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.
Hello everyone! I’m back with another thrilling installment of Book Reviews by a Movie Watcher (BRBAMW)!!! Today, I’m making (100% valid) assumptions about the plot, characters, and romances in A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.
For those of you who are new to BRBAMW, I am provided with the cover and summary of a book that I have never previously heard of. Using this information, I create my own version of the plot, provide detailed analysis, contemplate choices in cover art, and (primarily) ask questions which reveal exactly how lost I am. Enjoy the confusion that is about to occur, because I have no clue what to make of this book.
I’m a highly impatient person (and no, I do not need a “Patience is a virtue…which you are clearing lacking” lecture). So when it comes to release dates, I watch them like a hawk, checking back frequently because I’ve mentally convinced myself that this will change the outcome. Or that the dates will have been magically moved up…but then again, who am I kidding? Combine this with my infatuation with “Pre-Order” buttons and a complete lack of self-restraint, and you have a recipe for disaster. Nevertheless, I don’t think I’ll be putting an end to this habit anytime soon.
Just in case you don’t share my peculiar obsession with stalking the websites, twitters, facebooks, personal lives, etc. of authors with upcoming releases, I figured I would divert my restlessness and compile a list of upcoming releases during the fall of 2016. And yes, this might give me another excuse to check those publication dates again…
As 2015 draws to a close, we’re both very excited about some of the new releases that will be appearing on shelves throughout 2016. These are a few of our top picks for the upcoming year.
