From the starting sentence we are in the mind of Serena - the angsty, bitter thoughts of a teenage orphan Fey with a chip on her shoulder. The Fey live among us, and have the same problems - money, food, shelter, and plenty of "drama." Oh, also they eventually go insane and starve to death from lack of magic because their home dimension was shattered long ago.
The author's use of language gives a phenomenal view into not only *what* Serena thinks, but *how* Serena thinks and perceives the universe.
The first few chapters introduce us to the three main characters: Serena, Rachel, and Chloe, meeting and being forced to reconcile years of bad blood to confront a prophesied evil. During the tumult of their reunion and manipulation of each other to their own secret ends, the reader is bitten by shark teeth, shoved into the back of an Aston Martin, and catapulted into a fantasy adventure of epic proportions.
Magic, ancient gods, dimensional travel, weapons of lore, and tons of thrilling action enticed me to keep reading and I couldn't put it down. My only sadness is that the story isn't complete, but I'll eagerly await the next installment.
Serena needs a hero. And the person revealed to fill that role turned out to be a surprise, both to Serena and to me. I loved this book, read it in two days, and am anxiously waiting for the rest of Serena, Rachel, and Chloe’s story.
Serena’s not your typical fey. She’s goth and witty, with some very real issues. Who ever heard of a water fey who hated water? When I read fantasy, I expect otherworldly struggles, but what kept me grounded in the story was how human Serena was. She struggled with her past mom issues and losing someone close to her, while she worried about make-up, clothes, and boys. I could relate to the constant and very real tension between Serena, Rachel, and Chloe. I liked the way Serena was pulled toward both Gramm and Lance, without it being a corny love triangle.
Going into the story, I had a little fey background knowledge, but MK Smith did such an amazing job of bringing myths and legends to life, I forgot Serena’s world isn’t a place I can visit. That she isn’t a girl I can know. And that just makes me sad. Can’t wait to read the next installment.
Serena's Fall is an excellent start to a new series , and leaves the reader wanting more. The world building is good , but I wanted more of the history and scope of the fey world. I'm sure that will be included in future installments , but it left me wanting a bit more elaboration. It is, however, filled with fun quips and fresh humor, and many charming moments.
The character development is good , and what at first seem to be stereotypical angsty teenagers , gain depth as Serena starts to get past some of her old angers and actually see the perspectives of others and understand their motivations for past actions. There are several characters that I look forward to learning more about in future books including Amanda who runs the home for orphans where Serena lives , Lance the accidental hero with a famous past, the charming shark god Dak, and Gramm whose motivations for his chosen servitude remain shrouded in mystery.
A fun, well-paced read!
The only negative is that the book is only available as a Kindle book. I would have preferred to have a hard copy in my hands but I admit I am old fashioned.
