Rambling Down the Book Hole (Dec '15) - A Court of Thorns and Roses Review


Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Synopsis:

A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.

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.

***MY REVIEW***

5 out of 5 stars

This book. THIS BOOK. I don't think there's a word strong enough to describe how much I really loved this book. It was absolutely fantastic. Once again Sarah J. Mass has written a phenomenal fantasy novel that has made me feel all the things and now I don't know what to do with my life now that I'm done.

Everything about this book was basically perfect. It was the type of book that reminds me that while I might have been reading more contemporary books lately that the fantasy genre will always be my comfort genre and for good reason. I was completely captivated by Feyre's story. The way she went from being someone of no importance to the only hope that the High Fae had of breaking free from the control of Amarantha had me on the edge of my seat. And don't get me started on the epic love story that unfolded between Feyre and Tamlin. It was absolutely beautiful and from the moment that Tamlin comes for Feyre until the very end their interactions made me all giddy and got my heart racing.

The only thing this book was lacking was some more awesome female characters. Aside from Feyre and Amarantha all the major players in the novel where male. That's not to say I didn't the guys. Tamlin, Lucien, and Rhysand all managed to worm there way into my heart. I loved them all!

Overall, I loved this book with every fiber of my soul! It was absolutely amazing! But that is not all that surprising since this is the author who also gave us Throne of Glass!
