    I don't think I can accurately describe my feelings about this book, okay?? I do know that I need a third book. Desperately. Also the author blurb in the back simply states this as "the second book in the House of Furies series" so, like with my rather stubborn ship of Morningsi...

    I enjoyed this one much more than the first, House of Furies. I still wish there was a tad bit more of the creep factor in these books. This series is definitely more Fantasy than Horror. This story was more action packed and faced past than the first; however, there was still a little...

    Oh my lord I needed this read. Been in a reading slump lately?even books I know I would love I can?t get into. Yet somehow Roux drew me back into the macabre, twisty, utterly unique world she began in last year?s House of Furies. She expanded the world greatly without massive exp...

    Well...First off, the cover change...such a discussion about the cover of this book. I do like this cover, the red dress is stricking but to change the cover on the second book, having the first book NOT match the second book...it's too much for my bookshelf OCD. I surprisingly enjoy...

    I think the sequel was even better than the first. More danger, higher stakes, and a battle amongst the gods! Everything was about this book was even more intriguing than the first. Highly enjoyable! Definitely can't wait for the next installment! ...

    Enjoyable book! The pacing was good, which I always worry about. There were no boring parts and it picked up pretty soon after the first book. Louisa is such an interesting character. I liked seeing her develop her powers since she discovered them last book. The convening of the court ...

    I can?t say I loved the directions this book took in the end; but I enjoyed the journey getting there. Book 1 is far superior and I felt it a little spookier and more gothic. This one felt more supernatural and modern. I also noticed quite a lot of grammar and spelling mistakes i...

    I loved this book! It was such a fantastic sequel and I loved the character development! The addition of new characters added some interesting elements and tension to the story, and it was a wonderfully creepy read! I cannot wait for the next book! ...

    wow this was so much better! the story feels so much bigger in this one. with new intriguing characters, a deeper mythological/folklore background, a journal into another time which I personally loved reading about and we finally learn Louisa?s origin. ...

    THIS BOOK. Okay. Okay. My reading backlog is monstrous but I've had a couple of days to work from home so I picked up House of Furies (Book 1) on Tuesday. I read it IN A DAY. I could not WAIT to pick up Court of Shadows (Book 2), and have once again devoured it in one sitting. Th...

    The first word that comes to mind when I think of this book is "atmospheric." I felt very firmly ensconced in the world of Coldthistle House and all the shady plots therein. This book picks up right where House of Furies ended, and continues the story of Louisa, Henry Morningside, a...

    I really have enjoyed this series. I'm not someone who likes to read horror novels often but this series blow me away. I love that it was set in Victorian England with the traditional gothic genre, angels and demons, ghosts and spirts. Thou I have to say, I enjoyed the first book more...

    HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH THIS WAS SO GOOD!!!!! I can't honestly write a review (which I've decided I'll do, now) being as I just now finished the book and I'm trying to digest things. BUT!!! Just know that I love love LOVE this book and this series and the characters and...

    Rating: 3.5/5 The book because tends to go on aimlessly for some time. There's a few plot points stories that I wish were given just a bit more attention e.g. I would have loved to read the entirety of Bennu's journal. I definitely wanted to know more about the history between Mr. M...

    I absolutely love this series! It is so dark and spooky! Louisia starts having very disturbing dreams and something strange is happening at Coldthistle House.. Louisa is determend to figure out who or what it is. These strange people come as well to put Mr. Morningside on trial. They s...

    3.5 Court of shadows by madeleine roux was an extraordinarily strange book topping my list of gothic styled fantasy that chose to be different than any that came before it. I adored the first installment it was dark and it was atmospheric. The images and diary entries helped solidi...

    4.5/5 stars! This one started out slower than the last book but definitely got good towards the end! The storyline was a lot different from the last book which was nice but I did like the last book because of the unique storyline. This storyline was still unique but was borderline mai...

    Ugh, why did they do a cover change? I know I'm being fussy but they first showed a matching cover that was red to go with the first cover which is blue. It would've looked so nice! I'm getting so sick of cover changes so that we have nothing to match with the first one we spend mon...

    I dont think I can properly explain how much I love this series. The world this is set in is absolutely amazin in my opinion and all I want to do is learn more about these characters. In Cour of Shadows we learned more about a religion that came before the Sheperd and Morningside came ...

    As with the first in the series, I absolutely adored this book. I have always been a fan of gothic fiction and this series has met all the criteria I set for the genre. It has supernatural elements, a touch of mystery, and a healthy dose of horror. However, what I loved so much about t...

    3/4 of the book was so painfully slow but the last 100 pages or so made up for it. I love Roux's work and rated it a 4 because I've really grown to admire her as a person. But if I were to stumble upon this book and had not have read any of her previous books, I would have rated it muc...

    I think I enjoyed this book more than the first one! In the first one there is a lot of introduction to the world and characters, while in this sequel it jumps right in where house of furies ended. The action just keeps such a good pace in this book. I simply love Louisa and all the ch...

    I've been waiting for this sequel for months and it did not disappoint! And that ending... it seems that this series will still be continuing (*add happy screaming noises and incoherent cries of exultation here*). I hope that we'll see more Morningside in the next book because he insta...
