A court of Mist and Fury

After all that happened Under the Mountain, Feyre is happy to be in the open air again. She now has the powers of the High Fae, all of them. She is still human in her heart and is having a hard time to forget what she had to do to have Tamlin and his people. 

It looked like Rhysand had forgotten about the bargain until he arrived after three months to collect her. Tamlin and Feyre try to stop it, but a bargain is a bargain. She navigates through a web of politics, passion, friends, and hatred. 

When they discover Feyre might be the key to it all, she has a big decision to make. Except it was not that hard. For this, she has to learn how to use her gifts, heal her broken soul and decided the future she wants. 

The characters

These were the characters like they are in the first book.
There are quite some new and changed characters in book 3: ‘A court of Mist and Fury’ of the series. 

Feyre: Feyre feels trapped in the Spring Court. She is so broken, she accepts everything that is happening. It is her duty to bear children and plan parties, even though she wants to help and fight. After running away to the Night Court, she grows better and better. She is allowed to help and hear about the court. A lot happens during the beginning of the war and she goes crazy when she discovers that Rhysand is her Mate. 

Rhysand: Rhys appears three months after what happened Under the Mountain. He notices that is it not going well with Feyre during the weeks she stays with him through their bargain. He decides to give her the chance to stay at the Night Court and work with him. Rhysand tries his best to stay on her good side and let her fall in love with him, as he can not bear to lose her. 

Morrigan: One of the inner circle form Rhysand. She did everything she could so she would not be sold off to the another High Fae. After she had been left for dead, Azriel brought her to Rhysand. Mor allied with the humans during the war. She is very quiet and there at the same time. 

Cassian: Cassian has been a friend of Rhysand since he was young. They always found a way to find each other and make it work. He trains Feyre and offers to train Nesta. He likes taunting Nesta as she is an equal match. Cassian promises to take care of Nesta and her family but fails. He feels awful about this. 

Azriel: As the bastard that he is, he was kept in a cell for the first eleven years of his life. His brothers were allowed to bully him. When he was eleven, he was dumped at a training camp where he met Cassian and Rhysand. He takes care for everyone that needs to be taken care of. 

Amren: Amren is second-in-command of the Night Court. She is an unknown creature that inhabits the body of a High Fae. She is very quiet about her past as she was a former inmate of The Prison. The only inmate that has escaped The Prison.

Jurian: Jurian has been resurrected from his eye and fingerbone. He becomes a vessel for the King of Hybern. Jurian is a mortal in the faerie lands. 

Tamlin: Tamlin decides to ignore a lot that happens and forces Feyre to stay in the manor and plan the wedding, even though he knows it is not going well with her. After Feyre leaves for the Night Court, Tamlin destroys part of the manor. Tamlin does everything to get Feyre back and sends Lucien to go and get her. He does not let anyone stand in the way between him and Feyre. 

My opinion

I really like A court of Mist and Fury. It is so complete with everything you need and want in a book. I think it is comparable with the Throne of Glass series. I am thanking my sister very much for giving me books from Sarah J. Maas. 

The story is complete with passion, action, mystery and whatever you wish. The writing really helps and makes it possible to see it in front of you. It is like a movie in my head and I am loving it!

There is a bit more love and passion in this book than in A Court of Thorns and Roses. But the scenes are so good, that it doesn’t bother me. 

If you start reading books from Sarah J. Maas, you will finish them. I know that now. I can’t wait for the new series coming next year!
