Bones of Faerie book. The war between humanity and Faerie devastated both sides  .

Magic was never meant for our world, Father said, and of course I'd agreed, though the War had ended and the faerie folk returned to. .But the memory of my sister's bones, cracked and bloody in the moonlight, haunts me still.

Magic was never meant for our world, Father said, and of course I'd agreed, though the War had ended and the faerie folk returned to their own places before I was born. If only they'd never stirred from those places-but it was no use thinking that way. Besides, I'd heard often enough that our town did better than most. Chapter 2. Three weeks after my sister's birth I hurried through town, my breath puffing into the chilly air and an empty bucket banging against my hip. The sun was just above the horizon, turning layers of pink cloud to gold.

Simner Janni Le. She was a beautiful baby, eyes silver as moonlight off the river at night. From the hour of her birth she was long-limbed and graceful, faerie-pale hair clear as glass from Before, so pale you could almost see through to the soft skin beneath. For Larry: 3333, 4556, 5645.

Bones of Faerie is her first young adult novel. To learn more about Janni, visit her Web site at ww. imner. Bones of Faerie is a hauntingly, beautifully written book that combines dystopian and fantasy genres in a gripping, spooky, good vs. evil story. The war between humans and faeries is over, but the world has changed dramatically and negatively.

This makes Bones of Faerie completely different from other faerie stories on the market today. Bones of Faerie is nothing if not unique. I have never seen dystopian and fantasy blended together in such a beautiful manner. Even though I liked the characters in Bones of Faerie (particularly Allie), I am not strongly attached to them yet. I wouldn't describe Liza as a kick-ass heroine, even though she is brave. While the characters are good, it is the plot that makes the story stand out.

The war between humanity and Faerie devastated both sides. Or so 15-year-old Liza has been told.

I have heard wonderful things about Bones of Faerie, so I decided to pick it up. I didn't realize, however, that it takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. This makes Bones of Faerie completely different from other faerie stories on the market today. Even though I was a bit disappointed that I wasn't transported into a beautiful, magical realm, the story itself was still good and I think we will get to see more of Faerie in future novels.

Even though I liked the characters in Bones of Faerie (particularly Allie), I am not strongly attached to them yet. I wouldn't describe Liza as a kick-ass heroine, even though she is brave. There is just something missing, which would take her from likable to lovable. Since there is quite a bit of history between some of the older characters, I expect that the more time I spend with everyone, the more I will love them. Bones of Faerie is a pretty short read, so it is hard to get to know the characters as well as I'd might like to.

My favorite part of the novel was defiantly the plot! I like dystopians and I love faerie stories. I am typically hesitant with post-apocalyptic novels, but a post-apocalyptic world wrapped in magic worked really well for me. Part of the draw is that different areas of the world live very differently when it comes to magic. Seeing the rest of the world with Liza was great for the reader because it was new to both of us. I like learning with my characters, rather than having to figure out things they already know since authors sometimes do not explain these things.

Bones of Faerie is nothing if not unique. I have never seen dystopian and fantasy blended together in such a beautiful manner. While the characters are good, it is the plot that makes the story stand out. I am still hoping to see a really cool faerie world and hope that this will happen in future novels.

Bones of Faerie is a hauntingly, beautifully written book that combines dystopian and fantasy genres in a gripping, spooky, good vs. evil story. The war between humans and faeries is over, but the world has changed dramatically and negatively. Technology is gone. Trees and flowers can have deadly powers. Sinister shadows lurk, ready to strike. Fear and distrust of magic and faeries remain as legacies of the deadly battles. Any human suspected of having even slight faerie qualities, like clear hair color, can be banned or executed. When Liza starts having visions of the future, she flees before anyone finds out, or worse, her magic brings disaster to her town. Liza's journey changes her. She learns that history is tainted by being only one perspective, there are several sides to every accounting of events. Matt, her companion on her journey, shows her that her abilities are not inherently evil. It is how she chooses to use them. She also learns that she is not alone, there are many like her. Liza decides to enter the faerie world. Although the story drags in parts, and the ending is predictable, there is enough action, and there are enough interesting characters, to hold the interest of reluctant readers. Fantasy lovers and dystopian lovers will eagerly move on to the sequels.

This book was short but packed a definite punch. It had amazingly well developed characters and an excellent plot to drive the story. It also left me wanting more which is why I was thrilled to hear that the book was actually part of a series. I cannot wait to read more from this world.

Let me just say upfront: I'm a huge fan of faeries...the fey are probably my favorite supernatural-type. But that does not skew my opinion of this novel because I've read a whole slew of doozies when it comes to books about fey. This book, however, is not a doozy :) I'd read mixed reviews of this book and I was a bit hesitant to buy it. But I did and I loved it! It's not the perfect fey book, but it's definitely up there. The writing is superb, to begin with. The premise is unique and sets up a starkly beautiful tale of survival, betrayal, and love in a post-apocalyptic setting. It's also a coming of age story as Liza, our protagonist, is discovering things about herself and her life while grappling with what it means to truly trust someone. Liza is a survivor and feels alone, but along the way, learns that to truly live, you must let those who love you in.

This book successfully weaves together a post-apocalyptic story with a tale of the fae. We don't see the war between faeries and humans; the story starts in the years following it. I like that we see how different groups of people deal with surviving, and with the emergence of magic in the children (although, of course, I don't like "how" some of them survive/deal).

I found the characters to be very real - normal people dealing with extreme circumstances. So many books would have followed the cliched love story, but I'm very glad this one didn't.

There are many very sad moments in the book, but this is following an great catastrophe, so that is to be expected. I did find a lot of hope in the book, however, that outweighed the sadness.

There is definitely room for more from these characters, and I look forward to reading the next book.

Bones of Faerie starts off really creepy. Then it gets REALLY creepy!
I am a big fan of Fairy Tales, Folk Tales, and Mythology. So, I wasn't sure about delving into this dark vision of our world infected by my sweet little 'darlings'. Not being a devout horror fan, I was skeptical. But Cripes! I couldn't stop reading this book. Simner grabbed me with one of those tendrils of hers and sucked me into her world. Enough said . . . I'm getting all creeped out again.

Recommended by a 7th grade student, I was not disappointed.
In fact the combination of a post-apocalyptic world and a traditional dark and dangerous depiction of faerie, makes it an excellent read.
