Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: YA Fantasy
Type: Book 1 of 6 from A Court of Thorns and Roses series
POV: First Person – Female
Feyre’s family has been struggling with poverty since the last few years. To keep food on the table, she often went on a hunt close to the fae territory border. One day she hunted the wrong creature and as punishment, she was taken to their land of Prythian.
As a High Fae, Tamlin was used to the faeries looking up to him. But a human presence in his place created tension especially when she hated his race. But hatred and attraction had to take a back seat when a more pressing matter looming over the land.
I’ve seen people go crazy about this series but I never thought I would read it since it’s a long series. But curiosity pushed me to jump in and I didn’t regret it one bit.
I would not become a burden to him. I would not become another weight pressing upon his shoulders.
I like how Feyre was dedicated in her cause. She had her shortcomings but she knew how to work her strengths. Though, there were times she seemed a bit ignorant.
“I might take an animal form, but I am civilized, Feyre.”
One word that could describe Tamlin is noble. I like seeing which direction he would go when presented with an issue. I love him for what he believed in.
I had never seen anyone so handsome—and never had so many warning bells pealed in my head because of it.
Rhysand and Lucien were equally memorable. While Rhys was mysteriously sexy, Lucien was fun and irreverent.
I find being with Feyre while she explored the magical kingdom and learning new things was interesting. However the pace was little slow. It took a while for it to change direction but once it did, it made it up with a lot of action and suspense.
All I had wanted—all I had dared want, was a life that was quiet, easy. Nothing more than that. Nothing extraordinary.
A Court Of Thorn and Roses is a story of self discovery and fighting for one’s beliefs. It would appeal to fans of faeries and fantasy.
