I haven´t read the first book in this series yet, but this is no reason for me not to look forward to A Court of Mist and Fury (scheduled for release on May 3rd, 2016 by Bloomsbury).
Book one stands already in one of my shelves here at home. And a few days ago I started listening to the audio book of A Court of Thorns and Roses, and even though I am not very far yet, I already like what I hear.
But I´ll have to read the physical book, too. I don´t know why that is, or if I am the only one who experiences that, but I discovered, that I have to actually read a book – not only listening to a narrator´s voice – to get the full picture. Maybe it´s because I can´t do anything else during listening to an audio. No vacuuming, no dishes, no painting, no drawing - ´cause after a little while, I am so occupied in what I am doing, that I stop listening. And, as if that wouldn´t be enough, I don´t know where I stopped paying attention to the audio, so I have to rewind till I hear something familiar. And that is, to say the least, quite annoying.
I only experienced it otherwise when I am running through the woods. There I can listen without my mind drifting away. But I can´t do that all the time 24 hours a day only to finish a book, can I.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
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.
