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.

An Interesting Read!

This book was good. Not great but good. There were times in the story where I felt like it dragged on and I just wanted it to end. Over all the plot and character building was great which I think saved the book in the end.

Iv come to like Feyras character more in this book as she was quite annoying and unbarable in the first book. Her character definitely has more depth, growth and understanding then in the first book.

My favourite out of the trilogy

My absolute favourite book from the trilogy. The trilogy is my all time favourite too. Dreamy romance, great plot, sexy parts...ahh so good. I loved Jennifer Ikeda narrating too. I was sad she didn’t do the 3rd book.

Love the story and the telling of it. Can’t wait for the third book! Using slang from today gives more mystery to when the story takes place.

DEFINITELY YA not teen

I loved this book more than the first, it kept me on my toes more than I thought!
Would advise NOT listening to a few scenes out loud (save your embarrassment), but overall I loved the book and the narrator. Sad to see she doesn't narrate the next one but if the Audible gods could get her to do that one too... 😉

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 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!

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!

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.

I finished in 3 DAYS and now I'm depressed!

This series is SO good! I am not all that fond of how slow Jennifer Ikeda reads it so I have to speed it up. But Sarah J. Maas BLOWS my mind in this book. SO creative and romantic, great movement in the story, awesome action and she keeps you on your toes the entire time. She makes you love who you're supposed to when you're supposed to but can mix it up just as fast. I loved this book, I'm captivated with this story, and CANNOT WAIT for the next one (hoping it won't be forever until the next book is released)

Teen Novel?

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

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.

This is a New Adult novel not Teen 11-13

Where does A Court of Mist and Fury rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

1 out 10, 10 being high I give it an 8 for creativity and fun atmosphere. For narration I give it a 4. The voice is too adult for the character and the male voices are varied enough. Lucien and Rhysand sound an awful lot alike.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Court of Mist and Fury?

SPOILERS: When Feyre sets the water wolves and eagles on the Highburn marauders and goes after the Adder(? spelling)

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was fine to blah. Nothing spectacular, but not terrible either.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A spectacular fairy tale

Any additional comments?

If I recall correctly The Court of Rose and Thorns was originally rated a New Adult novel (18 years of age +) For some reason it is now rated Teen 11-13. I believe someone got the ratings mixed up a little or didn't read it very thoroughly. This is not comparable in anyway to Harry Potter and the like except for the fantasy elements. Teen 11-13 books should not include detailed oral sex (both male/female) or mutliple detailed orgasims (both male/female). Sarah J. Mass's Throne of Glass series is rated Teen and is much tamer. I certainly wouldn't want my 11 year old reading this material. As to the book itself, it's entertaining. I appreciate an author who's willing to change a story to her liking and not necessarily her fangirls/shippers tastes. I find some of her romance writing a bit clunky, but she makes up for it with her imaginative and enjoyable fantasy story.

Long winded

If you could sum up A Court of Mist and Fury in three words, what would they be?

This is a good book. Decent story, good characters. Fae and humans are involved which is always fun to read about! And of course the many love triangles make it exciting to root for your favorite characters.

What could Sarah J. Maas have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

This book seemed a bit long winded. The main character was in her head A LOT. Always brooding over her ex or her current situation, or how she was a stupid weak human. This book tried, I believe tried very hard to bring Fayre into a "female heroine" role. And just when you thought yeah the brooding is over and shes turning a new page, action is happening! NOPE! Surprise, she'd go right back into wallowing. Because of this, it is hard to listen to. Like I kept finding myself wanting to hit the "fast forward 30 sec" button just to get through the scene and onto the next good part!

What does Jennifer Ikeda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is amazing at narrating. Every voice is different, you can really tell whos speaking just by her amazing narration. And shes not to slow, or to fast. She did excellent with this story trying to bring some life into it!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Enjoyable for all who like to sit and wait"

Any additional comments?

This is still a good read/ listen to, just not as good as others.
