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. goodreads
I still asked myself why I didn’t pick this up the year it was published. The only Sarah J. Maas book that I read was Throne of Glass (Please don’t kill me!) I don’t know why but that was really is.
From the first chapter until the last is well written. The world building is on point! Unlike the other fairy tale retellings, I didn’t felt like it was a Beauty and the Beast retelling, like ever. It was a coffee that every pages energized me all night that I need to force myself to stop reading to sleep.
What I like:
- The spring court and the garden
- Lucien’s comeback liners
What I don’t like:
- THEIR NAMES! No matter how hard I tried to pronounce everything their names in proper way, I got used to the pronunciations I invented myself. I am still struggling in the second book.
I thought there was a lot of steamy scenes but, there’s not much, I don;t know the next book though.
If I didn’t know it is a trilogy, I would have thought it was a stand alone, It just ended so well. Now I looked on what’s next in the next two books.
