Book: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. Bloomsbury Publishing PLC; 2015. 432 pages.

Sarah J. Maas pens another vivid tale full of action, adventure, humor and romance. This retelling of the classic fairy tale, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, will draw fantasy fans into the story from page one with witty and well written storytelling.

Feyre is a human girl forced to hunt to keep her two sisters and father fed. Game has been scarce this winter forcing Feyre to venture deeper into the forest, closer to the wall that separates human lands from the enchanted lands of the fae. With her family in mind, Feyre must make a difficult choice when she looses an arrow to bring down a large wolf, a decision that puts the wheels of fate into motion, catapulting Feyre into the world of the fae.

In order to spare the lives of her family, sacrifices must be made. Feyre goes willingly with the monstrosity that breaks down their aging cottage door; she is taken to the house of one of the fae and told that she must remain there. Life in the mansion and shining lands of the fae is vastly different from what she knows, causing Feyre to be cautious in opening up to her captor, er, host, Tamlin and his friend Lucien. Seasons pass and Feyre gets closer to Tamlin and he slowly reveals the many dangers that are creeping closer to the lands of spring.
When her world is ripped apart, Feyre realizes too late what her feelings truly are and must embark on a mission to save and rescue Tamlin and the other fae trapped underneath a barren mountain, held captive by a dangerous and malevolent queen. How can one human win against cruel and cunning immortal beings who think of humans as insignificant playthings?
