Overview

Princess Ritasia misses the adventure of getting her brother and cousins out of trouble, but when the hawk fae king arrives to court her, she becomes involved in trouble nothing like she's ever faced before.

The hawk fae king, Tiernan, must find a bride, but being a tyrant king, or so his people believe, he must find a woman who would help him to change his people's view of how he and his queen shall rule.

Princess Ritasia isn't anything like what he'd envision his queen would be like. Rough and tumble, unafraid of danger, and speaking her mind, the lady might just be the one for him.

The princess believes the king is a tyrant, at least at times. But she discovers he's not all that he seems, and she wants to learn even more.

The problem is that Ritasia stumbles across an ancient queen's magical artifact and nothing will ever be the same between her people, his, and what is dug up at the ancient fae dig site.

This was such an entertaining read for anyone who loves lively comical fantasies and is suitable for the very young to those young-at-heart.   King Tiernan scowled at the mess his father had gotten him into...all because the heartless man had to die. Hawk fae kings were to immediately marry as soon as they were seated on the throne and a suitable bride could be found... Legend had it that the queen always met an early death - ordered by the king himself, although it was said that a secret order of assassins was given the task. Why? Because two sons or a son and a daughter could fight over ruling the kingdom. Civil war could ensue. So best to ensure the queen only had one offspring. And then, she no longer was needed. THE ANCIENT FAE by Terry Spear is simply PERFECTLY FEISTY WHIMSICAL FUN! This highly entertaining read is the fourth installment in Terry's World of Fae series. All of the books in this series can be read as standalones containing interconnected characters. However, I highly recommend enjoying all the books in this series as they are all fantastic! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this series and THE ANCIENT FAE is the best yet!  My full review has been posted at Reading Between The Wines Book Club.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***Received a code from the author to listen to and review the audio version of the book The cover is looks like a teenager with that dreamy I’m in love look.  She is beautiful, though I’m not sure that this cover grabs my attention.  It would be a mistake to miss it though :) I really love this series more with each book.  I love that this book brings back my favorite characters from book 1.  My son was estatic that the old characters were back.  The narrator is still the same…YAY!!!  I really love Jeanne Whitehouse as a narrator.  Stories from Terry have always come alive when I read them, and it takes a special narrator to have this happen when I’m listening.  My son and I listen to the audiobook in the car to and from school together. Ritasia is awesome as a lead because she is fearless and strong.  This is what I think all female leads should be.  She won’t leave anyone behind and fights for what she believes in.  Tiernan wants to change how his kind very their king and traditions.  I really admire what he stands for, and I chuckled at all the things Ritasia put him through.  It was a great adventure. I highly recommend this series to Fae lovin’ readers and Terry Spear fans. The only sad part for me is that book 5 isn’t an audiobook yet and that I really want to collect this series in paperback for my classroom to share these wonderful stories with my students.  My son hopes book 5 comes to audio very soon.  He really loves Terry Spear as an author and keeps asking me for more audiobooks from her.  I didn’t think there were any more YA appropriate audiobooks, but I just found a Vampire one that I have we can listen to next :)
