I could not finish this book.
Reasons why:
1. The first person present tense of the writing. I get that it was probably done to allow the reader to get to know the characters better. That's fine. But it leads me to my second reason...
2. The characters were atrocious. Nothing but perfect, beautiful people. There is no depth to them. They are utterly shallow and materialistic.
3. The author decided to alternate view points. This is a common technique and can be handy. Except for the fact that I woul

Julie Kagawa step aside because L.P. Dover is here to give you competition. Her work is captivating and full of adventure. L.P. Dover is an amazingly talented writer. Forever Fae takes you on adventure like no other. I love the modern twist on fae's. The heat and passion between Calista and Ryder is INTENSE to say the least. There are different characters who each have their own personality and they are all unique in their own ways, you just can't help to love them all.

I truly can't believe the good reviews this book has received. I didn't even get halfway through it. The writing did not flow well at all. The characters were so juvenile. The different point of views were just annoying. It's so repetitive and I just couldn't handle how predictable the characters were. A very cheesy and lame book.

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers in that I just don't understand why there are so many five-star reviews. Yes - I definitely thought it was a clever plot with a unique setting. However, the writing is amateurish at best, and confusing in several places where there are obviously words missing, or words transposed. The idea was interesting; I just didn't think it was executed very well.

They meet on Calista's becoming of age Ceremony where warriors battle to become her guardian. When they meet it's instant love at first sight.

Cute and sweet romantic tale!

I’ve read a lot of fiction featuring faeries, including kids lit, YA, and adult: Iron King by Julie Kagawa, Tithe by Holly Black, Spiderwick Chronicles also by Holly Black, Fablehaven by Brandon Mull, Cold Days by Jim Butcher, and Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs.

Everybody handles the fae in a slightly different manner, and I had to put aside my pre-conceived notions. L.P. Dover has a fresh way of depicting the fae. Certainly not quite as dark as I am used to (even th

“Forever Fae” by L.P. Dover

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

5 STARS! I just needed to say that first because “Forever Fae” was just AWESOME! L.P. Dover caught my attention with this beautiful cover, reeled me in with the first page, and kept me sucked in the whole story! Everything about this book was fabulous! “Forever Fae” is a book I suggest adding to your To Be Read list if you are a fan of magical stories involving faeries and other mystical Fae beings.

Well I have to say that I am not normally a person who reads books about fantasy like this but I gave it a shot and am so happy I did!

Forever Fea a book about the Winter court and Summer court and the Prince and Princess from each. A undeniable pull between the two draws them to each other. The Winter court Prince will do anything to protect his Princess. The Dark Sorcerer will do anything to get her in his hands.

Forever Fae was an excellent journey into the world of the Fae. Leslie Dover's descriptions created a stunning world. It unfolded right there in your mind. Her characters were believable and came to life to populate the world she had created. The story sucked me into this world and said "Don't put me down until your done." And then, it left me wanting more! I need to know what happens next. An excellent novel, Forever Fae mixes Shakespeare and modern fairy tales. Dover uses the perfect amount of ...more

This book was like no other faerie book I have read, my first impression was that I love the way she sets the story. She builds the characters and you are immediately drawn in. The love was perfect it was something all girls dream of and wants. People say that there was a love triangle, but in reality it was a best friend in love with someone that was made for someone else. I believe it was a necessary one because it showed the length he was willing to go to save her i

Humor, action, romance and fairys..... how could you go wrong!!! This is the story of a fae girl who finds love and fights evil in a world that lives beside our modern one. A refreshing twist on a fae story. But this is by no means a YA book. The love scenes are a bit racy, though not beyond something you’d usually find in a romance novel. The writing flowed well and the description of the fae world took me to a different place. It is beautiful and unique! I liked the fact that the author has in ...more

I love stories on the Fae, so many directions you can go. I enjoyed this take on the Fae culture, the faery courts are all here, the story itself was well written and intriguing, it did not disappoint. This story follows Calista, the Summer Court’s princess when she is to get her guardian assigned− It’s a very special ceremony. Merrick, one of her friends, has been in love with her since he can remember and he is determined to win this honor and win her heart. But the Winter Court’s Prince Ryder ...more

Stars: 4.5

Overall: I felt the magic dripping off the pages. This book had me laughing, crying and a little lusty at some points. =) My only compliant is that i felt the characters descriptions and their histories were just kind of pushed onto you in the beginning of the book. I just wished she would've given the characters a little more time to delvope. Other then that i LOVED the story and i really enjoyed the new take on fae

What a novel! I don't know where to begin on this one....Once Prince Ryder laid eyes on Calista it was curtains for life as her knew it. It seemed that destiny was set to take over from their first secret meeting by the lake. There fairy tale may turn into a nightmare if a certain dark sorcerer gets his way.

OMG! I am so awe struck by this book that I may have to go read it a second or third time. I was hooked from the title onward. I have always had a love of fairies and other mystical characters of the sort and reading Forever Fae took that love to a whole new level! L.P. Dover spun a wonderful mystical land in my head that I will see for years to come. Her attention to detail in the scenery and the characters in her book are brought to life so

Filled with with humour, suspense, romance and a lovely level of heat, Forever Fae left me feeling fulfilled and ready for for more. The books characters, Calista, Merrick and Ryder, provide fantastic relationship interactions and witty, heart felt dialogue. All of these characters were so very easy to follow and identify with, that I was never quite sure who I was cheering on.

The passionate development in this storyline effectively kept me gripped; I was so very ready for these characters to ge

Calista was a feisty stubborn princess but knew her mind,and it was awesome when her and Ryder got together because from that first moment they knew that they were meant to be together,even tho she had her guardian Merrick that was so in love with her.That was so heart felt at the end when Ryder and him were fighting the dark sorcerer and he took the iron dagger instead of Ryder as he knew that Ryder and Calist

Forever Fae is a book that's filled with emotion, action and an unusual love triangle between summer court and winter court. Calista the summer court princess is a strong minded stubborn girl, she doesn't like to be judged unfairly and doesn't mind putting those who do judge her in there place. Ryder the winter court prince does judge other fae unfairly which results in extreme funny moments especially between himself and Merrick, Calista guardian. But Calista knows how to handle these men.

What I enjoyed most about this story was the combination of familiar fae creatures and characters mixed with an original story. I loved the royal families including Queen Mab and King Oberon, which should ring some bells for most, and the the others that surround them. I'm a huge fan of a book that creates a full world for their characters to live in, and Forever Fae does not disappoint. You can almost see and feel everything that these guys are doing and seeing around them, and that is not an e ...more

I don't usually read fairy stories, and I will be honest, I didn't know what to expect from this one. The writing flowed smoothly and the description of the Fae world really took you to a different place. I was feeling a mixture of emotions as I read through it {in one sitting}.. I think it had everything; humor, love, betrayal, lust, good, evil, and everything in between. I will be looking for the next book in the series to be a wonderful trip through fantasy land just like this one is.
