A Court of Thorns and Roses Review


When I first delved into A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas I was enthralled by the world she was building. A huntress supporting her family? Freezing cold woods? Dangerous faeries? I was all in! As the story went on I was entranced by Tamlin and his court as well as the mystery surrounding the blight. The romance was as steamy as I had heard as well. This was not a disappointment!

BUT I was not a fan of how out of nowhere Tamlin and Feyre's relationship seemed. Also, the fact that he took care of her family so well and that this was made clear so soon seemed a bit odd. In short I liked the beginning and the end of A Court of Thorns and Roses but it did drag a bit in the middle and I still don't know if I REALLY ship Tamlin and Feyre.

The Final Verdict?
I would give A Court of Thorns and Roses a 4 out of 5 stars. I loved Feyre's backstory and her obsession with painting. I loved the world and the faeries. The only thing I didn't like was the instalove and the fact that it was advertised as a Beauty and the Beast retelling. Tamlin could choose to be a handsome prince with only a mask hindering his appearance. He didn't really have anything wrong with him. It was still a good start to the series though and because this was the first Sarah J. Maas book I read I will be giving its sequel, A Court of Mist and Fury, a try.
