Gr 9 Up—When 19-year-old Feyre kills a wolf in the barren woods near her home in Prythian, she thinks it might be enough to help her family survive another long winter. Instead, a monstrous creature soon comes to the cottage, accusing Feyre of murder and demanding she returns with him to the Fae realm as payment for the life she took. Feyre finds herself held on a lavish estate belonging to an elite Fae creature known as Tamlin. Over the course of her captivity, Feyre soon learns that life in the Fae realm can be as much of an opportunity as a punishment.
When her feelings for Tamlin shift from loathing to lust, Feyre also realizes little will be able to keep them apart—not even the threat of evil lurking on the borders of the estate. Something that has cursed Tamlin for centuries may destroy him and his realm if Feyre can’t find a way to stop it. Maas follows up her “Throne of Glass” novels (Bloomsbury) with this series opener. Readers will find the author’s trademark blend of action, romance, and witty banter as well as a sexier, edgier tone.
This retelling of “Beauty and the Beast” and “Tam Lin” (with elements from ancient Greek mythology thrown in) has a strong focus on Feyre’s physical attraction to Tamlin, but characters lacking in dimension detract from Feyre’s strengths as a capable but rash heroine. Uneven pacing includes a slow start followed by a game-changing information dump, and then a more action- and less romance-filled second half. VERDICT A weak fantasy with strong romance elements. Good for fans of Maas’s previous books looking for a more mature read.—Emma Carbone, Brooklyn Public Library
