Ever Shade (Dark Faerie Tale #1) Alexia Purdy
A dark twist on Faeries.
For Shade, a chance meeting with a powerful Teleen faery warrior who wields electrical currents and blue fires along his skin has her joining him on a treacherous mission for the good Seelie Faerie Court across the land of Faerie. Magic and malice abound and nothing is what it really seems to be.
The evil Unseelie Queen and her treacherous allies are round every corner as Shade makes her way across the breathtaking landscapes of the world of Faerie, which exists alongside the mundane human world. Shade discovers her own uncharted magic and meets some of the most powerful warriors in Faerie while battling evil dryads, conniving Teleen guards and challenges on her life with every step in a world where nothing can be taken for granted.
I received this book from the author to give an honest review!
The cover is amazing! I love it.
I love reading about faerie's and this book was a great read from me. Now I am giving this book 4 1/2 stars because at times I felt as though some of the story was missing. For example was her bff freaking out when Shade was not there? She never got an answer about the caverns and their use of power. I wanted to know about the scars that she was hiding! Why did she not want to show them to the others? And what ever happened to the guy she met when she was in trouble? Did he ever try to find her or was okay with her leaving him behind? Maybe there will be answers to these questions in book 2.
I liked how the author described the hair of Queen of the Teleen. The characters were well-written and very like able to the point that at times you could find yourself angry at the way they acted. I would say the funniest character for me was Soap! Not only because of his name, but of his personality that was written in the book. The character I loved the most was Dylan! I enjoyed how even though he put on this front of being one of those guys that don't have feelings or are always acting hard deep down inside he was just this sweet guy.
I thought the way that Shade did not fall head over heels in love or do the whole love at first sight! She knew she had feelings for a certain person but she just doesn't act right up on those feelings right away.
My Rating: 4 1/2 wine glasses
