Review: Three Faerie tales in a row... Completely different. And, I loved them all.
The blurb got me the first time I read it, and it definitely got me this time. A simple idea put into words. But I didn't ever imagine how amazing A Court of Thorns and Roses could truly be.
Feyre is a human who has lost everything; her family's wealth stripped from them years ago, forcing them to live as peasants. She spends her time in a dangerous woods searching for a meal to feed her starving family.
Of all the characters, there were many I admired. Nesta, first and foremost. Not a major character at all, but I really related to her. Rhysand was also my kinds of character, mysterious with hidden agendas.
Tamlin and Feyre were absolutely amazing. I loved watching their relationship grow, from hatred, to love. Amarantha was a powerful character, a major conflict of the story, an antagonist in every way.
I absolutely loved the storyline of ACOTAR, Feyre's journey was filled with complications which only made me love Sarah J. Maas even more. I highly recommend ACOTAR to all fantasy lovers and ToG fans.
