Review: A Court of Mist and Fury

August 24, 2017

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“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.”

 I read A Court of Thorn and Roses so long ago I barely remembered what happened at the middle of the book (because let's face it, the real story starts Under the Mountain) so I was a little reticent at the start of this one because when I finished said previous book I just thought it was alright, it didn't feel particularly compelling and the romantic interest, honestly, just wasn't for me. In fact I didn't even realize it was a Beauty and the Beast retelling until later because there is no beast in it.

 However I still decided to give A Court of Mist and Fury a try, I mean who knows? And I had also read some shining reviews in the meanwhile so why not? And let me tell you, I was completely, utterly blown away; putting things in perspective right now the first book almost feels like a prologue. I loved how the relationships were handled, Feyre's change of heart and the inclusion of abusive relationships and depression are a welcome adition in a genre that often neglects such topics.

 And then there's Rhysand, bad boy Rhys who under all the abuse he has endured still has a gentle heart. He's probably one of the best YA romantic interests I've had the pleasure to read about, he's caring and thoughtful and such a refreshing change from seemingly perfect Tamlin. His and Feyre's relationship is populated by shameless flirting, teasing and an the understanding between two people who have been through similar, if painful experiences. I loved the entire thing. So if you've liked the first book I cannot begin to emphasize how much you should read the next one.


 Leí A Court of Thorns and Roses hace tanto tiempo que ya casi no recordaba lo que ocurrió en la mitad del libro, así que me sentía un poquito reticente al principio del segundo ya que cuando terminé dicho primer libro pensé que estaba bien, pero no sentí que fuera particularmente bueno y el interés romantico en realidad no era para mi gusto. De hecho, ni siquiera me dí cuenta de que era un retelling de La Bella y La Bestia hasta mucho después, porque de verdad no hay ninguna bestia en él.

 De todas maneras decidí darle una oportunidad a A Court of Mist and Fury, porque quién sabe? Además había leído varias reseñas brillantes, así que por qué no? Y dejenme decirles que fué maravilloso; poniendo las cosas en perspectiva ahora, el primer libro casi parece un prólogo. Me encantó como fueron manejadas las relaciones, el cambio de corazón de Feyre y la inclusión de temas como relaciones abusivas y depresión que muchas veces son ignorados en el género.

 Y después está Rhysand, que siendo el chico malo de la historia y aún con todo el abuso que ha tenido que soportar tiene un corazon de oro. Él es probablemente uno de los mejores intereses románticos en YA de los que he tenido el placer de leer, es bueno y amable y un cambio tan refrescante comparado con Tamlin. Su relación con Feyre está plagada de coqueteo y bromas y el entendimiento que exíste entre dos personas que han pasado por las misma experiencias. Amé todo. Así que si han leído el primer libro y les gustó no puedo comenzar a enfatizar lo mucho que deberían leer el segundo.
