A woman in lace and maribou against a red sky and a forest backgroundThis novel tells a story of a 19-year-old Feyre, who finds herself in a world of faeries after unknowingly killing one. When she kills a faerie in the woods to feed her family, a beast comes to take her away to the spring court where she has to live forever as her punishment. Feyre than discovers that her captor is not a beast but a man whose named Tamlin. He is one of the high lord who once ruled their world but was taken over by a queen who is evil. Feyre must find a way to stop it or doom Tamlin and his world forever. 

I really enjoyed this novel because it was entertaining, had great character development, and was thrilling. We were introduced to several characters in this novel such as Feyre, Rhy, Lucien and Tamlin. They all had very diverse personalities which made it interesting. Feyre grew so much in this novel and I am proud of her. She fights for what she believes in and does not give up. Lucien was a great friend and is very sweet. Tamlin is protective however, he did not shine like the other characters in this book in my opinion. Rhy (aka Rhysand), was amazing and was my favourite character! He has a wonderful personality and I am looking for more of him in the next book. Overall, I loved this book and enjoyed every minute of it. I would definitely recommend this novel because it wont let you down!
