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.

It was entertaining

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This book, while not being the most original or complex one out there, was entertaining. The narration is well done, and held my interest throughout. Like I said, the story is not very complex, and you have to suspend your disbelief some, but it's not a bad book. All in all, I was entertained, so that's good enough for me.

Not for me

I'm giving this book three stars because it was a mistake for me to buy it. I thought the characters and plot would be more mature.

Pick a word that means TERRIBLE, but isn't so mean

This book should be in the kids genre. Like the 10 - 13 age range. Maybe that would help make sense of what I just listened to.

Within the first 10 minutes of the book, the lead character meets a stranger in an abandoned building and decides to go with him into the woods. ALONE. AT NIGHT. TO ANOTHER WORLD.... this should have set the alarm off for me then but I give everything a chance.

There was no build up, story building, no world building. Things just happened.

Girl meets fae, girl immediately goes to meet Faire queen, girl gets sent on a mission.

That's exactly how it happened. You don't get any development. I wouldn't recommend this at all nor will I continue the series.

Great story

Love the narrators voice. Soothing.
But I don't like the way she does the main characters voice. She makes Shade sound like a complete nerd. Idk why she does that with all the English accents. Her Irish and other accents are wonderful.

I am loving this series!!!!

I love the fae & this series has been full of excitement & wonder so far. I can't wait to get my hands on the other books to see what else is to come!
BTW I really enjoyed this narrator too! She did a fabulous job adding spunk & spite to these characters exactly when needed! I look forward to listening to her again soon.

"Ever Shade: A Dark Faerie Tale, Book 1"
I loved how the Alexia Purdy writes you into a vision with her incredible writing skills. As you listen you can feel every emotion the characters feel, picture every detail of the setting, like you are right there. This is not your everyday Fae story
Henrietta Meire’s voice was good and
her story telling skills are simple amazing.
I listened to the audio ARC in one setting and enjoyed every minute.
I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review.
