Review by: Krizia Anna Lazaro on May 24, 2012 :
This one is much better than the first novella. Things were better explained and the plot thickens. However, it was too short. I really liked to read more and I would like to see progress or coming-of-age for Jensen.

A really good book. I like this one best so far out of the three, the trilogy. I recommend it.

Review by: Kim Deister on Jan. 12, 2012 :
Limerick is the second book in the trilogy and my favorite. This is novella-length, at roughly 55 pages, but, in my opinion, the length does not detract from the story. The story is full and the characters are fully formed.

There is far more action than romance in this book, but that fit with the direction of the story. I like that this book doesn't necessarily follow the "good vs. evil" formula of most fantasy. There is that theme, of course, but the lines aren't clearly drawn. There were times when those who were supposed to be "bad" were cast as "good" and vice versa. It kept the story interesting and the plot engaging. Definitely a little bit darker. Next up is Oathbound.

Review by: Anjelika Thea on Oct. 26, 2011 :
Limerick suffered from much the same problems as Shimmerspell. Once again, it could have used a good editor. It needed proofreading due to the misuse or absence of punctuation marks, most notably the missing commas in direct address. It read more like theater scenes following a storyline but missing the props and the scenery i.e. background details and other fillers. If the author had taken the time to flesh out each scene, and taken the time to develop the characters, it would have made for a more satisfying read. Once again, due to the absence of the above, the pacing was rushed. The plot was weak. It kind of reminds me of the plots of a TV show episode - superficial and easily tidied up. There were some things left unexplained in both the first novella and this one.

What I did like about it were how the "dragons" were portrayed, which was quite unique. And Jensen's voice. I also thought that the voices of the characters were pretty close to teenager-like, as was Jensen's reactions to the discoveries about Liam and Dermott.

Jensen has been left, alone and abandoned, with her newly found wizard father, Dermott. She's still a little lost without Lauren who seems to have vanished into thin air. Liam, her new faerie boyfriend, has been trying to keep her distracted, but Zoe's twin sister Shelby, wants her boyfriend back, and she'll do everything she can to break the tentative bond Liam and Jensen have built. Throw into the mix stalker dragon boys and a secret that Zoe hasn't shared, and Jensen's life is about to get real interesting. And on top of it all, Brennen has taken a real interest in her safety or lack of it.

Limerick by Kimberly Spencer is an excellent addition to her Faerie Tale Girl series. In this addition, Jensen finds her life turned upside down first by Shelby and Liam, then she overhears a conversation between Dermott and (she thinks) Lauren. Why would he lie and say he hasn't heard anything from her? Then, Brennen, the siren with the magical voice, keeps popping back into her life, and she sooo doesn't need him. And she's recently noticed stalkers, of the male variety, looking surprisingly a lot like dragons. A few weeks ago, the thought would seem ludicrous, now it is more than likely and alarmingly all too real. What is going to happen in her life next? Once again, I'm left hanging and wondering...

Limerick was a fast fun little read, just what I needed between books. It's novella length, and I'd recommend reading Shimmerspell first, it lays down the foundation for the series (click here to read my review). I had fun with this short story, and can't wait to take a peek at the next in the series, Lore, which is actually an inbetween story within Books 1 & 2. Triquetra, Book 3 in the Faerie Tale Girl series should be released sometime in September 2011. It's my opinion that Kimberly Spencer is an author to watch, I've fallen for her series. The only thing that could make it better is a tiny bit of editing, not that it really matters to the story. This is a sweet little YA paranormal romance that I'd recommend to all YA lovers, so much fun. Kimberly Spencer's books can be found at B&N, Amazon, and Smashwords. 5 out of 5 fairy kisses for this short little novella from this reader.
