Review of Ever Fire by Alexia Purdy
Reviewed for the author via Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Fanatics Goodreads Group.
This review is based on an e-book version.
An eventful continuation of Author Alexia Purdy’s A Dark Faerie Tale series, which commenced with “Ever Shade” and will continue in “Ever Winter,” “Ever Fire” is a rollicking and rousing tale of the Faerie World. Ms. Purdy is superb at world-building, giving us an entirely new version of the Fae, while still maintaining the separation of and character types from the Unseelie and Seelie Courts-the Seelie being not evil, yet not good in the human sense; the Unseelie being sadistic, torturous, and cruel-not to mention dictatorial and tyrant-ish.
In the earlier novel, Shade discovers that she is a “part-Fey Changeling,” that the father she never knew had been Fey. Now as her magical powers continue to develop (at astronomical rates on each visit to Faerie), so too does her scrying ability, and she quickly discovers that she is a wanted individual, wanted by the evil Unseelie Queen-and that she has a grandmother (and more kin to be discovered).
Readers who love Fae will glory in this new installment, which is fast-paced and lively, suitable for YA audiences as well as older.
