“It’s a rare person to face who they are and not run from it – not be broken by it.”
I fell mad for S.J.M after reading A Court of Mist and Fury. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have expectations for ACOWAR afterward. It took me a long time to actually get a copy to read so I had so much anticipation and was so excited to read it. However, I think the only thing I didn’t like was the ending. I don’t feel fulfilled or satisfied with the ending, I want more and more and more.
The writing felt a bit muddled and indecisive. There was a lot of talk about war but it took a large portion of the book for it to actually happen. Is it just me or did Mor get extra jealous, bossy and kind of bitchy? She was snapping twenty-four-seven. Still, love Amren and the entire inner circle.
I have a growing love for Nesta and Elain now, especially my salty little Nesta. I only cried a bit at the end. Even though a few parts were predictable, they made me a little emotional. I live for unexpected deaths in novels so maybe that’s why I’m disappointed? Lol. A lot of tea was spilled and secrets.
I never expected some of them, I almost dropped my book a few times because of it. There’s a writing tip where you’re supposed to take everything from your characters, their love, dreams, hopes, and put blocks in front of the end goal. I feel like this happened but not the right way. Was it too much winning? Too much unreality? S.J.M always makes me feel some type of way and that’s the entire purpose of writing, whether it’s anger, frustration, love, admiration, understanding or even sadness it’s meant to make you feel.
I gave it 4/5 stars because I stayed interested and I really enjoyed the characters, I’m just not enlightened by the how the plot was written out. I can’t wait for A Court of Frost and Starlight, anything I can read with these characters, I live for. I definitely think everyone who has read the first two, should read this one as well. You learn a lot and there’s a lot of weird action lol. Plus, Feysand smut so there’s always that. 😉
