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 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 dangerous place Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse or she will lose him forever

    Clearly I'm in the minority here DNF at 30% because I just got fed up with things moving at a snail's pace and NOT MAKING SENSE AT ALL This was one of the most uncompelling versions of Beauty and the Beast that I have ever read The writing is nothing outstanding there was nothing that moved me I felt Cruel Beauty among other BB retellings I've read this year and last have done a far superior job at moving me emotionallyLook I'm sure by the end of the book all the things tie together and everything's just dandy and things will make sense and I'd be like ooooooh so that's why Me I don't care Ain't nobody got time for that I have so many questions and I'm just fed up This is not a retelling of Beauty and the Beast This is a book about a girl who gets to live an easy life with a guy who's implied to be a gorgeous Fae underneath his maskThe original story makes sense here's roughly how it goes Handsome prince is cursed to be ugly unless he gets a chick to fall for him Flash forward there's Belle's dad Belle's dad wanders into Beast's castle and touches his stuff Beast doesn't like the fact that Belle's dad touched his stuff Beast is going to kill Belle's dad unless he gets Beast some pussy Belle's valiantly steps in to save dad Beast is as nice to her as much as a hairy ugly self conscious socially ostracized monster can be Belle is treated like a princess because Beast really really fucking needs her to save him and his people before the curse runs outThere's a reason Belle is treated like the queen Things make sense They have to learn to trust one another Things are slowly developed an built over time There is a hideous beast who is scarred emotionally and a beauty who needs to look past the exterior There is a point Not so with this book Things are far far too easy with this bookNow here's this version of Beauty and the Beast a retelling that tries to be bad ass and fails completely from the little that I have readThere's Feyre who has a pretty crappy life with an absentminded worthless spineless dad and two of the most bitchy ungrateful sisters in the entire world She slaves for them she hunts food for them she works her ass off for them Without her their family would starve They don't care I feel some pity for her but she acts like so much of a martyr that there's only so much I can takeWhile hunting one day Feyre kills a wolf well surprise surprise that wolf turns out to be a Fae in disguise In return for this kill Feyre is taken by a wolf who's a Fae in disguise away from her family “What is the payment the Treaty requires?”His eyes didn’t leave my face as he said “A life for a life Any unprovoked attacks on faerie kind by humans are to be paid only by a human life in exchange” A life for a life Oh no Is she going to die? That's what a life for a life means right? WRONG Feyre is taken off to magical Fairyland to live in luxury for the rest of her life while her family is taken care of back in their little village “Some would say it’s unwise to insult a Fae in his home” Tamlin ground out “Some would say you should be grateful for me finding you before another one of my kind came to claim the debt for sparing your life and then offering you the chance to live in comfort” So what? Why? This makes no sense at all Feyre kills one of their kind A beloved brother In exchange there is absolutely no punishment whatsoever She gets to live in a fantastically fabulous castle waited on by servants She gets beautiful clothes and delicious food Another useless answer I dug into my breakfast savoring each rich sip of tea and she slipped into the bathing chamber When I was done eating and bathing I refused Alis’s offer and dressed myself in another exquisite tunic—this one of purple so deep it could have been black Clearly there is some kind of a setup involving The Treaty since there seems to be a lot of secrecy between the Faebut wait whatever information she wants the Fae revealsthey're revealing their own weakness to Feyre who is constantly plotting her own escape It doesn't make any sense “There is a sickness in these lands Across Prythian There has been for almost fifty years now It is why this house and these lands are so empty most have left The blight spreads slowly but it has made magic act strangely My own powers are diminished due to it These masks”—he tapped on his—“are the result of a surge of it that occurred during a masquerade forty nine years ago Even now we can’t remove them” Over and over and over the Fae reveal their secrets to her including one that might help her escape “So there are faeries who will actually answer any question if you trap them?” Maybe they’d know how to free me from the Treaty’s terms“Yes” he said tightly “The Suriel But they’re old and wicked and not worth the danger of going out to find them And then pretty much the next chapter she goes out AND IMMEDIATELY FINDS THESE MYSTERIOUS CREATURES WHAT THE FUCKI do not like it when things come so easily to a main character and everything comes easily to Feyre There is no consequence whatsoever to her actions There is no punishment to her deed of killing The Fae are supposed to hate herit doesn't feel like it because she is inconsequential In fact they're of her playmates than her wardens The Fae seem to have no other things to do besides play with her and hunt with her “My morning work was postponed” he said Indeed his usual tunic was off the baldric gone and the sleeves of his white shirt had been rolled up to the elbows to reveal tanned forearms corded with muscle “If you want a ride across the grounds—if you’re interested in your new residence I can take you” And teach her how to read and writebecause Feyre cannot read or write an ironic twist to the Disney Belle's love for reading “I could help you write to them if that’s why you’re in here” Feyre is irreverent ungrateful and insulting to her wardensin a way that gets her no punishment whatsoever “Do you ever stop being such a prick?” I snapped backDead—really truly I should have been dead for thatBut Lucien grinned at me “Much better” As I said I'm sure this book improves in the end but from what I've read this book makes no sense the writing is emotionless the characters are flat the main character unrealistic and I do not care to continue
