Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A deadly plague and other horrors are sweeping the Faerie realm, and evil Lord Hairstreak is probably responsible. When Henry Atherton, who is thought to have the power to end the plague, reluctantly returns to the realm, Queen Holly Blue and Henry face extreme dangers as each tries to rescue the other. Well laced with humor, the third, equally exciting adventure in the Faerie War Chronicles is a fitting follow-up to The Purple Emperor (2004). Grades 6-8. --Sally Estes

Review

'A crossover title from which few readers of any age would wish to cross back. Brennan writes with all the dash of an Irish storyteller at the peak of his form. Inventive as Harry Potter, dark as Gormenghast and as intelligently probing as Philip Pullman, here is a title to brighten the dreariest of winter days' Independent (Praise for Faerie Wars) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

A professional writer whose work has appeared in more than fifty countries, Herbie Brennan is enjoyed by children and adults alike -- sales of his books already exceed 8 million copies.

Herbie has an well-established career writing for the children's market -- from picture books to teenage fiction, from game books to school curriculum non-fiction. His keen eye for novelty, both in technology and market development, made him among the very first writers to create adventure gamebooks and his GrailQuest series was an international bestseller.

His teenage novel, Faerie Wars, also rocketed to international success, achieving best-seller status in more than 20 overseas editions, and was voted No 1 Top Ten Teenage Pick in the United States and listed as a New York Times Best Seller title.

Equally prolific in the adult market, Herbie has a powerful reputation for challenging conventional assumptions with penetrating intelligence and a clear, easy style. This is reflected in his interests, which range from transpersonal psychology, spirituality, reincarnation and psychical research to comparative religion and quantum physics. His reappraisal of ancient history has stirred lively debate on TV and radio as well as in the Press. He broadcasts and lectures regularly throughout the UK and Ireland.

Herbie became interested in mysticism as a child and was studying books on the subject virtually from the time he was able to read. He found himself pursuing several unorthodox lines of research, including hypnosis, and actually hypnotised his first subject -- a school friend -- at the age of nine!

He began a journalistic career at eighteen and at twenty-four became the youngest newspaper editor in his native Ireland. His early career path included magazine work, hypnotherapy, counselling, advertising and market¬ing.

His first book, Astral Doorways, an exploration of out-of-body experience, became a specialist best-seller and went on to become a classic in its field -- it is still in print some thirty-five years on.

In his mid twenties, Herbie had his first novel published, an historical romance brought out by Doubleday in New York. At the age of thirty he decided to devote most of his time to writing and has since gone on to produce more than 100 books, many of them international best-sellers.

When he can be persuaded to take a break from his writing, Herbie give lectures and seminars, which have included modules on reincarnation research, the astral plane, dreamwork, healing, spiritual development, psychical research, quantum physics and magical training..

With a background that includes writing for radio, the creation of boxed games and computer software, perhaps his greatest strength lies in the realm ideas, particularly in the diversification of publishing product into electronic form.

Format: Hardcover
Henry Atherton has been desperately trying to forget about his friends in the Faerie Realm for the last two years, which is a bit hard considering his responsibility of looking after Mr. Fogarty's abandoned house and temperamental cat. It is while tending Hodge that Pyrgus and Nymph make a sudden reappearance.

Only...Pyrgus has aged considerably due to a mysterious disease running rampant throughout Faerie that is causing them to grow old at an alarming rate.

With very little persuasion, Henry plunges back into Faerie to aid the realm in the search for a cure. But soon he finds himself far, far away from The Purple Palace and in a desolate land with only an intelligent and primitive blue-skinned boy for company. Now it's a race against time to find a miracle that will save all of Faerie...

Old enemies, new friends, and an age-old battle are all mixed in with lovable and familiar characters to make up a thrilling conclusion to the riveting story that began in Faerie Wars. As Brennan's characters have grown and matured, so has his writing. Unfortunately, some characters aren't as present in Faerie Lord as they were in previous books, but the story line has more than enough drama, suspense, and mystery to make up for it.

Though readers will be sad that Henry, Pyrgus, and Blue's adventures have come to an end, the ending is one that is more than satisfying.

Format: Hardcover
If you're like me, you couldn't stand the page-long chapters and countless viewpoint changes of the Purple Emperor. Ruler of the Realm was a great improvement but still left something to be desired. Yet this fourth book in the Faerie Wars series, Faerie Lord, goes back to the original style that made Faerie Wars so fun to read. There are only a few characters to follow, the narratives all converge, and unlike in the other books, these narratives are all worthwhile - they all lead to something. There's just the right amount of tension, just the right amount of mystery, and as always, plenty of wild adventure. Fans of the series should definitely pick this one up.

I have enjoyed the rest of this series so when this came out, I got it right away. I liked it, but the plot was a little wierd at times (although better than I thought with the plot synopsis I read) and it wasn't written as well as the other books in the series in my opinion.

As far as would I buy it, yes, in a heartbeat, if nothing else then because it finally gives you good closure to the series. Reccommended from me, but not highly reccommended.

itle: Faerie Lord by Herbie Brennan

Pages: 430.

Time spent on the "to read" shelf: 1 year.

Days spent reading it: 4 days.

Why I read it: To finish up the Faerie Wars Chronicles. I was very impressed with the last 3 installments, and this is the concluding chapter.

Brief review:
Faerie Lord is the final installment of the Faerie Wars series. I loved the first three books and looked forward to this concluding episode. I wrote about Herbie Brennan in my review of Ruler of the Realm. I generally enjoy his style. It is very quick flowing and has tons of great plot twists.

Unfortunately Faerie Lord was not as coherent or creative as the previous installments in this series. The basic plot revolves around a sudden epidemic of a time disease. The disease was interesting, it basically stole the future of the person who was infected a few years at a time. It is a little more complicated than that, but I'm having trouble explaining it, so I won't. How will Henry and the gang respond to this epidemic? Will they be successful or will the entire realm be infected and die in a few years? Only time will tell.

This book had twists, but they were not very smooth. The overall plot came together, but was not well developed in my opinion. I think Herbie Brennan can be a great writer, I read a review that said this book felt rushed. That's exactly how I felt once I saw those words. There was much more that could have been done to make this a great book. Instead, it was only a decent conclusion to a great series.

I would recommend this book to people who enjoyed the series, but don't expect it to be as good as its predecessors.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have ordered Faire Lord three times and the first two times have received the wrong book. I have returned the last book for a refund. Both books were recorded wrong on the back by the company I purchased them from. They were coded as Faerie Wars the first book. So far all the books in this series have been very good. I hope this third order for Faerie Lord is coded correctly.
