Faerie Tale

This book was an extremely fun journey, probably the most exciting of its genre I've read in the past year (next to Passage by Connie Willis)! I especially liked it because it took place in our "real" world but added a fairy tale/fantasy effect. It sort of justified my belief regarding the possibility that such creatures could really exist (although it WAS a fictitious novel). The book was very fun and could almost have been classified as a horror novel in my opinion.

The book's downside for me was when the story started to wander about 2/3 of the way through. I also thought the author threw in some characters and side stories that were irrelevant to the overall plot.

Nevertheless, I'm glad I discovered this book. :)

This was a good dark fantasy set in the modern day. I liked the intermixing of Celtic mythical creatures with twentieth century people. I especially liked how the twins Patrick and Sean learn how to cope in the faerie world.

Kind of a creepy fairy tale, when this family moves into an old house with a fairy circle out in the woods behind the house. Well written, not too "Message" driven. I thought it was more fantasy when I bought it, but it's closer to a horror book.

Usually Raymond Feist writes long, detailed series of books. This book may be a one book read but it is engrossing and a bit frightening in the use of the faerie and the world that we live in. I read it twice it was so good and detailed.
