A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas is one of my favorite series that I was introduced to by BookTok. I really love this series and I think it’s a great story to read if you like fantasy, faerie stories, and some political games.
With a series like this, with so many twists and turns, I cannot do into details about the plot because I don’t want to give anything away. So, below I will have the summary of Sarah J Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses that you can read that won’t give spoilers for the whole series.
I also want to post a disclaimer that this is definitely an adult romance book, there are sex scenes and things of that nature. So, just keep that in mind friends.
Book One Summary
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.

Other Books by Sarah J Maas
Sarah J Maas also wrote the Throne of Glass series, which is her first book series, as well as the Crescent City series, which is still in development.
This series is not yet finished, so there should be a new book coming soon-ish. Right now, there is not yet a release date for the next book, but I am hopeful that there will be soon. Also, the rights were bought to turn this into a TV show on Hulu, which I am super hyped about! I cannot wait to see where that will take us.
