Faelorehn is a great first book in Ms. Johnson’s Otherworld Trilogy. Meghan Elam is a 17-year old junior trying to fit in despite the fact that most of her classmates think she is crazy. But Meghan has a small group of loyal friends who accept her the way she is. The side characters are fun and intriguing, particularly Robyn, who is into the Pagan Religion and constantly makes her friends take part in the Celtic rituals. Meghan is constantly subjected to teasing and tormenting by her peers, and Ms. Johnson does a good job of showing Meghan’s strength by not having her show too much outward emotion at their teasing, while still making her character realistic since the reader experiences Meghan’s inner turmoil.
Just like any teenage girl who has never had a boy show interest in her, Meghan is quickly taken with Cade MacRoich when he shows up in her life. But he isn’t a normal boy, he is from the otherworld and it is from Cade that Meghan learns about who she is.
In Faelorehn, the author does a great job of setting up the series and hinting at what’s to come down the road. You find out just enough about Meghan’s past and the mysterious Cade to leave you wanting to know more. There are a lot of minor characters in the first book (Meghan has a large family) and I am hoping that we will learn more about them as the series progresses! Overall, Faelorehn is a great, quick read that once I started, I couldn’t put down.

This was a brief story that catches your attention though leaves you wishing for more. A short story with a lot of information to pass on, I felt that it spent too much time on the background and not enough on the story or character development. There was a lot of interesting mythology in this story with deep involvement and a few twists. Meghan is a realistic teenager, though a shy and not completely explained. Cade is a wonderfully dark and mysterious hero, though sometimes I felt he was too mysterious. Something that will probably be solved in the next book. Their romance is implied and lightly touched, but not really shown or detailed. It was sweet though. A short and quick story that left you hanging and waiting for the section of the story.

    Faeloehn

    I did enjoy this book, but i have read better. I like the unique creatures that the author creates. Even the gruesome ones like the little goblins. The book does get slow in some parts like when she is not getting attacked and only thinking about Cade. Claire is also annoying and stupid. Could'nt she realize that Cade was safe and the Morrigan was lying. It was way to obvious, and even if he was in danger what was she going to do? Its not going to stop me fom reading the other books though. But i really felt like slapping some sense into her though.

    An Enjoyable read

    I haven't read for leisure in a long time. So I picked this book based on the name and description and that it was free. It got me toting around my nook everywhere looking forward to the next opportunity to read. I enjoyed it enough to purchase the second book in the trilogy.

    Interesting

    I have to admit at first I was not sure I was going to be able to get into this book. But I stuck with it, and it kept me intrigued, I wanted to know what would happen next. But some parts bore me, and I found myself skipping some of it. There was a good story behind it, and some decent character development. I most likely will buy the next book, only because I want to see what happens next, not because I really liked it.

    Cheesy love story

    Kind of like a fantasy novel version of a cheesy shojo manga (for all you otakus who know what i mean)

    Good story, needs to lay of the romance just a tad, and more storyline needs to take place. Also a few grammar mistakes here and there.

    Overall its alright

    Good...i guess

    Overall the book had an interesting plotline. However, it was very slow paced. That does not mean it was bad...it just means you dont get where you want to be in the book as fast as you want to. It is a great book but not like hunger games or harry potter great where you cant put it down.

    I still have about 100 pages left. Its an interesting read but I still feel like I have question that should of been answered in the first 100 pages. Its takes a long time to get the point of the book

    WARNING: CLIFFHANGER ENDING

    Personally, I despise cliffhangers but if you aren't the sort bothered by them then this is a good read. The characters are likeable if a bit predictable. The author tries very hard to make her teenagers seem like teenagers but clearly doesn't remember her own teenage years so clearly. Geeks hanging out with Goths seems less likely than the Fae hanging out in a bit of neglected land.
