Honestly, this book is my all-time favorite and reviewing it without giving too much away is insanely difficult.
Potential spoilers ahead.
The first part of the book is a look into a seemingly normal relationship that turns violent and abusive as a result of PTSD. Feyre has nightmares and can barely keep her food down in the first months after all the bad things that happened in Prythian. And Tamlin is keen on keeping her safe and in his mind safe means locked up.
The book gives space for a lot of growth on Feyre’s side – she realizes the trap she is in, she finds a new family, she starts valuing herself more, she focuses on improving herself and only when she realizes that she is on the road to recovery does she open her eyes that the most valueable person in any universe is next to her, helping her get better and she does not realize that somehow she is also helping him get better.
A Court of Mist and Fury is the most important book in this series and if anything I want to motivate you to read it because it is full of so many captivating details that I cannot get enough of it. It is so rare for me to encounter such a splendidly written book. This book makes me want to go to Prythian even if it was just as a lesser Faerie, just so I could see Velaris and experience Starfall (heck, seeing Rhysand in the street wouldn’t be a bad perk either).
The publication date for A Court of Frost and Starlight is right around the corner. I am so excited!! How do you feel about A Court of Mist and Fury?
A quote: “He thinks he’ll be remembered as the villain in the story. But I forgot to tell him that the villain is usually the person who locks up the maiden and throws away the key. He was the one who let me out.”
My rating: 5/5 stars
