Review by: Patricia Cushing on Aug. 04, 2014 : (no rating)
Maggie Shayne brings the fairy world to life for adult audiences in Once Upon a Time. It brings the world of fairies to a whole other level from what we read as children in Peter Pan. She gives realism to the magical realm without taking away any of the magic. The fairies, nymphs, and other magic folk in this novel are like the missing link to Lord of the Rings. These fairies don’t grant wishes, make you fly, or take your baby teeth. They are warriors who will defend their land from the forces of evil. I don’t care much for fay folk, but this was a good read and I would recommend it to anyone.

These books follow the path of half fae and half mortal twins Brigit and Bridin. Brigit was raised in an orphanage and Brigit by their enemies. They both had a book called Fairytale of Rush and as Brigit get older she believes it was actually a story so has a harder time following her destiny. Brigit has always known it was fact and the twists and turns in both books are fantastic. I stayed up until 3 in the morning to finish them as they were so gripping.

I have had these books for years and had to take them out and do a refresher read on them . Yep they are still awesome books . I loved the fact that twins separated at birth find love and each other. If you love reading about that then this is the box set for you . Maggie Shayne takes you on a journey from here to a different world so pick up the books and lets go for a ride I think you might like with the Fairies Of RUSH.....
