When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution.

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.

Great writing. This book was so good, from the plot, to the character development, to the pace, and the dialogue. And it just gets better in the next books

Awesome. Ive been a lover of books for so long but this has truly reminded me how to simply enjoy something. This was a fantastic first book! Cant wait for the rest of them!!

GET THROUGH BOOK 1. THE FIRST BOOK - The writing style is not for me. Much more interested in the other characters than the main character, probably since the main falls entirely flat. I think if she had foregone the “heated” parts it would be a great fantasy book for a child. THE SECOND BOOK - I AM HOOKED you just really have to survive the first book then the story really takes off in the second.

2.5 stars. The first 45% of this book was just boring and the pacing was slow. It was a struggle to get through but I stuck with it because of the hype surrounding it and the promise that it was worth finishing just to get to the second book that is supposed to much better. It was hard to emotionally invest in any of the characters and by the time things finally became interesting in the second half I found myself only mildly entertained. Honestly the second half wasn’t good enough to make up for such a slow start, nor was it good enough for me to justify moving on to the next book and paying full price for it. I’ll catch it if it’s ever on sale like this one was.

Very cliche and full of itself. I made it over half way through before going to read other reviews. Seems like those that rave about it want an easy read with sex scenes, definitely not a fantasy book. The author came very close a few times to making the world and characters interesting, but quickly lost the plot, unfortunately. Not worth the money for a fantasy book, or even a romance, both aspects are shallow and miss the mark. Based on other reviews, I will not be finishing the book or the series.

Love love love. I am a sucker for fantasy world building and this was significantly better than a lot of other books I’ve ever read! I will definitely be reading the next!

Fun escape. This book gave beauty and the beast vibes, but I continued on to finishing all 5 books and was pleasantly surprised.

Incredible!!. Perfect start to the series.

Amazing. This is an amazing book I recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy and action!!🤩🤩

2nd Go around. overall a pretty solid book I could not stop reading so that’s definitely a good sign. I read this once in 2020 and I’m coming back to it and it’s still pretty good despite the fact that sometimes Sarah J Moss tries to embed imagery and it just sounds kind of silly sometimes.

I will not continue. I’ve been told by multiple people that this series gets better, but in my opinion nothing can redeem the writing in this book. The author dragged everything out and the connection between the two main characters seems forced? Sorry, but will not continue.

Saucy. Hot

I couldn’t put it down. I wasn’t expecting what happened to happen. It I really enjoyed this book!!

Beauty and the beast knock off. Too teeny bopper and too close of a replica to beauty and the beast

3.5/5. It was like if hunger games and twilight had a baby. Stripped of any satirical or political/class warfare undertones that gave its parent books any depth. Definitely a *little* more smut than the above mentioned with some fairy magic.

Absolutely LOVE it!. This is my favorite series ever! The characters are on fleek and the plot got me hooked from chapter one. My only problem is Tamlin, and anybody who finished the series knows EXACTLY what I’m talking about 😑. Other than that obvious mess up, the whole thing is just “PERFECTION on paper” Ms Maas, YOU ARE AMAZING!

Such a great series!. Highly recommend!

Perfection. Sarah J Maas did such an amazing job on this series. And you cannot help but to fall in love with the characters.

This was a reread. And I devoured it as crazed and hungry as the first time. Such a good book. Love this series.

Speechless. This series… where do I even begin? I cried, I laughed, I sat on the edge of my seat with goosebumps, I was thoroughly aroused… There are a few holes, some slow parts in the third book, but overall it was a great series to curl up with and escape into a magical realm that has so much adventure, mystery and of course, toe curling romance.

Won’t be disappointed. This is the best book I’ve ever read. It got me back into reading!!

Addictive page turner. I couldn’t get enough

I’m in the black hole of SJM. I’m currently on Queen of Shadows after finishing the ACOTAR series and I plan on finishing the whole thing plus crescent city by 2024.

LOVE. Basically beauty and the beast, fairy version/ masquerade.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I hadn’t read for a long time and this book definitely got me out of my reading funk. It deserves its 5 stars for presenting romance, fighting, fantasy and bravery all wrapped beautifully in 1 go. It’s as though you’re there with Feyre along the way getting a backseat view of all she has to live

Storied loved. Easy and mesmerizing read. Fables meet a beauty-huntress, a beast of a world and love.

Pleasant.. I’d like a little more spice. And sometimes it felt a little too easy. But a good story. Excited to keep reading.

Loved. It.. I really loved this book. The way SJM portrayed the characters was amazing.

Confusing world building. I enjoyed this book, however It is in first person and the descriptions of the world and the creatures in it were a bit hard for me to conceptualize. The writing is slightly confusing, and it takes a while to get into the book- especially if you read any of her other books prior to this one. Other than those points, it is a good book and was entertaining enough to keep me engaged. I have heard that this series gets better as it goes on, so I am going to continue reading it. It is based in a fantasy realm, but it is more like faeries in a grotto kind of fantasy, rather than knights and castles.

Best Series. This is the best book series I’ve ever read. Expect it to change your life. I had been in a reading rut for a few years now and this entire series pulled me out of my slumber! Thank you for this amazing series, Sarah J. Maas. You are my new favorite author!

She’s not perfect but she’s worth it. I really loved this book and continued to read the entire series but this book definitely takes some warming up. I was hooked but at times I found myself putting it down or being semi hard to track because of the the author dialogue, that being said I still loved this book. Book 2 and 5 though are my all time favorites.

Terrible writing and predictable plot. Waste of time

Why is this popular?. It’s as if someone tried to combine the best of “Beauty and the Beast” and the worst of “Twilight”. Terrible characters, terrible writing. Wish I could get my time back that I put into reading this book. I kept trying and pushing through because I had a lot of friends who told me how great it was. I ended up stopping about 3/4 of the way through and just skimming the last chapter. Really glad I only got this at the library and didn’t actually buy it. Not worth your time.

Oh wow. This genuinely change my life.

Good. Good but sometimes the dialogue was very subpar

A thrilling but easy read. A great read especially for a first time fantasy reader. World building was easy to follow and the author wastes no time throwing you into the thick of it. I loved the little bit of spice in it too.

Soo good. This book starts out slow like the first half, really good but slow and a little repetitive, but by the second half when Rhysand and Amarantha come in, it’s an automatic 5 stars, it gets soooo good, like can’t put book down good

amazing. beautifully written, so descriptive you actually feel like you’re in the world with them. a definite must read- i can’t wait to read the rest of the series

wow.. wow. WOW. this book is my favorite book i’ve ever read and i come back to it enough that i could practically recite it. what a beautifully written story by sarah as she always does. beauty and the beast meets hunger games. insane and i love it

Super good!. The book was fantastic. Rhysand is just *chefs kiss*

Best book ever. All time favourite book. I reread it all the time. It is my Roman Empire

Great read!. It had everything I was looking for in a new book/series. Romance, thrill, action, mystery, love, adventure, and a great ending!

5 ⭐️’s. Kept seeing this book suggested and thought, fantasy romance? Eh… but I saw it was coming to Hulu eventually as a show and figured I’d give it a try before watching it. OMG. I devoured this book in 2 days! The characters, the scenery, the story, I was captivated! I already bought the series and can’t wait to read it all. 5 ‘s!

Love. The character development of the main character was believable and amazing. I’m excited to read the sequel!

Overhyped. Definitely expected more based on everyone gushing over this series. Also if you are looking for any kind of spicy/smut this does not qualify. There were two instances where it could have been added but they were rushed through with no detail and less than a paragraph for either of them.

ITS SO GOOD. the plot the everything omg

Incredible read. Thrilling, romantic, sexy, humorous, it has it all. I became lost in this book and in doing so, finished it in 1 day. I haven’t read a book in years. This just ignited my lost passion for a great story. Thank you.

Great start to a great series. Loved this book and the characters. It really sets the scene for the rest of the books!

Beautiful!. I kept hearing mixed reviews about this book but I loved every second of it. If you’re having a hard time getting into it, keep pushing through the first few chapters. It’s soooo worth it! Can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

Enjoyed it. This was a good book. It took me a while to finish but was worth it! Crazy turning points.

AMAZING. I absolutely love this series with all of my heart. Sarah j. Maas is my new favourite author after reading 7 of her books I’m completely hooked. You’ll fall in love with the character as the series goes on and won’t regret a moment of reading it.

The story pulls you in. You know it and can’t help but read along to see what happens next. Beauty and the Beast without the Disney gloss. This story makes the characters and their inevitable choices resonate with you long after you are done reading. Wow what a book hangover.

absolutely amazing. I couldn’t put this book down.

A court of thorns and roses was amazing! First time getting excited about a book in years. I loved this book! First time getting excited about a book In years can’t wait to read more

The book that started it all. The first of the book series that got me in love with reading. I am an adult now that has never loved reading, the twists and turns of these characters and the fantasy that she is written them in, to me, feel as real as the Harry Potter series. It comes to life when you read this series. I could not stop, I bought all the books immediately and when they were not here in time for me to continue to the next one, I bought them on my phone until they arrived at my home. Thank you Sarah J Maas for creating a wild world that I could loose my self in and yet also feel connected to.

Amazing read. I couldn’t put the book down.

Thorns and roses. Excellent!

Amazing. I’ve been waiting a long time for another book to make me not want to stop reading. This is it. I could not put it down! I can’t wait to start book two!!!

Loved it!!. Couldn’t put it down

Exciting, enticing and enchanting. Loved this book. Such a great gateway into the series. I’ve been consuming these books rapidly.

One of my favorite series of all time. The first book is good, the second book is glorious. Her best work! This series is tied for first place as my favorite ever.

Enjoyed this book. I liked it I'm excited for the remaining books in the series. Couldn't put them down.

Couldn’t put it down. Combination between beauty and the beast and twilight. Great read!

Incredible. This was a work of art. I enjoyed EVERY minute spent reading.

Im 100% hooked, confused but hooked!!!. I love the world inside the book SO MUCH I WANNA GO THERE 🥲🤭 and honestly the way the book ends, I’m really excited for what happens next!!!!

Great read. Slow to start but can’t drop the book when I got into it. Lots of captivating parts, action, romance.

Thank you!. Amazing book. Had me hooked from beginning to end. Recently got back into reading and I’m so glad I started with this

Great read, slow start. I really liked the fantasy fiction aspect. I did find it challenging to follow at times. Will be reading the sequel
