Rating: 5/5 Stars
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.
Wow. I don’t even known where to begin. This book blew me out of the water. It was addictive to say the least. There has been a ton of hype surrounding this book and let me say I was not disappointed. I found myself up until nearly 4 o’clock in the morning reading and finishing this book. It’s been a very long time since a book has had me up all hour of the night. A court of thorns and roses is the first novel I’ve read by Sarah J. Maas and now I completely understand the hype. Sarah J, Mass’s writing is beautifully additive. I really loved her writing style. Her characters were very well developed along with the world building. I never thought that I’d ever be able to get into the fantasy realm, but here I am wanting more fantasy than I’ve ever wanted before.
This world of humans, immortals, and dangerous creatures is full of action and romance and all around epicness (Is that even a word?). I loved the main character Feyre. She was fiery and heroic and didn’t go down without a fight. She was also sweet and fun when she wants to be.
And then there’s Tamlin…
Tamlin is the very attractive, very powerful immortal that any Fae or mortal would swoon over. The relationship between him and Feyre starts out full of hatred and hostility, but then blossoms into something far more.
I’m sill having trouble putting into words how much I love this book so I’m just going to leave it at this:
