WOW! What a story! I always used to love reading nursery rhymes but after having read this book I'm not so sure I like them anymore. Are they really the gruesome stories of the Fae? This book is absolutely fantastic. Not only has the author created a terrific, if slightly terrifying, world beneath our own but the two are so intertwined and ingeniously described you can't help but think it might all be real.
That is not your normal approach to faries and was surprisingly very engaging. I was not sure what to expect as the author does not have a lot of books out but the description caught my eye.
I thought I knew my fairy stories, S.L Mason made me question everything. The stories are compelling and suspenseful. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. Can't wait to see what happens next in the storyline!
I loved reading this book! Kept me on the edge of my seat couldn't put the book down!--This text refers to the paperback edition.

The whole Fae world in Trick is based on Irish lore and folktales that have been spun into an intricate web of mystery, intrigue and ancient elven battles against — or for? — humans. You will never hear the words of a nursery rhyme again without wondering what their true meaning really is. This story will keep you entertained from the first word to the last and will make you realize nothing is what it seems.
I highly recommend this book which I couldn't put down. It is one of the best fantasies I've read this year.

Sarah is an ordinary normal girl. She has two loving parents, her very practical and thorough father that prepares her for everything he can, and a mother who loves her daughter but lives in fear over everything. Her father is a military veteran so his preparation skills are top notch and he tried to pass on as many as he could to his 17 year old daughter. She is neither popular nor unpopular, but her best friend Arty says she is pretty and kind. She considers herself ordinary and is perfectly happy with that.
Then one night the Fae came. They killed so many people around the world, and stole thousands of young people. There were dead bodies lying in the streets and they just lined up to be taken away. Sarah and Arty were lucky enough to escape and Sarah’s practical father saved them. Then they had to work out how to stay free and alive when faced with not only the Fae but the remaining humans.
This book was incredibly well written. The style of narration was smooth and natural sounding. The description of the surrounding world was excellent and the characters shone through every word. Sarah is a very interesting character. Her keen mind and determination are blended with compassion and the kindness Arty described.
I loved that this really isn’t a fairy tale re-telling, but a brand new kind of fairy tale, one where the Fae attack the humans on a massive scale and nobody knows why. They come from nowhere with no warning and kill and kidnap. When we finally meet the Fae they are enigmatic, ruthless and arrogant, but they keep saying they have a reason for their actions.
I loved the plot for this book, and I have no idea where it is going next. Each chapter was a fresh and new direction and I loved how unpredictable it was. It felt like a very fresh approach to New Adult fiction with it’s blend of dystopia and urban fantasy. It was an incredibly enjoyable read and I can’t wait to read the next instalment.
In a YA fantasy market drenched in fae worship and love affairs, Mason's book is a snarl of fresh air. The plot continually turns the screw, ramping up the pace and delivering one feisty, gun toting, yet vulnerable heroine. The musical world of the haughty, vain and hierarchy obsessed fae is both ethereal and terrifying, whilst the gladiatorial finale reminiscent of the Hunger Games.
Granted, it would have benefited from one further edit pass, to remove typos, but this pageturner was so entertaining that a 5⭐ rating is a must.
