I am lamenting the end of this book and can't wait for the sequel, 'Ballad'!,
This review is from: Lament: 1 (Books of Faerie) (Paperback)
I bought this book purely because it is written by Maggie Steifvater. I loved 'Shiver' and 'Linger' and I figured if they were anything to go by then 'Lament' would be just as amazing.
'Lament' is a novel about love, faeries, good and evil and I just want to say right now for the record - it's awesome!
It is about a sixteen year old girl Cello player called Dee who starts to notice extraordinary things happening. Then she meets a boy called Luke, who wants to kill her, and yet she is still attracted to him. She discovers that the extraordinary things that are happening all around her are occurring because she is a Cloverhand, someone who can see faeries. Except the faeries in this novel are not the traditional type of faeries. They are dangerous and deadly, some are evil, and they are out for Dee's blood!
I could not put this book down I found it so gripping and it really had me engrossed!
Maggie Stiefvater has created and brilliant story of romance and mystery with a lot of suspense and danger and the faeries are actually quite scary and malevolent! She has put a really amazing and unique twist on the idea of faeries.
I loved this book and I have preordered the sequel!
