Book Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

17927395

Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

Sarah J. Maas is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series (Queen of Shadows, Book 4, will be out in September 2015), as well as the A Court of Thorns and Roses series (out 5/5/15).

Sarah lives in Bucks County, PA, and over the years, she has developed an unhealthy appreciation for Disney movies and bad pop music. She adores fairy tales and ballet, drinks too much tea, and watches an ungodly amount of TV. When she’s not busy writing, she can be found exploring the historic and beautiful Pennsylvania countryside with her husband and canine companion.

My Review:

Mind Blown.  That pretty much sums up my feelings on this book.  Every event in this book held my attention till the very end.raw.gif

Goodreads Synopsis:

She stole a life. Now she must pay with her heart.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

My Review:

I really loved this book.  There was a little teeny tiny moment that I didn’t like, but that was overshadowed by the ending.  The ending gave me the same feeling that the end of Matched by Ally Condie.  That feeling as warm and fuzzy in my heart, I consider this feeling to be a mixture of happiness and love.  I know that if the ending of a book gives me that feeling, then it was a great book for me.  I can’t wait to dive into A Court of Mist and Fury and dive into the Throne of Glass series too.

Buying Books

I really do love it when I am able to find the book that I am currently reading from the library at a store.  The reason that I am saying this is that I found A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas at Walmart this morning and I just laughed about.  I really did buy it so that way I could turn the library’s book back in to give other people a chance to read it.   Don’t get me wrong, I do love getting books from the library because it gives me a chance to find out if I would like the book or not.  It’s like renting a movie that you are not sure you are going to like or not because you don’t want to buy it, watch it, and then realize you don’t like it as well as realizing that you just wasted $20 on a DVD of a movie that you probably will never watch again.  I know that some people will never read the same book more than once, but I do sometimes.  I know that if I buy the books, I will always have them to read whenever I want to, but with the library, that same book might not always be there when you want to read it and you have to wait a few days or weeks just to read that book and the feeling of wanting to read it may pass and you read something else.
