A Court of Thorns and Roses

By: Sarah J Maas
Location: FIC MAA
Genre: Fae, Fairy Tales Retold, Paranormal

The breathtaking start to a seductive high-fantasy from New York Times bestselling author of Throne of Glass series.

“You look . . . better than before."
Was that a compliment? I could have sworn Lucien gave Tamlin an encouraging nod.
"And you hair is . . . clean.”

Beauty and the Beast- Sarah J Maas styles!

“Be glad of your human heart, Feyre. Pity those who don’t feel anything at all.”

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price.

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

The action! The romance! The love scenes! Tamlin! Rhys! FAERIES! A character who I totally HATED but who redeemed herself! A kick-butt heroine! A fairy-tale-esque setting! A GIANT manor! Baddies in the woods!  - Anna

“We need hope, or else we cannot endure.”
