At times i thought I mistakenly started over on a page, because whole chunks of story are rehashed with very little variation.

The family has young children and a mostly grown daughter who is, of course, attractive. When adding it to Goodreads I accidentally marked it as read, which led to a comment from a friend who shares my passion for Faerie.

Faerie Tale by Raymond E. Feist

Mixing the devilishness of fairies with faeri cheeky splendour. Want to Read saving…. What’s the Name o I had a difficult time closing it to go to sleep at night. He has written way better stuff. Aug 30, Peter Chandler rated it it was ok.

I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone who really loves urban or mythic fantasy.


As a fan of the fae, I’d say he does a great job of creating a creepy world that is vivid, melancholic, and disturbing. This is the only stand alone novel that Feist has written.

At one point the daughter is raped by Try it as a bedtime story. Some of the images stayed with me for years. This exchange prompted me to start reading rather than just add to my very long TBR list. Those who love Celtic myth and Shakespeare will recognize magical elements of The Fool, elf-shot, Trooping Faeires, and more. Feist doesn’t exactly put a new “spin” on faeries, but his descriptions of them are marvelously complex.

Mar 06, Damon rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I love everything about this that does not make it a fantasy. I reread it as an adult not that long ago and it is still really creepy. Instead of some demented killer in the woods, there are wonderful, terrifying, fantastic creatures from legend.

The story gets a little dark in places, but is otherwise a taerie captivating read that blends real-life and faerie myth perfectly. For me, the nice mix of characters in the family contributed to the plot, but Sean and Patrick are the stars.

It is fantasy; it is horror. I read this book back in one weekend back in the it’s real dark horror one of most creepy stories of its time if want a one of horror of outstanding performance in a book this is not just good it is fantastic. I contented myself with looking it up on Goodreads and I saw the alternate cover linked to this review. I recommend you avoid this one.

While I don’t dispute that, I can say that I find Feist’s work eminently more accessible, and therefor more enjoyable than a trip to Middle Earth.
