The faeries that live in the Great Oak are a shadow of their former selves. No longer possessing the ability to perform their magic, they never leave the Oak, fearful of the world around them, in particular humans.

Knife is different from the other faeries, not content to merely exist. faery_rebelShe wants to find out where the faery magic went and why. Her quest for the truth leads Knife to disregard not only her people’s customs, but also to disobey her Queen by befriending a human.

While I love urban fantasy, this was my first book that was a bit heavier on the fantasy than the urban and I must say that I really enjoyed it. I got caught up in Knife’s quest to find out where the faery magic went and there was just enough mystery surrounding who she could trust and count on to help her and who was an enemy.

Without giving anything away, I was a wee bit disappointed in the direction that the author went with elements of the ending. I feel that she took the expected route and the story may have faired better if she had gone out on a limb, so to speak, and taken a different approach to elements of the subplot.

But with that being say, I really enjoyed Faery Rebel: Spell Hunter and I look forward to the next book in the series.
