A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Timesbestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beastwith faerie lore.
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.
Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!
Oh. My. God.
This book is everything I had expected and more. So much more.
At first I wasn’t sure if I should read it or not, there was so much hype over this book that I felt as if by reading it I would get disappointed. Not the case. Not even close.
This book is wonderful. The characters are incredibly deep and real, the plot is so well thought and has a great pace and the writing is just beautiful. The world Sarah created is magical, beautiful and so incredibly dangerous. I love it. The idea of different courts based on seasons is very original to me, I had never read anything like it before.
The characters are fantastic! I loved them all. I love how Feyre is so strong and badass, I love how Tamlin refuses to be any less than what he truly is, I love Lucien and his sass and Rhys. I know, I know, here I go again falling in love with the bad guy. What can I say? I can’t help it.
Hopefully we’ll get more time with him on the next book.
I can’t say this enough, this book is amazing and if you haven’t already go read it now. Like right now! You have no idea what you’re missing. I can’t wait for the next one.
PS: this book is borderline New Adult and contains some spicy scenes so read it with that little piece of information in mind.
