I love reviewing books! (And I don't know what to put here yet because I am just trying the site out!)

Fairy Blues (Songs of Magic, #2)

Fairy Blues - J.L. Bryan You can read all of my reviews at Alluring Reads.From The Depressed Cypresses to the hungry, giant jack-o-lanterns, Fairy Blues steps up the creativity and continues a great series. The follow up to Fairy Metal Thunder gives us a more in depth look at the enchanting Faerie world and fleshes out the great characters that I have come to love. The imagination that went into writing these novels absolutely stuns me. J.L. Bryan has created a world that isn't choppy or seems misplaced, it feels real and like I could go visit this enchanted land if I so wished (which I do!)What I really enjoyed about Fairy Blues was seeing more about Erin and her home life and also being hinted at a bloodline that could prove pretty interesting. We get to see how things are for her at home, and get to be in her head for a while. Jason really stood out in this one, he has come from the perpetually nervous boy that we met in the first book to a stronger character who puts his neck out for Erin. I'm left to wonder when Erin will open her eyes and see that Zach is an idiot and she needs to be with Jason, hopefully soon! I wasn't expecting the twist we receive at the end, and was so suprised, I can't wait to see how that plays out. The best part of Fairy Blues was our forays into the Faerie world where we learned about the scenery and the characters more in depth. The Depressed Cypresses were awesome and the enchanted pumpkin patch, and oh, there is just so much to love about the Otherworld. It seems as though everything has a life inside of it and you never know what's coming. We didn't get to learn too much about the Queen, which I had hoped for but we definitely got our fill of Mrs. Dullahan. The troupe of fairy musicians heads into the hauntlands and we really get to know them. My favorite is Skezg the not so tough ogre, he had me laughing out loud. There is alot more to this story and I can't wait to find out what comes next. This is of course one that I will be recommending to anyone looking for an Alluring Read.
