The sexy, action-packed first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Court of Thorns and Roses series from Sarah J. Maas.
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.
At least, he's not a beast all the time.
As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever.
From bestselling author Sarah J. Maas comes a seductive, breathtaking book that blends romance, adventure, and faerie lore into an unforgettable read.

I love these books! The book starts off slowly because she has to explain the history of prythian and Feyre, but a little less than halfway through it is impossible to put down. It is the perfect YA novel. I’m curious to see what happens in ACOMAF. So many twists and turns. Love it ! 55
Honestly out of words on how much I love this series. The characters development and the plot itself is out of this world. Literally. love it too much to stop ever thinking about it :( 55
I started and stopped this book multiple times before finishing it. The first half of the book was difficult to get through because it felt like there was no plot…no end game. I had no clue where the story was going and got sick of it. I finally talked to to some other fans of the series and they reassured me that it got better and to keep going. I’m glad I listened. The last part of the book was mind blowing. The second book is wonderful too. 45
It was really good I read it in a day. 55
This should be considered a Young Adult series 35
I loved this series! The characters and their relationships are deep and intriguing. I read all 4 books in the series (currently) in 4 days, and can’t wait for the next installment! 55
Adolescent thought personified. After 9 chapters I put it down ... the main character feels tragically wronged by every other character but no real reason is given. I’m eager to meet an author halfway to “suspend disbelief” and enmesh myself in the tapestry of their story, but the author never gave me any purchase in her world. 15
Honestly I was in a total reading slump before this book. I never really read fantasy but this book opened up my love for a whole new genre. Overall it was absolutely amazing. Maas builds the plot and there’s not obvious foreshadowing and it legitimately makes you gasp when it unravels. All her books hit there mark and a court of thorns and roses is no exception. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I highly recommend any of her works especially this one. 55
I just finished this book so I’m still in that twilight-zone between stunned awe and a voracious need to devour the next book. I burned through this book quickly, absolutely couldn’t put it down, practically every chapter was a cliff-hanger making me want more. I can’t believe how easily this author builds and maintains suspense, I absolutely don’t mean the writing is simple by any measure but it’s so concise. I never felt bored in the middle of a paragraph or the need to glaze over the ‘character’s mind wandering’ that inadvertently works its way into every book. Amazing. Loved it. Happily addicted. 55
