Sorry, it's been awhile and I will tell you why...
It took me awhile to figure out what I was reading next. Of course I have been flooded with suggestions.
I just wasn't in the mood. I wanted a specific type of book. I actually got to read an excerpt from The Dream Thieves. Which got me in the mood for Maggie once again, so here I am to talk about Maggie Stiefvater's Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception.
So for starters let me say a few things, her writing style follows the same as it does in The Wolves of Mercy Falls series and in The Raven Cycle series. Which is cool to me since I really like her writing style and it's not all over the place.
I would like to do an experiment. Give a person 3 books, 2 by the same author and one by a different author and see if they could tell which books were by the same author. I am sure research has been done on the subject before and it's probably all over the web whether or not it is good or bad, but I like it and this is about my opinions.
Also, this book reminds me of Impossible by Nancy Werlin. Impossible is also about music and old song lyrics and elves/ faeries. It's a good book, if you read Lament and like it you will like Impossible, or vice versa.
Anywho, back to the point.Lament is about a girl who has a chance encounter with a boy (Luke Dillion). She figures out pretty quickly that there is more going on with him than meets the eye.
Here is a quote in case you are not intrigued enough already:
“Don't tell me that. I've lived in hell for the past thousand years. I spent a thousand years wishing I'd never been born. She's the only thing that's made my life worth living and if that's all I get, a few months with her- a few days, it's more than I've ever hoped for. Do you really think God would forgive me for the blood on my hands, even if my soul was free? I'm going to hell no matter what happens. Let me have my pathetic hopeless love while I can. Just- let me pretend it will turn out alright.” ― Maggie Stiefvater, Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception
Oh Luke, how could anyone not fall in love with you?
Anyways, it's a very good read, I am giving it 5 Stars.
