Faerie Queen by Jennie Taylor
Rating: 4.5 stars
Okay, I don’t know where to begin. This book was awesome! It was fun, cute and wonderful.
The story is about a girl Renee, who is in love with her best friend Cecilia. Cecilia happens to be a Faerie princess who has to choose a prince to marry. But since she doesn’t want to marry then, she takes Renee with her to the Faerie world an tells them she’s her choice in hopes that it would deter the King from asking her to marry someone and she would get time to go back to high school. But the plan fails and they are both stuck in the land. The story is about how they get out of the mess an the struggles of Renee trying to confess her love to Cecilia.
Now, to say what I thought about the story, i’ll say it in parts:
Cover: I loved the cover, I always love the hand drawn like covers. And this one captures Renee and Cecilia rather well. It’s a pretty one.
Plot: The plot was well written. I liked how they kept getting into one trouble after another and all the mess and how they got out of it. The struggles of Renee seemed real and not forced. The characters were believable. I did find some places needed to be explained better , but overall I loved it.
Writing: The writing was beautiful. A lot of books I read usually makes me wonder what is going on but this one didn’t give me any questions. It was truly enjoyable. But I did feel like the story could have been fleshed out a bit more. Maybe that’s just cause I like the story and wanted more of it.
Characters: So, this was he first LGBTQA genre novel I read, because I hadn’t come across any before. So, I didn’t know what to expect in it. I just adored how Renee loves Cecilia and how she struggles with it. It was awesome. And the King was so awesome. I like him so much I wished there was more of him in the book. Overall they were realistic an awesome.
Why I didn’t give it five stars: OK, so this book was wonderful and I would have given it five stars but there were a few places I felt could be written more. Like I wish there was more of the book in the book.
I don’t know if there is a sequel but I hope there is. There is a lot here that could be made into a sequel.
Anyway, I loved the book and thought it was beautiful.
