A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas - review | Children's books | The GuardianThe novel is retelling of Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore. It follows the protagonist, Feyre who finds herself entwined with faeries after unknowingly killing one. When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from the legends of her ancestors, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin — one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world; not to mention one of the High Lords of Prythian. 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. The book begins with our heroine Feyre hunting in the woods behind her home.

Maas's writing is fabulous and flawless as usual. The world and the characters she has built are equally as loveable as the ones she has created in Throne of Glass. Her descriptions of Prythian are so vivid; she builds this world with brilliant clarity. Prythian is very different to the world we have experienced in Maas's Erilea as this world has magic and strange beasties. I could've read a whole book on Feyre encountering a whole host of weird and wonderful creatures. I am so eager to see what the next books introduce. Feyre is such a strong female protagonist!
