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 gave this book a 3/5. i liked it well enough, but seeing how the whole series ends, i wish i hadn’t bothered reading it.
  • Unoriginal female lead

    Just started this book and so far I’m a little disappointed. The main character is strong but she doesn’t speak her mind. Her family treats her horribly but she doesn’t stand up for herself. And of course she’s a plain brunette with the personality of a stick. Which is how every young woman is written in every YA book. It’s so gross to read woman this way, so boring and demeaning. She should have been written like Alina from the Shadow and Bone series. Now that’s a good female lead! She’s strong and speaks her mind.
  • Absolutely inviting and hard to put down

    I read a lot of the reviews to see if this book was worth $14. And this it the truth, the books plot is good, but it’s rushed. She falls in love too quickly and without explanation, the book suggest time passes but dose a horrible job telling us what happened in the months and weeks that pass.This book should have almost been two books, there’s a lot she doesn’t unpack which left me personally confused. It dose get a lot better past the half way point. Iv heard this series has a rough book 1 but the writing gets better. I will be buying the 2nd book.

    Excellent book. The best way to describe this book is a combination of elements similar to that of: The Hunger Games The Chronicles of Narnia Beauty and the Beast Game of Thrones And perhaps Vampire Diaries. It was such a fulfilling read. You feel along side of the characters. It is emotional, gory, romantic, suspenseful and sexy. Someone in an earlier review mentioned it starting slow. That is accurate but trust the pacing because it will continue to build and the action will eventually leave you breathless. Very highly recommend!

    This book actually was really well reading other reviews made me a little nervous. But the book does start really slow but it turned into something I couldn’t put down. I highly recommend.

    Loved it.
  • Slow start

    Pretty good. Starts slow and the relationship between the main characters really isn’t built well. It kinda jumps from point A to point Z with little to no build up. However, the overall story is interesting and I will try book 2.
  • Beauty and the best for adults

    Good story, just too much for one book. The love story is interesting enough to make it worth a read, the action is very raw and descriptive. I will definitely read the other books, but probably won’t be a book on my nightstand
