A Court of Thorns and Roses

by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1) - Sarah J. Maas 8.04   90

When 19-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 over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it... or doom Tamlin — and his world — forever.

This story has three parts. Life before, life at the Manor, and life Under the Mountain. It would also be prudent of me to say I didn't think I'd like this book after the first few chapters. Much like when I started The Iron King series by Julie Kagawa, and having read Throne of Glass series from the very beginning, it's always a little strange to read something new from a writer you like. I didn't think I'd like this because I didn't think I was young enough to enjoy it.

"A Court of Thorns and Roses" - what a wonderful title! - is the first part of a trilogy that is truly unique. People who've read the "Throne of Glass" series by Maas might be a little surprised with the fact that ACOTAR, as this book is also known, seems to be written for a slightly older age group. It's really obvious when you're reading it. That's something I, personally, didn't think was so interesting about the novel, which made for the first 100 and last 100 pages really good. The middle was a little more 'basic', as far as that's possible. Nevertheless, there are some really good pieces in the novel and it's worth the read.
