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 grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
Dayum… If you though Throne of Glass is good, read this. It will blow your mind. Guess who just joined the ACOTAR Fandom?
First of all, the world of Prythian that Sarah has created is fabulous. The details make it so entrancing – the Seasonal courts, the Night Court, the Court of Dreams, Under the Mountain, the changing landscapes, the courtrooms and High Fae, the different creatures – Prythian is a magical place to live in and a magical place to read about.
This series was captivating. There’s only two books that have been released as of now, and book 3, A Court of Wings and Ruin is releasing soon, and I just can’t wait. I can’t help but compare this to TOG (Throne of Glass), and I found this to be way more relatable and riveting.
Feyre is an amazing protagonist (I know her name is supposed to be pronounced ‘fey-ruh’, but I like to say it as ‘fire’ because I think it suits her personality). She’s a wild spirit, and her monologue is so relatable it isn’t even funny.
Nothing is what it seems, and the different relationships between people are brought out quite realistically. The ending of book 2 – daym! Cliffy much? It’s only the second book out of a long series, but there’s already so much that has happened with regards to the series plot. This was a rollercoaster to read, and I have a feeling it’s just going to keep getting better.
