4.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 7 Jan 2008
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Anita Palmer believes that she is an ordinary girl, simply excited for her sixteenth birthday, and the plans her new boyfriend has made. She thinks nothing of the strange dreams she's been having. But when her birthday ends in disaster and the dreams get more and more vivid, Anita begins to feel afraid.

Then she is swept into an entirely different world, the world in which her boyfriend--and Anita--really belong. Here, she is Tania, the seventh princess of Faerie.

But all isn't joyful. The kingdom is mourning the death of her mother, and her eldest sister refuses to see her. And more importantly, there is a traitor in their midst...

THE FAERIE PATH was very charming and yet mysterious at the same time. The writing has a slight tendency to bog the reader down every once in a while, but the numerous plot twists keep the book from getting boring. Full of intriguing details and breathtaking descriptions, the story reads like your favorite fairy tale, and the surprise ending will leave you waiting in anticipation for the sequel, THE LOST QUEEN.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Diversion, Better than I expected 22 Feb 2007
By Anne-Marie G - Published on
More enjoyable than I expected. Anita is a pretty typical teenager, she has just turned sixteen as the events of the novel unfold. She and her boyfriend, Evan are on a boating trip when things go awry. The boat crash is the catalyst for all of the rest of the events.

Anita find herself transported/lured into a world that mirrors her own in many ways, but is also very different. Though she suspects that these are the hallucinations of her mind--due to the accident, she tries to cope as best as she can. In the world she is told she is the long lost seventh daughter of Oberon and Titiania (yup).

Antia/Tania suspects there is more to the story than that, and the rest of the book unfolds. It was sweet and attention grabbing. Though the book is about an older girl it would be appropriate for any age really, while Anita and Evan kiss and so on there isn't any overt displays of affection in the book to be worried about.

This is the begining of a series it looks like, as there is a second one in the works, one I wouldn't be unwilling to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Eye-crossingly boring... 24 Jun 2007
By Luna Eclipse - Published on
I wanted to like this book. I really did. I love books about fairies, and after just finishing Holly Black's Ironside, I was on the lookout for something equally as engrossing, entertaining, and moving. Unfortunately, I was barking up the wrong tree when I took this tripe off the shelf.

Let me start off by saying that the characters in this book are the flattest, most uninteresting lot I have ever encountered. Not a single one had any depth at all, with Anita/Tania being the worst. She wasn't so much a heroine as simply a cardboard cutout, just sort of propped up there and barely taking part in her own story. Although I guess I can't really blame her, as being bland and cliched seems to run in her family. Just look at the boring stock characters her sisters are comprised of...there's the nerdy bespectacled sister who just sits in the library all day and only wears drab dark clothing, there's the silly sister who likes to joke around, etc. Oh, and Lord Drake? He was such a generic, run-of-the-mill badguy, I'm surprised he wasn't twirling the end of his mustache around in typical villain fashion. The poor, downtrodden little assistant being the one who truly loved her? Wow, totally never saw THAT before *rolls eyes*

as for the storyline itself, it was weak, predictable and trite. Seriously, there was not a single surprise or twist to be had in this whole boring mess. And what I found to be especially irksome was how silly some of the scenes were. Like one of the previous reviewers pointed out, the story kicks off with Anita and her boyfriend driving around in a boat. How're these two 16-year-olds even allowed to be operating a boat without any adult supervision? Yeah, I know you're supposed to suspend disbelief and all, but that's just dumb. And when Anita is finally reunited with her fairy sisters after about 500 hundred years, what do they do? They immediately go out and order dresses. Yeah, they really missed her, eh?

There are far better YA fantasy and paranormal romance books out there, such as The Modern Faerie Tales trilogy by Holly Black or Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. Try those instead, you won't be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faerie Path is interesdting! 26 Mar 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on
The story is about a fifteen year old girl. The day before her birthday her boyfriend takes her on a ride in a motorboat, they hit a bridge, and both of them of them are taken to a hospital. She has a strange dream and wakes up on the floor. Before her dream she is given a magical blank book. Her boyfriend goes missing after the dream. She has another dream, or so she thinks. From then on she is in the magical land of Faerie. There she finds her six sisters and her true father. The rest of the book is a whirlwind as she finds out who she truly is.

It is a bit confusing as to who is good and who is bad. Her few travels to the "Mortal World" are very brief and cause a little more confusion, but the story and detail are wonderful. That fact that a few of the characters are from Shakespeare's play "A Midsummer's Night Dream," is really cool. This book is very exciting and descriptive. I look forward to book 2 in this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Faerie Story 22 Jun 2007
By Terri Rowan - Published on
After a boating accident with her boyfriend, Anita finds out that she is not who she seems to be. She's not really an ordinary teenage girl with occasional weird feelings of deja-vu and such--she is Tania, lost Faerie princess.

This is a little much for a girl to handle. She denies it at first, struggling to accept this startling and unbelievable revelation as fact, but once she does, she realizes that she's got a lot resting on her shoulders. It's up to Tania to save herself, the boy she loves, and the entire Faerie realm--and she's the only one with the power to do it.

Although this novel isn't immediately captivating due to occasionally less-than-brilliant writing, great characters, a magical world, and a fascinating plot quickly change that. What initially seems to be a mediocre fantasy is soon revealed to be an amazing magical adventure--if only that could be realized from page one!

Populated by amazing characters, the magical world that Frewin Jones has created in THE FAERIE PATH, will fascinate readers once they're pulled into the suspenseful plot. Once you're hooked, you won't want to put this book down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well.... 22 Jan 2011
By Marisa Mills - Published on
I want to hate this book; I really do, but I just can't. For all its problems and shortcomings, this book is like a sad-eyed little puppy that follows you home, and you just can't stand to slam the door in its face.

So the bad. The characters are fairly flat, and as someone who's read ahead in the series, that doesn't change much. There's also such a massive cast in such a short book, that it's difficult to really feel connected to any of the characters or get a feel for their real pesonalities. I think, perhaps, this could've been corrected if the novel was longer and had more build-up.

Also, the plot is pretty generic. If you've read any fairy tale or seen any fantasy movie ever, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out. There was really only one surprise for me and thinking about it, I really should've seen it coming.

The relationships? They're just sort of there. You don't see much of why the main character (Anita/Tania loves Evan). You kind of get a CliffNotes summary of how they ended up dating, but that's about it.

However, the descriptions are very lovely and fairy tale-like. The teenage characters do actually act and talk like teenagers. The author clearly did some research into the Renaissance to make the Elizabethan-esque realm of Faerie more realistic. There were also some nice, little random bits that were creative.

Overall, this book is okay. It's not going to win any awards for originality, but it's fun. It's light; it's cute. It's sparkles and fairies, and I love it. It's fantastic in a total had-a-rough-day-at-work-and-need-a-pick-me-up-sort sort of way.
