Review | A Court of Mist and Fury | Sarah J Maas

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

✅ addictive

✅ 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.
