I've literally just finished reading A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas and I don't know what to say... I don't know what to feel.
I am overwhelmed by emotion. I'm happy, sad, thrilled, joyful, tearful excited, it seems every emotion under the sun has decided to accompany me.
Sarah J Maas is a wonderful writer. She has an incredible way of painting peoples feelings and thoughts in her words and the rawness of the senses oozing from the characters is divine.
The web of questions and lies that was spun throughout book 2 was intriguing and a joy to read. I never once predicted what might happen, which was a pleasant change and I was overjoyed at the growth of the characters throughout. I found myself rooting for particular characters and hoping upon hopes that the good guys where actually good ones, and bad guys where actually bad, and that I wasn't just falling into some webbed trap that Maas managed to spin me into! (Of course I did fall - very hard!)
Another thing I fell very hard for is Rhysand. Maas has a bloody good way with words and dang, Rhys seems like a god. His carved muscles, his God-like powers marred with his soft cat like purr of a voice and his deep, violet gaze. The picture painted is a rather pretty one I must say. Even in his darkest moments I failed to not love him and later on in the book he becomes more, incredibly appealing. - if it's possible. Of course you'll have to read it to find that one out ;)
Feyre has grown particularly interesting as the story leads on. Her power as a female have taken a gigantic turn since book one.
I love how much of a female warrior presence she has. As opposite as chalk and cheese, from the the pitiful damsel in distress portrayed in Book 1 (A Court Of Thorns And Roses)
Don't get me wrong the first book of this series was good, but perhaps not good enough to really pull you into this one. Which I wholeheartedly tell you, you must read. Even if you only slightly liked the first. Thank me later.
That's really all I can muster right now, I feel like I might be able to write a whole library about how much I liked this series (especially book two) so far. But for now I have delved much too far into the lives of the Fae that I want to become Fae and its affecting my real world life.
Now that, is the sign of a good book.
Till we speak again.
P.S. Book 3 Arrives tomorrow... Eeeee!!
P.P.S. This series has come in at number 2 on my top books/series list. That means it has managed to top The Hunger Games Trilog!!. That is such a great feat because I have read, and reread, those 3 beautiful books so many times that they have become part of me. It's impressive.
