A Court Of Mist And Fury - Sarah J. Mass

Here is the 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.

My Thoughts:
**Any book review will most likely contain spoilers**

Big Spoilers, so don't continue if you don't want to know.

Wow... Just wow... I loved this second installment in the series. I have so many thoughts I do not even know where to start. A Court of Thorns and Roses was my favorite book of 2015; it is no surprise that this book so far is my favorite for 2016.

I really felt for Feyre, with all the stuff she went through under the mountain being "broken" as she calls it and now she suffers from PTSD because of all that. I know Tamlin was suffering from his own form of nightmares because of all that had happened but he was selfishly controlling in this book and I also really wanted Lucien to have more of a backbone in telling Tamlin just that. He was suffocating Feyre just further breaking her. I really loved their love story in the first book, but now this relationship turned into a poisonous one.
I really was not looking forward to the love triangle aspect; it is so often over used. Sarah J. Maas however, did it in a way that just felt different from other love triangles. I did not find myself pitting one against the other in a battle of who is she going to pick. The only thing I did want to see was around the time Feyre internally let Tamlin out of her heart because she finally realized it was not a healthy relationship, I wanted some form of closure between the two. At the end of the book, I do realize why Maas had not given that to us.

I love the dynamic between Rhysand and Feyre. I am so glad we finally find out what made Rhysand stumble and suddenly disappear at the end of the first book. That has been bugging me. He is witty, and I love the banter between the two. He encourages Feyre and they challenge each other and I love that he truly sees her as his equal.

I loved Mor from the first moment Feyre met her. I also love the other new characters we meet in the Night Court. I Especially loved the dynamic between Amren, Mor, Cassian, Azriel, Rhysand and even Feyre.

OMG That Plot Twist!!!
I had to set my book down for a day to gather my thoughts.
I was not prepared for that betrayal, but now thinking about it, it makes sense that Tamlin would do that. He was utterly desperate which makes him even more possessive in an evil way.

I knew it! I knew there was something fishy about Ianthe. I just could not put my finger on it but something did not feel right. In addition, Lucien had not seemed to like her either so that added to my suspicion about her.

I absolutely cannot wait for the next book! This series is now on my favorites list.
