A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1) by Sarah J. Mass (Teen Fantasy/Adventure)

A court of thorns and rosesA thrilling, seductive new series from New York Timesbestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore. 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.

Stars: 3.5/5

Honestly, I read this book so long ago I can’t remember a lot besides that I liked it. I got it as an Advanced Readers Copy, but was not allowed to review it until the book released (which was yesterday). While the plot is different from Maas’s other series, Throne of Glass, her writing is much the same. Feyre is a strong female, though not so strong it makes her stupid (well not all the time) and there is just enough mystery and intrigue to keep you from guessing what’s going to happen next. I can’t wait for the next book to come out, though I’ll probably have to reread this one before it does.
