ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Thank you Sarah!! This was AMAZING!

5 twisted stars for a delightfully engaging tale!

fan art by The Magic Book Corner

Allie Hunter is the girl that no one sees. Or better said, they see and avoid. Not only because her twin sister Hulanna outshines her everywhere. Allie's prickly nature, combined with a hawk nose, too bright red hair, sharp features and a less than perfect figure make for the perfect combination for people to avoid.

I'm slightly addicted to faerie stories, so I was keen to try this one! It reminded me a little of An Enchantment of Ravens, and there was some definite enjoyable snark and cleverness in the dialogue. It features Allie, who's plunged into the roll of Hunter for her village, after a Fae Circle is open and takes her father and sister. Allie is somewhat to blame and loses her sight during the tragedy, so now she's desperate to do anything to fix the monsters infesting their village and get her ...more

DNFed it at 50%. I couldn’t keep reading this. I feel like I read a book completely different from what everyone who rated it 5 stars did. It was boring, cringy and didn’t make sense. There was a lot of lacking in details and development during scenes. The characters were horrible and had no personality. I just couldn’t push myself through this. I was expecting so much and I was completely disappointed.

I've never been more captivated by a book than I was with Fae Hunter! The author's writing style kept the story interesting and perfectly spaced. I started reading and didn't stop until the end!

I loved Allie, the main character. Strong, determined, and willing to push through pain - physical and mental - is what every great heroine is made of. With no care of her own self, she dove into everything headfirst and a determination born of righteousness and love.

I love the dark, beautifully twisted

I was provided a copy by the author, whom I want to apologize to for taking so long to read and review. The holidays hit and then my reading suffered. All I knew was that when I saw this cover I had to read this, it was gorgeous and just realky cool looking. I will say at first it took me a little bit to get into and to find the flow, I couldn't quite understand things at first. Then that changed, the longer you read, the more things click and make sense, turns out, this was a good book, and ...more

I really wanted to love this book, but I feel like I needed to push myself to read it. I felt like I was gearing myself up for something to happen and yet nothing major happened. Yet despite that, it was hard for me to put the book down. It's a good book if you want to go for a quick read and Souvrel made it especially entertaining, but Allie as a MC wasn't my favorite and it took a while to warm up to her and the townsfolk were starting to grate on me to the point of frustration.

I did enjoy Fae

Well wasn't that a dark, delightfully twisted, fae story

Fae Hunter is a fast paced, fun, fantasy perfect for those who like a good blend of violence and romance (strange mix if it's not your thing but I know plenty will love this!)

It's very reminiscent of The Cruel Prince series particularly early on when we're still in limbo as to who is good, who is evil and exactly what the hell is happening?!

For such a quick read the world building is wonderfully done. I didn't find myself confused and

I was not disappointed when I read this book. But I was completely surprised in all the best ways. This story does not have a bunch of happiness and rainbows. It has pain, anguish, failure, fear. It has real feelings. The fae have always intrigued me. And though in many books before this I've seen portrayals of the trickery and deception, hidden behind beauty, this books delves past all of that. The fae are cruel and hateful. They're pretty, until you see past the glamour to their true selves. ...more

I received an eARC of this book via the author. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.

Dark and twisted doesn’t even touch the surface of Sarah K.L. Wilson's new release Fae Hunter. This enchanting tale captivated me from the first word to the last. I personally don’t like to compare books, HOWEVER if you are a fan of The Cruel Prince, you will love this one.

Allie Hunter is not what I expected. She has a dry, sarcastic sense of humor, and to others she comes

Twisted yet beautifully alluring, the Fae have come back to the peaceful village atop the mountain peaks. Silly dancing around the circle of stones was supposed to be a game, a childish thing really yet Allie and her sister come to find it has deadly consequences. Are they ready to pay the price?

After Allie’s sister is taken or shall I say whisked away to Faewald, a land ruled by the Shining Ones, it leaves Allies world tipped upside down. Left to grieve her sisters loss she is bound by her

Published January 7th 2020 by Sarah K. L. Wilson

I was sent a free earc of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. I want to take a moment to state that this type of fae is very appealing to me. It’s not your Disney, sugary sweet kind of fairy. It’s more like the Irish faerie tales from history that show how proud, crafty, and non-human they are. It really works for my love

WOW! AMAZING!

WOW! This is the first book I have ever read by this author and I am just blown away! Right from page one I was transported into a world of magic and mayhem. So much good and evil but you don't know who is good and who may be evil. I know book one is just setting the stage for the rest of the series but WOW OH WOW, the imagery of this amazing authors words and the weaving of what is sure to be a fantastic tale, kept me on the edge of my seat with anticipation of what was going to

This is a book that projects the dark side of the Fae. Allie the young woman / hunter is thrown into this new world due her families mistakes. She becomes disconnected and isolated from the very people she has trained to help. Then she looses the one invaluable thing most take for granted. What will she have left except to hunt the very deceptive species that has destroyed her life. This is the first book I have read by Sarah.K.L.Wilson. She was able to obtain and consume my attention from the ...more

This was a really fast and delightful read, and it gets five stars purely for its quick paced entertainment value. In truth, I got to read this at the courtesy of the author in exchange for an honest review, and so I shall be!

This is not terribly sophisticated, and has the simplicity that you would expect for a book aimed at a younger crowd of readers, which actually leans me more toward a three or four star rating as a rule. HOWEVER, this was very entertaining to me, and I hated having to put

An amazingly beautiful book about a real kick-ass heroine, Allie whose twin, Hulanna was taken by the fae into the fae world supposedly never to be seen again. The twin mountain herders dared to go to the star stone circle and dance, the dance that would call the fae to them from Faewald however, what started off as a prank turned into Allie's worst nightmare. Her twin was gone, the door to the faewald had been opened and the evil fae were entering into the village full of bad intent and allie ...more

Do you think all fairies look and act like the everlasting Tooth Fairy? Think again.

If you grew up on the North American continent, you probably used to hear a lot of stories about fairies - small, winged creatures - who always help young kids achieve their dreams, be it Tinkerbell or The legendary Tooth Fairy.

Well, I grew up in Europe, and the stories we were read as children were a bit different, they didn't have the same happy vibe about the fairies: in those stories fairies were deceptive at

When I first started reading this book I was really excited, another book from one of my favorite authors. And then about halfway through I got a little bored and had a hard time picking up the book. It wasn't drawing me in like Sarahs books usually do.
BUT I am really glad I stuck with it, because it got better and I couldn't put it down. The story was just begging to be finished!

It is not the averaged story about fae, it's dark, not about pixie dust and fairytales. The main character is

This is the first book I have read from this author and, I have to say, I am a HUGE fan now. Fae Hunter was not what I was expecting. This isn't a book with beautiful, romanticized fae... and that's what makes it amazing. The fae in this book are cold, cruel, and twisted, just as they should be! The original fairy tales were dark and often deadly with sometimes gruesome depictions of consequences for the characters' actions. I love that this story feels like a callback to those original stories. ...more

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

I really enjoyed this, i was hooked from the beginning, what fan of fantasy doesn’t love a badass female hunting fae to save her village??

Astra is everything you want in a main character, feisty, cocky, sarcastic but also with a softer side, it broke my heart when she got blamed for everything that happened and the people lost faith in her.

Like any good hero though she didn’t let that phase her and carried on with what

Ms. Wilson has again outdone herself in the genre of fantasy. With such fantastic works as the 'Dragon School' books having drawn overwhelming positive attention expecting greatness once more seems to be a lofty goal. But Fae Hunter absolutely accomplishes greatness and even surpasses it. This is the sort of book you cannot put down, that each and every page you devour makes you only hungrier for the next. An incredibly detailed world that any fantasy lover worth their salt will absolutely adore ...more

I thought Fae Hunter was a unique story, and I enjoyed reading it. I loved Allie's strength. It was beautiful. Her blindness or maybe I wouldn't call it blindness, I'm not sure what to call it, but what I will say is that it made the story interesting. And I believe it added strength to her personality. The author had me all in my feelings. I felt Allie's despair over her sister and father, but I also could sense her determination to succeed.

I love stories about Fae, but I really wasn't

I really wanted to love this book, but I just felt like I couldn't get into it. It was hard to follow at some points, which made it hard to imagine what I was reading. Despite this, it was hard for me to put the book down. It's a good book if you want to go for a quick read and especially Souvrel made it entertaining, but I made the mistake of having high expectations when I started reading.

I did enjoy Fae Hunter, and I'm curious to see what will happen with Allie and Scouvrel in the next book!

This is a review after I requested an ARC book.

I want into this with am open mind as I haven't read many books about fae or fairies since I was a child reading Enid Blyton's books.
I can honestly say that I'm so glad I read this book as it's so well written!
Sarah writes a fantastical tale that's a little bit twisted but beautiful all at once.
The world building is descriptive without being overly so and the characters are well defined. An easy read that will definitely leave you wanting more!

Awesome read, well written with a great plot and characters. The world building is phenomenal. This is a fast paced, action packed read, that I couldn't put down! Allie is the fae hunter and she is confident, strong willed, and determined. I love that the fae in this book aren't idealized and are cruel, cold and twisted. My only complaints are it has a bit of a cliff hanger and i have to wait for the next book. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from Booksprout.

Overall, this was an enjoyable read. The take on Fae is intriguing, and the story is great. I will say that the beginning is slow and could have been trimmed of the constant whining of the MC (to the point where I debated putting the book down).

I'm glad I didn't!

About halfway through, everything ramped up and I found it hard to put the book down. Be warned, there is a cliffhanger ending, but it makes me anxious to get my hands on the next book rather than throw my kindle at the wall in a fit of
