Winter Fae, Suza Kates


Winter Fae,  Suza Kates

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance, Fantasy/paranormal

The only other Suza Kates book I’d read was The Penance Stone , which I loved. I was hoping this was going to be a similar sort of read, but it feels much more YA to me, and though I enjoyed it it wasn’t one I’d read again. Its a story that’s well written and is easy to read, I just somehow felt detached from it though.
I kept feeling there was something missing, that I should know more of the past events, of where the sisters mum had been, of Jack, of the whole witchcraft scene they’d only recently discovered but as this was book one I was puzzled. Then I found the prequel novella… maybe if I’d read that I might have got more from this one. Who knows? It wasn’t hard to pick up, just that there was that slight feeling of oddness.
I enjoyed the scene, the Fae, the sisters and the quest. Loved Jack and Tate, would have liked to know more of their background ( maybe that’s in the novella though?)  and was hoping for something more to develop from some jealousy at the
Winter Queen’s palace….but it didn’t. There’s lots of action but somehow all the solutions seemed very neat, and I never really got that sense of danger, that they were living on the edge of disaster, that some of them might not make it. each time there was another problem crop up I just knew that they, or someone else, would have the solutions…and I needed to feel that disaster loomed to make it a five star read. Its was fun, a good novel but for me not a great one.

Stars: Three, a good read but maybe if I’d read the novella first I’d have got more engaged with it.

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 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.
