Publisher's Summary

Ever Shade - A dark twist on faeries.

For Shade, a chance meeting with a powerful Teleen faery warrior who wields electrical currents and blue fires along his skin, has her joining him on a treacherous mission for the good Seelie Faerie Court across the land of Faerie. Magic and malice abound and nothing is what it really seems to be. The evil Unseelie Queen and her treacherous allies are around every corner as Shade makes her way across the breathtaking landscapes of the world of Faerie, which exists alongside the mundane human world. Shade discovers her own uncharted magic and meets some of the most powerful warriors in Faerie while battling evil dryads, conniving Teleen guards and challenges on her life with every step in a world where nothing can be taken for granted.

    "Ever Shade: A Dark Faerie Tale, Book 1"
    What did you love best about Ever Shade?

    I loved how the Author paints you a vision with her incredible writing skills. You can feel every emotion, picture every detail like you are right there. The Characters well, they are simple spectacular and original. This is not your everyday Fae story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ever Shade?

    When Shade travels through the lands and has a run in with a unlikely enemy.


    What about Henrietta Meire’s performance did you like?

    her story telling skills are simple amazing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    "Poor story line"

    Weak story that just didn't keep my interest. I won't be reading the rest. Poor story line in my opinion.

    "Good first story, mediocre narrator."

    I enjoyed the book and will listen to the next one only because they changed narrators. This one needs some coaching.

    Story
    "Liked It"

    The heroine started out as a fairly typical teenage girl-easily overwhelmed and easily irritated. I had to keep reminding myself that she was a teenager, because otherwise, her whininess would get extraordinarily annoying. I liked the story quite a bit, but I don't know if I would consider it to be dark. Grimms fairytale are often just as dark. The narrator did an OK job, though I think she could be excellent if narrating a different book... Perhaps one with European characters. It's impossible to buy that she was born in the United States.

    Overall, it was a decent, interesting story with ok narration (or excellent narration if the story took place elsewhere!).

    I received a free copy of this audio book from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Cliffhanger, but good!"

    The author left the fate of many seemingly important characters hanging, but hopefully book 2 will shed some light on the deeper story. The plot was well set, with excellent detail. It was easy to be pulled into this world with imagination. I look forward to the continuation.

    "Holly Black this IS NOT!"
    Would you try another book from Alexia Purdy and/or Henrietta Meire?

    Maybe... Especially if it's on sale. Wouldn't waste a credit though.


    What was most disappointing about Alexia Purdy’s story?

    I was hoping for something closer to Holly Black. I love everything I've of hers; Spiderwick I've not read.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration is fairly good; if not for narrator, I wouldn't have lasted as long as I did.


    Any additional comments?

    I guess I'll try and give this another try...perhaps. At least I'm not disappointed that the rest of the series is not available on Audible. I initially purchased BECAUSE it is 1st in a series & only later found it is not available. No great loss, apparently...
