Genre: fantasy, "young-adult"
A Court of Mist and Fury is the darker, more mature older cousin to Sarah J Maas' A Court of Thorns and Roses — feeling more like a new book rather than a sequel.
What I like ✅ an intriguing plot
✅ Feyre's vulnerability and flaws feel real, and her independence grows
✅ good world-building — finally got to leave Boredom Court for NIGHT COURT
What I didn't like ✖ while the content is young adult in maturity, the explicit, over-the-top sex scenes are unquestionably adult content
✖ repetitive phrases and descriptions; If I have to read the phrase "vulgar gesture" one more time...
✖ chunks of exposition not-so-cleverly disguised as dialogue
✖ Tamlin's transformation into the bad guy was not fully believable
✖ while Rhys was wonderful to read, he did fall into the "every bad thing I did was because I was actually good" cliche; I liked the darkness in him
Rating 2.5/5 🌟 Verdict
Fans of the series will enjoy this
Discussion Who do you ship? I want Cassian and Nesta to be together. And give me Azriel and Elain.
