A Court of Thorns and Roses Review

This book is a Beauty and the Beast retelling with a Hunger Games twist. Feyre is a fae-hating human who kills a wolf just because she suspects that it might be fae—and she’s right, and the wolf’s friends come to claim her life. Tamlin, her captor, plays a Beast-like role, while she’s anything but a demure, bookish Belle. She’s not even literate. As a fairytale retelling, the book is exceedingly clever and definitely makes the story feel fresh and new.

Dat opening line: “The forest was a labyrinth of snow and ice.” Drool.

The humor (mainly provided by Lucien, and a little by Rhysand) made the book sparkle for me, even though the story gets darker than dark.

All in all: 5 stars. 


  1. This must-have friend welcomes perusers to encounter the distinctive symbolism of Sarah J. Maas' #1 New York Times top of the line A Court of Thorns and Roses arrangement. 46 bits of dazzling unique fine art enliven most loved characters, animals, and minutes, including the rich magnificence of the Spring Court and the flickering dynamic quality of the Night Court.
