Review of Janni Lee Simner's Bones of Faeries


The war between humanity and Faerie devastated both sides. Or so 15-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. 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. Then Liza discovers she has the Faerie ability to see--into the past, into the future--and she has no choice but to flee her town. 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. 
Janni Lee Simner's first novel for young adults is a dark fairy-tale twist on apocalyptic fiction--as familiar as a nightmare, yet altogether unique.

Wow this is a great book this book is a mix of fantasy and dystopian and it mixes it really well. There's no love story between the two main characters even though they are interested in each other. The story doesn't focus on it and neither does the main female character because she has a job to do. The other thing I loved in this story is that all the characters are gray meaning there are no distinct good and bad characters. They all make dicitions based on there on experience and knowledge and there dissionions have consequences. I highly recommend this book  5/5 diamonds
