When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.
Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!
Once again I was in another world, which amazed me. This time we went to another fairy world, where as usual things were complicated. It's a really rich world in detail and once again it managed to combine what we knew of our world with something new and magical. Besides its world, this book also introduced some interesting creatures and powers I knew nothing about. As always, I was willing to learn more. With that there was romance that turned me into my teen self, giggling and swooning page after page. Good guys in disguise will be end of me.
While the setting amazed me and it's something I cannot wait to return to I cannot say the same for the characters. Well, at least not for Feyre. She just didn't have that vibe around her that I wanted to love. It annoyed me that she became perfect in anything she did. It did work for Caleana after her years of practice and most of the needs provided. But Feyre not that much. Luckily, as the story progressed she started to fail and got easier to grasp in a way.
Lastly, let's hope that by adding Rhys to the pot this is not going where I think it's going. Please sequel, prove me wrong.
Rating: 4 stars.
Until the next time,
