DeeJay Reviews: Lore of Fei by @kathleea #paranormal #ya


This is a repost from

Lore of Fei
by Kathleen S. Allen

Publication Date: May 3, 2012

Genre: Paranormal YA

DeeJay's Rating: 

Ariela is a mutant faerie, born without wings. No wings, means no magic. The Veil of Enclosure that separates the faerie land of Fei from the human land of Hege begins to dissolve. The humans go through the Veil in order to steal the faerie children and enslave them. They clip their wings so the faerie children lose their magic and die soon afterwards. 

The Faerie Council asks Ariela to go to Hege as a spy to ascertain the human's plans for Fei. She has to stop the warmongering humans before the faerie children are lost forever and repair the Veil. But, only a silver-winged faerie can repair it and no silver-winged faerie has been born. It is up to Ariela. But, Ariela has no magic, or does she?

Faeries vs. humans, who will win?

I can't honestly say I enjoyed this book.

For me, the plot dragged and worst of all, the characters were flat and boring. For a book about faeries, I expected to be dazzled. I love books about the Fae/Fei (The Fever Series is one of my fave series period). But this book just didn't do it for me.

I will admit, there were sparks of excitement but overall it was pretty lackluster. Ariela, the main character, is the only faerie with no wings, yet I didn't see her as special. I found her rebellious and brave, yes, but she didn't grab me as a strong female lead. Most of the characters failed to impress me as they were one-dimensional and not very interesting. Not even Kel the Warlord and antagonist of the story. Even if I don't like the lead character I expect to like the antagonist and I didn't in this case.

Even though I read the entire story, I'm sorry to say that I cannot recommend this book. It just didn't have that spark that I was looking for.
