    Posted at my blog too Michelle s Paranormal Vault of Books I finished this quick read in less than a day, and I really enjoyed it I only had one problem with it, and that the ending was abrupt To me, it didn t tie up any of the loose ends at all I can t see anywhere that it is a series, as it could be one If it IS meant to be a series, then that ending is ok, BUT if its NOT, then that leaves me very unsatisfied.This is a fun book about Fae, we have a swoon worthy male, Ashton who is fae ex Posted at my blog too Michelle s Paranormal Vault of Books I finished this quick read in less than a day, and I really enjoyed it I only had one problem with it, and that the ending was abrupt To me, it didn t tie up any of the loose ends at all I can t see anywhere that it is a series, as it could be one If it IS meant to be a series, then that ending is ok, BUT if its NOT, then that leaves me very unsatisfied.This is a fun book about Fae, we have a swoon worthy male, Ashton who is fae except I have no clue as to what he looks like, NO descriptions of him at all, which sucks, I could not really bring up a good picture in my head, it s all from his point of view He spends his time now trying to fix humans at this camp, using his abilities to try and help them, as he is guilt ridden after a tragic death of a human friend when he was younger.This is a new twist on the fae, we have coffee Shops that offerthan coffee for the fae customers, the fae channel energy from humans these shops take payment from the fae and they point out good humans to channel from.Then we have a mystery girl Claire, who we do not know WHAT she is Ashton works at a farm to help rehabilitate troubled humans Claire is brought to this place by her adoptive parents to get her out of her depression, as her adoptive parents are fae, and they want to fix her, as she is no longer producing energy that they can feed off of They lead everyone at the camp to think she is human, but it s found pretty quickly by Ashton that she is muchthan human, but doesn t know exactly what she it Her way with animals is fascination, and some of the things she can do Ashton grows closer to Claire, and he felt the most amazing energy he has ever felt when she is happy over the baby animals, and it s all felt without even touching her He falls in love with her, and vows to protect her and not allow her to be harmed He finds out horrid things her adoptive parents have done to her, pimping her out for money, to let all these fae channel her energy She had learned to shut it down, and it s why she ended up at the camp.We then get some action when her adoptive parents come take her away, against her wishes, screaming and crying Ashton is heartbroken, and goes on this journey to find her, and in the process learns what she truly is.It s a good book, it really is, but I was left unsatisfied at the end, IF it s not a series, like I said Too many loose ends not tied up I just don t buy the They Lived Happily Ever After endings when the man saves the women I want to know how they get out the situation they find themselves in, how he keeps her safe, as her adoptive parents are not going to just let her go What they do with the information on who Ashton thinks her real parents are Do they approach them Are they going to be allowed to be together Will they have to go on the run How do they escape where he finds her at ok, I know one way, and I won t say, as it will spoil it for people who have not read it yet I also do not understand the name of this book, what is meant by Fae Not It makes no sense to me I do like the cover though, very pretty.That all being said It was written very well If there is a 2nd book I sure hope there is then I will for sure want to read it.I do recommend it Its still a fun read, and think most people will enjoy it, if you like this kind of book Which I do Got my fingers crossed for a sequel.Summary from Goodreads Ashton has never had a problem being able to turn heads, or being able to persuade humans do to whatever he wants After the accidental death of a childhood friend, Ashton knows all too well the dangers that come along with channeling humans and begins to resent his existence because of it Ashton now spends his time trying to fix humans at a therapeutic camp in his colony When Claire comes to the camp, not only is she different in the fact that she s shy and innocent, but his abilities don t seem to work on her either.Distraught, Ashton discovers who her real parents are and what Claire must be, but he knows he s also running out of time because anotherpowerful fae is erasing the memory that she even existed He must find her before they find him or the memory of Claire, the only girl he s ever loved, and the knowledge of what she truly is will be erased forever.

    Well, to begin with the cover is good, however I still think there should have been a bigger splurge If it was about fairies, the authour could have demandedcreativity, especially since book covers are essential to selling a book I can t really speak fairly since I didn t pick out this book from a bookshelf of equally talent stuffed books In fact, I got it i the midst of an impulse after realizing I could easily get giveaways as long as I reviewed them SO AWESOME I was instantly inte Well, to begin with the cover is good, however I still think there should have been a bigger splurge If it was about fairies, the authour could have demandedcreativity, especially since book covers are essential to selling a book I can t really speak fairly since I didn t pick out this book from a bookshelf of equally talent stuffed books In fact, I got it i the midst of an impulse after realizing I could easily get giveaways as long as I reviewed them SO AWESOME I was instantly interested, especially since it was closer to my usual genre.Since, Ishould be a positive person, I ll end this review on a good note and start with the problems interlaced with sneaky compliments of course Flaw number one, the writing Like loads of books I seem to find myself caught in, the story was delicious, with characters I was actually interested in However, the writing felt slightly rushed, as if the authour had so much inspiration and beauty in her thoughts that she just had to expel them as soon as possible Problem is, that creates an interesting story but not beguiling words Books need time Like flowers, they need to be nurtured and ground, sprinkled with nourishing water and a tugging sun Without time, they can t reach their full potential Honestly, this book could have been much better That was the main problem, this book neededtime Flaw number two, cheesiness It was sweet, no lie, bit somethimes it felt a tinny bit too cheesy It was the perfectly innocent novel, without any tugging attraction whatsoever It made the novel feel much less realistic This book needed that added, sultry feel It didn t fully capture the deeper emotions it dearly neeeded The authours seemed to shy away from adding a splash to their work For a book I assume aimed at teenagers, the authors needed to dive into the real world, instead of barely grazing the water.Flaw number three, okay, I get this may have absolutely nothing to do with the novel, but I feel kind of offened for Megan Summers Of the two authors, she seems to be completely and totally ignored on any other count than the actual book Maybe she did less work, but it still made me feel bad.Okay, time for the good bits I know how much you must be looking forward to it Awesomeness number one, the story All you have to read is the blurb posted on Good reads and you ll be instantly drawn in Ashton is honestly a cool character and his assumption that Claire will be obsessed with him is definitely not to be interpreted as generously self centred His determination to not use is abilities wrongly and to hurt as little people as possible is admirable and I cannot help rooting for him.Awesomeness number two, who Claire was Well, WOW What the authours did there was shocking I loved how they twisted such an interesting secret into the plot My advice though, what she was should have been mentionedoften to give it a gigger impact when we found out It was already slap worthy but it could have reached earthquake level Either way, it was scarily talented how the authour added that in.Awesomeness number three, the back and forth of Claire and Ashton s relationship Who knew I d love that bit so much I mean, thinking about it now, my throat is closing up with excitement Their you re playing me, I can t care about you, and I refuse to hurt you was soooo adorable I couldn t help but love the twist and turns in their relationship Sosince I really liked this novel, a four star it is No fives since I rarely get favourites I recommend this book For the full version, visit my blog heartbeatblogspot.co.ukThanks for reading

    A quick read since I couldn t put it down.Fae Not was truly a captivating read I m always partial to novels about fairies and this one incorporated both the idea of faes and of how vampires suck in the sense that faeries suck or channel energies from humans in order to feed.The male protagonist is Ashton, a camp counselor in the farm intended to help people with difficulties He s revealed to be one of the faes who feeds on the energy given by humans in order to replenish but as a self impose A quick read since I couldn t put it down.Fae Not was truly a captivating read I m always partial to novels about fairies and this one incorporated both the idea of faes and of how vampires suck in the sense that faeries suck or channel energies from humans in order to feed.The male protagonist is Ashton, a camp counselor in the farm intended to help people with difficulties He s revealed to be one of the faes who feeds on the energy given by humans in order to replenish but as a self imposed rule, he doesn t fraternize with the clients of the farm.Ashton meets Claire, a depressed girl who, to his inner turmoil, gives him pleasurable desires and conflicting emotions Claire, Ashton found out, could hardly be affected by his compulsions and commands and she also gives of such strong energy that s very hard to miss As the both of them learn to trust and be with the other,andof Claire s identity, her past, and the reason why she was sent to the farm is revealed But with that, the people who s after Claire becameandinsistent on putting her to use, pushing Ashton to do whatever it takes to save and protect Claire the only girl he has fallen in love with First off, I would just like to say that I appreciate very much the fact that this book is using Ashton s POV It s always refreshing to read a novel with a male s POV because usually, it s the girls that authors employ nowadays And well, it s a thrill to read the thoughts of the opposite sex.Secondly, I couldn t put the book down because I just liked reading about Claire and Ashton s interactions with each other It s not pretentious and overly done The romance isn t exaggerated and they were just very, very cute together Whenever they re together, it s just so entertaining.Although there were some grammatical errors, they re something that could easily be corrected Moreover, the conflict of the story was significant enough I just wished it wasdeveloped and the tension in the story was givenattention because it just felt so quick This leads me to the downsides of the book.At first, I couldn t really understand the whole purpose of the farm since the readers are just thrown into the story without any sufficient background at first I was just really glad that as the story unfolded, the farm, its purpose, the faes are introduced I guess that the lack of beforehand background was one of the few negative points of this story Secondly, the author forgot to provide the basic descriptions of the characters, especially on Ashton The readers are left the task to imagine him any way they want how he looks, the range of his age since there weren t any concrete descriptions put into place Futher, I felt like the ending was abrupt Things ended too quickly and there wasn t full resolution of the tension and conflicts that happened What happened to Frank What about Claire s true family What then I was really shocked when I reached the end of the book and I was like, That was the end I wantI believe that some of the issues weren t entertained and resolved yet and I would like to know how Claire and Ashton would ve managed them.Bottom line is, I want Book Two I want to know how things would progress and I want to readof Ashton and Claire

    I enjoyed this book quite a bit I had a hard time deciding how to rate it, because I love anything to do with faeries and the story was captivating, but ultimately it was the abruptness of the ending that decided me The plot itself was interesting and compelling and easily read within a day The story kept the reader s attention it was something the reader wanted to knowabout The interpretation of faeries was familiar enough to be understandable, but different enough to be interesting I enjoyed this book quite a bit I had a hard time deciding how to rate it, because I love anything to do with faeries and the story was captivating, but ultimately it was the abruptness of the ending that decided me The plot itself was interesting and compelling and easily read within a day The story kept the reader s attention it was something the reader wanted to knowabout The interpretation of faeries was familiar enough to be understandable, but different enough to be interesting Some of the interactions between the main characters were very believable as well, which I enjoy Verisimilitude is important when incorporating paranormal elements, I feel.I did feel that there were plenty of places for expansion, background, um fleshing out the story While I could understand what was going on, I was propelled forward on the idea that I would eventually understandor better, and that didn t precisely happen There were whole segments of world building that never got specific attention they were left to the reader to determine how they might have come into existence or why they mattered The farm, for instance, was something that readers understood the need for and could even envision how it came to be But there was quite a bit missing why these counselors, how could a business run with authority figures always acting so puerile How does one get a job at the farm Are there other places like it Just lots of background missing.Lots of places that might have filled in how the plot could happen It s reasonable to assume that someone is going to be irresponsible, but how, for instance, does the camp have someone who s so insensitive to the needs of the people they are supposed to be helping Even if it is selfish help, it s still the goal I didn t understand with such a small staff how the camp wasn tchoosy I was willing to be convinced it just wasn t there Also, Ashton s going to try and help her get her job back Really The ending was also very abrupt There were a lot of questions left unanswered, and a lot of follow up ignored The why and how was again missing I loved the what, and I was happy for the characters, but I was very interested in knowing the background that brought everyone to this place How did Claire s parents manage to hide what they d done How did no one in these fae colonies figure this out view spoiler Wouldn t it be news if a faerie baby was stolen hide spoiler The story was great, but some of the details and wrap up were missing

    Original post Given a copy for a honest review Ashton is a fae Faes channel feed off human and they can persuade humans But when Claire arrives at the institute Ashton knows there s something wrong She s different She can give off heaps off energy and she can control the channeling It s as if she knows The big mystery of Claire gives the readers an adrenaline and keeps them on the edge of their seat I couldn t put it down I haven t had good o Original post Given a copy for a honest review Ashton is a fae Faes channel feed off human and they can persuade humans But when Claire arrives at the institute Ashton knows there s something wrong She s different She can give off heaps off energy and she can control the channeling It s as if she knows The big mystery of Claire gives the readers an adrenaline and keeps them on the edge of their seat I couldn t put it down I haven t had good old thrill, like this, since ages Claire, our main character, is adopted by two faes and they both channel off her When she arrives at the institute she s quiet as a mouse but when we go through the book we see her character developing into a stronger one We find out how Claire is used and how she goes around been channelled by many faes It s filthy and wrong shiver Along with Claire s character developing, we also see the relationship between Ashton and Claire developing Ashton is not like other Faes He doesn t like what he is When Ashton meets Claire for the first time he knows that she s different from other humans She doesn t swoon after him or follow him around like a lost puppy Then, we see that Ashton is growing special feelings for her The thing that ticked off was that when Aston and Claire had a romantic moment Claire would always run away and it was not explained Despite this, Ashton and Claire were cute together Although, Fae Not was addicting and had great character and relationship development there was also a flaw The ending was just like there There was all this thrill and action, then bam It s the end I thought this hadn t ended yet, but after flicking through a few pages i finally got that it had finished I was devastated, a little exaggeration but yes i was devastated Nevertheless, i still enjoyed Fae Not and would recommend it, especially, to paranormal readers

    This is an intriguing novel, but I must add that right away the elitist Fae infuriated me Like vampires in so many paranormal novels, the Fae here perceive humans as fodder energy supplements the Fae want and need At Rykers Farm the counselors ostensibly interact with troubled teens, bringing therapeutic insight through manual farm labour Yeah, right the adolescents are sent to the Farm because they ve failed to produce sufficient energy reserves for their local fae In Claire s case, she This is an intriguing novel, but I must add that right away the elitist Fae infuriated me Like vampires in so many paranormal novels, the Fae here perceive humans as fodder energy supplements the Fae want and need At Rykers Farm the counselors ostensibly interact with troubled teens, bringing therapeutic insight through manual farm labour Yeah, right the adolescents are sent to the Farm because they ve failed to produce sufficient energy reserves for their local fae In Claire s case, she is a human, adopted early by Fae parents, and as soon as her energy input ceases, it s off to the farm, to be treated by Ashton Claire s problem seems to be deeper than that, though she is pathologically shy and reserved yet when confronted with Nature, her energy is over the top.I m afraid that the further I read into this novel, the angrier I became with the Fae attitude Humans, even though some are sub human, are not animals and I resented the belief that animals means valueless except for whatever use they might be to the Fae resenting this on behalf of both human energy givers and animals, I am.On the good side, there s a lot of intrigue, romance, tension, conflict, interspecies relations Fae and human , and all sorts of elements that readers of paranormal look for in stories of Fae Readers who enjoy paranormal romance and urban fantasy will delight in Fae Not

    Fae Not was a unique and intriquing read about a new version of fae The only thing that changed this from a 5 star to 4 star was that I wantedbackground in the beginning I understand the building mystery to the society and supernatural beings, but I wanted the farmclearly explained Sometimes it felt a little thrown into the middle of a story Because of this, the farm was sort of vaccuum that I wasn t real sure of the time period of the story It wasn t until the trip to Wal Mart Fae Not was a unique and intriquing read about a new version of fae The only thing that changed this from a 5 star to 4 star was that I wantedbackground in the beginning I understand the building mystery to the society and supernatural beings, but I wanted the farmclearly explained Sometimes it felt a little thrown into the middle of a story Because of this, the farm was sort of vaccuum that I wasn t real sure of the time period of the story It wasn t until the trip to Wal Mart and mentions of the Garmin GPS that I was sure it was present day However, that being said, I did immediately get drawn into the mystery of Ashton and the depressed Claire The new twist on the Fae keep me reading as I wanted to know all the details of how the society worked While the beginning bothered me with a lack of background details, the story really picks up halfway through and kept me reading until I finished it As Claire s true story emerges and her relationship with Ashton deepens, I really feel fans of the fae will be enthralled I loved the last half of the book and couldn t put it down but wanteddetails of what happened The ending felt a little abrupt but did give me my happy ever after
