Five top settings in YA fantasy

At the BN Teen blog, Jenny Kawecki tagged five of the coolest settings in YA fantasy, including:
The Night Court (A Court of Mist and Fury, by Sarah J. Maas)

Okay, you should probably start with A Court of Thorns and Roses, in which Feyre first finds herself living in the Kingdom of Prythian with Tamlin, High Lord of the Spring Court, after sort-of-accidentally killing one of the Fae. But A Court of Mist and Fury is where it really gets good. After saving Tamlin from the darkness threatening the entire faerie realm, Feyre has to fulfill a bargain she struck with Rhysand, High Lord of the Night Court. And sure, the Spring Court is nice, if you like flowers and stuff, but the Night Court is dark and threatening and stuffed to the brim with mysterious power. It’s also beautiful and artistic and surprisingly charming. And the best part? There’s still more of Prythian to explore.
