ACOTAR Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
Holy terrific series, Batman! This series was SO FREAKING GOOD! I cannot get over how much I loved it.
Now disclaimer, I normally shy away from books at the first mention of faeries. It just was never my cup of tea, but I read and watched so many great reviews on this series that I decided to give it a chance and man I am so glad I did.
First of all, the writing: it was gorgeous! Absolutely stunning! I was so over the moon impressed with Sarah J. Maas’s writing style. I cannot say enough great things about it.
Her characters were flawless. I loved (and loved to hate) them all so much. The good guys were spectacular and the bad guys were dark and awesome. I fell in love with them all. And they all had some sort of grey area. For example, the main protagonists did some pretty dark and messed up things and then at the same time, the antagonists had some redeeming moments. No one was truly good or bad (except for the King of Hybern or maybe that jerk that rules the autumn court! Those were some evil, scary dudes!)
I loved all the plotlines in the books. There was so many twists and turns and so many things I did not see coming. It kept me on the edge of my seat
Bottom line is: I could talk for hours about this series and I will probably do a more in depth review video on these but for now if you are looking for a great fantasy read, look no further! This is definitely worth the money and will make beautiful additions to your reading collection!
