Review

Fairy, Texas is a sleeper that starts out fairly innocuously and then sweeps the reader off on a fabulous ride as Laney and her friends thwart the evil designs of the demons (or are they fairies?) who have singled out Laney as their Yatah. Fairy, Texas is also an inspired coming-of-age story as Laney navigates a new step-family, a new environment, and the attentions of more than one good-looking guy in school. I'm hoping for a sequel to Fairy, Texas, as I really hate the idea that I've seen the last of Laney, Josh, Mason and even Kayla. Fairy, Texas is a great read. ~Jack Magnus

Last Saturday I read Fairy, Texas, what a thrill.
When we meet Laney she's going through a difficult time of not only having to adjust to a new step family, but doing so in a new city, Fairy, Texas . A far cry from her life in the bustling cosmopolitan city of Atlanta.

Together with this, the immediate hatred she feels from her stepsister and the stress of starting at a new school has her thinking things could not get any worse. If only she knew.

I started reading the book around 10Am, and I remember making a late afternoon snack for my much neglected kids and peeling tomatoes for source while trying to turn the pages of my iPad at the same time. That's how badly I needed to find out what happens next.

What I loved best about Fairy, Texas is its engaging and original premise. It felt authentic because although I have read all sorts of paranormal stories featuring everything from vampires to angels and demons and weres and fairies, Margo Bond Collins weaves a tale that gives the super naturals themselves interesting character traits and abilities even as she blends the types together.

The pace was great because despite the fact that it was a whole 218 pages, there is no drag. There are fresh angles and twist every couple of pages that keep the story moving forward at a moderate to a fast pace, action was thrown in, keeping things lively, teen angst and lots of lovely chemistry.
There was just enough of everything in here to keep you from putting the book down, and I was quite disappointed when it came to its inevitable end early evening.

High school is hard enough, but for Laney, her high school days have changed drastically. She's from metropolitan Atlanta, a modern city filled with everything she loves, friends, activities, her mom. Then her mom marries her old boyfriend from years back. Goodbye modern city. Hello, a small Texas town in the middle of nowhere that goes by the name of Fairy. And that's not the only weirdness about this town. Will Laney figure out how to stop the craziness before it destroys her?
Margo Bond Collins entertained us with her sassy ghost from Waking Up Dead. She's back with another tongue-in-cheek paranormal mystery, and this female doesn't let anyone get her down for long. Right from the very first page, the reader feels a lot of empathy for Laney. Who wants to get stuck in a town so small, everyone know everyone else's business – 10 seconds after it happens? As if that's not bad enough, two hotties have their eye on Laney, and her nasty tempered stepsister likes one of those guys!
Collins constructs a story where the normal world and paranormal beings intersect in a struggle for survival. Laney is caught in the middle, the prize for both sides of this battle. Every word weighs in with strength. Each chapter brings new revelations, and Laney's sassiness grows despite the trouble she's finding. The conclusion leaves you sated and wondering if there's a chance, just a tiny chance, that Ms. Collins will bring us a sequel to this tantalizing novel.
I highly recommend this novel for all lovers of paranormal mysteries.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.

This book looked great from the start because it hit so many of my favorite things: fairies (the classic mysterious and powerful kind, not the cute little Victorian pixies), contemporary/urban fantasy that isn’t a Buffy clone, small towns, and high school stories. Now, many stories with these combinations are not so hot (although I read them anyway). But Fairy, Texas did a fairly original twist and I was definitely entertained by the ride.

So Laney moves to a little town called Fairy in the middle of rural Texas and finds out that, surprise! There are fairies (or demons, or possibly something else—their name for themselves is just The People, because they have The Power, and I did wish that the story had been a little more specific) and they are all very interested in poor Laney for some reason. Now, I thought at first that Laney was just the new kid in town who happens to stumble onto the mystery that no one wants to talk about (the dead boy she finds on her first day of school), but turns out that the fairies actually think that she might be the prophesied Special One.

What I didn’t expect was how funny Laney would be. She’s a little sarcastic and witty but she doesn’t take it too far into snark. She was also smart, and took in new information pretty quickly instead of being confused for long, which kept the plot moving forward at a fast pace. Since Laney sets the tone for the story with her first person narration, it’s important for her voice to be readable. I definitely connected with her from the first page on.
