|All four books of the series.|
This book is the third in a series of four by Aprilynne Pike. I just ordered number four today, curious to see where the story ends.
I cannot say I loved the books (although I do love the cover art!), but they were cute. I enjoyed the idea of a faerie living a human life with all the possible problems you can imagine.
This is definitely a YA series - you know; high school, boy trouble, secrets, exams etc, only with a faerie twist to it. One such twist is trolls with guns of the kind which crashes the most important dance of the year. Why, of course! Who has not seen or heard of trolls with guns, right?!
Now, I did quite like the whole faerie concept. I could truly imagine the fae world Pike was describing. It did sound amazing and magical and I would love to read more about it. And the whole flower thing? I would have given so much to be able to see that!
I will give you one more teaser tonight before I hit the sack, just to give you a touch of humour on the go.
