The sexy, action-packed first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Court of Thorns and Roses series from Sarah J. Maas.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.

At least, he's not a beast all the time.

As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever.

From bestselling author Sarah J. Maas comes a seductive, breathtaking book that blends romance, adventure, and faerie lore into an unforgettable read.


  • The. Best. Series

    By Saylors01
    Just amazing. A must read. I’m on my fourth time reading it and will probably continue rereading it forever. It’s got everything and the most epic love story but not utterly predictable. Such an awesome storyline

    I literally could not put this book and finished it within a couple days!! To each their own, however, I thoroughly loved it and plan on recommending to all my friends as well.
  • Not worth $14

    By Braleys
    I felt this book was very hurried. Loved the idea of it. Not a lot of time spent in important areas that could have been developed more for the price you’re paying.. I’ve read better novels that were $3.99, to be completely honest. Definitely a disappointment. Sampled book 2 and the author completely skipped over their engagement and other parts that the invested reader would have really enjoyed... In all, it was a waste of money that I sadly will never get back.
  • Great read

    By GhibliPendragon
    ACOTAR seems like a retelling of the movie not the OG story which made it really shallow. The plot starts slow and the curse was so specific/convenient that it gave Chosen One vibes. While Feyre is not a dumb character, the author makes excuses for her to make dumb decisions to further the plot. The “beast”, Tamlin, is painfully cliche (“you’re not your father”). The villain is horribly cartoonish. Rhysand would have made an awesome villain, but his relationship with Feyre was problematic especially since it looks like he’s a potential love interest. Trigger warnings for romanticized assauIt and lack of consent. The world building was pretty cool and I liked how illiteracy was handled. In general ACOTAR feels like it’s just setting up the rest of the series.
  • First person but worth it

    By ThisTheaterKid
    So I personally hate first person POV’s. Personally the man characters in the books I’ve read previously in first person just lean on that story telling devise way too much, My friend kept telling me how amazing this series was and how I just needed to push through the first few chapters and then I’d get it..... and you know what, this book lives up to the hype. If you’re like me and hate first person, just push through and by the end of the sample you’ll become invested.
  • Astounding Series
