    An easy and enticing read, FAIRYTALE APOCALYPSE resolves most of the story, but leaves enough unanswered to set up future books in the series IndieReader

    5 5 starsThis tale is a great mix of fantasy and survival in a post apocalyptic world The Verge is a magic land that the mortals know nothing about It reminds me of London Below in Neil Gaiman s Neverwhere Lord Kagan has been searching for a way to heal his beloved Verge and restore the magic that exists there to full strength He is running out of options, so when a young mortal girl appears in the Verge claiming to be sent by the goddess, he sits up and pays attention Lauren is spoilt 5 5 starsThis tale is a great mix of fantasy and survival in a post apocalyptic world The Verge is a magic land that the mortals know nothing about It reminds me of London Below in Neil Gaiman s Neverwhere Lord Kagan has been searching for a way to heal his beloved Verge and restore the magic that exists there to full strength He is running out of options, so when a young mortal girl appears in the Verge claiming to be sent by the goddess, he sits up and pays attention Lauren is spoilt She leaves her home in the mortal world to fulfill her destiny as Lady of the Verge She s not really interested in helping anyone but herself and isattracted to the material possessions that come along with the position, than actually helping the Verge heal Her twin sister, Tessa, has different ideas When Lauren runs off on their sixteenth birthday, Tessa goes off to find her She accidentally stumbles into the Fae world and must not only survive, but find her sister and return to the mortal world With the aid of Dymphna, a sylph, she navigates dangerous forests and treacherous rivers Unfortunately she also runs across the Old One, and with Dymphna s help, manages to escape being a meal for a mean old witch in a gingerbread house When Tessa finally arrives at Kagan s doorstep, she soon realizes that her sister is about to be betrothed to a Fae, and tries to stop it This leads to a rending of the two worlds, causing catastrophic damage to both and propelling Tessa and her sister back into the mortal realm Kagan must go to the mortal realm to try and fix the damage to both worlds Along the way, Kagan discovers the goddess has a much different destiny for him and the sisters than he originally thought.What I loved The two sisters are real and they fight like real sisters do One is a selfish brat and the other is bossy and thinks she knows best It is refreshing to see a sister relationship that isn t all flowers and sunshine The world building is fantastic Great description of the magic that keeps the two worlds in balance You really get a sense of how the Fae realm differs from the mortal world There is danger lurking around every corner and the Verge is a hostile place for those who do not belong there.Although I didn t like Lauren, I have to admit she is well drawn as spoiled princess wannabe The only person Lauren cares about is Lauren Her cruelty to Camden, who really loved her, leads to disastrous consequences She reminds me of this guy Of course, to Lauren, home is to become Lady of the Verge One of my favorite characters is Rinn, Kagan s sentient saber He communicates telepathically with Kagan and Kagan considers him a valued friend and adviser When Kagan believes his friend is lost, his grief is strong and real.What I would like to seeof I like how the tale of Hansel and Gretel was incorporated into the Verge world and would like to seefairytale elements I also want to see what happens to Damin, who is overtaken by a daemon, Dymphna, the sylph, and Orgo, the Kagan household garden bird They are obviously in the story for a reason and I d like to know what happens to them.Ms Patrick s writing is, as always, a joy to read The flow and description take you away from real world monotony, and submerge you in a magical fiction land I look forward to future books in the Verge series

    This book had a great pace, keeping you on your toes the entire time I have to admit I struggled with one of the main characters, Lauren, but that now in hindsight was the right choice on how she portrayed the character I absolutely adore the other main characters and was sad when some ended in this book She depicts the inner struggles very nicely and found a great way to resolve things As I got closer to the end I was wondering how she would resolve the entire thing and absolutely loved how This book had a great pace, keeping you on your toes the entire time I have to admit I struggled with one of the main characters, Lauren, but that now in hindsight was the right choice on how she portrayed the character I absolutely adore the other main characters and was sad when some ended in this book She depicts the inner struggles very nicely and found a great way to resolve things As I got closer to the end I was wondering how she would resolve the entire thing and absolutely loved how she did it.This was a new take on the fae world interacting with the human world and on how they do depend on each other A definite must read and I will keep an eye out for the next one in this series.I have receive this book from the author for an honest review LoP, lovers of paranormal

    I didn t just read Fairytale Apocalypse I was there with the main characters living their difficulties, pain, injuries and loss Every twist and turn in the story was a surprise, no formula storyline here I was privileged to read this before the final polish and publishing but as soon as I can I will read it again to relive the excitement I felt the first time.

    Received this book from Netgalley for review.It was relatively interesting The plot was pretty regular basics in an interesting new shell It started off wonderful, really For perhaps the first third of the book, I was very much into it and looking forward to the rest Then things started to happen and I basically went though the book not really believing too much in anything The whole event which causes the apocalypse seemed so unnecessary and by seemed, I mean it was pretty unnecessary I u Received this book from Netgalley for review.It was relatively interesting The plot was pretty regular basics in an interesting new shell It started off wonderful, really For perhaps the first third of the book, I was very much into it and looking forward to the rest Then things started to happen and I basically went though the book not really believing too much in anything The whole event which causes the apocalypse seemed so unnecessary and by seemed, I mean it was pretty unnecessary I understand that emotions were running high, but why in the world could they not just work it out like normal beings It just doesn t make any sense to me Also, the original dying of the verge doesn t really seem to fit in and it s not excused even if that s in the next book The cliffhanger also was kind of unnecessary It made meupset than intrigued for another volume.The characters were a bit confusing at times and a bit much at others I liked the secondary characters a lotthan the main ones The main characters seemed a little bit ridiculous and not in a nice fairytale way either I ended up liking Lauren the most, even though I feel that everything in the book was trying to make me dislike her She s exactly the kind of person that seems created to annoy you with her being so spoiled and jealous of her sister at every single point I was upset that she didn t grow The ending seemed to imply that she did, but I saw literally none of it, up until the last, which was disappointing The other two characters, Kagan and Tessa were both possibly my least favourite characters, who weren t evil Rovers, but I suppose they grew the most, though it was a very strange and sudden growth You could see that there was an attempt at making it gradual but it seemed so forced it was a bit painful view spoiler Not to mention the very strange part where he basically tries to rape her but she s really into it and falls completely in love hide spoiler Perhaps the most frustrating part for me, is that the one brown, queer character betrays everyone and then dies Unfortunately, there are not enough of those characters in the world of science fiction to make me feel comfortable with something like that I was really excited to see the introduction of that character and then that happened It just leaves a bad taste in the mouth If you can suspend belief, it s not bad I was interested at some points, but then with others things either made no sense or felt very off It was a pretty quick read, though I didn t have to time to do all of it in one sitting myself If it s one thing I can say, it s that a lot happens Often one of my problems in books is that nothing happens It just seems like build up for literally the entire book with no satisfying outcome This is not that because so much happens So much It s not as fairytale as the name sets it up to be, but it is very apocalyptic I m not sure I would recommend it, but if you have time on your hands and you really love dystopian fiction, it might be good Warning though, there is a kind of love triangle and if love triangles aren t you thing, then you might wanna stay away

    I received a copy of Fairytale Apocalypse after having won the book in a First Reads giveaway.I was rather intrigued by Fairytale Apocalypse after having read the short summary I m generally not one of those who tend to be drawn towards apocalyptic books, but this book offered a fascinating mix of romance, fantasy and adventure At times it was a bit slow, but then it suddenly exploded into an epic journeyI won t go much into detail in regards to the plot as many have done so before and whyI received a copy of Fairytale Apocalypse after having won the book in a First Reads giveaway.I was rather intrigued by Fairytale Apocalypse after having read the short summary I m generally not one of those who tend to be drawn towards apocalyptic books, but this book offered a fascinating mix of romance, fantasy and adventure At times it was a bit slow, but then it suddenly exploded into an epic journeyI won t go much into detail in regards to the plot as many have done so before and why not discover the plot on your own while reading the book I will however say a few words on the main characters in the book Lord Kagan Donmall, oh you rascal with your fancy leather pants I wasn t sure what to think of you during the first few chapters Why wouldn t you listen to me ehhh did I really talk to a book character and expect him to answer me Things would have been so much easier if you only had listened to Orgo But then again we wouldn t have this epic adventure if you did Once Kagan interacted with Lauren and Tessa and we got an insight to his reasoning and thoughts he really grew on me A frustrated and torn Kagan was at times quite hilarious Lauren What can I say about her One word sums her up and that is spoiled Lauren is destined to by Lady of the Verge and at first behaves as if she s an incredibly annoying 10 year old and wants a new Barbie Through out the book she keeps being very difficult and demanding Not my most favourite character, but all 3 main characters have a fascinating chemistry together Even Lauren gets my sympathyeven if there were times when I wanted to shake some sense into her and tell her to take thingsseriously.Tessa This girl is tough, beautiful and rather intelligent I really enjoyed her storyline Tessa is constantly trying to brings some sense into Lauren and both get into heated arguments over Lauren s destiny and whether Kagan is a good guy or not.Speaking of Kagan, Tessa and Kagan has some of the most intense dialogues and interactions in the entire book I specifically enjoyed the intense and absolutely magnificent battle scenes they had with the Rovers My heart raced and my breathing increased as if I was there with them Jacqueline Patricks, you sure did a marvellous job with this book Little did I know how fast I would be thrown into an emotional roller coaster while reading Fairytale Apocalypse I love how it not only intertwined the relationship between each character but also towards creatures Orgo and items Rinn I was constantly at edge, smiling, mumbling random things to the characters as if they could hear me and I just couldn t stop reading At one point I even stayed up until 3 a.m just to read another chapter orIT WAS ALL WORTH IT

    Full disclosure I requested and received a free ebook through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I have a confession to make about this book When I requested it on NetGalley I expected it to be a shameless romance involving little or no thought I was looking for guilty pleasure reading that day So imagine my surprise when not only does Fairytale Apocalypse turn out to be serious, it turns out to be good What really surprised me were the characters Yes, there s the typical older pr Full disclosure I requested and received a free ebook through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I have a confession to make about this book When I requested it on NetGalley I expected it to be a shameless romance involving little or no thought I was looking for guilty pleasure reading that day So imagine my surprise when not only does Fairytale Apocalypse turn out to be serious, it turns out to be good What really surprised me were the characters Yes, there s the typical older protective sister dynamic with Tessa she is the older twin but there also is a lot of resentment about her role as the protector Since Tessa and Lauren are essentially the same age, their totally different personalities come into conflict constantly Tessa is grounded and very mature for her age whereas Lauren well she s definitely a dreamer, but she s also kind of flaky and naive Lauren is not necessarily the best match for Kagan, the Lord of the Verge, who is very serious, could never be described as naive and old by mortal standards.I was also pretty impressed when Jacqueline Patricks decided to modify the tropes she was using, rather than being lazy and playing them straight like so many authors I can t really reveal all that much without giving away the storyline, but just imagine a double apocalypse in the Fae world and mortal world where powerful people like the Fae can t use their magic any longer How would they cope Could they even survive in a mortal post apocalyptic world, let alone a Fae one It s actually very interesting because it makes the plot far less predictable.The world building was excellent, no doubt about that Yes, the Fae world is sort of a typical fairy world there s dangerous lurking around every corner and the pretty things are probably what will kill you But at the same time, Patricks put her own spin on it and included some fascinating new creatures as well as older creatures that are usually neglected in fantasy All of the fae have swords that communicate with them, something you would think would end up being ridiculous but really didn t It was actually quite a fascinating bond and I wish we had learnedabout it There s always next book, though.So here we have a fantasy with themes of love vs duty and sacrifice for the greater good We also have amazing characters, a really interesting and unpredictable plot as well as some pretty great world building I really can t ask for anything else, other than for Jacqueline Patricks to hurry up with the next book I give this book 5 5 stars
