We all know that 2015 is Sarah J. Maas’s year and we’re all just living in it.
With the highly anticipated release of Queen of Shadows in September, the latest in the Throne of Glass series, it’s easy to forget that she began the year by releasing another startlingly amazing series, A Court of Thorn and Roses. If you are not familiar with the series, read the publisher’s description here:
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin–one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin–and his world–forever.
As we close in on less than 200 days, we now have a name to the second novel in this series: A Court of Mist and Fury. What can it mean?? Here’s Bloomsbury’s description of the second book in the series:
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.
I think we all know Feyre is going to have to come to terms with her time in the Spring court and for her feelings for Tam versus Rhysand (we are, currently, Team Tam). I’m secretly hoping that the word “Fury” in the title refers to Feyre kicking some ass as well because there are quite a number of characters in need of this, particularly Amarantha.
Nonetheless, we eagerly anticipate the second novel in this series, to be released May 3, 2016. If you want to pre-order, then do so here.
