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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The best romantic fantasy series aren’t just about heroes and villains—they’re about actions and consequences. The first book in Sarah J. Maas’ sexy Court of Thorns and Roses fantasy series begins with 19-year-old Feyre Archeron hunting in the woods one frigid winter day when she kills what she thinks is a wolf, but turns out to be a faerie. Exiled to the faerie world as punishment, Feyre is surprised to discover that her new home is full of dark beauty—especially if you count Tamlin, the extremely hot High Lord. Maas blends themes from classic tales like “Beauty and the Beast” into a story of steamy romance and high-stakes drama. We fell in love with Maas’ gorgeous and mysterious world and her sensual heroine who discovers she may have a major role to play in stopping the darkness that looms over both her own kingdom and the gorgeous Tamlin. As soon as we wolfed this fantastical adventure down, we were ready for the sequel.

Lots of Issues
I’m surprised at how unskilled the writing is here, given Maas’s popularity. I’ve read indie fantasy authors with much better writing chops. The sentences are clunky, and loose; the descriptions mediocre, and the protagonist is very 2D. It reads like something a talented 10th grader might have come up with. That said, the story is amusing. I purchased all books at once on discount and hope I can get through them. But so far, the first one is difficult to keep reading.
