I really did not think that I would like this book. I was wanting to pass time and bought this on a whim. I enjoyed the story and the characters. They were fun and likable and the book was a quick and easy read. I wish there had been a bit more of a darker side to this story but overall I did enjoy it. I will read the rest in this series mainly because it is a nice change of pace when wanting a simple book to read. It is somewhat lighthearted and maybe a little predictable but that isn't always a bad thing, especially if the characters are as fun as these.

I truly enjoyed the world of faeries that Ms. Spear created in The Dark Fae. The world building was well done, the character's strong and the story kept me coming back for more.

Anyone who knows me, knows I love all things Fae. Heck, I even tease my daughters, telling them that my flower bed is a secret faerie garden. When asked by Terry Spears to review The Dark Fae, I jumped at the chance, not to be disappointed. I adored that part of the story took place at South Padre Island...I am from Texas after all, plus I adore the ocean. Deveron and Alicia were fun as guides in their crazy world.

Alicia has always known she can see Fae but she has never known how deeply her sight is implanted in her. When she sees "the evil" dark fae flirting with her best friend, Alicia throws ice cold coke on him. I would have paid to see his face...especially since he is fae royalty. Deveron realizes immediately that there is something different about Alicia. Through several laugh provoking experiments, he figures out that she can see even invisible fae. It doesn't take him long to figure out she needs protection and he is the only one who can help; neither of them know exactly what they are getting themselves into.

While I definitely enjoyed this fantastical tale, I didn't find the world as intriguing as I would have liked. There was something missing that didn't pull me deep into the story.

The Dark Fae was a quick and fun story. I loved the interaction between Deveron, Alicia, and Ritasia (Deveron's sister). They were quirky, quick-witted, and exciting.

*I was given an e-book copy of The Dark Fae by Terry Spear in exchange for my honest review.

The Dark Fae
This is not a full length novel...maybe 150 pages. I read it in a day, but it was very good.

Alicia is able to see the dark fae and like the official synopsis says, she gets herself into a bind by revealing that she can see them...even when they should be invisible to her. She ends up going on quite the adventure through an entirely new world.

I loved all the different fae groups, the dark fae, the sphinx fae, the dragon fae, and more. They all have a symbol that represents their particular group and each group has key characteristics and I absolutely loved learning about them.

My only complaint is that at the end it appeared that the author was trying to wrap it up too quickly. I can't give examples because that would give away pieces of the story that are secret until later, but in the last few pages it just came together too quickly. I would however, love to read more about this world.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!
***Received a code from the author to listen to and review the audio version of the book. I do own this book in ebook form, but haven't read it yet (I definitely will in the future though!)

The cover is awesome and beautiful, and I think it is intriguing to grab anyone’s attention.

Listening to audiobooks is now something my son and I love to do together in the car. He even gets upset if we have to stop it for any reason, or if I forget to charge my ipod. I have collected quite a few audiobooks through the Sync program, and I have won some too, but until Terry asked me to listen and review them, I just hadn’t done it yet. Now that I have tried it, I’m addicted :)

I love how strong Alicia is, and she sticks with her friends no matter what. Deveron (no idea if I’m spelling this right) is one of the guys you start out really wanting to smack, but he grows on you like moss :) lol At the end, I love his character too. The Fae are so fickle, and they do a lot of posturing like they are ….not evil but bullies I guess.

Terry’s stories are always so enthralling when I read or listen to them :) This was my Audible review:

Would you listen to The Dark Fae again? Why?
Yes, it was fun and had lots of action :) Also my son really liked it, so it is great for car rides :)

Who was your favorite character and why?
Alicia was my favorite because she was courageous and didn't let fear dictate what she knew was right. She was fiercely loyal and protects her friends. I love strong female characters :)

What about Jeanne Whitehouse’s performance did you like?
I love how she had several voices she used. Listening to audiobooks takes some getting used to.

Alicia and Deveron, and Cassie and Micala don't know what hits them. Alicia is thrown into a world that she is only aware of in a book that her father had left. But Deveron and his sister Ritisia show her more of the Fae life than any book could. Alicia learns of her Fae heritage and then has to convince her grandfather to let her finish her vacation on pare island.
