Stephen (Phen) is on his travels looking for his wayward brother when he saves the life of a pirate and is rewarded with Trisha, a tiny fairy. During their quest to find Phen's brother Eric (who just happens to have stolen a magic necklace) and evading the pirates that inexplicably want Trisha back, the little fairy is morphing to human size to get friendly with Phen.
This is a very short fantasy romance tale that would have worked far better as a longer novel. The characters are likeable, but there isn't enough time for them to develop much depth plus there is no budding romance; one moment Phen thinks Trisha has nice eyes, the next they are naked in a waterfall. I was also a little bewildered as to why the pirates were hunting for Trisha; all they want is a full size woman that can keep them company, yet when the chase begins they have no idea Trisha can change her size. The action works well, but there is a little too much adventure stuffed into the plot. There are some good ideas and some sweet moments but ultimately "The Fairy and Her Giant" is a little jumbled, a tad rushed and concentrates a little too much on introducing ideas than fleshing out the characters.
Short sweet tale of a fairy called Trisha, who has been kept in a cage by pirates, but who is given to Stephen/Stephan? when he saves the life of the pirate captain.
He's searching for his brother, having lost all of his family, and seemingly knows nothing about the existence of fairies in his 'world'. She would like to find others like herself, as she realises that she is falling for her captive, who will eventually marry a woman of his kind...
But not is all as it seems, as she has magic powers that Tinkerbelle hasn't, so she gets to romance her man, whilst having an adventure at the same time, trying to save his brother and keep a step or few ahead of the pirates.
I thought this story had a good plot and could have been great but it wasn't developed enough. The characters weren't developed and I didn't connect with them, I know this was only a short story but I still think it is important that readers can relate to the characters. Parts of the story felt and I would have liked some more depth overall, this could definitely be developed into a longer and perhaps full length story.
However, the author is still young and she obviously has a great imagination and talent and I wish her all the best for her future writing career
