it was amazing

Hea y'all Anne here and I've just finished reading Ever Shade by Alexia Purdy and wow what a great faery tale!! This book is seriously imaginative and will rope you into the story right away. It wants for nothing and is awesome for lovers of Fae and the like creatures. This book is much like Lord Of The Rings but with more faeries and their friends. The story line is exciting and filled with twists and plot secrets that will leave you gasping and waiting for more. Alexia has an amazing imagination she has built an entire world that straddles our very own, she tells of places that would exist right in our back yards yet remain hidden from human eyes. The story of Shade is one of a normal upbringing and life with love and loss but as she stumbles across a secret world her life takes a dramatic turn from basic normal to unreal possibilities. She learns that her whole life has been hidden in order to protect her so that she could one day find and complete her quest and along the way learn what she needs to know in order to survive in this new and dangerous world. The scenes that are painted by Alexia are grand and whimsical and had my mind soaring to new places of bright and vibrant colors and had me aching to be able to explore such places. The characters are so well explained each for their specific roll in the story. Shade finds a friend in the most unlikely of places, the brother of the Teleen who attacked her and failed miserably to hurt her. However Shade has got to come to terms with who she is and her role to play in the growth and future of the faery race. This book is a magical journey of learning how to accept who you are in life and the people you must allow to help you along the way. The story is a fantastical read and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves Fae and the journey of a half breed who still has lots of story left to go. 5 out of 5 stars for Ever Shade by Alexia Purdy. I can't wait for the next book to come out so I can see where Shade goes and how her new life unfolds.
