A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

This is the first book in the ACOTAR series.

Feyre is a huntress. And when she sees a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she kills the predator and takes its prey to feed herself and her two sisters. But the wolf was not what it seemed, and Feyre cannot predict the high price she will have to pay for its death …

Dragged away from her family for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding even more than his piercing green eyes suggest. Feyre’s presence at his court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for Tamlin 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.

I heard a lot of good things about this book before reading it as it was all over bookish groups, booktok and bookstagram as a must read book.

A Court of Thorns and Roses is a beauty and beast retelling but has a fae twist to the story.

The world is well built and the characters are interesting, especially Freye, Rhysand and Tamlin. There is a love triangle that is highlighted throughout this book as well.

The themes of politics and societal structure is seen in A Court of Thorns and Roses which seems to be a common theme in a lot of ya fantasy books.

Overall A Court of Thorns and Roses is a good read and I will continue reading the series.
