A Court of Thorns and Roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses follows Feyre, a young woman who cares for her family until she kills a wolf (fae) and is captured by a beast who turns out to be an incredibly handsome but moody/grumpy fae named Tamlin. As she goes through her new life in the Spring Court where Tamlin is the High Lord and rules, she begins to fall for Tamlin while also realizing things around Spring Court are a bit off – something isn’t right. The court is mostly empty, the people/fae are reserved, and Tamlin and Lucien seem to be hiding something, but Feyre can’t quite figure it out. Regardless, romance blossoms between Feyre and Tamlin, a version of friendship grows with Lucien, and happiness buds within Feyre for the first time in a long time.

Unfortunately, problems grow for Tamlin and the Spring Court, and she must figure out both what she can do to help and what she is truly feeling for Tamlin before it is too late.

This was my first dip into fantasy-romance books and it ended with me diving full force into the deep end. I could not put it down, it was fantastic!

I really enjoyed the strong, stubborn, feisty FMC Feyre, she was great! I loved going along with her through her journey. She started off fighting for survival and feeling like life was mostly empty of everything except her vow to take care of the family, then suddenly one hunting trip gone sideways and she is whisked away to the fae world of the Spring Court with a grumpy High Lord who can’t decide if he wants to woo her or not, but seems to be giving it a try. As she settles in (not without must distrust, because what kind of FMC would she be if she trusted the handsome fae right away?), she begins to see more of Tamlin, Lucien, and the Spring Court and we see Feyre start to come out of her fight for survival and begin to live and enjoy life bit by bit. Thank god for that because damn was her life hard as hell before. I won’t give it all away because it truly is a good read, but things get strange, weird, and dangerous and our feisty FMC has to make it through and fight for what she wants.

As far as Prythian goes, Sarah J. Maas did a great job with world building and descriptions of everything, I felt like I was in the Spring Court and could visualize it perfectly, as if I was part of the book itself and exploring Spring Court right alongside Feyre. The world building left me with such a vivid image of each location that months later I can still recall exactly what it looked like to me the first time I read it.

Reading A Court of Thorns & Roses by Sarah J. Maas opened me up to a whole world of books I never considered and I am so glad I gave it a chance. If you like world building, fae, heated romance, strong FMC, and general fantasy, this is a must-read.

Worth a re-read for sure!
