    Cute and light although it's quite frustrating to read at some point because of the kept feelings. But i really hope there's more of this. Cil and Renee! ❤️

    A fun storyI like modern twists on high fantasy and "Faerie Queen" is a nice one. Plenty of the familiar, but enough differences to suggest these fantasy races are there own existence and the ones in our stories are a reflection of them. Add in a bit of sweet yuri mutual unrequited love, which is, of course, not unrequited at all, and it makes for a wonderful story that is hard to put down.

    Faerie Queen by Jennie TaylorRating: 4.5 starsOkay, I don't know where to begin. This book was awesome! It was fun, cute and wonderful.The story is about a girl Renee, who is in love with her best friend Cecilia. Cecilia happens to be a Faerie princess who has to choose a prince to marry. But since she doesn't want to marry then, she takes Renee with her to the Faerie world an tells them she's her choice in hopes that it would deter the King from asking her to marry someone and she would get time to go back to high school. But the plan fails and they are both stuck in the land. The story is about how they get out of the mess an the struggles of Renee trying to confess her love to Cecilia.Now, to say what I thought about the story, i'll say it in parts:Cover: I loved the cover, I always love the hand drawn like covers. And this one captures Renee and Cecilia rather well. It's a pretty one.Plot: The plot was well written. I liked how they kept getting into one trouble after another and all the mess and how they got out of it. The struggles of Renee seemed real and not forced. The characters were believable. I did find some places needed to be explained better , but overall I loved it.Writing: The writing was beautiful. A lot of books I read usually makes me wonder what is going on but this one didn't give me any questions. It was truly enjoyable. But I did feel like the story could have been fleshed out a bit more. Maybe that's just cause I like the story and wanted more of it.Characters: So, this was he first LGBTQA genre novel I read, because I hadn't come across any before. So, I didn't know what to expect in it. I just adored how Renee loves Cecilia and how she struggles with it. It was awesome. And the King was so awesome. I like him so much I wished there was more of him in the book. Overall they were realistic an awesome.Why I didn't give it five stars: OK, so this book was wonderful and I would have given it five stars but there were a few places I felt could be written more. Like I wish there was more of the book in the book. And I don't know if there is a sequel but I hope there is. There is a lot here that could be made into a sequel.Anyway, I loved the book and thought it was beautiful.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.The first thing that I noticed in Faerie Queen was how the faerie world was a separate world than the human world. The faerie world did not have the "Middle Earth" feel that a lot of books in the fantasy genre have. I thought this added a unique quality to the story, and thought that discussing how challenging it was for Renee to perform simple tasks in the faerie world (like opening a door) added realism to the story.The second thing that I liked was that the author really connected with the mid - to older- teens in how she presented the internal struggle with self-esteem and inner-confidence that most girls in this age group go through. I found myself empathizing more with Renee than Cecilia, but I am sure that there are plenty of girls out there who will empathize with Cecilia.I enjoyed the combination of lightheartedness and seriousness as the protagonists deal with "normal teenage" issues along with darker "grown-up" issues. I think the author created a good balance of the two, which prevented it from being too dark without adding too much levity when addressing the issues that the protagonists faced.Finally, I enjoyed how the author addressed the issue of sexuality. I was happy to see that Renee's family accepted her sexuality; without implying that it was "unusual" or "aberrant." I know that in reality that this is not always the case, but it was nice to see it addressed in such a positive and sensitive manner.If my niece was not a toddler and could actually read, I would not only be comfortable with her reading this book, but I would buy it for her. The author kept the romance from being "hot and heavy" without coming across as prudish, and did a great job of addressing the idea of acceptance using a mix of realistic characters in a fantasy setting.

    “Faerie Queen” is the story of two teenage girls, Renee, a human, and Cecilia, her best friend and a faerie princess. It traces the trials of Renee as she follows Cecilia to a land filled with mythical/fairytale creatures that aren’t quite what she would imagine. The author puts in the time to do world-building with interesting twists on genre favorites such as faeries, elves, and orcs. The faerie kingdom, in particular, is expanded through the details of operating as a human in this foreign environment. Renee has a lot to adapt to. Reading about her navigating just the basics of life gave a load of information on daily life in Sheaubairnia that was fascinating. The young protagonist struggles with her own emotional development (mainly the attraction to her best friend) in a completely believable teenage fashion while still addressing the various threats aimed at the royal faerie family. The romantic subplot propels the story along without overwhelming the fantasy elements. It was a good balance. I liked this book and hope there will be more in this world. It is a stand alone story but easily could move into a series. The environment the author created could allow for expansion in many different directions and I’d love to see some of the other kingdoms fleshed out more in other stories, especially the merfolk. Overall, a great read.

    I really enjoyed this YA lesbian romance. The author does a great job of creating a bridge that helps you suspend belief and take the journey from normal real world to a realm where there truly is magic. She does so while including a wonderful teanage first and forever love scenario. I would love to see a epilogue or sequel. I dont want to provide any spoilers so I will just say as a thirty something adult who remembers that age well, this was a fun read that took me from happy to sad, it frustrated me to the poiny of almost angry and took me back to happy. Any book that makes you feel invested in the characters outcome is well worth it. I was not paid for this review but did offer to write one since I was granted permission to be a beta reader and I throughly enjoyed the book. ( Have since re read it!) I recomend checking out this Authors other books too. Becca being my Favorite!

    This book was very odd in many positive ways, it teases you into a curious mood but keeps going on about how hard expressing a feeling can be. I did leave gaps of time between each chapter as I found some parts of the story too teasing and a bit frustrating but halfway through it got me excitingly interested. As I finished the story, I was glad that I did because it thought me a thing or two about pre judging other people and that you should be yourself no matter how hard the crowd or yourself try to hide your true personality and feelings. this book changed me so I would definitely recommend.

    thought this was a very cute faerie story. I personally like any book that includes tales or faeries both light or dark. This story was a light story based on two best friends and the introduction of life in another world. I like how they both were best friends and decided it could be more. I also like that this store was short and sweet not too long in explaining everydetail for pages on end as some storied do. If you want a cute story that reaches out to ya readers,you will enjoy this one.
