The war between humanity and Faerie devastated both sides. Or so 15-year-old Liza has been told. Nothing has been seen or heard from Faerie since, and Liza’s world bears the scars of its encounter with magic. Trees move with sinister intention, and the town Liza calls home is surrounded by a forest that threatens to harm all those who wander into it. Then Liza discovers she has the Faerie ability to see—into the past, into the future—and she has no choice but to flee her town. Liza’s quest will take her into Faerie and back again, and what she finds along the way may be the key to healing both worlds.
Janni Lee Simner’s first novel for young adults is a dark fairy-tale twist on apocalyptic fiction—as familiar as a nightmare, yet altogether unique.
Liza was a push forward type of girl. In a world that was devastated and destroyed Between humans and faeries. The idea of even possibly having any type of magic powers marks you a cast out. Liza new born sister was born with the possibility of having powers and she was cast out. This tragic event set a pace for this book. It was dark and powerful. It also gave you hope as to what could be. Liza really made this book. Her ability to step through the fire hoops made the book stand out. This is the first book of Janni Lee Simner I have read. What a great read. This is not like any other book I have read. Bones of Faerie is a worth the time and the money read.
