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.
I loved this book so much! Seriously, what took me so long to get into this series?! I know people have a lot of mixed feelings about this book, but I absolutely loved it.
I already read A Court of Mist and Fury – the second book on the A Court of Thorns and Roses series – so it’s hard to write a review without thinking about what happened next, but I’ll try my best! The truth is that when I first read this book I loved it with all my heart, and then I read the second book and my feelings for this one were compromised. I know most of the people who read the series and loved it felt the same way.
The best things about this book are the plot itself and the writing. When I first read this book, I fell in love with the romance. Feyre and Tamlin were just meant to be, and I was cheering for them all the way. Not only the romance was great, but the characters were interesting and captivating too. Feyre is an amazing main character. I really love strong main characters and Feyre is exactly that. Even though she’s afraid and she feels weak, she always fights and tries her best in every situation.
Now, the writing… is out of this world. The book is so descriptive and all the scenes made me want to keep reading. I wasn’t bored a single time, but the book was so big I had to read it slowly – because, let’s be honest, it was a normal size book I know I would have read it in one sitting.
Like I said, I already read the first two books, and I’m currently on the third one right now – I really wanted to write the reviews first, but I’m addicted to the story! I think it’s very worth it if you like fantasy books, complex magical stories and a good dose of romance!
