  • Give Me, A Tale Of Wyrd And Fae on Oct. 31, 2011

    Enchanting!!!! What a truly wonderful tale, an adult fairy tale... I loved Lilith, I loved how she was compelled by dreams to visit a place that she had discovered existed and I loved her imagination. A fairy tale usually holds a sadness, a sadness that should turn out to be a happy ever after and this story was no exception. The twists and turns of events had me hoping that things would turn out well and I was also quite surprised at the slight misleading Marion, whom I thought was going to spoil the happy ever after!!! I truly loved Cade and the fact he was no 'Prince Charming' in the looks department, I loved his confidence and chivalry, but not as much as Lileth did, obviously! I feel this story would go down well with fairy tale lovers and the fae... fae being the surprising element! It was short, fun and wonderful to read, I loved it!

    As you can see, I haven't rated this book and this is because I don't feel I should. Within the first few pages I was engrossed, it is written really well and I couldn't help but become lost in the story almost right away, however, I didn't realise when I began to read that there was going to be so much detail in it. By this I mean brutal killings (by demons etc) and described in such a way that I thought I was in a horror film. I am smiling as I write this because although I tend to read about death and all of that in the paranormal books, they don't affect me as much as this one did. I avoid horror books, I'm too much of a 'wimp' to generate any stamina to read through scary pages or even watch a scary movie. I believe that Dave Ferraro captured what he wanted others to see and the detail he puts across, in my opinion, is excellent. Those who like this kind of indepth detail will really enjoy it. I am really sorry that I couldn't read further, I managed 4 chapters before feeling rather sickly, that's how good I think his writing is. I have a feeling that for a lot of other people, this book will be brilliant.
  • The Next Thing I Knew on Dec. 08, 2011

    I've never read a book like this before, I think it is more Sci Fi than paranormal but good just the same.. I would have given this 3.5 stars as opposed to 4. I started of by being very very curious, how was a story going to be built upon starting with death? I soon found out... I got to a part where Lucy found out about another species (I don't want to say much because of spoilers) and this part almost made me put down the book, it just wasn't for me but the curiosity on how the book would develop won over... thankfully... I did enjoy this book, different as it was, a good 3.5 stars! I liked the love story, I enjoyed the fun bits, I did have a huge amount of curiosity that kept me turning the pages... but sometimes I could just of easily put the book away. However, I am pleased that I finished the book, a little strange in places for me but it would definately suit Sci Fi fans as opposed to the paranormal genre (just my opinion). The author has written this book well, the plot was amazing when looked at from an overall perspective and the imagination that has gone into the story is out of this world!!
