Review: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Fayre is Immortal.

After rescuing her lover Tamlin from a wicked Faerie Queen, she returns to the Spring Court possessing the powers of the High Fae. But Fayre cannot forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people - nor the bargain that she made with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court.

As Feyre is drawn ever deeper into Rhysand's dark web of politics and passion, war is looming and an evil far greater than any queen threatens to destroy everything Feyre has fought for. She must confront her past, embrace her gifts and decide her fate.

She must surrender her heart to heal a world torn in two. 

Rating: 4/5

Not even four chapters in and there was a sex scene entirely too graphic to be in a novel that is primarily being marketed toward young teens, and this entirely irks me - kids of twelve and thirteen should not be reading smutty romance novels, even if they are "fantasy". Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but really, kids don't need to be reading that stuff. But ... on with the review!

As with the previous novel in this series, which I reviewed here, A Court of Mist and Fury follows Fayre as she becomes used to her new life as a High Fae.  

As life goes back to normal and the Fae are rebuilding their world after the wicked faerie queen was defeated and killed, Tamlin restricts her to his home - for her own safety, of course. But Fayre feels trapped. Can she really go through with the marriage knowing that she'd be a prisoner in her own home? Knowing that her voice wouldn't be heard, her requests to travel their lands unrestricted ignored? 

Rhysand is shocked at the change he see's in Fayre since he last saw her, she's a shadow of her former self. And despite the rumors to the contrary, he does have some sympathy for her situation - and isn't as hard hearted as he lets people believe. Is there anything that he can do to help her?

A war is looming over the Fae world from a king more powerful than any of them have seen in over five hundred years - one that threatens not only the faerie world, but also that of the humans on the other side of the wall. Someone needs to warn them. Someone needs to save them. Is Fayre up to the task? 

A Court of Mist and Fury is full of action and intrigue, I recommend it to readers over the age of fifteen, as it does contain scenes of a sexual nature.
