Synopsis

 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!

***Gladys #NerdGirlOfficial Review***
 Where shall I begin… This is the first book I have read by Sarah Maas and quite honestly I read it 2 times and then went back again to place post it notes on my favorite parts of the book. My poor ARC is no longer pristine and I keep it with me for easy retrieval.The world she created is beautifully cruel and exquisite. You can tell that Sarah Maas poured her heart in building a new world built from a childhood fairy tale with strong main characters. Her attention to detail is magnificent. I don’t think I can’t put into words the emotions that fluttered around my being while I read it. I was captivated.

Fayre loves her family, provides for them because she has a sense of duty. But her DUTY causes her to be taken away to a land of legends by a Beast. She made a promise to her mother to take care of her family, so she needs a way back! The one thing that stops her is Tamlin. (Sigh ~ Tamlin)

Fans of Melissa Marrs Wicked Lively series and Richelle Meads Storm Born Series will fall head over sword in love with this book. You will ADORE this book, with all the blood, gore, and no excuses. BUT the brutality was just as beautiful as the reason for it.

No emotion for me was left unturned. It touched me in every bone in my body. My eyes tired, my heart sore from aching and my mind enthralled by Sarah J Maas’s word play. I was burdened with piling dishes and a mountain of laundry when I finished but I didn’t care. Those were the best 2 days I spent reading!!

I will be reading more from this talented author! She officially has sealed her fate as an author I fangirl over!!
