Four Stars for the Court of Mists and Fury
Eventually, I got into the story and it was surprisingly good. Though the first few chapters put me off and I think they could have been improved on. Having said that, the rest of the novel was exceptional for a fantasy novel. It was the initial graphic sex sequence that put me off more than anything and fortunately, there was only one more.
The characters of Rhys and Feyre are fully realized and totally believable. They are exceptional characters and I fell in love with both of them. Though I’m not generally a fan of fantasy, I was able to suspend my disbelief and I cheered for both of them.
Feyre is a woman who graves independence over love and protection. She is her own woman and consequences be damned. I love that about her! Rhys is a man for all seasons. His evolving love for Feyre is clear and concise, and he is ready to sacrifice himself to not only save her, but to save his people. He wants to protect her, but he also recognizes she cannot be owned. She is his equal partner in everyway.
The writing is terrific, filled with emotion and gut wrenching moments. The story moved forward in a logical progression with twists and turns that kept my interest. There were times when some of it fell a bit short, logically, but all in all it was a great read. The ending is a cliff hanger with a promise for more danger and excitement in the next book. I anxiously await her next installment in the series.

Interesting, although not really my cup of tea. I will get a sample for my kindle though to see if I will like it. Karen 🙂

Hi Karen, it’s very good, except for two graphic sex scenes, but don’t let that put you off. The rest is excellent!
I am glad to hear you’re enjoying this series so far! I started reading Throne of Glass a few years ago, but it became a DNF for me, so I am not sure if I would enjoy this series.
It does sound like a good one with the interesting and realistic characters! Great review!
Hi Lola, I DNF Throne of Glass either. Sara J Maas’ other series of Courts is pretty well written and quite enjoyable. She’s obviously improved…:o)
