Review: Sarah J. Maas – A Court of Thorns and Roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses

See info here!

~~~

I finished this book few hours ago. What I must say? Why I hadn’t read it earlier?

I have this book on my shelf for about 2 months and I knew I’ll start it sooner or later. I was really tempted, but I have few boos to read before, so as I know that I have it, I was able to postpone the day I will start reading it. Anyhow, it came and now I can’t stop. I want the second book.

What I liked in this one? In the first pages I was able to see a map of the world from ACOTAR and I pretty much love maps of different worlds. The main character Feyre was described in an interesting way and her reason to kill the wolf was missing, or at least for me. I won’t hide that I didn’t liked her family and I was waiting to see who Tamlin is.

And talking about Tamlin… I like his character, but there was something that make me feel strange about him, I have no idea what. And probably this is the reason that I liked Rhysand way much more than Tamlin.

The story is very interesting. I like the plot and how the story line goes, but it was like pain to reed how stupid is Feyre and how she makes some wrong choices. But in the end of the book I somehow knew that it was for good.

The book ends very open and makes you want to take the second book right after to finish this one, but publishing date for Bulgarian version of „A Court of Mist and Fury“ is 28th May.

All in all, I liked the book a lot and I recommend it for the wide audience and fans of YA and fantasy.

General note: 9.5/10

Seven years ago, the Veil that separates humanity from what lies beyond was torn apart, and New Orleans was engulfed in a supernatural war. Now, those with paranormal powers have been confined in a walled community that humans call the District. Those who live there call it Devil’s Isle.

Claire Connolly is a good girl with a dangerous secret: she’s a Sensitive, a human endowed with magic that seeped through the Veil. Claire knows that revealing her skills would mean being confined to Devil’s Isle. Unfortunately, hiding her power has left her untrained and unfocused.

Liam Quinn knows from experience that magic makes monsters of the weak, and he has no time for a Sensitive with no control of her own strength. But when he sees Claire using her powers to save a human under attack — in full view of the French Quarter — Liam decides to bring her to Devil’s Isle and the teacher she needs, even though getting her out of his way isn’t the same as keeping her out of his head.

But when the Veil threatens to shatter completely, Claire and Liam must work together to stop it, or else New Orleans will burn…

Nicole’s only been appointed as a legal Changeling for one month when the complaints all over town about souring milk grow louder. This seems the harmless prank of idle sprites, but when Nicole’s sleuthing leads her to a mortal man locked in a trunk, marked for sacrifice, she catches a whiff of something more sinister than fermenting lactose. Sprites may be mischievous, but they aren’t interested in blood rites.

When Nicole catches her husband in bed with another woman, she doesn’t just eject him from the premises — she turns his mistress into a mouse.

It’s not as if she meant to. Far as she knew, she was regular-issue human. So she’s mystified (and mortified) when Kailen, Fae-for-hire, shows up on her doorstep the next day, hits on her, and then drops this bomb: she’s a Changeling, a Fae raised among mortals. The doorways between the Fae and mortal worlds have been sealed shut for a millennium, but now are opening randomly at an alarming rate, and mortals are turning up dead. Kailen’s employers believe she’s the only one who can close them.

Nicole would be happy to oblige and get her life back to normal, but she’s developed a magical block. Not only does she fail to turn her husband’s mistress back into a human, she can’t do any magic unless she’s angry–and she’s only angry enough when her husband’s in the room. Before Nicole can say “I don’t believe in fairies,” she’s jumping between the Fae and mortal worlds with her soon-to-be-ex, his mousy mistress, and the Fae bodyguard she’s increasingly attracted to, trying to figure out who’s opening the doorways and why.

And she’d better stay mad and learn how to use her powers quickly, because there’s a price on her head. Any magic a Changeling performs cannot be undone by another Fae, so the Fae have a simple rule for those like Nicole — kill on sight.
