BOOK REVIEW: A Court of Thorns and Roses By Sarah J. Maas

Book name: A Court of Thorns and Roses
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Summary: 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.

Review: I’ll start off by saying what an immense ride I've just been on while reading this book. Sarah j Maas has a knack for the most enticing atmospheric writing. I haven't come across anything like this, such a refreshing read. I haven’t felt this way about a fantasy series since reading Julie Kagawa’s highly popular fey series.

A girl trying to look after her family while stuck in server poverty.... Kills a wolf to sell his skin, only to find out he's part of an enchanted court in her enemy's Kingdom and they want payback in the most shocking, epic twist I did not see coming! 

My love for masquerade masks used in this novel was spectacular. An interesting twist to mask wearing. It'll make you feel very left out that you aren't wearing one while reading this book.

Get ready for a book that will keep you glued to your chair for hours on end; I was captured right from the beginning. I believe the way that Sarah writes is somewhat compelling, the detailed descriptions that give a reader enough to know what everything looks like and what's going on, but at the same time it leaves room for a readers imagination to wander in their own direction. What I loved and hated about this book is that many of the characters had you on edge. As a reader you're left unsure of who to trust, but a few of them have you feeling completely different towards them.

Each and every character has their own individuality and it is portrayed amazingly through the chapters. Feyre is a very strong-minded girl who people can definitely relate to through out the novel. Her relationship with Tamlin is very complicated but yet works and its so captivating.

This novel truly sucks you in and has you reading till all hours of the morning. Don't be surprised if you can't put it down. I recommend this book to anyone. This cleverly written novel is beautiful, touching, action packed and romantic. I was heartbroken when it was over.
