    Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite

    La Fee Verte by Samuel Clark is a dramatic and compelling fairy tale and almost legend about how the green fairy ended up “living” inside a bottle of absinthe. The story is told via various characters through letter format, and you almost get a sense of traveling back in time to the Middle Ages. When the story opens, Father Romanis Laurent is beginning his holy pilgrimage by attempting to destroy a dragon plaguing a local French village. It is a tough job as the dragon has ravaged this village for years. He rallies the villagers, but only Madame Couvet, the local innkeeper, is brave enough to accompany him on his errand. Through daring and courage, Laurent defeats the dragon, but along the way the priest succumbs to the temptation Madame Couvet offers. Flash forward: Virginie Couvet has never met her father. She and her two sisters are the scorn of her town, because these ladies craft the noxious alcohol absinthe which has intoxicated the men of the town.

    I really loved the writing style. There was a beauty and a flow in the entire piece that really gave life to the setting of a French village, and to the dramatic events that unfolded throughout the story. You almost get the mystical feel of a traditional Brothers Grimm fairy tale, which truly added an extra layer of appeal. Even the dialogue and imagery was set with a medieval feel, and I found it very easy to slip into the story. I really enjoyed the fairy tale atmosphere of La Fee Verte. It was slow at times, but, overall, really hit that part of me that wants to keep reading and learn more. A solid 4 stars!
