Nessa Donnelly never expected to see her estranged and eccentric father again, but a phone call summons her back to her hometown and to the hospital in which the elder Donnelly lies in a comatose state for which his doctors have no explanation. Bit by bit, long-buried family secrets emerge, and Nessa begins to realize that those secrets were kept hidden from her for a reason.
She also realizes that there is something in the woods behind her father’s house that he never told her about, something that can’t be explained.
And she is also not as alone in his house as she thought she was…
First of all I have to admit that when I started reading Fey I wasn’t so sure if I was going to like the book but the more I read the more I got into story. I’m a big fan of stories involving fey/fae/faeries/fairies (however you want to spell it) and I gotta say that this one was really good.
Like I said, I really had to get into the story and it took me a good three chapters before I was really enjoying it but once I did I was cheering Nessa on to find whatever made her father ill and get to the bottom of the whole fey thing that was going on in the woods. Nessa was a fantastic character to read about, by the way. I loved her!
The villain in the story was pretty scary, at least to me. I won’t say who or what it is because I don’t want to spoil the book to anyone but it freaked me out. Fey villains always scare me, to be honest.
But anyway, the writing was excellent as I’m used to with this author and I thought she did a great job with her very first fantasy book so I can’t wait to read more books by her in this genre!
