Synopsis: 
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.

Rating: 5/5

My Review:

I LOVED THIS BOOK!! If I wasn't in such a reading slump, I would've read this a lot faster than what I did. But I really loved this one, and I cannot wait for the next book. I haven't read a fantasy book in a while, I don't think, and I loved this world that Sarah J. Maas created. This is the first book I read of hers as I've heard good things about her books, and now I know why! She's an amazing writer, and I want to read all of her books now.

The premise of the story is that while Feyre is out hunting in the woods to provide food for her family, she kills a faerie and because of this, she must now live in the land of Prythian as part of a treaty, she took a life so the High Lord will take hers and do with it as he sees fit. Luckily the High Lord, Tamlin, just allows her to live freely on his lands.

First off, I really loved Feyre as the main character. I love how strong she was throughout everything. To see her go from poverty and being the sole provider for her family, to being taken to this world that she's only heard of and to truly learn about faeries and how they live. Seeing how her and Tamlin's story develops from Feyre being defensive and hating him, to slowly growing to like and eventually love him was amazing and so well written, it was beautiful. Tamlin as a character is very nice and gentle, and he just wants to care for and take care of Feyre which was very sweet. I loved Tamlin so very much, how can you not!! As well as the supporting characters as well, so well written and I really loved them, like Lucien and Alis, and even Rhysand. (Although I'm a little wary of Rhysand for right now! I will just say that I'm Team Tamlin for now with this book, I'll leave it at that.) Also Amarantha was an excellent villain, you will love to hate her!

So if you haven't read this book, please pick it up! And if you have read it, let me know your thoughts on the book.
