This is an exciting twist on the Beauty & Beast tale and set in the land of faerie. Overcoming conflict, finding acceptance & love, and sacrificing everything you are for what you believe. A solid young adult book.

Wow. All I can say is, seriously, just wow. I read this book so fast it doesn’t even felt like I read it. This was one of the deepest, darkest, sexiest reimagined fairy tales I’ve ever read. From the first page, Maas has you. There are QUITE A FEW TRIGGER WARNINGS in this novel (just so young adults are aware).
I’ve read a lot of complaints about Tamlin, and I can’t say I agree with them. I honestly loved their relationship. (whatever haters, haha)
I am already contemplating reading this one again, as well as buying the entire box set to keep. I loved this book so much, I’m already on the second. I’m so excited!

This is my favorite by Maas. The twist on Beauty and the Beast with a human girl being pulled into the drama of Fae is the perfect read to pick up if you’re into classic fairytales twisted a little darker.

I really really liked this series, especially since the following books are a lot longer. This book in particular wasn't that great. It didn't really get "good" for me until the last half, but if you can get past this one the others are way better!

I enjoyed this book and it was really well written. I didn't think it was super original, with the beginning feeling pretty Beauty-and-the-Beast-esque and the classic fairy curse. I still really liked the characters, and it got more interesting towards the end and I want to see what happens.
I enjoyed this one but I liked her other series better.

For fans of super-romantic teen fantasy. Feels derivative of Melissa Marr and Robin McKinley...but not in a bad way.

This is such a good story! I'm listening to the audiobook and there have been times I didn't want to get out of the car and I had to bring the book inside so I could finish up the book over the weekend. Book two is not coming fast enough from the library.

I picked this up by accident. I flipped to a random page and started reading. Confused.

WOW. Seriously wow. This romantic fantasy is basically if Beauty and the Beast and Twilight had a baby in fairyland and I CAN NOT GET ENOUGH. So delicious and fun and heartbreaking and it's a series! What more could a person want?

Sexual Content: Throughout the entire series there is lots of sexual content. You have been warned. Many of her other books do not feature of this so I was slightly surprised.

Sexual Content: Tamlin kisses Feyre's breasts and the inside of her thigh, bites her neck, and grabs her breast. They are naked together and do have sex, though that is not described graphically at all. Feyre mentions that she had recreational sex with a boy from her town.

If you thought this was good wait till you read the second one, A Court of Mist and Fury. I am hooked on this series like I was with Twilight and Hunger Games but MORE! She did such a good job writing this book/series. I can't believe it took me checking it out 3 times and getting past the first chapter till I finally fell for it. ;) kid you not this series is rated #1. I have read over 100 books in the past 2 years an this has been the best! Read it!!
