A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas Book Summary

The sexy, action-packed first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Court of Thorns and Roses series from Sarah J. Maas.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.

At least, he's not a beast all the time.

As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever.

From bestselling author Sarah J. Maas comes a seductive, breathtaking book that blends romance, adventure, and faerie lore into an unforgettable read.

A Court of Thorns and Roses (Sarah J. Maas) Book Reviews

Derivative/plagiarism?The story was decent. The characters and some situations were plucked out of other series, such as Hunger Games, Twilight, and Harry Potter, to name a few. However, the BIGGEST offense is what and how much was stolen from Anne Bishop's Black Jewels series: Daemon SaDi and Dorothea SaDiablo basically showed up in this book with new names of Rhysand and Amaranth. I could go on with pages of other examples. I'm very surprised I havent read this type of feedback in the other comments, unless those were suppressed..Score: 2/5

Absolutely Entranced!!I read 40 chapters in 10 hours. I just couldn’t put this book down. The details are stunning. The plot, the characters, the journey it’s all amazingly enticing! I love this book can’t wait to continue reading the rest of the book and the series!.Score: 5/5

HeroExcellent read I couldn’t put down. How true hero leadership should be portrayed..Score: 5/5

YES YESOkay so i’m reading the comments and a lot of people think that she is weak and fragile, blah blah blah. BUT this is the first book and Feyre is the type of heroine who finds herself throughout the series so although she may be weak and stuff now she will not be. so yeah take a chance on this book. i really liked it. it has a lot of romance in there too. if you likes the shatter me series and the cruel prince series by holly black you will like this too! and yes it may start a little slow and kinda go fast at the same time for the first book but that’s just because the author had to set the stage you know? but once you get going you can’t put it down. one of my fav romance/fantasy book series out their for teens and young adults. or anyone really! but anyways LOVE IT. FEYRE IS MY QUEEN!.Score: 5/5

Not enough time in the dayLiterally had to make this my reward to get real life stuff done. Awesome book!.Score: 5/5

Lots of IssuesI’m surprised at how unskilled the writing is here, given Maas’s popularity. I’ve read indie fantasy authors with much better writing chops. The sentences are clunky, and loose; the descriptions mediocre, and the protagonist is very 2D. It reads like something a talented 10th grader might have come up with. That said, the story is amusing. I purchased all books at once on discount and hope I can get through them. But so far, the first one is difficult to keep reading..Score: 3/5

A must readTruthfully, I had just come down off a FBAA/AKOFAF hangover but needed more. I had been seeing this series everywhere and just took my time looking at different reviews and the most consistent one I read was that the first book was slow. While I admit it is slow, the reason for it is to set up the story, the setting, everything. It’s a beautiful kind of slow that enchants your mind and makes you want to know more. Maas writes in a way that tells you exactly what she sees when she created this universe of high lords, faeries, and mortals. I loved this book and I’m so excited to read the next few..Score: 5/5

Excellent: So glad I read thisExcellent book. The best way to describe this book is a combination of elements similar to that of: The Hunger Games The Chronicles of Narnia Beauty and the Beast Game of Thrones And perhaps Vampire Diaries. It was such a fulfilling read. You feel along side of the characters. It is emotional, gory, romantic, suspenseful and sexy. Someone in an earlier review mentioned it starting slow. That is accurate but trust the pacing because it will continue to build and the action will eventually leave you breathless. Very highly recommend!.Score: 5/5

Slow startPretty good. Starts slow and the relationship between the main characters really isn’t built well. It kinda jumps from point A to point Z with little to no build up. However, the overall story is interesting and I will try book 2..Score: 4/5

My favorite fantasy seriesFae have always been my favorite kind of fantasy creature, and yet I feel like no one ever makes stories about them. Sarah J Maas must have the same love of fae/fairies as I do! This series has become my favorite fantasy series out of all the ones I’ve read. I love the characters, I love Maas’s writing, and I love how she brings some bits of classic fables into this series. There’s also steamy romance, though the second book in this series has the best romance scenes. I also read her Throne of Glass series, but I like this one better..Score: 5/5

The. Best. SeriesJust amazing. A must read. I’m on my fourth time reading it and will probably continue rereading it forever. It’s got everything and the most epic love story but not utterly predictable. Such an awesome storyline.Score: 5/5

Enthralling, yet strikingly similarLoved the intrigue, story development, and characters. Yet I couldn’t shake the similarities to ‘Beauty and the Beast’. It was just too much of a coincidence to ignore, yet I read it chapter by chapter...and enjoyed it regardless..Score: 4/5

5 MILLION / 5This . Book . Is . Phenomenal!!!!!! I stayed up til 2AM finishing this one & flew through about 75% of it from 8PM-2AM. It is literally flawless in my opinion. The author’s storytelling is absolutely exquisite & masterful — it’s one of those books that you EXPERIENCE. Think “Game of Thrones” meets “Beauty & The Beast”…but better. God, I loved this one. I’d give it a million stars & I CANNOT WAIT to read the rest of the series!!.Score: 5/5

Unoriginal female leadJust started this book and so far I’m a little disappointed. The main character is strong but she doesn’t speak her mind. Her family treats her horribly but she doesn’t stand up for herself. And of course she’s a plain brunette with the personality of a stick. Which is how every young woman is written in every YA book. It’s so gross to read woman this way, so boring and demeaning. She should have been written like Alina from the Shadow and Bone series. Now that’s a good female lead! She’s strong and speaks her mind..Score: 3/5

Beauty and the best for adultsGood story, just too much for one book. The love story is interesting enough to make it worth a read, the action is very raw and descriptive. I will definitely read the other books, but probably won’t be a book on my nightstand.Score: 4/5

Rushed, but rewardingThe first half was a bit slow. It was hard to grasp with the characters, as their intentions weren’t clear. There were initially many holes in the story. However, the last half revealed everything I was at first confused about. It did feel rushed towards the end, since many answers were just laid out flat for you. But I would say the story wove together quite beautifully in the end. Lots of character arcs to look out for!.Score: 4/5

Slow, but worth the readLoved it..Score: 5/5

First person but worth itSo I personally hate first person POV’s. Personally the man characters in the books I’ve read previously in first person just lean on that story telling devise way too much, My friend kept telling me how amazing this series was and how I just needed to push through the first few chapters and then I’d get it..... and you know what, this book lives up to the hype. If you’re like me and hate first person, just push through and by the end of the sample you’ll become invested..Score: 5/5

Good plot, but rushed and confusingI read a lot of the reviews to see if this book was worth $14. And this it the truth, the books plot is good, but it’s rushed. She falls in love too quickly and without explanation, the book suggest time passes but dose a horrible job telling us what happened in the months and weeks that pass.This book should have almost been two books, there’s a lot she doesn’t unpack which left me personally confused. It dose get a lot better past the half way point. Iv heard this series has a rough book 1 but the writing gets better. I will be buying the 2nd book..Score: 3/5

Nothing Is What It Seems!This book, along with the rest of the series, is not what it seems to be. What appears to be a slow burn fantasy romance novel unravels into a series of dark twists and turns that has you at the edge of your seat wondering what’s going to happen next. Please check trigger warnings as you dive deeper into this series, and expect the most unexpected from every character along the way. Nothing is what it seems! I wish I could read this book series for the first time all over again..Score: 5/5

Mixed FeelingsACOTAR seems like a retelling of the movie not the OG story which made it really shallow. The plot starts slow and the curse was so specific/convenient that it gave Chosen One vibes. While Feyre is not a dumb character, the author makes excuses for her to make dumb decisions to further the plot. The “beast”, Tamlin, is painfully cliche (“you’re not your father”). The villain is horribly cartoonish. Rhysand would have made an awesome villain, but his relationship with Feyre was problematic especially since it looks like he’s a potential love interest. Trigger warnings for romanticized assauIt and lack of consent. The world building was pretty cool and I liked how illiteracy was handled. In general ACOTAR feels like it’s just setting up the rest of the series..Score: 2/5

Not worth $14I felt this book was very hurried. Loved the idea of it. Not a lot of time spent in important areas that could have been developed more for the price you’re paying.. I’ve read better novels that were $3.99, to be completely honest. Definitely a disappointment. Sampled book 2 and the author completely skipped over their engagement and other parts that the invested reader would have really enjoyed... In all, it was a waste of money that I sadly will never get back..Score: 2/5
