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.


  • Promising but ultimately boring and repetitive

    By Horse lovers rock
    The beginning of this book was so promising but ultimately I just felt let down in the end, the main character could not find her way out of a paper bag of someone told her how to do it, she wouldn’t even be smart enough to listen to them telling her not to go into the paper bag in the first place. She could be such an interesting character, but she is now in a constant “my human shortcomings” mindset for absolutely no reason. There’s no stakes because the big strong faeries always come to rescue her. It’s boring and I hope Rhysand can make the second book even a little worth it.
  • Incredible book!!

    By kaylin 🤪
    This was such an enticing and beautifully thought out story. Such a good imagination to think up the whole story, and put it perfectly into words. One of my favorite books for sure!!! Excited and nervous to read more about Feyre’s next journey.

  • Like getting lost

    By sarie <3
    I can’t describe the breathlessness I encountered as I turned these pages… Should one ever desire to truly escape this world for a time and get lost in a fantasy, this is the place to go.

    I love this series, and Sarah J. Maas is an absolute GENIUS. If you enjoy this you must read her other series. ✨
  • Nothing new

    By afroeuropean
    Its not bad but nothing new nor interesting. Feels like any other book with no memorable characters nor moments.
