Review of A Faerie Wedding
I'll be completely honest and say that I am firmly running out of things to say about Steph and her books and I also completely understand that in order to understand this novella, you'll probably need to read all the other books first but I could 100% recommend them to anyone who loves Fantasy to begin with, amazing, diverse characters and a whole mix of emotions rolled into one book. They are the perfect YA books for someone who may want to ease themselves into Fantasy novels or for younger adults (although keep in mind this one is a New Adult novella and does contain adult language and scenes! Just a heads up!)
Just as with the others, Steph's talent and voice shines through in this novella and if I didn't know what book I was reading, there'd be absolutely no doubt that it was hers. As with all her books, the strong YA presence in these stories is palpable. The Star Child series just keeps getting better and better and when you think it's over and nothing else could possibly happen to these characters you've come to know and love, Steph hits you with something else. None of her books feel "over-done" like she should have stopped the story ages ago. Each novel and novella has an important place in this magnificent story.
I loved Gabe just as much as always in this book - he really doesn't change and I've always said I loved his wit, his humour and his ability to make everything seem that little bit more normal in an otherwise very abnormal world. He's that character you can really relate to - the most real. Wherever Steph goes next, either with this series or an entirely new one, I just know it's going to be amazing. She's a wonderful storyteller which although is directed at Young Adults, could appeal to a much wider audience. Her writing is effortless and engaging and she is exceptionally talented. I have always and will always admire Steph's work and A Faerie Wedding was no exception.
Well done Steph, for knocking my socks off once again.
