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.

I’m just going to get this out of the way: I did not like this book. I did not like it at all. And while it does on some level makes me sad that I was so put off by a book written by an author that has produced otherwise fantastic stuff, A Court of Thorns and Roses is probably one of the worst books I’ve read this year (so far, lawd help me).
