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's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
     Now for those of you who have not read A Court of Thorns and Roses, (which is the first book in the series) I have a review which can be found right here and I recommend that you read that first before you decide to read the whole series.
     While many say that they enjoyed this book more than ACOTAR, I would have to disagree. This book is phenomenal in every sense of the word, but personally I would have liked things to turn out differently. The story arced beautifully from beginning to end filled with passion, romance and drama with a mix of contemporary themes spilled in from time to time. Sarah J. Maas did an incredible job of mixing fantasy and contemporary themes which is a rarity.
     Overall, I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. I do love this book, but I wish things would have played out differently.

     As for A Court of Mist and Fury I have to say I was not a huge fan for personal reasons. The story itself is fantastic and I could not put it down, but as you guys know I love Tamlin. In ACOTAR he was my everything but, I was not a fan of how he was acting in this book. This book does deal with some heavy topics though they may not seem so forward. A fair warning because this book may trigger some people.
     In the start we see that Tamlin is being very abusive towards Feyre, but not in a physical sense. He is very protective over her, but in doing that he gives her no freedom. Feyre is starting to feel trapped in her own home and suffocated to the point where she is hurling night after night. This eventually led to Feyre being depressed. She stopped eating, talking to people and eventually stopped trying. But, like in most abusive relationships in real life, she blames it on other things and continues to power through.
     But then again I was somewhat displeased with her behavior because she was being showered with gifts, and was treated like royalty and got to make love in meadows and shit so part of me was like, "bitch stop complaining." Then I realized the emotional tole it was taking on her and I saw the abusive relationship that she was in. I knew that she was not happy and why she was feeling the way she was. She was being showered with gifts and being treated like a princess when she is truly a warrior. She was forced to stay in the dark, not knowing what was going on around her and Feyre is not that type of girl. 
     Personally, I would love to have a man protect me and sit in a huge house all day with my fancy new things but, that is my introverted side talking. I understand why Feyre was feeling that way, it's just that I love Tamlin so much, I did not want things to go this way.
     Now I do love Rhysand's and Feyre's relationship because it is much more playful and natural. They fell in love the way real people do, by getting to know each other and becoming friends instead of capturing your lover. But capturing your lover and eventually falling in love with them is how fantasies usually work out which is why I expected everything to work out with Tamlin. Rhysand also pushed Feyre to do better and to become a stronger individual. He let her do what she wanted even if she disagreed with him.
     The end scene where Feyre goes back to Tamlin and acts like everything is normal broke me yet gave me life. It hurts to think that Tamlin is going to put his trust in Feyre again, but yet it is exciting and thrilling to see how this unfolds in the next book. The part when Rhysand was like "nah we still got the bond. I was just playin with y'all," (direct quote! i swear!) I literally dropped my book and had to stop reading for a second.
     Ugh I love this book! I am just conflicted! I do not know how to think or feel! What are your thoughts on ACOMAF and ACOTAR? Let me know what you think!
Thanks Hons,

  1. I didn't really like Tamlin in ACOTAR and absolutely hated him in ACOMAF. I get why you thought she would stay with Tamlin,as the first book is a Beauty and the Beast retelling. I really love Rhysand and can't wait to read the next book!

  2. I am in love with this series! *drops the mike and walks away*
