Description

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.

The start of a sensational romantic fantasy trilogy by the bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series.

Review ***SPOILERS***

Hooray for the awesome imagination of Sarah J Maas!

I loved this book from start to finish. It has everything you could possibly want in a story. A brilliantly strong love story, humour, action, mystery and magic!

Feyre is the youngest of her poverty stricken family and the one who keeps them all alive. After promising her mother on her death bed that she would take care of her sisters, that is exactly how she spends her days, begging and hunting for food, dreaming of a day when she can live out her life with her father in peace.

What she gets is something infinitely more terrorising but wholeheartedly better than she could ever have imagined.

Characters were very well written, each one had a back story. I found myself wanting to learn more of Rhysand. I just know he has an amazing past and feel that he has a connection with Feyre, perhaps something that could threaten Tamlin.

Amarantha was evil on a whole other level, I just love a good bad guy!

I love the new world Sarah has introduced us to, so utterly imaginative. Sarah J Maas always writes with such grace, it truly is a pleasure to read her amazing stories.
