Book Review | A Court of Mist & Fury (ACOMAF) by Sarah J. Maas

#4

Phew, that was fast. At last, the truth will be revealed, at last the plot will be twisted! This book was good. Its unpredictable, lots of secrets awaits to be told, betrayal, power fighting. Its all you can ever imagine on a life of immortal fae.

Before reading this I have dilemma and uneasy feeling because from ACOTAR I was totally immersed with Feylin (Feyre + Tamlin) relationship. Im afraid I must force my mind to forget what I had already know at ACOTAR. Only after 20 Chapters above that I stop being frustrated and embrace what should Feyre deserves. SAJ really done a satisfying masterpiece, for once, you’ll think it as another love story but the sec you realize it was not and you just get your mind blowing because of it. 

Goodreads Summary :

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.

The Characters

❥ Rhysand – He is such a darling, loving and delicate little creatures. He was totally unique, the greatest star of ACOMAF. So handsome, so calm, so brave, I feel I just want to cuddle him and glamour myself as Feyre instead. Lols. 
❥Feyre – Since the incident on ACOTAR, she become stronger, truth to herself and become badass wicked and smart girl. They deserves each other against all hope and against all odd. Was totally immersed in Feysand relationship development. I can relate her so much. How from a breakable girl she changes into one who follow her heart. She was broken but then she healed. There is nothing can stop her. 
❥ Mor, Amren, Cassians and Azriel – they were truth to their friendship. They were introduce on ACOMAF, the circle that for me was the backbone of the book. They were kind, funny, have badass power and fight like they are not gonna die. They were special in every bone, risking their life for the sake of others, such a loyal member of the court and does want Feyre to be herself without having her to worry that they want her to change like whom they want.

I just hope these series turns into Avengers where all the heroes are super hard to be killed, even they were test into their edge, they still alive. I just wish none of these character actually dying.

❥ Annoying antagonist. One of the biggest plot twist in this book when an antagonist changing to protagonist and I approve and embrace that changes. 

❥ Mysterious comeback – I love this part where mini character from ACOTAR shown in ACOMAF, such as Suriel. Lols

The character turn out to develop really really well. Its just different from every aspect of characters that I usually found on other books. I love their background, how they become who they now, and for that SAJ, kudos!

The Plot Twist

The plot was mind blowing, a lil of bit a lil of that, you could be laughing at several pages and you could be thrilled at several later and a minutes later drown in love. It was so intense and make my heard begging whats next whats next. 

So much surprises and I like it, I love how I cant predict what happen next, the thrill was feed able and enjoyable nonetheless.

Plus there are more than three plot twist that actually hard to brain but that just the way it is. Leaving me with satisfactions and I reread it over and over. Thank God I have paperback + ebook copy so I can alternately use despite of where I am. 

The World 

SAJ make a real escape on her pieces of art where I found myself literally imagining her writing. Deep and real. That what I tot and thats what I feel. Wonderful, cruel and magical. ACOMAF was packs of action and brutal things also. 
Rating : ★★★★★ (I love it!)
P/s: This gonna be the only romance-fantasy fiction series that Im gonna read maybe for half a year. Since im done with romance fiction lets get back with all the paranormal thingy next week key? I consider myself lucky for not tearing but worst.. I’m falling in love with Rhys.. Hmm. Its hard to be bibliophile sometimes, especially the part when you fall in love with a fictional character. Haha. I guess that cant be help. And I have many rival, that cant be help either. 

Cheers and have fun on your weekend.

  • Terima kasih @imanpublication providing me a free copy in exchange with a honest review. Belum habis baca sebenarnya tapi nak post dulu lah teaser. 😋

Dah baca 180 pages and I love it! Okay sy cuba berlaku adil dengan buku-buku yg sy pernah bca sebelum ni. But this one, was one of its kind. Susunan ayat, installing the character personalities semuanya menjangkaui telahan yang saya telah fikirkan berkenaan novel-novel melayu 😂.
.
.
.
Daebak! Hanya satu ayat menunjukkan betapa saya kagum akan novel ini. But I need to dig more sebab tak selalu buku melayu membuatkan semangat membaca saya membara 😉. Tahniah penulis atas penulisan setengah novel yang begitu dramatik dan intimate.
  • QOTD : What book make you cringe to do something after reading it?
.
.
.
Last week I've been indulge myself in gaming assuming an assassin role mentioned in #projekathena. The mutual connection between the role both in the book also in ML make me cringe to know what its like to be an assassin. Eventually I fall in love with her. So my next move is climbing up the local rank for that particular heroes 😂. I blame @syeraho for this. .
.
.
Back to this book, its been a tearful journey, it was a long reading but a worthy one. I bet one can finish it in one sit as the words uses is simple and understandable.
.
.
.
Not to mentioned it was my first book from HF. Honestly its hard to rate this kind of book, where islamic lifestyle and fiction were blend together. For my version of rating, I tend to give high rate to the book which has intimate, personal connection to the reader (me), so for that reason I'll give 4⭐. Even after catching a headache resulting from tears streaming last night 😣. .
.
.
This book recommend for a light reading, bedtimes stories also to those who keen to seek assuring words of His Promises. No particular reader, I think its just suit for everyone. Also a nice book to read it Ramadan!

The book synopsis gonna be in the comment below :
  • Alhamdulillah done reading a malay science fiction about Projek Athena : Manusia Ciptaan (trans : Athena's Projeck : Human Building). Thank you to @imanpublication for providing me a physical copy of this book in exchange with honest review.
.
.
.
And it was a fun reading towards the end. And syabas @syeraho for your first novel! .
.
.
This book recommend to those who love actions because Syeraho write a beautiful chereofighting, well mostly in words - and that something to praise with!
.
.

I'm currently constructing in depth review for this book and will update it soon on Goodreads - read on GR cause  i'm hiding all the spoilers and leave you with all the good parts, lols 😜.
.
.
.
Rating : 3/5 🌠. Sorry there are pro and cons so I'll settle with this first 😉 and also dont judge by my rating cause im just a very stinky person 😅. .
.
.
Setiap buku harus punya awal niatnya yg tersendiri (Eyqa, 2019).
  • QOTD : What book do you bought only because of its cover?
.
.
.
First time encounter buku published by @katapilarbooks ialah masa baca Syif Tengah Malam. Rupanya this is penerbit yg penulis dia dikalangan doktor, misi also yang bertugas di hospital.
.
.
.
One of many reason I like about them is their cover yg lain dari yang lain. Mcm this one.
.
.
.
Jadi izinkan saya post pasal book cover mendahului book review dulu ya. 😂
.
.
.
Okay sekian. Saja nak bagitau cover dia cantik. 😉
  • Big thanks to @prologmed cos hosting a GA for this book last year 💖.

Akhirnya dapat juga habiskan buku ni. Dalam buku ni ada enam cerpen yang bertemakan time travel. Buat yg mendambakan peluang kedua dalam waktu yang terbatas, pembaca diajak untuk menilai semula sekiranya kita bisa merentas masa untuk mengubah sejarah, adakah kita akan lebih bahagia dari sekarang? Or worse? Or dlm erti kata lain kena baca dlu buku ni baru tahu 😂.
.
.
.
Dalam enam cerpen aku paling terkesan dengan yang ada love story with bit of plot twist. Yang ada karakter yang kuat dan background cerita yang baik. Sometimes rasa geram but another time rasa bahagia tgk kebahagiaan character biarpun fiksi semata.Tak nak bagi spoiler jadi ckp secara am sejalah yer.
.
.
.
Overall it was a good book. Kalau fans tentang Hermione with Time Turner, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child boleh lah try baca buku ni, setiap kisah ada teladan masing-masing. Yang tak akan dapat dinilai melainkan dengan cara membacanya sendiri. Hahh suspen takk? .
.
.
⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 cause I want more. The book alone tak cukup 😂.
