Not E.D. Bakers best work!

I got this book is about a girl named Tamisan who is a little unusual. Then she finds out that she is a fairy and she is taken back to the fairy world by goblins. And she and a goblin named Jak fall in love with each other. It was good but when I was getting deeper into the book it was just boring. And I skipped to the ending and it seems like there is going to be a sequel. I got this for Christmas and I was so excited about reading it but the story was just boring and predictable. Its predictable because you know the main characters just fall in love with each other. Also you know right away that Tamisin is a fairy because the book kind of tells you right away. I think E.D. Baker could of done better than what she wrote. If you are starting to read books from her I would suggest reading the books from the Frog Princess Series its actually a good series and they are action packed and full of adventure and magic and not the same kind of happily ever after fairy tale.

    A little too fairy tale?

    I, for one, am 12 years old and just by the summary think this sounds a little bit too fantasy. I read both Wings by Aprilynne Pike and Wings by ED Baker and think Pike's was much better. She somehow made you think of the possibility of real faeries, while Baker's just reminded me of a bedtime story. I hate it when children of a certain age are all categorized as one, as it has been proved I have a reading level of a college student. I have read the Twilight Series, Marked Series, Kissed by An Angel, Host, The Uglies series(NOT about ugly people at ALL), and many other books categorized for young adults. Right now I am reading Under The Dome by Stephen King, and my teacher and I actually discussed how she had read some of his books and some that I would like. I just turned 12 on December 7th and when I was 11 I was getting tired of seeing all of my books saying 12 and up. If authors can't understand that any book containing maybe either violence, sexual content, or adult language can be written for any age child (on some level of maturity) I'd still be reading my Junie B. Jones books.

    dissapointing

    okay really sorry, but this book kind of sucked. It sounded cool, and was a really neat idea, but it just wasn't that great, or original, and it was poorly written. There wasn't enough description and i didn't know what the heck the character was thinking. It didn't go the distance,... or on second thought it did really go much of any where....
