Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly awaiting. This week I’m choosing A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. Last week, Bloomsbury treated us to the long awaited ACOMAF cover reveal and I and completely thrilled with the new design. We get to see a bit more of Feyre’s face, but it’s her intricate outfit, the gorgeous shade of blue and of course the hand tattoo (which if you’ve read A Court of Thorns and Roses you’ll know how that got there!). This is probably the first time that I’ve ever loved a U.S. cover more than a U.K. cover which is also a huge deal. The U.S. cover has some of the buildings from the court in the distance, the stone archway and visible mist while the U.K. cover is more plain but it does keep the thorns instead of mist. A Court of Mist and Fury is definitely in my top 3 most anticipated releases of 2016 and I’m dying to find out what’s next for the characters I fell in love with last May. I’m also really excited that ACOMAF is 624 pages. I would honestly love if it were thousands of pages long!
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. (via Goodreads)
