Overview

In this funny and romantic sequel to WINGS, the half-human half-fairy princess Tamisin is kidnapped by Oberon, the king of the fairies. Forced to leave her boyfriend, Jak, behind in the human world, Tamisin feels completely lost. In the land of the fey, Oberon tells her that her mother, Titania had been lying when she'd said Tamisin was half fairy, half human. Who is telling the truth? And how can she get home again? Oberon doesn't have much time to explain. And Dasras, the odd blue boy who's meant to look after her, doesn't have the answers either. Tamisin must rely on her own sense of right and wrong, of truth and lies, and most importantly, of friendship and love, to sort out who she really is.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jeff Mann
Fairy princess Tamisin Warner has left her human home and ventured to the land of fey, where other fairies, sphinxes, and goblins reside. Oberon, king of the fairies, believes he is Tamisin's father. Titania, Tamisin's mother, has always told her daughter that her real father was a human who died long ago. Once in the land of fey, Tamisin is convinced that Oberon may indeed be her real father, and she sets out to get to know the father she never had; however, someone seems to be lying to her about her family. Jak, Tamisin's boyfriend from the human world, realizes that he must also travel to the land of fey to bring back Tamisin and prevent a full-scale fairy war between Oberon's forces and Titania's warriors. Fairy Lies bounces between Jak's adventures and Tamisin's exploits in the land of the fey, but most readers may not be captivated by either's story. The pacing is slow, and the majority of the characters are not well drawn. While the last third of the novel starts to hit the mark, many of the events seem short on detail and long on explanation, resulting in a choppy flow. The impeding war between the fairies, for example, is ended abruptly in just a few short paragraphs. Those who enjoyed Baker's Fairy Wings, however, and those who clamor for books about fairies, will want to read this one. Reviewer: Jeff Mann
School Library Journal
Gr 6–9—In this follow-up to Fairy Wings (Bloomsbury, 2008), Princess Tamisin is back in the human world, but feeling pulled to return to the fairy world and her mother Titania, its queen. Titania is married to, but estranged from, Oberon, king of the fairies, who is angry that Titania never told him about Tamisin. He kidnaps the princess in order to get to know her better, but also to exact revenge on his wife. Tamisin is caught between her mother and King Oberon, worries about her human parents, and fears that magic has been used to make her forget her human boyfriend, Jak. He and a cat goblin return to the fairy world to save her. It may help to have read the first book to understand what is going on, but even so, the story line mixes magic and reality and romance in a way that confuses rather than engages. Still, Tamisin is an appealing character, and readers will find themselves wanting to know what happens to her.—Kathy Kirchoefer, Prince Georges County Memorial Library System, New Carrollton, MD

This book was wonderful! I was really worried when Tamisin was taken to the world of magic, and finds out things about other magical creatures, that she wasn't aware of. And no matter how wonderful something seems, you shouldn't forget what's really important. It made me feel like I was actually in the world of the Fey.

This is the best book I have ever read, But make sure you read fairy wings first. This is the second book in the series and Tamisins adventure continues when she finds her real parents and... opps! I gave to much away. I give it FIVE stars. READ IT... You know you want to.

Not as good as the first book. But I still loved it. I was rooting for Tamisin and Jak all the way! Still showing from both point of views, Jak is on his way to "save" Tamisin. While Tamisin is at Oberon's forest, believing she's in love with Dasras {NO!} and having a trouble remembering someone. I still loved it, but still prefer the first book.
