Lament by Maggie Stiefvater
Book DescriptionSixteen-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. "Lament" is a dark faerie fantasy that features authentic Celtic faerie lore, plus cover art and interior illustrations by acclaimed faerie artist Julia Jeffrey.

Book Review: Lament by Maggie Stiefvater - Reviewed by Rebecca M (10 Sep 2010)
Before purchasing this book I wondered what the story would be about, especially given the fact that it was about faeries! In parts, this is a love-story, but it's also about the mystical faeries. These aren't the cute, sweet things that we imagined in childhood, instead they are rather more scary.
Stiefvater has written a really interesting story and you can see that the book is left open for the following novels in the series. The characters are well developed, enabling you to escape into the world of the story and feel what the characters are going through. Unfortunately, at times, the story seems to skip over some of the deeper moments, while lingering on some of the more "teenage" elements.
