Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA
Publication date: 05/05/2015
Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses , #1
Age range: 14 - 17 Years
Source: Bought
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 over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever.
Perfect for fans of Kristen Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

I have to tip my hat off to Sarah. She’s an impeccable storyteller. Every book that she’s written has received 5 starred reviews from me and that has to mean something on a short list. Every time I finish reading one of her books, I just sit back in awe. A Court of Thorns and Roses takes you on a surreal adventure that you want to escape into. This book had me sitting on the edge of my seat.

With well-crafted characters and a magical world of mystery and enchantment, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I don’t know how Sarah comes up with her stories; she’s just brilliant! The intricacies in the plot are cleverly written and awe-inspiring. I didn’t want this book to end.

I’ll be waiting on pins and needles for the next installment because it’s more than likely that the journey that lies ahead will be just as treacherous for the cast. If you’re reading this review then listen closely: It’s A.MUST.READ!  I can’t express enough how great this book is, you won’t be disappointed.     

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
