A Court of Thorns and Roses Review

Thorns and Roses

Title: A Court of Thorns and Roses

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Flap Copy:

“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.”

Welp, what can I say? This is definitely a book for older teen readers. But it was soooo good. Beauty and the Beast  meets Cupid and Pysche. I loved the give and take between Feyre and several of the characters. Maas is brilliant when it comes to creating tension and witty dialogue.

The book is on odd size though so it looks slim but it is actually a good size book. And I am not a fan of the jacket itself but Maas seems to be doing a good job with illustrated books for YA.

I would definitely acquire this.
