Rating ***** (5 stars) I cannot believe that I waited so long to start this series. I have heard so many great things about it, but I just did not pick it up. Even after I got the first book on Kindle I waited to start reading it. Do not make the same mistake.
A Court of Thornes and Roses is an amazingly written fantasy novel that combines familiar elements to make a refreshingly different story. While not entirely unique it is different enough to place the reader firmly in a new world. It is a world where humans are struggling to survive against fairies.
In a weird Beauty and the Beast tone Feyre, a 19 year old human, gets caught up in the fairy world. She is strong, brave, and human. Although, in the ways of 19 year olds she falls in love too fast.
This book is a horrible love story, but it is a great tale of human indurance. It is a story of courage and sacrifice. Mostly it is a story of trying to survive.
