This book.. Man, this book. I recently finished it you can find the review hereIt's quite possibly my favorite book of the season, if not the year.


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




Page 56 of the hardcover edition:
     Alis herded me into a low-backed chair before the darkened fireplace, and I didn't fight back as she ran a comb through my hair and began braiding it.
    "You're hardly more than skin and bones," she said, her fingers luxurious against my scalp.
    "Winter does that to poor mortals," I said, fighting to keep the sharpness from my tone.

    1. It's such a good book. Hell, it might be better than her Throne of Glass series. Tough call though.

    1. It's kind of a re-telling of Beauty and the Beast, tired in with some fae lore. It doesn't exactly feel like a retelling, but it does have similarities to the fairy tale.

    1. I hope you give my review a read. It's pretty spoiler free. The things I tell about the book that aren't in the synopsis are things that are told pretty early on. Have an awesome weekend. :)
