Books I’ve Enjoyed: The Changelings: War of the fae book 1
Jayne Sparks, a potty-mouthed, rebellious seventeen-year-old and her best friend, shy and bookish Tony Green, have a pretty typical high school existence, until several seemingly unrelated incidents converge, causing a cascade of events that change their lives forever. Jayne and Tony, together with a group of runaway teens, are hijacked and sent into a forest, where nothing and no one are as they seem. Who will emerge triumphant? And what will they be when they do?
This novel grabbed me and refused to let go.
Not only was it a quick, gripping and easy read the plot was believable – the characters acted appropriately and it was often downright funny. I will never be able to go to the bathroom while camping again without cracking up. I laughed, I cried, and laughed some more.
My absolute favorite thing was Jayne, the protagonist. She did not simply accept things. She did not make stupid mistakes just to further the plot, she resisted, she fought and she has a great smart sassy funny kick-butt attitude. I really enjoyed reading through her perspective.
The cover is great, the editing inside the novel is very professional and well done. I had zero complaints in that regard.
The plot was unique as well as well developed. I am not exactly sure what I was expecting when I first started this book, but what I discovered left me pleasantly surprised and delighted.
I look forward to reading more in the series, and will be purchasing them soon.
I have been trying to think of anything negative that I should include in the review, but really the only thing would be that it does end on a cliffhanger, but not an unreasonable one. The only unbelievable part of the novel was very early on, with Tony and a gun. It felt a bit to glossed over, otherwise, everything was spot on.
If you like sassy heroines, fantastical suspense and enjoy a bit of magic, this book will not disappoint.
I would rate the cover a 4, the plot a 5, the characterization a 5, the editing a 5 and the world building a 4
