Description - Bones Of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner

The war between humanity and Faerie devastated both sides. Or so fifteen-year-old Liza has been told. Nothing has been seen or heard from Faerie since, and Liza s world bears the scars of its encounter with magic. Corn resists being harvested; dandelions have thorns. Trees move with sinister intention, and the town Liza calls home is surrounded by a forest that threatens to harm all those who wander into it. Still, Liza feels safe. Her father is strong and has protected their town by laying down strict rules. Among them- any trace of magic must be destroyed, no matter where it is found. Then Liza s sister is born with faerie-pale hair, clear as glass, and Liza s father leaves the baby on a hillside to die. When her mother disappears into the forest and Liza herself discovers she has the Faerie ability to see - into the past, into the future - she has no choice but to flee. Liza s quest will take her into Faerie and back again, and what she finds along the way may be the key to healing both worlds.

Book Review: Bones Of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner - Reviewed by (18 Jul 2011)

The War changed the world, afterwards people had to learn to live without technology, had to learn to live on only what they could grow, make or scavenge from what survived from Before. Afterwards the danger was not only from strangers, trees or stones but from themselves and the new born among them. The War with the Faeries left its mark on the world; as well as its magic.

Liza knew the rules, knew what fate awaited those who were touched by magic, saw for herself what happen to her sister, all for being born with faerie-pale hair. So when she herself starts to display signs of magic she flees from home rather then face a heartless death, but she doesn't leave alone. Liza is curtain she can find the answers she needs if she can just find her mother, but what if her mother does not want to be found?

Bones of Faerie is one of the most imaginative and rich stories of faeries and magic. A brilliant new series that seamlessly blends fairy-tales with science fiction creating a world that is tangible, wondrous and strangely attainable. Such a momentous journey undertaken for such a small book, but one you absolutely don't want to miss.
