruin. This book had me in tears, it had me laughing and it definitely had me angry. By the way, I officially hate Tamlin. I loved him in the first book but I mean, there is no going back now. And Rhysand is the most perfect and amazing man EVER! He can do no wrong in my eyes.

A Court of Mist and Fury starts off where A Court of Thorns and Roses left off. Feyre is having a lot of nightmares and a hard time coping with what she did Under the Mountain. Tamlin is also having nightmares as well but they won’t talk to each other about it. They are due to be married soon but the moment she is walking up the aisle, Rhysand comes to fetch for her. She is still in the bargain with Rhysand and she goes to him for one week, every month. Rhysand brings her there so she can learn to read and work on shielding her mind. But Tamlin is too worried about Feyre’s safety to even let her roam the palace grounds without guards and decides to lock her up in the house. Feyre breaks down with rage and fury and is swept away by Mor (Rhysand’s cousin). She is brought to the Night Court and Rhysand tells her she can leave as soon as she says the word. She decides she wants to stay. Rhysand takes her to Velaris, his home that he has kept secret and protected for five thousand years. And Feyre is in love with the place. Feyre wanted to train to strengthen her new Fae powers but Tamlin never allowed her to but in Velaris she is trained by Rhysand and his inner circle. Rhysand warns that war is coming and Feyre could be the savior that they need.

All the characters in this book are incredible. Rhysand (swoon), Cassian, Azriel, Mor, Amren, Feyre, even Lucien is still on my good side. But not Tamlin. I don’t want to talk about Tamlin. We even get to see Feyre’s sisters some more and they are great as well. I love the inner circle and how close they are as friends. Velaris sounds so amazing, I wish it were a real place that I could go to right this instant. But back to Tamlin… I LOVED him in the first book and I knew from all the posts I’ve seen, that I would not like him after A Court of Mist and Fury. And I don’t like him anymore. I understand why people hate him. But Rhysand is just so incredible that the book makes him look like the opposite of Tamlin so maybe that’s why everyone hates him so much. Rhysand is literal perfection. How do you compete with that? Obviously this story was amazing, the world was great and all the action had me biting all my nails off. But I also loved seeing Feyre grow as a character. She has come such a long way and I’m so proud of her.

If you haven’t read A Court of Thorns and Roses, go pick it up right now so that you can read this one. I promise you won’t be disappointed. And if you are, then I’m sorry but I don’t know what else to tell you. Thank you to everyone who recommended this book to me. If it weren’t for bookstagram and booktube and bloggers, I probably would not have read this. So thank you for finding me my favorite book of all time. GO READ THIS BOOK!
