A Court of Thorns and Roses is the first book in the new adult fantasy series of the same name by Sarah J. Maas.

The novel is retelling of Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore. It follows the protagonist, Feyre who finds herself entwined with faeries after unknowingly killing one.

Official synopsisEdit

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from the legends of her ancestors, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin— one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world; not to mention one of the High Lords of Prythian.

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.




  • Sarah J. Maas began writing A Court of Thorns and Roses in the spring of 2009 and wrote the first draft in about 5 weeks. [1]
"I wrote Book 1—MORTAL— back in 2009. It was one of those can’t-write-fast-enough books—a magic book. I got the idea, and then BAM—I could not stop writing it for the next few weeks. I’m pretty sure it’s still the fastest I’ve ever written a novel..."
— Maas discussing the development of the book
