Ибо так возлюбил Бог мир, что отдал Сына Своего Единородного, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел хизнь вечную.

Review: An Echo of the Fae by Jenelle L Schmidt

Guys, I'm so pumped for this post. Having to wait almost two months to rave about something this good is killer. The first thing that caught my eye in An Echo of the Fae was the descriptive language. The craft of the writing (Which I normally try not to analyze) was perfect. Jenelle painted this splendid picture in my head. I can't even describe how much I loved the style. And then the story... I'll admit, the prologue had me a tiny bit nervous because the narration switched with chapter one and I was afraid it would switch back. Normally, I enjoy a good multi-POV, but with this one I was going to scream if I was forced to leave Echo's POV. (Thankfully, I wasn't!) There was so much that went into worldbuilding this. And connections were made in ways that blew my mind. I literally couldn't put this book down. I was completely submerged in the world there. Every character had my attention, and small things became significant things like bread crumbs you didn't know were there. And with just a slight twist of Rapunzel, how much cooler can you get? Gorgeous cover, amazing characters (although the selkies part took some getting used to... it was a little weird but totally worked), great plot, and beautiful wording, this book deserves five bright shining stars. The only thing that still gets me is (Without spoilers) how in this world did the parents explain the ending to the villagers?

I received an ARC of this book from the author, but the gushing is 100% honest from me.


  1. Awww, thank you so much for this lovely review, Erica!!! (hmmm... good question about the end... there might need to be some sort of sequel....)
