A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!
So this book. As I'm sitting here trying to write this review, I feel this sadness coming over me. Sadness, because unfortunalty, unlike the rest of the world, I didn't LOVELOVELOVELOVE A Court of Thorns and Roses. Frankly, I was bored through most of the book and the only reason I finished it was this childish "maybe it'll get better" mentality. Spoiler: it didn't. While the world and Feyre were my favorite part of this book, I wasn't a fan of the romance, the plot was disappointing for various reasons, and the pacing was SLOOOOOOW even though I loved the main character (and Lucien!) and the world was utterly fantastic!
