"When sixteen-year-old Jensen Meadows finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient faerie war, she soon learns that faeries aren't made of sparkly goodness. They're vicious. And worse, they're after her. With the help of Liam Casey, she delves into their world to find her missing sister and begins to suspect that her whole life has been nothing more than a faerie tale.

But maybe some truths should never be revealed..."

When I started this book I was immediately blown away. I really loved getting into the feel of the story and seeing Jensen's character. One thing I enjoy in a book is where a character is lost. That is Jensen. When Jensen figures out that there is more to her, she has no idea who she is. I loved that she demanded answers and sometimes thought that she is crazy. She made me laugh and her sarcasticness made me snicker!

I also very much adored the story line. While Jensen has been lied to her entire life, there is a war brewing. Jensen has come to some untimely problems that all seemed to be brewing around her. The way the story flowed, impacted a whole lot of the story. Every thing was set at a right pace that made the story so much more. The writing is easily flowed and nicely written. In the smallest sentences, you find so much happening that you the reader are dervouring this book quickly.

My only gripe is course it's small. I was so hooked onto the story that I wanted to read more on the happenings of Jensen. The love interest for me, just didn't cut it. I realize it was short story but still I wanted more between the characters.

This is great novella that has a great impact while reading. Your heart is racing and your eyes fly across the pages as you read Jensen's story. Will there be more? I hope so! This is a great short, summer read that you don't want to miss!

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I so so loved this one! My only complaint was that it was too short! I agree that I would of loved more between the characters!

  2. Oh I wish I had time to have read this one. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Don't you love it when a book is too short rather than too long? lol

  3. Oh almost forgot... I received a note from Cinder and Ella's publicity and they have sent the book. Let me know if/when you get it. Don't forget to check Spam! :) Sorry to give you the note here, but it seems my e-mail keeps going to spam and I wanted you to see it.

  4. This sounds like a cute read! I hadn't heard of it before your review!

    BTW, I answered your question from earlier today on my blog, but short answer, yes, The Raising has been released in the US too! :)

  5. This is why I struggle with short stories. I'm always going to want more romance. Still, I'm glad to know it had a great impact on you. Thanks for the review, Savy.

  6. This sounds like one you never want to end. I'm intrigued. Fab review :)

  7. I've never heard of this, but Jensen sounds like such a great character. Awesome thoughtful review, Savy! :)

  8. I like the cover. Kind of creepy. Too bad it was so short. Especially if the characters made you laugh and it flowed so smoothly. I don't like really short books.
