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!
Fehre goes hunting in the woods to feed her family and kills a wolf. The wolf she killed is unique. The consequences of killing the wolf will change Fehre's life forever.
This is one of the best young adult books I have read in a while. The writing style is wonderful. The characters are likable. There is action, romance and fantasy. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read fantasy. This is a book that I will probably re-read.
"You murdered my friend," the beast snarled. "Murdered him, skinned his corpse, sold it at the market, and then said he deserved it, and yet you have the nerve to question my generosity?" How typically human, he seemed to silently add. (38)
"Because when you look at it-when you acknowledge it- that's when it becomes real. That's when it can kill you." (91)
"Love," I breathed, the world crumbling into a blackness with no end. (403)
