Rating : 2 hearts
Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.
First of all I’m going to start by telling you that I love Sarah J Maas, it hurts my heart to put a note like this to this book but frankly it took me two weeks to read it, I didn’t get into it at all and I didn’t liked Feyre and Tamlin. I think this book is much too slow and I hung on to the end from the moment Feyre is under the mountain.
The setting is nice but too long and I really hated Tamlin, I don’t find this character endearing.
Feyre is strong and independent but even that didn’t touch me more than that. Nesta is really unpleasant. Honestly I’m not going to lie to you I had a hard time, so I’m not going to dwell on it.
In any case, you should know that the end caught up with enough things that I want to read the rest one day.
Quick Word: A first tome that didn’t thrill me at all.
Tout d’abord je vais commencer en vous disant que j’adore Sarah J Maas, ça me fait mal au cœur de mettre une note comme celle-ci à ce livre mais franchement j’ai mis deux semaines à le lire, je ne suis pas du tout rentrée dedans et je n’ai pas aimé Feyre et Tamlin. Je trouve que ce livre est beaucoup trop lent et j’ai accroché à la fin à partir du moment où Feyre est sous la montagne.
La mise en place est sympathique mais trop longue et j’ai vraiment détesté Tamlin, je ne trouve pas ce personnage attachant.
Feyre est forte et indépendante mais même ça ne m’a pas plus touché que cela. Nesta est vraiment désagréable. Franchement je ne vais pas vous mentir j’ai eu du mal, donc je ne vais pas m’éterniser.
En tout cas sachez que la fin a rattrapé suffisamment de choses pour que j’ai envie de lire la suite un jour.
En bref : Un premier tome qui ne m’a pas emballé du tout.
