My review for A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, 5/5 stars.
I’ve heard so much about this series, I’ve been wanting to read it for ages! So I was really pleased to get a copy from NetGalley. Did it live up to the hype?
Yes! The writing is enchanting, from the moment we first meet Feyre out hunting in the woods, desperately trying to keep her poverty-stricken family alive. The first chapters ease you into the story, then the pace picks up about a third of the way through. But it is so well written that you find yourself hooked from the beginning.
I also loved the fact that the Fae are as flawed as humans, if not more so. Every character has parts you like, others that annoy, and some that you hate, and this add a deep richness to the overall story.
There is a blight over their realm that is threatening the existence of everyone, Fae and humans alike, and Feyre believes she can help. But nothing is as it seems, and there is a harsh price to pay for all involved.
This is a wonderful start to the series, and I can’t wait to read the next one! Highly recommend.
