Book Review: The Faire Folk Trilogy by Gillian Summers

The Faire Folk Trilogy by Gillian Summers is another young adult series.  The main character, Keelie Heartwood, is a high school girl who is sent to live with her father after her mother dies.  Once she moves in with her father, she discovers all sorts of things that are not quite like what she thought she knew.

Yeah.  This is definitely a young adult book.  I would say middle school age.  Now, don’t get me wrong.  It was a fun book to read from that perspective, but don’t expect too much out of it.  The plot line is pretty simple and predictable.  You can pretty much go into the trilogy knowing what happens.  The characters are not that imaginative, either, but they are all, for the most part, fun to read. 

But the magic in the books is that they are set in modern day America.  Summers just adds the element fairy magic to everyday life.  Most of us dream of things like that as kids.  I would put this trilogy on my list as one of those guilty pleasures – not a necessity but fun none the less.
