Phil Hastings was a lucky man he had money a growing reputation as a screenwriter a happy loving family with three kids and he'd just moved into the house of his dreams i. The first uarter of the book was slow and a little clunky I felt it very contrived and awkward almost like the author wasn t uite sure how to get all his characters in one place or how to introduce them once he brought them to the same location That said the remaining 34 of the book is excellent Feist doesn t exactly put a new spin on faeries but his descriptions of them are marvelously complex Faeries are not merely human with pointy ears and gem colored eyes they are hyper sexual capricious creatures that have few features of humanity about them at all Even the good faeries have a streak of weirdness and cruel humor The plot moves along fairly well after the initial slowness and there are some interesting twists and developments with secret societies and ancient history Worth a read if you are interested in the modern faerie type stories

Faerie Tale

Ng and the Faerie and then the Fool and the resurrection of a primordial war with a forgotten People a war that not only the Hastings but the whole human race could lose.. This is one of my favorite stories of all time and if I could would be the one book I would convert into a movie It would definitely need modernisingThe story gets a little dark in places but is otherwise a tottaly captivating read that blends real life and faerie myth perfectlyMy female friend who doesn t read very often couldn t put this down but couldn t read it by herself at night

N rural upstate New York Life was wonderful full of magic and about to be altered irrevocably by a Magic real than any he dared imagineFor with the Magic came the Bad Thi. Raymond E Feist b 1945 is one of the leading fantasy writers in the contemporary US literary scene best known for his massive Riftwar Saga series Barb and I read the latter in the early 90s and liked it although I ve never reviewed it here and we never followed it up with any of the succeeding series I was inclined to think there was a limit to how many magical existential threats one kingdom in a fantasy world could realistically be expected to encounter in succession and suspected that the severe case of seuelitis was mostly an attempt to milk the settingcharacters for cash That said I did think the first series was involving and well written with lifelike characters who are engaging and a plot that s often emotionally compelling it also didn t feel so dependent on Tolkien as Terry Brooks Shannara series openerHowever my first introduction to Feist s work was this stand alone novel read as a public library check out a few years earlier not long after it was published I still consider it the best of his books that I ve read and it made a strong enough impression on my memory that I feel comfortable reviewing it after than 30 years without having a copy in front of me Though it will necessarily be a shorter and less detailed review than some of mine areIn the author s present a well to do family very successful Hollywood scriptwriter his second wife roughly 20 year old daughter from his first marriage and a pair of boys on the cusp of their teens move into a long empty old country house Erl King Hill in the wilds of upstate New York It doesn t take long like about the first page for the reader to be made aware that this house and its environs are a habitat for the Fae and a place where their reality intersects with ours and it turns out that there s even much much and deeper significance to the connection than that Feist will disclose all of his mysteries only in his own good time and meanwhile all of the Hastings family members are in for a puzzling stressful and ultimately scary and potentially lethal adventureInteraction of the supernatural with the mundane world is a motif I really like in fiction and it s here in spades A few scenes here take place in Faerie so I ve classified this as fantasy but the bulk of the tale plays out in this world I ve recommended it for fans of supernatural fiction as well Much actual traditional lore about the Fae from European cultures mostly Celtic and Germanic is worked in here very nicely such as the Wild Hunt Wieland the smith the Seelie and the Unseelie Courts we even have a cameo appearance of Thomas the Rhymer All of the Hastings family members are likable characters that you root for and wish well and they all play significant roles in the story including the boys who get to show their mettle The other characters are also vital and realistic Feist does a great job with his plotting and he provides some romance to add pleasant flavor to the stew it has an insta love uality but despite that uibble and despite some implied premarital sex it comes across as genuine love This isn t a kid s book despite the two younger characters but there s no explicit sex and bad language is restrained there are two f words but in perspective it s a 420 page book It s not a deep read that grapples much with profound spiritual or philosophical uestions but for me it was a really enjoyable page turning read If Goodreads used half stars in its rating system I d actually have given the book 4 and 12

    I decided that it was time to re read this one Even though I've read this twice already Feist is scaring the crap out of me to the point that I have to set it aside sometimes I will be with it for a few days I'm sure even though I'm putting today's date on the review I can do this because I know my rating won't c

    I am shelving this with my other facetious to not read ever reviews even though I have nothing against the book My parents owned a copy of it when I was very young and I was always fascinated and creeped out by the evocative cover with the lost shoe and the smear of blood I spotted a used copy at a library sale a few weeks ago and debated buying it but I have too many books to read already I contented myself w

    Impossible to read After a simplistic yet somehow intriguing prologue a guy sees something then he grabs a bottle and drinks there is a first chapter where we find all about a mother her husband two boys a girl a house a porch a certain brand of dog food a dog and the dog has a name a cat and the cat has a name too and and there I stoppedI always found domestic scenes to be uite disturbing but this was just over the top And I am

    Ok first let me go ahead and say that this is a true GoodReads 2 star rating that is it was ok and nothing else because it is really ok if you are into fantasy and in particular faeries and the whole Celtic mythology I would certainly recommend it It's well written and well thought outMy own problems however were threefold; first I really don't like fantasy and it's my firm belief that this will be my last book to fit

    To give this book ANY stars would be giving it too many The concept is good but the pacing is terrible a slow ponderous plot there's a surplus of characters none of them terribly engaging or real and it takes seemingly for

    Just laughably awful My husband and I still both joke about this one The author is so obviously infatuated with his main female character it makes you feel dirty reading it He has written way better stuff I recommend you avoid this one
