Feyre is a huntress.

She thinks nothing of slaughtering a wolf to capture its prey. But, like all mortals, she fears what lingers mercilessly beyond the forest. And she will learn that taking the life of a magical creature comes at high price...

Imprisoned in an enchanted court in her enemy's kingdom. Feyre is free to roam but forbidden to escape. Her captor's body bears the scars of fighting and his face is always masked - but his piercing stare draws her ever closer. As Feyre's feelings for Tamlin begin to burn through every warning she's been told about his kind. an ancient, wicked shadow grows.

Feyre must find a way to break a spell, or lose her heart forever.


Aha..This is my second time reading A Court of Thorns and Roses (#ACOTAR) and I, now, remember why, I kind of a bit mad at Feyre. Here I will share with you the characters, the story and might a bit spoiler from this book (maybe more?) and I bet many of you have read #ACOTAR, isn't it? or Maybe not. Nonetheless, here comes my thoughts.

When I first received this book, I was so ecstatic! And I just jump into this book, pushing away all the books that I currently reading in that particular time, which is last year and, I read it again this year! 😍 The first two chapters were a bit slow and I was like, "wait, why is it slow? No! No! Please, don't!" but then, gosh, I was wrong! So freaking wrong! This is the first book that has make hook up on reading more fantasy genre! Goodness! It is definitely the best book I ever read! You guys should read, please, if you have not yet read. Go and grab this book and read! Now! I meant it! 😁

Okay! Let stop being over reacting, Fatina. Now, lets talk about what inside the books that has make me falling in love with it. First, the author's writing is amazing, you won't feel like, "ah, why is it too many wordsss", which I mean, how to explain, err, there some books I've had read, fantasy mainly, the writings was like so dull and you will instantly put it under DNF, you won't pick it up to read it. Done. Seal. But this book, nope, you ain't going to feel like that, girl. Its the best and it won't make you stop from reading it.

Second, the characters ;

Feyre - A girl who is so stubborn and never feel afraid on doing things she wants! Well, she is a huntress, by the way. she hunting in a forest for her and family to eat and one day, she killed a faerie and that is the turning point of her life and her family.

Tamlin / Rhysand / Lucien - These 3 powerful Fae Lord in Prythian has make my heart tremble. lol Well, each of them has their own strength, power, and also very protective.

Third, at first Feyre has been capture by Tamlin (High Fae of Prythian) because she found guilty in murdering their Faerie, who has been wondering in the mortal land. Thus, she been brought to the Prythian and been locked in a place that is not even a prison at all, instead, its Tamlin's place, I imagine it as a castle, massive castle with beautiful garden. Feyre, is free to roam anywhere in that place but in one condition, she could never been able try to escape from Faerie land.

Though, Feyre living in a land with full of magic, living lavishly but she never thought behind those magical things, with fierce but handsome, Tamlin, there is something, Tamlin hide from her. A very huge secret that she never know what is what. She knows, that there is a 'she' who has a cold heart and ruthless faerie ever. This is when, we will see, Feyre, a human kind, will show her strong side in trying to save the Prythian land.

Overall, its amazing and I could not stop thinking about #ACOTAR! Still, I have the second book to read, which is A Court of Mist and Fury and I can't wait to know what is going to happen in there. Hence, I'm going to start read #ACOMAF, now!
