Book Review of A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

a court of thorns and roses

I first came across this book by scrolling through Pinterest and seeing the fan art associated with it. I kept seeing it again and again on my feed, and eventually, I got curious about who these characters were and how they tied together. This led to me checking the book out at the library, and I’m definitely glad I did!

With story elements from Beauty and the Beast and the Hades and Persephone myth, the book weaves a beautiful tale of love and sacrifice, and it begins to make us question what is real and what is not.

I absolutely love the characters. At first I didn’t like Tamlin at all, but he quickly grew on me. The same goes for Rhysand. He came across as evil and unfeeling, but we find that is anything but true. The ending scene with Rhysand and Feyre piqued my curiosity enough that I’m dying for the next book!
