Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses

Written by Tim

"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.

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.
