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.


  • Absolutely Astonishing

    By Stella Grant
    I have seen so many amazing reviews on this series and honestly, none of them can truly explain how amazing and mesmerizing the storyline is. The way Sarah J. Maas has woven this book around its characters and plot is unlike any other book I have ever read. There are so many emotions that have my heart pounding every time I flip the page. I finished the entire 5 book series in 4 days. I truly do love these books. I don’t know of any books that have made me feel this way. Im going to have to check out her other series, but I doubt anything will compare.
  • If you read this, read these books.

    This series is one unlike I’ve ever read, and probably will read. The DYNAMICS. The CHARACTERS. The DIALOGUE. The DESCRIPTION. Don’t hesitate to read these books!! I never thought someone could take a character and change them and a reader’s feelings for them so thoroughly, and make the reader feel so deeply. What Maas does is magic, pure magic. I haven’t just read these books, I’ve been immersed in a story unlike any other that I haven’t been able to put down. I read a LOT and I don’t think I’ll ever get over the impact these books have left on me. I want to scream to the world about how amazing these books are, but these reviews will have to do.
  • Loved it! But slow beginning

    By fayo a
    Took me a while get into it because the beginning started off really slow, but once it picked up speed… I couldn’t put the book down.
  • 10000000000/10 recommend

    By CameronElaine274
    I just finished this series today and I am literally depressed it’s over. This was most definitely one of the best series I have ever read.
  • Hear me out…

    I do not like this book at all. Despise it honestly. It’s like a bad spin off. BUT the rest of the books in the series? ARE AMAZING. It’s like this one book was written by a dumbed down version of the author. I’m convinced she wrote this one badly on purpose, to go with the story line in a way(you’d have to read the others to see where I’m coming from). Hate this book. LOVE and adore the rest of the whole series. I’m rereading now for the second time. Lol
  • Unoriginal plot but still worth reading

    By Katiep_90
    When I first started reading this book I thought ok, game of thrones north or the wall we’ve seen that before…but I finished the book in 3 days nonetheless. An entertaining look into the world of fairies.
  • read this series 10/10

    By Sasha12123
    My favorite series right now. I hadn’t read any fiction in 10 years and literally finished all 5 books in 1 week flat. I loved all the plot changes. Also loved her newer book, Crescent City
  • good so far!!

    By Izzy Timmons
    This book is packed with A LOT. And i mean, its overwhelming and hard to think about, buttttt, IT IS AMAZING. i read this within a week and couldn't put it down!! This book was also the reason why I have low grades in English and Spanish, so make sure u pay attention in class😂. Anywaysss, other than that, which doesnt really bother me, this book is thrilling and will keep you on your toes!! stay safe everyone!💛💛
  • WOW. All I can say is Wow.

    By Katelynsingleton97
    Single handedly the BEST book I’ve ever read. I’ve not a huge reader but I couldn’t put this book down. So many wildly unpredictable twists and turns that had me holding my breath the entire time, skipping over words to race to the next. ACOTAR is truly a work of art.
  • Just get through it

    By KaitSam
    I’m not going to lie, I HATED the first half of the book. The pacing was off, it was boring and the characters also kinda bored me. My sister had to talk to me into finishing it and I’m so glad I did. The last half of the book was fantastic and I became wayyy more interested just based on one character falling into a much larger role. I’m running to go purchase the second book now because I just can’t wait.
