A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas (Book Review #235)

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

(Finished Reading: 04/05/19

My 27th book this year)

Feyre and her family were used to riches and the good life. Their lives have been turned upside down now that they are poor. Feyre has taken on full responsibility for looking after her father and sisters. She must find a way to survive, to hunt, to kill.

One day out hunting, she kills a big wolf. But her biggest mistake was in breaking the treaty. She killed a fae. Her life now belongs to their world.

Once again her life has been flipped over. She sees things, hears things, fears things. But then she learns things, begins to see the beauty of the fae ways, lives the way they do, she even learns to love.

But there is a curse that has damned them all. Feyre unknowingly holds the answer. She must find a way to save the one she loves and to break the curse and to free them all.


I loved this book. But found the mature content absolutely unnecessary, therefore spoilt the story a bit.

I love how two worlds can come together. I love how there is good and evil in everything, everyone and I love the sacrifices people can make out of love.

The characters were great. I enjoyed seeing Feyre develop, I like Tamlin the High Lord, I loved Lucien’s devious ways. I adored Rhysand and his cunning nature. There was so much beauty and destruction in this book. So much goodness and darkness. The storyline was fun.

I would definitely recommend this book to other readers who enjoy fairy tales. I am very much looking forward to book two of this series.
