A Court of Mist and Fury

Excerpt: "Feyre has undergone more trials than one human woman can carry in her heart. Though she's now been granted the powers and lifespan of the High Fae, she is haunted by her time Under the Mountain and the terrible deeds she performed to save the lives of Tamlin and his people.


As her marriage to Tamlin approaches, Feyre's hollowness and nightmares consume her. She finds herself split into two different one who upholds her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court, and one who lives out her life in the Spring Court with Tamlin. While Feyre navigates a dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms. She might just be the 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 in turmoil."


My Rambles: I really hate the "stolen powers" thought process. That power was given to her she was literally dead, she had no say in any of that. I'm not saying Feyre was shy but I find it odd she was so ok, act or not, with the "exhibition" moment in the Hewn city. I don't think Tarquin was given enough credit either, like I get it, I do, foreign court and all, better to ask forgiveness than permission, but still. He'd have been a great ally from the beginning. Nesta is not given enough credit either. She tried, hated the fae and yet still tried. What she went through was very traumatic and everyone handles trauma differently. She didn't have someone like Rhys to try and help her through it.....this likely should be said during my rambling for her book but still. Seeing her care means so much to me.

I'm with Rhys on not telling Feyre about the mating bond. I understand the argument of she should know, he shouldn't make the choice for her but she wouldn't have accepted him. Not at the moment it snapped into place. Even shortly after their bargain was put in place, she wouldn't have agreed. She needed to heal first before she could even come to terms with it. I'm not saying she's fully healed or anything but she needed that life breathed back into her first.
