Into the Wildewood (Faire Folk, Book 2)

After squelching an evil plot by a rotten fairy, Keelie Heartwood is ready for fun at the upcoming Wildewood Renaissance Faire. Getting to know her elf dad has been great, but camping out in his homemade RV while acting out the 16th century isn't so fab. Keelie prefers hot showers and wearing a watch, thankyouverymuch. And a cool new cell phone would be nice, too.
But with fairies turning up in the oddest places, an unfortunate misunderstanding about a credit card bill, and that nasty, stuck-up elf-girl, Elia, Keelie's plans to have a good time are all but ruined. So far, life as an elf isn't all that enchanting.

And then the unicorn shows up.


Don't miss the first book in the Faire Folk Trilogy, The Tree Shepherd's Daughter:

"One of those remarkable tales in which the reader becomes completely immersed . . . [It] will have readers eagerly anticipating books two and three in this promising trilogy."

I still like the premise and I think many of the characters are very intriguing. The plot is great, too. It moved along well. Good action. It did keep me up reading late into the night.

Again this author chose to use curse words rather than intelligent descriptions of feelings/situations/expression. We are not impressed at all by the appearance of ""ass," "bullshit," "badass," "holy shit," "bitchy,"and the mention of "the 'F' word." We got these books in the youth section (not t... ...more

Despite the fact that the protagonist actually was a lot less whiny than in the first book, I think I enjoyed that one better than this sequel. It was still a wonderful read. I really enjoy the world of the fairs that Keelie lives in and was glad to get back into it. However, there were some thin... ...more
