Things Not Seen - Andrew Clements

Things Not Seen
Author: Andrew Clements
A video review by: Michael

Lament - Maggie Stiefvater

Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Reviewer: Kurtis
Being a musician, I understand that it is music that brings the world to life. In Lament, by Maggie Stiefvater, ours is not the only world it brings to life. Deirdre is a gifted harp player who meets an irresistibly charming boy named Luke Dillon, who is a faerie queen's captive assasain. She then discovers she can see faeries and they LOVE good music. But Deirde finds herself in a pickle when the faerie queen wants her dead. I admit I had no interest at first in the book, but when I started to read it I had a whole different opinion on what faeries were. Maggie delivers a mysteriously haunting love story through the world of vicious, greedy, and powerful creatures. You can never guess how things might turn around. Its like nothing I've ever read before.

Can't wait until October for the sequel!
