This review is from: Good Faeries Bad Faeries (Hardcover)
I just recently got Faeries as well, and it seems that all the little "flaws" I noticed in that one were definitely fixed in this one! Good Faeries/Bad Faeries is a breathtaking guide to the faerie world, not just by old stories but through personal experience. I was also happily surprised to see how Froud had included non-British fairies as well. As a Finnish reader I was excited to see our little para creature pictured in the book! And I agree with Mr. Froud, that's most certainly how para looks like! It was also great to see pictures of the Faerie Oracle in larger size. There were so many tiny details that I hadn't even noticed in the oracle. Also, I got much better insight on the faeries of the oracle deck. It almost feels like we have the Holy Trinity of the Faerie here: Faeries, Good/Bad faeries and the Oracle. If these don't open the doors to the magic realms then nothing will!
