Book Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses
Author:  Sarah J. Maas
Publisher:  Bloomsbury Children's, 416 pages
Publication Date:  May 5, 2015

From Goodreads:
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.

Although it started a bit on the slow side, at a certain point I was hooked and I ended up LOVING THIS BOOK.

Phenomenal world-building, with FAERIES, and a sexy romance between noble Tamlin and prickly Feyre (who I didn't like at first, to be honest, but amazing character growth).  

Then you have mysterious Rhysand…I'm still not sure what to think about some of his actions.  What was up with that last scene with him?  What did he see?????

The last 100 pages are action-packed and heart breaking.  Heart. Breaking.  No cliffhanger ending, but I still want to read the next book NOW.

Sarah J. Maas = auto-buy.

  1. I'm gonna wait to read this book until the 2nd one comes out. I gotta make sure there's not a love triangle. :/ Especially with what Rhys sees at the end... I'm worried.
    Glad you loved it though!

  2. AUTO-BUYYYYY. I agree - slow start but ended up LOVING it. She's spoiling us with 2 books a year now.

  3. I LOVED this book. Read it from start to finish in one sitting. Didn't even get up to pee. lol I'm so in love with Tamlin. And Lucien. And I'm extremely intrigued with Rhysand. What the heck did he see???? I must know! I heard Sarah said that she may mix up the romance in the next book and I'm freaking out about it. I really don't want a love triangle to form.... Her and Tamlin are obviously meant for each other. Ugh.
