being exposed to overly adult themes It s like a dark fae story mixed with some old school Tolkien Almost a Labyrinth feel to it and I LOVE Labyrinth It was witty, and easy to follow, and easy to keep the menagerie of characters separate Illarial sure had a way with comforting others she was like walking Xanax I wouldn t trust her as far as I could throw her boney, pointy body Nothing about Sylphi made her feel warm and fuzzy The girl radiated cold like an open window It already had been a long day for her And it s only the butt crack of dawn I actually keep checking every few days since I finished wondering if book two out yet Sadly, it s not, at least the last time I checked This is a YA book I would offer to my 12 year old son and read alongside him If you like urban fantasy but HEAVY on the fantasy, and enjoy YA I would most definitely recommend reading this book I had a breakthrough last night while devouring the last 80% of this book I finally understand Alexia s writing style Some reviewers including myself have stated that the first part of her books are a bit slow I said that about Reign of Blood which haunts me I cannot stop thinking about it and others have said it about this book I don t necessarily think that this is what is actually going on Yes, they are slow moving But little do you know that Alexia is weaving her magic word spell I had a breakthrough

But little do you know that Alexia is weaving her magic word spell When I picked this book up Sunday night I couldn t focus on it I put it down after only reading it for a half an hour or so I thought that it hadn t captured my imagination yet Boy, was I wrong I couldn t STOP thinking about this book I didn t even realize I was hooked Life the blog my job got in the way of me reading Sunday night and it was driving me batty Alexia is so sublte when introducing her story and characters She doesn t open with fireworks and flashes She weaves a truely addictive story.This fae world is unlike any other one I have encountered I don t read a lot of Faery stories As a matter of fact, up until now I thought Julie Kagawa pretty much was the be all and end all of the fae and dreamy fairy boys I WAS WRONG This book is so muchMs Purdy s world is darker than most supernatural books I have read Shade is not playing on her home court and it shows If that girl hadn t had some major help she would never have made it out of there The male fae with an exception oh, be still my beating heart Dreamy I ll be honest I was not impressed with Shade throughout most of the book I don t think we are meant to be Maybe city girls can sympathize with her being throw into the wilderness but I found her whining.well annoying My opinion of her competely changes by the end of the book.Off to read Ever

herself a freak But then one day everything she thought about herself and the world around her changed what events will that change bring forth and will Shabe be able to accept those changes in her life or will she crumble and give into hopelessness and despair Answer to all those questions is what awaits the readers in this epic journey called Ever Shade Cover thought The cover is just plain gorgeous Simple and very true to what the readers can expect from this book.Ever Shade being the first book in this trilogy gives us insight on the fairy realm and Shades hidden powers well not all of them , but a few So keeping that in mind , the cover is absolutely justified Things i loved about this book Every single freakin thing about this book was awesome Not a single moment of boredom If i had my way i would have devoured it in a single day But no , that could not be a reality Sighs Anyhoooo , what matters is that i finished the book and OH.MY.GOD Seriously , what a journey it has been I m reeling in the effect of tha awesomness And i think i should be thanking Author Alexia Purdy for that That woman writes like a GOddess 2 things i absolutely loved about her writing style first , the whole hearing reading the thoughts of the character you know when they talk to themselfs I find that really funny and i loved the fact that Alexia made use of that kind of writing technique And secondly , i LOVED the way she has described every single aspect in this book Now now , dont think that its some sort of thesis or anything that she has stacked pages of when i say i loved her description , i meant the way she uses her words to describe the atmosphere around you It actually feels like you are right there , the winds , the mountains , the village town , the action dear lord everything I could feel the serenity of being at the mountains and fountains and the forests , the fear of the unknown , the shyness of being kissed for the first time , the pain , the sorrows , the hatred I could envision the seelie courts , the rooms , the whole atmosphere of fairy realm ahh sighs happily I m totally in love with the way she writes The characters in the book were awesome as well I found myself liking almost all of them Shade being my favourite At times she acted out as a child curious to know things The way she asked questions upon questions had me giggling and thinkin Slow down there girlie , you re like an express train right now and at times ahe just zapped into a complete Warrior mode scared of nothing and clearing her path Dylan was my second most fav character Awww i loved him sooo much Cant wait to readabout him I have an eerie feeling about certain things , but i dont want to get into it right now I also loved the pace at which the story kept on moving forward It was just perfect , giving you many things to look at and learn about like i said earlier it felt like the reader of the book is right there seeing and experiencing everythin with their own eyes I loved the whole journey and what we could learn about the fey realm , and i cant wait to readCertain theories and ideas and also points have started buzzing around in my head as to what the second book in this awesome trilogy be about I also have a feeling that certain unexplained and unanswered questions will be answered in that book Duh captain obvious Ohh , the eerie feeling just crept up again Shudders This was definitely aJOURNEY OF EPIC PROPORTIONSfor me and i enjoyed every minute and every second of it Recommended for readers who enjoy reading about hot feys who can kill you with their touch and also for fans who want an all inclusive paid trip to the exotic fairy realm and back This is that one trip you wont regret taking Check this out for sure I m not normally one to read books on Faeries but I must say this one had me intrigued from page one till the end Its filled with mystery, action and magic and a compelling storyline that I read in one sitting Steady paced storyline, with a great cast of supporting characters, chapters that flowed smoothly and an intriguing plot I enjoyed the determination of the main characters, her life was not as it seemed She always thought she was different and upon meeting Jack her life was thrown into I m not normally one to read books on Faeries but I must say this one had me intrigued from page one till the end Its

thought existed Shade always new something was different the voices within, had no real meaning until she met Jack Upon Jack discovering Shade and her hearing voices, he takes her back to his world where Shade is told she is the key to saving his land Here Shade discovers she is Part Fae but Shade is in denial Feeling somewhat pressured yet compelled to help, Shade embarks on a trip to the fountain to obtain the liquid that will save this land of Fae and stop the wars within Twists and turns are thrown at Shade and along her travels, she is introduced to many some evil, some good, she learns to embrace what she has within Shade discovers her blood lines,and along the way she also discovers how to use the magic within This is just the beginning of an intriguing series, I alone rated it on Alexia s compelling storyline As I have not read many books on Faeries I really enjoyed it The addition of the Teleen line was certainly a treat and the fact that Shade was immune to it evenso Interim blue is filled with action, adventure, mystery, magic and mayhem and I m sure for all the readers out there who enjoy Faeries then this is for you I eagerly await book 2 to see where Shade and Dylans relationship goes, I m hoping that we see a littledepth into the characters, and the connection between the worlds will Shade return home to normal teenage life Alexia Purdy has jumped leaped and bounded full throttle ahead into this series, giving us readers a fantastic insight into the world that she has created ,compelling characters, and a storyline thats draws you into the pages at every turn How often does a really fresh YA fantasy come along that is completely appropriate for younger YA readers Alexia Purdy has done it with Ever Shade Shade, a teen who hasn t ever really been comfortable in her own skin, has a secret, she hears voices, and can do things others can t, but why Is there something wrong with her or is her difference magical One minute Shade is a human teen, the next she is thrown headlong into the world of the fae, a world she thought real only in tales and ficti How often does a really fresh YA fantasy come along that is completely appropriate for younger YA readers Alexia Purdy has done it with Ever Shade Shade, a teen who hasn t ever really been comfortable in her own skin, has a secret, she hears voices, and can do things others can t, but why Is there something wrong with her or is her difference magical One minute Shade is a human teen, the next she is thrown headlong into the world of the fae, a world she thought real only in tales and fiction Turns out she is part fae and the fate of the world may just be hanging on her shoulders, and she thought dealing with her human life was tough Ever Shade is filled with adventure, warriors, danger and even some cute fae boys, because come on, this is fantasy for teens, right Alexia Purdy takes the time to fully develop her world, introduce the conflict, toss in tons of action and give us characters that grow as the story progresses Shade is a typical girl in so many ways, yet she steps up to the challenges put before her, afraid or not, and she isn t perfect, but she does try When she must become blood bound to a fierce Teleen warrior, neither are too happy about it, but I have to say, Shade is up for the challenge in the long run and there is some ever so slight romantic tension going on, but again, nothing a younger reader wouldn t understand or be able to relate to.Ms Purdy writes with a vivid detail, pulling the reader into the story, into each scene until Shade s world becomes all one can see The pace quickens each each turn of the page in this slightly dark faery tale, feeding the imagination the emotions, sights, sounds and actions of a magical world in peril.I highly recommend this to YA readers as a wonderful way in to the world of fantasy 4.5 Stars Series A Dark Faerie Tale, Book 1Publication Date October 24, 2012Publisher Lyrical Lit

several of the subsequent books that were also free, however I don t think this really lived up to my expectations I had trouble with the writing, which was very simplistic and did a lot of telling as opposed to showing There were even instances where conversation was used to tell me what people were doing instead of just showing me Ever Shade reads like a completed story, without the need for a series, which is a bit odd considering another hundred pages or so would be just enough to add the needed character depth and natural progression Our main character finds out her destiny within the first twenty percent of the book, and agrees to go along with it despite not knowing anything about the people around her There is so much travelling and conflict involved, but it sped by so quickly that it really just felt like they spent maybe three or four days travelling before a lot of coincidences made everything go much quicker.I can t really even say I know the characters very well as there were so many, and we are given so little time to get to know them Shade is from what I can tell super curious and really stubborn even really touchy at times She did a lot of things that didn t really make her seem capable or really all that smart, like following a guy you just met into the woods or asking the same questions multiple times and treating it all as new information And then we have the love interests which were basically placed in front of me in a super obvious way and then sort of neglected to show me how any of them were actually people.Overall I m sort of disappointed in this one I did enjoy Reign of Blood, which a book by thi author, and while it didn t overly impress me it was enjoyable enough to make me pick up her other freebies But this one sort of fell short, and I don t see me continue this one anytime soon I picked this up during its free period onand am grateful I didn t pay for it I couldn t make it 5% through before the typos self diluted instead of self deluded, the dust bellowed rather than billowed, etc , passive grammar, and boring main character drove me away I rarely don t finish a book, but this one was just unpalatable, and I had such high hopes for it because of the gorgeous cover and great sounding story. Despite the editing errors spacing, commas, random underline, etc , I think the basics of this story is great I even sense some possible love triangle scenarios though I haven t quite narrowed down who the two main competitors will be Unfortunately I thought the narration rambled a bit too much and explanations were a bit too straight forward I have hopes for this author I think the writing will mature with the next book in the series keeping my fingers crossed for it, anyway As for Sh Despite the editing errors spacing, commas, random underline, etc , I think the basics of this story is great I even sense some possible love triangle scenarios though I haven t quite narrowed down who the two main competitors will be Unfortunately I thought the narration rambled a bit too much and explanations were a bit too straight forward I have hopes for this author I think the writing will mature with the next book in the series keeping my fingers crossed for it, anyway As for Shade, she was alright as a character I thought when she mentioned, multiple times, that she was the eldest, it was by a fair amount, and that demanding her own room was, as she says, a privilege for all the responsibility she has since she s like the second parent Then you find out her younger sister is only 3 years younger than her For a bigger impact, and to make Shade sound less spoiled I think a larger age gap would have been an easy edit Also, for a single working mom of 4 you would think a large house, that somehow has an unused guest room, is at least a tad unnecessary Is this just an inconsistency or an oversight Either way, it makes it awfully convenient for Shade to just invite home a guest.I did enjoy reading about all the different supernatural beings and how they relate to each other, but I thought the speech patterns were all too similar and too casual Information and other bits also seemed repetitive.Overall, with some editing, this book has great potential
