Description

The sexy, action-packed first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Court of Thorns and Roses series from Sarah J. Maas.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.

At least, he's not a beast all the time.

As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever.

From bestselling author Sarah J. Maas comes a seductive, breathtaking book that blends romance, adventure, and faerie lore into an unforgettable read.

    I’m surprised at how unskilled the writing is here, given Maas’s popularity. I’ve read indie fantasy authors with much better writing chops. The sentences are clunky, and loose; the descriptions mediocre, and the protagonist is very 2D. It reads like something a talented 10th grader might have come up with. That said, the story is amusing. I purchased all books at once on discount and hope I can get through them. But so far, the first one is difficult to keep reading.

    This series is a must read - I got so invested in the love and heartbreak that runs throughout the series. It made me cry, it made me laugh, and it made me swoon on so many levels. So many feels. Highly recommend

    I held off reading this book for months, I didn’t really know if I would like it from other reviews I had read. I was wrong!!!! Once I started reading I couldn’t not put it down. Read it in one day.

    Truthfully, I had just come down off a FBAA/AKOFAF hangover but needed more. I had been seeing this series everywhere and just took my time looking at different reviews and the most consistent one I read was that the first book was slow. While I admit it is slow, the reason for it is to set up the story, the setting, everything. It’s a beautiful kind of slow that enchants your mind and makes you want to know more. Maas writes in a way that tells you exactly what she sees when she created this universe of high lords, faeries, and mortals. I loved this book and I’m so excited to read the next few.

    This was the most beautiful and charming escape...I got lost in these pages and didn’t want to leave. If you’re looking for a book that is impossible to put down - this is it.
  • A bit boring at times

    It started well enough but stalled somehow in the middle so much so that I became bored and considered not finishing. The end did pick up again and became somewhat exciting but the pace of this book is not as her other series
