Feyre is a huntress.
She thinks nothing of slaughtering a wolf to capture its prey. But, like all mortals, she fears what lingers mercilessly beyond the forest. And she will learn that taking the life of a magical creature comes at a high price...
Imprisoned in an enchanted court in her enemy's kingdom, Feyre is free to roam but forbidden to escape. Her captor's body bears the scars of fighting, and his face is always masked - but his piercing stare draws her ever closer. As Feyre's feeling for Tamlin begin to burn through every warning she's been told about his kind, an ancient, wicked shadow grows.
Feyre must find a way to break a spell, or lose her heart forever.
May have just found my new favourite author! After reading A Court of Thorns and Roses there was a huge book filled hole in my life. I could not decide what to do, there was just a void and so I spent the rest of the day (don’t worry it wasn’t all day, just the evening…) staring at the wall and contemplating the actual awesomeness of this book.
I realised how much I had missed out on for years. I’d heard about the Throne of Glass series and even have the frist one waiting for me on shelf. But just never got round to reading it. And I cannot believe I haven’t because this book has pretty much everything I enjoy in a book.
There is a romance, there is the save the world scenario(always good fun), a bad thing that is a bit mysterious (not sure what was happening for a while), a bit of mystery and suspense (I did mention the mysterious bad thing that remains mysterious for ages right?!). There’s awkward moments and revelations, heart-wrenching moments and others that leave you extremely satisfied.
But perhaps the most important thing was I was hooked from page one. It’s always satisfying when a book is so good, so inciting that there is no need to wait for it to get going, it’s already there.
A Court of Thorns and Roses is everything I could have asked for and more. And I’m now a Sarah J. Maas fan. Now I’m off to locate my Throne of Glass book, I need to fill this book hole with more fangirling.
