Quotes from ACOTAR

❤“Pity those who don’t feel anything at all.”

❤“I love you,” I said, and stabbed him.”

❤“I found him carefully studying me, his lips in a thin line. “Has anyone ever taken care of you?” he asked quietly.

❤“I stepped out of the shelter of my savior’s arm and turned to thank him. Standing before me was the most beautiful man I’d ever seen.”


A Court of Thorns and Roses is a story of a young teenage huntress who, as a fulfillment of her promise to her deceased mother, is bound to take care of her family. Her father and two sisters depend on Feyre for survival through their turmoil. The skinny teenage girl struggles daily in the mortal lands, while the north homes Prythian, a vast land of High Fae and Lesser Faeries.

Mortals and Fae have been at war and eventually signed a treaty for peace, now the two worlds are separated by a magical wall that Humans can’t and do not wish to pass by but the Fae may cross using magic. While Feyre hates her miserable life in a cottage, her crippled father and ignorant sisters miss their old life prior to poverty and distress and fail to acknowledge efforts of Feyre to feed them.

Prythian is larger than all the mortal lands combined and divided into courts of Night, Day, Dawn, Winter, Autumn, Spring and Summer, each ruled and run by a High Lord of its own. Completely unaware of the horrors and magics of the Faery Lands, Feyre, as many of the other humans, pamper a deep and intense hatred for the immortal kind. As her days of hunting don’t get any better, she finds herself facing a huge bear-like wolf and realizes she’s in the presence of Fae. The Hatred in her heart and the misery in her eyes surpases her fear and in that moment she decided to shoot her Ash arrow to steal a life, and so she later pays with her heart.

Feyre is taken to Prythian by Tamlin, High Lord of the Spring Court and there she learns of Fae and their ways, and how her entire life has taught her nothing true about the north of the Mortal Lands. Feyre meets other beings of the immortal lands and is amazed by the beauty and the mystery of her current home. During her stay and captivity, Feyre falls for the high lord as Lucien, emissary to the lord is the closest thing she has to a friend. Feyre explores the exquisite and beautiful Fae Land with the Spring High Lord and as the two indulge in their romance, the threat to Prythian rises and destroys their blissful moments.

There is much more to the High Lord of Spring Court than Feyre knows but Lucien and the rest keep well to not let her find out. The eager soul meets adventures even in the lands at the north, Feyre runs into a Puca and survives, captures a Suriel and lives to tell and also faces a Bogge almost all by herself. She drifts off during Calanmai and meets Rhysand and is mesmerized by the beauty of the handsome High Fae.

Amarantha, a wicked Fae up to no good and had cursed Prythian along with the High Lords of All the courts, but the curse can be broken and all of the immortal Faeries and their lands are in the hands of a Fae-hating Human.
