Overview

Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog

Morgan Sparks and Cam Browne are a match made in heaven. They've been best friends since birth, they tell each other everything, and oh yeah—they're totally hot for each other.
But a week before their joint sweet sixteen bash, everything changes. When Morgan demands answers, she's shocked to discover the source of Cam's distance. It isn't another girl—it's another world. Pip claims that Cam is a fairy. No, seriously. A fairy. And now his people want Cam to return to their world and take his rightful place as Fairy King.
Determined to keep Cam with her, Morgan plots to fool the fairies and see if their "perfect" love can weather an uncertain future.

well who said all endings should be fairy tale endings?? well this book makes you believe in second times around. Your loving and rooting for one character then you wish him the best but root for the other. It is a sad ending which i think we would all have liked if it was a bit longer, but none the less it was a good read, the main female character sounds a little selfish through out the book but towards the end you feel sorry for her and how her life is going. all said and done it was a pleasent read which i would recommend.

Morgan Sparks and her boyfriend, Cam, have been together forever, basically. She knows they are perfect for each other, and nothing can break them apart. Then Pip, Cam's "cousin," comes to stay with him, and Cam is suddenly different. When Cam finally fesses up, he reveals to Morgan that he is a fairy. He and Pip were switched at birth, and Cam's biological brother died. Now Cam is the rightful heir as Fairy King. Morgan wants nothing more than to be with Cam forever. But he is physically changing, and Morgan can't help but think maybe he should leave. This debut novel was absolutely stunning. I wasn't sure what to expect, seeing how it is about a male fairy, which is kind of strange. But I fell in love with it. I loved everything about it. I didn't want it to end, though. I loved Morgan's character, but she did bug me sometimes. I couldn't decide who I liked better between Cam and Pip, but I think I choose Pip, because of the way he spoke. I recommend FAIRY TALE to everyone. It is amazing.

I really enjoyed Cyn Balog's story,characters and writing style. Morgan was such a fun character and loved her mother. Anyone would be lucky to fall for Cameron or Pip. I look forward to reading more of Cyn's books.

fairy tale is one of my favorite fantasy books! its an awesome story about a girl that lives a happy average/normal life in high school with a nice and ecstatic best friend, a gift for seeing what is goin to happen in the future, and has the one thing that every girl in her school wants: the most popular guy in school! and he is just perfect for her in every way, well a little too perfect! because he's been acting very strange every since his "cousin" comes to stay with him! and she fears that her boyfriend is hiding something from her! this book has adventure, teenage love, and many secrets! this book will forever be one of my all time favorite books!

This book kind of kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time. I couldn't put it down. I loved the characters; I felt as if I were a lot like Morgan personality wise. Ugh, but the ending is so sad and amazing at the same time! I was wishing Cam was back to normal and didnt have to leave. I honestly would love to know how the author pictured both Pip and Cam!

This is an amazing book about a girl who has the best boyfriend in the world. Then he starts acting weird. Soon she figures out that he's a fairy and he doesn't even belong here. The fairy king sent him away because he was sick and couldn't take the thrown. Well now they know that he is ok and they want him back because his older brother, died. I can't say anymore about the book. I dont wanna spoil it for you ;] I just Can't Get Enough !

I'll be honest-- when I first saw the cover for this book earlier this year, I fell in love with it-- or lust, since the original title (which was soon changed, why, I have no clue!) was Fairy Lust. The cover art caught my eye, and the summary finished drawing me in. Fairies, forbidden love, a possible love triangle... really, what about that doesn't sound interesting? I don't even know where to start-- over all, this book was great, truly an interesting (and unique) story. Did it have it's flaws? Sure, but what book doesn't. But there were only a few things about the book that bothered me (mainly the way that the characters acted/spoke during a few parts of the books, they seemed more like whiny teenagers than the strong characters I prefer in my books, but in the end, they managed to straighten up a bit), and none of these flaws were enough to make me dislike the book in any way. Instead, I've been captivated by Balog's writing, and I'm anxious to see more from this promising new author. Really, if this debut is this good, can you imagine what future books will be like? Wow! Back to the book-- the plot was good, and it really made me stop and think: what would you do if the love of your life suddenly told you he was a fairy? And what if he was going to leave for the other side to be King of the fairies in only a handful of days? What would you do, how would you react? And to make it even more complicated, what if the guy who's suppose to take his spot back on Earth starts attracting your attention-- is it okay to fall for the man replacing your boyfriend, even if there's no other way for it to work out? Morgan's life is thrown into instant turmoil, and I can't say I envy her having to deal with it all! Despite all these troubles, Morgan must continue her everyday life like nothing is wrong-- after all, she can't exactly ask her parents or friends for help, can you imagine trying to explain that your boyfriend, the All-American boy for the town, football star and all around tough-guy, is now a fairy, wasting away before your eyes, while no one else can see the fairy changes going on? She'd be locked up in the mental hospital quicker than she can say 'Tinker Bell'! Add to this the fact that Morgan has a unique talent: she can see visions of people's futures, except for Cam's, which is explained when she finds out his secret, of course. As far as the characters go, at the beginning, I was all for Cam-- he seemed like a sweet guy, yet masculine enough to satisfy the 'strong male' role that I so love in my romances. The connection between Morgan and Cam was there, and it was one of those 'aw' kind of moments, since they've been together from a very young age, from elementary crush to high school sweethearts. But as soon as Pip, the human baby stolen 16 years ago and taken to Fairy, comes into the story, and we learn more about him and watch as he tries to figure out this bizarre world and fit in, I found myself leaning more towards Pip instead of Cam....And so does Morgan! I'm not surprised that Morgan had such a hard time deciding, I know I would have. Which would you choose, the one you've known and loved all your life or the new boy who's making you blush and laugh over the simplest things? ....

Starting out, I wasn't quite sure what to think and honestly, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book. In the end it was pretty good though! As I went through the story I had varying thoughts of how it should end up. On the one hand, who doesn't want a happily ever after? On the other hand, in order for that to happen ... well, there just wasn't a way for EVERYONE in the story to get that happily ever after. So I respect the direction the author took. I didn't think I'd be happy if it went this way, but I am satisfied in a bittersweet kind of way. I enjoy the lore of the story. I like the thought of this parallel world with fairies who can see us but can't come over except on certain days. I like the fact that there might be a few of us humans who can witness their magic. The part of the story that was hard to wrap my mind around, was how seemingly careless the fairies are. These are not your Tinkerbell fairies, these are not the evil fairies of some stories, they are somewhere in between. It was interesting. All in all, this read very much like a Young Adult novel. I think middle school aged kids would enjoy it and relate to it a bit better than my middle aged self. But it was cute and enjoyable for what it was.

Woops I unintentionally purchased this through "Nook Book" and spent a good few minutes trying desperately to return it. However, seeing as I couldn't, I figured I might as well read it since I had paid for it. The plot itself was cute. Though, I felt like a lot was left unexplained at the end (Pip's point of view on..well...everything, Cam's dreams about OtherWorld, etc.) and I didn't quite appreciate the irrupt ending. I wished the characters would have had more dimension to them- they just seem to fall a little flat. Nonetheless, it was a fun easy read. You can pretty much guess the plot from the get-go but it still kept me entertained enough to want to keep reading it till the end. Not bad for a book I DIDN'T want to buy in the first place. Hah!
