3.5 - ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

What would you do if all you knew abandoned you?

Let me begin by saying that Birth of the Fae is a truly unique book. It's uniqueness stems the lush world-building.

The experience was similar to witnessing an artist turn a blank canvas into a master piece.

The imagery it presented managed to keep me captivated despite the weak existence of a plot, if you're a fan of world-building do not let that fact deter you from reading this.

As the title hints at, the story revolves around Angels

Birth of the fae is such a mesmerizing and fairytale-like read. The writing is descriptive and eloquent. In the beginning of the novel I could really feel the angels anguish and betrayal as they are cast out of heaven. It is such an emotional read, I could clearly picture every scene in my mind and I suffered alongside Xi and Jarvok as they wept.

"No one knew the nature of this star streaking in the sky, but they felt the anguish. The ache and determination were obvious. The yearning to return ho

As some big publishers once remarked, a good title is the title of a successful book, Birth of the Fae: Locked Out of Heaven brought me to my knees with the spectacular package which the author sent my way, magical and apt. @birthofthefae_novel

Birth Of The Fae was an, overall, gorgeous and thought provoking fantasy, with it's own original concept of fairy realms.

I found myself entranced by the explanations and history of the characters and thoroughly enjoyed the depiction of their world. The world building was done very well and the characters hold a lot of promise for further development as the story will inevitably be continued. I love this about book series and it always makes me excited to continue the adventure and to see how th

What would happen if God’s Angel’s were locked out of heaven and even worse they had no idea why. Well in this novel we get a peek at what it might look like if gods most important angels lose their wings are no longer allowed back through the gates of Heaven and can not even get god to explain why.

Angels are not given names in heaven and so must find a new way to survive and exist on earth. So they take on names and that is when we meet Xi who becomes Queen Aurora, which is the queen of the daw

Thank you Danielle for sending me this review copy in exchange for a honest review.

In the beginning I struggled with the book but my thoughts were a bit chaotic before I even started it so that might’ve been the reason. It became easier for me to follow the story and the writing improved as I continued to read. I’m glad that I did because the character development is really interesting to read.

Birth of the Fae basically tells the story of how the fae came to be. It is a very informative book, and I absolutely loved the writing style! Although it is a rather thin novel, it was quite hard for me to get through, since it was so informative. I must admit that was definitely a downside for me.

Author Danielle Orsino on her first series of Birth of Fae- Locked out of Heaven narrates a gripping tale of a dark yet a fantasy world of virtue and power. The book is so well written that it takes you on a imaginary world of fantasy and magic. TBH, it took me a while to come out of the world of angels after I finished reading the book. Everyone knows that a lot is expected from a debut author, and I feel Danielle as a debut writer passed the test. The plot line is intriguing and each of the ch ...more

Genre: Fantasy
Rating: 3.2 out of 5

I was intrigued by the synopsis of this novel. The fae were originally angels? I haven’t read that before, so I was interested to read this. However, I found the execution to be a bit erratic. There’s frequently no sense of time passing in the novel, yet in reality, thousands of years have passed. That’s jarring for the reader. To make that more pronounced, we’re thousands of years in the past-

When Lucifer was cast out of heaven, several other angels were locked out too. They may have fought in the war or were simply doing what they were created for but they find themselves locked out all the same. They try to get an answer from God but he refuses to reply.

Hurt and betrayed about all they can do is to continue on. Some follow Queen Aurora, a former Virtue Angel, who creates the Court of the Light Fae. King Jarvok, a former Power Brigade Angel has other ideas on how to run the Court o

BIRTH OF THE FAE is a unique book in the sense that the reader is experiencing a beginning of sorts. We are entering into a world that is starting its journey to expand and develop. It is a gift that Orsino has given us.
