It's said of Fairy that if you're in dire need and you call their name they'll come. With his castle under siege and young son in his arms, High King Oryan couldn't be in more dire need. With only his High Marshal, Morgan, and a handful of Morgan's men at his back, he has only one direction left to run...up. And only one ally to whom he can turn. Kyriay, the Queen of the F ...more

Dear god where do I begin. The story/plot/etc was good, very good actually. However, I don't know if it was due to it being a free book on the Kindle or what but there was no formatting of this book AT ALL, and loads of typos. I can handle a typo or 2, but why else do authors have editors and the people around them? To help them see the glaring mistakes that should not reach a reader. There were many times when there was a sentence completely repeated, or a word left out totally. I don't blame t ...more

It has been a long time since I last read something so tedious. It is repetitive and boring. Also, if I wanted to spend so much time on porn, I would watch it, not read it... Every 5 seconds there is a description of them having sex, we get it allready, he is having sex with a fairy, get on with the story. The story is so slow paced, nothing seems to be happening for 30% of the book, and then in one chapter there is a short battle, and then again with the nothing happening. I barely got to 50% o ...more

Omfg!!! I am so in love with this story! I'm so sad that I borrowed it instead of owning it because it was sooooo good! The story begins with King Oryan's castle being attacked by his younger brother Haerold. The queen dies defending the king and her son, and they escape with the help of the fairy queen. The king and his son separate in order to keep one of the two safe and the story shifts more to Morgan, King Oryan's most trusted guard. He and Kyri (queen of the fairy) begin to get feelings fo ...more

This is a pretty epic book. No, really, it’s long, covers a couple of years, lots of traveling, and has an epic feel to it. It reminds me more of one of those “guy” fantasy stories that has a couple of volumes. I hate to say it, but the first half of the book dragged. I felt like it could have been cut in half and moved a lot faster, and there was too much of a focus on politics and more minor characters. BUT – the second half of the book rocked. The action was fast paced, the love scenes were h ...more

I started the book yesterday while waiting for my daughter in the dentist office. She had a two two hour procedure and while reading the book it seemed to much less and I just couldn't stop reading this amazing story. Now that i have to go to work it will be forever before I continue with my reading. I am hoping to finish this Song of the Fairy Queen this weekend. I am loving it!!!!!

Ms. Douglas, you have just great writing and I love all characters. I really am enjoying your plot, your writing (

I read only the first 30 pages when I decided to stop. The storyline and characters were unique, interesting and engaging making it enticing at first. The only thing that put me off the book was how there was no clear single main character - it was as if there were three or four. It was too confusing for me and didn't allow the reader to fully connect to any of the characters as they were each introduced as supportive roles (imagine the main character's best friends had a chance to all say their ...more

Story Overview:

Set in a fictional fantasy world, this story tells the story of a King deposed by his brother and his attempt to regain his crown with the help of his loyal General; Morgan and his Marshalls and the mysterious and beautiful Queen of the Fairies. As can be expected from such a book, there is battle scenes, lives lost, magic, mythical creatures and romance.

Cover Page: 19/20

A striking and bold statement on the front cover that when I look at it draws me in. The character on the front

A wonderfully woven tale of men, women, Fairy and magic. The King's evil brother has overthrown his kingdom. Oryan grieves deeply for his wife who valiantly fought the intruders so that her husband and young son had time to escape. Morgan, his Lord High Marshall and dearest friend, is with them when Kyriay, Queen of the Fairy, comes with her people to rescue them. So begins the story. An immense struggle for power and peace ensue, but with the help (and love) of those willing to do whatever is n ...more

Song of the Fairy Queen. A spectacular book in which very much is brought together. Adventure, love, loyalty and trust, battle, betrayal and the worst that people can bring up, all forged into a story that made it hard to put the book down even when my eyelids demanded it.

The characters are all detailed in a very friendly and convincing way, their interaction - be it with friend of foe - is believable (important especially for a fantasy book). Every new setting that I was led into became real in

I'm always delighted when I find a free download that I can give a 4 or 5 star rating to and while this is not quite a 5-star (must keep to re-read) it is a solid 4 star. Author takes a standard framework for the plot, fairies, humans, evil brother to the king, dark wizards, etc. and weaves an interesting storyline around it. Good characterization and some atypical relationships between the fairy communities and the human characters.

The excellent characterization got me through the few slow port

I started this book and didn't want to put it down. I enjoyed the characters and their relationships, I enjoyed the interplay between characters, and the movement between story line. it was a tender and touching lovestory, and story of friendships and loyalties, of faith and trust. with plenty of battle scenes and tales of daring do!
It's a good book to pass the weekend, just for fun, without having to expand your mind or learn anything. Perfect also for a rainy day!

I didn't like this book sadly. There were some really cool battles but the in between times were so boring. I thought the character development was off. I just didn't love any of them. The relationship between Morgan and Kyri got annoying. There were way too many sex scenes and if I had to hear about how "her wings sparkled in the sun" and "Morgan was amazed" I was going to throw my Kindle out the window! I didn't even make it half way through. Very disappointing.
Staci AKA Patches
I really loved this book. It is a long book and soo Full of action, friendship, romance.
I really was pulled into this book, I was right there as one of the characters!!!
A must read for all that love different books, and want to step out of their usual genre. If this is your genre and you haven't read this book You need to! You will not be disappointed!
You never know if you will Need to call upon a fairy anytime in the future!
Heather L. Tapia
I love this book, the characters, the imagery. I can hear the wings of the fairies flapping as they dive and protect in each battle scene. I know Valerie personally and I am honored to be connected to such a wonderful story teller and creator of worlds.
This is a quality experiential journey you deserve to take yourself on!

I'm still reeling from the final chapters of this book but it was amazing. I absolutely loved this book. It was heartwarming, gripping and emotional, all rolled into one.

The characters were really well developed and I came to love the good and dislike the bad.
Alexandra Tamasan
A story with loads of potential, but some fairly disappointing use of descriptions and characterisation. Second half picks up significantly in pace, but I was already getting tired by then.

I really really enjoyed this book and couldn't hardly put it down - read well into last night to finish it....
Melissa
Wow this is a detailed book! You feel like your really in it! Good so far!

I'm a frequent reader of indie authors, and I'm not bothered by lack of polish when a book engrosses me, makes me feel, or generally abides by a few basic linchpins: decent plot, decent writing, decent characters, or at least one of the three.
Here I found none.
The story circles around and around, and it's dull, sappy, predictable, repetitive and the book is too long for its few working elements. There are abrupt changes of pace and timeline which throw off the reader, a few incongruities, a lot

In many ways Song of the Fairy Queen was a refreshing jump back into the realm of wizards, knights, and magical creatures. Some good, some bad, duking it out for the future of the world. With many of the elements of high fantasy included, the story read a little bit like an Arthurian legend. The romance comes from an unexpected angle between High Marshall Morgan and the Queen of Fairy. The story follows them as they try to defeat the bad guys, protect the good guys, and still find time for thems ...more

This is one of those books where I really enjoyed it and I think it deserves the 5 stars, but I know there are too many minor annoyances and so I should give it 4 star.. but I won't:)

This story takes us on a journey of a king who gets forced into exile by his evil half-brother and does all he can to get back his rightful seat. The Fair and the humans, under the king's law, lived in peace, but when the half-brother takes over he calls war on the Fair as well and so they team up with the king to h

If I picked books by their covers, I probably wouldn't have downloaded, which meant I would have missed out on an enjoyable book.

A more accurate rating is probably 3.5. It is a good enjoyable fantasy. It has some great characters, an interesting plot, and a comfortable world that is very earth-like except for the fairies.

Unfortunately, there were two things I didn't like as much about it, but one of them is just my taste and not something wrong with the book. I found some of the love scenes a b

I want to start by saying that I really enjoyed the story and I did read it in pretty much one sitting. Kyri and Morgan are great together, with just the right amount of love and lust. Was it the best fantasy I ever read? No. Was it the worst I ever read? Far from. Was it a good romance? Oh yeah!

The story is based on a plot that has been done many times in the genre, but it had certain parts and characters that made it original enough. Even

I absolutely devoured this book on an international flight, and I keep coming back for more! The plot is beautifully written, heart-wrenching in both the gross-sobbing-inducing way, and the beautiful touching 'awh' moments. Fell in love with all the characters instantly! Valerie Douglas, amazing job!
Karen
No formating at all. Though the plot is pretty amazing. Wished the story was more focuused on the faaaae queeeen though.

If you enjoy fantasy, you will love this book.

Song of the Fairy Queen is a classic fantasy for people who still like classic fantasy.
It's said of Fairy that if you are in dire need and call the name of one, they will come. King Oryan, with his castle under siege and his son in his arms, could not be in any more dire need. With only High Marshall Morgan and a handful of Morgan's men at his back, there is only one place left to run, up, and only one ally who can save them.

I started off feeling a little confused, and wanting Gwenifer to feature a little more in subsequent chapters. However, by the time I had got to about chapter three, I was hooked! I wasn't quite expecting some of the twist and turns and the timeline of the story, but I became engrossed and couldn't wait to see the outcomes. Well written and a good read.
Amanda
I just couldn't do it. I made it about halfway through and decided to give up. The story itself wasn't terrible, it was just all over the place. I couldn't keep up with who was talking and thinking. And while I don't mind being told once in a while that the Fairy Queen is gorgeous, I have a limit. I'm sure it is a good book, it just isn't for me.
Lisa
This book was wonderful! Great plot and fantastic characters, good action and romance. It also kept me guessing what was coming next and made me stay up to read more, which is a good thing. The only reason I rate it a 4 instead of a 5 is the few instances of graghic sex scenes that weren't needed to add to the storyline.
