From Goodreads:
A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.

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.

Why I am waiting:
This is likely a popular choice on the Waiting on Wednesday circuit. After reading all of the reviews, I just couldn’t resist being on of the many. I just can not pass up the retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales combined with fae lore.

As I have not read any of the author’s previous work, I am a tad bit skeptical. But, most of the advanced reviews are glowing. So, I am going to snag a copy as soon as it hits the digital shelves.

I just hope the book is as stunning as the cover! *Drools* Can I cosplay a book cover?

  1. I cannot wait for this book! I love Beauty and the Beast and I loved SJM’s other works so I have high hopes for this one myself. Hopefully it will live it to all it’s hype.


  2. This book is also on my TBR. I haven’t read her other books yet but I do have Throne of Glass that I bought recently. Planning on reading that soon before her new book so I have a good idea of her writing style.


  3. I’ve just started reading this and so far I am loving it so so much! I hope you enjoy it when you get round to reading it 🙂 Thank you for sharing! Here’s my WoW if you would like to check it out! Have a great day! I’m a new follower too 🙂
