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 grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

I can’t break it down for you. . .oh wait I can: EPIC. FANTASICAL EPICNESS.
Feyre – She started out a little to heard strong for me. She is a very sassy thing (maybe I’m saw too much of myself in her that way? HAHA) but I warmed up to her very quickly. When I did all I wanted to do was hug her-I understood the sense of family obligation she felt.
Tamlin – Oh you socially awkward faerie. Be still my heart.
Nesta – There’s the door. Don’t let it hit you on the way out you ungrateful little. . . witch.
Lucien – There are no coherent notes for him. Just hearts and emojis. SWOON CITY. GIMME.
Overall Thoughts: Well. The book that launched a thousand tweets (give or take a few :P). It’s hard to review a book you love, I know we’ve all been there but I’m going to admit something to you guys. I know this is book one but I think (THINK, not sure yet) there is a good chance that I might end up loving these more than the ToG series. WAIT. Don’t get mad! I still adore all of her books but something about this one just grabbed me and gave me Heir of Fire level feels book one. To me that says A LOT. (Manon, you’re still my fav though!) This book had all of the feels I had in ToG but stronger, darker, more of them, and felt more complete out the gate that I cannot tell you the level of anticipation I have for book two to be here already. The struggle is real. In fact I feel the urge to stop writing right now and maybe start a reread. Maas you are a genius.
This book had been preordered for some time and suggest you get with it STAT.
10/5 (Yeah I know, so what?)
