A Court Of Mist And Fury

I have almost no hopes for this author. Especially since Queen of Shadows and I dnf Empire of Storms and A Court Of Thorns and Roses. And it didn’t disappoint. In the completely wrong way.

I still cannot even try to read the book, at best skim and some parts I read. But I just couldn’t find myself in it anymore. Why do I care about all these characters? I barely knew them. I barely knew every one of them.

I was only a quarter into A Court Of Thorns and Roses, and here I give up. There is virtually nothing attracting me to the series anymore, and I find myself scratching my head as to what was I reading. Other times, I could barely even bear to read it. Whether it is about them having sex, or the Fae or whatsoever. I don’t give a damn about any of them.

Because this work simply failed to pull me into it. And that’s all I have to say about it. Nothing about Feyre or Rhysand, nothing about their characters at all. Their romance was flat, what did I care to know what Rhysand gave her. There wasn’t really any tension. I was waiting for Tamlin to just appear way earlier and try different methods.

And in one of the chapters all of a sudden without warning I was reading about Rhysand. That just feels so strange. That just feels so weird. All of a sudden a change without really any clear indication at all. And there was nothing distinct about his voice, you could not even tell the difference should you compare.

I used to love Maas and held high hopes for her work. But with each disappointment, I think it has more to do with the time she is allocated to editing. I mean, she is releasing two huge books at the time without much time for her to edit. And really, I heard that the next book in throne of glass was written in a little over a week. I really don’t have any hopes that it would be decent in any way possible.

And now with this, I think I would be avoiding her for a while. A long good while. With this book, I give up on the series too. One book earlier than most since I can’t even find guilty pleasure.

  1. Thanks for the review! I heard this writer is really popular right now, but her writing quality has diminished. I don’t know if I’ll check out her work. I feel it’s hard for writers to stick to a long-term series, since overtime it may bore them or they lose ideas.

    1. Well, she certainly has. Even though she has great popularity, but for me, I guess it just didn’t work to make up for the lack of quality I was getting from her. And well, something to note, she might be the one that writes a rather fickle series, since by the fourth book, she changed the love interest, where there were two guys in book one, settled one by book two, and introduced another in book three which she ended up pairing Celaena with.
