I loved Faedra's character. She's wonderfully written and I didn't feel like I was reading a teenager who could have been any other teenage character who suddenly finds themselves in this brand new adventure. She felt and was written totally to feel real to the reader.
Now, maybe the plot essentially has been used by other YA authors but that's not to say that how this plot is written won't draw in readers who have read other YA books. It drew me in and I'm actually hard to draw into YA books these days.
I can recommend this title to any reader looking for an escape from reality for a few hours or more.
When her birthday finally arrives, the mysteries about her past and future are revealed to her through a most unlikely source: a communication from her dead Mother. She discovers that she is a descendent of the Guardian Fae, and that her faithful dog Faen is much more than he seems to be.
As the story progresses, Faedra learns that she is being hunted by the same Unseelie Fae who had pursued her Mother. These dangerous creatures have been instructed by an unknown villain to retrieve the Amulet that is her birthright from her Mother. The Amulet and a magical Fae book hold the power to control weather in both the human and Fae realms.
When all of the crops and trees throughout the human world begin to die at the same time, Faedra and Faen must travel to the Fae realm to locate the powerful book. She has no choice but to accept her Guardian responsibilities and fight to save both worlds.
This is a really cute story. Faedra is a young, innocent girl who cares deeply for her friends and family. She is the sort of sweet girl-next-door that most people will want to pull for. Faen's unbending dedication to Faedra makes him a loveable hero too. Pensy does a very successful job developing the characters and plot.
I think this would be a good book choice for young teens. There is a nice combination of clean dialog, a loving family, courage, loyalty, and a sweet love story. The Fae are not the manipulative, dangerous creatures that we typically find in adult series.Read more ›
Poor punctuation does make a difference.
My main issue was more the amateurish attempt at a teenage romance novel. The author painfully details each step in character interaction. For example, Faedra looks upset. Jocelyn notices and looks worried. Faen notices Jocelyn's face and follows her gaze to Faedra's face... Come on.
New writers seem to make one common mistake: they make each character overreact in order to manufacture emotional involvement, using words like "pure fury," and phrases like "pride seeping from every pore." Both of which are in this book. The dialogue was ridiculous as well, entirely too stilted and awkward. It reminded me of reading the literary endeavors of a high school student.
It reads like a very poorly written and laughable romance novel.
The storyline has its merits, but I cannot recommend this novel to anyone who values their time.
My biggest qualm with this book is that although the book started out with some depth and time taken to really set the scene and get a feel for everyone and everything involved, it fell flat towards the end and felt rushed. The adventures in the fairy realm were passed over quickly and gave the reader very little substance. I was expecting 50+ pages of them adventuring to find the Lord of the Woods, and then them taking time to figure out the location he described...it was all too easy. Most fantasy books are about the adventure of getting to place, not just the destination and this was just lacking at the end.
On a positive note, the author is very good with descriptors and you do get a very good feel for what places and people look like. Occasionally this gets a little over the top and extensive but it doesn't detract from the book as a whole. The few grammatical errors and run-on sentences are easily forgivable and there aren't enough to worry about or bother me - the author has done a pretty good job of checking her own work (as indie authors have to do). The story itself is easy to read and I read it in under a day. If I could be sure the next one didn't rush the end I would buy it, but not sure if it will be more fleshed out and less hurried than this one.

A story that attempts to create a fantasy adventure but struggles to fully develop the story line enough to capture the reader.Published 7 months ago by Lily Rose
The book started out on a sad note but gave a bit of a background, then zipped into the story. It has a lot of Norse mythology, which I had ran into in another book. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Ter
