Short story exclusively for newsletter subscribers.

This was a fairy tale, all right. Just not the pleasant, happily-ever-after type.

I’m Ivy Lane, and this is the story of how I became known as the faerie killer.

Ever since the faeries destroyed the world as we knew it, I’ve been a captive of an evil Sidhe lord, trapped in his realm with a hundred other human prisoners. I’m

Nice quick prequel to the Changeling Chronicles. I would have preferred to get more of her time in Faerie but it was good to see how she defeated Avakis. I am also curious about Gerry.

I received Faerie Killer as a review copy from the author/publisher (via BookFunnel). The gifting did not determine the review/rating, which reflects my honest opinion. This was a decent read for a short story (equivalent to a few chapters of a novel), but there were holes in the background, so the reader may feel somewhat adrift. There are typos and misused words, but as I received what could be an advance copy, rather than a final version, I will not reduce the rating for edit/grammar errors.

Short-ish Novelette about Ivy, who's been trapped in Faerie for three years. The story of Faerie Killer encompasses just a few days in which she's trained to kill the faerie king who kidnapped her, along with many others from her hometown.

I wish I could tell you how long the novelette is, but as I got this, apparently ARC version of the story, for joining Ms. Adams' mailing list, I can't find that information. Nonetheless, this was an enjoyable, YA fantasy.

I really enjoyed reading this novella. Even for a story this short in size, you can really see how gifted Emma L. Adams is at putting her thoughts down on the pages of this book. It's full of action and contains quite a few thrills, and completely opens up the world of this series. I now am a bit curious to read others in this set, just to see what happens as the story continues.

It's more of slice of life. It's a very short story about how a girl who was kidnapped by an evil Sidhe lord manages to defeat him and get back home. She's there for three years from the time she's 13 to the time she's 16.

I enjoyed this story. Ivy is a powerful but reluctant hero. Emma L Adams did a great job keeping Ivy human.
