To Wed the Fae Prince
Genre: Supernatural Adult/YA
Release Date: August 4th 2012
I’ve seen it around and Goodreads listed it as a YA book….ummm that’s not quite right.
Summary taken from Goodreads:
tta Cooper has been promised to marry the Prince of the Faeries since before she was born. A move from her mundane life and family take her into the enchanted Faeryland where she is promised to the handsome Bronn, eldest prince of the Fae King, but when Bronn decides he doesn't want her she is betrothed to his elegant, introspective, and... sullen younger brother Farron. Farron is a human hater. Trapped in this lush, beautiful world of faery Etta longs to escape until she begins to spend time with Farron, and their conversations slowly chip away at the frosty, superior mask he wears. Perhaps, just perhaps Farron is exactly the challenge she's been looking for...
Recommended for ages 16 and up due to mature content.
Well colour me surprised when Goodreads has users listing this as a Young Adult novel. Cause I wouldn’t really define it as that. There is definitely some sexual content in here. A lot. But, there is some young love too, so, naturally I was hooked. So I did really like the characters and the story line. Basically for her parents to conceive they needed the help of the Fae and in return she would wed a fae prince. Pretty cool. I sort of had a feeling I was getting into something along the lines of the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. Then things got a little…heated. Anyhow I still really liked the characters and the story line. But, to say that this book wasn’t a little confusing would be a lie. In the fae world time passes differently for humans and so for Etta months go by when she thinks its only days. So when Farron goes from what seems to be hating Etta to being a nice guy it became pretty confusing. And, sadly things were not properly explained. Which made it even more confusing. Other than that I really enjoyed the book. I just felt like some of my questions went un-answered, especially the ones about the dramatic changes in some of the characters.
Etta—she seems nieve, but overall a pretty cool character.
Farron—definitely grows on you
Some confusion with the story lines.
Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):
Overall the novel was a bit confusing in the beginning and I felt like it could have been made into a longer novel to simply explain those circumstances. Overall though, I still rather enjoyed the novella and really did like the characters and their budding romance. I liked learning about the world of the fae, but felt that it just could have been made into a full length novel to really get a good feel for the novel.
“I could not fathom how I’d ever believed he was so gloomy…or a dipshit.”
