Review by: Chantelle, LCA Intern for Library HQ
Synopsis: The skin of a wolf would bring enough gold to feed her sisters for a month. But the life of a magical creature comes at a hefty price, and Feyre has just murdered the wrong wolf…
Taken captive by a High Fae lord, Ferye learns that her masked captor is hiding even more than what his piercing gaze suggests. As her feelings for Tamlin burn like a wildfire, a shadow is falling across the land. If Feyre cannot fight it, she will lose everything.
Review: In a world ruled by magic, there is a great divide between the Humans and the Magical Beings.
There’s a border protecting the Humans from the “evil next door”. But times are changing and a dark presence is looming over the lands, infecting everyone in its path. Humans are constantly warned against these dark, sordid beings who play with magic as freely as toddlers would play with toys. So when Feyre finds herself being taken from her home, she’s pretty much certain this is the end for her.
But what if it’s not the end but only the beginning? The start of a much better life. The birth of a new Feyre.
Only problem? There’s a wicked enemy out there who threatens to finish Feyre and everyone around her.
A Court Of Thorns And Roses, is a series written by Sarah J. Mass. If you’re looking to escape into a realm of magic and beautiful lands with impossibly handsome men and women, waste no time checking it out.
Another exciting new series by Sarah J.Mass is the Crescent City series which I reviewed previously. You can check out the review here.
