From School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—When 19-year-old Feyre kills a wolf in the barren woods near her home in Prythian, she thinks it might be enough to help her family survive another long winter. Instead, a monstrous creature soon comes to the cottage, accusing Feyre of murder and demanding she return with him to the Fae realm as payment for the life she took. Feyre finds herself held on a lavish estate belonging to an elite Fae creature known as Tamlin. Over the course of her captivity, Feyre soon learns that life in the Fae realm can be as much of an opportunity as a punishment. When her feelings for Tamlin shift from loathing to lust, Feyre also realizes little will be able to keep them apart—not even the threat of evil lurking on the borders of the estate. Something that has cursed Tamlin for centuries may destroy him and his realm if Feyre can’t find a way to stop it. Maas follows up her “Throne of Glass” novels (Bloomsbury) with this series opener. Readers will find the author’s trademark blend of action, romance, and witty banter as well as a sexier, edgier tone. This retelling of “Beauty and the Beast” and “Tam Lin” (with elements from ancient Greek mythology thrown in) has a strong focus on Feyre’s physical attraction to Tamlin, but characters lacking in dimension detract from Feyre’s strengths as a capable but rash heroine. Uneven pacing includes a slow start followed by a game-changing information dump, and then a more action- and less romance-filled second half. VERDICT A weak fantasy with strong romance elements. Good for fans of Maas’s previous books looking for a more mature read. —Emma Carbone, Brooklyn Public Library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Author paints a beautiful picture with words
Reviewed in Canada on August 21, 2020
I used to be a reader. Then I had 2 kids, and now that they can go into another room without dying, and sleeping through the night…I have enough energy to read. This is the first book I’ve read in 10 years. 10 years. I usually start a chapter in a book, and then it disappears, never to open again lol. This book…. I read this book on a camping trip. I read it in a day, I couldn’t put it down. This was a week ago. I’m done the second in the series, and just ordered two more in said series. I’ll also be ordering all of her other books. Sarah J Maas is an excellent writer, she absolutely paints a picture in your mind…clear as day. So absolutely 5 stars. If I could give more, I would. Highly recommend, if you enjoy fantasy with a bit of naughty bit added in. I hope they make these into movies!
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic edition!

Definitely the most beautiful book on my bookcase! The first book of the trilogy is not the best, not by far, but anyone who’s a fan of Sarah and the trilogy needs it! Too beautiful, I’m in love!
1.0 out of 5 stars Not for people who appreciate literature or the art of storytelling
Reviewed in the United States on December 11, 2018
Really, really, really, really terrible writing. You know how in filmmaking, you have text and then you have texture, and the two together is what makes a really great movie? Well, those categories apply well to storytelling as well, and this book is all text. I could see how these books’ basic building blocks could make for a compelling story. Unfortunately, the execution falls completely flat. The texture is completely nonexistent. If you appreciate good writing at all, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. It is shocking to me that so many people like these books so much. Seriously do yourself a favor: if you like good books, don’t read this one. However, if you like sex scenes interspersed among a poorly told story, by all means go right ahead, you will love this.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 26, 2018
So, I finally finished a Sarah J. Maas book! It’s been a long time coming, but of course I was going to end up reading this one – a combined re-imagining of ‘Beauty & The Beast’ and the lesser-known Scottish folk tale ‘Tam Lin’. It took me a lot longer to get through this one than I would have liked, mostly because despite the fact that I did like it, I couldn’t quite bring myself to fall in love.
As far as MCs go, Feyre was pretty good. She was tough and realistic, though at times her tendency to inner ramble wore on me. Tamlin, her love interest, I quite liked at first but as the book progressed, I realized that not only did I begin to question a few of his motives as more of his past was revealed, I found him a bit too dull: especially in comparison to characters filled with personality such as Rhysand and Lucien. It will be interesting to see how they and Nesta (who I think has SO much potential) develop in Book Two, as well as whether I continue to like Tamlin as the object of Feyre’s affections. I feel like Maas might be trying to sneak in a Hades & Persephone style story-line in the future and I have to say if I’m right then it’s ramped up my excitement for ‘A Court Of Mist & Fury’ tenfold! The world-building is nicely introduced though I still felt it skimped on some of the details, choosing to take more of an info-dumping approach later on via Alis rather than using more of that time that Feyre spends prancing and painting around the Spring Court.
The thing is, I DO really want to know what happens next but I can’t bring myself to lie and say that this book gave me that blown away feeling. It’s a really good story on creatures that are rarely focused on: the Fae. But I never felt truly gripped by the plot (the pacing was a little hot and cold) and can’t help but feel like I wanted more from a book that set the Blogging world on fire that was written by a widely loved Author in the YA Fantasy community.
1.0 out of 5 stars Wow. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Reviewed in the United States on October 27, 2018
I hate rating books this poorly, seeing how difficult it is to write one at all (let alone a good one).
But that said, I have to:
I didn’t care at all for the main character, Feyre. She wasn’t just clueless; she was downright unintelligent. She knows nothing about faeries or their powers at all, and yet consistently ignores everything everyone tries to tell her about them. The only way she got through the book and made it to the end is because she was constantly being rescued. Otherwise, she would’ve died as soon as the first little mishap on Tamlin’s lands took place. But seeing as how she’s constantly rewarded for her follies, she just keeps doing the same thing again and again.
This part actually made me laugh – when she makes it to the court Under the Mountain (in spite of everything and everyone) and is standing in front of Amarantha, after being warned ferociously about her again and again:
“And as I stared into her black eyes, I realized I was going to die.” Wow, really? She literally just figured that out? I highlighted that place in the book and am just amazed by it.
Another example of her unintelligence is when Amarantha tells her the riddle. Coming in to this book fresh, with no prior knowledge about the plot at all, I guessed the answer to the riddle when I first read it. But Feyre, claiming to love Tamlin oh so deeply (which by the way she discards him in the second book, I see), does not guess it until conveniently at the very end for some reason, after she’s gone through all the trials. Also, I really fail to see why Amarantha decides to hinge everything on whether or not Feyre could figure out a riddle. Anyone with a shred more intelligence than Feyre would’ve guessed it instantly and Amarantha would have been defeated.
The only reason I finished the book is because I like to finish what I start and it was a mildly interesting plot aside from the main character. I cannot recommend this book at all personally. But I know there are lots of other people who like it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
4.0 out of 5 stars This one is good; the sequel is even better…
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 15, 2017
So, where do I begin?
This book has such a following it’s hard to really say anything that hasn’t already been said but I shall do my best.
The story starts off with a ‘Beauty and The Beast’ vibe that mingles with a Hunger Games-y, Cinderella-esque type main character and a super mysterious plot. However, it quickly develops into much more than that as we gradually discover more and more about the Faerie world and the creatures who inhabit it.
Something I liked about the plot (and something that seems to be a trend among YA fiction at the moment – see Caraval) was the way Mass played with the idea of truth. A Court of Thorns and Roses invites the reader to question a great deal of what we read on the page, making it both more unpredictable and more magical. In terms of ‘overall outcome’ the plot was fairly typical but this didn’t really take away from the story. The only part I found a little disappointing was the way the key romantic relationship shifts after about half-way through. I think I’ve guessed events in the sequel purely because later descriptions of the couple seem to indicate that Maas is no longer invested in it – it will be interesting to see how it all plays out. (I hope it plays out in a particular way) I totally ship Rhys – I’m not even ashamed. He’s so much more interesting than Tamlin.
I really enjoyed the way Maas made faeries so acutely unlike traditional ‘fairy’ images. The raw, animal nature of the Fae characters was fun to read and I liked the little canine and feline behavioral traits she used. Feyre’s character is still kind of growing on me though – I was disappointed that she was given quite so much help by male characters in later chapters, it really took away from the gender tropes the opening chapters challenged. The weak father and strong daughter juxtaposition paired with the female Mercenary was a good opener and I’d definitely like to read more about the briefly introduced mercenary.
Nesta, I think, actually proved to be one of the most intriguing characters and I’d really like to read more about her too. Don’t get me wrong, the faeries are cool and all, I just feel like her character was compelling and utterly human – and, really, there’s some magic in that too. She pulls a full 360 and goes from evil step-sister to loyal protector, a character arc I just really felt was worth mentioning. She’s so magically human that she defies magic, I hope Maas does something cool with her character.
“I’d never heard of a glamour not working. But Nesta’s mind was so entirely her own; she had put up such strong walls—of steel and iron and ash wood—that even a High Lord’s magic couldn’t pierce them.”
Another thing that disappointed me about this read, and perhaps the reason it doesn’t quite make it to four stars, was that I felt quite disconnected from the characters I was reading about. There are really gruesome and emotional events going on in this novel but few made my heart race and I didn’t cry – not even once. I’m not saying crying makes a book good but sad things did happen; it would’ve been a better book had I felt that in the writing. I really want to love this series and I’m hoping the second book lets me do that by just harnessing a little more emotion and tension.
In summary, this was an interesting story and kept me reading till the last page. Despite all the little niggles, I really did enjoy it and I’ll definitely be picking up the sequel with high hopes.
3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 8, 2018
I have really mixed feelings about this book. OK, so it took me a long time to get through it. I devoured three other books while I kept putting this down and picking it up again.
I think I found Fayre, the main character, a little hard to relate to or feel anything for. I didn’t particularly like her, but there were other characters that I did like, such as Lucien, Rhysand and Nesta. Feyre likes to paint and I think this is where the empathy is supposed to come through – oh, look, she paints, so she has got a heart, but it didn’t quite hit the mark.
This is at the older end of young adult with some very raunchy scenes. I didn’t mind them but it’s something to keep in mind.
The writing style was stilted at times and her overuse of repetition can become distracting, pulling you out of the story rather than enhancing it. Some descriptions were just strange but then others were beautiful.
It was a bit of a slow start. Towards the end I was thinking oh god, there’s still 20% left, but as it turned out that was the section I enjoyed most. This pulled it from being 2.5 stars to 3.
I can see why this is such a huge hit. I have the second and third book on my kindle but I’m not sure when the mood will take me to pick them up. I’m certainly not rushing for them, but maybe they’ll keep calling out to me to be read, just like this one did.
