I recently finished A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. You may not know it, but I love faeries, so when I heard of a popular series all about faeries and their politics, I was so ready.
Here’s the review I wrote on Goodreads!
I LOVE a good faerie story, so when I heard about A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, I couldn’t wait to burn through the book I was reading at the time to get my faerie fix.
A Court of Thorns and Roses is like Beauty and the Beast with a dash Phantom of the Opera. Feyre is a strong and capable female character, especially in the beginning. The dialogue she has with some of the fae made me grin a few times. She’s a small town girl living in a faerie world and standing her ground for the High Lord loves, and all the sass that goes with it.
I think, of all the faeries, though Tamlin is meant to be the love interest, Lucien and Rhysand are my favorites. They weren’t so restrained by their status–and a curse–like Tamlin was, which gave them more room to show their personalities.
The third act got a little slow for me, but that didn’t stop me from ordering A Court of Mist and Fury as soon as I reached the last page. I have high hopes for the next books in this series and I would definitely recommend giving it a read.
If you love a story about faeries like I do, definitely pick this up. I’ve heard the series has its ups and downs, and I can see evidence of that in the first book, but I’m more than ready to read on and find out more about the world of Prythian and all the messes Feyre and the High Fae get into.
The next book of the series, A Court of Mist and Fury, is on order, but while I wait, I’m reading Magic of Wind and Mist by Cassandra Rose Clarke. I’ve been looking forward to this book for almost five years! Stay tuned to see if it lives up to my hopes for it!
