Staff Reviews

When 19-year-old human girl, Feyre, kills a faerie in the form of a wolf, the High Lord of one of the four Fae courts comes to bring her punishment — death, or to replace the life she took by living out the rest of her days in the faerie realm. This retelling mash-up of "Beauty and the Beast" and "East of the Sun, West of the Moon" is unique, lyrical, and even more compulsively readable than Maas' Throne of Glass series. Perfect for adults and older teens looking for new spins on old tales.

— Paige Mushaw

This is the first in a new series from Maas, author of The Throne of Glass series.
It’s a wonderfully lush and evocative novel about the Fae. When nineteen-year-old huntress and mortal, Feyre, inadvertently kills one of the immortal High Fae, she is thrown into a whole other world she must learn to navigate in order to survive. Highly Recommend!

— Becky Doherty

The first in the Court of Thorns and Roses series, this book has everything you could want from a New Adult fantasy, and Maas has cherry-picked the best elements from the genre to create a novel with a compelling protagonist, descriptive prose, expert world-building, captivating conflict, and a passionate central romance. Filled with action, danger, and magic, and inspired by Beauty and the Beast, East of the Sun West of the Moon, and the folktale Tamlin, you'll be yearning for the next in the series before you've even finished the first.

Feyre's life is never the same after she kills a wolf in the woods. Dragged into the world of Fae against her will, she learns that they are not as evil and dangerous as the legends claim them to be. In this Beauty and the Beast retelling, Feyre, a mortal girl, is the only one who can save the faeries of Prythian. Fantastical, action-packed, and the perfect introduction into the world of Sarah J Maas and the romantasy genre. — Lydia Avery


The sexy, action-packed first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Court of Thorns and Roses series from Sarah J. Maas.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.

At least, he's not a beast all the time.

As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever.

From bestselling author Sarah J. Maas comes a seductive, breathtaking book that blends romance, adventure, and faerie lore into an unforgettable read.
