My Rating: 5 stars out of 5

Genre: Fantasy

This has got to be one of the best books I have read this year. OMG WHAT EVEN DID I JUST EXPERIENCE.

This is one the best book experiences I have had. Like holy shit. Where do I even begin?

Feyre, has the responsibility of looking after a family at a such a young age. She takes her role seriously, so much so that the only thing she knows is to provide for them. She doesn’t ever think about herself. She is a little bit cold because of that fact. She is always hunting to provide food for her poverty stricken family.

However, not only humans roam the earth. There are the faerie creatures who dwell behind an invisible wall at northern parts of the world. So close to Fayre’s own village. They are known to be incredibly powerful but also cruel to humans. They lurk in the forest sometimes, breaching the wall. But Feyre still must hunt. That is until she kills one of them and must spend the rest of her life across the border with one of them; Tamlin.

I loved being whisked away in to this enchanted world. There were lots to learn about them and a lot of description. Usually that would deter me from a book, but in this instance I devoured all the information I received. I experienced this journey almost as if I was there along for the ride with Feyre. The author is brilliant.

All the characters were amazing. Tamlin, Lucien, other Faerie characters. Characters who I hated initially but grew to love. Everyone plays an important role. Fayre especially is strong, she’s never afraid to speak her mind and never afraid to face danger if it means saving those she loves. Everything was so refreshing.

The writing was fantastic and I just cannot say this enough. The author made everything come alive within the book. The descriptions allowed me to picture everything and feel as if I was right there in the story. Sarah J Maas is bloody brilliant for making this come to life.

I am so glad book 2 is already out and I don’t have to wait. Although I am not looking forward to waiting for more books after that.
