Hea y'all I have been reading Fairy Circle and let me say I completely, absolutely, and utterly enjoyed this book. Author Johanna Pontes Frappier did an incredible job she took fairies, vampires, humans, and reincarnation and arranged them in a story that describes life and living in a whole new light. I would say her books moral is what you do in this life will determine where and what you are in your next life. I love that Johanna made sure to explain every detail of how past lives work, how you know all the people around you, how you have shared lives with them before the trick is just figuring out how you knew them. Was she your mother, your friend, or maybe your daughter. The characters in Johannas' book are fantastical and believable. Saffron the main character is a recluse, she is scared of just about everything but there is a very good reason for all this fear. When she sleeps her nightmares are relentless and passionate which aggravates and confuses the still pristine Saffron. The nightmares scare her and terrorize her even in the day light hours. The author takes fairies and gives them a new spin and I love the new twist she has created. Johanna describes each as a thing of beauty and adoration but at the same time there is a serious air of danger and lies that floats around them and Saffron must figure out what is happening to her to fully understand what they want with her, a human. Now if all this doesn't sound exciting enough throw a vampire in there too. Saffrons' desperation to have no fear and to gain control of her spiraling life drives her right into the arms of a vampire, but will she figure out his true intentions before it's to late to go back? All the characters are tied together, they all play a vital role in what will become of Saffron and her future lives if she is even going to get to have any. Above all this literary greatness there is also the tried and true romance taking place but this love is no fantasy it's more like a torture devise to Saffron. I am completely in love with this book and its solid storyline and gut clenching twists that I never could have guessed would come from this seemingly cute story, nope this is a dramatic twist to things that have been put to light with love stories and fantasies, remember that even in the light the most beautiful things still have a shadow, a dark place where anything can hide. I can give this book 5 stars but it deserves more for originality and content. So if you like Fairies, Vampires, and the dark sides of things the like then do yourself a huge favor and get this book, start the series and fall in love with all the characters. 5 out of 5 stars for Fairy Circle by Johanna Pontes Frappier.

Getting wrapped up in the main characters life was fun. Saffron is wonderful girl and I loved every turn of the page. Seeing this world through her eyes you felt like you were right there. The author Johanna gets you wanting more. Im looking forward to the second part of the story which is rumored to have a release date near Halloween .. which I might say is perfect.lolWas this review helpful?
