I enjoyed Barb & J.C. Hendee's Rebel Fay quite a bit, though I had some problems with it. A lot happens, our protagonists are often in danger, and there are very few slack sections. We and Chap learn more about his purpose and origins, while Magiere gets a glimpse of her possible, highly unpleasant future. I appreciated the character development our protagonists get.

That said, sometimes I wanted to smack Leesil very hard for how often his obsession with finding and rescuing his mother from captivity in one of the elven territories led to him stupidly putting himself and his friends into danger he knew they didn't need to be in. It's part of the point of it, but it's still frustrating to read. The parts with Chane and Welstiel don't add up to anything for this book and seem to be set-up for something in the next book, so here they feel more like unnecessary distractions. All the accent marks and apostrophes strewn throughout the names and language of the elves--such as Brot’ân’duivé, Cuirin’nên’a, Léshiârelaohk, bóijt’äna, and Grôyt’ashia--really started to get on my nerves now that the book is full of elves.

I'll be picking up the next book.
