Return of the Fae by Lynn Cahoon.

 

 

ARC supplied by Lyrical Press.

Having reviewed and loved the first in this series A Member of the Council, I was pleased to get to review book two. This one picks straight up into the story. Parris’ background is still a puzzle, she needs to focus on learning what she should have been taught as a child, and its hard work catching up in the few weeks she has to learn her magic control. Ty is still feeling distracted with his desire for her but he knows to help her best he needs to keep distance. That’s harder than it seems though when they both feel so strongly attracted to each other. Ty feels they need to seek out a mentor from his past to work out some answers, so they take a road trip….and the action starts. Twists and turns, betrayals and deception – they aren’t sure who to trust any more.

I love Parris of course, and Ty- he’s so determined to do what is right and yet his feelings for Parris have jerked his traditional black and white approach, and made him be more flexible. Parris – well she’s such a lady. Cares for her family and friends, determined to always do what’s right, and yet struggling with this new world and danger she’s been thrust in. We meet a couple of new people this time too – some Fae guardians, (I loved Toki) a witch water statue (she’d been made a statue for punishment) and a troll. Keeps things interesting 🙂 and adds to the feel of fantasy mixed with reality that the story takes. The plots are fairly simple but neatly done, and tightly wrapped up with excitement and drama. They work really well considering the short length of the book. I had a small inkling of who the betrayer was from the clues set up, and was glad to be proved right! However I have no idea what’s going to happen next, something to look forward to – and hadn’t a clue this book would take the direction it did. Lynn likes to keep her readers guessing and that’s good – I want to be interested in what’s going to happen in a series. Though this adventure ties up well, it ends up with Pariss and Ty still seeking answers about Coven X, and setting the scene for their next part in the series. I want to have the next book Now!

As usual its well written and edited, and it’s 113 pages long. I don’t have pricing info yet. Its available July 1, 2013.

Stars: another solid four – great story that kept my interest, will go in my keepers file but a bit short for me. Still, once I have the whole series of novels like this I love to read them back to back and that then isn’t a problem.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
