A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.

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

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

~ My Thoughts ~ 
Here's what you need to know about this book:

Chapter 27. That is all.

 Okay, so not really. There is more--A LOT MORE--I could say about this book, but every time I try to focus on the beautiful writing or Sarah J. Maas' ability to create a world I want to live in forever and ever, I get distracted by Chapter 27. 
If you like fairytale retellings with a bite of magic, then you WANT THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIFE.

"Dead chickens, my sagging a**. All you needed to do was offer it a new robe, and it would have groveled at your feet."

"I love you," he whispered, and kissed my brow. "Thorns and all." <---Lawd hammercy...this chapter though.
