Author: Sarah J Maas
Page Number: 415 Pages
Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars
I just finished ACOTAR and wow…. I loved it! I admit I was a bit skeptical of this book at first because I didn’t like Throne of Glass which is by the same author. This book proved me wrong! I found myself invested in it and I couldn’t put the book down. A few things bothered me in this book but overall I found ACOTAR to be amazing and am DYING to read the next book!
Also was it only me that was reminded of Katniss and the Hunger Games in the beginning? Both Feyre and Katniss loved bow and arrows, set snares and hunted to provide food for their family’s table. It was also said that Isaac set snares while Feyre hunted with her arrows. I couldn’t help but laugh at this! Feyre and Isaac were the dollar tree version of Katniss and Gale.
Synopsis: Nineteen year old Feyre has been hunting for years to feed the mouths of her family. One day she brings back a wolf from her hunt. Little did she know that this wolf was a friend to a dangerous and powerful Fae. Demanding retribution for his dead friend, Feyre is dragged into Prythian, the land of the Fae. Over time Feyre comes to love her captor, Tamlin and is willing to do anything for him. Her love is soon put on a test as a deadly enemy arises.
“‘My father once told me that I should let my sister imagine a better life- a better world. And I told him that there was no such thing.’ [...] ‘I never understood-because I couldn’t...couldn’t believe that it was even possible.’ I swallowed, lowering my hand. ‘Until now.’
His throat bobbed. His kiss that time was deep and thorough, unhurried and intent. [...] It was the happiest moment of my life” (Maas 230).
What I didn’t like about this book:
What I did like:
“Because loving Tamlin was the only thing I had left, the only thing I couldn’t sacrifice” (Maas 401).
“He smiled at me still, broadly and without restraint or hesitation. Isaac had never smiled at me like that. Isaac had never made my breath catch, just a little bit.”
“A Court of Thorn and Roses” by Sarah J Maas is a really good book! I would highly recommend ACOTAR for Beauty and the Beast lovers! I’m excited to see what ACOMAF, the second book, brings!
