A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas is released this week in both the US and UK, see A Court of Thorns and Roses: UK Link. This is the first book in a new series by Maas and draws from Tam Lin folklore, which tends to be a fan favorite for many. Tam Lin, and this retelling, have Beauty and the Beast influences, too, so if that is your catnip, now you know of another book to add to your list!
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 over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever.
Perfect for fans of Kristen Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!
