I had the extreme pleasure and honor of helping edit this book for Alexia Purdy, and let me tell you, if you thought the first book (Ever Shade (A Dark Faerie Tale #1) was Awesome, a real page turner, or even "risked taking your Kindle Fire into the shower with you, then you're going to be in for a treat with this one.

The character's are so well written, the adventures extraordinary, new lands to explore, and so much more.

While editing this I found myself, without realizing it, acting as Shade,

I received a free eBook from the R2R Program in exchange for a honest review.

Overall I liked book 1 better. Like book one, it is still technically an urban fantasy, but tends to stick primarily to the fantasy part. Once again, Shade is trying to walk the line between human and fae, while searching for her lost fae heritage and figure out her powers. All there characters (for the most part) are the same from book 1, but we get to see deeper into their motivations, their past, and connections that

I was so excited to see the continuation of this story. There were no disappointments in here either. The story continues on about Shade’s discoveries of who she is and along the way the details emerge. I love seeing the same characters interact again. I really enjoyed seeing characters come back that I didn’t think would be a part of this story line but are a big part of it. Is Shade going to finally meet her dad or any family that she didn’t know even existed? What will she discover about the ...more

This book was even better than Ever Shade, the first book in the series. As impressed as I was with the first book, this book did not leave me disappointed. Once again, I was drawn in, hanging on every word, until the very end.
The series is creating an addict in me. I feel so disappointed when I reach the end of the story. I want it to never end!
Anyone who buys this book will not be disappointed. If you want to go on a fast-paced journey, one that will leave you breathless with excitement, a bo

Another AMAZING Book By Alexia Purdy! Her books and writing style seems to be getting better and better! This book had me Glued to my seat, I almost finished it in one sitting. I just wished I had Ever Winter to Follow.

Ever Fire is the 2nd Installment to the WONDERFUL Dark Faerie Series.
This book pretty much picks up where Ever Shade left off. Shade's coming into her powers and learning what to do with them. Dylan and Shade are still connected through the blood bond through-out the book. Shad

I have no idea how to do a review so i'll just babble :)
LOVED this book, i could NOT put it down, i am already impatiently waiting for book 3 :)
It caught me from the beginning coz i was still hanging from the end of book 1 (Ever Shade/Interim Blue) ~ i just had to jump right in.
There were lots of surprises with different characters & a few new characters to fall for along the way. I'm not an author or publisher but for me, it read really smoothly - easy to follow & kept me want

This fast-paced sequel to Ever Shade continues the dangerous journey of Shade, the part human part faerie teen.

Alexia Purdy continues to amaze me with the action-packed tale of fantasy that again kept me up nights reading. Having never been a fan of fantasy, I find that I cannot put these books down. The world that Ms Purdy has created is so full of life that it is hard to believe it is fantasy at all when you are reading.

Alexia has again cracked open a new realm of reading for me with this am

**I received this as a Read2Review through one of my groups, so I would like to thank the author and moderators for this opportunity.**

I have not read the first book in this series prior to this R2R even though I tried to get a hold of a copy before starting this one. Would having read book 1 change my opinion of Ever Fire? I doubt it, but I feel that I should preface this review with this bit of information. This review might contain small spoilers.

My review of Ever Fire by Alexia Purdy

Rating 5*****

This book was provided free from the author in exchange for honest literary review.

Shade is a one of a kind female... I mean literally one of a kind. Part changeling and part fey makes for an interesting life to say the least. Dividing her time between Faerie and the modern world she is anxious to learn how to unleash all of the magic that her heritage says she has. Unfortunately, some want her dead before that may ever happen.

I received this book from the author to give an honest review.

First let me say this cover is awesome! Now I believe this book was better than the first, it was full of action and a love triangle which if you read the first book you saw it coming! But who will she pick? And will she even pick anyone with everything she has going on in her life. Along with a lot of new twists and turns! One of my questions that I had from the first book got answered in this one to the full extent. The trials that

I hope you’re back pack is still packed… most probably packed and repacked as we continue the quest that Shade must TAKE and CONTINUE!!

Deeper and deeper we climb/travel into the world of Useen. But for Shade at times it’s déjà vu, oh my goodness what will she do? Her “bond” is called back by the Queen of the Teleen.

I've had this book for a while and always meant to read it immediately after reading Ever Shade but for some reason it didnt work out that way. I really do wish I had been able to read them all back to back, because I just could not step away from Shade's story.

This one is set just a little after Ever Shade, with Dylan living with Shade and her family (being her personal bodyguard) and Shade taking regular lessons in all things Faerie, from learning magic to battle skills. Drawn into yet another

I refuse to give any spoilers for this book away so this review will probably be a little short. And i should start by saying if you haven't read the first book in the series Ever Shade you should run out and read it before starting book two The first book sets up the main characters very nicely. I love this series and I couldn't wait to get my hands Ever Fire. The story continues shortly after the first book leaves off.

I loved Shade in this book. She really really grew as a character. She is finally getting some gumption. I can't wait to see where Alexia takes her next. She is absoloutely the star of this one. My favorite fae boyfriend was absent through most of the book which allowed Shade to take front stage. She is learning her powers and becoming less frazzled. This book has no "slow parts". The characters and storyline are already established so Alexia just jumps right in where Ever Shade left off. The li ...more

WOW........A lot happens in this continued story of A Dark Faerie Tale. A wild ride that had me hooked from beginning to end and a few new surprises that were a little unexpecting for me. This is a very fast paced and very well written story that will capture readers of all ages and make them starving for more!!

Shade has had enough time to come to terms with who and what she really is. Although her mind still has a hard time accepting the fact that she's part Changeling and a human. Not to mention the fact that she also has Fey blood running through her veins.

The changes she's experienced have helped her realize that she's much different than she was before. Her best friend shares the knowledge of what she went through in Faerie, even though she'll never say a word of it to anyone. Yet it's a secret t

I bought and read Evershade in hope that I could get a chance to read this book as a R2R book. So a big thank you to the author.

I enjoyed the world building in both books and getting to know Shade, watching her grow and mature.

I loved dipping into her world of fey and humans. I have to say that I really hate love triangles, but I do feel that the author portrayed this one more realistic than most and it looks like Shade will choose my favorite--brooding Dylan. I missed him in this story since
