A quite different fairy tale with a bite to the romance

A Faerie StoryA Faerie Story by Barbara Elsborg

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

That was different and nothing at all like what I was expecting – and in a completely brilliant way.

What I’d been expecting was a Christmas-themed MMM romance with a sweet ending. What I actually got was an amazingly complex, beautifully developed world in which Faeries are real and where three men find happiness after fighting hard for it.

On the way there was magic, there were dastardly deeds, there were acts of heroism, a cute kid and dog, a bit of a creepy Westworld-style village in the Scottish Highlands and secrets galore.

Each of the three main characters was unique, with their own faults and flaws and I liked each of them for different reasons, but Aiden was my favourite. A soul burdened with a hard life but who had never given up hope.

This book isn’t your typical Christmas romance but it’s a wonderful story of love all the same and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

SPOILER NOTE:

There should be trigger warnings imho, as this book contains some serious subjects including an incident of domestic violence (short but on page).
