I am extremely impressed by Feyland: The Dark Realm. Once I read the synopsis for it, I was sure I would love it, but I certainly did not expect to love it as much as I did. I have to admit, it wasn't exactly what I was expecting it to be, but I loved what it was.

The blend of faeries (fey? I still don't know what the right term to use is. Someone please tell me!), ballads, and video games was amazing. It might seem like a strange combination, but Anthea Sharp wove everything together perfectly so that it wasn't strange at all. Instead, everything made perfect sense. Each element was given much thought and care. I enjoyed getting to see the elements individually and as they came together as a whole.

The characters were fabulous. I loved Tam and Jennet's relationship and how it progressed throughout the novel. I loved it that they were able to see beyond appearances and dismiss stereotypes to see each other for who they really were. They bonded quickly and had a strong friendship throughout the novel, and it was all completely believable. I never felt like the development of their relationship was happening too quickly. I also enjoyed Marny, Tam's friend, and I wish we could have seen more of her. I really hope she makes a greater appearance in the sequel.

The uniqueness of the story is fantastic; it's what made me want to read the book in the first place, and it's what kept me captivated by the story throughout the novel. The concept of fae using video games as a portal to invade our world is creepy, but so awesome. I have never read anything like Feyland: The Dark Realm, and now that I have, I want to read more like it.
