Hi new book review for you to have a read if you are interested 🙂


Synopsis –

 Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So, when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

My Views

This book had me hooked after the first few chapters! which is properly why only took me 3 days to read ha-ha.  Feyre is the main character to the story who is living in poverty and must hunt to provide for her family. Something happens that has her in trouble or, so she thought. Tamlin who takes her to his court as payment for her wrong. She then finds her self uncovering secrets of the fairies she didn’t know existed.

The book is fast pace and is fantasy genre with so many new creatures, magic and love in the book. As I am an ending fan of books, this didn’t disappoint me at all. It leaves you wanting to read the books to follow. I loved all the characters that was placed in the book, but Lucien is my favourite so far in the series. The story placed many twists in the plot I didn’t expect which I loved!

Fav Quotes-

“There once was a lady most beautiful

spirited, if a little unusual

Her friends were few

But how men did queue

But all gave a refusal”

“Thorny. Prickly. Sour. Contrary” I love both the quotes they set the tone of the book.

Good points

The book keeps a fast pace plot throughout the story. It displays characters that you grow to love and hate. Now I am Tamlin fan however, others have told me to prepare for the next books ha-ha. I love that there is a strong female character that does not depend on boys/men to hunt and provide for her family.

Another good point Is there were so many secrets and twists to the book it is hard not to put down! Lucien character I loved throughout he was the humour, laughter and loyal friend of the story. The story is so well written that you can literally picture every description and sentence. The romance was well thought out as you see the characters grow on one another.

Bad points

As was a 5* rating there wasn’t many bad points. However, the one thing I would say is this book is written for female readers in my opinion. This is only because as I read the book I couldn’t imagine a male reading it and enjoying it the same. This is just my view though!

Thanks for reading my review ! 🙂
