The War of the Fae series — is a completely imaginative and unique series of books by one of my newly favorite authors — Elle Casey.
War of the Fae: Book 1 (The Changelings) — we are introduced to trucker-mouthed rebel, Jayne Sparks and her sweetly shy but incredibly intelligent BFF Tony Green.
Jayne Sparks feels like a misfit and lives the ordinary life of a high school girl. However, what starts out as ordinary soon turns into extraordinary as Jayne and Tony (by process of elimination) are taken on an incredible journey. Jayne and Tony’s adventure proves to both of them that they are far more special than either would have ever dreamed. A fantasy world is opened up to them and their dream of having a place where they truly belong is within arms reach.
There are a lot of moments in this book that made me laugh out loud.
I love the character Jayne. She is by far one of my most favorite book characters ever. Her potty-mouth and insecurities are endearing. Her bad-assery knows no bounds. She is a smart and strong female character who doesn’t even begin to recognize just how smart and strong she really is.
Each character that we come upon in the first book are part of the foundation for the other books in the series. Trust me when I say that you will fall in love with these characters.
What I love about Elle Casey as an author — and in particular as the author of this series, is that she pulls up the right amount of build with the main plot and subplots. She uses her wordsmith abilities to craft her fae world to perfection without dragging on and on about small details. (seriously, I read a book once where the author went into painstaking detail about the sound of a creaking bed spring)
I highly recommend this book and series to anyone who loves adventure and fantasy stories of YA proportions! This particular book — The Changelings is FREE on Amazon.com! 🙂
