This book was my first delve into high fantasy. Now, I love this genre so much. I don’t know why Sarah J Mass is unpopular because I absolutely loved this book. Hopefully the next two books in this trilogy will be just as good: I strongly dislike when the prequels are a let down! (Divergent, for example).
This book was a bit slow moving because of all the adjectives and detailed description. Yet I loved ACOTAR for that reason. It was so beautifully written and the characters were interesting too. I thought, at first, that Elian and Nesta were going to be like the ugly stepsisters – especially with Feyre doing so much work for the family. I was glad to find out that they were better than that. Sarah J Mass is great at character development – at least in some areas (I don’t think Wilan had much complexity but I still liked him).
I didn’t know what to expect from this novel and the corny cover threw me off slightly: “She stole a life. Now she must pay, with her heart” It sounded a bit cheesy but I was thrilled! I cannot recommend this book enough to any new fantasy lovers. After Six Of Crows, I didn’t know what to read next. I really want to get into the fantasy genre and book tuber A Clockwork Reader always has plenty to recommend, though I do not want my TBR to get too overwhelming.
Are there any fantasy novels I should read? What is your favourite genre?
