4 stars

“Don’t feel bad for one moment about doing what brings you joy.” 

I was very nervous about starting this series, there is so much love and hype online that it is rather intimidating. But oh boy! A Court of Thorns and Roses is amazing. The world is so rich and vibrant, Sarah’s world building is fantastic I could imagine the Spring Court so vividly.

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” – Summary from Goodreads.

“I was as unburdened as a piece of dandelion fluff, and he was the wind that stirred me about the world.”
