Title: Lamment the feary queen’s deception
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
category: Faeries, young adult
Sixteen-year-old Deirdre Monaghan is a painfully shy but prodigiously gifted musician. She’s about to find out she’s also a cloverhand—one who can see faeries. Deirdre finds herself infatuated with a mysterious boy who enters her ordinary suburban life, seemingly out of thin air. Trouble is, the enigmatic and gorgeous Luke turns out to be a gallowglass—a soulless faerie assassin. An equally hunky—and equally dangerous—dark faerie soldier named Aodhan is also stalking Deirdre. Sworn enemies, Luke and Aodhan each have a deadly assignment from the Faerie Queen. Namely, kill Deirdre before her music captures the attention of the Fae and threatens the Queen’s sovereignty. Caught in the crossfire with Deirdre is James, her wisecracking but loyal best friend. Deirdre had been wishing her life weren’t so dull, but getting trapped in the middle of a centuries-old faerie war isn’t exactly what she had in mind . .

The view of a book addict:
First of al let met tell you, I just love everything Maggie writes so when I started reading this book I had a feeling I would really love it. She didn’t dissapoint me, because I did love the story.
I don’t read many fearie books to be honest, so I don’t have much to compare it to. But what I loved about this book is that it took place in this world the whole time. Deidre never had to travel to the world of the fearies in this book.
Of course the whole love story between Deidre and Luke is something we’ve read before but that dind’t bother me at all. I really liked their story.
The verdict of a book addict:
I absolutely loved this book! And I’m curious about the second book.
