Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up -Ian Hasumi can see fairies, including his constant shadow, a green-haired, red-eyed doppelgänger called Tokage. Others rarely see the fairy world, but Rin, a former friend who has recently returned to town, has always believed Ian's stories. Interrupting the boys' plans to escape from Ian's father and Rin's abusive family, Tokage provokes Ian's father into a jealous rage, and Mr. Hasumi kills his son. Tokage takes over Ian's body, his life, and his romantic relationship with Rin, leading others to believe that the stabbing was merely a flesh wound. With the help of a mysterious shop owner and his fairy friend, Ian's disembodied spirit takes over the well-preserved body of a deceased elementary school boy and seeks to regain his rightful body while dealing with other fairy doppelgängers and the "Fairy Murders" they have been instigating. Yuki's striking illustrations are replete with pretty boys, emotion-filled faces, and intricately drawn fairies. With judicious use of descriptive adjectives alongside her intricate art, she makes readers long for full-color spreads. Her fans will not be disappointed, and even while containing murder, abuse, and revenge, this first of three volumes is more accessible than Yuki's previous works, all darker and with more convoluted plotlines.-Cara von Wrangel Kinsey, New York Public Library

    I have read this a while back, when I was younger and all I can say is that I thought it was imensly amazing. The artwork is exceptionally epic and makes you wanna read the whole thing over and over again. The place I used to borrow the book series, does not have them anymore so I thought to buy the series/. Noe I wait for the order to be shipped here. Cant wait ^///^

    Darker than it looks

    Fairy Cube is not cute and fluffy. The art is nice and the fairy adorable but this is a fairly dark story. Not standard Shojo Beat fare.

    Kaori Yuki amazes me yet again

    Fairy Cube keeps up with my expectations of a darker theme from Kaori Yuki, along with beautiful artwork. The characters are all deep and comlicated, and the portrayal of fairies is dead-on with the standard myths of changlings, tricksters, and unearthly powerful beings that seem almost sociopathic, rather than the Disney version of wish granting pixies. I highly reccomend this series to anyone who loves Kaori Yuki as much as I do, and anyone whose just looking for a good read.
