A Court of Thorns and Roses
by Sarah J. Maas
Bloomsbury. 2015, 448 Pages. Young Adult Fantasy
Feyre must hunt for survival, but after killing a wolf that was pursuing the deer she spotted, her life is turned upside down. The wolf was a faerie creature from another land. Feyre is captured and forced to live in a magical kingdom for murdering the faerie. Feyre fears her capture at first, but then as she learns about the mysterious kingdom and the residents, her fear becomes passion and she must fight to break an ancient curse or lose the ones she loves forever.
This is my all time favorite book so far. It is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but as you read farther into the series there are a lot of twists that you would not expect. I loved how the story kept me guessing....I thought I knew the fairytale of Beauty and the Beast, but after reading this series it took me on a whole other journey past the story we all know.
