I finished this book few hours ago. What I must say? Why I hadn’t read it earlier?
I have this book on my shelf for about 2 months and I knew I’ll start it sooner or later. I was really tempted, but I have few boos to read before, so as I know that I have it, I was able to postpone the day I will start reading it. Anyhow, it came and now I can’t stop. I want the second book.
What I liked in this one? In the first pages I was able to see a map of the world from ACOTAR and I pretty much love maps of different worlds. The main character Feyre was described in an interesting way and her reason to kill the wolf was missing, or at least for me. I won’t hide that I didn’t liked her family and I was waiting to see who Tamlin is.
And talking about Tamlin… I like his character, but there was something that make me feel strange about him, I have no idea what. And probably this is the reason that I liked Rhysand way much more than Tamlin.
The story is very interesting. I like the plot and how the story line goes, but it was like pain to reed how stupid is Feyre and how she makes some wrong choices. But in the end of the book I somehow knew that it was for good.
The book ends very open and makes you want to take the second book right after to finish this one, but publishing date for Bulgarian version of „A Court of Mist and Fury“ is 28th May.
All in all, I liked the book a lot and I recommend it for the wide audience and fans of YA and fantasy.

Ceridwen Preben, princess of Summer, has spent her life plotting against her brother, Simon, the Summerian king. Simon has embraced the ruling family’s reputation for using their conduit to keep their subjects in a state of bliss, and has spent his reign slowly driving Summer into ruin, filling everyone with carelessness and letting them turn a blind eye to Summer’s rampant – and deadly – slave trade. But Ceridwen refuses to let her kingdom disintegrate, and with the help of her fellow rebel-in-arms, Lekan, she hopes to undo Simon’s lethal dealings.
But when Ceridwen uncovers Simon’s deadliest plot yet, she starts to realize just how deep magic runs – and that even though her kingdom is one of sunlight, with light, there always comes shadows.

I never knew what the consequences would be.
I say that like it’s a defense, an excuse.
It’s not. It’s simply the truth.
I never knew what he would become to me.
Through everything, he’s become everything.
My rock, my air, my love.
Because it was wrong.
Because sometimes, our sons must pay for the sins of their fathers.
Or their mothers.
I’m afraid that I’m lost,
that I’m damned.
After you read this, you’ll probably agree.
Really, it doesn’t matter.
All that matters is that I save him.
Because he shouldn’t pay for my sin.
Judge me if you like.
But keep reading.
This is our beginning.
This is where the darkness truly starts.
