Awful, trite, boring, Mary Sue dreck, give me a freaking break BAD.Go read Holly Black
This is the first book that I ve read that would be considered feminine And I will tell you it was a journey that I found very, very burdensome at times, and somewhat revealing to the mysteries behind what a woman thinks not really, but I can tell you what I think of the book.Faerie Path is a book full of pretty dresses, a girls fantasy, and and realm of wingless faeries the wingless already knocks it down a star For my self I found the book on the cliche side and somewhat predictable However, [...]
A Midsummer Night s Dream has been re written many times to appeal to the differing audiences, I am hence sad to say, that although it seems many have succeed in making it interesting still, this author failed at it I am not going to force myself to continue wasting my time finishing series I could not stand the first book of it.
The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones is a delightful new take on a true Faerie Tale This story is not only for the young adult but for anyone from age 12 to 99 I absolutely loved this book and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.Anita is a normal teen, long blond hair, slim build and very pretty Mom, dad and Anita share a wonderful home in the suburbs of London She has a wonderful boyfriend who just happens to adore her and a best friend to share all her secrets with.The story [...]
Even though this book is said to be for young adults, I get the feeling that it should be for those of a younger age There were some times that the description was good, but I didn t think I actually knew the character Tania Anita had a perfect background, having found out that she was fairy princess and everything becoming all happy again when she came back But I didn t really get a good picture of who she was as a person The second part seemed to move quicker than the first part, but it still [...]

Puh geschafft KLAPPENTEXT Anita hat sich bereits rettungslos in Evan verliebt, als sie erf hrt, dass sie einem anderen geh rt Anita istnicht von dieser Welt sie ist die verlorene Tochter des Elfenk nigs, der sie in sein Reich zur ckruft MEINUNGDer Klappentext ist am Ende ziemlich irref hrend Denn der Grund ihrer R ckkehr ist ein ganz anderer naja Ich dachte jedenfalls am Anfang, dass die Geschichte spannend klingt und viel Potential hat Diese Grundidee, die dahinter steckt, ist auch der Grund, w [...]
A fairy tale narrated in a style reminiscent of Grimm s fairy tales A predictable plot but nevertheless, a nice and light read Although the recommended age for this series is 12 and above, I doubt any teen from 14 years old will like this series as it s a little too Disney Although there s BGR included, there s nothing questionable, so I will recommend this series to Lyn, my 10 year old daughter For myself, I wouldn t even mind reading on at the very least, I can have fun discussing the story wi [...]
My guess is you would like this book if u like those books about magic and mystery and love Don t worry this book isn t as fruity tooty as it sounds I personnaly read it in about 4 days Anita is a girl growing up in present day London It is her 16th birthday and she receives a mysterious book with no return address Inside it says Faeries tread the Faerie Path Amber trapped though moth wing light they be Mortals stay in mortal world Iron clad with half blind eyes they see One alone will walk both [...]

I picked up this book b c I write MG fiction in this genre There aren t as many YA books that feature faeries so I was looking forward to it I was sorely disappointed Perhaps I ve gotten spoiled by Suzanne Collins and Robin Hobbs They have a way of building a story s tension through to the climax I simply found this story dull.The dialogue was unoriginal and I found myself annoyed with the main character, who has this completely irrational reaction to the guy she is in love with when she thinks [...]
So I ve been looking at this book for years, sitting on the shelf at the Wester Library, and finally decided to give it a read to see if it was worth it to buy the rest of the series While Book 1 gets three of five stars, I actually think the next one might be better by finishing up the world building and getting on with the story a little promptly But here s the scoop, complete with spoilers as usual Five hundred years ago, on the eve of her wedding to Lord Gabriel Drake, Princess Tania of Fae [...]
From the first paragraph I knew the book was not for me.
Ugh This thing is a horrendous, slow moving snoozefest I skipped mass portions of it, as they contributed zilch to the plot The writing is immature and often downright silly, and the major plot point, that Tania Anita has been gone for 500 years, makes no sense, since everyone is the same age now that they were when she disappeared, even though they ve been living their lives while she was gone The whole thing is just excruciating Don t bother.
It started off promising, if not a little whimsical bordering on silly, but I thought well, it IS about faeries so it has to be whimsical maybe EVEN a little silly But then it just got bad First, there was too much back story and too many characters I couldn t keep any of the sisters straight And then there was too much description and I couldn t keep what bedroom tapestry did what in which sister s room and was it even important any No It wasn t Maybe later on in the series, but I won t be read [...]
Looking for a quick read, I picked up The Faerie Path a couple years ago I got a third through, but I was unable to bring myself to finish it For such a thin book, it was an uphill struggle trying to read it The story is just too bland for my tastes The Faerie Path is the stereotypical girl grows into her own sort of story, except there are fairies involved Starting with an unoriginal premise is unfortunate, however I would ve still been willing to read it if the characters were at least interes [...]
Yet another title that I left sitting on my bookshelf for way too long I ve corrected my mistake in waiting such a long time neglecting this title, and can say that I found yet another fey series that I m interested in seeing how it will all pan out With six books in the series I ve got my work cut out for me if I want to see where the rest of the series goes, but after such a wonderful series opener, I don t think I ll find the task very daunting.I will start out by admitting that I may have fo [...]
This is gonna be a short one Before I read the book I was like I m not gonna like it, I hate the extra girly books ,it s about fairies But when I read it I was like It s so girly and cute but I love it The book has everything Original idea, great characters, great writing, difficult vocabulary which I din t expect from this book , action, romance, fictional stuff It is a great fantasy novel but I rate it 4 stars instead of 5 because I wasn t blown away by it and sometimes I was thinking to mysel [...]
I have to admitI was intrigued by this novel based on it s divine cover And the title, too Itwas not quite what I expected, but it was pretty good overall I am a huge fan of Young Adult novels, I love them But I think the Faerie Path is for the younger teens and not so much the older ones or us in our late twenties who are eternally 16 lol The Faerie Path is based on Shakesphere pardon my horrible misspelling of the Bards name and is based around Titania and Oberon and that whole kingdom It s b [...]
This book was super cute it was a breath of fresh air The faerie path was true to its name, it was a fairy tale through and through The charters were all perfectly defined and that has to be hard since there are at least 11 main charters in including Anita the main main charter.Anita is just an ordinary girl living in her ordinary town of London Her 16th birthday is approaching the day before her birthday she was in a boat crash or so it seems She is at the hospital on the night of her 16 birthd [...]
I wanted to branch out a little, so I picked up a book about a young woman who discovers she s a fairy The writing was dull and the story was uninspired and wandering Most of the plot elements seemed to come from a Barbie cartoon if there are such things it was very clothing obsessed and some kind of video game Go here, meet six sisters, each of whom have a special trait just like the main character, who can flit between the Mortal World and the Faerie World I mean, she s gone for 500 years and [...]
I really didn t like this book I was practically laughing all way through it it was just so sad and pathetic I felt phony and for the first 250 pages there was absolutely no story It was going nowhere, and then suddenly, out of the blue, there was a problem a bad one at that that needed solving by the main character, Tania Anita notice how the two names have the same letters How corny is that The entire book was anticlimatic, extremely boring and quite painful to read There s no connection with [...]
I love faerie books I really, really do Having read all of Holly Black and Melissa Marr s series, I was looking in the YA section for a new take A 12 yr old recommended this one to me sigh I couldn t make it past the first chapter It was so childishly written the main character has all the makings of a Mary Sue, perfect and loved by everyone, talented and wonderful and the author plunks her down in front of the mirror on the first page to describe how pretty she is And it only gets syrupy and s [...]
I read this with a friend for our reading challenge She told me not to bother I should really have listened to herI found this book very dull, superficial and painful to get through Which is probably why I only got to page fifty or so while sitting at the lunch table at work before giving up The main character got on my nerves, and there wasn t any substantial background characters to love, either.Generally I avoid Fairy books But recently I read the Toby Daye series which I am madly in love wit [...]
I really liked this way back when I read it Thinking back on it now, the story, it was kind of stupid I enjoy many stupid books I like the Shakespeare and that it takes place in London when Tania is in the human world The idea of past lives is also interesting So yeah good, but I think I am being very generous with three stars.I bought and read the first three books of this series The third felt like an ending so when the fourth came out I was tempted, but no, when something ends it ends.
The book was okay It got my attention, but the first page almost had me falling asleep This book proves to be pretty nice, and it whisks you away to a land of magic, fantasy, treachery, and romance It kept me on my feet, and some of the chapters are pretty good cliffhangers.All in all, I give it three stars Not the OMG, THIS IS LIKE DA BEST BOOK EVAH type Nor is it This is boring And sucks Nuff said It was in between ish This is recommended for girls that like magic, something like a fairy tale, [...]
I liked this book quite a bit The story takes you through a young girls struggle to believe that she is a fairy from the land of Faerie I cant describe as well as the books synopsis the main idea of the story I can say however that there is some betrayal, love, discovery, and strength in the story and is an enjoyable read if you like a bit of fantasy.
Hat mir leider gar nicht gut gefallen Der Anfang und auch der Mittelteil ziehen sich sehr und ich fand es auch sehr langatmig Zum Ende hin wurde es dann besser, aber ich werde die Reihe nicht weiterlesen Positiv zu erw hnen ist allerdings der Schreibstil, der hat mir ganz gut gefallen
