Lament The Faerie Queen's Deception





Loved this book. I was tempted to read it through dinner at my future in-laws house, but I resisted! At least until after dinner...

Deidre is a harp player and when she is at a competition over the summer, she finds a gorgeous young man named Luke talking her into playing a duet with him. He is a little more than he seems at first and she's a smart girl, picking up on that quickly. Her grandmother also is weary of him, ominously giving her an old iron ring and telling Luke to stay away from her.

Deidre can't help her feelings and discovers that she has her own abnormalities - she can see into the minds of others and she is starting to have serious problems sleeping at night. What she finds is that she still loves Luke and instead of faltering away from the problems arising constantly, she seeks to help him and herself in the process.

Faeries are real and they're definitely not all nice.

I just loved the tempo of this book - it pulled you in and kept the action rolling throughout the whole book. Definitely the type of book you try your best to read in one sitting.

  2. I'm only just discovering Maggie Steifvater with her new book, Shiver. She's such a friendly and likeable person as well, that I've been very interested in reading her other books. Thanks for the great review...going to put it on hold!

  19. Nice review! I didn't know that Deidre was a harp player and that she met Luke in that sort of setting... so I learned something new! (and I have more curiosity to read this book!) :D

  23. So glad you liked Lament :) and good call for not reading it through dinner at your future in-laws house LOL

    I did want with all my might to read this in one sitting, which I almost accomplished and would've accomplished if my sister didn't keep on coming in to my room to do things with me and then later declare me a recluse at my continual refusal. However I lamented (no pun intended ;) and put the book down to go have some fun with her LOL family first yes?
