Overview

No magic for two weeks? What’s a fairy to do? Go to Vegas, of course!

Princess Talista of the fairy clan Serendipity has been sent, like all young fairies, to a remote forest in humanspace for mandatory survival training. But headstrong Tali’s got different ideas about where to spend two weeks without magic. What better place than Las Vegas to learn to live like humans, a true test of survival?

Tali might not blend, but she’d like to be shaken and stirred with stage magician Jake Story. Their attraction is instant and electric…and Tali senses there’s more to Jake’s show than flashy tricks.

Jake always knew he was different, even before he developed an unusual flair for hypnotism. He has no trouble mesmerizing the luscious Tali during act three, but the lights that appear around them when they kiss weren’t part of the program.

When the authorities from Tali’s homeland track the missing princess to Vegas, Jake and Tali end up on the run. In between magic experiments, evil gnomes and astonishing sex, Tali learns what it really means to be human—by falling in lust, followed closely by love.

But Tali’s not human. And Jake doesn’t believe in fairies. The truth will either bind them together—or tear the fairy realm apart.

I really enjoyed Jody Wallace's Survival of the Fairest. I think she created a fascinating world with really unique and interesting characters and her writing was fluid and often hilarious. The novel is set in modern day Las Vegas and its convergence with the Fae Realm. Tali [a fairy princess] is a refreshingly naive and stubborn character - she thinks she knows [but she totally doesn't] everything about the human world and even goes so far as to classify herself as a "humanophile". It's this intense curiosity and obsession with anything human that leads her to break some rules and land herself in the middle of Las Vegas without a clue. Luckily for her, she runs into Jake [a magician] who thinks poor Tali is nuts but manages to fall in love with her anyway. The end result is a fast moving adventure and a lot of romantic sweetness and humor. The story is set up for Jody to do some sequels and I'd be eager to check them out. The only criticism I'd have is that the end is just a little too mashed together with a lot of "back and forth" with the plot - nonetheless, this was a very good read.
