Happy Valentine’s Day weekend! I hope you are spending it well and safe and with those you love. I considered writing a review about a love story, but I confess that I’m not much of a romance reader. I like fantasy and I like that there’s romance in the fantasy novels, but I also like that the romance isn’t the dominant plot or I’d probably never finish the book. However, today’s review is all fantasy with a romance story thread.
This novel set was a great read. The main character has been training to be a stunt woman in movies but is working as a ‘gofer’ for the movie production company. Meanwhile, Faerie has recently opened up to the human world and they are set to have a race, kind of like The Amazing Race. There is one human, one faerie creature team up and they compete for a grand prize of a wish granted from the faerie king.
The story does get a little ‘Hunger Games’ in style when the contestants’ lives are on the line in the race and there are a few casualties along the way.
The main character is strong but a little irritating at the beginning. However, as the story progresses, she gets better and you’re glad you stuck with the book. The ending, or rather the end of the faerie games, is a bit of a let down. It was kind of expected but not super satisfying. The book itself does end well though and was an enjoyable read.
So if you’re looking for a bit of fun and light reading with a touch of romance this Valentine’s Day weekend, then check out this series.
