Chances are if you read A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, you immediately started reading A Court of Mist and Fury (bonus points if it was for a book club)!
In my opinion, the second installment of this book series was not only captivating, I think it might have actually been even better than the first book.
And that means of course I needed some A Court of Mist and Fury book club questions to discuss it!
Feyre’s Back And More Compelling Than Ever
In this New York Times best-selling novel, we delve even deeper into the magical Fae world.
It’s full of new friends, human queens, powerful faes, and two realms trying to avoid impending war with an invading King Hybern.
The book is literally packed with action and intrigue, but what really captivates you is the character development.
A Court of Mist and Fury brings back Feyre, Tamlin, and Rhys (our high lord of the feared Night Court). It also adds a whole new cast of characters as well.
We get the chance to explore some of the intricacies of the Fae courts and their politics, with one of the newcomers (a High Priestess who leads ceremonies in nature) playing a major role.
Feyre and Rhysand’s True Love Story?
The development of Feyre’s relationship with Rhysand really carries a lot of the book, and it had me solidly in their corner from pretty early on.
It’s been brewing for a little bit, so it is satisfying to see that itch scratched as you get to answer “will they or won’t they”?
It really is quite the love story.
For the purposes of these questions, I’m assuming you’ve read the previous book in the ACOTAR series too (A Court of Thorns and Roses).
If you haven’t, you really should! It’s one of the best YA fantasy series I’ve had the pleasure to read in a long time.
Better yet, use these A Court of Thorns and Rose book club questions to read and discuss the novel with your book club!
When you’re ready, get cozy and get ready to dive into the second book of this exciting series using these discussion questions.
A Court of Mist and Fury Book Club Questions
