Review of A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Mass

Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses 

Series: Court of Thorns and Roses Series Book 1

Author: Sarah J. Mass 

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA

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.

I am writing this review right after finishing this book and let me tell you, I still have goose bumps from it. This is by far the best book that I have read this year and it is officially in my top 10. The development of the story is what really blew my mind. In my opinion, you can tell that the author really took her time with creating the development of this story.

From the moment you start this book, all the way to the last sentence you are enticed in this world. The book showed not only a grand love story but in some ways as I was reading it, it reminds me of ‘The Hunger Games’ due to the need for survival and the main character finding herself and what she wants.

Rating: I am giving this book a 5 out of 5 stars. If I could go above a 5 I would! This is the first book to the trilogy and if you like something that is fantasy and a beautifully retold version of Beauty and the Beast then you will want to pick this book up. The way the author describes not only the magic but the way the characters looked was superbly done. You will not be disappointed in picking this book up.
