I love how in ACOTAR you are given a pretty standard YA love story. A little rough around the edges at first, and then BAM! Near insta-love. All in all though ACOTAR stood out because of the gorgeous world, likable characters and the the surprising edge of your seat action towards the end.
Then this book comes in and turns the tables completely in the best way! The happily ever after is not what it seems, and rightly so given the traumatizing events that occur in the first book. Feyre is on the road to recovery from her PTSD and let's just say some know how to treat someone who is struggling better than others. I loved that you could relate and care about Feyre's mental health without it being an angsty slog fest. You could find hope for her and you could see her begin to develop many real friendships and see parts of Prythian that you don't get to see in ACOTAR. This is where the real love story begins and after reading this book you will want to re-read ACOTAR for all the hints and foreshadowing that Sarah put in that you didn't notice the first time through!

As promised, this book develops and expands the world of Feyre, Tamlin, Rhysand, and their friends. It explores the plot twists the first book hinted at and gives Feyre the chance to grow as a character, really taking control over her own life. If you're looking for romantic tension, Court of Mist and Fury has that in spades, with an OTP to root for. This is a favorite with fans of the series for that very reason. Warning: the ending is a major cliff-hanger - if you can't deal with those, have book 3 waiting!

As the second book in this wonderful series there are more than plenty of surprises and romantic twists that are sure to keep you in suspense the whole way. After surviving Amarantha's grip Feyre must face who she is and decide where her trust lies. She will uncover the lies that where feed to her and she will be faced with many challenges along the way.

The second book is where the reader actually gets to see the real sides of all the characters and the certain extent of the plot for the series. Sex scenes are a pretty explicit but who cares really? The characters actually start to grow into themselves and develop more so than the first book, namely Feyre.
P.S: be prepared to hate Tamlin

DNF'd at 14%

I was intending on actually reading this whole thing, if just to see how Sarah J Maas planned to attempt to justify her questionable and offensive decisions in the first book, but this piece of crap is crazy long. I hate most of the characters (namely: Feyre, Rhysand, and Tamlin), and the ones I don't hate I'm completely indifferently towards. The world building is okay at best, the magic system is fairly inconsistent and uninteresting, and I have much better things to do with my life than waste any more time on ACOTAR, because it isn't good and it isn't getting better. In fact, it's almost getting worse.

First let's get this out of the way: Maas can steam up a page like few YA writers out there. She doesn't pull any punches but it's realistic within the voice of the novel. It's not like you're reading a children's story and suddenly people are having sex on the table. So there's that. If you don't like people having sex on tables this book probably isn't for you. If you're a parent, be aware that this is truly a Young ADULT novel and may not be appropriate for all teens.

Aside from that, this is a terrific story. Yeah, there's bad stuff going on in the world, but here's a novel all about the growth of a woman, and if we're being technical, about her struggles with PTSD. As she learns to deal with her past, she realizes her future may be more open than it first appears. I appreciate that Maas makes real people who aren't all good or bad. Characters make bad decisions for what they see as good reasons. This book feels fresh and honest. I can't wait to see what happens next.

I fell in love with you, smartass, because you were one of us—because you weren’t afraid of me, and you decided to end your spectacular victory by throwing that piece of bone at Amarantha like a javelin. I felt Cassian’s spirit beside me in that moment, and could have sworn I heard him say, ‘If you don’t marry her, you stupid prick, I will.

Feyre survived Under the Mountain. But at a steep cost. Now she's trying to cope and learn about what happened to her. All while preparing for her upcoming marriage to Tamlin.

But she also hasn't forgotten the bargain she made with Rhysand. When he comes to collect on that bargain, Feyre starts to realize that a greater evil is looming on the horizon. However, even if she's the only one who can stop it, she can't do it if she can't learn to harness her gifts, find a way to heal her soul (and her heart) and decide which path she wants to take.
