Review: A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES By Sarah J. Maas

When thinking about fairies, cute pictures of small people with wings that can conjure magic come to mind. It is always refreshing when a new idea surfaces, and experiencing Sarah J. Maas spin fairies into something unlike the ones I’ve known from childhood put a smile on my face.

Feyre lives in the aftermath of a world torn apart by a fairy-human war. Even though a treaty keeps the deadly fairies from using humans as slaves, that doesn’t mean the gruesome creatures don’t still haunt human lands. Feyre lives in hatred toward the fairies, just like most everyone living on the human land, but they have faded into the background of her life. Feyre would much rather have a decent meal on the table for her family, which is hard to come by in winter.

However, fairies come charging into Feyre’s life after she accidentally kills one. Though she would never admit she feels even a smidgeon of remorse for the kill, her life is turned upside-down when the treaty she never read forces her to go live with the fairies for eternity. Tamlin is the high fairy who whisks her away, and while she still tries to keep her hatred for the fairies alive, a passion strikes between them that can’t be ignored. But there are more things to worry about in this new world. There is a blight attacking the fairies, one that forces them to wear a mask on their faces that drains away their magic. The blight may start seeping into human lands, too, and Feyre knows she must stop it before it can affect her family she has been dragged away from.

This book had me glued to the pages. There was a powerful passion, but also beautiful imagery, awesome monsters, and seamless world-building. It was well worth the read.
