I don’t know a faerie from a catfish, and don’t get me started on changelings…I mean…what the hell? Give me a real world mystery I can sink my teeth into and I’m happy. Besides, I thought you spelled it fairy!
But that didn’t deter me when deciding to take the plunge and delve into this interesting looking piece of fantasy. I’m big enough to admit that there are other genre’s that I should explore to round out my reading, even if they do include faeries.
I’m certainly glad I did!
This story hooked me from the get go. I was amazed at the intricacies of the fantasy world that Alexia Purdy put together on the pages before me. All of the different characters involved, each with special powers and defenses only available to their particular species.
And attitudes! Yes, faeries have attitudes!
Throw in an adventure or two, a magic quest, wicked queens and some very good writing, and you have an awesome story very much worth reading. I spent a couple of late nights with Shade, keeping her company on her long journey to save the kingdom.
Alexia has certainly cracked open a new realm of reading for me with this amazing story. I highly recommend it!
Five of five stars!
