Customer Reviews


This is the second book in the Alex the Fey series and I have to say that this series is very addicting! The characters and storyline draw you in and keep you wanting more. I am very glad to have found this author and I can't wait to read the next book.

Learning to Stand

I'm hooked! You will be too! Alex is what every woman is whether they show it on the outside or keep it inside for only a special few to see. Smart, funny, strong, intuitive, and loving (if you deserve it!). I started with "The Fey", thinking I had stumbled over a new Arthurian novel. Boy did I get a good surprise! Read them all and when you're done read about Alex's friends who so lovingly keep her sheltered and warm in the Denver Cereal. After all... What's a bomb or two between friend? Intrigued? Good, start reading!

Not good at all-non believable plot and characters

Based on the 5 stars I bought this book. It is filled with non-believability on the part of the characters, a whining protagonist, a group of soldiers who disobey direct orders, characters who undergo major surgery have full conversations before anesthesia wears off, and 2 days later run 10 miles up hill on a rescue mission. With heavy editing and research this first draft of a story could have been so much more.
