Patricia Bossano's Faery Sight: Faerie Legacy Series Book 1 is a lush narrative that stirs the imagination in perfectly coordinated waves, leaving her readers desperate for more. Powerful and gripping right from the start, Faery Sight opens with a storm rolling in, perfectly paralleling what's happening in the human lands. The medieval-style world Bossano depicts is in a state of flux, in mourning after a tragic accident stole the life of their king. But that is merely the tip of the iceberg, for the story and setting are carefully and cunningly set, full of as many twists and turns as a country road. Bossano takes her time to fully immerse readers in her world, unafraid of easing them into the meat of her plot. Nature is particularly important in Faery Sight, as is the strength of women, and each of these elements is woven into a beautiful,complex braid that culminates in a magical first installment." -Aimee Carol Dixon for Readers' Favorite
From the Author
She learns the truth of her origins and finds a way to reclaim her royal identity while staying true to her faery upbringing.
Faery Sight is book 1 in my Faerie Legacy series, where I chronicle the lives of key matriarchs in a hybrid (faery-human) family. I hope you'll enjoy this heartfelt snapshot of the journey of characters who, like me, are part of a grand matriarchal clan celebrating the magical relationships between mothers, daughters, and sisters.
Inspired by the experiences and personalities of the women in my family, the series blends fantasy with realism to empower others to redefine and embrace the powerful magic within.

The premise of the story is that Celeste (a human) was born to a mother (Paloma) that had been cursed and could only live life normally in the faery realm, thanks to the magic the faeries sustained her with. In the first few chapters you’re introduced the life that Celeste and her mother lead in their faery home; their cozy home, the beautiful surroundings, the coming of age of Celeste and some of her childhood adventures. Then the story progresses to a more adventuresome tone, Celeste learns more about her mother’s curse and the witch Arantxa, her father’s death, an arranged marriage, and the desire for vengeance that she never knew she needed. Along the way she also encounters love, because no faery story is complete without at least a hint of romance.
I found myself thoroughly enjoying this story with every turn of the page, and honestly, it was so refreshing! Fantasy and faery stories have always been my favorite and I find myself going back to the classics all too often because I can’t find anything new that really draws me in. I can absolutely see myself picking up every book from this series and anything else that Patricia Bossano puts out. In fact, I will be looking for other books from her as soon as I finish writing this review. I definitely recommend Faery Sight to anyone who enjoys stories in this genre. I am also really pleased to have found a series that is appropriate for my pre-teens to be reading; over sexualized faery stories seem to be super rampant these days and I’m really excited to be able to share this one with the young adult readers in my home.
We then learn the backstory as to how they reached Faery territory in the first place. A witch cast a curse upon Paloma, to turn into a frail and grey shell of the woman she once was, almost as a hideous apparition. As an eleven-year-old girl, Celeste felt responsible for what happened to her mother and wanted more than anything to get back to their home, amongst humans. She’s already lost her loving father Bautista and fears she could be on the verge of losing her mother too. It seems extremely stressful for someone so young, but she’s grateful she has a loving sister and faery who understands her troubles. Being a human in a faery realm has its challenges, but she and her mother are both welcomed as special guests. As Celeste grew older, she came to a realization that living amongst faeries might be the best opportunity that can become of her life. She shifts her focus from trying to go back home to become part of her new world.
Living life as a faery seemed like an amazing journey. It was necessary to be shrunken to 10 inches as “a normal faery height” to enter Handi Park and to participate in solstice celebrations was fascinating. Overall, I found this book granting permissions to take a moment to view the perspectives of a fantasy world, which tends to do similar things of members in our real society. It has been a very positive outlook, displaying that anything is possible if you have the level of enthusiasm and determination as of these two young ladies. I recommend anyone who would enjoy a good fantasy book full of faery tales and adventures to give this book a chance, you might enjoy it as well.
