Review by Sue Brooks
WOW — This collection contains six faery novellas by six amazing authors.
All six novellas are well written, smooth flowing, and very easy to read. I found it interesting how each author put their own spin the same type of fae creature described in more than one book — yet they were so different!!!
I loved them all, but I was asked to read the book by Julia Crane. Since they are all short novellas, this was easy to do in a small amount of time. I found Arrangement downright fascinating!!! (In the book, it is titled Arrange.) I loved Tulupea and Michael — two awesomely described and very sweet characters. I loved how the author got you slowly into the story and then when Tulupea arrived on earth, how she found out her true mission while there and the things that she had to do to stay safe. I don’t write spoilers – and that is hard to do when you have to write a review of such a short type book. Arranged (or Arrangement) was a fantastic story and I hope that Julia doesn’t disappoint and continues the story in another book.
I will warn you that the majority of these novellas are fast moving, easy reads and you will find it hard to put them down until you finish them!!!
I received a complimentary copy of Arrangement (Arranged) in exchange for my honest review. All opinions shared are 100% my own. However, to give a true honest review of the entire collection, I did purchase the book and read the rest of the selections included in the book.
Review by Ann-Marie Kiser
The six novella’s in this package are FANTASTIC!! I really loved each and every one of them. Personally my favorite of the collection is Arranged by Julia Crane. I really wanted more!!! These 6 novella’s are quick reads but they will keep you on the edge of your seat! There was a bit of romance in them in some way or another, but they are definitely YA novellas. Each of these are well written and well thought out.
The Sway by Amy Patrick:
I really enjoyed this one! Vancia is a high school senior who just wanted to paint. Her father does not think this is appropriate for his daughter and sends her to LA for modeling. Before she leaves, she finds out she is to marry someone her father has chosen but she has never met. In LA, Vancia sees a poster that includes a guy she hasn’t seen in years. She tries to figure out if it is really him or if it is someone who looks like him since she was told he died. Vancia decides to attend the wedding ceremony but has no intention of getting married. When she is there she also sees someone she hasn’t seen in years.
I was so into this book. I couldn’t wait to find out what Vancia was up to. I am really looking forward to reading more.
Arranged by Julia Crane:
Tulupea, a fairy princess, is called to Earth by her mother who has found a human mate for her. Although she is in love with another fairy, she follows her mother’s orders and arrives on Earth to find it almost a complete wasteland. The wars over magic have completely destroyed the planet. She is there to help her mother and others heal Mother Earth. Through DNA, her mother plans to create half fairy/half human offspring to help repopulate Earth. The human the queen has chosen to mate with her daughter is a part of a group who believes that anyone with magic should be killed. We follow Tulupea and Micheal as they decide if going through with creating offspring is worth it. Meanwhile they form a bond in which they can’t imagine being without the other.
This was my favorite of the six novella’s. I do love Julia Crane’s writing anyways, but I feel like in the short amount of writing in the book, she creates developed characters and plot to follow. I can’t wait for more.
