A Court of Thorns and Roses: Sarah J. Maas
About this deal
There’s not much drinking. Feyre drinks faerie wine on multiple occasions. The two main points in the story that I remember is where she drinks wine and is happy; the other occasion where she doesn’t remember anything. As in the previous books, characters use a lot of crude language and swear words -- e.g., "f--k," "s--t," "piss," "pr--k," "bastard," "ass," "hell," "damn." Sometimes as terms of endearment.
Okay, so this is my first time writing a review so I hope this is good. In this review I will try my best to help you decide if you want to read ACOTAR (A Court Of Thorns And Roses). So, let’s begin. I think it wise to read this yourself first, and if you are unwilling to do so, or it's not your style - err on the side of caution and delay a year longer before recommending this to your child. I've just finished it and am happy to let my 15 year old read it. When I was much younger, 12 -13 I discovered much more sexually explicit books and delighted in them, which is all part of growing up. Chances are, if you're questioning if your teenager can handle sexual content - you're too late anyway due to what they've undoubtedly already consumed.I MEAN, SERIOUSLY? We can notice that by ourselves, but Feyre kept comparing and comparing during the whole book. This world occupies the physical space of Northern Europe and the British Isles, but in a very different time. A book with magical powers is written in "no language of this world," which a character calls "Leshon Hakodesh. The Holy Tongue." "Leshon Hakodesh" is a common term for the Hebrew language. Families can talk about how holiday gatherings in A Court of Frost and Starlight are used as a device to tell the story of the people in attendance. What other gatherings are used for the same reason?
Female faeries line to up to be chosen, and after Tamlin chooses, other attendees are free to couple as well. Lucien tells Feyre that if she stays for the rite, Tamlin will claim her, and she won’t like it, as Fire Night is not a night for lovemaking. She would be forced to couple against her will. Of course, Tamlin has to become a traitor. Maas basically did to him what she did to Chaol and Dorian in THRONE OF GLASS. They both become terribad people so Rowan can show up and steal the scene with his earth-shattering orgasms. I guess maybe even the author realized that Tamlin didn't look that bad, so making him into a betrayer was necessary for giving Feyre a clean-cut reason to dump his ass without looking petty. Also, apparently he harbors a sexual assaulter in his court, because in this book we learn that YET ANOTHER WOMAN IN THIS BOOK tried to have her way with Rhys without his consent, and Tamlin just keeps her around... because he's the bad guy now.A wild new take on “Beauty and the Beast” in a world where humans and the faeries who once enslaved them live separated by a wall erected under Treaty.
