SUMMARY


Alright, buckle up ladies and gentleman because we have a lot to weather here, no really we are about to go through all four season of the high courts.

Ferye is back in the spring court pretending that everything is fine and happy just as it had been before Amarantha, she is eating, laughing and even painting again, however she is making the spring court a living nightmare. Ianthe tries to pull one over on Feyre telling her and Lucien how she thought they wanted Nesta and Elain to be fey like them, Feyre bits her tongue as does Lucien but she harbors her hate deep down waiting for the perfect moment to strike. While in the spring court the king of Hybern sends his niece(Brannagh) and nephew(Dagdan) who are twins, along with Jurian, to keep Tamlin company while also trying to bring down the wall. Ferye has been causing major problems for Tamlin and Ianthe, she makes Tamlin question Lucien and Feyre’s relationship, all his guards turn against him along with his people. One the last visit to the wall with Lucien, Jurian, Brannagh, and Dagdan, Feyre has decided to return home now that Tamlin’s court is in complete shambles and is ready to fall at any given moment, but along the way she finds Lucien, who then decides to come with Feyre to find Elain.

Feyre is poisoned by faebane so she cannot winnow like she had planned to do instead Lucien winnows them as far as he can but they must now trek through the Autumn Court, Home to Lucien’s family who would much rather see him dead than in their court. After a few days of traveling they are intercepted by Lucien’s brothers, one of whom is Eris(Oh yes the evil man himself, get ready it’s about to get good!) They fight against the brothers and are able to get away from them and they chose to settle in a cave on the mountains that hold the border of the Winter Court, here Feyre tells Lucien about her sister Elain. The next day they enter the Winter Court but are again found by Lucien’s brothers. However Cassian and Azriel arrive and take them to the night court.

Once Rhysand returns to Velaris, after being on the human side of the wall gathering information, him and Feyre reunite with each other and he agrees to take in Lucien but only after all three males threaten his life if he makes any mistakes. Feyre then goes to the house of wind to visit her sisters accompanied by Lucien and Cassian, she find Nesta in the library and discovers something strange and ancient rest inside her sister, she also finds out her and Cassian have been doing nothing but fighting daily. She then visits Elain’s room to find her heartbroken and wanting to return to her human love Graysen as they were to be married in a week.

The Inner Circle decides to host a meeting with all the High Lords of all the courts(yes this includes Tamlin and the Autumn court) to seek help and to band together to fight in this war. They also decided to seek help of a mortal queen, one the other sisters had cursed and sold to a man who adores beautiful women, but she is hidden somewhere on the human side of the wall and after a heated debate about who would go Lucien offers to go on the journey to keep his mind off of Elain, who still rejects his love. Amren is still trying to translate the Book of Breathings, and later begins training Nesta to use the magic she had stolen from the cauldron. While Feyre trains with Cassian to help improve her fighting and Azriel to help show her how to fly.

The meeting then takes place in the Dawn Court as Thesan agreed to. Thesan high lord of Dawn is accompanied by his captain of guard and lover. Helion high lord of Day with a few of his guards, followed by Kallias high lord of Winter and his mate Viviane who is Mor’s best friend. Next to appear is Tarquin high lord of summer with Varian and Cresseida, lastly in comes Beron high lord of Autumn with his wife and sons and right before they call the meeting to start Tamlin comes in by himself. Maybe they can stay civil long enough to prepare for the war that is to come and not kill each other.

Review


My first thoughts reading this book were how and the heck am I going to be able to get through so many pages of Feyre being with Tamlin! I was so hyped for this book I forgot I would have to suffer through that horrible event, but it wasn’t very horrible at all to be honest. I loved everything Feyre was doing to Ianthe and the evil Hybern twins, I was begging her to let Lucian slap Ianthe for what she did to the sisters talking about ” I thought you wanted to make them Fae,” she knows that is total bull. I must say though I think what Feyre did to Tamlin is a little bit wrong okay. I said it. I did, kill me know, but I mean he did it out of love. He feels the love for her that she feels for Rhys now you tell me Feyre would not go through what Tamlin went through to get Rhys back because I think she would. Maybe not as far as using her sisters but I mean everything else he did yes. He thought what he was doing was right and I get that it wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies but he was trying. After a girl you love dies then comes back to life then wants to go back out into danger and is also forced to go see a Evil Night court guy (because that is how the rest of the courts see Rhys) I think I can see where I would try and keep her safe and protected.

I had such a hard time putting this book down throughout the middle of the book. I just wanted to make it to the ending I had so many questions that needed to be answered. There was so much character growth in this book that I just fell in love with everyone all over again. You get to see a new side of the people you thought you knew, secrets are exposed and there is such so much GOD I’m getting excited just thinking about it. The sisters are my favorite part I must admit, at first Nesta I hated she was so ungrateful mistreating my poor Cassian I wanted to smack her around, and poor Elain I just wanted to hug her and tell her everything would be okay, and the one person who she seems to connect with I was shocked at how different someone can act when around another person, Elain literally brings the good out in everyone.

Now this is where it gets ugly because the ending was a let down for me. All my questions I still have no answers to. Like everything this book had built up every single detail that I was so hyped to find out, after reading 707 FREAKING PAGES!! I still got no answers. I was so mad when I finished this book I wanted to scream. The Golden queen, what happens to her? Lucian and Elain? The Humans? The Fae? Tamlin? Just everything about this ending sucked for me! Then at the end we get a spin off book which people are saying will be from the point of view of one of the characters now but we have no for sure yet. So all these things you have rattling around in your head you might never get an answer. I feel like the ending was just not a good one, the book built up so much hype throughout it just to sizzle out in the end.

Another thing Rhys being all Night court primal male turns into Feyre’s lap dog. Like the dark sweet Rhys we fell in love with is gone and it’s just Rhys taking orders from Feyre and love Feyre, I was just so over Rhys and Feyre halfway through the book, It broke my heart a little to say that, The Rhys I fell in love with in the second book the strong alpha male who was like the back bone of everyone and was always protecting his family with his swagger of cockiness is just gone, so get ready for that.

I loved the series, I do I loved that start of this book but the ending it was a big let down. I think that the second book is still the best book out of all three, but this book is worth a read just don’t get all fully hyped about it unless you just like it for the story and the love then yeah you won’t care about the ending but I am invested in this book I sunk the time into loving this book. I grown attached to these characters that I need to know what happens to them I don’t want another cliff hanger and wait another year for a book that might or might not answer the questions that you will be asking yourself if your are also invested into it.

A Court of Love and Hate

A Court of Thorns and Roses
By: Sarah J. Maas
 

“A court of Thorns and Roses ” is about a young girl named Feyre who is trying to keep her family alive in the middle of winter. It was fate that forced her meet Tamlin after she killed one of his people. For Tamlin is no mere mortal, he is known as a Fae. The Fae are magical creatures who are very powerful and terrifying. She must now come to live among his people, but the Fae are not the only danger she must look out for. Feyre learns of the curse that was put upon the people of the Fae, she will do everything she can to save Tamlin. Even if she must battle the evil queen herself. Feyre must now do a series of deadly trials that will not only kill her, but her soul as well. There is someone who she meets that might just be able to help her stay alive long enough to see tomorrow.

 I made my description of this book very vague because I want you to feel the same shock and heartache that I did. What is the point of reading a book if someone ruins it for you by telling you everything ;)!
 This book has made me both love it and hate it at the same time. In the beginning of the book I had to force myself through it. I thought it was boring, just another same old story i’ve heard over and over again. It was to the point I quit reading it actually. But once I picked it up again and made it to the middle of the book my world was turned upside down. It is filled with deadly challenges that have you biting all your nails. The story draws you in by knowing someone you love could die at any moment. You start to realize that you love all the characters and you don’t want any of them to die, except for the bad guys of course! Then once you make it to the final stomach sicking end that no one could predict. You realize that you were wrong and maybe there is good in the darkest soul and not all is as it seems. 
 I loved the journey this book took me on. I have read it over 5 times now and every time I do it feels like i’m reading it for the first time. I recommend this book if you are ready for this book to ruin every other book for you forever. Sarah J.Maas is a genius yet again.

A Court of Heartache and Waiting!

A Court of Mist and Fury

By:Sarah J. Maas

Bear with me this is going to be a long one a lot of things to cover here!!

“A Court of Mist and Fury” is a sequel to “A Court of Thorns and Roses”. Things after the wrath and destruction that Amarantha brought upon the Courts and its people everything seems to be calming down. Except for Feyre who is still battling the demons within her self. Not to mention an over protective Tamlin. It looks as if things are about to go up in flames when out of nowhere Rhysand of the Night Court has shown up to make good on the bargain that was made. He came to claim her on what you would think to be the most important day of her life or the biggest mistake of her life. It turns out living with Rhys for a week was not as bad as one thought it would be. Once back in the loving arms of Tamlin things go horribly wrong and once again Feyre finds herself on the brink of self destructing. That is until Mor, Rhysand’s cousin, comes and saves her from her prison and brings her back to the Night Court. This is where Feyre finds that she has nowhere else to go until Rhys offers her a chance to join him and his inner circle. Once in the city of Velaris she comes to meet Rhys’ inner circle and tries to own her magic and fighting skills. She soon learns that maybe she too can learn to heal from the scares that have been marked on her soul, just as Rhys is trying too. There is trouble coming though bigger than the likes of two Amaranthas. The King of Hybern has his sights set on the cauldron and will stop at nothing to get it. The inner circle must now race against the King to find the cauldron and destroy it. They must deceive the High lord of the Summer Court, and try to bargain with the queens of the Mortal realm to get a book which can help them destroy the cauldron. Not to mention a bond of two lovers is struck and a Mating Bond is made. In the end, sacrifices are made and lives are hanging in the balancing. Someone gets felt in the hands of the enemy and all the other can do is watch and wait to see what happens next. 


Okay, so this book has got to be one of the best books I have ever read!! I have felt so much for the characters in this book. I feel like I connected with the characters. This book is so much more than just a book. It is filled with emotional struggle and heartache. I could not stop reading once I started. I found a few boring parts of the story to be in the beginning with Tamlin and while Feyre is growing accustomed to staying in Velaris and the visit to the mortal realm. Other then that it was a non stop drama fest that I could not get enough of it.

In this book I found it to be so much more than I expected Feyre had a huge breakthrough in the story. We got to hear more about Rhysand and get to know all about his past life and find out that he so much more than Amaranth’s lap dog. 😉 You’ll find out 😉 We meet new friends and learn about their lives and how everyone has come over some major trauma in their lives. We get to see a love blossom and find out that the gods had all this planned before Feyre even came to the Fae Realm. Tamlin is no longer mister nice guy and we get to see a darker side of him even though he thinks he is doing it out of love. Lucian gets to see a new side of Feyre one he does not like. 

At the end of the book the plot twist is so insane I thought I was going to die reading it. I just wanted to go into the book and help them I did not want things to happen the way they did even though it all seems to be part of Sarah J. Maas evil plan. More than one Mating Bond has been struck and now everything is crashing down around them and you are begging this book to give you just a few more pages before it is cut off.

Once again the famous Sarah J. Maas has left us with the biggest cliff hanger you could ever imagine. I’ve been counting down the months since October for the next book to come out!!!! This book is a must read.

I find that this book has made it almost impossible for me to read anything without holding it to this standard. 

Tamlin Pure EVIL!?

Lets pass around some ideas here shall we.

So something has been on my mind for a while now. I am going to blow the doors open to something very unthinkable that Sarah J. Maas could do here in the book A Court of Wings and Ruin.

In A Court of Mist and Fury Tamlin and Lucian both just magically appear at king’s palace, because they made a bargin. I do not think Tamlin is a dumb as we think he is. What if he knows that feyre wasn’t actually brain washed, but he just wanted to break the bond that way Rhysand could not find her. Lucian had to have told Tamlin the battle that happened and the promise she made to him if he ever came after her again.

So what if Tamlin is plotting with Ianthe to hold Feyre captive and use her powers for their own. Ianthe is obsessed with power she tried to get her claws into Rhysand but when that failed she went to Tamlin.

So at the end when Feyre is being led deep into the heart of the spring court. Is him taking her to Ianthe to use her power or try and take it from her. Or try and help the king of hybern. I think Ianthe has ties to the king and that is how Tamlin got a hold of him. Also when Tamlin went to check and wall or the border, or deal with issues what if he was working for the king doing his dirty work. Tamlin could be just as evil as the rest of his family but hides it so he can get his revenge on rhysand. and Lucian looks at her with hate what if he is looking at both her and Tamlin for trying to achieve their own motives and throwing all the people in the line of fire not worrying about what will happen to them.

Now keep in mind he probably has no idea about the secondary bond. But the first one he thought to be destroyed goes perfectly with his plans.
This has been on my mind and I would just like your guys opinion about if you think this could also be true. Or what you think could happen.
