Publisher's Summary

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' masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

AMAZING! BUT, Not a teen friendly book!

I loved this book so much! It makes you laugh, cry, and everything in between. I’m still not sure whether to love or hate Sarah J. Maas for how fantastic of a writer she is that she can captivate readers this well. The characterization is immaculate, and the plot twists are ridiculous. I just want to throw this out there, as some other reviewers have: this should not be labelled as a teen book! There are many very explicit sex scenes. There needs to be a label for mature content.

Jennifer Ikeda continues killing it.

I love her narration and I’m devastated the narrator changes for the next book. The 2nd book was even better than the first.

One of my favorite books of all time!

A talented narrator, we'll paired with this series! Sarah J Mass is an adept world builder who creates dynamic characters that you can't help but love as you watch them grow and change. All of which is tied together with sure hand in plot development. The way she's crafted this series is inspiring and a breath of fresh air in a genre that is so often paint by numbers.

Don't do it!

I usually don't do reviews, but when I saw all the 4 to 5 stars, readers wrote the second book was way better then the first I tried it but it was hard to get through, the first one is better so that tells you.

Good!

Definitely a more interesting story than the cliche beauty and the beast of the first book, a little too much mushy-ness for my preference, but it was overall a pretty great listen!

Shippers will either Love it or Hate it

When we last left Feyre, she freed Tamlin, his court and the whole of Prythian. But at the cost of killing two innocent fae. So the last book ended with Feyre having to deal with the aftermath of her actions and of dying and being resurrected as a High Fae.

If you come into this book curious about how Feyre is coping. Or wanting to know what was up with Rhysand stumbling during his last interaction with Feyre. Or what is up with the bargain he made with Feyre. Or what exactly began Tamlin and Rhys' enmity. Or what are the other courts like. Or what the hell Feyre's last name is.

Then your curiousity will be satisfied.

However, if you come into this book with a high investment on who Feyre ends up with, all I can say is that you will either be very elated or crushingly disappointed.

Personally, I like the book and its continuity with the first book. I like how the author handles Feyre's character development for this book. I don't really care much about who Feyre ends up with as I like both the guys introduced in the first book.

But from a shipping perspective, I can pretty much see how a reader rooting for one guy would be enraged or elated at how the romance department goes.

So just be prepared

Finally, I just want to comment that this title should not be under the Teen category. If you're a parent who has any plans on buying this for under 17 children, you might have reservations because this book has even more graphic sex scenes than the first book.

Great story....but too much smut :/

Pros: Great storyline and interesting plot development from book one into book two. I felt the characters, both old and new, were fleshed out well. If you liked the first book in this series, you will love this developments in book two.

Cons: Way too many graphic sex scenes. I really could've done without those--the storyline itself was strong enough that these scenes and the use of foul language seemed to cheapen the depth of the book. The descriptions were waaaaay to long and slowed down the action of the story. I was really surprised that Sarah J. Mass would include such graphic details. Sadly, it's enough to keep me from recommending this series to others. If I wanted a "romance" novel, I would buy one.

Teen Novel?

This book should not be a teen novel. Explicit sex scenes all the way through.

Great book!! NO WAY is this a teen book

What did you love best about A Court of Mist and Fury?

Any additional comments?

Loved the book and can't wait for the 3rd book. However audible has this listed in the 11-13 "teens" category. NO WAY is this a teen book, graphic and steamy sex scenes throughout the book.

Is it hot in here?

I did enjoy the story ,characters and the voice actress even grew on me. I do believe this one should have an R, if not X rating. There are very detailed sex scenes. Offended ? No. Suprised? Yes. Personally, as a mom, I would not suggest this book to anyone under 18. I am hoping this is marketed as young adult, meaning 18 -25.
With that all being said, I am looking forward to the final book. Hurry up Sarah!

Not YA

For adults it's... okay? I don't hate it. The ideas are far from original, but the setting is interesting and I like some of the characters. The romance fell flat in this book. The whole thing comes across as a lecture in how to be a feminist boyfriend. My main issue with this series is that it is labeled as YA and suggested for 14 year olds... despite having very graphic and at times even disgusting/raunchy sexual content. As an adult, I enjoy some sensuality in my romance novels, but fondeling the heroine in a vouyeristic way is not something I want to see in a YA novel. This book should be moved under paranormal romance section for adults.

Better Than Book 1 of the Series

Here's the thing about this series: the plot is addictive but the writing kind of sucks. The story escalates as Feyre (that name still makes me cringe) finds out how to live in Fae and deals with all the consequences from the outcome of book one. New alliances are formed, old ones unravel, and girl gets laid A LOT. Seriously, don't read this if you are squeamish about intimacy scenes at all. The best parts of this book are the way the relationships play out and the freaking epic plot twists. The reason I gave it 3 stars is because Maas seems to be working with a very small word bank. As in book one, characters can only click their tongues or thin their lips to show displeasure. The sex scenes all use the same awkward vocabulary. The male characters, even the less toxic ones, are very egotistic, vain, and possessive. Except Lucien, who we see far too little of. This time around, there is *slightly* more diversity with a few brown characters in the background. Still not an ideal representation of a diverse world, but better than book 1's complete whitewash of a world. Am I going to read book 3? Yes, because as I said, the plot is utterly addictive, and by the end there are certain characters you will root hard for.

Better than Great... Outstanding!

Our story tranforms into something more than just your typical love story. Without any true spoilers: I felt a "Twilight" repeat being thrown at me in the beginning.

But then our fragile human evolves into a warrior in the Night Court. I love the characters in the night court. Just how we all imagine a house full family members interacting. Fights among each other but bands together when outsiders threaten them. The dialoge is witty and cute. The mystery of the Night Court is revealed and it's not what I thought. On a personal note I wanted more time in the Court of Nightmares. There is a good story waiting there.

We learn the flaws of all the characters. Even the perfect Spring Court has secrets. The change in our new leads was done perfectly. Not too fast or too slow. The love scenes were very unexpected. The author goes into more details with the sex scenes than any of her other books.

I giggled and cried and fell in love with the true hero in this story. I can't wait for Book 3. This sequel is better than the first book and is now one of my Top 5 of all times. However, I wouldn't suggest reading them out of order.

Absolutely profound and amazing

This book, in simple terms, is the best YA book I have read so far. Everything about it is a journey, and all of the character development was illustrated beautifully!

Jennifer Ikeda also did a wonderful job at narrating the story with her slightly rasping voice and pitch control!
