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.
Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!
Feyre is 19 and providing for her family. Her mother has passed away, her father is crippled and her sisters are too pretty to help around the house. Feyre does what she has to do to get food on the table, she teaches herself how to hunt. Desperate to bring home food, a wolf crosses paths with Feyre. She knows it could be Fae, and she knows it could kill her. Instead, this wolf just watches Feyre, until she sends her arrow flying through the air for the kill shot. What Feyre doesn’t know, is the wolf is Fae, and an ancient treaty signed far before Feyre was born, says a life for a life. Now Feyre is forced to live on a magical land with creatures she thought only existed in fairy tales. Her captor is Tamlin, a powerful fairy who can morph into a horned beast and back to man in the blink of an eye. Fayre’s feelings for Tamlin go from cold and icy to hot and messy quickly. When she finds out an ancient curse is about to damn Tamlin and his people, Fayre must find a way to stop it or Tamlin will be lost forever.
