Review: The Faerie Path (Faerie Path, #1) by Allan Frewin Jones

Swept away into a court of magic and beauty, she discovers she is Tania, the lost princess of Faerie: the youngest daughter of Oberon and Titania. Since Tania's mysterious disappearance on the eve of her wedding five hundred years before, Faerie has been sunk in darkness and gloom. The courtly Lord Gabriel Drake, who Tania was once to marry, has found her and brought her back.
With Tania's return, Faerie comes alive again as a land of winged children, glittering balls, and fantastic delights. But Tania can't forget Anita's world, or the boy she loved there.
Torn between two loves and between two worlds, Tania slowly comes to discover why she disappeared so long ago. She possesses a singular magical ability and she must use it to stop a sinister plan that threatens the entire world of Faerie.

Yet another title that I left sitting on my bookshelf for way too long.  I've corrected my mistake in waiting such a long time neglecting this title, and can say that I found yet another fey series that I'm interested in seeing how it will all pan out.  With six books in the series I've got my work cut out for me if I want to see where the rest of the series goes, but after such a wonderful series opener, I don't think I'll find the task very daunting.

I will start out by admitting that I may have found myself wondering what range in ages the author was going for as far as his target audience was concerned...and being an older in age fan of young adult titles I don't think I would fit into that target.  But regardless, while there were a few parts that I found a little tedious, for the most part, the premise and characters won be over from the very beginning.   Despite having several theories of how Jones would wrap up his first series installment I will admit defeat.  I had guessed right on a few of my ideas, but other matters Jones threw me for a loop without a doubt.

If you're a fan of titles surrounding the fey and all things fantasy, this was a fun read that I think most readers will come to enjoy as much as I did.  I've got five other titles to work my way through and I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to do just that.

I gave The Faerie Path (Faerie Path, #1) 3 shamrocks!!!
