Synopsis: 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.

My thoughts: Wo-. I started this book, happy, excited, anticipating another fabulous Sarah J. Maas book. No. I found the romance a bit too intense. I also found this book rather slow, and I almost gave up at chapter two- but me being me, and a Court of Thorns and Roses being a Sarah J. Maas book, I perservered. Worst mistake of my life. And one of the best. ACOTAR had a good plot, and fabulous characters. (They had flaws!) Feyre: Strong-minded, stubborn, loyal, independant, supportive and a regular shoulder to cry on. Tamlin: One of the most confusing, conflicted characters I have ever read about. We see multiple sides of him over the course of the book. Lucien: A sassy character that would give Percy Jackson a run for his money! (Only Percy would still win, because he is Percy, and therefore awesome.)

Even with the romance, I award this book a commendable award, and 4 stars. (Why else would I be counting down the days until a Court of Mist and Fury comes out? Btw, it’s 13!)
