Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
What I thought: Another gorgeous Sarah J. Maas book. While I was waiting for the next installment of Throne of Glass, I picked up this book during a road trip with my husband. Needless to say, it was a book that I reread as soon as I finished it. Maas has succeeded in making another badass feminine character whose journey I enjoyed to be a part of and will continue to follow as long as Maas puts out more books! After reading this book, I wasn’t sure I was ready to continue because I loved it so much, but man was I glad I did. This series is definitely a top fave!
The Quote: Don’t feel bad for one moment about doing what brings you joy.
Why I chose it: While I think these are sound words to live by – unless what brings you joy is murdering a bunch of people….then maybe we have a problem. I liked this quote because it was a moment of bonding between our two characters. Of course Tamlin is fucking tool, but he was still likeable at this point.
