Bones of Faerie: Book 1 (The Bones of Faerie Trilogy)

Bones of Faerie - Janni Lee Simner Both the human and Faerie world has been locked in a war. After the war ended, both sides were devastated. Liza, a fifteen year old has grown up in a small human community - one that is fearful of anything suspected with magic. When her sister was born with translucent hair and signs that marked her as magic, she watched as her father coldly left her newborn sister to die out in nature. After that, her mother suddenly disappears and her father does not seem concerned. When Liza gets signs that magic is developing in her, she sets out to leave everything she ever known to protect her town and find her missing mother. Her quest will question everything she has grown up in and take her in and out of the Faerie world.This post-apocalypse book was a quick read. Sat down and read it in one setting. I’m definitely a fan of faerie books and this one has an interesting take on faeries. A good story but I felt it was sparse. I wanted to know more about the characters, the war and the Faerie world. It felt like the story just skimmed the surface and did not dive deeper into any of those aspects. I did like Liza and the characters she meets along her quest - they were a bit two-dimensional but fun to read about and it was great trying to unravel the mystery behind Liza’s mother.
