I didn't find the plot extremely wonderful, but I did like it and it didn't get in the way of the characters as sometimes happens.
I skipped one or two of the sex scenes, just because I don't normally care to read them, not because the author wrote them badly.
The only thing I got tired of was the main characters saving each other constantly. She saves him, then he saves her, then she saves... Might be my imagination, but it seemed to go back and forth throughout the book. It was getting just short of annoying for me. I'll have to read it again to see if it was just me or what.
I was going to give this 4 stars, but that 1 star review just ticked me off. I didn't think it was correct or fair so I'm bumping up to 5 stars to help offset it.
The truth is: I'm not a fairy person To me, fairies are buzzing, excessively happy fripperies like Tinker-belle. I don't like frothy, frivolous females and this could have devolved into a showcase for one.
I'm so glad I read this book. Once into it, I found The Song enthralling. The fairy queen is exquisitely beautiful, a great warrior and tough as nails. An enticing combination. The book is a morality tale, a fight between good and evil where freedom and decency are the prizes. It's a wonderful love story with powerful central figures that you want to root for. The rest of the characters are enthralling, too, even King What's His Name, the bad guy.
At one point (22% on my Kindle), I thought, Can I finish this book? Will my heart give out if I keep reading? There's so much action and excitement that I had to put the book down for a while. But I kept reading, and the thrills kept spooling out until the very end.
The Song of the Fairy Queen reminded my of George R.R. Martin's work and his wonderful fantasy kingdoms. This is first rate fantasy and I highly recommend it.
I do have one question, which is more of an intellectual one than critical. How'd the Bad King get so bad? Was he a bad seed? A rotten apple? The product of an abusive childhood? I'd like to see why he turned out that way.
Now to charge on to Valerie Douglas's other work. I'm glad she's written a lot.
Kyriay is an amazing character with a quirky personality and a fierce protectiveness for all that she loves. Morgan is fighting for the survival of his rightful king and heir to the throne, as well as trying to help Kyriay protect her people as well. The story involves a ton of twists and turns, it seemed like it way maybe one too many for my taste, many times jumping along and ahead with no transitioning to help me adjust to the new setting/time. The ending makes up for it ten-fold with a truly epic conclusion. I would have liked to see more of some of the secondary characters and their relationships along the way though.
Let me tell you that I totally enjoyed this book. I couldn't stop reading it. I couldn't sleep until I finished it. I fell in love with every character, suffered every pain they suffered, cried for their deaths and sacrifices. I hated the one, when Morgan was actually able to build another life without Kyri. But then you saved their love again. You almost killed me, when I read "She was gone" in page 490.
And I cried again in chapter 70.
I read this in my Kindle, but I definitely am going to buy this book, so I can have it as part of my collection. Thanks so much for this piece of work. It's just wonderful, awesome!! There are some grammatical mistakes. Besides that, GREAT JOB!
Please keep writing and all the best for you!
