Summary

When Feyre kills a wolf, a beastlike creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a magical land, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal. 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 shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it....

Does the book justice

I devoured this audio book as quickly as the paperback!
Starts off as an interesting adaption of beauty and the beast but ends up as a whole other creature. ;)

Wonderfully addictive!

I adored this book and by the final chapters was unable to stop listening (it’s currently 1am and I’ve just finished it). I think what made this audiobook so special was the narration. Yes, the story was fantastic but the narrator became the characters and each held a distinct voice. I loved it and can’t recommend A Court of Thorns and Roses highly enough!

Cool, but a bit boring

this book is a must read to continue with book 2 and 3 in the series, but it's easily the least fun read. So don't get discouraged if you didn't like this one, book 2 is one of the best reads I had in a while!

taken into another world

I have listened to this well over a dozen times.
when ever I'm struggling with a different book, I always come back to this one.
it's the first of a fantastic series and a great introduction into this fantasy world.
I've even bought extra copies of the series to give as gifts and got merchandise and other books from this author. I can not be parted with it well over a year later.

Absolutely amazing!!!

The story is perfect and I got fully into in that I was actually ready to scream to the characters. Brilliantly narrated and wonderful, can't wait to move to the next book.

Loved the whole series!

I read the whole series back to back and then started reading this first book again immediately, as many parts of this book had a deeper meaning when I new the rest of the story. I can't remember ever doing that before. If you love fantasy fiction & romance you won't be disappointed with this book and if you like this it just gets better & better in the next!

Slow -at times boring but picks up pace later.

Beautiful descriptions though. I love the idea and the end..
The main character seems a bit dumb sometimes - I solved the riddle right away. But it's nice that she's not stressing to seem smarter or better than she is. They are accepting of who they are and maneges to relax even after facing horror. Makes me feel less stressed.

A interesting reimagining of a classic story

While creative in impressing ways, the heroin felt a tad too passive and powerless most of the time.

Great story

If you like Beauty and the Beast, fae lore and lovestories, this is a great book. I have already bought the next book in the series.

The best of authors that readers could wish for!

There is no limit to the wonder that is Sarah J. Maas. I was so invested in the story and characters that she had me crying for them by Chapter 10... And I never saw that twist coming at the end! She could have easily drawn the challenges out into a book each I suppose, but she never lets us down. As always, she gives us complete satisfaction and closure, and still manages to continue a series.
