Since her ‘Throne of Glass‘ series blew up last year in a big way with the release of ‘Heir of Fire, it only makes sense for Maas to deliver a switch-up and give us something different, but not too different. Her upcoming novel explores a new fantasy world with a story loosely based on the classic tale of ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ Cool, right?

Official Summary:

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!
