Excerpt: "When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.

At least, he’s not a beast all the time.

As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

From bestselling author Sarah J. Maas comes a seductive, breathtaking book that blends romance, adventure, and faerie lore into an unforgettable read."

My Rambles: Aside from having read this more than once, I'm also in a fan group on facebook and collect fanart/fan-text (idk what to call them cause its not stories)[random scenarios]. Someone pointed out and I feel stupid for never thinking it myself but, why did Elain never grow veggies, why only flowers? I still wonder if there wasn't some sort of fae blood in the sisters, the fact the Nesta wasn't glamored, some of the things Feyre is able to notice and do. I went into this knowing it was "a retelling of Beauty and the Beast" so it was rather bland for me and is my least favorite of the series. I think the real story starts in book two. I love rereading so I can actually notice all the foreshadowing. So I know they were tricked into losing their powers but like....if all the high lords ganged up on Amarantha at once, I feel like they could have gotten out. Also, Tamlin should have just asked if Feyre loved him or not, I doubt she would have lied. After reading the last book and seeing how other readers hate on Nesta it makes me sad. She was the only one that did/would have gone after Feyre. She never stopped her from being the huntress but she would have given their father that "moment" to see if he would ever truly rise and then did something about it. She's not as horrid as every one makes her out to be. Don't get me wrong, I hated her too in the beginning, but after seeing her through all the masks and pain, she's a solid character.

Side note: I hate the new covers
