All is well in the Kingdom of Faeries.
Well, maybe not totally. The queen is waiting for the
arrival of her baby. If this one is not a male heir for the
throne, the king will find another wife… Good thing the
queen’s mother has a plan. She knows just what to do.
22 years later…..
All is not well in the Kingdom of
Faeries; the crops are failing, the rainbows are gone, the
unicorns are dying. All is darkness. No one is happy.
Except, the king, he has a son to take his throne one day.
Owletta is not like other humans. She
can’t get too happy or she flies. No one else does that as
far as she knows. If only the man in her dreams was real and
could take her away. It’s odd how he looks like her
Alconia is the only one not
joyously celebrating the wedding of her sister, Owletta to
Prince Hawke. Humans are just the most disgusting creatures,
especially Hawke’s brother Richard. And it doesn’t help that
the faery she was planning to marry is in the dungeon with
his brother for trying to kill her father, the king. Who
knew he was such a villain?
Alconia and Richard unexpectedly find
themselves together in the garden…in the rain…naked. One
thing leads to another and Richard is unfairly banished from
faery land. By a very bad stroke of luck, Alconia finds
herself in the human realm and very much in need of
Richard’s help. And as luck would have it, Richard just
happens to need her help, too.
Will this comedy of errors have a happy
It just goes to show you that surface
impressions aren’t always right. When I first sat down to
read A Faery Gathering, I was not impressed. I
thought to myself, what is this? But I was determined
to read the entire book and give my honest opinion. So, here
It’s written like a child’s faery story
which is what put me off at first but later made perfect
sense. Then I actually started paying attention to small
things that kept poking at my brain and imagination for
attention. The dialogue creates an image of faeries flitting
around, never staying too long in one place but entertaining
anyway. The plot is perfectly amusing. Not to mention the
only faery rat in existence which is okay since it will
never die. The giggles went on for several minutes.
A Faery Gathering is Legend meets Abbot
and Costello’s “Who’s on First” meets teenage/beach party
movies of the 60’s. I LOVED this book. I Joyfully Recommend
A Faery Gathering.
