Fairytale Christmas (The Fair Folk Saga #1)
by Merrie Destefano
What is it about:
Three thousand years ago, a war began between the immortals and the mortals. It's a war that continues to this day...
Before history began, a legendary queen battled a foreign army, braved the death of her husband, and faced betrayal at the hand of someone she trusted. This is the story of Eire, Queen of the Faeries, the Immortal One, and the leader of the Tuatha de Danann.
To this day, her homeland, Ireland, bears her name, and this is the story of the war that drove the Immortal Ones into exile. It's also the tale of how she found help from an unexpected place, leading her to a love like she had never known before.
Fairytale Christmas is a story that spans thousands of years. It's also the beginning of all of our fairytales and legends; it's where mortals and immortals survive because they love one another, proving that love is the greatest gift of all.
This is the first installment in the Saga of the Fair Folk, a journey that lasts until the end of time.
What did I think of it:
I usually don't want anything Christmassy before December 6th, but the cover of this novella was too gorgeous to resist.
And luckily it also turned out less Christmassy than the title suggests, making it a beautiful read for any time of the year.
This is a story about Eire, Queen of the Faeries. It is a beautiful, bitter-sweet tale of betrayal, loyalty and love. I was hooked from the start and finished it in one sitting. I could easily picture Eire and the trials she goes through. There was one scene where things got a bit confusing, but apart from that this is a magical and suspenseful tale.
I will certainly keep an eye out for more.
Why should you read it:
It's a beautiful Fantasy read.
