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.
I put off reading this book for the longest time, mainly because there was so much hype around it and I was worried that I wasn’t going to like it. But thankfully I did enjoy it.
I have to admit that it did start pretty slow, and I didn’t seem to enjoy the first half of the book. Plus the plot was pretty thin until about the last third of the book. That kinda hurt the rating.
Feyre was a good character. She is flawed, cold, but still cared about her family enough to not just walk away from them.
The last third of the book really did pull me in, and I can’t wait to read the next book.
