A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

About (Goodreads)

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.

My Thoughts

If you read any fantasy book, anytime soon, read this one. It’s fantastic.

Feyre is a strong, independent, naive girl. She thinks she knows her world and about the Fae. But she’s wrong.

When she consciously kills a Fae in would form, her real story begins. So too, does the retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

I’ve said it before- retellings are my favorite types of books. The imagination it takes to retell a book, basing it on a loved story but taking it somewhere completely different, is hard and takes true authorship.

The story of Feyre and Tamlin is 100% my favorite retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I’ve always liked Fae stories and the world’s they live in and the beauty of the beings and lands told about these peoples. But, Tamlin…well,he’s the type of Fae you sigh about. And by sigh I mean, swoon sigh. Laugh if you will but, that man, oh my.

Have you ever fallen in love with fictional character? If you haven’t, I am sad for you. If you have, read this book and fall in love and agony with Tamlin. It’s such a romantic, nerves churning, wit infused story.

I do have to say, I didn’t care for Feyre family in the slightest. They made me want to punch each of them in the face. Especially, her father.

I think the whole rescuing end is very exciting. It fit. Feyre is such a strong character that anything less than the ending of her rescuing Tamlin would not have been just. So, read their story.

5 out of 5 stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
