A Court of Mist and Fury Sarah J. Maas

Fayre is a survivor. From her childhood with family who didn’t understand her, her teenage years where she provided for that same useless family, to her time in Prythian and Under the Mountain. She survives. She’s basically a much more interesting Destiny’s Child.

Since the events of the first book, Fayre has become an immortal with a mortal heart. She’s never had to think about whether her actions are good or not, as they’ve always been inherently good. Now, she’s something the world hasn’t seen in a very long time, she’s Made, and the choices she’s made and the choices of those around her start to weigh down on her until she’s all but crumbling.

Cue the High Lord of the Night Court, sensing her unraveling through their bond, coming to reclaim the bargain made during the tasks in the first book. Rhysland is everything Tamlin is not, and when he steals Fayre away on her wedding day, she begins to realize he’s much more than what he’s let people see.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas is a monstrosity of a book, in pages, not plot, and I struggled getting through it and the Thanksgiving holiday in one week. And while I made an absolutely terrible pumpkin pie, I had a great time sinking my teeth into this story, where magic comes alive as you turn the pages. Character development, story building, adventures – a lot is packed into the binding. If you haven’t started this series yet, I highly recommend.

Goodreads rating: 4 of 5 starts
