Quotes & Awards

  • “A gorgeously written tale as lush and romantic as it is ferocious… a journey through glimmering lands and into a terrifying, dark court of nightmares. Absolutely spellbinding.”

    Alexandra Bracken, New York Times bestsellling author

  • “Enchanting, spellbinding, and imaginative…The world-building is stellar, as only Maas can imagine it.”

    USA Today

  • “Suspense, romance, intrigue, and action. This is not a book to be missed!”

    Huffington Post

  • “Takes on the classic Beauty and the Beast tale, with Maas’ fantastic spin on it.”

    Paste magazine

  • “Maas draws themes and plot points from several fairy tales, fueling a well-developed world and complex relationships… Feyre [may seem] hopelessly outmatched, but her grit and boundless loyalty demand that her foes—and readers—sit up and pay attention.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The sexual tension and deadly action are well-supported by Maas’ expertly drawn, multidimensional characters and their nuanced interpersonal dynamics.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Jennifer Ikeda gives voice to a spellbinding tale of love, adventure, and discovery. She brings a colorful cast of faeries, high fey, and monstrous creatures to life with subtle voicings, impeccable timing, and excellent character differentiation…Ikeda paints the archvillain, Amarantha, beautifully, using a spiteful, mocking tone. She renders Tamlin, the high-fey hero, first with a hateful countenance, then ultimately with the soft loving persona of Feyre’s potential lover.”

    " Overall Assessment: Wow. I could.not.stop. listening to this book. I found myself devising ways in which I could listen to this book as much as possible and finished it in only 2 days (it was a 16 hour book!). I would not classify it as YA, but NA because there are a few steamy scenes. More steamy than other YA novels, but tastefully done and not overly graphic. Just be prepared for a little more romance than usual. What I liked: – The narration by Jennifer Ikeda took me a couple chapters to get used to. Her voice wasn’t annoying and there was nothing in particular that bothered me, it just took a little while to get used to the cadence of her voice. Once I did though – she blew me away. Emotion surged out at just the right places, and she gave each character an easily distinguishable voice. – Feyre is a strong and likeable character. She has her flaws (hot tempered, impulsive), but she is also loyal and feirce. I really appreciate that Maas didn’t make Feyre the typical heroine, nor the damsel in distress. You know the heroines I am talking about – good at everything they try, super humble, prettier than everyone else and has no idea, everyone wants to get in their pants, etc. Feyre is a skilled hunter, but she taught herself at the age of 14 through trial and error. She didn’t pick up a bow and become a prodigy – she is skilled, but had to work for it. She is described as beautiful, but not mind-blowingly breathtaking. She is on the brink of starvation, so when we first meet her she has sharp features and sallow skin. Feyre also can’t read. I love flawed heroines, it makes their victories mean so much more. – The building relationship between Feyre and Tamlin. I love that it wasn’t all “OMG I’ve never connected with anyone before but with one touch from you I can’t control myself”. It took time for Feyre to learn to love him. I know some may consider this a spoiler, but come on. You knew it was coming, right? TBH I’m not really shipping them together though. We’ll see what comes next, but I feel like Maas is building toward something else. – The pacing of the story was perfect. There were lulls in the action, but the lulls led to interesting character developments and insights into Feyre’s mind. – Steamy scenes. As I mentioned above, there were some pretty hot and heavy scenes. – Supporting characters were strong as well. I love Lucien; I can’t wait to discover more of his backstory. – The ending. THAT ENDING. TLDR; Strong heroine, a good amount of romance, likable characters, unique story. If you like this review please check out my blog at ChandaReads dot Com for more like it! I was given a digital copy of the audiobook from eStories in exchange for a review. "
