A magical, exciting sequel that ventures back to the fey world. Princess Tamisin finds herself a victim of a kidnapping, meets the father she didn't realize existed, and quickly learns that not everything is as it seems in the fey world. Now I know why so many middle graders rave about E.D.'s books. She's a fabulous story teller and though I didn't read the first book in this series, I loved this story. It wasn't hard at all for me to follow along with what's going on. I'm a huge fan of fey lore ...more
I don't think this book is for me.

Three years between a book and its sequel is a long time, so I don't remember much about Wings than there was a girl who finds out she was adopted and really the daughter of fairy royalty - oh yeah, and the story had animal-goblins thrown in there too.

So I start reading the sequel and find out the main character is really starting to get on my nerves, and I can't understand why she is trying so hard to pick a fight with her boyfriend Jak. And then enters Dasras

Tamisin was shrunken ,kidnapped, and had the worst week of her life. Well second worst. Titiana's army was going after her, her boyfriend, Jak the cat goblin, was traveling across the Land of Fey to find her, and her father was apparently alive. Was her father dead of was she a full-blooded fairy? What were the strange feelings towards the blue boy? Why was everybody trying to kill her? Read to find out.

Fairy Lies is like Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream. He wrote the story of Titiana and

After the spectacular book that was Wings, is it any wonder that I fell just as hard for Fairy Lies? With a new cast of hilarious characters combining with old friends, Fairy Lies had me laughing and rolling on the floor. Tamisin’s continued adventures in the land of the fairies were entertaining and had me rapidly flipping pages. Tamisin is kind and clever, and she was the perfect heroine for this story. I loved how despite the harsh court structure of the fairy court, Tamisin was still generou ...more
This Books was a romance,adventure, and, fanstasy in one book! i reallly loved this book! This is the first book i gave 5 stars. It gave a who new view on the supernatural world. The chacracters personalities were easy to determine so to me i could predict the choices they made even before readin it. But other than that i reccomend this book. Its only 23 chapters, and the chapters are about 5-7 pages long. It took me only 2 days to read it! i could of finish reading it in one day but i had other ...more
I went to the public library I always go to borrow books. I found this book and read the blurb, it sounded interesting so I borrowed it and read it

Something that DID NOT please me was when main character named Tamisin "changed"

QUOTE - "Come on down," he said. "Coming," I said spreading my wings, fluttering down. Seeing him look at my wings, I couldn't help but blush

When this scene happened I was like : ARGH !

Overall this book was rather interesting (that is if you are a fan of fantasy and whate
Fantastic! A really good read. There was emotion, confusion, aggravation, suspense, some action, great imagination and creativity, and a good and sweet HEA. This is something I wouldn't mind reading again. I loved the characters, even though a lot of them in this one I wanted to line 'em all up and knock all their heads together. As for the others, they were terrific and great friends. This had me turning pages and reading into the night to finish. I'm glad there were some good characters to hel ...more
If you really enjoyed the first wings book (like myself) then I think you will be disappointed by this book. Maybe it's just that wings was my childhood favorite and my ideas of what I like in books has matured (then again, the salamander spell is still my favorite book) but this just did not have the same appeal to me as the other ED Baker books have.

It was alright. Maybe 2.5 stars. I don't know. There were some cute parts, but mostly I was disapointed. The writing seemed a little juvenile, but more than that, it just wasn't that great. Tamisin no characters developed more, and there weren't any twists. Everything just seemed to easy. And the pace was always either to fast, or not fast enough. Plus, Dasras was pathetic and annoying. It was cute when Jack got jelous, but Jack and Tamisin were separate for most of the book, which was annoying. ...more
I love myths and fairytales. While now there are an abundance of those kind of books coming out I find that few authors that are actually writing original and well written stories. I think E.D. Baker is one of them. The book was a fun, quirky, interesting story with enough there to make me want to read more of her books. I really enjoyed this one.

wow I mean WOW!! what an amazing book! It was amazing, funny, there was suspense, and romance! I've read both and after the first I didn't think it could get better! I really hope there will be a third <3

It's more like fantasy and exciting during the war of Titania and Oberon.

It was pretty good. I like fairies, so I liked it.
Not as good as the first, but I liked it!:)
This is another charming book by E.D. Baker.

Great book, read both books in series.
This is like 2 1/2 stars. It was ok but not nearly as good as the first book. I feel like Baker is getting lazy with her writing. Her stories are good, but her last couple of books have seemed..dumbed down...or just summaries of the story. Wings (as it was originally called) seemed like a YA novel, this one a children's story. It was a little too long between books, I had forgotten so much about the original.
Cute. Defiantly a book for a younger audience. Lacked some of the depth of emotion in novels for older readers. I got very annoyed at points with Tamisin's lack of knowledge of the story of A Midsummer Night's Dream. By her age I would have read it in school and the book seems to be a classic. I got a wee bit ticked at points when references were made and not understood.

My daughter loves books about fairies, so I think that this book will be one she will like in a few years. The plot is interesting but not complicated, and Tamisin becomes a good role model. I think I would have liked to read the prequel Wings first, but oh well!
Girls who like E.D. Baker's other works will definitely also like this one. It's the sequel to "Wings", Baker's updated take on the story of Titania, Bottom, & Oberon. Baker does an excellent job with taking the traditional fairy tale & making it a bit more modern.
This was a good sequel to, "Wings". It is the continuing story of Tamisin and Jak and some of the other characters in the first book. There are some new characters in the book also. I liked this story, and I hope that there will be another sequel.
It was cute. Thats about all I have to say. It was like a really long. summary. I didn't go into detail, it was like she went her and then her and then this happened and grrr..... Any way easy read.....
the story seemed good... but the drama and conflicts seem too easy. Like there was no real sense that the heroes might fail in their quest, too much help from allies? I don't know... I liked the story.
With less time being spent in the human world, this book worked a bit better for me than its predecessor did. On the whole it was a fun book that my kids and I enjoyed reading together.
Zoe Miner

I loved this book as much as the first one the way it was kept interesting all throughout the book and the way it ended and started was great!
I was so sad for this book to end I love the characters and love being a part of the fey world it's do fun learning more of jak and tamisin I want more books
