O…kay I thoroughly enjoyed book one “A Court of Thorns and Roses” and book two, sadly I cannot tell the same. I felt the book was over dragged and over hyped. I think the series became an hit only because of book 1.
So many things went wrong with book “A Court of Mist and Fury”. Sarah J Mass had built her characters in a more appealing way in “A Court of Thorns and Roses”, but she completely ruined them in “A Court of Mist and Fury”. She started destroying with Tamlin, who till that point I considered as a good book boyfriend. Tamlin became an overbearing, over protective and what boiled my blood is he also became insensitive towards Feyre’s suffering. So imagine my conflict when I had to start hating the one character I loved most!
Sarah J Mass, I felt like you completely changed the characteristic of Tamlin and made him an ass prick only because you wanted us to lean towards Rhysand and start hating Tamlin. I did not like that not a bit!
Now, don’t get me wrong. i love Rhysand but a voice in my head keeps telling me I love Rhysand and Feyre’s pair only because Sarah made sure of it!. She made sure of the readers hating Tamlin and falling for Rhysand.
In the process of reading the book, somewhere in middle I could not stand Feyre too. That Feyre whom I considered a strong willed girl was dead! I mean imagine my horror when I thought she was a brave, strong willed girl was turned into a guilt eating, Zombie who is just perishing in front of Tamlin. She herself could have taken a stand when Tamlin became overbearing. She could have raised her voice and made him realize his wrong doings. Instead of that, she became a zombie. Come on Feyre! For god sake you are an immortal now. you could have done something! Another major issue with Feyre for me was, I hated her when she did comparisons between Rhysand and Tamlin. I hated it even more when she used to guilt for having feelings for Rhysand!
I have problem with this mate thing too.! I mean Feyre felt Tamlin not because she didn’t love him, she left him because she was suffocated of his overbearing and possessiveness (can someone ask Ana Steele also to follow Feyre’s footstep here?!) But after coming to know about Rhysand being her mate, she thinks her relationship with Tamlin was doomed from the start!
I loved Cassian, Mor, Amren and Azriel. I loved their banters. They helped Feyre in so many ways. Feyre started blooming again because of Rhys and his friends. She again started fighting for herself and her beloved ones.
I wish Sarah had edited the book more precisely. Most of the times I left the story was dragged unnecessarily. The cliffhanger Sarah J Mass leaves the readers in the end of book 2 will leave the readers to go mad. You just cannot restrain yourself from grabbing the book 3 .
I give this book a 3.25 stars.
“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.”
“To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”
“I fell in love with you, smartass, because you were one of us—because you weren’t afraid of me, and you decided to end your spectacular victory by throwing that piece of bone at Amarantha like a javelin. I felt Cassian’s spirit beside me in that moment, and could have sworn I heard him say, ‘If you don’t marry her, you stupid prick, I will.”
“If you were going to die, I was going to die with you. I couldn’t stop thinking it over and over as you screamed, as I tried to kill her: you were my mate, my mate, my mate.”
“She is my mate. And my spy,’ I said too quietly. ‘And she is the High Lady of the Night Court.’
“He locked you up because he knew—the bastard knew what a treasure you are. That you are worth more than land or gold or jewels. He knew, and wanted to keep you all to himself.”
