A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J. Maas
description



If you loved Crown of Midnight you are going to love this book.

If you are a fan of THE BEAUTY AND BEAST you're going to find yourself falling for this book, hard real hard. You know when you finish a book and still think about it? Well this book isn't perfect but it surely is one of those.

This is in fact a retelling of the Beauty and the Beast. Sarah J. Maas took a marvelous fairytale and transformed it in so much more. It's not just a romantic tale of how a "human" falls in love with a beastly Fae, but how that love can shatter a realm or save it.

I love Sarah's style, her world building is always so precise and full of details. She drags you in this wonderful world where you actually get to live. I've seen her style become more vivid, more detailed, more precise, more captivating with her Throne of Glass series. I think she'll do the same with this series. The first book is more about the falling in love, the sacrifice, the truth being told... the next books are going to either shatter our hearts or make it pounce and dance of joy. We'll just have to wait... a whole year!!!

description



Now here is a good question: If I loved this book Soooooo much why did I give it 4 stars?>

- Well after reading Heir of Fire I must admit I was expecting just a bit more.

- I loved Feyre, but at times she acted like an immature... always putting her mortal life at risk.

- I loved Tamlin, really, really loved him (I'm going to talk about him in a sec) but he could have shown his love in a certain situation (you'll know once you read the book) even though his strength for the one he loved was admirable. I wanted a bit more ^^

- I loved the romance, but not many feels... I wanted my heart to stop just the way it did with Chaol :/ (I don't want to compare the two series, but it's kind of inevitable)

Well as you can see nothing major but I'm saving my 5 stars for the next book, that I'm pretty sure will steal my heart like all Sarah's books.

(⊙.⊙) Oh and that ending?! It made my heart melt. Poor Feyre!!! I couldn't believe what was going on and what she had to endure... that while I was reading I was clenching my kindle so hard just to let the pain in my heart go away. That ending is going to have a major influence on Feyre. Everything is going to change. Let's hope not her feelings.

P.S. There is no cliffhanger, so if you're looking for a great book, with a great world building, with action and love mixing up THIS IS THE BOOK YOU MUST READ!

Look at the first picture. Of her and Tamlin and then look at the cover. That's our Feyre. With that tattoo!!! When you'll read you'll know what it means!!! #cantwaitforbooktwo

Human or not she is a kick ass heroine. She has the determination of an huntress and has the heart of an artist. I love art, so when I was reading all her descriptions I felt like I was watching the paintings, the murals and the amazing nature that rose around her.
She is an heroine that we either love or hate, and I must admit that at times I wanted to kick her, but everything she did… she did it for love. She sacrificed herself for HIM. Her true love.
Well I LOVED HER! I loved everything about her. She's also amusing, she made me smile and laugh often. But she also took my heart and made it melt.

"Though I supposed for Tamlin - for High Fae used to ethereal, flawless beauty - it HAD been a struggle to find a compliment. Faerie bastard"

"I would never be able to capture that - never be able to paint the feel and taste of him, no matter how many times I tried, no matter how many colors I used"

This is how I imagine Lucien with his red hair (not that red in this pic) and his metallic eye. HOT. HOT. HOT
Ohhh Lucien. <3
I fell in love with Lucien right away. Sarah has this way of making you love all her characters, probably because she writes with LOVE. Lucian is funny, harsh, faithful, amazing, handsome, a real friend. He's Tamlin emissary, a lost Lord, a Fae whose heart has been shattered. He is willing to risk his life for his loyal friend and for the freedom of the Spring Court's people.

Ohhhhh you'll love Lucien!!!

Rhysand... what to say! He is an antagonist, and what a hot antagonist. He turns out to be worst than we expected and better than we hoped. He is fascinating, intriguing, and he does all that he can to get under Tamlin's skin. Fyere at the beginning is just an expedient but then something changes.

There is so much more under that dark mask of his, can't wait to know more!
(o.O)

We will see what that last scene meant in the next book. Well we have a whole week every month to figure out Rhys and his twisted mind. I really like his character but I'm not rooting for him. Fyere risked her life and so much more for Tamlin, their love is so pure that I couldn't stand something growing between her and Rhys (I know a lot of you aren't with me... but the heart wants what it wants).

Well that's exactly how I imagine my HIGH LORD! With his golden hair and bright green eyes! Tamlin! I wanted so much more, more flirting, more bickering, but everything was perfect!He was perfect. There is one scene that just shattered my heart. He demonstrated his pure love for her by bowing and begging. In that scene I fell in love with him, his bowing was a real demonstration of power: the power of love.
He isn't ashamed to bow his head for the love of his life, or either beg when there is nothing left. His cold stoned heart makes our little human one beat. Beat fast. All for him. I want more!!!

review SPOILER ALERT! 2014-08-30 09:23
The fae world in central London
Sixty-One Nails (Courts of the Feyre (Numbered)) - Mike Shevdon

When a book is promised to follow in the footsteps of the marvellous Neil Gaiman; I’m always wary. There’s very few who can justify that claim. While I understand how that comparison can be made with this book, Sixty-One nails is an excellent fae fantasy story in its own right.


It is a similar vein to Neverwhere; centring upon a middle-aged man, who is accidentally brought into a world of fairies and magic that is quite simply outside of his comprehension. The plot leads us around London, with much of it tied into the setting. While the history of London is a key element of the plot, it doesn’t have the same symbiosis Neverwhere does; although if you enjoyed Neverwhere, this book will probably have the same appeal.


Folklore is intricately tied into the plotline; travelling via lay lines and fairies being unable to touch iron are a few examples. However the relationship between the human world and the fairy world isn’t explored well in this book; it seems to be too at odds. It was hard to understand how a semi-harmonious state had been achieved. The close of the novel though suggests this will be explored in the second of the series.


Niall is a good lead character, with enough disbelief and common reactions to the strange events that befall him to gain your trust and sympathy. Blackbird is less easy to connect with, and I still find it difficult to picture her completely. Although her strength, power and wisdom can be seen clearly, her vulnerability appears suddenly, in an almost cliché way. Not enough time is given to her as a character, so when the relationship begins between them, it’s difficult to understand the connection.


I did enjoy this novel, and the plot was strong throughout; will be reading the next in the series.

The Eighth Court (Courts of The Feyre #4) - Mike Shevdon Loved the story, and the characters. But it ended with a cliff hanger, and that just pisses me off! The books before this didn't end that way, so that's why its getting a 3 star. Easy 4 star if they hadn't let it end the way it did.

The Road to Bedlam (Courts of the Feyre)
The Road to Bedlam (Courts of the Feyre) - Mike Shevdon I enjoyed this book almost as much as the 1st. As in the 1st book there was plenty of action and suspense, but what this one lacked was the interaction between Nial and Blackbird. He was more on his own in this book whereas in the 1st they had the adventures together. Still a very good sequel.

Sixty-One Nails: Courts of the Feyre, Book 1
Sixty-One Nails: Courts of the Feyre, Book 1 - Mike Shevdon I really enjoyed this book. Great characters that really develop well as the story progresses. I really like Blackbird and the way in the beginning of the book she was cold and distant, and not letting on anything personal. By the end of the book we see how much she changed. Because it is written from a 1st person we cant really tell if she changed herself or she just started to let our protagonist in past her defenses.
This book follows the Fey-re and most of the same ideas, laws and rules that other fey-re stories in-tale. That being said doesn't me it is a bad story, the ideas of the Fey are good ones and i don't see anything wrong with using what works.
This book has plenty of adventure and suspense. As well as great dialogue, all in all a great read.
