Book Talk: A Court of Hearts and Darkness (ACOTAR FanFic)

Hello, my darling readers!
If you haven’t unfollowed me by now for writing so many posts on the ACOTAR series, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this. After finishing the books by Sarah J. Maas I was so sad to let the series go, so I went on tumblr and found the best of all fanfics. A Court of Hearts and Darkness is just about an entire novel that continues the story after ACOWAR!

The Plot:

I’ll just let the wonderful Zoe (who wrote the fanfic) summarize the story:

It’s been over a century since the epic and bloody war against Hybern, but a new, unprecedented horror lies in wait to threaten everything the Inner Circle holds dear.

At a mere 17, it seems that the only one who can save them is the Heir to the Night Court, Feyre and Rhysand’s daughter Eleana, but as a creature so vile promises to kill everyone she loves, she must combat the urge to succumb to the darkness herself. The key to success lies hidden within her mate, the bastard born Kaden, who is as oblivious to the bond as her Court is oblivious to the war on the horizon.

With the help of her cousin and warrior Felix, the son of the famed Nesta and Cassian, they will try to save everything they hold dear, hopefully before the darkness takes them all.

The Rating:

This was just about the most perfect to get me out of my “I finished everything in the ACOTAR series”-slump. Just like with the original books by Sarah J. Maas, I couldn’t stop reading.

Her story is set after ACOWAR as she started writing before ACOFAS came out. So there are a few things that contradict the SJM books. However, I was more than prepared to overlook that little flaw.
A Court of Hearts and Darkness features all your most beloved characters from the original books, but as it’s set quite some time after them, we get so many new characters. Amazing, wonderful characters who will cause your heart to break.

10 Thoughts I had while reading the ACOTAR series.

Hey guys!
I did reviews on all the books so far published in Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thrones and Roses series. However, in a normal review I just couldn’t squeeze in all the thoughts going through my head. So here’s a post consisting solely that – of course filled with spoilers!

#1 – Ianthe:

I didn’t like you bitch from the very start. But could you please stop – you know – breathing?

#2 The Suriel:

Sarah J. Maas, who dare you? Why did you have to kill off ACOTAR’s gossip girl? Just when everybody fell for this creepy creature. My heart will forever break over the chapter the Suriel died in.

#3 The Weaver:

As the first installment of ACOTAR is obviously a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, in terms of fairy-tales the Weaver reminded me a bit of Hansel and Gretel. Wicked bitch living in a house in the middle of the woods luring people do their doom and devouring them.
HOWEVER, she’s my favorite bitch out there for not only killing of Ianthe but for having the balls to wear her jewlery while slaughtering thousands on the battle field. That’s what I call badass.

#4 Tamlin:

Just shut the fuck up ok? After finishing the series for the first time, I didn’t hate him that much. I just really disliked him. But after reading I a second time, my dislike grows.

I mean, seriously, how selfish can you be?
“Your hair is…clean.” What kind of compliment is that? And then at the end of everything UTM, instead of doing something (*cough cough* shout out to Rhys *cough cough*) he just sits there and does literally nothing until it’s too late for Feyre.

Why do you blog? – a question asked by headinavice

I recently came across a post here on wordpress in which the blogger tells us why he started to blog in the first place. It’s in interesting question that reveals more about the person behind the computer screen, so here we go:

I always loved writing. When I was younger I used to write a lot, and by that I blogreally mean A LOT. But during my last years of school, my creative side seemed to die a little. The school I attended was about economy and accounting. As you can tell these subjects have absolutely nothing to do with creativity and for the last years everything was about efficiency and doing only what brings benefits. Thus I began neglecting my hobbies like drawing and writing more and more. Continue reading
