a court of thornes and roses by sarah j maas

genre: fantasy

length: 432 pages

time to read: 1 day

Synopsis:

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.

good lord was I excited to read this series. there has been sooooo much hype surrounding it, and I was finally ready to put it to the test. Feyre’s character development throughout this book is breathtaking, from the beginning of her being the one to take care of her family, which was very reminisent of katniss in the hunger games, to her learning to trust tamlin and building a bond with him.

the book itself was a little slow, it took a while for the plot to develop and thicken but when it did I was absolutely addicted. so if you are struggling to get into it, trust me it will pick up about halfway through.

the wrath of amarantha was absolutely insane to read, it was difficult to read Feyre’s character struggle immensely and sacarfice so much. Rhysands characted defiently peaked my interest and I am excited to see more of his character in future books.
