I’m a little late with posting this review. But with the horribleness that is April. I’m glad I’m finally able to start getting my mind off things and it’s all thanks to this gorgeous book!
— BLURB —
Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
— MY REVIEW —
OH. MY. GOLLYYYYYYYY! This is my favourite new fantasy fiction novel! I was hooked from beginning to end. I couldn’t put the book down. Sarah J. Maas has outdone herself. I seriously think this is better than Throne of Glass (not necessarily the whole series because it’s too early to tell but I definitely preferred the storyline over Throne of Glass). It’s bomb-diggity! I love love love it! I can only say good things about it.
If you haven’t read it, do it! Do it now! Don’t wait any longer because A Court Of Mist and Fury will be out in days! DAYS!! I know I can’t wait to get my hands on my copy.
⚠ WARNING WARNING WARNING ⚠
READ AT OWN RISK!
Let’s start off with Feyre. She may just knock off Celaena from Throne of Glass as my new favourite female kickass protagonist. 😉 I love how she’s mortal but yet she can stand on her own two feet against the Fae. She’s a survivor, she’s tough but you also see the girl in her. The thoughts she shares about Tamlin or her family and her fears. She’s just a very relatable character.
Now let’s just discuss Tamlin (aka “Hottie McHigh Fae”). I love how much he tries with Feyre. Right from the beginning when she gets to Spring Court..and I love how she just brushes him off. Such sass! LOL. 😜 But seriously now… the sexual tension between those two was practically leaping off the pages the more in delve deeper into the book.
I don’t usually picture the whole character when reading, just certain features the author has shared like the colour of their hair, their built, etc… so when Feyre mentions Tamlin’s gorgeous green eyes, for some reason that’s all I picture now when he’s talking. Is that weird?
Anyways, back to my review. I’m also loving Lucien. I think he is just the perfect friend. He’s a smartass but in a funny, joking way. Every time he’s in a scene, I always look forward to what he’s about to say or what his reaction is. And although it’s obvious there’s nothing between Feyre and him besides friendship, I like that fact that they have become close (considering how Feyre wasn’t a fan of their kind to begin with).
The overall storyline grabs you and sucks you into their world. You really get to see the difference between the Mortal land to the Faes; the way each side lives because of Feyre. The characters (different types of fae) that Sarah J Maas includes in this book are so intriguing, that I would be exactly like Feyre in wanting to know more about them. I found this book to be an easy read. The pace wasn’t slow at all. I never found any bits to be too boring or dragging on.
But this review is not all sunshine and rainbows. Let’s talk about that b*tch of a Fae Queen herself: Amarantha! I’d like to smack her face! I probably won’t get a chance being mortal and all but still… all the more reason why I like Feyre. She’s mortal but she’s tough and determined and doesn’t need magic or power to stand up against her. I’m so glad Amarantha was splattered in the end! But I can’t help feeling it may not be the end. I mean if she’s really gone, then I don’t doubt the next threat to Feyre, Tamlin and the world of Fae would be worst. As you many know, this is only book one of the trilogy. 😉
Before I end this little rant of a review. I have to mention another character who crept up into my heart and made himself comfy. I’m talking about Rhysand. 😲
I knew there was something about him since that first encounter. My oh my, the way Feyre described him, sounded mm mm mm *drools* Who doesn’t love a bad boy? Who may or may not have some good in him!?? I love Tamlin with Feyre… but I don’t know… I kind of want to see if there are any developments in the coming books between Rhysand and Feyre. Am I the only one? Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s curious! 😜
Before I wrap this super long review up. I just want to say, although I’m giving this book full ratings, I have to mention I was a little unsure of Feyre turning into a High Fae. I get that they did it to save her life but I kind of wanted her to stay mortal for a little longer. I kind of expected her to turn into one of them eventually but I didn’t think it would come to that so quickly into the story. But my opinion on this doesn’t change how I feel about this book. I still LOVE IT!! and highly, highly recommend it! 😁😁
Read my review for the next book in the series!
Hope you’re all well. Happy reading and as always, catch you in my next one! Xo
