Thanks to Netgalley for a free ARC of the book.
I really really love Sarah J Mass. The way she weaves stories and creates new worlds through her words is just brilliant. After reading Throne of glass series, I decided that if George R R Martin was king of fantasy, then Sarah J Mass was the queen.
And this book… it just proves my point.
Feyre, lives with her sisters Nesta, Elain who are selfish bitches in the start… and her father who is crippled. So the responsibility to take care of everything falls on her shoulders. And she does everything she can just for the promise made to her dying mother. She even puts up with their tantrums and bitchiness. Brave? Definitely. So, things go wrong one day while hunting.
And turns out she has to spend rest of her life in Prythian, the place where faeries live. Don’t be fooled. These aren’t those nice faeries. Atleast that’s what she believes.
Lucien, even though a prick sometimes, grows on you. The character is just likeable and so is Tamlin but Rhysand is a different thing entirely. You’d probably hate him in the start like I did. But… At least all of them are HOT.
Feyre is blending in and trying to live in Prythian. But things don’t always go as planned. She demands answers, seeks for knowledge of this unknown world. She comes across dangerous things and still doesn’t stop.
The big revelation towards the end blew my mind. And it’s just so amazing.
“Be glad of your human heart, Feyre. Pity those who don’t feel anything at all. “
Well this book had me feeling a lot of things. Yearning being one of them. I’ve been waiting for Queen of Shadows for so long and it seemed like this book would fill the gap in the mean time. It did a lot more than that. It ripped the gash even more. Now I have to wait for Queen of Shadows and The sequel for A court of thorns and roses. Because I just can’t get enough of Sarah J Mass. She makes the characters so fascinating and the story so wonderful, you just dive into the book and loose yourself completely.
I gave this book the five stars that it deserved.
Buy the book first and thank me later.
