PLAN A FREE WEEKEND BEFORE STARTING THIS BOOK …. Pixie Noir, By Cedar Sanderson I picked up this book after running across its author, Cedar Sanderson, on one of the blogs where she writes, and finding her comments about writing and other topics very appealing. In one of those blogs she mentioned the release of Trickster Noir, the second book in this series. Since I enjoyed her non-fiction writing, I decided to try reading one of her fiction works, to see if I also liked her fiction. But since I hadn’t read Pixie Noir, I decided to start with it first, rather than with her more recently released, Trickster Noir. I am glad that I did. I started the book on a weekend, and finished it within 24 hours of downloading it for my Nook. I am not sure exactly what genre people would classify the book, but it works, very smoothly. The book moves quickly from the start — I was drawn in from the beginning — though it took me awhile to get the lay of the land to know exactly what was going on, what sort of universe the story was set it.  But I didn’t feel lost at any time as I was discovering the characters and their universe. The book starts in Alaska — the Alaska that we know. But since one of the main characters is a pixie, it obviously has something besides what you expect to find in a nature documentary. The blending of the real Alaska and the pixie elements is smooth and believable. What really carries the book is the story, and how it is a good story, and true to each of the characters, and how each of the characters learns and grows. I wasn’t on the edge of my seat having to read the next page to see what happened. Rather, I couldn’t put it down because I wanted to know what each character was going to do next. The conclusion was something that could be foreseen from the beginning, in one sense, and yet wasn’t possible until a revelation at the end of the book about a fact that a main character kept referring to throughout the book, but that we didn’t really understand all of what it meant until it was revealed by the resolution. Sanderson paced the plot of the book, and the revelation of necessary character information, throughout the book to achieve the perfect dramatic effect for her characters. I have picked up Trickster Noir now, but won’t be reading it until I have another good weekend to read. I know I will need the time. On a 5-star system, I would give this book a solid 4 (really tempted to give a 5, but I have a natural aversion to extreme ratings).    I am posting this anonymously because the system won't let me create a pen name -- Elfriend
