The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones Review

Title: The Faerie Path
Author: Frewin Jones
Age Group: Teen/Young Adult
Genre: Fantasy
Series: The Faerie Path, book one
Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
The bottom line: The Faerie Path is an entertaining novel for fans of fantasy and of faeries, though at times I was a little confused.

Anita Palmer, a normal British girl with an ordinary life, discovers on her sixteenth birthday that she is Tania, the seventh daughter of Lord Oberon and Lady Titania, and she has been lost from them and her sisters for the past five hundred years. Once learning of her true origins, Tania finds herself trying to remember her past--for only she can save Faerie.

What I liked:
-Anita/Tania and her constant cheekiness and sass, as well as the way she grew in the novel, able to find courage
-Edric/Evan
-Tania's six sisters, all different and all kind and sweet to their long lost sister
-Oberon
-The villains of the novel
-The open ending that guarantees a sequel

What I didn't like:
-The way Anita is swept into the world of Fae and she isn't able to go back to the Mortal World
-The slightly confusing way the magic works in the novel--I would've liked it explained a little bit better

Overall, this novel was great for me and I'm looking forward to reading more about Tania's journey--Any fans of Julie Kawaga, Lesley Livingston, and Melissa Marr should enjoy this, although the faeries in this series are slightly less sinister and frightening.
