I loved the ending. Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts. I reread it as an adult not that long ago and it is still really creepy. Mar 06, Damon rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Internet Speculative Fiction Database.
I contented myself with looking it up on Goodreads and I saw the alternate cover linked to this revie I am shelving this with my other facetious “to-not-read-ever” reviews, even though I have nothing against the book. The plot moves along fairly well after the initial slowness, and there are some interesting twists and developments with secret societies and ancient history. I had a difficult time closing it to go to sleep at night.
If you are a book connoiseur like me, track down the Bantam Spectra 1st paperback edition with the gatefold cover art by Chris Hopkins, which is incredible.
Be the first to discover new talent! A family moves to a rural area, settling in an older home. Midway through, that was my least favorite aspect of an otherwise impeccable tale maybe conspiracy theories aren’t my thing! I was a tad concerned after reading some of the comments but it’s a gripping read. For me, the nice mix of characters in the family contributed to the plot, but Sean and Patrick are the stars. Feist’s “Riftwar Saga”, and was I ever super-glad I did! His magical beings live in a different, sometimes overlapping, reality, with it’s own rules.
I’d say no update necessary…give us a Book 2: Clearly some small amount of research has gone into this and the world of Faerie is brought to life with some degree of magic. It’s about the Hastings, including their dog and cat, coming into contact with the world of Faerie which is practically in their back yard. If you’ve read The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning, her fae are also highly sexualized, but they have a comedic quality.
But it was sloppily and disturbingly written.
It’s the only book that I’ve really had that type of reaction to.
It isn’t as “cool” as it thinks it is, and the female characters were off. That scene alone told me more than I ever wanted to know about Raymond E. Nov 30, Mein Hime rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Trivia About Faerie Tale.
Aug 29, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Retrieved 6 September It would definitely need modernising. I wish a studio would option it for production. I bought this book because I was a big fan of Raymond E. Mar 21, Dee rated it really liked it Shelves: I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone who really loves urban or mythic fantasy. Feist somehow makes it all seem so plausible, that when a Troll begins to menace some children under a bridge, it can make you shiver.
Basically, it’s the equiv pages in and really enjoying the pacing of this story. I had forgotten the details of the plot so this was almost like a fresh read.

Adult Fiction – Book with a cabin in a forest with a hole in cover to continue picture on page turn [s]. Typically, he sets his stories in the Realm he first began to create with “Magician: The weaving of the tale is the star in this book, not individual characters. A great read that draws upon those fabulous Celtic myths, letting the reader in on the dark side of the fae. If you want a good take on a similar theme, I recommend just about anything by Charles De Lint or Holly Black — steer clear of this one however.
I interacted a bit with the author on FB and he made a comment about updating the book. Feist and I must say I enjoyed it. Feist’s psyche, and when i realized that nearly every subsequent book he wrote up until when I stopped giving him the benefit of the doubt ALSO included a similar scene, I gave up on him as an author and literally threw all the Feist books I owned from that period in the garbage.
Ok, first let me go ahead and say that this is a true “GoodReadsstar-rating”, that is “it was ok” and nothing else.
