Simner's vision of a post-apocalyptic world due to the clash between faerie and mortals is one that rides the border between intriguing and horrifying. PLants have come to life and gone rogue in their quest for human blood, turning the world into a possible death trap and forcing humans to fight to even harvest enough food to eat. Any child or person with a trace of magic in Liza's town is quickly "dealt with," so when our young protagonist begins to have visions she is justifiably horrified. Fleeing her town in the company of a shape-shifting boy (Matthew) has unexpected consequences, as Liza discovers that many people have magical skills and are accepted for their talents in other towns less judgemental than her own. Liza's discoveries seem to be meant to turn the world upside down, since she is able to cross to the Faerie world through the magic of her visions and to bring back a faerie seed and call it into growth. This causes a return of the seasons to the mortal world, and seems to be the first step in restoring balance to both worlds. ( )

Absolutely fantastic. Love, love, love this book and have already recommended it to several people (young and old). I'm not usually into teen apocalyptica, but this was brilliantly done, and I am already looking forward to re-reading it. Anxiously awaiting the email from the library telling me that I can come pick up Faerie Winter. ( )

While a bit predictable, Bones of Faerie establishes a fascinating post-apocalyptic setting in the aftermath of a devastating war against faeries. The book is young adult and deals with heady issues of abuse, survival, and loss, all through the eyes of an easy-to-relate-to heroine. ( )

War between Faerie and the humans devastated both realms. A generation later, teenaged Liza and her town are barely surviving among the wreckage. Liza's father has kept the town alive though ruthless destruction of anything touched by magic, so when Liza starts having visions she knows she has to leave immediately--or be killed by her own father.

I was fascinated by the post-apocalyptic world Liza lives in, where "good" plastic is prized and even a single dandelion is dangerous. The magic seems appropriately powerful and scary. And I loved reading Liza's progression from cringing believer to a purposeful problem-solver. This is a dark book--Liza is abused by her father for years, and her little sister is sacrificed and then comes back as a ghost baby. But it's not unrelievedly dark: Liza has allies against her father and eventually deals with him; her relationship with her ghost baby sister is actually really sweet. ( )

Intense, Brutal and in your face with the darkness!
Originally reviewed @ My Shelf Confessions

Dark and gripping, Bones of Faerie had me captivated from page one! With the opening line: “I had a sister once.” I knew I was likely in for some heartache, and boy was I completely on the mark.

Fifteen year old Liza is a cautious girl, she has grown up under a tyrannical father, who is quick to anger and even faster to turn to violence. He doesn’t spare the rid one bit! The fear and dread Liza feels is palpable! But you can also sense that she seems to think she deserves it, she considers it her shame when she is disciplined, because that is the only thing she knows. I feel like Simner got this so right and true to reality the way the abused can feel like they are in the wrong and that they are deserving of the abuse.

They live in a post apocalyptic time after a war with the Faerie folk. These are hard times now, where the land is dangerous and plants and animals all posses violent magic. I was entranced with the seemingly evil nature of the plants. They wanted to destroy living things, and venturing out into the dark in these times is practically a death sentence.

The pace of Bones of Faerie is very brisk. Liza moves from one crisis to the next basically through the entire book. I felt a lot of sympathy for her in the beginning but then also wanted to slap her a few times for her pig headed-ness. Luckily as she experiences more and learns more of the nature of magic I came to like her more and more. By the end I was fully in her corner.

She has two excellent supporting characters, Matthew of the same age from her village with a secret of his own and Allie, a much younger and stubborn girl with extraordinary abilities of her own. I loved these characters. They were so well done that I could see Allie starring in a book of her own.

I have to say I LOVED Matthew. He is strong, determined, self sacrificing and he manages to be all these great things without being some annoying good two shoes character that you just want to slap. Sometimes I hate the do gooders but he isn’t like that for some reason – probably because he is so fierce about his convictions and I can feel violence in him like a tight coil ready to spring. Yeah if I were 16 I would be crushing hard core.

What I loved best about Bones of Faerie was that originally I read it a few years ago not realizing it would be a trilogy. After reading it I was content thinking that the story was over. It stood well on its own and I didn’t feel like it was just the precursor to another book. This is so important to me as I hate books that aren’t complete by themselves. So if a reader wanted to, they could pick up only this book and be satisfied at the end without feeling the need that they absolutely had to read the next book. Though I’m sure like me they would want to! ( )
