A Twist of Fae
El Holly, author
I know where my birth parents are. And no, I haven't met them yet. Because if I want to, I'm going to have to save them first. ***** With the help of her friends Quince, Cam, and Maggie, Evelyn “Eevee” Acker was finally ready to meet her birth parents, who, she’s recently discovered, are fae. That should be the end of the story. But Eevee doesn’t find what she’s looking for. Instead, she has a choice to make: save her birth parents, who she's never met, and put herself and her loved ones in danger? Or leave her birth parents to their fate, accepting she’ll never have the answers she’s been searching for her whole life? There are some in Elfaeme who may force her to choose.
Plot/Idea: 9 out of 10
Originality: 7 out of 10
Prose: 10 out of 10
Character/Execution: 7 out of 10
Overall: 8.25 out of 10

Assessment:

Plot/Idea: The concept of a fae being raised by humans is both interesting and creative. Eevee’s challenges and concerns feel completely organic to her personality, though the current ending of the story comes across as somewhat rushed and didactic.

Prose: The inviting narration style is balanced and well-suited to the story, allowing readers to readily follow along with Eevee's adventures.

Originality: The story will leave readers who are searching for their identity perhaps a little more prepared to face challenges of their own. The fae realm here is markedly different from the parallel world.

Character Development/Execution: Throughout the story, Eevee does her best to truly accept herself for who she is. This exploration of identity unfolds slowly, with various details that keep the reader entertained, but the pace suddenly increases toward the end. Though the focus is on Eevee’s challenges, the reader may crave more details about other important characters as well.

BookView Review

Filled with atmospheric details and memorable characters, Holly’s immersive second installment in the Finding Fae Trilogy continues Evelyn’s story as she tries to grapple with a new responsibility thrown her way...

The engrossing narrative is full of shocking revelations and unexpected twists as all the disparate plot threads come together, creating a highly engrossing story that builds toward a surprising cliffhanger.

Readers will eagerly wait for the final volume in the trilogy. Not the one to be missed.

The Prairies Book Review

Deliciously captivating and wholly enthralling…

Evocative prose, atmospheric detail, and superbly rendered characters elevate this engrossing second volume in the Finding Fae Trilogy from Holly...

Eevee and Quince make for a worthy pair of protagonists, and a strong cast of supporting characters—including a fae cat, endearing pair of fae twins, and Eevee’s loyal human friends—rounds out this tale rooted in themes of familial bonds, friendship, identity, responsibility, and duty.

A deft blend of a coming-of-age tale and fairy-tale quest.
