C.J. Abedi (which actually stands for sisters Colet and Jasmine) have started a new series in the realm of YA fantasy literature.




"Fae" is a welcome addition to the genre.




The entire story is based in Roanoke, North Carolina and draws heavily from the missing colony lore surrounding it. The Abedi sisters have created some beautiful mythology weaving the Fae into this narrative.




Caroline is busy trying to be a normal teen when she is drawn into this Fae world by the handsome and intriguing Devilyn. All of this is because of Caroline's lineage, which she of course knows nothing about.




Helping to make this story relate-able is a fantastic set of supporting characters. Caroline has a best friend, Teddy, that anyone would be lucky to have. Devilyn's grandfather is amazing and adds an incredibly interesting twist to the whole story. Caroline's parents are near perfect and the depth of their caring for her is beautiful.




Chosen family vs. blood family is a large theme throughout this book. Are the bonds that we choose to create stronger than the bonds we are born into? What is loyalty?




In this very crowded field it is hard for a book to really break out and distinguish itself. Fae does this. It provides a well thought out story. The back-story and history are fully developed and well presented. The introduction to all of the elements flows well for the reader. The characters interact believably.




It is a well crafted story that deserves to find an abundance of readers.




I would also like to add that the cover is beautiful. Simple and evocative. Perfect.




I was provided a gratis copy for the purpose of review.

We do not need you to tell us every detail of the story. We can read, and prefer to read it for ourselves. We do not like you ppl telling us a readers digest condensed version of it simply because you got a free book. Stop with the plot spoilers.

    Not for grown ups

    I'm a 40 year old lady who happens to love some YA lit - Harry Potter is a classic. This book is not in that realm.

    While I'm sure that younger readers will greatly enjoy it, for us old folks, the plot is one that has been done more than a few times... and this time, it's not done very well.

    It has an interesting mix of the old gods (Odin for example) with the Fae... but the plot is one of boy is destined for girl but refuses to follow his destiny, girl hates boy because he's so rude... they fall in love anyways, he resists his fate, she gets into a dangerous situation with the bad guys... story over. Which is also frustrating - why drag this story out? Not every book should be a trilogy, and it seems like this one could have had more of a completed story line within one book.

    I hate leaving negative reviews, I know that the authors work hard on their books and I do appreciate their efforts. However, I leave this as fair warning for other adults dipping into teen lit. This is OK but it is not great...

    It's okay...

    This is one of those books that is very "teeney bopper". I wasn't able to get through the book because I could not stand the way either character "thinks".

    I feel the story's concept was great, but it was poorly written. I was disapointed and let down!
