Wow oh Wow! A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas is exactly what all the hype was about. It couldn't have been better and I look forward to the next book in this series. This book is every bit of movie worthy. The characters are raw, swoon worthy, and very intriguing to say the least. So let me tell you...........The story is about a poverty-stricken 19yr old girl named Feyre, she was a wretched little thing, with hate in her heart toward Fairies. At this point in time humans and Fairies were at odds over a war that happened 49 yrs ago, causing humans to live everyday in fear of what was just beyond the wall that separated the two realms. Feyre lived in a little cottage with her father and two older sisters. Her family was once well off but it was all taken away, one bad business deal after another and her father lost everything. After making her mother a promise that she will take care of her father and her sisters on her death bed, Feyre was the provider. Though she was illiterate, she learned how to hunt to provide food and money so that her family could live. It seemed as though Feyre hated life, she thought how could her mother bestow a promise on the youngest child like that, to bear that cross, her ungrateful sisters and father not lifting a hand to help, still wallowing in the past of how they used to live, and her sisters always saying unkind things to her. But on one of the coldest days during winter Feyre went out hunting, if she didn't they wouldn't survive the week, she spotted a deer, although she saw that it was a bit small, they needed the meal and with winter ongoing it was hard enough as is to hunt for a decent meal. When she started for her weapons, she also noticed a rather large wolf that looked like it was also about to make his move on the deer. In order to get the deer she had to kill the wolf, and that's exactly what she did, she suspected the wolf was Fairie and felt like it was well deserved, she ended up skinning the wolf for the fur and taking the deer back to her family. With the little fortune Feyre had with killing the deer and selling the hides, it didn't last long, she didn't expect for another wolf to barge in her living room the next night demanding that she return with him to his estate to live out the rest of her days, a life for a life. There you find out the wolf that whisked her away is a High Lord Fae named Tamilin, he is of the spring court. Tamilin is surprising cordial to Feyre, making Feyre cautious especially with her killing his friend and all, how could he suppress his anger so well, maybe its trickery. Anyway in this world everything is not what it seems, hate often turns into love, and what was bad is now good. The detailed imagery in this book was amazing from Feyre hunting in the woods, going into town, and going to the magical lands of the Fae. It is a lot of mystery is in this story, and it keeps you guessing to the very end. Not one single page was predictable. I enjoyed the ending and can't wait to see what troubles are in for the duo. There is love, loss, pain, and joy in this series. The portrayal of the Fairies and how they interacted was written with greatness. The story flowed perfectly and I can't wait til someone recognizes it for what its worth and brings it to a theater near you!
