The author really has you where he wants you with this book. If you have enjoyed this series and wish to know how it really ends you are out of luck.

Unfortunately this is the last book of the series and it really does in with about one million cliffhangers. Its not the typical, " oh I really loved these characters and want to know how the rest of their lives go cliffhangers". Honestly you are awaiting a decision and consequences of that decision at the end of the novel with no hope of getting t...more
Meh. This was a lousy end to the series. From what I remember of it, I'm just glad the series is over. Tania/Anita is such a Mary-Sue that I couldn't stand her anymore.

:D (yay! the sixth book! I got it! yay!)

:| (um, this isn't as good as I expected...)

>:O (omg. tania, NOBODY CARES!)

>.< (make it stop, please...)

Loved the book and read it very quickly. I was a bit frustrated at the end for reasons I don't want to say. Let us just say that I am deeply hoping for a seventh book. It's deeply a sad thing to think that it might end here with so much left undone. I would still definately suggest reading it because it was a great adventure. Hope to read more!

I’m so happy I finally got my hands on this sixth installment of the Faerie Path series. I knew it had been released, but I wasn’t able to find it anywhere in the stores, so I recently ordered it online.
My review may a bit awkward here as I am a tad confused on the book itself, mainly because I don’t understand if this is the final book or not in the series. If this is just a 6th book with another one coming, I love it. However if this is the conclusion to the series as the blurb says, then I am...more

This book is about a girl named Tania. She is a Faerie princess. Tania can walk between worlds, between Faerie and the mortal world. She loves a boy named Edric. Tania gets sent to the mortal world and can't remember anything about her Faerie self. She has taken her parents to Faerie before and her mom tries to tell her what has happened, but she doesn't remember. She goes to her friend's house and Edric appears with her sister Rathina, using the Dark Arts to get to her. Then Tania's dead sister...more
I should have written reviews right after each book, because I read them so quickly that I can't seperate them in my mind. All 6 books are just one long story...a good one, but a long one. I remember really enjoying it and not being able to put it down. That's not good when it is such a long series because my housework tends to suffer. I didn't like this series as much as Maria V. Snyder's stories, but it kind of reminds me of them. Teenagers discovering magical abilities, evil villians, heros,...more
I thought the beginning of the series was amazing. Simply put. As the series progressed, I found myself skipping pages, skimming pages, and just wanting to get to the end. I was curious as to how the series would end and decided to read the last book. Big disappointment.
The ending left more questions than the previous book and the series feels unfinished. There are limitless possibilities on what happens afterward and the book is just a long journey...To me, it felt like an unfinished book/seri...more
Really I give this book about 3.2 stars. I think it was slightly but noticeably better than the last 2 books, in that I actually did not feel like the entire middle portion wasn't necessary. Though I would have been comfortable with it ending at about page 180. The "trick" was so clearly evident to the reader, and after all similar instances where the reader can pretty accurately figure out the consequences of a given scene, that there was no real uniqueness/difference in how it played out. You...more
I don't know why I keep reading the next book in this series. It's dumb and the writing is terrible. I guess I just want to know how the story ends. I do not recommend this series.
The Charmed Return is the last book in the Faerie Path Series and while I'm a touch sad to see it go, I'm glad it's over.

The Charmed Return, if I recall right, is not as good as its predecessors. Maybe my reading level or expectations weren't as high as they are now, but I still remember loving them. I didn't come very close to loving this one at all, liking it a little would be more accurate.

I felt very distant from all the characters, especially Tania. It felt like I was reading about characte...more

Anita/Tania is half mortal, half fairy princess. At this particular moment, however, all Anita knows is her mortal side, forgetting all the previous experiences she has had. When she realizes that she has lost about 9 weeks worth of memories, she goes searching for answers. When her mom tells her the truth of her heritage and what has been happening, she thinks her mom has gone completely crazy. Further details convince her of the truth – and the need for her to get back to the world of the fae...more

Recommends it for: everyone!!!
This was a perfect ending to the perfect series! I loved this book and it was a little confusing at the beginning. Frewin Jones leads the reader to think one thing just to find out you were totally wrong. It makes sense in the end but not if you read the last page before you start the book. The ending was epic and not a huge surprise. I could of guessed that he would of put it in the book... just in a different spot though. This is a must read and will not disappoint you. The series are wonderfu...more
My daughter is a big fan of this series and I liked the first 3 books of the series quite well myself. My main gripe with the last 2 books has been that the author is evidently going to milk this story line for all he can get. I mean, how many times can he come up with a new and different Faery villian? Isn't it time to let this series just end? I found myself skimming the last third of the book, just so I could move on to something else. Then, I have to remind myself that I am far past the age...more

Good series for a bit of light reading after finishing a harder series. The books could have been combined to make a shorter series.
I have read this series since it came out. I slacked off for two years and didn't read the last book. Well I finally bought it and had forgotten everything I had read in the previous books. So I reread the first five then read the sixth. I found myself having a difficult time reading it, due to being slightly bored. I was not happy with the end. I feel like it just left you hanging and there is not a seventh book in the works. So I loved the series just not the series ending. I would highly reco...more
Not as good as the last few books, mainly because it left several questions unanswered, and being the last book in the series, that's not exactly a good thing. In some ways, it felt like the author tried to do too many things, and he introduced new people and new plots without tying up the old ones first. I did see on his site that he's thinking of writing an online-only novella to answer some questions, as a lot of people seem to feel the same way I do, so I'm hoping for that. It's just too bad...more
Gah! Book was okay until the middle of the book then that's where I say END THE BOOK NOW! The books was predictable, whiny and basically a drag. It took me forever to get through it and the entire time I was hoping that Jones would write just as good as the first three books in this series. But NO! All through the entire book, Tania was uncertain about her relationship with Edric. She got dreams that she was untrustworthy then they kissed and everything was better! It went like that quite a few...more
The thrilling conclusion to Jones' Faerie Path may be a slow start with memories forgotten, but it is filled with action and fast-paced tension. Readers will not be able to distinguish between dream or reality as two-faced dreams and reality haunt Tania in both worlds. However, the series end with questions still unanswered and a cliched ending. A likeable ending to the series, but bittersweet with questions that will haunt die-heart fans everywhere.
Despite the cover, this series is an imaginative telling of two worlds. Through the story we face danger, friendship, love, loss, and heroism. The writing is simple and the story not complex. However, I was entertained enough to keep reading and find out the fate of the characters. The ending was sweet and actually satisfying, though there are a few things unresolved if the author wanted to add more.
Margo Mead
Good book. All of this series has been enjoyable. The only complaint I have is that it seems to get a little repetitive at points. They get to a place, and think they've completed the mission, and then find out there's a whole new mission involving a whole new quest that is far away. At some point you're ready for it to be over and for them to live a nice quiet life.

Terrible ending

i started this series years ago and never finished it. at the time i loved the books and couldn't wait for the next one. this book must not have been released yet and i completely forgot about it because i'd moved onto something else. i'm glad i read this. even though it was a major clusterfuck of drama, it was a nice end to an old series i used to love.
When this series began I really liked it, but as it went on my opinion changed. Now, I think the books have some good points but overall I don't like them too much. The series could have been written so much better. I mean, I liked all the faerie stuff and the book held my interest most of the time, but there was something off-putting about it.

Awaiting delivery of this book at McNally Robinson.
This book is finally delivered. March 15th 2011.The sixth book was definatley too far fetched for me. I didn't know if I was reading Shakespeare, mixed with Twiligt and on and on. This is the last book of this series I will by. I get it now.

This is the sixth, and probably last, book in Jones' Faerie Path series, which has been my cheesy fairy romance crack of choice since they first started coming out. There are one or two loose ends left open, but overall it's a satisfying conclusion to the series.
Great Book I loved it but i wish there was more to the ending, i dont know like something better, okay sure they engaged but i want to know what the king has to give up but other than that i loveeeddd iiiittt!!!!
I enjoyed the entire series more than I thought I would. I finished them all in a few weeks.

This one was great. Liked the twist in the story. Made me go on an emotional roller coaster during some parts.
