A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1) by Sarah J. Maas

Book Summery (Via Goodreads):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.

Book Review:
After being slightly disappointed with Heir of Fire, I took my time picking up A Court of Thorns and Roses. Upon finishing ACOTAR, I'm happy to announce that this is Maas' writing that I fell in love with to begin with. Although the first 100 pages are a bit slower paced, the rest of the book makes up for it. The imagery is powerful and vivid. I can easily picture the lush ancient forests and the humble cottage Feyre lived in. Feyre is a powerful main character, full of strength, anger, and beauty. I'm not as much of a fan of Tamlin...I found him to be a bit boring. I did really like Lucien. I would love to learn more about his story. Overall, the story was really engaging, fast paced, and difficult to set down. I highly anticipate the next installment of the series.

Cover Art Commentary:
The cover is a gorgeous cover. I love the subtle references to the story. Overall, well done!



  1. Glad you loved this one! I just read the Throne of Glass books, and I adore Sarah's writing. Can't wait to get my hands on this!

  2. I agree that beginning is a little slow, but I ended up loving this one as well!
