A Court of Thorns and Roses focuses on Feyre, a nineteen year old huntress who murders a faerie wolf in the woods. After this, she’s drawn into  a world she’s never known. It’s a blend of romance, political struggles, and to die for fantasy adventure. The series has five books in total, gradually getting darker as the genres transition from being labeled as young adult to adult. In total, Maas’s books have sold more than 12 million copies.
