Review: Faire Eve – Catherine Stovall
From an early age, Eve has done exactly as her mother has asked of her. Never once has she questioned the why of things. Deep inside, she’s told herself that perhaps her mother has a good reason for giving her such a sheltered life. Reasons, she surmises, she’s not quite sure of.
Trying to make sense of her bleak existence, Eve has spent her days doing everything possible to make her parents happy. Though, she hasn’t stopped herself from questioning the world around her. Out of the corner of her eye, she’s seen things that have made her pause, time and again. Things, she soon realizes, aren’t a part of her imagination.
When an unexpected attack opens her eyes to a world she’s never known, Eve comes to the realization that there’s a lot her mother has never told her. Discovering the fact that she’s a partial fairy soon shatters the fragile world she lives in. It no longer matters that her mother has kept her true origins hidden from her for so long. What matters is that there’s more to her own existence out there. A world she’s intent on truly learning more about.
Unfortunately, doing so is easier said than done. A myriad of threats are intent on keeping her from completing the mission at hand. If she’s to save her beloved Evalon, Eve will need to overcome them all. Deciphering the threats, however, is another matter entirely. To overcome the obstacles cropping up along the way, she’ll need to put her trust in someone else’s hands. The question is, how can she determine as to who is trustworthy and who is not when almost everyone is out for her blood?
Full of delightful twists and turns, Faire Eve immerses us in a world where real-life and make-believe collide. We meet Eve, an unsuspecting, yet resilient, teen determined to make the most of the world she now lives in. She’s headstrong, and a little willful, at times, but she gives as good as she gets. She’s been saddled with quite a few things on her plate, her mother’s secrets included. Never-the-less, she’ll give things her all in the hopes of righting all of the wrongs committed by those she loves.
Catherine has done a great job in building a world that will both captivate and enthrall the reader as he/she dives into the pages of her newest book. I suspect that there might be more to this intriguing book, and look forward to what’s to come. Catherine is definitely an author to keep an eye on.
