Author- Sarah J. Maas
My Rating- 5 Stars
Overview- 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.
My Review- Another amazing book and start to a new series.
A Court of Thorns and Roses is filled with adventure and magic and great characters. The heroes are always very well developed and the villains are always deliciously wicked. I hate to love them, but Sarah J. Maas writes them so well.
Feyre (Fey-ruh, such a pretty name for a character) is a brave heroine yet she has her weaknesses and overcomes fear throughout the book. She is far from perfect and yet strong and loyal to her family and those she loves. After killing a wolf in the forest she suspected was a wicked Faerie from across the wall, a High Fae comes to claim her life as payment. Tamlin, the masked Fae, brings her to his manor where he intends to keep her captive forever, a life debt for the faerie she killed. But nothing is never as it seems. There are lies and a curse that must be broken in order to restore the falling Kingdoms of the Faeries and Feyre is key to this.
We also meet Rhysand, a character who I both hated and enjoyed at the same time. I did not like some of the things he used Feyre for throughout this book yet he got stuck in my head and I loved every scene he was in. Especially towards the end where this tale really heats up. The last half of this book is full of action and adventure and twists and turns.
A Court of Thorns and Roses is a great book and I instantly bought the second in the series. There was no way I could wait to find out what happens ....when a certain bargain must be fulfilled by Feyre which I think is going to be humorous and dangerous and possibly full of romance.
We will see.....
