This is a really popular book.  And fantasy is not my favorite genre.  Having said that--it's almost a retelling of Beauty & The Beast. Although I never really figured out why the main human character, Feyre, is a big deal.  Even though she is a teenager, and it's a relatively young reading story, it's not for younger readers. I would recommend it to sophisticated upper-high school readers.  There's a lot of language and sex.

Oh, I don't know.  It was ok, just not my favorite.  

From the publisher:
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.

At least, he’s not a beast all the time.

As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

That does sound like a Beauty & the Beast retelling. Thanks for the recap. I think I'll hold off on that one a bit longer.
