The Faerie Path:Review

The Faerie Path
(Faerie Path Series #1)
by Frewin Jones


Swept away into a court of magic and beauty, she discovers she is Tania, the lost princess of Faerie: the youngest daughter of Oberon and Titania. Since Tania's mysterious disappearance on the eve of her wedding five hundred years before, Faerie has been sunk in darkness and gloom. The courtly Lord Gabriel Drake, who Tania was once to marry, has found her and brought her back.
With Tania's return, Faerie comes alive again as a land of winged children, glittering balls, and fantastic delights. But Tania can't forget Anita's world, or the boy she loved there.

Torn between two loves and between two worlds, Tania slowly comes to discover why she disappeared so long ago. She possesses a singular magical ability and she must use it to stop a sinister plan that threatens the entire world of Faerie.

This book offers great details in the places in takes you, but I felt it lacked in a story line. It just failed to pick up after over a 100 pages into it. That far into the book the author should have been able to hook me and this book never seemed to get me to want to keep reading. It started to feel like a chore.
I did however finish it because I needed to for one of my challenges, but I do not think I will be reading the rest of the series. This sucks because it leaves me about 3 books short for my "fairy" section of the paranormal challenge.

Please if you have any good fairy books shout them out to be. The Faerie Path is getting 2 stars from me and falls into these challenges....

Until next time...
Happy Reading!

Ohhh, I read this one. I felt the same way. Gorgeous cover, though!

Can you read about goblins? I'm trying to remember whether there are faeries in it or not... but one of my FAVORITE trilogies is The Hollow Kingdom Trilogy by Clare B. Dunkle. I listened to them all on CD and LOVED them!
