Overview

Alicia's always known she's different--that she can recognize the mischievous fae when they show up to "play" with the humans. Only now she's faced with one highly annoyed dark fae and she's certain he knows the truth about her. She can see him, which means her life is forfeit.

Add to that, his sister arrives, who wants to play, too. And their mother, the queen of the Denkar, will want Alicia's head, once she learns what Alicia can do.

And all because Alicia was attempting to rescue her friend, Cassie, on their beach excursion at South Padre Island, from the wicked fae. Now, Alicia has really gone and done it--and she's thinking she should have let the fae have his fun. Her friend's broken heart would be a lot easier to deal with, than Alicia losing her life.

But it is too late for regrets. As soon as she threw the soda at the dark fae's chest, she had declared war on the fae. And he is happy to take up the challenge.

    A Quick Fun Read

    Anyone who knows me, knows I love all things Fae. Heck, I even tease my daughters, telling them that my flower bed is a secret faerie garden. When asked by Terry Spears to review The Dark Fae, I jumped at the chance, not to be disappointed. I adored that part of the story took place at South Padre Island...I am from Texas after all, plus I adore the ocean. Deveron and Alicia were fun as guides in their crazy world.

    Alicia has always known she can see Fae but she has never known how deeply her sight is implanted in her. When she sees "the evil" dark fae flirting with her best friend, Alicia throws ice cold coke on him. I would have paid to see his face...especially since he is fae royalty. Deveron realizes immediately that there is something different about Alicia. Through several laugh provoking experiments, he figures out that she can see even invisible fae. It doesn't take him long to figure out she needs protection and he is the only one who can help; neither of them know exactly what they are getting themselves into.

    While I definitely enjoyed this fantastical tale, I didn't find the world as intriguing as I would have liked. There was something missing that didn't pull me deep into the story.

    The Dark Fae was a quick and fun story. I loved the interaction between Deveron, Alicia, and Ritasia (Deveron's sister). They were quirky, quick-witted, and exciting.

    *I was given an e-book copy of The Dark Fae by Terry Spear in exchange for my honest review.

    Good read

    I'm a fan of Terry Spear and this book was fun to read. It was fast paced with some great characters, making it hard to put down. Except for a timeline issue that was not adding up to me; this is a story that I'll definitely read again.

    Left Wanting More

    I am very interested in most things Fae, so I was exited to find this. While I greatly enjoyed the story, however, the characters left much to be desired. As opposed to subtle and unique character development, the characters started off interesting and switched (very suddenly) to the cliche stereotypes that make me dislike most stories.

    It's a good (enough) read for those who enjoy bubble gum pop plot lines, happy endings, and two dimensional characters. I know that there are many people like that, and if you are one, then this is probably for you.

    If you prefer a more in depth and not-a-flavor-of-the-day read, then you should look elsewere.

    Okay

    I agree with the strange timeline comment. I like a fast paced book but this one was too fast with no plot developement. Amateur writing. I most likely won't read anymore of her books.

    Self-publishing has its drawbacks

    This is PubIt book and it shows. A good editor could definitely have helped the story here. The dialogue appears to have been written by a 92-year-old man who has never encountered a modern teenager and the story's world is undeveloped with too many one sentence resolutions. This appears to be an attempt at a new take on the fae but the universe isn't developed and doesn't read new (not like Julie Kagawa with her Iron Fey or Aprilynne Pike's plant-based creatures). But the characters - they're fun (if unpolished). If you're someone who reads for the characters and won't be distracted by awkward phrasing or simplistic storytelling, you'll likely enjoy this book. However, I have trouble believing the author's claim to conduct online writing courses.

    The Dark Fae by Terry Spear
    Two friends are on vacation on the lovely South Padre Island when one of them recognizes a dark fae. It’s not unusual for Alicia recognize the fae when they arrive to mingle with humans. Though she knows little about her personal history, she does know she’s part fae thanks to the father who abandoned her and her mother when Alicia was a toddler.
    Terry Spear has created an array of fascinating and compelling characters with this first book of The Dark Fae series. I quickly identified with Alicia since I’m adopted and still have gaps in my own history. But Alicia’s past becomes more than idle questions when she’s transported to the treacherous fae world and must hide or face the wrath of those who would kill a human invading their world.
    Terry created a wonderful fae world that pulls you into the story with ease. She has an array of characters and, like a good writer, often makes it difficult to know who friend or foe. If you enjoy fae stories like I do, you’ll love listening to or reading this one!

     I was enthralled and enchanted by this lively fae story that moved fast and kept me riveted from beginning to the end.                                            


    ***This is a review of the Audible edition***




    I loved this! I was enthralled, enchanted and enamored by this lively fae story that moved fast and kept me riveted from beginning to the end. There just weren't any dull moments. The characters were fun and each was on a trip of self-discovery. This is a story that would be perfect for tweens and teens . But... it's not just for the young. I really enjoyed it, too, and I'm in my 60s.




    The characters shined! Alicia was raised as a human who could see the fae. All she knew about the fae royal kingdoms, she had learned from her father's journal. As she and her friend, Cassie, were vacationing on South Padre Island, Deveron, a dark fae. made a move on Cassie. Alicia literally pours cold water on him to put a halt to his shenanigans. Deveron decides that he will enjoy paying her back. He might be surprised, though, to find the tables turned on him.




    Within these pages, Alicia evolves from a wanna-be beach bunny to a feisty, resourceful, and strong heroine. Deveron begins as a cocky, egotistical fae who gets his kicks by playing games with innocent humans. I didn't like him at all at first. But... he executed a complete turn-around in the story to a caring, yummylicious hero. Ritasia was witty and I admired how she supported her brother and protected Alicia. The descriptions of scenes drew me right into the story. OMG! I wish I could travel like they do! The bantering and dialogue between Deveron, Alicia and Ritasia was humorous at times and always engaging. The romance between Deveron and Alicia gave me a warm and fuzzy glow. If I were Alicia, I'd never let go of him!




    If you listen to the audible version as I did, the narrator is very good. Her voice was clear and didn't distract me from the story. I like to listen to audibles while exercising. I can immerse myself so deeply in Terry's books, that I look forward to each session and I don't even feel the pain.




    Bottom-line: If you like to escape to magical fantasy worlds with fun romances, captivating characters and non-stop. entertaining adventure, rush to whatever bookstore you use, and buy this book now!

    The story line was good. The characters were good. It was good. A quick read really. But it wasn't fabulous. I probably won't continue with the book series.
