“Can one mortal take on all of Faerieland?
From USA Today bestselling author Sarah K. L. Wilson comes a deliciously trope-filled young adult romantic fantasy about a viciously humorous mortal girl and her quest to hunt, trap, and conquer powerful fae.
Our lives are nursery rhymes and faerie stories now, Allie.
When Allie Hunter’s twin sister steps through a magic circle into the Faerie realm, she opens the door to deadly fae, bent on causing havoc and harm to Allie’s village.
Rendered blind to all but the spirit world, Allie is frustrated and angry but determined to bring the fae down. No matter what that might cost her.
But in a world where lies are truth, power is sustenance, and every action ripples into violence, how can one mortal stop all of Faerieland?
For lovers of The Cruel Prince and An Enchantment of Ravens comes a world of violent fae royals, trickery, and magic. Grab the first book of this hot new series today! (Goodreads)
I started another series by this author last year and when I found out she was writing a book about fae, I was sold! No questions asked, just give it to me.
Although I love fae, I don’t like all books about them. I wasn’t a fan of The Cruel Prince series but Acotar is my life. Of course, all books with fae are quite different. The fae in this book are deadly predators who love trickery. They are more beautiful than anything you have ever laid eyes on. From the beginning where they were described, I knew this was going to be good.
“I’ve heard every Faerie story there is. And I plan on ruining them all.”
Allie’s sister has been taken and she will stop at nothing to get her back. Little does she know that things will get much worse for her. Honestly, she stayed strong through it all. No freak outs. I would have had a ton!
One of the issues she faces is going blind. Not completely blind as she can see the spirit world, like the fae who lurk around her village. I loved this aspect and thought that it was really cool.
Allie is also quite outspoken and can’t be rather sassy. She had me laughing multiple times.
“I’ll remember that,” I said gravely. No one liked a smug goat, either and yet Heldra was still alive.”
Another interesting thing was how her friend, Olen Chanter a bard, could play music that helped guard them from the wicked creatures. I have never seen a bard used in that way before besides in video games. Go bards!
“The music keeps them back – the Fair Folk. It blinds them – almost like our own kind of glamor. What my father and I do is like guard work. We’re guarding all of you against the Shining Ones. Against the spirit world.”
Let me tell you what I really loved, the cat and mouse games between Allie and Scouvrel. Oh man! It had me giddy.
“I think you mistake how much power you have, little Faerie. You are the one in my cage.”
I’m looking forward to book two and can’t wait to see what the fae and their world have in store for us mortal beings.
