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.


  • Read these series!

    By ErinRose32
    These series are my new favorite! It’s written well and the characters are awesome! There is so much development that I had to keep reading. Trust me, as a college student I should not have started these books during my semester cause I missed some assignments 😅 Read them!
  • Nothing Is What It Seems!

    By katelynmareads
    This book, along with the rest of the series, is not what it seems to be. What appears to be a slow burn fantasy romance novel unravels into a series of dark twists and turns that has you at the edge of your seat wondering what’s going to happen next. Please check trigger warnings as you dive deeper into this series, and expect the most unexpected from every character along the way. Nothing is what it seems! I wish I could read this book series for the first time all over again.

  • 5 MILLION / 5

    By CatMoutoux
    This . Book . Is . Phenomenal!!!!!! I stayed up til 2AM finishing this one & flew through about 75% of it from 8PM-2AM. It is literally flawless in my opinion. The author’s storytelling is absolutely exquisite & masterful — it’s one of those books that you EXPERIENCE. Think “Game of Thrones” meets “Beauty & The Beast”…but better. God, I loved this one. I’d give it a million stars & I CANNOT WAIT to read the rest of the series!!

  • Rushed, but rewarding

    By Kendra Maye
    The first half was a bit slow. It was hard to grasp with the characters, as their intentions weren’t clear. There were initially many holes in the story. However, the last half revealed everything I was at first confused about. It did feel rushed towards the end, since many answers were just laid out flat for you. But I would say the story wove together quite beautifully in the end. Lots of character arcs to look out for!
