"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."
A Court of Mist and Fury is the second installment of Sarah J. Maas' YA fantasy series A Court of Thorns and Roses.
The main downside to this book - Tamlin and Feyre, the main upside to this book - Rhys.
I didn't really like having to read about Feyre and her deeply unhealthy relationship with Tamlin. After Feyre had some good character development post-Tamlin, she goes and acts insufferable again. She seems to find it very easy to lash out at people (clearly that is a family trait - I'm looking at you Nesta) without knowing their story and when Rhys opens up to her, she goes and throws it in his face and then proceeds to get pissy when he stops talking to her.
Rhys on the other hand is like a beacon of light compared to Tamlin. I know that a lot of people think he is too 'alpha male', but I rather enjoy his cocky personality.
On the bright side, the story got exponentially better in this book since there's barely any boring Tamlin in here. It is also because the story picks up in this one. Barely anything happened in the first one until the very end, but in this one we have some really good story progression (aside from the ending was a bit of a mess).
