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.
My review - You're probably thinking Beth, why has it taken you so long to pick up this book? And I'm not sure! I did pick it up last year but I wasn't feeling it at the time and now that ACOMAF is out I new I had to read it before I get really behind in this series.
AND NOW I'M THINKING WHY HAS IT TAKEN ME THIS LONG TO READ IT?! I love Throne Of Glass by Sarah by good lord this was fantastic! The world building was amazing and the characters where so intriguing and gripping that this has to be my favourite Maas book(I am currently reading ACOMAF so that may change)
Feyre is a great character. She has spent the majority of her life providing for her family. Her father can hardly walk and her two sisters don't like doing labour so she is left to hunt for her family, until one day one of the beast she kills isn't actually a beast-it's a faire and that is a really bad thing to do. A beast comes to her house and gives her an option-live with him or she will be torn to shreds. She obviously decides to live with him to the magical kingdom. She finds that his court have a spell cast upon them. All of them have mask attached to their faces and they believe there is no cure. Feyre meets a handful of characters but Tamlin means something to her, but can she save him from the curse without getting killed herself?
First things first, I've thought about Tamlins character for a good few hours and even though I liked him at first I feel like he is a tad fake. I feel like there is a lot he is hiding and he's so forceful and don't even get me started on Lucian. I get he is just doing his job but I really hope things change.
This was a great first book in what I can tell will be a fantastic series from Sarah. I cannot wait to read more about the other courts and how and if the human world and magical world will combine!
One thing I really loved about this book is how Sarah lets you know some of the history on the characters and their lives and I find that really interesting! I cannot wait to finish ACOMAF and *patiently* wait for the 3rd book.
