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.

I will never look at fairies the same

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.

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!

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.

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)

Narrator is absolutely breathtaking

Narrator was fricking amazing. she gave each and every character a special voice and tone. I love her and wish I could find more books narrated by her. I love her voice.

great story, ok performance

Personal opinion of the story:
Story was typical of Sarah Maas, intriguing with layers that make the characters familiar and lovable. She builds the world and plot so well that I had to read it once, then listen again because it went by so fast (oh the feels!). the action scenes are pretty awesome.

Opinion of audiobook performance:
The narrative alone felt a bit lacking, as the characters sounded very similar to one another, and at times lacked the passion and nuances that I felt while reading the book.... she somehow was able to make a really good read boring at times.

Adult content warning:
I will say though -adult content warning- this book is has more mature language/slightly graphic material than Maas' previous books. The scenes are fairly tastefully done, but parents should be aware of these things before purchasing, because at times it can come off as a romance novel. However, due to the language and sex scenes, it felt a bit unbalanced, as if it was trying to be more mature, but at the same time hold onto the teen genre, which made the voice of characters sound confused in some areas (I.e., throne of glass has greater consistency in story content and character building).

Ultimately, I love the book and Maas and this is a keeper for the collection. I suggest reading it before listening to the audiobook, because a once over is not sufficient.

In Wow! Amazing amazing amazingly written !

First, narration was amazing. Jennifer Ikeda is never a disappointment . Great job. The story is wonderful . I was looking forward to reading this continuation and going Tamlin was long gone. I just loved where evening led to. I'm trying hard not to give away too much. Now I'm going to be lost until the next book comes out and reread this s several times more. I loved it!

Seductive Audiobook!

What made the experience of listening to A Court of Mist and Fury the most enjoyable?

The 2nd book in the series, A Court of Thorns and Roses, finds Feyre and Tamlin struggling with their arduous time under the mountain with horrible nightmares and intense guilt and insecurity. Also added to her woes is the impending deal she struck with Rhys for saving her from Amarantha. I loved Maas's characters with their scheming, darkness, horror, and magic; the worlds of Feyre, Tamlin & Rhys are lush, beautiful and alluring. I fell in love with Tamlin's world through Feyre's eyes and then the dark lords underworld of dreams and nightmares. And I rooted for Feyre as she learns to use the 7 High Lords powers from Rhy's commanders Cassian, Azriel, Amren and Morrigan. This book is so seductive in so many ways, I could not put it down and I hope I don't have to wait a whole year for the 3rd book!!! I listened to this audiobook, narrated by Jennifer Ikeda and I loved all 23 hours!!! Highly recommended!!!

What other book might you compare A Court of Mist and Fury to and why?

A Court of Thorns and Roses because A Court of Mist and Fury continues and deepens Feyre's story and the world of High Lords, faeries, fey, monsters,and nightmares!!! Could not stop listening!!!

What about Jennifer Ikeda’s performance did you like?

She was able to seamlessly thread between multiple characters & voices (Male & female). Her voices were exciting, seductive, and tantalizing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

A fantastic scheming ending to a book that will lead to the 3rd in the series!!!

Any additional comments?

Do I have to wait another year for the next book? I will only listen to the audiobook as I am addicted to Ikeda's narration!!!
