What book am I eagerly anticipating at this moment? Why it just so happens to be…
A Court of Mist and Fury
by Sarah J. Maas
Releases May 3rd, 2016 from Bloomsbury USA Children’s.
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.
With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
A Court of Thorns and Roses was my favorite book of 2015. A Beauty and the Beast meets Tam Lin retelling, it ripped me to pieces. I was a sobbing wreck during the crazy climax scene, holy ravioli. Sarah knows how to write some epic high fantasy and some incredibly hot romance. I am dying over here waiting to get my hands on ACOMAF. (Hmm, that doesn’t have the same ring to it as ACOTAR does.) BUT ANYWAY — this is a Hades and Persephone retelling and… that means that Rhysand is going to be Feyre’s love interest in this book, I am 100% sure. I think the only thing I am not looking forward to in ACOMAF is the almost guaranteed love triangle about to happen. I ship Feyre and Tamlin. Like, I loved Tamlin in ACOTAR, and “Beauty” got her “Beast”. (Because that’s how the fairy tale goes. It’s not a spoiler.) So I’m not happy at the thought of Feyre falling in love with someone else. She belongs with Tamlin. They love each other, done, end of story. But besides the oncoming love triangle, I absolutely cannot wait to jump back into this fantasy world with faeries and magic and awesome characters and even awesomer kisses.
