REVIEW: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns & Roses, #1)A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Feyre is torn from her family and dragged off to the faerie realm, all she knows is based only the stories she's heard growing up. But she soon discovers that while some of the stories have an ounce of truth to them, not all that live in the realm are the cold, heartless animals she'd been led to believe. And when she opens her heart to her captor, Tamlin, her world is indeed changed for the better, even as danger lies around every corner.

I originally read this book awhile back in 2015, but couldn't remember how it ended (nor had I done a written review), so I wanted to reread it again before starting the others in this series. I think I enjoyed it more the second time around, gobbling it up in only 5 days vs a month the previous time. The author has a very descriptive prose that allowed me to immerse myself in the beautiful, magical world she created... well, sometimes beautiful, but other times quite dark and scary as well. And I felt like I was right there next to Feyre seeing everything through her eyes. I'm anxiously looking forward to see what happens with Feyre and Tamlin next... and while Rhysand was indeed a "bad guy" even he got to me, so I'm also looking forward to finding out what became of him too since we were left with a bit of a cliffhanger there.
