Pure and completely engaging escapism in the form of high fantasy. Feyre; stubbon, independent and loving has taught herself how to provide for her impoverished family, however on a winters day, one arrow changes her life forever. The world in which Feyre finds herself is a biting fusion of folk and fairy tale, the author takes your imagination on a breathtaking and on occasion chillingly wild ride. This has an otherworldly hint of a ‘Twilight’ series feel to it, however the romance has a decided edge and the ferocity of the violence is more explicit and therefore suited to an older reader. A gloriously spiky and feisty tale, full of the weird and wonderful, the second in the series will be awaited with bated breath. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Feyre's survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill - the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price ... Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre's presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

The start of a sensational romantic fantasy trilogy by the bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series.
