The adjective used with this book is spellbinding and spellbinding it is. Many readers will not be able to put the book down, finishing it in under four hours. The plot is one of the best spins on faeries that most readers will have seen for a long time. The events are fast-paced and exciting, particularly in the middle and the characters are so fun to read about. The historical setting enriches the whole faerie theme, making the story slightly different from other novels with a similar theme. The romance isn't the main focus, but it develops at all the right times and is believable. The love interest actually isn't that obvious until further on in the book, the reader will be content to guess and wait though-there is more than enough going on that this part isn't missed. The author writes very smoothly, the transitions are not the least bit choppy and everything falls neatly into place. The reader will experience the same emotions that the main character feels over certain events in the story-a large range of them too...this is, of course, a mark of a good author if she can evoke emotions in the reader. The sadder events in the book-poverty, orphans, death, etc...-are written clearly and plainly. The author handles these qualities very well, she doesn't gloss over them. Reiker is probably the most interesting character. The reader will not be quite sure what role he is to play until further into the novel. He is enigmatic, somewhat protective, and his intentions are never quite clear. Tiki, the main character, is impressive. She literally works with what she has...and she doesn't have all that much. She is very likable and will connect with the reader easily. This book is recommended to teens/young adults/adults who enjoy escaping into a meshed world of fantasy and realism.

There were lots of things that drew me to this novel. I've found that I enjoy a number of books that involve fairies, so this was sounded good on that fact alone. But, I'm also drawn to books set in historic England (Tudor usually but also enjoy regency). So this book became a must read for me. I really enjoyed Tiki's character. I liked the background of coming from money, but willing to live on the streets instead of waiting for the other shoe to drop by living with family. I think it shows strength of character. Especially when she makes it her mission to help other on the street. She may not be able to provide them with the same opportunities she once had, but she's going to give them the best life possible. I was intrigued by the rest of the cast of character. Rieker is an interesting sort, especially when we learn of the double roll he plays. I really did not see that one coming. It makes him that much more endearing. Turns it out, he has a lot in common with Tiki and it make his devotion to her that much more sweet. I love Prince Leo in this story. I was kind of hoping he would be the love interest, but happy with the roll he plays in the story. I also like the little family of orphans that Tiki takes care of. They are there for each other no matter what. I really liked the story line. The ring has been part of the royal family for centuries and its ties to the faerie realm are interesting. I do feel like the story has just barely touched on this element though. It seems most of the story takes place in the real world, with just a glimpse of the other. I'm hoping the next book in the series really gets into the folklore behind the ring and what Tiki really is. If your looking for a combination of paranormal mixed with historical fiction, this is it. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to the next installment!

Hamilton writes an enchanting and well-paced faerie London. The writing is very easy on the brain and the promise of a happy ending is also quite nice. Some of the stylistic elements reminded me of what drew me to The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare. I liked that characters were not perfect but had redeeming qualities. I also enjoyed Clara's "It's preetiful" comment, haha!

So of course growing up I was always the 'Fairy Tale' kinda girl. Well, now that I'm supposedly grown-up, I adore a good 'Faerie Tale'. Kiki did NOT disappoint! The story was amazing, fast paced & full of intrigue. I related to Tiki trying to figure out who she could trust as well as her protective mothering nature. The entire storyline was phenomenal however, I think Kiki did a great job wrapping up the story yet leaving enough unfinished/unresolved so that you are desperate for more.....

I¿ll admit that I wasn¿t expecting to fall in love with Kiki Hamilton¿s The Faerie Ring as much I did, but now after reading it, I totally get why I did. Hamilton¿s stunning debut has everything you could want- mystery, excitement, fantasy, heart, romance *wink wink*, compelling characters, and a completely captivating story. I read The Faerie Ring in one sitting because I simply could not put it down. I was absolutely captivated and enchanted by its magic. Hamilton has created a spellbinding and riveting story that is beautifully executed and masterfully weaved. The fantasy is fun, the characters are engaging, and the writing is superb. The story is fast paced and exciting, but never feels rushed or overwhelming. The world Hamilton creates in this book is extremely well developed, layered, and vivid. The world of 19th century London simply comes alive within the pages of this book and feels incredibly real. From the gritty slums of the city to the grand ballroom of Buckingham Palace to the otherworldy realm of the Fae, I saw every scene and every aspect of the setting clearly and easily in my head. And I felt like I was a part of it all! The dialogue, clothes, setting, history, etc are so very authentic that I really did feel like I had been swept away to Victorian London for a few hours. Yet, despite the setting and time period of this book, it possesses a great refreshing, modern feel as well. The fantasy elements in this book are wonderful and delightful! I loved Hamilton¿s take on the world of faeries. The faeries in this book aren¿t your adorable Tinkerbells. They¿re dangerous, powerful, and vengeful, but completely captivating. Hamilton creates a very intricate and complex history surrounding her faeries that really impressed me. The life of a pickpocket orphan makes for a thrilling story. I really enjoyed stalking the grimy streets of London with Tiki has she followed her marks and deftly stole from them. There¿s something so exciting about knowing that what these characters are doing (stealing) is wrong, yet not caring at all and being ready to loyally defend their actions if needed. And there is something so magical and compelling about a ragtag group of orphans who have banded together and formed a surprisingly loving, tight family. The love and compassion between this little group of orphans is so touching and heartwarming. The last quarter of the book is climactic and gasp-worthy, with unexpected twists, turns, and revelations. The ending made me smile (and maybe even tear up a bit) and left me wanting more. Hamilton¿s characters are so awesome! They really make this book spectacular. I absolutely love Tiki. She¿s smart, feisty, brave, loyal, and compassionate. She has such heart and strength, and the way she loves her new family is breathtaking. Tiki is a great example of a female YA protagonist done right! She¿s easy to relate to and impossible not to root for. Rieker *swoons a little*¿aww Rieker. This handsome, mysterious fellow is so intriguing. Even from his very first appearance, you get the feeling that there is so much more to him than what he simply lets on. But I love that even though he¿s keeping secrets and isn¿t always honest with Tiki, he¿s always himself. Even when his secrets are revealed, his personality never changes¿and thank goodness for that! I¿ve fallen in love with Kiki Hamilton¿s The Faerie Ring! This is an awesomely fantastic debut of what looks to be a phenomenal series.
