Review "A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas"

Feyre is a huntress.

She thinks nothing of slaughtering a wolf to capture its prey. But, like all mortals, she fears what lingers mercilessly beyond the forest. And she will learn that taking the life of a magical creature comes at a high price...

Imprisoned in an enchanted court in her enemy's kingdom, Feyre is free to roam but forbidden to escape. Her captor's body bears the scars of fighting, and his face is always masked - but his piercing stare draws her ever closer. As Feyre's feeling for Tamlin begin to burn through every warning she's been told about his kind, an ancient, wicked shadow grows.

Feyre must find a way to break a spell, or lose her heart forever.

I was debating if I should start this series or tackle my tbr pile for Apollycon. Well obviously I chose reading this series and I loved it. It is totally different from Throne of Glass but I loved in non the less. 

What is this book about. 
This book focuses on Feyre. She is a human huntress. Her family lives in poverty. She is the only one providing for her father, and two sisters. While hunting she killed a wolf, not knowing that the wolf was actually fae. And that by doing so she signed her own life away. 
A great warrior shapeshifting fae came to claim her in the middle of the night. She has two choices die or come and live with him for the rest of her live. 
This is the beginning of Feyre's journey.  As she's getting accustomed to living with immortal fae, she learns that there is a sickness claiming the land. And as it turns out she might be the one to save all of Prythian. Will Feyre figure out the game the high lords are playing and will she be able to win and save them all? Or will she break during the process....

What did I love about this book
I loved the building of this world. I really liked Feyre's  journey. I do feel like the first part of the book was a bit slow but I understand why it was necessary. Sarah does a good job of building a world, giving enough details that it paints the picture without is being to dragged out. The phase of the book really changed during the last part of the book. It's when all the action happened. 
I find it hard to write a review because I feel different about this book than I did when I first finished it. The next book changed how I feel about this one. I still love it don't get me wrong but I look at the characters differently now.
