Title: Fairy Keeper
Author: Amy Bearce
Genre: Fantasy; Young Adult.
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Goodreads Synopsis: “Forget cute fairies in pretty dresses. In the world of Aluvia, most fairies are more like irritable, moody insects. Almost everyone in the world of Aluvia views the fairy keeper mark as a gift, but not fourteen-year-old Sierra. She hates being a fairy keeper, but the birthmark is right there on the back of her neck. It shows everyone she was born with the natural ability to communicate, attract, and even control the tiny fairies whose nectar is amazingly powerful. Fairy nectar can heal people, but it is also a key ingredient in synthesizing Flight, an illegal elixir that produces dreaminess, apathy and hallucinations. She’s forced to care for a whole hive of the bee-like beasties by her Flight-dealing, dark alchemist father.
Then one day, Sierra discovers the fairies of her hatch are mysteriously dead. The fairy queen is missing. Her father’s Flight operation is halted, and he plans to make up for the lost income by trading her little sister to be an elixir runner for another dark alchemist, a dangerous thug. Desperate to protect her sister, Sierra convinces her father she can retrieve the lost queen and get his operation up and running.
The problem? Sierra’s queen wasn’t the only queen to disappear. They’re all gone, every single one, and getting them back will be deadly dangerous.
Sierra journeys with her best friend and her worst enemy — assigned by her father to dog her every step — to find the missing queens. Along the way, they learn that more than just her sister’s life is at stake if they fail. There are secrets in the Skyclad Mountains where the last wild fairies were seen. The magic Sierra finds there has the power to transform their world, but only if she can first embrace her calling as a fairy keeper.“
MY RATING: 2.5 Starts
* The publisher of this book sent me this paperback copy in exchange for an honest review, so don’t expect less than that, I will always give my honest opinion, like it or not *
I still don’t know what I really feel about this book, I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it and I am not sure I enjoyed it that much… I am confused as hell !
I gave to this book 2.5 Stars on Goodreads for a simple reason, besides not “understanding” what I felt reading it I was bored sometimes while reading this book, I don’t know guys I just didn’t like it as much as I thought I would, I really was sure I was going to love this book because it looks super amazing BUT I didn’t, I love the cover I think it is really amazing and beautiful but there were a lot of things that didn’t make me happy.
To beggin with I didn’t like the characters in this book and the main character, OH LORD, the main character was so annoying… you’re not even seeing my point. I didn’t love any character in this book, I didn’t feel a connection with anyone, NOT EVEN ONE FREAKING CHARACTER !I didn’t understand the “actions” of the main character, I didn’t like a ton of things about the characters in general.
About the plot… the plot is probably the only reason why I gave this book a 0.5 point on top of the 2 stars, yas, my thing is I finished it so I gave it 2 stars because I finished it and besides being bored I kinda liked the description of the “scenario” and blablabla, and that’s it, I could easily give to this book 2 straight stars BUT I kinda understand the plot and I kinda got it and liked it so just for the plot 2.5 Stars.
I like the way the author writes I just don’t think she was able to “reach me” you know ? There was something missing, the writting is quite simple and light but I still feel there’s something missing here so I don’t know, I don’t think I would recommend this book to you this time guys, of course that you all should read the book because you should have your own opinion about it and all of that but I just didn’t enjoy it that much so I am not recommending it to you because it was not amazing and I will not say “YOU MUST READ IT” .
