Update: Got Books!! and review

I'm a Part of the Event Called Got Books over at:

and boy will I be giving one lucky person a real treat :D I have emailed the author of Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter, and she is mailing me a signed book plate for this book. So one lucky person will get this wonderful Faery book (reccomended by the amazing Melissa Marr) signed by the author. So be sure to come back here July 23 and enter into the contest post!!!!!

and now for my review:


Forget everything you think you know about faeries. . . .

Creatures full of magic and whimsy?

Not in the Oakenwyld. Not anymore.

Deep inside the great Oak lies a dying faery realm, bursting with secrets instead of magic. Long ago the faeries mysteriously lost their magic. Robbed of their powers, they have become selfish and dull-witted. Now their numbers are dwindling and their very survival is at stake.

Only one young faery—Knife—is determined to find out where her people's magic has gone and try to get it back. Unlike her sisters, Knife is fierce and independent. She's not afraid of anything—not the vicious crows, the strict Faery Queen, or the fascinating humans living nearby. But when Knife disobeys the Faery Queen and befriends a human named Paul, her quest becomes more dangerous than she realizes. Can Knife trust Paul to help, or has she brought the faeries even closer to the brink of destruction?

Talented newcomer R. J. Anderson creates an extraordinary new fantasy world and weaves a gripping tale of lost magic, high adventure, and surprising friendship in which the fate of an entire realm rests on the shoulders of one brave faery rebel

I found this to be a great read, the charcter Knife is strong willed and funny. She doesn't go with the norm and becomes a great little fairy. I loved that the fairy's were small and that the romance wasn't cheesy or cliched. It was over all a great book and I reccomend it to all lovers of fantasy, faeries, or well to anyone
