Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
I’ve really enjoyed all of the Sarah J. Maas books I’ve read before, so I decided I might as well try out A Court of Thorns and Roses. I bought this book a year or two ago but ended up listening to the audiobook while I was at work. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy it. At all, really.
I had a lot of problems with this book, but I’m going to try to keep this review short and as non-ranty as possible because I know that a lot of people love this series and I don’t want to make them sad.
The first problem I had was that nothing that happens makes sense. I mean, I guess things are sort of explained at the end, but Feyre literally kills a fae and then she’s just whisked away to a life of luxury as “punishment.” I mean… okay?
The second problem I had was that Feyre needs to go see a gastroenterologist because all she ever does is throw up or get watery bowels and I got really sick of hearing about it.
The third problem I had was that I couldn’t even tell if Rhysand or Tamlin was supposed to be the love interest because Feyre seemed equally obsessed with them.
I’m not going to lie, I’ll probably read the next book in the series. I’m just not sure if it’ll be any time soon.
