THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R.R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin--one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin--and his world--forever.

Sarah J. Maas is the #1 New York Times and internationally bestselling author of the Court of Thorns and Roses series, as well as the Throne of Glass series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't stop reading!! Idk why I held back from reading this series for so long, but the moment I started reading, I couldn't stop. The beginning was a little slow for me, but from there on, it was everything I wanted; fantasy, adventure, a strong main female character (that wasn't weak and throwing herself into dangers that she couldn't handle, those are annoying), romance, & the surprises that you don't notice throughout reading (it made me think, wow, now that all makes sense with the previous scenes lol). It was a great start. Definitely recommend to give it a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was my fav series read so far! This is a perfect series for you if you love fantasy, steamy romance, politics, fae and cocky guys! Rysand is my book husband, no doubt about it and it will be hard to top him as my fav character in a fantasy series, he’s so delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Absolute Adventure I loved the whole series and am a big fan of the author, Sarah J. Maas. I recommend this series to anyone who loves a good fantasy plot line with a hint of romance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slow and Generic After many a year of putting off reading this book, I suddenly decided the time was now to pick it up. I wanted fantasy, I wanted romance, and I knew that this book had a massive following behind it proclaiming the excellency of both. Well. ... Let me say, considering the massive following and popularity, I expected more. I wouldn't have even said that I had overly high expectations either, I just wanted more from the story. This novel did not exceed exceptions, fulfill expectations, or even meet expectations. It drastically lacked in all forms (except for words because if anything, it succeeded in being a long novel). In all honesty, this novel was, to put it simply: boring. There was nothing that was very exciting and nothing that made it beyond an average novel in the fantasy genre. I didn't really like any of the characters whether it be Feyre, Tamlin, or Rhysand; however, that could possibly change in future novels. I just did not become interested or invested in any of their characters for this particular novel. It was a long, generic, and boring story to read and there are much better fantasies out there. I wish that this was a novel that I loved but unfortunately, it was not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read for romance and fantasy lovers All i have to say is WOW! This series is amazing. Sarah J Mass really makes the reader feel like they are in the book. When you read that the ground shakes you feel the ground move. Not only do the books have some beyond steamy scenes but also has some great action in it as well. I was addicted to this world very quickly and am craving more. A must must read

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word: Amazing I absolutely adore this series. While definitely containing some content that's a little too mature for some teen audiences, this book is everything I wish I had back as a teenager. Sarah J. Maas does an excellent job of world building, as well as incorporating different fairytales and mythologies into her story. While this book itself does have a bit of a slow start, it hooks its claws into you and you will not be able to free yourself. Fantasy and romance never looked so good. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good start It's a great fantasy novel. Although it starts a little on the slower side, it gives a good introduction into the world of fae, and what to expect within the rest of the series. If you love fantasy, romance and adventure, I would say this is a good book to pick up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Deal! I've heard Sarah J Maas compared to George R.R. Martin, and I think that is completely wrong in every regard, but Sarah does know how to write a good story! The story starts off slow just like any Maas book does, but the ending is what you live for, as always.
Date published: 2018-07-19

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best YA book It was interesting, the characters were well-developed. It teaches you how to say Feyre in the beginning. Fay-ruh, was mentioned in the book when her sisters talked about her. Tamlin was well-developed. The main idea and function of prythian was well though. All the courts made sense and no confusing names or places.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Series Very heavy on the romance but I loved it regardless. The characters are so lovable (even if they got annoying by the third book). The first two books (especially ACOMAF) are amazing but sadly the last book falls short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing series! This is an enticing and mind blowing series. It has you ravishing for more and once you start it is hard to put the book down! The book has you smiling, crying and laughing along with the characters. It is so well written you forget your reading and the words become a movie in your mind. A Court of Thorns and Roses will swallow your heart up! I would definitely recommend this to a mature reader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sarah does it again! Sarah J Maas is a wonderful, beautiful woman who I thank everyday for bringing me into the book world! Her Throne of Glass series is what opened my love for not only reading, but YA fantasy! Her ability to have a large set of characters and each being their very own, unique and NECESSARY additions to the plot amaze me, for it is very difficult for authors to balance a lot of characters. While ToG will always be my favourite series, ACOTAR is a very close second. For the of you who may have not loved the first book of this series I STRONGLY encourage you to keep going because the second book. A Court of Mist and Fury is even better, which is very rare for a sequel! Love, love, love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little cliche, but an overall good read I enjoyed the overall story. The world she creates has endless possibilities. I liked that Feyre was the one to save the day like a knight in shining armour (instead of one of the guys), but I don't like that she needed help so much (and always from one of the male characters). I don't understand why she falls for the sulky guy... The night court high lord is an interesting character, but I'm still not sure I understand his end game. As I said, a little cliche, but an overall good read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WELL..... I'm not a HUGE fan. Its good, far better than most YA fantasy books out there. Th eplot doesn't feel heavy, and the challenge of war and an unjust society isnt overwhelming. Thsi book was really refreshing. If you don't love this book, PLEASE FINISH IT. The sequels are incredible and blow this book out of the water. The series gets better with every book.

A friend of mine highly recommended it and I am so glad she did as I generally gravitate towards something like The Game of Thrones, or Name of The Wind and thought at first that I may not be too interested in this series. I was so wrong! I was submersed in the whole series and then recommended it to others! Sarah J Maas is brilliant and I am so excited to see what else her amazing creativity and unique gifts brings to life next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from READ THIS I only started reading the series because I had the Throne of Glass series and loved it! I was also waiting for the next book to come out for that series. I had seen some posts online as well about this one and was curious about since I loved the other series and Sarah is an amazing author. I was not disappointed with this one, some spin-offs or other series aren't as good as the original famed series but this one exceeded my expectations! No offence to this one but Throne of Glass is still my favourite of the two but this one is a close second
Date published: 2018-04-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I only have one thing to say. READ IT. No, I'm not kidding, just read it if you love everything romance, fantasy and action! Fell in love with this series, can't wait to read more books by Sarah J Maas!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sarah J Maas Did it Again! Sarah J Maas is my all time favourite author. A Court of Thorns and Roses did not disappoint. Although this had a bit of a slow start at the beginning, the last half of the book was action packed and had a enormous plot twist. The characters were lovable and the story was unique, witty, and action packed. Would recommend to anyone that loves a good romance, good friendship, a badass heroine, and a magical story!
Date published: 2018-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely loved it!!!! I have fallen in love with Sarah J. Maas universe. I red the whole trilogy in less than 5 days. I would recommend this book for any one looking for a book that keeps you on your toes and take your breath away with each twist plot. Everytime you think you have it all figured out, Sarah J. Maas just comes in and destroy you. Be prepare to laugh and cry and curse!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This book was okay I read this book twice. It was a little hard to get into the first time, which is why I only managed to read halfway. The second time was a little better as I was able to understand more of the story. I do recommend this book SINCE THE NEXT BOOK IS SO SO SO MUCH BETTER and you also need the knowledge from this book to read the next one (duh)!!!
Date published: 2018-04-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great series I had heard amazing reviews on this series and finally decided to check it out. The characters are well written and manage to surprise at every turn. Sarah J. Maas manages to make characters that are threatening, yet still compassionate at the same time, with an ever changing storyline to keep you reading. I love this series and can't wait for the rest of it to be published.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't give out 5 stars often There are not enough words to explain how amazing this book is. It is because of this book that I got out of my reading slump. It reminded me why I love literature so much. I was skeptical at first because faeries are not something I am interested in, but this book proved me wrong. It got me jumping out of my seat, screaming and dying to find people to talk to about it. I couldn't put it down! I think I found my new favourite author! If you like Beauty and the Beast, you'll love this high fantasy, young adult book (I use the young adult book term loosely when it comes to this book).

I'm not a huge fan of the cover art for these books and thought they were going to be a tad childish.

The beginning was a little slow but once I got into it I was hooked!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great series Loved this series thought the last one was a little cramped at the end and you feel that the author is trying to tie up all the details in like a 100 pages and still your missing some info (tempo goes from slow in the first one (but you don't feel it) to like worpe speed in the last one). Great caracters all the way through and yes your going to want to see what happens after (new one to come but after the war). As for the set great present to offer though you can sometimes have a special where you'll get the individual book for 2 for 20$ so the set might be a little expensive.
Date published: 2018-01-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great series I loved the first two books but the last book in this series just wasn't as good as I was expecting. I was expecting a lot more considering the ending of the second book but it just felt like it was missing something. Hope there are more books in the series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST SERIES EVER This was an amazing, captivating, page-turner of a book!! If you are a fan of fantasy and you don't read this, you are missing out!

Best decision ever, the series was so good....highly recommended! hoping the author keeps going with the universe! What an incredible journey.

I could just imagine the movie series that could be made from these books if Peter jackson directed them! This is an exciting gut wrenching suck you in series! Must read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this! This book was the first of Mass's that I read, and her writing was so amazing that the day after I finished reading it I ran out to buy all of her other books. I would highly recommend not only this book, but all of Sarah J. Mass's books, they're utterly incredible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LURVED THIS! I thought of reading this book after reading Sarah J. Mass's other books and loving them. Sarah has once again created another fantastic fantasy world of magic, love and friendship, I absoultly enjoyed every single page of this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing series! totally worth the box set! i love it! (there is a fourth book btw) but it centers less on the situation from this trilogy. it's like the selection series - first three books are about one main conflict, and then the other books center around a different conflict.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow beginning, but overall enjoyable It took me two tries to get into this novel but after pushing to get through the first 100 pages the pacing was a lot faster and it was a very enjoyable read, definitely recommend this series if you're a fantasy lover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I had this book on my shelf for 3 months before I decided to read it simply because I didn't have anything else to read.... I couldn't put it down once I started and I ended up finishing it in one day! Sarah J. Maas really knows how to tell a story! The female protagonist is amazing! She's not super cliche, despite this being yet another curse-breaking faerie story. There were probably only 2 parts where I rolled my eyes at a dumb move she mad, but other than that, I was hooked from the beginning. Do yourself a favour and read this book! You won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer I cannot express how much I loved this series. The first book starts very slow, but when the real story picks up I literally could not put it down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AWESOME When I heard this book was a retelling of beauty and the beast, I immediately put ACOTAR on the wishlist. I bought it and read it. The first 60 pages or so I think it was a bit boring, there were not a lot of action or anything going on. But I gave the book a chance and when I read more, action came pouring in. So keep reading and you will enjoy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great read I adored this book, and read through it extremely fast. The novel hooked me in right from the first page, was beautifully written and extremely descriptive. I loved all the minor details that were taken care of and the setting and society. It was well developed, and not hard to understand the society and social order that the book revolved around. Another challenge that fantasy books face is to create a setting and a new world where everything adds up, and the history, creation, appearance, characters and everything is all tied together flawlessly and make it all click in together. This novel did exactly that. Great read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tough Start but Picks Up! This book initially was very difficult to get through, wasn't until the last 1/3 of the book where things really picked up and got interesting... If you can make it through the beginning you should enjoy the book !
Date published: 2017-09-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get through the first book, you'll love the series I have to admit that I empathize with some other reviewers in that the beginning of the first book in the series is slightly agonizing as I struggled with the foolishness/ naivete of the main character. That said this series really thrives in books two and three. So if you're willing to stick out the first book I'm telling you that it gets better, much better, in the other books in the series.
Date published: 2017-09-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay but disappointing.. I was really excited to read this initially, but as I read I found the plot to be weak and the main character to be foolish in the decisions she made. I also found that not much happened until almost 2/3 into the book. I think I will pick up the second book in hopes that the series does improve, but so far I am not very impressed.
Date published: 2017-09-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from DECENT It's decent, but nothing really HAPPENS until the last third of the book & that's when everything really picks up. In the first 2/3, i was waiting for Feyre to get moving, to do THINGS & she was just content to stay there & be locked away. So it was a tad bit tedious but the last third made up for it :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Re-Read; Loved It More The First Time I read this book quite a while ago and instantly fell in love with it. This was also before I'd read Maas's other series, Throne Of Glass, which I've recently read, enjoyed, and checked off my TBR. After sitting down and thoroughly immersing myself in SJM's writing, I've come to realize it's simply not worth all the hype surrounding it. Sarah J. Maas is, in her own right, a wonderful novelist, but by no means is she the genius a lot of readers make her out to be. Yes, the male characters she introduces us to are absolutely gorgeous, but it's not enough for me to give her a top-spot as one of my favorite authors. Her writing style is juvenile at times, and at others, downright aggravating. Especially in her ACOTAR series - Feyre is constantly whining, complaining, giving out "vile gestures" - seriously, if only I had a dollar for every time SJM used this bloody phrase - and I don't think the males know how to communicate other than purring or roaring. When I first read this book, I gave it a full five stars. I was blinded by love and hype and thought SJM was God's gift to readers. Now, after exploring her writing style further and re-reading this particular book, clearly, my opinions have changed and that is no longer the case. I'm currently about 200 pages into ACOMAF; hopefully, this book will impress me more than the first. Recommended to fans of SJM, retellings, and fantasy lovers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Bland NOT exciting, not original, not owrth reading on its own. The only reason I read it was because I loved her other series but was very let down with this. The only character of interest is barely in it and the only reason I would recommend this was to explain key plot points so that someone could read the second one and understand it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book and series! Well worth the read! NOT FOR TEENAGERS though. This book was SO well written. I purchased it because I love fantasy and magic. I tend to purchase Y.A fantasy fiction over adult, because of the sex scenes and the adult content overall...I just prefer a fun adventure with less real-life drama I guess! Lol. But these books are AMAZING. I LOVED them. I plan on re-reading them....which says a lot. There are pretty racey sex scenes, particularly in the third book so I would NOT let a teenager read it...just not age appropriate. There were times i felt uncomfortable and I am 30 years old! I actually read a scene to my Mum...she then said she wanted to read the series! LOL But the character development and psychology is just awesome. Sarah J. Maas knows how to write!!!! Get it.
