Forever Fae by L. P. Dover

According to the Prophecy proclaimed many years ago, Princess Calista of the Summer Court is destined to change the Land of the Fae from the evil determined to destroy it. Her powers are phenomenal, and she secretly trains for battle with her handsome warrior friend, Merrick, who unbeknownst to her protects her heart as well, in hopes of keeping it for himself. At least, until Prince Ryder attends the Guardian Ceremony and instantly sends a fire burning through her veins and a connection so deep they both discover a love above anything imaginable.

No one knows how Calista is destined to change the kingdoms, but there is one that does. He not only craves Calista’s power, but her body as well, and his goal is to steal her power, make her his Dark Queen, and take over the Land of the Fae.

Will the evil succeed in claiming Calista’s soul? Or will the two men that fight for her heart save her from despair, and help her fulfill her destiny to become what she was meant to be.

Faeries!!!

Forever Fae was a slightly less than average book. Let’s start with the plot.

I think the plot actually had an interesting premise. It was a pretty good idea, but looking at the blurb, I would have expected some actual darkness in world, or at the very least, some verbal tennis with Prince Ryder. I did not expect to get blasted with insta twoo wuv (which I find sickening), or the villain to be a pathetic, creepy slimy old guy. There was barely any climax, and everything was over so quickly.

The characters were total flops. They had very little depth to them, and seemed to blow up with emotional at the slightest incident. There was waaay too much twoo wuv going around. Please. Get over yourselves. Too sentimental for me.

I think that the main saving grace of this book was that the quality of writing (by which I mean the language and sentence structure) was not really that bad. It made the thing seem like a better boom and story than it actually was. I’d give the first book two and a half stars.

Here’s the thing – I only read the first book. For all I know, the series could actually get way better. That said, I don’t plan on finding out because my reading list has some good-looking books that I’m moving on with.
