Goodreads Description: 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.

For nearly a year, I have been in a major reading slump and this book got me out of it. I am in love with this book. I read it in two days. If you love fantasy and fairytale retellings, this is the book for you. Every word on every page gripped me.  A Court of Thorns and Roses is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast with fantasy aspects.  This book doesn’t exactly follow Beauty and the Beast. There have been some changes such as Tamlin being Fae, Feyre loving art instead of books, and so on. Feyre is 19 years old. The youngest of three sisters.  Feyre  goes through major character development.

There are three guys in this book that I am in love with: Tamlin, who is the Beast, Lucien, and Rhys (kind of).  Sarah J. Maas is an amazing writer.  She always seems to create amazing guy characters that you can’t help but fall in love with.  The world building in this book is amazing and makes me very excited for the second book.

There are so many things that I want to say about this book, but because this is a spoiler free review, I can’t really say much of anything.  Pick up this book as soon as you can!

    I agree, this book was a great read. I wonder how the author is going to handle writing two series at once? I think Throne of Glass is supposed to have six books, and this is supposed to have three. I hope this doesn’t mean we’re going to have to wait two years between books for one series or the other! Then again, I love both series so maybe one book will make it worth the wait for the other. 🙂

      I absolutely love her Throne of Glass series! I’m glad that it’s six books instead of a trilogy. I just looked it up: The second ACOTAR book comes out next year and so does the next Throne of Glass book. At least we don’t have a two year gap for these books to be published.

        That is great news! Two year waits are terrible. Hopefully the author can keep up the amazing quality writing two books a year. Only time will tell. 🙂
