Fae: Review and Promo!

Friday, April 11, 2014

 
FAE (Auri, #2) by Emily White Release Date: February 22, 2014 Paperback, 320 pages Genre: YA / Fantasy / Fiction
Not all fae'ri tales come with a happy ending.
Ella thought taking care of the ego-bloated Mamood god would be a sure way to bring peace to the galaxy and satisfy her taste for revenge.
But she was wrong.
Despite the fact their god is gone, the Mamood refuse to abandon their attack on the planet Soltak and Ella's own so-called friends start to turn against her. And with Soltak dying--its oceans drying up and its plants withering in the ground--Ella and Cailen suspect there's a new enemy at work. As more people die and more water is leached from the planet, they both prepare for something straight from a nightmare.
The fae are coming.

Emily White is a nerd. 
She prefers her men fully clothed and donning bow-ties, her commas British, her books cheesy with big, overly-dramatic explosions, her characters awkward and endearingly real,* and watching her movies in authentic turn-of-the-century theaters. When not exposing her nerdy self to the world, she's creating her own friends and putting them in horrible, yet sometimes humorous situations.
Check out her YA Space Opera series starting with Elemental (Spencer Hill Press, 2012), continuing with FAE (February 2014), and ending sometime in the near future with a book she has yet to write. She's also authored a collection of Steampunk (zombie, werebot romance) flash fiction, if you're into those kinds of things, titled "To Love or Die in a Steamy-Reamy World."

Review:

I loved Ella's character.  I found her strong, intelligent, and brave.  She helps people who hate her and continues to soldier on.  It wasn't so much the plot as her character that pulled me into this book.  I don't know if I could be as strong as her or as willing to help people who were not kind to me.  The other characters emphasized how amazing Ella was and I wasn't too fond of them, overall.  Cailen, on the other hand, is another great character.  I liked how he was always there for her and supportive.  His charisma and kindness had me falling in love with him along with Ella.  The plot includes a lot of destruction, more than a few childhood memories courtesy of Ella, and a handsome warrior.  There are just enough elements of intrigue to make this book hard to put down.   I might just be picky, but I found a few errors in this book that could have been dealt with with a second editing pass, but these don't detract overly much from the book.  This book is ideal for young adult/adult readers.
