The Fae Wars Book 1: Grace Notes by Marik Berghs

Goodreads Summary

When seventeen-year-old Lunabel O'Hara hums, she can shatter glass.  She uses her voice to vibrate latches off their hooks or secretly melt the fillings in the mouth of the town bully.  For the most part, Lunabel keeps her sonic abilities undercover.  In her small hometown at the edge of the wilderness, being too different is never a good thing—then she finds a faery slipper.

Jeremy Fields, a classmate, knows all about the tiny shoe.  Jeremy is determined to break through Lunabel's defenses and overcome the prejudice of his own people to find his missing sister, the owner of the slipper.

Living in self-imposed isolation has left Lunabel lonely and alone.  But when Jelly Jones, a legendary high school athlete, befriends Lunabel, things start to happen.  Jelly makes movement look like dancing and her mind is as sharp as a crack of lightening.

Something's going on in Thornhill Forest.  If the three band together, combining their talent and courage they could share the secrets of the last wild place, where the Fae are hidden and anything can happen.  Trust could cost them everything or save them and everything they love...

My Thoughts

I have never read any books about Faeries (Except Tinkerbell Books when I was little) so I wasn't sure what to expect.  When the author contacted me and asked if I would like to read and review this I agreed and, after finishing a few books that I had in line already, I jumped right in.  I am actually still trying to figure out exactly how I feel about this book.

Grace Notes is definitely a book unlike any I have read before.  It is a story full of imagination and colorful characters.  There were times when I was so completely drawn in and I didn't want to put it down and then there were a few times when I was a bit confused.  Now, the confusion could possibly be due to the fact that I am a Faery book newbie and I wasn't completely sure what some of the terminology meant.

With that being said, it was a good book.  It ended quite abruptly, which confused me a bit there as well, but I'm guessing that things will be clarified and the story will continue in the next book.  The ending did make me want to read the next book so that I can see what happens next.

Thank you, Marik Berghs, for sending this book to me and allowing me to read and review it!

*Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
