Pray for Fey is a charming little book written in a lovely style. The idea presented - an exploration of whether fairies have souls - is an interesting concept, and Woollacott's description of fairies as natural creatures with heightened physical abilities of speed and agility and a strong affinity to the woods, but no magical powers or wings, is intriguing. The scenes and settings are described beautifully, with such attention to detail that I felt as though I was walking there with the charact ...more

I received this book for free through the Goodreads First Reads, and here is my opinion about it.
My rating: 4.5 stars

This fairytale tells the story of Fey, who is part of a wingless kind of fairies and possesses only limited magical abilities. After the death of her sister, Fey eagerly wants to meet her in another existence, but her kind has no knowledge of an afterlife. Therefore, she searches for religious guidance among the human beings, and she finds it in Samuel, an old priest who teaches h

Genre: Fairy tale with religious undertones

I need to mention I received this book in Goodreads giveaway. It is a fairy tale about a fairy named Fey who is deeply affected by the death of her sister. She wants to know whether she possesses a soul which can make transition into afterlife after death where she can meet her sister. Fey befriends a priest from a village church (fairies almost never had any kind of contact with humans before) who tries to teach her about faith and God.

The book is nice

I won this book on goodreads from firstreads. It was a very short read, however, jammed packed with emotion and constant activity. Fey the main character has a few powers and no wings, and want's to reach lost loved ones. So fey chooses to seek help for this matter and in turn gets a better gift with finding a relationship with god. I loved this book even though it was short ir was stil complete. I was left with closure and no wonder. I rate this book 4 stars, and would highly recommend this boo ...more

This book at first I was rather unsure of however I can't explain how much this book is so touching and amazing. The book was written so beautifully and the emotions within were so profound that I felt myself moved to tears. In all honesty, I did not expect this. The idea of religion annoyed me and I was annoyed that the character left the forest. However the execution of the story was so good that I could not help bit give this tale 5 stars.

I won this book in First Reads contest from Goodreads.com

I'm not a native speaker. I'm from Spain and currently studying English by myself.

Pray for Fey doesn't have your usual fairies, in common folklore fairies have wings, they are short and can use magic to some extent. Fairies in this book, however, are depicted as human-like creatures, they have no wings, their ears are pointy and they have dark-green markings around their eyes, the only magic they can use is withdraw their nourishment from

Disclosure: I received this book for free as part of a contest.

I was intrigued by this book for it's main concept; the question of whether faerie folk have a soul. It's an interesting concept in mythology and one writers like Neil Gaiman have dealt with. I was curious about how Woollacott would approach this idea.

It starts off promising: Fey, a young fairy, is devastated by the loss of her sister. Faerie folk have no concept of an afterlife, and Fey, being unable to accept this, approaches huma

The story of the fairy and the forest where she comes from, and then her wanting to be amongst the humans, is interesting. However the story of how the humans treated Fey was just a morbid Cinderella story. I didn't really sympathize with Fey for the mistreatment by the Revilles because she continually chose to stay there, so it was her own dumb fault. I guess I just would have rather enjoyed her life in the forest than make the decision she did. The ending was very dull - just the generic enter ...more
