A Court of Thorns and Roses

by Sarah J. Maas 

Feyre Archeron’s life is about to change drastically. One day, she’s hunting in the woods, in search of food to feed her impoverished family. The next, she’s being dragged through to the land of faerie by a High Lord Fae who has charged her with murder. It does not help that Feyre abhors anything to do with faeries. As she spends more time away from the world she knew, she discovers much of her prior knowledge of faeries was incorrect, and her hatred misplaced. Soon Feyre befriends Fae-folk and garners the interest of the High Lord who captured her. What will happen as she begins to uncover the secrets, lies, and truths held within the land of faerie?
