Can we talk about how gorgeous this book photographs? I will start of by saying this… Are you ready?
I have not read The Throne Of Glass series.. I know… I’ll ya’ll time to let that sink in.
So this was my first time reading a Sarah J. Maas book and I was not disappointed. I am a huge Beauty and The Beast fan ( Did you all see the trailer?!?!) and this re-telling was what I have started calling the big girl Beauty and The Beast. We are not in Disney anymore!
I have not read anything fantasy wise that focuses on the Fae. So I didn’t know what to expect.
We meet Feyre ( pronounced Fay-ruh). She does what she can for her family and it was irritating to see how everyone relied solely on her and hardly pitched in. Nesta, Feyre’s older sister annoyed me the most.
Feyre kills something and a beast who is named Tamlin comes to take her away as a replacement. There the two begin to fall for the other. Then of course there is a villain that is going to Squash their dreams. Tamlin is High Fae and is also a High Lord. Then Feyre has to save her love from the clutches of An evil “Queen”.
I loved it. I loved the different character personalities. Tamlin is sweet and trying to court a stubborn human who is the key to breaking the curse he has been under.
It does have some steamy scenes, to warn you. So if you don’t like that kind of content, this book you may want to sit out.
I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads and I am currently reading book two! And after I finished I may need to start The Throne Of Glass series.
Have you read this book? What were your thoughts? Let me know!
Till next time
