Feyre is a huntress, and she had to do anything in order to feed her family and herself. One day she encountered a wolf, so she killed it. What she didn’t know was that it wasn’t a wolf but a Fae. She had to live the rest of her days in Prythian with a hot High Fae, Tamlin.
“We need hope as much as we need bread and meat,” he interrupted, his eyes clear for a rare moment. “We need hope, or else we cannot endure.”
I felt proud of Feyre since I started reading the first chapter because for me she was a strong and mature woman. She sacrifice her life every single day in order to feed her family, and she didn’t enjoyed her life because of that. I think the best thing that could’ve happened to her was killing that Fae. Because of that, Tamlin came into the “rescue”, and she started to have and live her own life. That was just what she needed, “freedom”, being away from her family, having a good place to live… even though Tamlin did that in order to get free of his curse. I really enjoyed how well their friendship/relationship grew and developed throughout the story, because it wasn’t rushed like it happens in some books. As I said, Feyre was a strong and mature woman, but so was Tamlin. His character was so well written. He wasn’t the only male character who was well written, because Lucien and Rhysand were phenomenal. Even though I liked and loved Tamlin and Rhysand, I think Lucien was my favorite. He cared too much, but showed so little. His past was heartbreaking, but that didn’t affected his sense of humor. He was so funny and sarcastic when he talked with Feyre and those were my favorite scenes, I swear.
“I love you,” he whispered, and kissed my brow. “Thorns and all.”
One of the most amazing parts of this story was when they were at Amarantha’s and Feyre was on her final task and she had to kill three faes including Tamlin. When she figured out what she had to do and was going to happened, I had goosebumps. I think that part gave anxiety and I couldn’t breath. I was like “OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING”. There was another part that I liked but I’m not going to tell you.
“Be glad of your human heart, Feyre. Pity those who don’t feel anything at all.”
The world building was marvelous. Sarah J. Maas is the queen when it comes to write phenomenal worlds. I really liked how she describes every single place, the clothes, the way people looks, even the sex scenes. Tamlin and Feyre had their hormones all over the place and they couldn’t keep their hands to themselves, hahaha… (I loved those scenes, I was blushed all the time). I love curses, and having it as a plot was fantastic. I can sense some love triangle coming very, very soon and I’m screaming cuz I like that so muchhhh. Also, I know that we will read more about Rhysand in ACOMAF and I’m fangirling already. Every time there was going to be a problem, I was shocked like the character because everything took my by surprise. Sarah never disappoint me, she has done and amazing job with the Throne of Glass series and this book as an introductions was beautiful, everything I wanted.
“More—I wanted the hardness of his body crushing against mine; I wanted his mouth and teeth and tongue on my bare skin, on my breasts, between my legs. Everywhere—I wanted him everywhere. I was drowning in that need.”
I highly recommend this book if you like her writing style, faeries and hot guys. I swear you won’t regret reading this book (you can ask me because this is the second time I read it). I’m not ready to read ACOMAF, so we’ll see when I’m going to have enough courage to pick it up.
