A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas

Tell me what you see.

A world divided in two.

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 torn apart.

"#1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sarah J. Maas expands Feyre s world beyond even her wildest imagination in this seductive and stunning sequel to A Court of Thorns and Roses."

Paperback, 656 pages

5/5 stars

Though I've usually shied away from fantasy reads this series has grabbed my attention, especially when listed as a Beauty and the Beast retelling.

Book 2 in the A Court of Thorns and Roses Series, continued right where book 1 left off. I found this book to be more action packed as more characters are introduced, more relationships developed and more of the past was revealed. Basically a lot more going on, but not in an overpowering way. 

Going the audiobook route was a great decision for me, while coming in at 24 hours in length with Jennifer Ikeda doing another great job narrating, the time flew by. The story was intricate, captivating and for this newbie fantasy reader the fantastical parts not overwhelming.

The ending was surprising and I loved it, not at all what I expected.  It has me anxious for the next book, A Court of Wings & Ruin, and trying to decide which reading route to go.

This book was part of my 2021 Reading Off My Shelf Challenge (#34).
