A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

genre: NEW adult fantasy

In order to provide for her destitute family, Feyre has become a hunter - and she's very good and very focused.  When desperation leads to her to kill an animal that's more than it seems, Feyre is taken from her home to the land of faerie - where humans are most unwelcome.  With a shape-shifting captor (who of course is also incredibly handsome in his faerie-form) and a stubbornness and strength that will either allow her to earn her freedom or get herself killed, Feyre knows one fact: nothing is what it seems.

This story engaged me really quickly.  It's a mesh of Beauty and the Beast and Tam Lin, which worked great for me.  It's violent and sometimes more racey than I'd anticipated but the plot moves along quickly and Feyre is an intriguing character.  I liked the secondary characters a lot also and even though it was vaguely predictable, I enjoyed this read enough to continue the series.
