Updated: Jan 24, 2023



A Court of Mist and Fury is the second book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. The book follows the story of Feyre, a mortal woman who was saved from death by Tamlin, a High Lord of the faerie courts. In the first book, Feyre learns about the faerie world and falls in love with Tamlin, but in A Court of Mist and Fury, she discovers that the faerie world is far more complex and dangerous than she ever imagined.


The book starts off with Feyre still recovering from the events of the first book, both physically and emotionally. She is living in the Spring Court with Tamlin and is still coming to terms with everything she has been through. However, her world is turned upside down when she is summoned to the Night Court by Rhysand, a powerful High Lord who had played a small but important role in the first book. Rhysand reveals to Feyre that the faerie world is in danger and she must help him in order to save it.


One of the strengths of A Court of Mist and Fury is the character development of the main protagonist Feyre. In this novel, we see a more assertive, powerful and determined Feyre. As she learns more about the faerie world and the danger it is in, she becomes more determined to help and protect those she loves. Alongside Feyre, Rhysand’s also developed more than the first book, and his character arc is one of the most interesting elements of the novel. The chemistry between the two main characters is undeniable, Rhysand and Feyre have a very engaging dynamic throughout the story.


The plot of the book is also well-crafted and keeps the reader engaged throughout. The book is filled with action, suspense, and twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The world-building is also excellent, with a rich and detailed faerie world that is both beautiful and dangerous.


In conclusion, A Court of Mist and Fury is a worthy successor to the first book in the series. It is a well-written and engaging novel that will appeal to fans of fantasy, romance, and young adult literature. The characters are well-developed, the plot is action-packed and the world-building is rich and detailed. If you enjoyed the first book, then A Court of Mist and Fury is a must-read
