Download PDF Bones of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner and published by . This book was released on 2020-08-06 with total page 290 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A dark fairy-tale twist on apocalyptic fiction-as familiar as a nightmare, yet altogether unique.The war between humanity and Faerie devastated both sides. Or so fifteen-year-old Liza has been told. Nothing has been seen or heard from Faerie since, and Liza's world bears the scars of its encounter with magic. Corn resists being harvested; dandelions have thorns. Trees move with sinister intention, and the town Liza calls home is surrounded by a forest that threatens to harm all those who wander into it. Still Liza feels safe. Her father is strong and has protected their town by laying down strict rules. Among them: Any trace of magic must be destroyed, no matter where it is found.Then Liza's sister is born with faerie-pale hair, clear as glass, and Liza's father leaves the baby on a hillside to die. When her mother disappears into the forest and Liza herself discovers she has the faerie ability to see-into the past, into the future-she has no choice but to flee. Liza's quest will take her into Faerie and back again, and what she finds along the way may be the key to healing both worlds.=-=-=-=-=-=ExcerptI had a sister once.She was a beautiful baby, eyes silver as moonlight off the river at night. From the hour of her birth she was long-limbed and graceful, faerie-pale hair clear as glass from Before, so pale you could almost see through to the soft skin beneath.My father was a sensible man. He set her out on the hillside that very night, though my mother wept and even old Jayce argued against it. "If the faerie folk want her, let them take her," Father said. "If not the fault's theirs for not claiming one of their own." He left my sister, and he never looked back.I did. I crept out before dawn to see whether the faeries had really come. They hadn't, but some wild creature had. One glance was all I could take. I turned and ran for home, telling no one where I'd been.We were lucky that time, I knew. I'd heard tales of a woman who bore a child with a voice high and sweet as a bird's song-and with the sharp claws to match. No one questioned that baby's father when he set the child out to die, far from our town, far from where his wife lay dying, her insides torn and bleeding.Magic was never meant for our world, Father said, and of course I'd agreed, though the War had ended and the faerie folk returned to their own places before I was born. If only they'd never stirred from those places-but it was no use thinking that way.Besides, I'd heard often enough that our town did better than most. We knew the rules. Don't touch any stone that glows with faerie light, or that light will burn you fiercer than any fire. Don't venture out alone into the dark, or the darkness will swallow you whole. And cast out the magic born among you, before it can turn on its parents.Towns had died for not understanding that much. My father was a sensible man.But the memory of my sister's bones, cracked and bloody in the moonlight, haunts me still.=-=-=-=-=-=Reviews"Pure, stunning, it is impossible to put down or forget." -Jane Yolen"Think of it as a cross between a Neil Gaiman fairy tale and apocalytpic fiction." -The Poisoned Pen "The mood is strikingly dark, and questions regarding mankind's tendency toward suspicion and xenophobia will loom large in readers' minds." -Booklist"Simner makes the most of her darkly clever conceit." -San Francisco Chronicle"With its dark, sharply imagined world, this will appeal to readers of Holly Black and Cassandra Clare." -Kirkus"Part post-apocalyptic adventure tale and part folklore, Bones of Faerie is definitely built on familiar ground, until the ground sprouts vines that try to eat you." -Tor.com"A completely original world that you will not be able to leave until you turn the last page." -Justine Magazine"This is a lovely, quiet, sombre book about fear, war, and the possibility of healing." -Fantasy & Science Fiction

Book excerpt: I’m Ivy Lane, and if I never see another faerie again, it’ll be too soon. Twenty years after the faeries came and destroyed the world as we knew it, I use my specialist skills to keep rogue faeries in line and ensure humans and their magically gifted neighbours can coexist (relatively) peacefully. Nobody knows those skills came from the darkest corner of Faerie itself. When a human child disappears, replaced with a faerie changeling, I have to choose between taking the safe road or exposing my own history with the faeries to the seductively dangerous head of the Mage Lords. He’s the exact kind of distraction I don’t need, but it’s work with him or lose my chance to save the victims. It’ll take all my skills to catch the kidnappers and stop Faerie’s dark denizens overrunning the city — but if the faerie lords find out about the magic I stole last time I went into their realm, running won’t save me this time… This boxed set contains the first three books in the Changeling Chronicles series: Faerie Blood, Faerie Magic and Faerie Realm.

The language and linguistic organization of a dozen versions, old and new, of the Little Red Riding Hood story are analyzed using a variety of theoretical approaches, including Critical Discourse Analysis, Conversational Analysis, Functional Grammar and Critical Stylistics, to uncover the contribution of fairy tales to the discourse of gender relations over time.
Download PDF Half Faerie by Heidi Garrett and published by Half-Faerie Publishing. This book was released on 2014-06-30 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “... a mythical tale as appealing as it is impressive.”—Kirkus Reviews A half-faerie without wings, Melia lives as an outcast in the enchanted world. After her mortal father breaks his faerie troth, Melia's faerie mother returns to the Realm of Faerie with her three daughters. Her father is forbidden to join them. Determined to reunite with his beloved wife, he becomes obsessed with harnessing a sinister consciousness dwelling in the Void. Fearful she’s been tainted by his contact with darkness, Melia seeks aid from the Illustrator. The mysterious woman marks the half-faerie's forehead with an unusual emblem meant to draw aid from a distant land. Before help arrives, Melia travels to the mortal world to confront her father. A tragedy ensues and Melia's mother is strangely unforgiving. The punishment she metes out will leave her daughter torn between guilt and ecstasy, challenge the bonds between three sisters, and complicate Melia's relationship with a young green-eyed priest who unexpectedly arrives Faerie. Whimsical and edgy, Daughter of Light is an epic fantasy with an intriguing cosmology and well-developed characters. Readers who have enjoyed Lord of the Rings, Throne of Glass, and the Rain Wilds Chronicles will likely enjoy this series. Praise for the Daughter of Light fantasy trilogy: Isolt’s Enchantment, the beginnings (Free Prequel) I loved the beauty of the world when Vulcan first meets Una, and I especially enjoyed the explanation of Umbra. Isolt’s vengeance was absolutely delicious, and I could recommend this book based solely on that scene.—Erica at Fantasy Book Lane Half Faerie, Book 1 I found myself sharing emotions with several characters and my husband would walk by just shaking his head, he doesn’t understand books and what they can do. I highly recommend this book. I want to thank Heidi Garrett for making my otherwise boring life so exciting with her books, I am loving it, every single minute! Five stars for Half Faerie. —KJ at Kj Reads A Lot Half Mortal, Book 2 The pace picks up quite a bit as the stakes are raised in Half Mortal, the second book in this epic coming of age fantasy trilogy. I can totally understand why the comparison to LoTR has been drawn, as Melia and her cohorts battle numerous foes as they attempt to make things right- in both realms.—Mama Reads, Hazel Reads War & Grace, Book 3 Coming in November 2017!
