Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—This book has the look and feel of a true manga title, complete with two battling men and a flustered female who wishes she were stronger. Lydia is wide-eyed and innocent, described as having hair the color of "rust," while Huxley and Edgar are smoldering, with long bangs and serious eyes. Edgar is most likely the good guy, but that could change throughout the plot. Huxley is a thief, with a band of brothers on the prowl, who abduct Lydia, a fairy doctor who may know how to find the famous Star Sapphire. Edgar, claiming to be the descendant of the Blue Knight, a fairy ruler and friend of the king, swoops in to rescue her. However, he also wants the Star Sapphire to prove his claim to the Earldom his father left. Lydia and her talking cat (a fairy in feline form) are stumped by the good guy/bad guy scenario as well. The story has hints of romance, plenty of fantasy, a bit of violence, and just enough Pride and Prejudice-style manners to interest female readers. As the book ends with a cliff-hanger, libraries need to commit to buying the whole series.—Sarah Knutson, American Canyon Middle School, CA

The story speaks for itself. Nice and easy read with nice/pretty art as well. I just love a heroine who talks to her cat (how can also talk but us regular people don't get the pleasure of hearing him) and a handsome man in distress needs this lovely lady's help....yeah, I'm just gonna let the series talk for itself. It's pretty good so far for the beginning.

As I understand it this is a relatively new series, considering that the third and fourth books are still on pre-order. Usualy I don't start new series because I can read through manga in a day and then I have to wait weeks or months to get the next ones after I finish these first two. I was unaware this was a new series when I ordered it but that's ok because it's super good. The time period was perfect for the plot which is exceptional with elegant twists. The charactors are complex and interesting and there is an air of mystery around nearly everyone. Edgar is a cruel, smart and sensible, calculating, ass kissing/kicking scoundrel full of mystery hiding behind the mask of a flattering gentleman. And what a sexy mask that is! Of course Raven is just as fine if not more. The only area that could use work is the actual art. For the most part it's clean and beautiful like manga art should be but there are some spots that seem a little unpolished to me, espesualy Edgar's eyes in some frames. Being the first book of the series I assume "God's ultimate creation and legendary holy hermit" will improve in the books to come. All in all what a cool series!!!

I been wanting to read this series for a while after hearing about the anime. I have yet to watch that too. So finally read this and I liked it. I did start reading it but stopped, not in the mood for it. But after finally getting around to reading this, I liked the main character. She didn't care what others think and does what she does because she wants to and isn't ashamed for being a fairy doctor. I like that. Its very refreshing to see a MC in a manga like that. Or at least the ones I been reading lately. The premise also is interesting and wondering where the story will go. Same with its characters. Art was pretty good as well. Oh and Nico is adorable.

Earl and the fairy is an amazing series. With twists and turns that made it impossibal to put it down! I bought the first three book from a actual book store and the art is amazing! Although on the nook the art seems.....off a bit. Oh but the story is much diffrent (in my opinoin much better) then other shojo manga sense the two main characters are so diffrent and arent falling head-over-heels for each other all the time.

I thought that this series had a perfect mysterious tone with it, along with the right kind of twists that have you wanting to keep reading until your finished entirely, then making you want to re-read it just to feel like your involved in the storyline. I believe that there should be an extra book because it was left a little...too openly and not explained or finished conpletely. If the author would add an extra book to truly end the series, it'll be even better. ;) And the graphics are very good and well done.
